In the days of cameras in pockets, it can be hard to understand why personal branding photography sessions are needed. Whether you have a team of employees or you’re a one-woman show, having solid, professional branding images can help you convey a solid, professional business.
Personal Branding images are great for people who have an online presence, like a personal blog or an online business, plus they’re great for social media content and even for a beautiful online dating profile. 😉
What is Personal Branding Photography?
A Personal Branding photography session is more elevated than a traditional headshot. It allows you to be creative and showcase everything your brand is about. These images, which can be of you, your team, your business location, your products or services and more, help attract your ideal client. They are usually a cohesive bundle of photos that can be used on your website or blog, on social media and even in marketing materials.
Your clients will see the difference between high-quality content that reflects WHO you are and WHAT you are all about versus stock photography.
How do you prepare for a personal branding photography session?
If you sign up for a personal branding photography session with Wild Peach Photography, you’ll receive a questionnaire so I can get to know you and your business. We’ll set up a time to meet to find out your goals with a personal branding photography session and how I can help. In the meantime, you can have a look online for inspiration. Are there photos that you love or ideas you want to try out? I’m game.
Once the date is booked, you can prepare for a shoot by thinking about how you want to attract your ideal client. What would they want to see? How do you want them to feel? Then on the date of our session, we’ll work our magic.
What type of images would I get in a personal branding session?
That’s all up to you! Every personal brand is different, so the type of photos needed may also be different. Generally, most personal branding photography sessions will include:
- Lifestyle headshots
- Your workspace or business location
- You or your team hard at work
- Any products you sell
- Images to convey the service you sell
- Fun, personable lifestyle shots

Sunrise Personal Brand Photography Session on Georgian Bay
Although I’m a morning person, I don’t often wake up at 4 am. But, after a rainy few days, I knew that this perfectly clear day would be my one chance to get some amazing sunrise images on Georgian Bay. Being in front of the camera AND behind the camera can be tricky, but I was able to do a mini personal brand session of myself!
I want to portray my professional, yet easy-going personality in a location that is near and dear to my heart, the rocky coast of Georgian Bay. That beautiful golden hour doesn’t last long, so I prepped beforehand with posing ideas and a list of “must-have” shots.
I think they turned out pretty darn well, what do you think?
