This is going to be a fun post friends. I decided to start really telling my story, and with that came needing some images that are definitive of who I am and who my brand is. Insert the Pinterest board nights and long phone conversations about who I am, what my brand is, and who it’s for, and all of these things. It’s a lot to look at, and I knew exactly who was going to be perfect at helping me out. My amazingly talented girl Jess is one of the few people who make me feel comfortable in my own skin. There’s maybe 5 who I am down to have take my portrait. Maybe more like 3 but still. When branding images came up, I knew that one of my closest friends would be perfect for the job, and it just so happens that brand portraits are something she loves to do!
I messaged her like I do every morning, but this time it was with purpose. I told her I wanted to book a brand session with her and go all out. I wanted to rent an AirBnb and everything. I truly needed these to be just right, and I knew she’d get that. She replied with excitement and preparedness and we were off. I had some homework to do, listing all of the launches, projects and announcements that I knew I’d have this year, as well as an in-depth look at my brand. It was hard work, but so worth it. I finished feeling like I knew exactly what I needed, and having a plan. We made a list of props/items I needed to bring and what to wear from head to toe. Jess even took the time to help me find a killer location that was just far enough away to end up being a little getaway. She took so much time in helping me prep, and I know that most of it was to help her prep, but it came right back to me. I am so grateful that I was able to find someone who wanted to tell my story and tell it with purpose and grace.
Instead of me trying to explain to all of you what my brand story is, and who I am, I want to just share these images. These images really tell my story for me, and it’s probably the best way my story has been told. There are some aspects to my session that I was so afraid to showcase, things that I don’t share, and parts of my story you may not know. I can’t thank Jess enough for treating it so kindly, and making me feel like a million bucks the entire time!
I’m pairing this post with one of my favorite songs, that most certainly was played on the record player during our session. We had The Beatles (my favorite band), Amy Winehouse, Lana Del Ray, and Halsey! A little something for almost all of my tastes. I love music so much and to be able to include it in my session was so special! Down to the snacks I brought along these are all me. 100% candid and real, and I am ready to share them with you all.
I know you’ve now looked through all of these amazing, swoon worthy, kick ass portraits and you’re looking to have your own branding session right? I cant recommend Jess loud enough! Just head on over and let her know I sent ya! She’ll take the best care of you and your brand story, and help you bring it to life. It’s so worth the work and investment. I now have so many images to help tell my story, and share a part of myself with all of you!
