Ashley Crocker is an online nutrition and strength coach (you can find her at @ashleycrocker127 on Instagram) Ashley specializes in helping women learn about how to properly fuel their bodies and break up with dieting. She also helps people build muscle and get strong while remaining pain-free through customized programming. Her mission is to educate and empower women to nourish their bodies and not be afraid to lift weights!
Here are several of my favorite photos from her personal branding photo session, and I loved how we captured several aspects of her life and business! I am so excited to see how Ashley is going to use these as she continues to build her business! Plus, she was kind enough to do a mini-interview with me about her session and I am excited to share with you her personal branding experience with me (Dolly DeLong Photography) Enjoy!
Dolly was amazing to work with! She is very down-to-earth and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. I feel like she took the time to get to know me beforehand and get an idea of what I stood for in my business. This made me feel relieved and I knew she would be able to capture the right vibes I was looking for!
I majorly struggled with having enough photos to post my content! Writing content is not my issue, having enough photos was an issue! Haha, so the fact that I was able to get so many options for social media content photos was 100% WORTH IT!
Consistently posting on social media enough to be able to get a brand going.
I’ve been able to consistently post on social media with no worries that I won’t have a picture! I also have plenty of pictures to be able to create my website too!
Branding your business doesn’t have to be a stressful experience, and you don’t have to waste thousands of dollars trying to get it right. When you give yourself grace, find your voice, take your time, search for your specialty, and own your niche, you’ll avoid the most common branding mistakes and end up with a business (and brand) you’re proud of!
Again, this takes a lot of time and I cannot stress enough that if you allow yourself the time, grit, and grace to push yourself to invest and learn from others who have gone before you, I promise you, you will find more of YOUR voice for your business!
If you are interested in learning more about the foundations of building a brand for your small business, I highly recommend checking out Abby Grace Photography’s branding foundations course! I get no benefit from sharing this course, and I know it is beneficial for ANY small business owner (not just a photographer).
Now, if you are interested in beginning the process of deciding if you need branding photos for your own business, I have created a FREE PDF that walks you through my process I send over to my clients. It’s absolutely free, and it can give you some insight into seeing what it takes to plan out your branding session (and to see if you are ready for one and guess what? You can literally apply this to ANY business and if you live in another state that is okay because you can apply this with your own preferred photographer! I just really want you to have a simple checklist to see how to best prep for your own branding photography session!) Check it out HERE!
