Even we Photographers need a Personal Branding Shoot. Katie from Edie and Chalk contacted me through Instagram to book me for her shoot. Katie is a designer and photographer based in Chew Magna near Bristol. She is a lover of all things Scandi and this showed in her props she bought for her shoot. I love learning about your business and the heart of why you do what you do. This helps me take portrait images that represent who you are at a deeper level. Katie is a quiet soul, a calming person with a huge heart.
Working with another photographer, Katie understands the importance of good natural light. The location she chose was an artist friend’s home that had huge windows and flooded the room with lots of beautiful soft light, a photographer’s dream lighting!
Props are a really important part of your brand. Choose props that you use daily in your work, that are a part of who you are ie: coffee mugs, notebooks, laptops, mobile phones, work tools. Katie bought along lots of beautiful props in her brand colors and influences of Scandi. Edie and Chalk were about to celebrate their first birthday and Katie bought a huge helium balloon for a prop. Such a fun way to show up on your social media celebrating important milestones in your business. Katie came along with soft pastel hues of flowers in her brand colours from Is a Bloom Floral Design as well as framed prints and furniture in her beloved scandi style. Flowers are a wonderful accessory for a shoot, perfect to add softness to flat lay, used when styling a table.
Capturing you behind the scenes is a big part of a Personal Brand Shoot. You can see here images of Katie at work with her camera and styling props for an image she photographed.
Working with Katie was a lot of fun, such a joy to work with another photographer.
