Business portraits for a quick profile update. Or comprehensive branding for small business owners

Together we can design and create business portraits or business branding images that convey your essence & connect authentically with your market

Are your current images representing your career or small business brand?

Do they convey your essence and authenticity to your peers or clients?

Your career path, or small business offerings evolve over time. And the images you are using online now may no longer be the best fit for you.

We will have a chat to discuss what your needs are now, and also what kind of imagery might serve you best in the next 12 months.

How I can help

My clients hire me to deliver business portraits or professional photos for LinkedIn that are authentic, approachable and contemporary. 
To create business branding images that will show a more well rounded view for small business owners. And to show them working in their business.

Professional images send a powerful message to prospective clients or recruiters by capturing the essence of who you are.

What do your current business portraits say about your career aspirations or your small business?

Are your business portraits or small business branding images representing you the way you envisaged online?

Hate having your photos taken too?

Here's what happened when I recently updated my own business portraits

I don't want to do this...
I get it, being in front of a camera is not always the most fun experience. My latest session I threw a mini tantrum half way through because I thought all the images looked like trash.
I've got this weird thing...
I have an annoying gimpy lazy eye that half closes when exposed to flash. It looks like I’m half winking on one side only. My smile is crooked, and I have chronic resting bitch face. Trust that I will do my utmost to put you at ease so you can relax and have great time.

What do I even wear...
For one set of images I hadn’t styled my outfits choices well. Basically I looked like a lumpy rectangle. In a similar pose, a fitted top worked so much better and gave my body shape. When updating your images, think about what looks great together. Don’t be afraid of more form fitting items, often these will help to slim you down in camera (along with kick arse posing!)⁠
Well that wasn't as bad as I thought...
I want to show you that even if it feels like an effort to put yourself in front of the camera, that I’VE GOT YOU! It might feel super awkward, but trust me that together we will create images that you will want to post on your LinkedIn, website or social channels. ⁠

I'm excited to work with you  to create images you are proud to have represent your brand. And that you can't wait to use to market yourself.

It can be confusing going through the process of updating your website with fresh images. But as small business owners it is important to consider that images of you and your business, rather than stock photography, can help your ideal clients feel more connected to you and your purpose.

Other small business owners give their experience updating their business portraits or business branding images

It is the second time I reach Angela, back in 2017 I had a specific professional goal around landing into a new country and building my network, the outcome was an absolute success. Time passes and now as a grounded Newcomer and business owner, it was time to do branding and who would be better than Angela.

She saw me and got involved with what I wanted to communicate. More importantly, I did not have to do anything than showing up! The locations she found matched perfectly with the essence of my business, her insights while planing not only brought understanding but also her accurate eye supported me to put in alignment my business and the personal moment I am at.

Angela knows the challenges that an entrepreneur or small business owner faces within the new normal , which is invaluable when you are creating or expanding.

I selected Angela among a sea of local photographers in Vancouver to help me create a portfolio for my business. She was always accommodating, cheerful, and so attentive to every detail in every pose. During every photo session I felt relaxed because I could completely trust that Angela knew what she was doing and could make every image look flattering. The images were amazing and her edits were professional. She really has an eye for detail and connecting with exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Angela for your gift!

My recent branding photoshoot with Angela was phenomenal. Angela’s warm authenticity made me feel comfortable, and she went the extra mile with little extra touches, on the day of the shoot. And the photos were fantastic – I never knew I could look so good. As someone with very high standards, I would recommend Angela to anyone, in a heartbeat!
