One important thing about being a small business owner is that you have to plan time to get in front of the camera. This helps show your clients who you are so they like, know and trust you. This was exactly what Kryssie wanted for her branding session in Columbus, Ohio. After my own branding sessions, I’ve wanted to do more of them for others.
I make sure to always get updated branding photos for my business! Last summer, I scheduled a branding session with another photographer that specializes in this type of photography. I had SO MUCH FUN during my session! She seamlessly posed me the entire time. She didn’t make me feel weird that I didn’t know how to pose myself. She was nice and she made me laugh. I made it a point to do the same for Kryssie’s session! This was her third photo session with me. We met at a natural studio in Columbus, Ohio called The Millennial Suite. This large space is great for portraits especially a branding session.
Kryssie just so happens to be my Zyia rep. Zyia is an active wear brand of clothing. At first, it was just for women, but then they expanded it to men and children. Their clothing is more “higher end” because of the price. However, all of their clothing holds up really well, and now I have a TON of Zyia. I met Kryssie through friends of friends in an online Facebook Zyia party a few years ago. I had ordered some things from her. She found out shortly after that I was a photographer. She wanted to do a session to feature some clothing item and I said absolutely! That was back in February 2022 and that session was with three other Zyia reps. It ended up being a fun little branding/friends session. The next branding session I did was just for her in June 2022.
This time around, Kryssie wanted some more “office” photos showing her working, for her website. We made sure to set up her laptop, a notebook, smart phone, a Zyia catalog and planner. I had so much fun posing her and getting to know her even more! I loved making her laugh, making her feel comfortable, and pulling out a natural smile. If anyone asks me about why I love this job, that’s my FAVORITE thing – finding the genuine smiles.
Walking away from Kryssie’s session, I knew I wanted to do more! I LOVE making people comfortable in their own shoes and getting to know people because I truly do care about them. That’s why I want to start to offer more branding sessions. Kryssie’s branding session in Ohio was so much fun, and I can’t wait to do more!
