You got questions?
I got answers.
How does an out of town brand photoshoot work?
It depends on what you need. If you are a maker and have a product, you can ship your product to me, I will take styled photos of the product and ship it back to you, such as with this shoot.
If you are a service-based business and want custom styled images, such as this shoot I did for a life coach, then I would do the photoshoot in my city and send the final images to you.
Headshots and in-person brand photoshoots only work if we are in the same city. I’m open to travel :) If you have specific questions, reach out and we can talk about your project.
What is brand photography?
Brand photography is when you take photos that are representative of your brand. They are unique, one of a kind, and exclusively yours. Having brand photography helps your business stand out from everyone else who uses stock photos or generic photos.
I explain brand photography in lots of detail in this post.
Is branding the same as website design?
In short, no. Branding is creating the visuals to represent your business. Some of the visual elements include inspiration board, logo, brand style guide, fonts, color palette, business cards, stationary, and more! Website design will USE the branding you have to create the look for the site. It's helpful, dare I say, imperative to have a solid brand in place when creating your website because you can add in so much more personality when you have a strong brand.
can I use branding if I don't purchase website design?
With my branding service, I create marketing materials in addition to your brand, such as business cards and digital catalog, I also equip you with a brand style guide so you can use those guidelines as you create graphics for your social media or any other marketing content so your brand can be streamlined across all platforms.
Can I provide my own photos if I work with you for a website?
Yes! Even though styled photos is a service I offer, you can definitely provide your own photos. However, I do require that they be high-resolution images (200 ppi or higher).
How do I know which web platform is best for my business?
Depends on what you want. If you're looking for a professional site that's very user-friendly and one that makes blogging a breeze, I recommend Squarespace. Squarespace is best for small businesses and small teams. You can easily make changes and the backend is simple and wonderful to use PLUS they have gorgeous templates that can be tweaked with a little code to make them your own (something I offer).
If you're looking for an overview on web platforms to see what would work for you, check out this post.
Do you provide the website domain and hosting?
Clients are responsible for website domain, and purchasing the platform subscription. Squarespace does offer domains with purchasing a subscription on their platform. Because this can get a little confusing, I will set all those things up for you and/or walk you through all these logistics during our website project.
How does payment work?
For whichever project you choose, the first payment is a percentage of the project cost and goes toward the total amount. This initial payment is a non-refundable deposit and will secure your date on my calendar.
Starting in 2019, payment plans will be offered. Options include 4 month, 6 month and 8 month payment plans.
Payments and can be made via Stripe, Apple pay, or Paypal.
