When people hear that I shot Seattle Personal Brand Photography for a local real estate agent, their minds immediately go to the typical photos of beautiful homes and traditional headshots of agents in blazers!
Ditch the blazers, or not, your call! But either way, I challenge you to think about brand photography a little differently!
Working with Nicole from the Oertel Group is always so much fun! We focus her shoots around loving where you live! All of the beauty, small touches, and community that makes where you live so special and inviting. From personal home projects to larger, more elaborate pieces, Nicole shows what really makes a home special and not just which home you should buy. How is that for embodying your brand during a photoshoot? I love getting to plan personal branding sessions that revolve around the unexpected and shine a new light on something that is so traditional!
One of my favorite personal brand mini sessions that we worked on was at a local stone boutique! Even though it was one of my favorites, this one was quite a challenge. There was no natural light, a ton of people working, and the impossibility of being able to move literal slabs of stone around to get the perfect shots. We had to be creative and find ways to make the space work for us and not against us. And let me tell you, we definitely succeeded! This little session was a prime example of how we can make something not so beautiful into something super interesting and even unexpected for your sessions!
