SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS
Who want to connect with their audience on a personal level through their social media and online presence.
IT’S TIME TO UPLEVEL YOUR DIGITAL DRAWER OF PHOTOS TO HELP YOU SHOW UP CONSISTENTLY, TELL YOUR BRAND STORY, AND SERVE THOSE WHO MOST NEED YOUR GIFTS.
A SAMPLING OF MY WORK
Being the driven business owner you are, I probably don't have to tell you that your audience needs to see your brand show up on a regular basis before they'll trust you enough to work with you.
But here’s the problem- you pull up your social media scheduler, or sit down to draw up plans for your next product launch… and you’re still pulling from the same 10-15 images you've been using over the last year (or more).
And what’s worse, the photos are all from different sources, with inconsistent light and mismatched editing. There’s no cohesion, which means your brand’s visual presence is inconsistent. It’s patch-worked, duct-taped together, and you realized what used to be “good enough” isn’t really working anymore.
I'm Phoenix Grey
A photographer who, after falling head-over-heels in love with maternity, realized that there are a LOT of small business owners out there in need of a strong, visual brand. It's my PASSION to partner with creative entrepreneurs to help make that come to life!
With more than 10 years experience in the wedding industry, I’ve come to be known for photographs that capture my clients as they truly are- classic and comfortable in their own skin. Relaxed enough to let their real smile shine through, without sacrificing any of the professionalism your brand has come to be known for!
Though I’m based in the Washington, DC area, my clients have taken me across the country and throughout Europe. My work has been published by many of our industry’s top editors, and in addition to photographing, I also have the extreme honor of speaking from the stage and teaching workshops for small business owners and fellow photographers.
Outside of work, you’ll find me cultivating a life richly lived with the family and friends. My husband Matt and I work together, and love both those easy Friday nights at home AND the beautiful chaos of European travel.
I'M A BIG FAN OF TAILORING- WHETHER FOR GOWNS, A WELL-CUT SUIT, OR PHOTOGRAPHS, I BELIEVE MOST THINGS CAN BE MADE BETTER AND MORE ENJOYABLE WHEN IT'S TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS.
Branding sessions are customized according to your small business' aesthetic, message, and upcoming needs; prior to your shoot, we'll meet to discuss your ideas and hopes for your portraits, as well as any upcoming launches, offerings, or events for me to keep in mind as I plan your session.
I'll send over an in-depth questionnaire, which I'll use to do my pre-shoot research, and I’ll then map out your shoot to best tell the story of your brand, planning the flow of your shoot from beginning to end.
WHAT WILL WE SHOOT?
WHATEVER YOUR BRAND NEEDS! IF THAT'S BIO PHOTOS AND WORKING SHOTS, WE'LL PLAN TIME TO CAPTURE THOSE IN A VARIETY OF COMPOSITIONS AND LAYOUTS TO ENSURE YOU HAVE MAXIMUM USAGE ACROSS PLATFORMS.
If you’re in need of photos for sales pages, email funnels, or online ads, we’ll talk through what those launches will look like, and I’ll brainstorm a collection of material that will compliment your message and stand out from the offer-heavy landscape of social media. You’ll leave with a thorough collection of photos suited for use across the platforms you intend to utilize.
Every branding session is different from the last (which is part of the reason I love it so much!)- I do copious research and ask a lot of questions to make sure your photographs work for YOUR business.
That's right. I like big reveals, and that's exactly what you get after booking a shoot with me. At the ordering appointment, you will get to see all of the best portraits from your session and decide what products you'd like to display your images in. Here you may choose to order additional digitals, albums, or prints.
this is for you if...
- You need to attract your dream clients but you are not doing so.
- You're planning content for multiple streams of income and find yourself in need of on-brand photographs across multiple platforms.
- You can’t remember the last time you took professional portraits for your business and you know it’s time.
- You're a creative small business owner driven by big goals and an even bigger heart for service.
- You have a solid marketing plan, but lack a cohesive collection of photos to make your brand consistently, visually recognizable.
- You're looking ahead to the next few quarters and realize you don't have the photographs needed to furnish your sales pages, ads, and pre-launch content.
- You're tired of duct-taping your visual marketing game together with a hodgepodge of DIY photos, a myriad of iPhone presets, and images from a dozen different photographers.
Where can I use these photos?
Anywhere it suits your business! My past clients have used their brand photographs on everything from newsletter headers to Instagram, from About pages to Facebook ads. I'll get a good idea of how you're thinking of using your photographs before we shoot so I can tailor my approach to fit your needs!
MY OFFICE ISN'T Pinterest perfect... WHERE WILL WE do the session?
If your home or office isn't ideal for your session, we'll brainstorm together a few outdoor or venue rental options for your shoot!
WILL I RECEIVE THE HIGH-RES FILES?
Each collection comes with an online back-up of the high-resolution files with download permissions and a commercial use license.
Capturing time and precious moments of love and connection that can be reminisced upon in years to come and viewed upon your walls.
