Your Brand, Your Story

“Your brand is a story unfolding across all customer touchpoints.” – Jonah Sachs

In the canvas of branding, a photography session is not just a collection of images; it’s a portrayal of your story, your ethos, and your unique brand identity.

Preparing for a branding photography session can be a journey of excitement and creativity, but it can also feel overwhelming.

Here are 15 practical tips to ensure that your branding session not only captures the essence of your brand but also turns the process into an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

1.  Understand Your Brand: Before the camera clicks, know your brand inside out. What are your core values? What message do you want to convey? Your brand’s personality should be the heartbeat of your photoshoot.

2.  Define Your Goals: What do you aim to achieve with these photos? Whether it’s enhancing your website, social media presence, or marketing materials, having clear goals sets the direction for the session.

3.  Choose the Right Photographer: Your photographer should not just take great pictures but should also understand and resonate with your brand. Research and choose a photographer whose style aligns with your vision.

4.  Plan the Look and Feel: Discuss with your photographer the mood and tone you want for your photos. Do you want a formal, corporate look or a more casual, approachable feel? The style should reflect your brand.

5.  Select Appropriate Outfits: Your clothing choices should complement your brand. If you’re a corporate lawyer, a suit might be appropriate. If you’re a fitness coach, athletic wear could be the way to go. Plan multiple outfits for variety.

6.  Consider Props: Props can add depth to your photos. Choose items that tell your brand’s story – be it your work tools, products, or even your favorite book.

7.  Think About Location: The location of your shoot can speak volumes. Whether it’s in your office, outdoors, or in a studio, ensure the setting aligns with your brand’s image.

8.  Discuss Makeup and Hair: Professional hair and makeup can enhance your confidence and appearance. However, stay true to your usual style to maintain authenticity.

9.  Practice Your Poses: Feeling comfortable in front of the camera is crucial. Practice some poses beforehand, but also be open to your photographer’s guidance during the session.

10.  Prepare Mentally: Approach the session with a positive mindset. Remember, these photos represent your passion and hard work. Enjoy the process!

11.  Communicate with Your Team: If your session involves your team, ensure everyone is on the same page. Discuss the importance of the session and how they can contribute to its success.

12 .  Rest Well Before the Session: A good night’s sleep can make a world of difference. You want to look and feel your best.

13.  Bring a Playlist: Music can set the mood and help you relax. Bring along a playlist of your favorite tunes.

14.  Have a Pre-Shoot Meeting: A quick meeting with your photographer before the session can iron out any last-minute details and set the tone for a successful shoot.

15. Trust Your Photographer: Lastly, trust in the skills and vision of your photographer. They’re there to guide you and capture the best of your brand

A stylist’s eye for detail and understanding of visual appeal can elevate your branding imagery to new heights.

A branding photography session is more than a mere business requirement; it’s a celebration of your journey, your brand’s story. It’s about creating images that not only speak to your audience but also resonate with the core of who you are as a business.
