Helping small businesses with their marketing endeavors is one of my favorite things to do. I love to create content that helps business owners show people what it might be like to work with the company or the individual. Good branding photography is essential for a nice website, and to promote yourself as a serious and thoughtful business owner. I think most people are visual, and as a consumer, getting to see behind the scenes photos of a business owners process at work, helps people visualize what their experience might be like. For this shoot I met up with the lovely Val Swan who runs a business to help people stay accountable, to provide a place for community support and help people with time management. She also offers a class that helps people explore life’s purpose, meaning and legacy. We did a photo session at a really beautiful, mid century modern home in San Francisco. Val’s website is: www.valswan.com, you should definitely check her site out and join in on one of her classes. And if you want to show your prospective clients what it would be like to work with you, I would love to work with you to create some beautiful and fun images for your marketing purposes.
