7 tips on how to plan a successful brand photo shoot

1. PLAN YOUR PROPS- When gathering ideas, think of the day to day items (props) that you use in your business. This is a great way to start sourcing and organizing your props. For example if you are a yoga instructor you may use a yoga mat, blocks, crystals, meditation cards and water bottle.

2. PLAN YOUR WARDROBE- Outfits & accessories. What do you wear to work?  What do you wear when you meet with a client or customer? What are you comfortable wearing? Making sure you have outfits that are industry appropriate and you feel super confident in.

3. PLAN YOUR LOCATION- Where do you work? Do you want to shoot in your work space, my studio or find a unique space to rent? I love my studio because I can create different “sets” and it is indoors…HELLO air conditioning!!! But, I do have clients that want to shoot in their own space or studio. Some of my clients love renting Air BNB’s for a fun change of scenery and the pick of decor and maybe more space than their own office.

4. PLANNING CONTENT-  What format of images do you need? Landscape, vertical, a hero image with a lot of white space? Where are you using these images? Blog, website, social media.

5. PLAN DETAILS SHOT LIST- What are the topics you talk about over and over again with clients? These will help plan a detailed shot list of images you know you need. I will help you create some other image ideas!

6.  CREATE A MOOD BOARD-  Make a Pinterest board of ideas, poses, colors and props that inspire you. This helps me a ton when I work with my clients to ensure that we are on the same page for their brand visuals.

7.  HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU NEED- Typically my full brand shoots are between 40-100 images. 25 images of you sprinkled throughout your social platforms could last you for a good 3-6 months. Knowing this ahead of time also helps us plan the time we shoot and how many outfits you will need.
