Every photoshoot is different and caters to your needs and desires. Together we will create an experience that is right for you. I will be there from start to finish helping you achieve the perfect look and will even provide support after its all said and done on how to get your images to the right places so people can see the new you.
All Sessions include a consultation where we decide on some important details like location of shoot and what to wear. A custom photography session and a separate viewing session. You will also have a private online gallery to view and download your images.
Why should I care about personal branding photography?
In a world where people are seeking connection and approachability, it’s more important than ever for entrepreneurs and corporations to represent themselves authentically. People are looking to do business with real people who they can trust and relate to. Your personal brand is what they see and speaks louder than a thousands words.
I don’t know what my brand is. Can you help?
Yes of course! That is what I am here for. We will figure it out together. Through a series of questions I will assist you in discovering your authentic brand. Your brand is what sets you apart from the rest fo the world. Show your potential clients why you are so special!
How do I get started?
It all starts with an email. Once I hear from you I will send you a little questionnaire to get you started thinking about what your branding session would look like. Then we will pick a date.
How do I pay for my session?
Your initial deposit can be made right here online. You can pay the remainder to Leah Marie the day of your viewing session or arrange a payment plan. I accept all major credit cards, payment apps and cash in person.
What is your cancellation policy?
Once you schedule a shoot it is very important that you hold yourself accountable for that decision. This is your future we area talking about and I take it very serious. Deposits are non-refundable so make sure you are absolutely sure you are ready. You are allowed to reschedule once without penalty but after that there is a rescheduling fee to hold a new date. And if your feet get really cold then you can cancel all together sans deposit.
Wait did you say payment plan?
Yes I did! I understand that is can get expensive when starting a business and branding yourself. No worries, we will work together to create a plan that works for you and your budget so you can have what you need to succeed.
Do I need professional Hair and Makeup?
I highly suggest investing in a hair and makeup specialist although it is not required. Makeup for camera is different than normal every day makeup and a professional look can make you feel and look your best resulting in a polished image. I can suggest my favorite stylists or offer up other options if you do not already have one.
I don’t know what to wear. Can you help?
Yes! Together we will figure out what outfits you feel best in. It may be that blazer at the very back of your closet you forgot about or a brand new dress! Whatever it is you should wear it with confidence. I am available by text or video to help plan out your wardrobe options. Want to meet in person? Let's go shopping together! Friends don’t let friends shop alone!
Where is your studio located?
My studio is located at 1311 61st street, Emeryville, California. There is tons of free street parking but make sure you pay attention to the signs.
Do I get all the photos from my session?
No. The amount of images you want are dependent on how many you choose. In your viewing session I will help you choose your images and their purpose. Your chosen images will be retouched and sent to you in a private gallery. Having an entire gallery of unedited images is overwhelming and you really only need the BEST shots. The goal is to get these photos out into the world. Together we will make sure that each image you choose is seen! Because of this it is very important for me to make sure only the greatest images are out there representing you and inevitably me! Your final look is also my brand so I promise to make sure they are nothing less then spectacular!
