Toronto Personal Branding Photography
Modern, Artistic Photography for Creative Small Businesses.
It's seems like there's a never ending stream of competition for small businesses in the GTA. And if you can't get ahead somehow, why would anyone choose to buy from you? Because they connect with you and your story. So instead of just getting Linkedin headshots, let's tell the story of you and your why.
"People don't buy what you do; they buy WHY you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe." -Simon Sinek
Hi! I'm Emily and I have something to say...
Ok, hear me out. What if there was a better way to get professional headshots?
You used to only need one nice portrait of yourself to advertise your business. But now, whether it's for your business website, or even personal social media, you need more than just a headshot. You need a personal brand.
We Can Do Better Than Headshots.
What if, instead of running into a studio and grabbing 5 photos while trying not to look suuuper awkward, we took a little more time and told a story? It can be the story of you as a person, of your business or art, even of a specific product you're excited about launching. During your branding session, we'll definitely get the simple headshot you need, but you'll also have so many great images to tell a story that people actually want to hear.
We'll have a quick chat about your photography needs, you can tell me a bit about you and your business, clients you're hoping to reach, etc. I'll go over my process, the investment, and you can ask me any questions you have.
After you've booked, I'll send over a questionnaire so I can REALLY get to know you and your business. Then we'll schedule a zoom call to go over all the ways we can tell your brand's story in our shoot, and decide on all the details like date, location and styling. We'll also have a private Pinterest board to collaborate on so you can make sure I'm catching your vision.
This is where all the hard work of planning pays off, and you can just show up and enjoy yourself! I'll commission one of my favorite hair and makeup artists to style you the morning of our session so you'll be glowing and photo ready without having to lift a finger. And I'll give you guidance and help you relax during photos so you'll never have to wonder what to do with your hands.
After Your Session
About 4 to 6 weeks after our shoot, you'll receive an online gallery with all of your beautiful, hand edited images. (I'm a little OCD about making sure each and every photo look PERFECT!) You'll have a commercial use license for all of your photos, so you can use them in anyway you need to market your brand. And since it can be overwhelming to know how to use so many great photos, I'm here for any questions that you have, or to show you how to optimize them for your website.
