I’m SO excited to be sharing another beautiful branding session with you today! Meet Brandie Bracy. Brandie is a Coach for Salon Owners who want to grow their businesses, avoid burnout, and scale their businesses. I loved being able to hear more about what Brandie does during our branding portraits. She’s got such a specific niche (which I LOVE) so I wanted to be sure we really captured the essence of who she is during her portraits at Burnham Nashville.
Since Brandie had branding portraits done once before, we discussed the location for our session for a while. Her first session was done at home, so our plan was to give her a new set of images somewhere fresh. This would make sure she could update her website and presence online with a new look. We settled on The Burnham Nashville, and it was just perfect! The Burnham Nashville is modern and so bright, so it was great for the joyful images we wanted to create.
Beyond simply capturing updated photos of Brandie, I wanted to be sure that her portraits really reflected what it’s like to work with her as a client. She works with so many incredible salon owners through her business as their mentor and through her online course, so this was super important to her session. Brandie is known for her “Salon Blueprint” academy and so we worked to create branding portraits that show who she is as a mentor and educator. It was a really fun time!
Brandie, thank you for asking me to capture these Nashville branding portraits for you! I just love them all and I can’t wait to see what you do with your business next!!

You want to make a great first impression on social media & your website… but you don’t have professional images that show off your personality & skill.
Let me guess…your social media images typically consist of a selfie you snapped on your iPhone. Maybe you have an old headshot and a lot of filler stock photos on your website. I get it – I’ve been there! But your brand photos should communicate your values, voice, and skills to your dream clients. You’ve heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” right? Without updated, professional brand photos, your pictures aren’t saying any of the words your dream clients want to hear.
