When Branding meets Styled Shoots

I was recently contacted by an incredibly intelligent and funny lady who wanted to have updated pictures for three specific and unique purposes. After chatting over coffee, we developed a plan and set up not one, but two sessions for me to meet all of her needs.

It was so. much. fun.

I love what I do. Most days, I have a blast capturing special moments for families. That being said, one on one sessions allow me to get to know a single client and really tailor a session to that client’s personality and style. Both sessions were fabulous and as I get ready to deliver this album, I know that Miss M. is thrilled. The colors, locations and joy in her pictures are evident.

This is why I love to #CreateMAJECK!

Branding and Styled sessions allow clients to have the opportunity for outfit changes, different styles. It is an excellent way to establush your brand on Social Media, your website and print marketing. A picture is worth a thousand words and with my pricing – we can work out a plan that is within any professional’s budget.


What is Branding Photography?

I have been asked by some of my business owners that I consult with and Lifestyle Photography clients what Branding Photography is. Many haven’t heard of it, even though they are probably following someone on Social Media who is utilizing a Branding Photographer. So, here’s a quick run down on what it is MAJECK can bring to the table in the area of Personal and Business Branding.

Are you a Social Media Influencer? Perhaps you are running a political campaign – or you need steady images to build your business or a brand. Your job should be talking to people, involving yourself in networking opportunities and building your Brand Image. You need quality images, but can’t take the time out of every single day to create them yourself.

That’s where MAJECK comes in.

I get it. I really do. I have been working with Brands for over a year on improving their image quality and personal branding. There are two different services I offer to clients for their Branding.

The first is to offer my services hourly and photograph the client at events so that they have quality images to use on Social Media, in Email Blasts and their website. The second is that we create stories over several hours to match your brand and photograph them. These stories are completely based on who you are, what your business is and who the client you are hoping to reach is.

A current client utilizing my event Branding. – This means that he doesn’t need to remember to snap pictures with a cell phone and the pictures are more valuable because he was in them.

What does that mean?

For instance, a pet groomer may hire me to take Personal Brand Images for their business – Mobile Pet Grooming. Over their period of time, I would create a story with their own pet and them playing at a dog park, enjoying a sunny afternoon. This invokes a sense of trust in that this business owner has pets and loves them outside of their monetary value. It invests her clients to her. Then, the second part of our session would be the business owner in around her mobile grooming vehicle. Behind the wheel, what the vehicle looks like (close ups of the pet treats), her meeting a pet owner at their home or office and finally her grooming a pet and the finished results. This allows her clients to become familiar with the process that she employs and lets them feel more at ease.

Pictures tell a story. Anyone using Social Media should be leveraging these stories to improve their bottom line. I’m here to help do that.
