Grow Your Business With Lifestyle Personal Branding Trina Baker Photography

What Is Personal Branding?

A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer's decision to choose one product or service over another. – Seth Godin

Is Personal Branding For Me?

Lifestyle Personal Branding is for everyone! Are you an entrepreneur, lady boss, blogger, stylist, personal trainer, lifestyle coaches, interior designers that post on social media daily? It can sometimes be challenging, with all the other hats you wear in you business, to come up with fresh ideas daily.

You are already killing it on social media so you already understand the power of photography. You snap photos and videos on your phone, or you have an "Instagram husband" who takes your photos. You already know how important it is to have photos that actually match your personal brand, which is much more than just needing a good bio pic. You need content and a lot if it to share across several online platforms daily so that you can finally quit waking up in a panic wondering "what am I going to post today?" Through trial and error, you have also discovered that the actual photos of you get crazy interaction! How many photos of you were in your Top Nine of 2019?

A Personal Branding Session goes beyond the traditional head-shot.

How Is Personal Branding Different?

Personal branding photography is a relatively new aspect of visual branding, with savvy business owners jumping on board to take their branding to the next level. A personal branding photography session differs from a typical headshot/portrait session in several ways. With headshots, the focus is simply you, usually shot from the waist up. Headshots are incorporated into personal branding sessions, but I don’t stop there. I delve deep into not just who you are visually, but telling the story of what you do and why you do it via detail shots, lifestyle shots, photos of you in action, you with your products, etc. The possibilities are endless and each session is customized to best reflect the type of business you run and the message you wish to convey about your brand through images.

These sessions are more customized than a headshot session, so there are lots of factors to consider including the location(s), outfits, branding colors your brand messaging, etc. Therefore, our pre-shoot experience will be more involved and in depth in the planning stages. I help you decide how to best translate your brand into images that you can use on social media, your website and in advertising. Each brand is different and each session is personalized.

These sessions also differ from my regular sessions in that we include the digital files. You will end up investing more into this type of session than you would with a headshot session, simply because you’re getting a wider variety of images, and more time spent with planning, consulting, and finally, shooting. With these images the end goal is to help you be more profitable in your business, so think of these images as a true investment in your brand.

Commercial Photography vs Portrait Photography

Commercial photography is involves the taking of photographs for commercial uses (product shots, head-shots, etc). These photographs are often used for the promotional marketing of a business including website placement, product previews, and business card/marketing material images. Typically the contract is between a company and the photography business and are seeking for a commercial usage license. Commercial licenses are typically for usage as businesses as seeking to have high-resolution digital files for use in marketing.

Portrait photography is for personal use by a private individual. These are typically to document a time in their life i.e. weddings, family sessions or boudoir, not for high-traffic viewing.

Each session is customized to reflect your brand.

Where Can I Use My Images?

Place them throughout your website.

When you personalize your business with photographs you create trust. It also visually tells the story of your business, your brand and your unique value proposition. At the very LEAST, you want to have your headshot on your website. People want to know your are a real person, and are more likely to contact you vs. a business website without a headshot. People do business with PEOPLE, not business.

Use them in posts on your social media platforms.

LinkedIn, Facebook business page, Instagram posts, Twitter, etc. Posts that include an image receive 120% - 180% more visibility and engagement.

Refresh your profile pictures every few months so that people see a new image of you.

This puts you back in the front of their mental database. Just remember to use the same image across all platforms so people can quickly recognize you.

Put one in your email signature.

Personalize your email and help people remember who you are. You are more likely to remember a face even if you can’t remember their name.

Use them to create a rack card, brochure, mailer or other print marketing pieces.

You can even put a photo on your business card — it helps people remember you.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. – Dr. Suess
The goal is to help you become more profitable in your business.
