This tax professoinal need updated branding photos for her small business. We created this office look in my studio. She is sitting at a white table that serves as her desk. She's wearing a light blue sweater and rose gold scarf. Blue, rose gold, and white are her branding colors. She has a notebook, her glasses, and laptop on the table. Her notebook is rosegold. I'm photographing her from above so we can capture the scene on the table. There is a window behind her covered in white sheer curtains and the light softens the image. Lighting is so important in branding photos for consistency across your site. This client has blond hair down to her shoulders and is smiling at the camera. Her hands are curled around a white coffee mug. She looks friendly and welcoming. This branding image was created in my Pasadena studio. Rebecca Little Photography

This is a collage of six images showing people playing tug of war. It's a bright sunny day and they are outside standing in front of a white house that serves as the CEO's office. There is a man in his late 50's wearing a dark suit and button down shirt. He had black glasses and a friendly demeanor. There is a redheaded woman in her early 60's with a purple cardigan. Beside her is a blond woman in her 20's wearing a black t-shirt. There's another woman in her 20's wearing a sleeveless black shirt and a woman in her 40's with her medium-length hair cut stylishly. They are all smiling, laughing, and having a good time. The rope is thick and bright yellow, They have it wrapped around their hands and are pulling in opposite directions. The GenXers are on one side and the Baby Boomers are on the other. This branding photo illustrates that different generations are often at odds and working against each other.

This is a collage that was created during Full-day Branding Sessions by Rebecca Little Photography. These six clients use KSHIFT, a Pasadena company that shifts the way you think and brings productivity and fun to your workspace. We have Pauline, a smiling redhead in a purple jacket, and Lisa, who is full of energy, We also have Bill who's giving a peace sign and a big smile, and in another image is wearing goofy glasses with dollar sign frames. Finally, there's Greg sporting a yellow shirt with his fists raised in triumph. These branding images are for Kat's updated website. Good website photos are important. They convey a sense of energy and good will. They attract the right client who wants to see what it's like to work with you. When you have the bright white background it is the perfect blank canvas to show off expression and outfits.

Your Branding session is planned in advance

We will have detailed conversations about your business and what kinds of website and social media photos you want.

I will map out the entire session including specific shots and the photographic style you want. An example of style would be “well-lit and bright images, showing happy faces and bright colors”. I’ll create a lookbook with reference images, technical details, and notes from our planning sessions.

We’ll talk about outfit selection

Wardrobe is important and we’ll have detailed discussions about what to wear. You may want to have several outfits on hand so we get a variety of looks and it won’t look like all the images came from the same session.

I can tell you what colors work well on camera and how to prepare to get the best branding photos possible.

If you’re involving clients and staff, we’ll discuss their wardrobe as well.

What if it’s just you in the office and you want more people?

Let’s get creative! Friends and favorite clients are usually thrilled to play the role of “extra”, especially if you offer lunch. A group of people give visual interest and energy to your website photos and provide a nice variety.

This image was created for the Fiducuary Round Table of the San Gabriel Valley. They have their monthly meetings at the University Club in Pasadena and I set up this shot on the patio. There are 13 board members and they wanted an updated photo for their website. I lighted this with two strobes and a diffusion panel. It's important to have flattering, even light and have all group members lighted correctly. The patio provides a nice setting with greenery in the background. The formal atire of the board members is softened by the outdoor setting. Image created by Rebecca Little Photography in Pasadena.
