In our digital world of constant connection, imagery has never been more essential. I know from personal experience that when you use social media as a huge part of your business, every photo you post of yourself—even your tiny thumbnail picture next to your handle name on Instagram!—tells your clients and your community the story of you. Your personal imagery is your first impression, and you have to make it count.
That’s why I’m thrilled to offer personal branding sessions for anyone from small business owners to people who want to update their LinkedIn profile for a job search. The goal with branding sessions is to show off your best asset: you! We’ll discuss what you and your brand stand for, and collaborate on imagery that can broadcast that to the world.
Ali recently launched her blog, Healthy Thank You More Please, and quickly realized the need for branding photos. She’s “here to give you simple, actionable, realistic ways to improve your health so you have more time to chase big goals, cultivate confidence, and find your voice.” Ali is a native Vermonter who also happens to be one of my 2020 brides. I’ve so enjoyed getting to know Ali over the past year or so and her branding session allowed me to dig deeper into the vision she has for her blog. I’m so excited to follow along and see what great ideas she has to offer people like me who barely work out and aimlessly wander through the grocery aisle with no real plan!

Mary is located on the South Shore of Boston, and we met while both attending a photography workshop in New Haven, CT. She owns and operates Mary Polleys Photography and specializes in wedding, pet, and boudoir photography. Mary values her “ability to capture the love between a couple, a groom and his mom, the moment a dad sees his daughter in her wedding dress – it’s not only an honor to be a part of, but it’s also an incredible experience that makes my heart flutter every time.”
