for the business owner who wants an elevated visual presence & an effortlessly fun experience

You deserve brand photos that make you smile when you're using them. Because  you're tired of using the iPhone photos your husband took on your blank living room wall, or the photos your friend took on her camera that you feel extremely awkward in. And if we're being honest, your potential clients are tired of seeing them, too. Your brand photos should attract your dream clients and customers while showing off who you are (after all, people buy from people). Stiffy headshots that don't feel like you are sooo 2015! But don't worry, friend, we can help. We've joined forces to give you a brand session that combines photography, brand strategy, creative styling, and so much more. We can't wait to meet you.

meet your brand's biggest cheerleaders

Being a brand photographer, brand designer, event and floral designer, and hair and makeup artist, we noticed a gap in the industry and curated the perfect team to fill that need! Your business needs beautiful imagery that showcases not only what you do, but who you are & what your dream clients are looking for. That’s where we come in. We’ve collaborated to create a one-stop-shop brand session experience that will give you the photos that your business needs to help you reach your goals, attract your dream clients, and give you the confidence to be the CEO that you are! It is our honor to help you on this journey. Let's have some fun!

BYB lit a FIRE under my butt for my business

I’ll admit that I have been in a bit of a creative slump and I needed something to spark. To start, working with Jordan to revamp my vision for my brand was delightful. I felt like she took my personality and my brand personality and joined them perfectly. In working with Raechel and Madison, I really loved the idea of using disco balls, so they incorporated them into my floral arrangement and I about died of excitement. Then it came time for Emily to photograph me and I felt SO comfortable in front of her camera. We tried some funky, different poses and it paid off SO well!! I couldn’t recommend this team more to help bring your brand vision to life and gain the confidence you need to keep going!

i felt so confident and comfortable with byb

I literally cannot express how amazing of an experience I had with the talented ladies that make up Build Your Brand. They delivered and then some. Not only do I have a gorgeous set of photos where I look beautiful and feel confident, but I also have the priceless conversations with Jordan (and the rest of the team) about my branding and business. The studio is amazing with the set up and lighting - the pictures are evidence of that for sure. Confidence and putting myself out there is one area I struggle with as a new business owner and these ladies have given me such a boost. I cannot thank each of them enough for their participation and contribution to my journey.

these ladies are absolutely superb

Working with the Building Your Brand Team was such a fantastic experience! From the logo creation to photos for the website, everything embodied my personality and mission for my business! I've had head shots taken before but they never felt like me- these photos do, plus my hair and makeup has never looked so good! These ladies are absolutely superb in their respective fields, and I highly recommend them to every business owner interested in showcasing their unique brand. If you are building, launching, or simply elevating your brand, you'll want Emily, Jordan and Megan by your side!
