Personal Branding Process

Do you hate having your picture taken?

The world has high expectations. You work hard every day to fulfill your obligations with work, family, and friends, and really, you’re doing a great job! But the all-knowing internet is watching you, and if your pictures don’t tell the same story, there’s a missed opportunity. Getting your personal brand in order doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

Most people hate photos of themselves because they know for sure that they look better in 3D, moving through space and time. The problem is not you or the way you look. The problem is, the camera doesn’t know your best angle and it can’t tell if the light is flattering. Only your photographer knows that.

That means it’s not your job to be photogenic! In fact, that’s not even a thing. In reality, it’s your photographer who finds the angles and the lighting to make you look your best. Choosing the right tools, setting up great angles, and using optimal timing is what it takes to get great personal branding photos.

That’s why Lara Grauer Photography has developed a signature process for custom personal branding photoshoots – so you can move through the process with ease and confidence.

Here’s how it works: First, you’ll have a comprehensive planning consultation with the photographer. You’ll discuss your branding and marketing needs, determine a shot list, select the best location(s) for your photos, and go over optimal wardrobe selections. Next, you’ll have your fun and fearless photoshoot, where you’ll have the option of professional hair & makeup styling, one or more locations, multiple outfit changes, and possibly even a catered lunch included. Then, your photos will be selected, retouched, formatted to your needs, and delivered within 1-2 weeks.

Planning Consultation

Go over your marketing and branding goals, clarify your messaging so Seattle Photographer Lara Grauer can get the right look, choose your session location(s), select your outfits, and plan your shot list so you know exactly how to prepare for your personal branding photoshoot.

Brand Photoshoot

Your shoot may take place in our north Seattle photography studio, or at a location that is appropriate for your branding message. Multiple looks are important for personal branding photography sessions, so Lara will guide you through posing and setting up a variety of concepts.

Image Delivery

Choose to select individual photos together with the photographer or receive an “Artist’s Choice” bundle of images. All selected photos will be professionally retouched, sized to your needs, and delivered digitally within 1-2 weeks.
