For her personal brand session, we incorporated her love for plants and floral elements and her beloved brand “mascot”, her dog, Yoda, into her brand photography session. Heather is a bright and quirky person so her photos needed to reflect that. We wanted her session to be creative and personal and to show her heart for animals, her love for the environment, and how these things influence her beauty standards and approach to her services.

The main goal for this Austin Branding Photo Session was to attract a high-end market that trusted Robin with the creative control and direction of their design project while getting the sense that she was artistic and fun. This drove several of our creative and stylistic decisions… we wanted to establish credibility and also create a sense of whimsy.
With the “Human-First” approach, Megan reminds us to prioritize our humanity while running a business, in essence putting our mental health and well-being at the forefront so that we can then in turn be overall better business owners and contributors to the world (including our own, obviously).
This drove the inspiration behind our Austin brand photo session which Megan came all the way from Minnesota for!
That’s why there’s a mix of bed-shots, desk shots, some dirty laundry, and lots of socks, as well as headshots and content photos, of course.
Aparna is a local Austin artist who primarily works with oil paints and graphite. For your Brand Photo Session, we create a visual story that encapsulates who you are and what you do. Here you get a sense of who Aparna is as an artist— what kind of work she creates, what inspires her. We get a glimpse into her studio space, her work tools, the way she approaches and creates her artwork, even how she moves.
Your photos often set the first impression you make on your audience. They are a main point of connection and if they’re done well, they help you build trust and establish credibility in your field and your little corner of the internet.
Recently, a client expressed to me her disappointment when I didn’t do more retouching to her photo than I had. But the things she wanted to change gave me pause.

Let me tell you why I ultimately chose Dubsado and why I haven’t regretted it for one single day. I only wish I had done it sooner.
I knew a CRM was going to be a financial investment but also would require a lot of time upfront so I wanted something that did it all.
