Three Great Reasons to Update Your Personal Branding

Reason One: You look different.

Dramatic style changes that look decidedly different than your previous profile pictures means it’s time to update your professional branding images. For women this can be a fresh cut or new color and for men, maybe it’s facial hair from Movember that is making a permanent residence on your mug. No matter the change, the person that walks in the door needs to be the same one they saw online because real talk… clients are going to Google you. Which leads us to…

Reason Two: Clients are going to Google you

Today’s savvy consumer is going to Google you and when they do, you want to make certain that your branding is on point. Just because you didn’t grow up with social media does not make it any less important that you understand it’s place in modern business. Profile pictures (even on private profiles are all public so making sure your brand fits the platform is key. (ie LinkedIn is more formal, Facebook is casual, blogging and Twitter are a place to showcase personality)

Reason Three: You want to elevate in your career.

The position that you would like to career path into can start with with personal branding. Leveling up is not just a mental shift and carefully crafted success within your current role. When it’s time to deliver the message that you are ready for the next step - nothing says “I’m the person for the job” like a great headshot. (After all, a picture is worth a thousand words rights?) When we are creating personal branding images for you, we’ll talk about intent, messaging and what you would like to communicate with them. Approachable? Reliable? Serious yet friendly and someone you’d to give a seat at the table? We can do that.

Thank you to the the Hancock Family for letting us share their beautiful wall display that we designed for their home . We created two wall series from nine favorites.

3 Great Things about Senior Pictures in Seattle during Winter

Who says you need Summer to bring a little sunshine to your Winter Senior pictures? Certainly not us. Seriously, all you need to do is bring your style A-Game and it’s a party. Here’s 3 great things about Senior Pictures in Seattle during Winter

Studio B Portraits_beautiful senior girl in orange hat outside.jpg

Would you believe that not a month (or week) goes by that we don’t photograph a high school senior?- it’s true. There are so many reasons why high school seniors greelight their portrait sessions during different times of the year and the good news is… senior pictures are perfect for any season (even Winter!) Whether you were waiting to get your braces off, navigating a busy Summer schedule or just hoping to be closer to the graduation finish line… any time is a great time to celebrate your Senior Year.

Washington is not called the Evergreen State for nothing. Lush greens, crystal waters and rich Northwest backdrops are a perfect compliment to your senior style any time of year but they are especially our favorite three things during Winter. (And if Seattle serves up a sprinkle or two… how about a fun hat to keep your hair cute and you camera ready?)

Getting fancy for family portraits with the Kasel’s is seriously a guilty pleasure… times 6.

Mom Becky has an absolute gift for dressing her family in outfits that bring out their best features and celebrate their unique personalities.

  1. The key is starting with a theme - this year was studio formal.

  2. Next up, selecting a color palette. Black, silver, and sparkle

  3. Finally, style to match the personality of each family member.

Paying special attention to favorite features and style preferences for each person is a great way to add variety to the overall look and feel of your family portraits. Adore your neckline? Show a little shoulder. Beautiful biceps? - go sleeveless. Love your legs? Why not put those gams on display!
