HOUSTON CORPORATE AND BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY

It is a well-known fact that consumers do not buy products, they buy brands.

Getting your branding right is an often overlooked and immensely important piece of positioning your company.

We take pride in our work and ensuring that your headshot and branding photography is an asset to your company’s overall brand image. As one of the most sought-after studios in Houston, we get to the heart of what your brand is about, and that shines through our corporate and lifestyle branding photography.

Hello

Behind The Camera

Hi, I’m allison

As a Houston professional photographer, I love making business owners feel powerful and confident about their professional branding images.  There is nothing more important in your marketing toolbox than showing your potential customer who you are and what your business is all about.  With a custom planning session, I get to know what is unique about you so that I can help create the perfect, customized plan for your session.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM YOUR BRANDING SESSION?

We like to think about a branding session almost like a high school senior session for an adult! Personal branding photography sessions aim to show who you are, what you stand for, and what you and your brand are all about.

To begin thinking about your Houston branding session, make a list of all the adjectives that describe you and your business.  What did you come up with?  Knowing your brand adjectives is the first step to having a successful branding photoshoot.

Highly recommend.

Allison helped me get updated headshots that were crisp, professional, but not excessively staged. The studio space is bright and airy and if you feel a little awkward having your picture taken which I have been at times, she makes you feel eternally comfortable. Highly recommend. – Shannon Q.

FAQs ABOUT BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY

What are "branding" photos?

Branding photos go beyond your standard headshot. These sessions are perfect if you need multiple outfit changes, locations and different looks for your social media, website and other marketing channels. 

What do I wear for a branding session?

What you should wear for a branding session can change according to what your profession is. We will discuss wardrobe in detail during our Custom Planning Session.  For branding sessions, we recommend a minimum of 4 outfits to get the most amount of variety from your session.

How soon can I see my photos?

With every branding photography session, we offer an immediate image selection.  Most of our clients find it very helpful to review the photographs with Allison’s expertise and professional opinion.  If that does not work with your schedule, we will schedule a time that works for you to come back and view your photos.  

Can you photograph my entire team?

Of course! We can take team photos on location or in the studio. Team or group portraits are great to have on your website or in your office literature. Some companies even like to frame and hang up their team photos in the conference room or lobby. If you are interested in getting your team photo framed, we can help you with that as well with our framing services!

Can you do a photoshoot in my office?

Absolutely! If your office location is important to your brand (think yoga studio, flower shop, artist or lawyer) then we think that is a great idea! All of the location options will be discussed during our Custom Planning Session. 

How often should I update my branding photos?

A good rule of thumb to follow is to update your branding photos every 1-2 years. We also recommend updating your branding photography if you have made any changes to your appearance, such as a new hair color or a new pair of glasses. You want to keep your branding photos looking fresh and representative of your personality, especially for your social media. 

How much does it cost?

Custom branding sessions start at $1290. Most of our clients spend on average $1290-$6000 for their custom photo shoots. Since each request is unique, the best way to get an accurate quote for your specific needs is to book at 10 minute Discovery Call with Allison.
