Personal Branding and Business Photography
It's never been more important to have professional images of yourself. The first impression you make on potential employers or customers comes from your profile photo.
Be sure it's the very best version of you. Don't let it appear unprofessional.
A headshot is a head-and shoulders image against a studio backdrop of your choice. It's made for your profile photo spots or your company's website directory.
This session lasts under a half hour, so may be the perfect choice for those time-constrained people who need only that head-and shoulders shot without the need for more in-depth branding photos. Pricing can be found here.
I've photographed Chicago area authors, CEO’s, attorneys, bankers, realtors, ministers, actors, technology professionals, doctors, business owners..and more. You'll find my name in Verge Magazine's TOP 18 Headshot Photographers.
STUDIO PERSONAL BRANDING PORTRAIT
A portrait includes more variety in posing, including full and half body images, and we'll use a variety of props such as different seating.
This session allows much more time to change clothes, as well as to relax enough to be yourself on camera! You can add an second background for even more variety.
You'll get images that look different and can be used in more ways. It's a great way to show more personality and build a personal brand when done strategically.
You'll get a consultation, including advice and resources to prepare for the best outcome.
You'll actually have fun and change your mind about how you look in photos!

LOCATION PERSONAL BRANDING PORTRAIT
This session is like the studio portrait, but adds the element of YOUR environment.
I travel to your designated location and capture you in your preferred location. It could be an office, your shop, a rented Peerspace location, etc. Maybe it makes sense to photograph you outdoors.
During our consultation, we figure that out. I can offer ideas that you may not have thought of once I get to know you and your brand.
The images in this session have a lifestyle feel, because of the sense of a place,
Like the studio portrait, this session allows much more time to change clothes, and add variety in the location.
Pricing can be found here.
STORY BRAND SESSIONS
When you need to build trust in your audience, you need to allow them a peek into your world.
A Story Brand Session--or series of them--is exactly what you're looking for.
it's about you, but each shoot is based on one of your "stories" (we all have many of them). It may include people, places, and things to support that story. Think of it as lifestyle photography with intention.
Your stories build trust, and ultimately help you make more money in your business.
Imagine you have a folder filled with curated images that are perfect for your needs, at your fingertips for when you're writing that blog article or submitting that photo for a press release.
And the best part is that you didn't have to take them. You've outsourced that job to me, so you can spend more time doing more important things to grow your business.

Not only did Deb take fantastic images of me, she also helped me to create a clear vision of what I needed. The end result is a portfolio of many images I am sure I will use for several years to come I submitted two photos Deb shot to accompany an article I wrote for publication and the publisher was so impressed with Deb's images, she put one on the cover of the magazine. --J Pate (yoga business)
