Personal Branding for a western North Carolina Powerhouse

Emily Breedlove is not your everyday entrepreneur. In fact, she is more engaged in the entrepreneurial community of western NC than any 4 people could hope to be. She’s what you call “plugged in”. Cat Ford-Coates created her new personal branding campaign at Studio 828 Photography.

Alexandra’s smile just won’t quit. I LOVE that about her. We had so much fun during her shoot. One of the greatest things about our story together is that I spoke with her earlier in the fall and she decided that it wasn’t the right time for a personal branding session. Alexandra is a realtor with Keller Williams and placing herself in the luxury market here in western North Carolina but was concerned going into the winter here, that it might be better to wait until the Spring.

Well, about a month later, a gentleman calls me and he is researching photographers for his wife. Her real estate business is taking off like wildfires in California (sorry Cali, no offense) and she needs new branding images. She’s been using the same head shot for about 10 years and, like all savvy entrepreneurs isn’t looking for the “same ole head shot”. He was drawn to my work because of our message in connection and empowerment, as well as our imagery. It is anything but run of the mill.

Oh, and did I mention that he went on, gushing about his wonderful wife for a good twenty minutes, telling me how much he adores her? Yeah. After about ten minutes it dawned on me that I had already spoken with his wife and kablammo! I was even more thrilled to be photographing her! She must really be pretty incredible if her husband has gone on in his admiration to a complete stranger. Yes, she is. In fact, if you’re in the market for real estate here in Asheville, I highly recommend her. We talked shop a bit and, she knows her business inside and out.

This was her family’s FAVORITE image from our session. I must admit, it’s one of my favorites too.

Did I mention that one of the things we are offering our branding clients is more than a string of head shots. We are also using the images they love the most, and incorporating them into seasonal Facebook cover photos for their businesses. Remember, the point of your branding session is to ensure that you have cohesive imagery for your marketing efforts throughout the year. Social media is, like it or not, a HUGE component for your revenue. Nurture it. Care for it. Leverage it for your own business.

Personal Branding for the Inspired Professional

Personal branding for the inspired professional.

Meet, Maggie Marie.

She was an absolute joy to photograph! As a small business owner, she is rebranding her copywriting business and was interested in showcasing her own persona as the face of her business. As many of you know, your first impression is not made on the consultation or the work, or even in the delight of your current client base (though, that absolutely helps!).

Your first impression is made when your potential client somehow connects with you, with your image, with your brand. In a single image your readership will judge whether you’re professional, delightful, quirky, lazy, friendly, ambitious, and yes, authentic. What does your current head shot or branding profile say about you?

I loved every second of working with Maggie. Her work is inspiring, her words are crafted and her spirit is limitless.

Thank you Maggie.
