Business & Personal Branding Portraits

Do you own a business, or do any kind of networking? Have you ever had to market yourself to a potential employer or client? Then you know how important it is to make a good first impression!  Your business or personal branding portrait is often your first chance to make that impression. Do you really want that impression to be from an cell phone selfie?  Make it a great one with a professional portrait.

I have created two different session options, depending on your needs. To help you choose the session that's right for you think about what you'll be using your portraits for.  Are you mainly interested in profile portraits for social media like Linkedin and Facebook?  Would you like more than one portrait so you can change it over the year, or use different ones on different social media sites? Do you need portraits for your business or corporate website? What about portraits for printed marketing materials? Some of my clients even like to have images for personal use and gifts as well.  You will also want to think about what kind of impression you want to make. Do you want to look business-like and formal?  Do you want to look casual and relaxed? Do you want a soft, approachable feel to your portraits. Or are you a creative who would like to look unique? Or would you like to try several looks so you have a variety of options for a variety of uses?  The choice is yours.   

Business & Personal Branding Session $150 which includes:

To create your portraits we will start with a In-Person Planning Appointment.  This session includes 3-4 different looks so will talk about the style of portraits you would like, and discuss your wardrobe and background choices. This session also includes Professional Hair Styling and Makeup, so we will talk about that as well. Your planning session is a great way for us to get to know each other and will help you feel more relaxed and comfortable on the day of your photo shoot.

The day of your Photography Shoot starts with your hair and makeup appointment followed by the photo shoot itself.  Plan to spend at least 5  hours with me! I'll do my best to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and will be guiding you through the entire photo shoot so you don't have to worry about what to do.  I will direct you through a variety of poses that are designed to make you look your very best!  You will have at least three different wardrobe and background changes during your session.

This session does not include any prints or digital images. They are purchased separately, so about two weeks after your session we will meet for your In-Person Portrait Reveal and Ordering Appointment.  This is when I will show you the very best pictures from your session so you can choose the images you need, and any other items you may want.  You can get an idea of what's available here.   My goal for your session is to create 20 or more unique images so that you can have a wide selection of images and looks to choose from.  With every portrait you purchase you also get the matching digital image, so you can use your portraits on social media, on your website, or for other business uses.

I recommend this session for anyone who needs multiple images and would like a variety of looks to choose from. 

Business Portrait Mini-Session $575

My business portrait mini-session includes a Telephone Consultation where we will discuss the goals you have for your session and clothing selection. This session DOES NOT include hair styling or makeup.

A fully guided Photography Shoot with up to 1 hour of in-studio photography time. This session includes one background and one outfit.

An Online Gallery for you to view a selection of 10 or more fully retouched images.  This session includes 3 digital images which you can choose and download directly from your online gallery. Additional images are available to purchase for $175 each.

I recommend this session for anyone who only needs a couple of images in one outfit.



"Excellent work. Perfect for people who hate having their picture taken or are not photogenic."


"Thank you so much Lorraine for the fabulous business portraits! I'm a music teacher and so I wanted something professional, yet approachable since I work mostly with children. That's exactly what I got and I couldn't be more happy!"
