It all began with a phone call and a need for an updated graphic design portfolio. After a little chatting I found out Mary actually had a bigger vision: she wanted updated headshots, website images, pictures for social media, and more. AND she wanted those pictures to show off who she is and what she does.
She opted for a brand refresh – updated pictures that place her at the forefront of her brand (Hello – personal branding photos to the rescue) and help potential clients get to know her and the high-end graphic design service she provides.
Mary wanted modern, consistent imagery that translated as “smart, friendly, confident and trustworthy” to her clients. That’s definitely the result! I’m in love with how Mary’s photoshoot turned out. We had an amazing team and a perfect location to help her cultivate the personal brand Mary is after.

Mary’s Mood Board
Client mood boards get the ball rolling! Before her pre-consult Mary received the mood board on the left centered around her brand. Mood boards are a fun way to see the vision come to life and to put a visual representation of the brand. On the right is Mary’s final mood board using images from her personal branding session.
