Skyla | Stylist Branding Session in Hampton, Virginia

I thoroughly love when clients look to me when they are seeking to up-level their brand. Skyla, a hair and clothing stylist, had been working on creating her brand fo a few years and really needed to polish her brand. Seeking to working with a higher end client, Skyla knew she wanted to show her clothing in a sophisticated & polished manner, but still sexy.

Components of Skyla’s branding session

After looking at Skyla’s pre-session questionnaire and the notes from our planning meeting, we decided that the best location for her session would be the Historic Post Office in Hampton, Virginia. Their light, clean backgrounds were perfect for the look that Skyla was seeking for the look of her images.

I always strive to be comprehensive when photographing for a client’s business, so we covered her styling business, personal lifestyle, business processes, and her client process/deliverables. On top of all this we covered about 10 different outfits, making for a very diverse gallery.

What Skyla had to say about working with Kia & Co:

I’d say my experience using her & her team as a photographer has been great! I just ❤️ Love the level of professionalism AND expertise. By far my favorite experience with a photographer, yet!
