Paige is a creative, smart, and oh-so-talented lawyer with a wide client base within her two businesses. She has an online shop called The Creative Law Shop. It offers contracts and legal necessities for creative small business owners like photographers, calligraphers, wedding planners, artists, and makers with online shops. The images she uses to represent that brand are bright, colorful, and peppy. She also runs a law firm, where her average client is very different than those who might utilize The Creative Law Shop. She needed new visual content for the more masculine client of her firm to relate to. With her new colors, tone, and inspiration in hand, she knew she needed a brand session for Paige Hulse Law.

I went up to Tulsa, Oklahoma where Paige lives for her shoot. We shot at a place called Spain Ranch which had the perfect masculine tones and blank canvas we needed. Kim Rico with Drops of Honey Designs was the stylist for the shoot and she put together all of the scenes we ended up shooting for Paige’s brand session. Erika Kopp with Stay Co did the wardrobe styling, with Ash Franke as hairstylist and Starla Ward as makeup artist.

Paige not only needed new headshots, she was also in need of flat lay images, filler content for social media and her website, and behind the scenes images. She invited several of her clients to partake in her brand session. I always think this is such a good idea. Interacting with clients in the photos you use for marketing is a great way to show potential clients what the process of working with you could look like. Once we shot with Paige’s clients, Kim styled flat lay designs incorporating the colors, tools, and mood that Paige’s law firm encapsulates.

I’m so happy with the way Paige’s images turned out. I love how she incorporated them into her website and how she continues to use them on social media!

Thanks for reading through the post, everyone! Have a wonderful rest of your week!

brand photos for bare: beauty + boudoir

BARE: BEAUTY + BOUDOIR

This beautiful brand session was a super refreshing challenge for me. Photographing a brand that is luxe and sultry wasn’t something that I initially imagined cohesive with my shooting style, but it ended up being a new favorite! I loved this session with Elizabeth of Bare: Beauty + Boudoir.

Y’all know how I’m all about photographers stepping in front of the camera. *makes note to practice what I preach and book a brand session for myself* A brand session in the perfect opportunity for that. Elizabeth was in need of a brand session for several reasons. Not only did she need branded headshots, but she wanted to convey to potential clients that her luxury boudoir photography collections included it all. From being pampered with hair and makeup, to wardrobe and styling options, to short videos of client sessions, to in-person proofing meetings, to final product delivery.

For Elizabeth’s brand session, it made sense to plan the day chronologically as if I were shooting behind the scenes of a normal work day for her. We started with the hair and makeup by Etoilly Artistry on Elizabeth’s lovely client Taylor. Most of her boudoir sessions begin with champagne or a drink, so we were sure to get some shots of that before heading into the behind the scenes images of the photo shoot. Elizabeth gives her clients lots of guidance in posing and techniques to make them feel more comfortable in front of the lens, so we made sure that was portrayed in her brand photos. Those kinds of images will give some insight as to why potential clients should book with her- because they will be guided through their session comfortably.

The rest of the session showed off what happens after her sessions. Clients visit her to view their images for the first time. When they choose which images they want to order, she packages up their prints, albums, or canvas orders to be shipped off. From start to finish, her shoots are a seamless and luxurious experience, and now her clients can see every step of the process before booking thanks to her brand session!
