Marketing & Branding
Keep it fresh.
Your website and social media presentation are vital to attracting your ideal customers. I'd love to work with you to capture your brand in a way that draws them in naturally.
I love capturing the “in-between” moments, the candid shots that bring out the little details you’ve worked so hard to perfect. These are the moments that tell the story.
So let’s connect - I want to help you tell it well.
What to Expect
Many amazing local businesses have entrusted me to capture their brand and connect them with their ideal clients.
I bring all that experience to your marketing session. I know how to showcase you, your team, your space, and your products or services in the best light and I’m there to help every step of the way. I spend time learning about your brand and creating a plan for your session from start to finish.
My marketing sessions are offered hourly, with a recommendation of starting with a two hour session for most businesses. We will set a time to meet and discuss the best times to capture your business and the important things you want to showcase. Sessions include everything from lifestyle branding to product photography to team and individual headshots. I can work during open hours to capture client interactions or help you coordinate models to
create exactly the feel you’re looking for in your images.

We've worked with other photographers before, and none of them put in the amount of time before the day of the shoot like Grace did with us. She took the time to have multiple phone calls with me before the shoot to brainstorm & plan location/timing, and even provided really helpful wardrobe advice for our team. During the shoot, she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. She was a joy to work with & we are so happy with all of the photos.
When it comes to my style & what you can expect:
I keep all my sessions PLAYFUL. I want to bring out your natural reactions and expressions, while also giving you direction to feel confident and calm. I look for both soft, glowy light as well as unique highlights and shadows to play with. I capture a healthy balance of classic portraits and candid images to make up your gallery. I'll remove most basic imperfections and use some soft skin smoothing, but I am not a photographer who uses photoshop heavily. When I say authentic and natural - that's what I mean.
Professional photo touch ups are available at an additional cost if you're looking for that airbrushed look on your images.
Your images will be delivered in mostly true to life color, with some in black and white. You can expect natural greens, natural color saturation, and warmer, higher contrast images that pop and make you feel the emotions. I pride my work on being timeless, not trendy.
