Branding Session with Lustre Theory in Norfolk, VA

Using props in your branding session

Just like a location, props do a great job at adding context to your session and tell a story about what you do and all the tools you use along the way. Here a few ideas of props that you can include in your session:

Work Tools

What tools do you include in your everyday work life? Bring them to your session so that we can capture you working with them. These kind of shots provide you with those wonderful behind the scenes images that your audience loves! Show them how much love and care you put into your craft.

Your Products

What better way to show off your products? Your audience wants to see you with your products so they can put a face with a name and brand.

Work Must-Haves

Yes, these are the “typical branding shots” with your cell phone, planner, and computer

Other People

Many times, your service can’t quite be communicated when you’re taking pictures by yourself…after all, you’re a service based business owner. Asking a few friends to be a part of your shoot can put your service into context. Many times, friends are more than willing to help!

Things you Love

Are there products that are a part of your everyday life that you love and enjoy? For me, that’s some dry shampoo…lol!! Let’s include some of those personal items in your session too!
