My Process for a Styled Brand Photoshoot

Styled brand photography is high-quality photos that represent your brand or business. Today I'm showing you a behind-the-scenes look into the steps that go into a styled brand photoshoot and I'll show you a recent project that I completed that is one such shoot.

Recently, I've been working with makers and artisans who sell products and while crafting a brand photoshoot involves a model to show off the product, I focus the shoot around the quality, look and feel of the product as well as the brand itself. 

Hopefully, today's post will shed some light on the ins-and-outs of a styled brand photoshoot if you're curious or if you just want to see some beautiful photos, it's all here.

I would love to share my experience of slow growth and why I’m learning to embrace this way of thinking.
