I cannot wait to show you Emily’s beautiful Nashville branding session! Emily is one of my biz besties and truly one of my all-time favorite people ever. When she reached out about branding photos, I think I jumped up and down because I was just SO excited to be capturing these images for her incredible brand. Emily is a copywriter and is the owner of Emily Writes Well. I was so excited to get to capture this beautiful lady and her brand story through these portraits. She is seriously an incredible strategic copywriter and she’s helped business owners improve their copy with her magical skills. And now, her branding and online presence match the amazing writer she is!
During our session, we talked a lot about what Emily’s up to these days. We both shed a few tears when she told me a story about when she first started out. I had hired her to write a blog post for me. It was my first time outsourcing to another person and I was beyond terrified. But she told me that after our call, she got off the phone and talked to her husband where she said “this is going to work! I am going to make this work!” and was crying because she was so happy! Now she’s got a seriously amazing business and is helping so many other business owners update their website copy, email sequences, landing pages, and so much more! I’m so, so honored that she asked me to capture these portraits for her.
If you’re wondering what you’d include in your branding portraits, take a look through Emily’s images. Branding portraits are really about bringing your personality into the photos! Create a series of images that will carry you through a season of business life. I love that Emily held books, posed with her daughter, and showed me around her house and home office space. And it didn’t stop there! We captured her working on her laptop AND with a client. Now, future clients can really get a good feeling about who Emily is beyond her work and that will speak volumes as she updates her website and social media using these images.
