How It Works

The Brand StorySession Process

brand story shoot process


There's a lot of planning before your brand shoot.  I don't do things willy nilly.

Here's part of how my process works:

(There's more, but I won't give away ALL my secrets for surprising and delighting my clients here!)

  1. QUESTIONNAIRE -  helps me get clear about what photos you need and how you need to use them

2. VIDEO CHAT OR IN-PERSON MEETING - to discuss details and finalize arrangements

3. BRAND STORY SESSION - by now you'll be clear what *stories* we'll be capturing.

4. IMAGE SELECTION - happens at the end of your personal brand photography session.

5. IMAGE DELIVERY-  happens 7 days after your session.


stock photos are bleh


Yes, you could spend your precious time searching stock photos or pay some one else to do it for you, or even pay for a cheap monthly subscription service that gives you a month's worth of images (the same images every other subscriber to the service receives) but you're trying to build a personal brand so that really defeats the purpose doesn't it.


Frequently Asked Questions

How long will a consultation take?  I'm busy and I don't have a lot of time.

I'll ask intentional questions (in an online or in-person questionnaire with about 10 questions) geared towards helping me photograph to represent your brand authentically.  The more information you give me the better I can help you. In addition (on my own time) I'll research your current online presence by looking at your website and any social media accounts you have.

What's the difference between personal brand photography and commercial photography? lifestyle photography?

Traditional commercial photography is mostly product photography with sometimes extravagant sets and complicated licensing fees.

True lifestyle photography is a hands off approach to portrait photography where nothing is posed or directed.

Personal brand photography is for businesses or social influencers looking to grow their online presence by relying heavily on personal images; images that showcase their personal life, their work life, their crew, their work atmosphere.  It's used to grow an audience for business purposes or to promote a social cause, not for personal use.

It's a marriage of commercial and lifestyle photography with a focus on directed but natural unstaged  expressions, emotions and real life scenarios.

Do you travel?

Yes, I'm based in Lawton, OK but travel is definitely an option. Travel fees apply.

What’s your return policy?

Due to the custom nature of photography all sales are final.  There are no returns on digital products.
