  1. Headshots & Team Photos

    • This may seem like a “no brainer” but having a professional headshot is a priority! If you have a team, then be sure to take their individual headshots too. Followed by a team photo!
    • People want to invest in a brand that they trust. The first step to building trust with your potential clients is by showing the face behind the brand. They need to put a face to your business!
    • Pro Tip: Wear colors that coincide with your brand colors! If you’ve had your branding done by a professional designer—you know what we’re talking about! They are those 3-4 colors that characterize your brand and target your ideal client for your industry.
  2. In-Action Shots

    • Everyone loves to see behind the scenes! Pull back the curtain and share your process with your viewers. For example, if you are a photographer, get some photos of you taking pictures; if you are a florist, some shots of you as you put together a bouquet would be great!
    • Extra Brownie Points: Create a brand film of you at work! Ask your photographer if they offer this as an add on service or hire a videographer. These can be used on social media (hello IG Reels and IGTV!) or on your website for some added flair!
  3. Flatlays

    • Gather your favorite resources, tools used for your business, and any other materials you’d like to share or would be typically found in your workspace. Place them in an aesthetic fashion on a solid background to showcase them!
    • These styled images are great for showing off your products or as filler content for when you’re posting on social media! There are SO many uses for flatlay photos.
    • Pro Tip: Incorporate your hands! If you are a planner or writer, you could take a photo of you jotting down notes from above for perspective. By incorporating your hands, you are embedding the concept that your brand is personal. There’s a human touch that makes that image so much more relatable.
