unique branding photography for creative business owners

creative branding

I capture the best, most authentic version of YOU in impactful photographs & draw in your ideal clients.

My photos capture YOU– not just what you look like, but who you are, your values, your service, your mission, your brand.  

We’ll explore what makes you unique and create a customized “on-line gallery” (to use on social media, websites, etc.).  These photos will capture people’s attention and allow them to trust you and your brand.

Stand out in today’s crowded marketplace with custom-tailored, high-quality photography. 

I support passionate business owners who value integrity and authenticity.  I’ll provide personal guidance and a collaborative, supportive experience that will bring out the best of YOU in front of the camera.

Why this Branding Photographer?

Hi, I’m Lisa!

I am currently ranked as one of the Top 10 Photographers in the United States. As for branding, I’ve worked with large-scale brands like Volvo, Hershey’s, Four Seasons and for small businesses, influencers, and organizations.

My approach is highly personable and focuses on you as an individual, no cookie-cutter approach here. 

Emotionally Gripping

“Lisa’s work is so emotionally gripping and communicates the unfiltered depth of human emotion in a beautiful and full range. As for the final products, Lisa’s photos clearly communicated our brand. We have already been able to utilize her imagery in so many ways.”

— Dr. Day: Dermatologist
Poet with a camera

“Lisa is a poet with a camera, she captures and distills not only you, but your story. Her attention to the personal details of your life before the shoot still leaves room for creative spontaneity that makes her images fresh and exciting. I was so comfortable during the photo shoot, playing around, singing, and dancing, and I love the results!

— Lisa: Opera Singer
Captured me naturally

“Lisa is incredibly thoughtful and engaging. She made me feel relaxed and had so many creative branding ideas. I usually feel awkward in front of a camera but felt so much more confident with Lisa. She captured me naturally.”

— Lauren: Travel Blogger

Branding Photography Packages
work with me for high-quality images and plenty of content for your website and social media outlets.
I even have packages that give you updated seasonal content as you and your brand evolve!

Yes, I personally photograph each branding session that I book.  Images on my blog were shot by me and are not a compilation of dozens of photographers’ best work. When you book me, what you see is what you get–  quality artisanship and personal attention.

I know it's common for photographers to only edit the shots for the blog and give clients the un-edited "b-roll," but it's important to me to give you "all the moments" even if it takes some serious time and effort on my part.  During a shoot, I might only blog 25 shots, but deliver 200 photos.  That is a lot of extra time and attention spent perfecting exposure, crop, white balance etc on each image, but I have heard from many past clients that it means so much to them, so it is worth it for me!

Yes, I include this with every full branding package, and most clients say it is the most helpful and least expected of my package offerings.  I find out more about you, your brand, what sets you apart and how to visually convey those concepts and arrange them in a realistic and comfortable timeline.  Basically, I help you to figure out what fits *you* best and work through the logistics to reach your photography goals.  I'll help you think through all sorts of things from what to wear and where to shoot and figure out what works best for your brand, every one is different!  

Your online gallery displays your full set of high-resolution, polished photos.  Clients are able to view and purchase prints directly from the site.  Anyone with a full package will also be able to download high-res files.  My site is directly connected to my favorite printer in San Francisco who also use the best quality archival inks, papers etc.  Watermarks and copyright information will not appear on downloads or prints.  You are able to use your digital files to create your own items from business cards to billboards! 

I don't take chances with your branding shoot.  I have multiple cameras, lenses, batteries, etc. just in case of technical difficulties of any kind. After photographing for over ten years, I can tell you, this is important and something I've had to use.  It is a big investment on my part, and something that I'm happy to do for my clients.

Please contact me for MORE information about branding photography packages & al la carte options.



Would you believe me if I said a majority of my clients worry about this? Don’t worry. I don’t expect you to be a professional model. First of all, I’ll take some time to get to know you first, we’ll choose a location and look that makes you feel comfortable. We'll also plan to have plenty of time, so no one feels rushed.  When I do start taking photos, the process is laid back. I’ll find the most beautiful lighting and scenery and give you easy instructions, asking you to move and interact in a way that allows me to capture candid moments in a flattering style. There will be times when you probably forget I’m right there. When viewing your finished photos, you'll probably say something like, "OMG this is me, who knew I was so cute/cool/fun?"  At least, this has been my experience so far!

Branding shoots are typically photographed on Mondays or Wednesdays. However, I try to be flexible for my clients and their business, so if those days cannot work, we will find something that does!

I am able to photograph anything really, and literally custom taylor my coverage to meet your unique needs.  I typically focus on capturing creative portraits and an eclectic mix of photos that tell your personal story, including natural moments as they occur.  Everything from professional headshots, lifestyle headshots (showing your personality and interests), behind the scenes photos (including client interaction and you at work), detail shots (including products or items with your branding) and interiors and exteriors if applicable. I have photographed many unique businesses and really I love diversity and am up for whatever!

Of Course you are (don't worry most of them felt the same way)!  Remember you'll be seeing yourself **through my eyes**. I'll take time to get to know you and suggest interesting ideas as early as our first meeting.  I can't wait to capture photos that are uniquely you and your business!

Don't worry!  As we brainstorm together I'll give you a general idea of how long each of your concepts will take to photograph.  I'll create a basic timeline to accomplish those goals in a way that is realistic and low-stress so that your true colors will show in camera.  

Absolutely!  If you book me, I will be the photographer assigned to your session. I do not assign different photographers to my clients. All of the images on my site were shot by me or my assistant, and are not a compilation of dozens of photographers’ best work. When you book me, what you see is what you get–quality artisanship and personal attention.

Sure is!  I've been a professional photographer for over ten years.  I still have to pinch myself sometimes that I get to do something that is so much fun on a daily basis!  Most wedding photographers do this in addition to their full time job.  By hiring me, you know that this is my full-time occupation and that you and your business gets my full attention.  

Anywhere.  While you've probably noticed most of my work is close-ish to home: DC, NYC, Philly,  etc I've also traveled a little farther for clients in Baltimore, Nashville, Saint Louis, Niagara Falls, Outer Banks and many other locations. 

You are not alone, this actually happens a lot-- I know as a small business owner myself, investing in your business requires planning, it also usually takes a bit to get on my calendar.  If your heart is set on working together, your best bet is to reach out and say something like, "I'm planning to get branding photos in (insert your season of choice)" and ask to schedule a preliminary video chat, this will get the process started.  This sort of flexibility basically ensures that we will be able to work together & give you time to plan, yay!!!

Now!  If your heart is set on working together, your best bet is to reach out and say something like, "I'd really like to have branding photography done (insert your season of choice) and (insert year or choice)" and ask me what dates I have open.  This sort of flexibility basically ensures that we will be able to work together yay!!!

Easy!  Just contact me and we'll arrange a time to get to know each other over video chat and ensure that we are a perfect match.  Making it official is easy, too--  everything can be done on-line and takes about ten minutes! Click here to contact me!
