A transformational experience – Personal Branding Photography


Would you have thought that a Personal Branding photo shoot could be a transformational experience?
Have you thought about what embarking on this journey could do for your self-esteem?
Let me give you a little bit of insider info…

Each time I work with a client I send them an introductory form to fill out. This is so that I can find out more about them and their business, and to get an idea of where their mindset is around having their photographs professionally taken. More often than not, I get a similar reply to the question on how they feel about being photographed – anxious, self-consciousness, and uncomfortable.

I tend to expect these types of responses from almost everyone because it’s not very often that you find people who enjoy being in front of the camera… on purpose!
But, this does allow me to work with my clients before, during, and after their shoots to build their confidence and turn a negative preconceived idea into an enjoyable and uplifting experience. This is my aim with each and every client, and one of the best aspects of my job.

Mindset Shift

Once you realise that working on the process of developing your personal brand through the use of authentic and inviting imagery is so much bigger than your fear of being photographed, you’ll experience a mindset shift that can only take you onto bigger and better things.
This is the transformational experience I’m referring to, where you grow into the person you need to be. The person who is focused on seeing the business that you have built grow to it’s full potential.

Through this mindset shift you will begin to accept that:

  • You deserve to feel confident with the images you put onto your website.
  • You deserve to have great photos to use in promoting your brand on social media.
  • You deserve to share your story with your audience.
  • You deserve to do this now, and you don’t have to wait until everything is “perfect”.

Investing in yourself

Personal branding is all about a constant cycle of sharing your message and evolving with your brand as you move forward on your exciting journey. Know that when you commit to your photo shoot you’re not only investing money back into your brand, you’re also investing in your confidence, self-worth, and personal growth

You’re taking the time to portray yourself as a professional in your field and as someone who is real, credible and trustworthy. This is your opportunity to introduce yourself and allow your audience to feel that they are already building a relationship with someone who they want to work with.

You deserve this. Your brand deserves this. And, your audience deserve to know more about the real you.
