Last Summer I had the pleasure of doing a personal branding shoot with my good friend & luxury wedding planner, Liesl Lamare. Liesl needed fresh images to coincide with the launch of her new brand and beautiful website. I was excited about her vision for the session and we chatted at length in the days leading up to the shoot, choosing locations that would complement the look and feel of her luxury brand.
We started the day at The Corinthia Hotel London and over a cup of coffee, I started capturing Liesl’s wonderfully warm and inviting personality. Her smile is infectious and her bubbly personality really comes across on camera.
I really enjoy doing personal branding sessions. With a clear idea of what my clients would like to “say” with their images I help them to relax in front of the camera and with subtle direction and plenty of laughs we have a lot of fun while creating these images together. As a small business owner, it’s crucial to understand how important it is to have a good brand image and how beautiful head shots really can make a difference when a client is considering investing in you and your services. Using up to date, professional images on your website, social media and other brand communications, not only looks professional, but it adds personality to your brand – putting a face to the name.
Investing in a personal branding shoot is also a great opportunity to end up with various options of head shots / other portraits to use in your brand communications. After my morning with Liesl, we chose around 20 final images, which ties in perfectly with her brand’s colour scheme and shows her in a variety of settings.
A few words from Liesl about her experience:
“As a wedding planner, I’ve got to know and work alongside Anneli for previous wedding clients, which meant I knew she was the perfect choice for new headshots for my re-brand. It’s always a pleasure working with Anneli, not only because of her work ethic and photography style, but because of her calm, fun and happy demeanor. Being incredibly camera shy, I knew I needed someone that would make me feel comfortable in front of the lens and Anneli was an absolute pro at that. It meant a lot to me that Anneli also took the time to understand my new branding and what my luxury wedding planning business offers, and with that, she captured photographs that show off my personality, business style and brand perfectly. I have received so many compliments for the photos and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anneli to anyone looking for a branding shoot.”
