Erica | Instant Teams Executive Brand & Headshot Session

As the COO of Instant Teams, Erica wanted to highlight all the reasons working remotely rocks! She leads her company from the cozy corner of her home and wanted her audience to see that you can be professional and still work in comfort in a barcalounger.

Instant Teams

Instant Teams connects highly-skilled military-connected talent to businesses that are looking for remote teams. They serve a unique demographic of professionals from across the military-connected community whose lifestyles demand innovation, communication, and flexibility. Instant Teams puts together teams of highly skilled and trained US citizens that are located globally and available to work in every time zone.

Goals for Erica’s Branding Session

Not only did Erica want to capture herself working in her home, but she wanted to make sure to capture her brand and personal sense of style. She describes Instant Teams as modern but sophisticated, techie but approachable. Personally Erica has an inner vibe of retro/classic styling that she loves and was not afraid of bold colors…that’s perfect, because those bright colors looked amazing in her images! As the leader of her company, it was important for Erica to have professional images that represented her as a professional, leading the way for the company.
