Headshot Photographer + Personal Branding

Your professional headshot investment is worth every shiny quarter!

As your headshot photographer we can open the conversation into your multi-media world. If we thought life moved quickly before, we are moving at Jetson-speed today with social media. And it’s very crowded out there.

Investing in your headshot photography + personal brand portfolio is a significant part of your business story. And vital if you want to stand out in your crowded niche today.

If you want to be seen + heard in your niche you must be in front of your audience often.

That begins with your headshot photographer

Your professional headshots need to be crisp, clean, and similar throughout your platforms so your community recognizes you wherever they are online {Linkedin, Facebook, Instagram, website, Pinterest…}

After you have your professional headshots, from your SMP headshot photographer, then you begin to build on your branding portfolio to collect images that tell your business story. A branding portfolio goes beyond your headshots.

It is a collection of images that we curate to grow your KNOW-LIKE-TRUST factor online. We style your branding session based on your business colors, mission, and sprinkle in your personality so that you can pull from these images to build your brand on all the social platforms you use for your business.

As a professional headshot photographer + business owner myself, I know the value of images in building your business community and in-turn your client base. People work with people the know and who they can trust. We build that through sharing our images that tell our story.

Andrea made the whole experience very relaxing

“Andrea made the whole experience very relaxing.  She provided very helpful tips for preparing my hair and makeup, along with my wardrobe combinations.  The photos she sent were amazing.”

My headshot session with Andrea was AMAZING!

I am so incredibly pleased with all aspects of her process!  From the moment I met her, I knew she would be able to capture the type of image I was looking for.  With a recent career change and move, I wanted a creative new headshot and Andrea delivered and then some!  With so many different images to choose from, we packed so much fun into a half-hour session!  She rocks!! I can’t wait for my next session with her

Working with Andrea was amazing!

Her positive, and fun vibe, her beautiful studio, makes you feel so comfortable, the background music that she perfectly picked to synchronize with my business pictures. I love her work. Very professional, and at the same time super fun to work with. If you are like me shy indeed, she will bring the best out of you. Be back for more Thank you!!
