Nashville Brand & Marketing strategist, visual storyteller, & cHEERLEADER

I partner with small business owners that need consistent imagery that can capture the caliber of services they offer their clients. As a Nashville brand photographer, I translate their heart into high-quality images, equipping them with the tools and confidence to share their vision with the world.
  
I can't even begin to explain the joy it brings me to come alongside fellow girl bosses. Time and time again my clients tell me that they received more than just great content for their business- but they left the session with a renewed fire to take on the world. 

My job title may be “brand photographer,” but my heart's position is cheerleader, encourager, and difference maker… I want to play a part in changing the story about women in business. Because when we support each other, incredible things happen!


I believe your branding images should be a reflection of your passions and moxie. It’s not just another headshot. I want the world to see you the way I do; confident, radiant and full of fire.

"I can not say thank you enough for these wonderful images. You have a gift, not just the gift to take beautiful photos. You have the gift of SEEING people, and empowering them to BE SEEN. These images have allowed me to see what the people who believe in me see. I knew these photos would be an investment. I didn't know that they would be a gift of confidence, moxie and empowerment. Stepping out and being seen feels a little less scary now. " — Danielle

"Mandy is by far the best photographer I’ve ever hired. Not only does she understand my overall brand strategy for my business, but she helps me create and capture photos that attract my target audience through social media. Mandy actually cares that I get it right! It’s refreshing! Mandy makes me feel comfortable and confident during the shoot. I always end up with great photos that I’m proud to utilize." 
— Amanda

Amanda Lairsey - Business Coach and COO

"This was my first branding shoot, and I wasn't sure how to plan for it. Mandy spent time learning about my business, gave me suggestions on what to wear, props to bring, etc., and educated me on how to represent myself as a girl boss. Her easygoing personality helped me to relax and be myself. The gallery was ready sooner than I expected, and now I have dozens of great quality photos to use on my website and social spaces. Definitely recommend!" — Dana

"Her easygoing personality helped me to relax and be myself."

Dana Maize - Florist

"I recently worked with Mandy for a branding session for my business. I came in with a particular vision and Mandy surpassed my own plan for myself. She is detailed, thorough, and incredibly patient and flexible to work with. The pictures turned out perfect and I can't wait to use them on my site and social media pages." — Danielle

Danielle Leach - College Admissions Coach

"Mandy was fantastic to work with!!! She did her homework before the shoot to help ensure that my Branding Session met the needs of my web design team and represented my brand visually. She put me at ease from the moment I got to the location and the time just flew by, we had so much fun! And the pictures came out beautifully! I will definitely be recommending her to all of my clients." 
— Teresa

"She did her homework before the shoot."

Teresa White - Business Coach

"Mandy came and did a branding session for my recent art series and she was so fun and relaxed to work with! I'm usually super awkward and stiff in photos, but she really captured the "me" that people don't usually get to see behind my plain posed smile. Plus, she even came out in the mud and rain to a llama farm with me! The photos are so beautiful and better than I could have hoped for. I could not recommend her more!"  — Kristin

"The photos are so beautiful and better than I could have hoped for."

Kristin Llamas - Artist

"I highly recommend working with Mandy for your photography needs. I recently hired her for a business branding photo shoot and could not be more pleased with the results. The shoot was very fun, I always felt very comfortable and I loved her ideas. She got the photos back to me and I am so excited with how they turned out! There is seriously not one bad photo and she got them back to me to view so quickly. I highly recommend Mandy and will be hiring her again for future projects!" —  Elle

"The shoot was very fun, I always felt very comfortable and I loved her ideas."

Elle McCann - Web Designer

"I've never invested in more than a head shot to represent myself and my business so I was nervous. Mandy had a great way of preparing me for the shoot! She helped me choose two dresses and props in advance of the photo shoot. I felt very ready and remarkably relaxed when the day of the photo shoot came. I couldn't be more pleased with the images and it's wonderful to have more than just one or two head shots to use on print and social media marketing!" — Tiffany

"I felt very ready and remarkably relaxed when the day of the photo shoot came."

Tiffany White - Realtor

"I don't even know what to say... I am over the moon with how these photos turned out. They are not only exactly what I was hoping for but they are so much more. I have been waiting for what seems like years to invest in a branding session and I always came up with an excuse. I can't tell you how happy I am that I found you and that I now have the photos that I have been looking for. I feel beautiful and proud that I have something that so accurately represents me and my business."  — Shannon

A branding photoshoot is for businesses and entrepreneurs that want to grow their online presence and improve their personal marketing efforts. These sessions equip you with cohesive and consistent imagery that attract your ideal client and help you stand out in a saturated market! Working with a personal branding photographer is a great way to visually tell your brand story and show what makes you unique.

01. What Is personal branding photography?

Once you have an understanding of your brand, messaging and target audience, you should invest in a branding session! A brand photoshoot will equip you with pictures for your website, digital marketing and more. A lot of my Nashville branding clients are female entrepreneurs that have been in business for a couple of years and are finally ready to take the next step to enhance their brand through photography. 

02. WHEN SHOULD I PLAN A PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOSHOOT?

We will customize your session to fit your brand and business! I will walk you through the planning process and guide you on props and outfits. As a Nashville personal branding photographer I will send you a questionnaire to fill out about your business and specific photo needs! This helps me craft a session that perfectly fits your business! If you want to see how I plan my own branding sessions, click here!

03. HOW DO I PLAN A BRAND PHOTOSHOOT?

Pictures from your commercial business photoshoot can be used anywhere to grow your business and increase engagement! Your website, social media profiles, blog posts, email marketing campaigns and print marketing materials are great places to start! My Nashville clients have also used their branding photos for car wraps, book covers, pull up banners, direct mail marketing and Facebook ads. 

04. WHERE CAN I USE MY BRAND AND MARKETING PHOTOS?

For a lot of ladies, choosing the outfits for brand photos is the hardest part! I totally get it and that's why I send you a style guide to walk you through the decisions! Personally, I love seeing women coordinate their outfits with their brand colors. When you wear your brand, it can help create brand recognition across your online platforms and result in a cohesive look on your website and marketing collateral.

05. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO my personal BRAND PHOTOSHOOT?

Imagine spending 2-3 hours with me, some well-chosen props, and the perfect location, and leaving with content for dozens of Instagram posts. As a Nashville personal branding photographer I help women batch-create their social media content. Posting consistently and strategically helps you get more engagement on social media and generates more organic leads for your business. 

06. HOW CAN BRANDING PHOTOS HELP ME CREATE CONTENT FOR INSTAGRAM?

They're the same thing! Your personal branding session includes a commercial release so you can use your brand photos for any advertising, marketing and promotions with further payment or credit due. Hire a Nashville personal branding photographer so you receive a commercial license/release to use your pictures. Someone that isn’t familiar with branding or commercial photography may restrict your use and ability to alter your images (which is sometimes necessary when creating ads and social posts).

07. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND BRANDING?

While working with a professional personal branding photographer will save you time and ensure you strategically plan a successful shoot, you can totally DIY your brand photos if you're not ready yet! Here are some of my best resources to help you with that:
