FAQ’s

Finding the right photographer and investing in great images can be a little overwhelming. You want someone who “gets” you and your business, who is professional, creative and makes the process easy and fun.  Working with small businesses is my jam! I love the process of starting and marketing a business and watching it grow. Here are a few questions I hear quite frequently to get you started:

WHY SHOULD I USE A CUSTOM PHOTOGRAPHER?

Professional quality images give your business instant credibility and trust. There are a few options when it comes to images for your marketing, Stock images, custom photography, and the single headshot. Stock photography definitely has its place. There are several free websites with quality stock images – and you should definitely look into those. The downside to stock photography is that it can look generic.  And, you can be sure that someone else has that exact image in their marketing as well.

The single image headshot is ok for those who maybe work for another company that does all of their own marketing.  It just isn’t enough these days to keep your Facebook, Instagram, Website and Blog looking fresh and new.

When marketing a personal brand, communicating your story and and what makes you unique is essential to help you stand out from the crowd. A professional photographer will be able to translate your story into compelling images and video.

My clients come to me because they understand that authenticity is what creates raving fans. You want to set your business above the rest of the competition. And, you want your clients to connect with your business in a real way.  Images and video that tell a story – working with a real client, solving a real problem, or introducing your company’s culture and employees in an authentic way are much more compelling and memorable.
