We'll jump on a phone call to kick things off. It’s important to me that we’re a good fit before we start working together. Investing in professional brand photography for your business is a significant moment, and I want to give you every opportunity to feel comfortable in your decision.
We'll discuss everything. From the location of your shoot, to putting together your creative team, and of course wardrobe. I’ll be sure to plan a session as unique as your business!
Grab a cup of coffee (or tea if that’s your jam) and let’s get down to business. YOUR business. During this time we’ll deep dive into all the little details. We’ll cover your long term and short term goals as well as finalize your plans for your brand images.
Once we cover these details I put together your "Shoot Directive". You can find a full breakdown of the shoot directive here!
All of our planning and preparation finally comes together! It’s the big day and it’s going to be a blast. We’ll put on your favorite playlist (music is a must) and get right to working through your Shoot Directive!
Our shoot day is over but the project is far from done! You’ll receive sneak peeks from your session one week from our session date and your final gallery will follow shortly thereafter!
Next comes the fun part - putting these new photos to work (work it!) for your business! You’ll be able to update all your platforms from Pinterest to LinkedIn and of course your Instagram to create a cohesive visual representation of your brand. Gorgeous opt ins, never having to search for a usable photo again, and a brilliant new headshot for your bio are just a few clicks away! We’ll work through your Process, your Product (even if it’s not a tangible item), and your Portraits. With all of these covered you’ll have everything you need to tell the story of your brand.
Why Brand Photography- Take a second, and imagine what would it feel like if every inquiry that hit your inbox was the perfect fit. Imagine having a steady flow of business from clients who want to work with you again and again. How does it feel? Like perfectly chilled Prosecco on a warm summer day? Exactly. Brand Photography gives you the visual elements to elevate your brand and connect with your audience in a way that’s unique to your business.

"Working with Josie was truly a pleasure. Her entire process in planning & perfecting the details was a smooth & stress-free experience. She took the time to learn about the heart & soul behind my brand and used her artistic touch to bring it to life in the most real, authentic way. Josie made me feel like a boss and completely at ease during our shoot together. She's an incredible photographer, and a true gem of a human being. Our shoot day was filled with laughter, light and champagne- what more can you ask for! I now have a full-gallery of images that I can use to promote my business that honors the brand & its personality.
Not only has it helped streamline the marketing process, but I can already see a difference in how people are engaging with my brand. If you want a full gallery of stunning images that resonate with your dream clients, BOOK HER NOW! I'd recommend Josie x1000 over!"
I've passed off the images to both an Instagram and a Pinterest manager, and I'm never worried about what photos they'll use and/or if they'll feel on brand. It's also fun to create any brand graphics/collateral I need, knowing that my images reflect the elevated and thoughtful experiences I strive to create for my clients, while also giving me confidence in the way I present my brand.
If you're wondering if the investment into brand photography with Josie will be worth it, the answer is a resounding 100% yes. Just do it already, you'll be grateful you did and wonder why you didn't do it sooner. The only problem you'll have is deciding which photos to use where.
"As a brand photographer, I was incredibly careful when picking a photographer for my own business. After spending time looking at so many different options, I decided to reach out to Josie, and I'm so glad that I did! From our first phone call on, she made me feel incredibly relaxed and excited about the process of my branding session. She was helpful with her brand discovery call, and worked extensively with me on helping map out my shoot directive. When it came to shoot day, she gave amazing direction, stayed calm and organized despite how many things were going on around her, and made me genuinely laugh throughout the session, which added an authentic warmth to the photos.
When I got my gallery back, I was over the moon thrilled with how everything turned out - she really captured the essence of who I am in these photos, and I'm confident that they are going to give my business the personality that it's been lacking. I cannot recommend Josie enough!"
I cannot recommend shooting with Josie enough.
She made my whole team feel so relaxed in front of the camera and brought out our best qualities. Josie is naturally kind and calm, with a gentleness in directing that put me totally at ease. She listened to my concerns and ideas with openness and understanding.
The photos are so beautiful. I think its the first time I've had professional photos of myself that simultaneously make me feel beautiful and just like myself.
Being in front of Josie’s lens is such a treat! She has a marvelous way of making the sessions wonderfully enjoyable and she puts her clients entirely at ease.
Her presence is calming and fun, making her subjects feel confident and comfortable. Her creativity flows throughout the session and she is always willing to hear and incorporate her client’s ideas, be adventurous, and create something amazing.
The delivered product is even better than expected—the images were beautifully composed, filled with genuine emotion, and worth every penny (and many more!). I cannot recommend this talented and sweet photographer enough!
As a Wedding Planner, I think 90% of my clients tell me at some point during the planning process "I don't like having my picture taken" - which has made me aware that most people do not like the process of being in front of the camera. But what I always tell my Bride + Grooms, the key is in picking the right photographer that is not only skilled in their craft, but also in how they orchestrate the photoshoot.
Josie did all that - and more! I knew that she was the right photographer for my small business because while I needed "headshots" I wanted shots of me doing the things I do, in the places I typically work.
Being a service oriented business, and not having a "product" I wanted to tell a story of my process via images. Josie was enthusiastic, creative and fun through the entire shoot. I would highly recommend her to any business looking to tell their story through images!
