The Experience

The Brand StorySession Process

Giving you a top notch and stress free experience is important to me.  On the day of your StorySession branding shoot I don’t want you to have to worry about anything. 


That’s why there’s a lot of planning before your Personal Brand StorySession.  It’s a collaborative experience.  As you go through it, you’ll get more connected with your audience, your brand, and yourself.


Here’s part of how the StorySession experience goes:

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

A closer look:

  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 planning a Personal Brand StorySession take?

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.

Personal Brand Photograph is a marriage of commercial and lifestyle photography with a focus on directed but natural unstaged expressions, emotions and real life scenarios so you can have an authentic online presence!

Do you travel?

Yes absolutely, I’m based in Lawton, OK but I do travel!

What if I don’t like my experience or my photos?

Listen, this is my job not my hobby and I’m going to make sure you have an amazing experience that gets you the photos you need for your business.  That said, deposits are non-refundable and there are no returns on digital products, that’s standard of course.  If you don’t like your experience I’ll do what it takes to make it right.

Do you have a question that I didn’t answer here?
