Christine Rizzo and I first met at a party years ago, where we both worked for an MLB player: she sang with her band, and I photographed the event. Now, five years later, she's hiring me to capture her branding headshots for her new business.

As a small business owner, your time is valuable. That's why it's important to show up prepared for any branding photoshoot you do to make sure you maximize your session.

I've created efficient sessions designed specifically for the working professional who needs a few starter images for their website or online branding.

Photos like:

  • A new headshot

  • Updated profile photo

  • 2 or 3 relaxed or more natural images

  • Photos for your About Me or Bio page

  • Website banners

Two ways you can use your personal branding images on your website.

How To Create Personal Branding Portraits in 30 mins

In order to create a variety of looks quickly, it's important you come prepared to do different things.

You can't just stand in one spot, stare at the camera, smile for every photo and expect to have a gallery of amazing images.

  • Look at the camera, then over to your left, then right, or across the room.

  • Don't focus on doing poses. Make small adjustments or movements with your body.

  • Tilt your head. Shift you hips. Create angles.

This creates a more candid and natural feel in your final products.

PRO TIP: Bring a coat or blazer to change up your look.
