Nashville Personal Brand Photography

for women business owners

Build your brand and take your business to the next level

Any marketing expert will tell you that engaging and cohesive imagery is key in making your brand stand out these days. It’s safe to say that if you are not using professional photos to represent your brand, then you are leaving money on the table.

A personal branding session will equip you with cohesive and consistent imagery that conveys quality, while successfully telling your story.  Imagine having an array of images at your fingertips, ready to roll the next time you click to upload a picture. Branding photos are ideal for building the “know, like and trust” factor and can be used for all of your marketing efforts. We’ll capture inviting images that tell your story and instill confidence in everyone who finds you online.

If you’re ready for on-brand photos that reflect the excellence you put into every part of your business, then it’s time for a personal branding photoshoot.

"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 L - Business Coach and COO

"Mandy's photos and business smarts will help you grow your business! I've worked with multiple photographers and done 15+ branding shoots over the past 5 years, and Mandy's was BY FAR my favorite! She actually helps you plan the images to take and strategizes about your business alongside you. The engagement (comments, likes, shares) on these new photos is huge. The images Mandy and I took together *actually* stop the scroll. And, because they are so customized to my business, I've become a better content creator because of them! I can already see the return on investment as these images help me stand out in the saturated online space.   She gives you a fully elevated experience, thinks strategically with you, and cares about your business like you do." — Elizabeth

Elizabeth McCravy - Web Designer & Podcaster

"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 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

"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

Danielle Leach - College Admissions 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."

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."

"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 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

"I feel beautiful and proud that I have something that so accurately represents me and my business."

"My photo shoot with Mandy was an awesome experience. She had done her research and I felt like she had known me for years. The props she recommended and the way she used them were incredible! She is real talent and has already increased my name recognition in the real estate industry that sets me apart from all the other Realtors in Nashville. I highly recommend her and felt like her charges were a "great deal". I highly recommend her for your rebranding needs."  — Jane

I so appreciated all the attention to detail she put into not only the shoot day but also leading up to it and helping me feel prepared and confident. I love my images and I'm so excited to use them on my social media, website and back end forms to up level my client experience and show my expertise in my industry. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I know I will be able to use these images to attract my ideal client and grow my business!" — Casey

"I know I will be able to use these images to attract my ideal client and grow my business!"

Casey Canon - Nashville Wedding Planner

"I knew I needed a branded photoshoot for my business and not just headshots, but Mandy created an entire professional image for my brand that is timeless! She didn't just provide on theme photos of myself and my products, but she envisioned photos I could use for spaces on my website and documents that I never would've considered! On the day of the shoot she did all of this fluidly. She laid out all flat lays, posed every position, and orchestrated the whole event without me having to think of a thing! This is not just a photoshoot. She took my vision and made my brand come alive! Highly recommend." — Megan

"This is not just a photoshoot. She took my vision and made my brand come alive!"

Request Pricing Guide

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, billboards, book covers, pull up banners, podcasts, 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 no 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:

08. CAN I TAKE MY OWN LIFESTYLE PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOS OF MY BUSINESS?

One of the best things about a branding photo session is that you can utilize your images on multiple outlets, in various ways, and to serve a myriad of purposes.
