What if you had a library of photos featuring you at your best that made people stop scrolling?
What if, when you scheduled your social media, you had a fresh, on-brand image for every post?
What if your photographer once worked with executives of companies like Audi and Lands' End, and can create visuals that will make your audience lean in to hear more?
People follow and buy from those they like and trust.
Think about it: I bet you'd rather hire someone you can already imagine having a working relationship with over a random company you found on Google yesterday afternoon.
This is where personal brand photography comes in!

Let the real you shine through all that you do.
Your words matter and so do your pictures!
You're not just another business. Your personal journey plays a huge role in propelling your work. Whether a life change sparked a passion, or you changed careers to become a mom and reinvent yourself, your story is central to your work and how you sell it.
Your followers need to know enough about that story to be able to retell it, and sense a bit of what you're like when you're not on the job. When they know what you're about and can feel your passion and concern coming from each gorgeous post, they'll keep coming back and want to be a part of what you're building.
You've got a business to run, though. Let me help you create the images you need in a single day.
You don't need another task, you need a partner in photography who understands you and how to make images that will get your ideal follower to stop scrolling.
Together, we'll map out your story and tell it visually. We will show who you are and what's important to you in a series of consistent images. You can finally ditch the grab-bag of old headshots and selfies and show who you really are, post by post, in a way that brings people back to you for whatever you're serving up next.
What You Can Expect...
Why Am I the Right Person to Help You?
I am not another photographer who stumbled into working with business owners. I spent 18 years as an advertising strategist helping executives at top-tier brands like Audi, Lands' End, and BP/Amoco shape their messages. I also have a master's degree in Radio, TV, and Film. That means I can understand quickly who you're trying to reach, and I have experience and tools to help you cut through the clutter.
I started my photography business not long after I left advertising so I could leave more time for the work of being a mom. If being a parent is part of your brand, I know what you're up against. Running a small business myself, I understand how busy you are and how isolated you can become - and how relieving it is to bring on a qualified helper who "gets it."
Living the challenges of being a mom while running a brand, I relate to how deeply your kids can be a part of your story, even your brand story. While I work with all kinds of business owners near to Winston-Salem, NC and far, I have a flair for helping entrepreneurs who are also moms incorporate their family into their visual story with the right tone.
