As an empowered businesswoman, I don’t have to lecture you on the importance of a powerful brand. Your audience needs to see you - the real you - before they can trust you.

Stop drawing from the same 5-10 outdated (and, let’s face it, awkward) pictures, and allow me to build a professional portfolio of photos that highlight your skills and emphasize your personality. You’ve worked hard to become the powerhouse you are today, so let’s show your audience that you’ll show up consistently and professionally.

I value every person that steps foot in front of my camera and strive to create a stress-free environment. This is more than a photoshoot, it’s an empowering experience that celebrates where you are in your career and where you’re headed next.

Expert posing and lighting will help you look amazing on camera, and you’ll find yourself excited the next time you see the prompt “select a
profile picture.”
Photos that finally represent who you
are and who you’re working to become.

This means it’s time to step up your
brand and put your best foot forward
with luxury branding portraiture.


Headshots are professional portraits that focus on your face, showcasing your natural beauty and conveying professionalism, approachability, and confidence.

They are versatile and ideal for professional profiles, social media platforms and business websites.

In an ever-connected digital world, where virtual introductions often precede the in-person ones, a thoughtfully composed headshot becomes a powerful tool to make your mark with authenticity and poise.

How Often Should I Update My Headshot?

Keeping your headshot and branding images as current as possible is the best way to build trust and credibility with potential clients.


You should be transparent about every change you’ve made professionally, whether it’s a new hair color, a revamped website, or even a career change; all of these make up who you are and how you want to be perceived.


The last thing you want to risk is misleading potential clients, employers, or partners with outdated photos, which is why we recommend updating your images annually.

Can You Photograph Content For My Social Media Accounts?

Of course! It would be naive to ignore how important a social media presence is nowadays. We call these social media photos “branding images.” Not only do we make sure these headshots are optimized for LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and your site, we can also create custom content using your employees and locations to provide you with images that are perfect for social media content.

I Don’t Really Know My Brand Yet… Can I Still Have Photos Taken?

Of course! Every time you come in for a branding portrait session, something about your brand or professional identity is going to evolve, and that’s okay! Even if you don’t have a strong grasp on how you want to be perceived yet, let’s schedule a time to talk.


My team and I will help plan and style every aspect of your session, and together we’ll create an elevated series of images that embodies everything that makes you unique. The best part? It’s all stress-free!
