Branding for Creative Women

Are you a female entrepreneur setting up your own business and want to tell your story but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you are already established but aware your brand identity is lacking or more exactly not even developed?  Read on, this is just for you.

About me

I refer to all women who have set up their own business as a Creative and Entrepreneur because this is exactly who you are.

As a creative woman in business myself who set up my own photography business over 15 years ago, I understand where you are coming from and can help you to develop your brand identity through photography and a providing you with a bank of social media ready images.

So are you ready for the next step? How to create your own personal library and your brand identity.  This is the exciting part.

Mission

Never has social media become so important so we need to create a portfolio to reflect you and tell your Creative Story and journey.

Not only can your clients ‘Meet the Creative ’ in work mode and relaxed mode but they can glimpse behind the scenes.  Think of it as making a film in photos and unveiling yourself bit by bit to social media (will come to this in a minute) with you at the helm and in full control.

Working together we will establish well a cohesive set of professional photographs which represent what you do and who you are. Developing a stock of images which you can use to keep you relevant and fresh.

We will create a mood board of images for you to use and keep your social media updates current and relevant and most importantly reflect your goals, services and your beautiful, creative and imaginative self.

Consultation

Firstly, email me your business, any website|Instagram|FB accounts etc so I can explore your business and your social media presence.  Don’t worry if you don’t have any of these as yet as the point is for me to help you develop your unique brand identity and presence on line.

Let me know what the essence of your business is, and where you want to go or where you think it is lacking.

I will explore your business.

Next we will set up a phone call (allow approx. 30 minutes) to see what areas might make the most impact whether you are looking for a quick fix or a long term plan.

We will go through your budget and create a bespoke plan of action tailored made to your requirements.  Have your diary to hand.

Once we have our first date in the diary, your invoice for your choice of shoot, (See Investment option to purchase all 7 shoots below) will be sent to you to settle in advance.

Have a look at some of the fab ways (below) we can sky rocket your media profile together 

Meet the Creative Head Shots| £150

We can launch you with a series of simple professional studio portrait headshots to get you started straight away.

This will show who you are and introduce you to your target audience immediately.

It’s a quick hello if you like and ‘look at me’ and the person behind the business.

Your personal voice is launched just like that.

I know from personal experience when I post a photo of myself on any of my social media sites I always get more ‘likes’ and ‘comments’ than any other posts. It’s so important to develop a sense of who you are with your work and give your audience a sneaky peak of you from time to time.    You are your own best advert after all.

30 minutes, with two different backdrops and change of outfits in my log cabin studio.  

This shoot can be done outdoors if preferred or at your home.

Approx 40+ hi res images

That’s 3 different brand identity photos for use on social media per month.

Add £50 for outdoors or at home shoot to cover travel costs/additional time

Meet the Creative | In the Wild Portrait | £250 or £800

Another great way to improve and develop your portraits and keep your audience interested is to opt for Seasonal headshots. During one hour aim to capture you in relaxed mode against the backdrop of changing seasons essentially to show you at the different times of the year and at a woodland/natural location.

These portraits may also be done at your home but would incorporate both indoor and outdoor shoots ideally during the hour. For instance the winter season might be reflected in berries in a bowl on the table| warm steaming hot chocolate|woolly jumper.

Session One Photos: Spring (March, April, May)

Session Two Photos: Summer (June, July, August, September)

Session Three Photos: Autumn (October, November)

Session Four Photos: Winter (December, January, February)

 A single one hour In the Wild Portrait £250

60 + hi res images

5 different brand identity photos for use on social media per month.

 Or

 All four one hour In the Wild Portraits £1000, discounted to £800

This works out as £200 for all four shoots done seasonally.

240+ hi res images images

20 different brand identity photos for use on social media per month.

These shoots must take place locally to me or may incur travel costs.

 Meet the Creative at Work | Work Place |£250

We can also shoot you exclusively at your work place at your desk, studio, office in situ basically in multiple working at home/office locations so you will be able to dip into a pool of fantastic ‘you at work’ images.

This may be something as relaxed as you sitting on your sofa with a laptop at home, reading some relevant work material, or preparing the tools of your trade.

The most important thing is to place you and your work to create your work ‘identity’.

The space will reflect you and your work and even if you don’t feel your place is studio ready there are techniques I can use to close crop and zoom in to develop a mood board for you.

Never underestimate how much people love to see how you work and where.  It makes you more personable and approachable and creates your visual story.

During this time it may be possible to capture you in relaxed mode too.

One hour shoot with unlimited hi res digital images and change of outfits

60+ hi res images

5 different brand identity photos for use on social media per month.

Stock Shots |£200

If you are a budding florist/artist/creative in any way we will create a set of stock images which you can use on social media to reflect your artistic direction and keep you on trend.

This might reflect the tools of your trade whether that be your laptop, flowers, seeds, art equipment ie all the practical stuff, but we will also add in alternative props.

These images are your ‘lazy days’ posts and slowly unveil your business in delicious sized bites.  These images don’t include you but the tools of your trade but may require your hands in the shots.

Not forgetting any pets you have roaming around the place too.  Instagrammers especially love to get to know your pet.

You yourself will not feature especially in these stock shots however your hands may be required to hold your tools, write your literature and so on.

 One hour, with unlimited hi res digital images

100+ social media ready images for your ‘lazy’ days. 

8 different brand identity photos for use on social media per month.

 I also offer a discount for multiple yearly Stock Shot Shoots.

 If you have a brand with lots of regularly changing stock you need updated this is for you.

Any subsequent Stock Shot Shoot Price would be £150.

Travel costs may apply depending on location.
