Frequently Asked Questions

Huntsville BRAND sessions

1. What is the difference between a brand session and a headshot session?
 

1. What is the difference between a brand session and a headshot session?
 

During a headshot session I concentrate on your face, resulting in images that clearly show what you look like, while brand photography is more strategic & focuses on capturing images that reflect and promote a brand's identity, values, client experience, as well as your product/service. For more information on what each type of session includes, take a look at my Headshot Photography & Brand Photography packages. 

2. Why is brand photography important for my business?
 

2. WHY IS BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY IMPORTANT FOR MY BUSINESS?
  

I believe high quality brand photography is so important because it’s usually one of the first ways that a client will interact with your business–whether they see your social media, website, or print marketing first–the thing that will most likely get their attention will be the images. During this first impression, you want to make one that represents the value and quality that you bring–setting you up to be an industry expert. I work very closely with many other marketing professionals and they say that their job, whether it be copywriting, graphic design, digital ads, just isn’t effective without high quality images.

4. I have a team, can I incorporate them into my brand session?
 

I have a team, can I incorporate them into my brand session?
  

Yes, of course you can incorporate your team! During your session we can make sure to capture your team collaborating as well as get headshots & group shots of your team together. Depending on how many individuals are on your team, a half day or full day session will be recommended. 

5. What will you be concentrating on during my brand session?
 

What will you be concentrating on during my brand session?
  

I'll mainly be concentrating on YOU and your business!! I want to capture you in your element and you as a person. During your planning session, we will discuss your goals for the next 3-6 months and your client experience. From there we will develop a shoot plan that includes a shot list that will act as our game plan for our brand session together. 

6. What do you recommend we do to get the most out of our brand session?
 

6. What do you recommend we do to get the most out of our brand session?
  

One of the best ways that you can get the most out of your brand session is to plan, a good plan ensures that you (and your team) and I are prepared going into your session so that we’re working as efficiently as possible and we get all the shots that you need. 

My goal with every session is to get you a very diverse gallery, the best way to do this is:
  • Bring as many props as you can that represent the work that you do, how you interact with your clients, & represent you and your lifestyle. This will ensure that we have a lot to do during your session
  • Change your clothing & hair so that you look different throughout your gallery
  • Pick a location that has a lot of different “looks” in a small area

7. Can I provide input on the creative direction of the photoshoot?
 

7. CAN I PROVIDE INPUT ON THE CREATIVE DIRECTION OF THE PHOTOSHOOT?
  

   Absolutely! A few weeks prior to your brand session we schedule a virtual planning session. This is where we plan the activities that you’ll do, the clothing you’re planning to wear, ideas for a location, and all the details behind your photoshoot. This is YOUR session and I’m here to help you capture your vision. 

8. I’m trying to get outfits together for my branding session, what do you recommend? Where do I start?
 

8.I’m trying to get outfits together for my branding session, what do you recommend? Where do I start?
  

Ahh yes, this is definitely something that we chat about in your session planning meeting, but this blog on Clothing for your Branding Session is a great place to start. My biggest tip is to find outfits that you're confident and comfortable in! Clothing is something that we use to add a lot of diversity into your gallery, we want you to look like you have this amazing photographer following you around…not like we captured it in one day. Think about the different hats that you wear as a business owner and ask yourself what you would be wearing in those instances while you’re building your wardrobe for your session. Depending on the length of your session, I recommend you put together about 10 outfits. 

9. Should I bring anything with me?
 

9. Should I bring anything with me?

10. What kind of location do you recommend?

 

10. WHAT KIND OF LOCATION DO YOU RECOMMEND?
 

One that best suits your needs, shows off your brand, is authentic to the way your clients interact with you, gives context to your service or product.

13. I CAN’T WAIT…WHEN WILL I GET TO SEE MY IMAGES FOR THE FIRST TIME?
   

This is the best part! Two weeks after your session we will meet (virtual meetings available) and this is when you will see your full proofing gallery for the first time, this will include about 100 images (could be more if you booked a longer session). I will help you through the process of selecting your favorite images, choose those that were included in your session fee, and (if you wish) place an order for your additional images. If you wish to forgo a post-session meeting, I will send over a proofing gallery. 
As soon as you select your images, I’ll do my final edits & get you a final download gallery within 2 business days.

I have worked with Gari-Ann for almost 2 years. She’s incredibly talented. I originally looked at her because I needed some proper headshots and a better way to display my brand visually. I was so impressed. She isn’t just a photographer. She is able to view the photos she takes through the lens of your entire brand!! She thinks about how it will work with your social, website, media and more.
