Let your pictures tell your story
Your business is totally unique. Which is why your brand photography should be, too!
I’m betting you’ve heard the term ‘unique selling point’ (or USP) once or twice. Sure, it’s a buzzword. But it amazes me how many small business owners don’t realise just what their USP is.
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING… IT’S YOU!
BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY FULL OF PERSONALITY AND FIRE
Think about it. What we know and understand about business is changing. Small business numbers are growing every day. And there’s a real demand for more personal, homemade and hand created businesses. You’ve seen the slogans: Shop Local! Support your small businesses!
With how easy it is to get online, it can be hard to get visible in the sea of social posts and websites. It’s become more important than ever to let your personality shine through your brand and really show people the face behind your business and what makes it unique.
That’s why I capture more than just a headshot.
No white backdrops, studio lights or you sitting formally on a stool in the middle. No fixed stare or smile and perfectly coiffed hair or exacting tie.
Let’s show the real you — the genuine smiles, casual clothes, a natural backdrop. Let’s show people what you do, tell the story of you and your small business, show the uniqueness your business rests upons.
But, all the while, still capturing professional images of you to share on your website and business profiles.
“OH MY GOSH!”
Okay so I know this photographer and you are going to love her. You’re going to laugh and smile so much, you’re not even going to have the time or mental energy to feel awkward or unsure.
HEADSHOTS AND BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY
A quick set of headshots or long brand photography shoots that’ll give you glorious images for your website and enough content for your socials to make you super happy!
COMMERCIAL AND EVENTS PHOTOGRAPHY
Hosting a workshop, a large scale event or you want to book brand photography or commercial photography by the half or full day? Then this is what you need!
I'VE BEEN WIELDING A CAMERA LIKE SOME KIND OF WEAPON...
…for almost 20 years now. And there’s nothing I love more than getting you in front of it, taking your pictures and having you clap your hands in delight when you see what comes out at the end.
YOUR EXPERIENCE MATTERS TO ME
As someone who doesn’t like getting in front of the camera herself (funny that!), I go out of my way to help you feel comfortable and I’ll always ask you at the end of it all if it was as painful an experience as you imagined. I’m aiming to hear you say ‘No’, for the record!
I'LL HAPPILY SHOW YOU THE BACK OF MY CAMERA...
…while we’re working together and I’ll do whatever it takes to get the shots that’ll make your smile beam across the continent.
BECAUSE THIS IS YOUR BUSINESS...
…and these are your photos. We’re gonna make some serious magic together… I can feel it!
Available in Chilliwack, Abbotsford and throughout the Fraser Valley.
Why should I book you over any other photographer?
I’m often told that I’m great at helping people to feel comfortable in front of the camera. That’s mostly because I’m not that comfortable, myself, with having my picture taken.
The other thing is that I’m all about learning about who you are, the person behind the face and smile, and finding a way to bring that personality through into your photographs.
Your photos are so much more than just some headshots to me!
How soon can we get started?
I book all brand shoots a minimum of one month in advance as I want you to go through the brand discovery process before your shoot so I can be sure you’re getting the photos you want and need.
This process involves a little bit of homework for you (in the form of a friendly questionnaire asking all about you and your business), a planning meeting for the both of us, and an inspiration board and photo checklist before the session to make sure I’m getting all the shots you need in the time we have.
While it is totally possible to book a shoot and miss out some of the prep, I cannot guarantee getting you all the shots you want so if you want to avoid that disappointment, aim to book sooner rather than later!
How long will it take to get my photos?
I give an outside estimate of 4-6 weeks for your photos to be delivered but this is largely dependent on existing commitments and work schedules so can be much faster.
If you’re on a tight deadline and need your photos in less than 4 weeks, you can add on a rush editing fee to guarantee a quicker delivery.
What's your booking process?
I ask for a C$50 booking fee for headshots and brand photography sessions. For events and commercial shoots, it’s a 20% booking fee.
Once you’ve selected your shoot package on the proposal and signed the T’s and C’s, I send over the booking fee invoice. Your shoot date is secure once you’ve paid that invoice and I’ll be in touch to start planning your session.
I'm excited! What happens now?
If you like what you’re seeing, we should talk! Get in touch now and we’ll plan a chat over Zoom.
I can’t wait to meet you and hear more about your business!
