Prepare For Your Photoshoot

Capturing Your Personality

When Marie designs your photos, your client’s will see your personality, as well as business characteristics that define you. Marie will encapsulate your personal branding stories through a series of images of you at work and at play. They will capture the essence that motivates you in your business, showcasing both inner and outer beauty reflected in the poses and surroundings.

Cultivate Your Spirit of Engagement

Create a mood board or a private Pinterest page for inspiration on style and personality. Collect images to brainstorm ideas for your brand photos that represent a snapshot into a world you want to portray. Whether it’s serious, modern, playful, bohemian, or eclectic, it should describe the combination of your personal nature and business character.
