Capturing brand photography for author Alison Woods was such a treat! She never intended to write books. Frustrated when she couldn’t find a series with an African American girl as the lead character to share with her oldest granddaughter; she sat down with her notebook and started to write. This was the beginning of her journey as a self-published children’s book author.
Planning & Styling
Alison admitted that she hadn’t taken pictures in a while. In her words ‘she’s not fancy,’ but let us tell you…she is fabulous! Her brand perfectly matches her personality and story-telling style: bright, vivid, and unique. Based on our consultation, we planned three concepts for the session: lifestyle, interacting with her grandchildren (the inspiration for her books), and business portraits.
Based on Alison’s goals and priorities, we wanted to really hone in on the release of her newest book, My Name is Kash. One of our main goals as brand photographers is to help you be more profitable in your business. The launch of a new product is prime time to update brand photos.
Alison booked our Standard Brand Photo Shoot which gave us 2 hours to capture lots of content. This is enough for at least 3-6 months of consistent posting without feeling overused. Alison’s home provided the perfect backdrop for headshots, business portraits, and lifestyle photos featuring her grandchildren.
