Let me tell you a little colour realization…
Whoever the heck told me that blue on blue does /not/ go WAS WRONG.
My whole life thinking that I couldn’t put blue on blue together because it just doesn’t go??
Before I show you the end result, a little background:
Jess whipped me up an Instagram DM one day (#moderndayinquiries) including the words:
“…I have like one nice pic of myself and need to up my game 😂”
She was in the midst of updating her entire website and was looking to elevate her brand images to match it all together! What I love most about Brand Portraits is that when you invest into yourself + your business, it has 3 instant benefits:
- You are active with fresh content OF YOU
– Your audience will see something new and be able to connect to who YOU are!
- Shows growth + clarity in brand
– You evolve as your business evolves, so updating your images shows that instantly
- Elevates your overall image as a professional
– Prospective clients will most always choose based off good experience but also based off trust on IMAGE.
You’re a professional, so should be your own portraits~ Read more on The Importance of Brand Photography.
I send all my Personal Brand clients a questionnaire so I am 100% clear on who they are as a person and brand. This is how each shoot is so different from each other and personalized! Jess added this at the end of our questionnaire which got the ideas brewing:
I had just finished up a photoshoot with Chadi Mansi where we used a full-colour dark green backdrop, and was hoping to experiment again… SO THE CHANCE AROSE!
The magic starts with an idea and it comes to life with energy!! I couldn’t wait to see how we could make a colour co-ordinated scene together. Did I mention we even got a Makeup Artist involved? The possibilities are endless (and I HELP you, I’ll get it organized for ya)
This was the moodboard I created to pump us up and stay true to vision:
Yeah. And we did it. Now I’m going to SHOW you what happens with some good planning + just being YOU~ Look at these portraits…
