Branding photography

Branding photography for female entrepreneurs….

I love nothing more than being around inspirational women, shooting images that are styled but aren’t overly posed, creating relaxed portraits to help position your brand.

I’m one of four sisters and we are all super close, speaking to each other every day.  This sense of sisterhood really resonates with me and is a big part of these branding sessions, authentically connecting with your story and showing your creative talent.  I also have a close-knit group of girlfriends that I met many moons ago as toddlers, we used to be neighbours – I literally am the girl next door!

I cherish this sense of women coming together, uplifting and supporting each other and I love to do that through these shoots, to see female owned brands come into focus.  I’ll help you to interact with your product, to create mood boards and come up with locations.  I’ll bring a selection of props and backdrops for those all-important flat-lay images, focusing on colour palettes and a sense of texture.

But first, we start with a simple chat about ideas so I can understand your vision and begin to imagine the visuals.

I would love a natter over a cup of tea – get in touch to tell me more about your business so I can get to know your brand story…

I have two different branding session options available, have a browse and let me know which fits your needs best…

 

Style, Shoot & Grow

  • As small business owners we are always juggling a million to-do lists, so this is a great option when limited on space and/or time.
  • Supply me with a box of your products/props/fave stationery/goodies etc. I work my magic in the studio, also using my own selection of backdrops & props that work well with your brand aesthetic.
  • We will have a number of emails or phone calls prior to the shoot and discuss your brand vision and style.
  • I will then put together a mood-board, showing the overall theme, colours and vision for the shoot.
  • You will receive a selection of beautiful styled images for your social media & website via digital download.

My studio branding sessions are £225.

I require a £50 booking fee, with the remaining £175 due on the day of the shoot.

 

Style, Shine & Flourish

  • A great option if you want to share more about who you are as an entrepreneur, as well as your vision for your business.
  • We will spend a half day together (approx 4 hours) creating images that represent your own personal brand, the services you offer, your workspace and what makes you unique!
  • We will have a number of emails or phone calls prior to the shoot and to discuss your brand vision and style.
  • I will then put together a mood-board, showing the overall theme, colours and vision for the shoot.
  • You will receive a selection of beautiful styled images of you, your products and your workspace for your social media & website via digital download.

Half day branding sessions are £395.

I require a £50 booking fee, with the remaining £345 due on the day of the shoot.

I contacted Sophie to help me with some branding photographs. I wanted the images to convey what South Coast Weddings is, friends, relaxed and approachable. By Sophie communicating with me ahead of time, we had a solid plan of which images we wanted to capture. I now regularly use these images on my website, Instagram and Facebook. Sophie captured my personality and my love of tea! I would highly recommend Sophie for your branding photographs.

Sam / South Coast Weddings

I have always been reluctant to have my photos taken. Being a business woman, it is imperative that your professional branding is up to scratch. This means you need photos… of yourself! I contacted Sophie about my idea to have a beach photo shoot for my branding. Sophie was like a “photographer-fairy-godmother”
From day one I felt that Sophie would make me feel comfortable, by planning the mood board together we were on the same page from the start. On the day of the shoot Sophie was professional, relaxed, patient and fun. We took our time, in various locations, getting the perfect shots, in the perfect sunset light. I couldn’t be happier with my photos, which look natural, capturing my personality perfectly. Just what I wanted. I love them! Thank you Sophie, you are a gem!

Sophie is amazing, every time I look at the pictures Sophie did for my business I smile I’m so so pleased with them. I have such fabulous comments on them and they are perfect for my brand- totally recommend Sophie xx

Julie / English Garden Florist

I used Sophie for a branding shoot with my team. After looking at her Instagram and website I contacted Sophie as her style seemed similar to mine. After a chat with her, I was so confident that she got me and understood my brief.

On the day of the shoot Sophie was amazing. Many of the team hadn’t done anything like it before so were a little nervous, but Sophie put everyone right at ease, guiding them on how to achieve the best shots. A true professional with an approach that puts everyone at ease, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!!
