Cleveland Branding Photographer: Shanna’s Headshots

Cornelius Branding and Headshot photographer

I am so excited to share Shanna’s session now as a Cleveland Branding Photographer! Working with small businesses is a passion of mine. I’m sure this is because I have my own small business myself.

I’m taking part in another blog circle with some photographer friends of mine. We’re linking to each other’s posts, so you can check out what they’re up to. This month, I’m linking to a fabulous photographer in San Diego, who’s sharing info about senior sessions!

Why do Small Businesses need photography?

Photography is so important for small businesses! You will need images for so many things. Let’s start with your website. It’s important to show your work, your small shop, your product, and also your face with the world! Next, there’s social media. As a Cleveland branding photographer I can create so much content for your social media presence. Lastly, think about business cards, flyers, advertisements, etc. Having a variety of images is really important for any business of any type.

This Branding & Headshot Session

Shanna only needed some lifestyle headshots for her branding session. They are being used on her company’s website. We decided to make them look as natural as possible so that she could look like herself but also look approachable to others. The best part of this was that Shanna got to bring her dog along to the session! That was something that really showed off who she was. Additionally, having her dog there made her automatically feel more natural and comfortable in front of the camera.

Locations for Branding Sessions

Different locations are important to consider when planning for a branding or headshot session. Depending on what your brand is all about it’s hard to say for sure where you need to be. If you have a small shop then we should definitely do your session there. Say you just need some fresh headshots, then outside in nature would be just fine. If we are showing off a product then I would want to be wherever that product would naturally be used. I will help you consider all of the options when planning for a branding session.
