As a small business owner, I know how much work and thought it takes to keep your name out there in the world. Not to mention, there are so many avenues to share the work you do, it can be overwhelming to keep up with it all. Especially when we want to focus on doing what we love rather than marketing and networking.
While Social Media like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are great avenues for promoting our businesses, you really can’t do much without adequate content. This, along with the need for website imagery, is why so many small business owners desperately need a library of images to pull from.
I recently did a branding session with Lisa DiAntonio, the founder of Green Park Studios in Andover. Lisa is a Decor Coach who will guide you through a space re-design. When you work with Lisa you are in the driver’s seat, and you have her as support along the way. Lisa focuses on ideas and direction that fits into your budget and timeline, helping you create a home that you love.
Many clients come to me looking for headshots, but in addition to that, I wanted to provide Lisa with some images showing how she works collaboratively with clients, in order to design their space.
Lisa provides comprehensive design coaching and you can read more about her process and services at this link.
Together you may look at samples (she had loads of them!), and see how different materials can come together to create your look.
Lisa needed some headshots too, so of course we worked those into our session. A branding session will always have enough time to allow for a wardrobe change or two as well.
Rather than stuffy headshots in front of a backdrop, I really want my clients to look comfortable, confident, and approachable. These headshots are meant to be used everywhere — from Instagram, to LinkedIn, to your website About Me page, and more.
Clients tell me all the time how much they hate having their picture taken, and I do everything I can to make sure the process is fun and easy. I think one key to my success is that we’ll chat and try different poses, and I’ll gently guide you towards the most flattering looks. And, I’m always open to your ideas too — Lisa loves this bar cart, and suggested we work it in. It’s gorgeous, as is she!
Because you won’t ever feel rushed during a branding session, you’ll have plenty of time for a wardobe change and/or touch up your make-up.
