But you find yourself thinking,
"Who's going to get me and my brand's style?"
"I hate getting my photo taken. They always look horrible."
"I don't even know where to start when it comes to my brand and photography!"
Maybe you know exactly what you want.
(Or maybe you don’t. That’s cool too.)
Because the day you need those brand photos is here before you know it.
You score an interview on a MAJOR podcast. The host says, “just send your professional headshot to my assistant, k?”
Your designer emails, “I’m almost done your sales page but I’m missing the pics of you.”
Or you create brand new lucrative partnership. (ka-ching!)
That long-armed selfie isn’t going to cut it.
(Even though your hair did look particularly great that day.)
They perfectly captured exactly how my brand looks and feels - the balance of professionalism mixed with playfulness and warmth. - Katie Momo The CopyPro
Your brand is everything. It's your message, your story, how you relate and serve your clients, and relays what gifts you have to serve to the world. A brand that is congruent and genuine will build trust and set you apart in your marketplace as "the person" for your industry.
And it all begins with that initial first impression when a potential client lands on your website and sees your photos for the first time. A picture is worth a thousand words, and in the world of branding that translates to potential revenue and future business.
So how does having imagery that isn't relatable or congruent with your brand on your website or marketing materials effect your brand? You guessed it...it tremendously devalues what you have to offer, even when you KNOW you have a product or service that is outstanding!
