What is Personal Brand Photography? 

(And why this is important for your business.)

As an Ibiza-based photographer, there is nothing more amazing, for me, than capturing the essence of a fellow female business owner through photography.

As busy business owners, we often forget what the most important part of our business is – it’s us! We’re all unique and have special gifts and stories to tell; things that connect us with our dream clients. And so to get the opportunity to capture this through my work – to capture their light, their personalities, their essence – here with magical Ibiza as our backdrop – it really does bring me a sense of fulfilment.

Your personal brand photography will elevate your visual identity like nothing else. So why isn’t everyone investing in this?

In this article, I’m going to answer some of the questions I get asked a lot and explain more about why I am so passionate about my work.

First up, what is a personal brand?

In today’s fast-paced, digitally-driven world, establishing a personal brand has become more important than ever. Your personal brand is the unique blend of your personality, values, and expertise that sets you apart from others in your industry. 

It’s how you present yourself to the world, both online and offline. Your personal brand encompasses everything from your website and social media presence to your visual identity and the way you communicate with your audience.

Why is personal branding important?

Creating a strong, magnetic personal brand allows you to build a genuine connection with your audience and establish trust. 

As a soulful female business owner, your personal brand embodies the essence of who you are, infusing your work with authenticity, passion, and purpose. It allows you to tell your story and convey your values, attracting like-minded clients who resonate with your vision.

In today’s crowded marketplace, a personal brand can set you apart from your competitors. It gives you a unique voice and identity that speaks directly to your target audience. By investing in your personal brand, you become memorable, recognizable, and build a loyal following that believes in your mission.

How does personal brand photography elevate your personal brand?

Photography plays a crucial role in elevating your personal brand. It captures the essence of who you are, showcasing your personality, style, and the soulful energy you bring to your work. Beautiful, high-quality imagery has the power to evoke emotions, connect with your audience on a deeper level, and leave a lasting impression.

You have a short amount of time when your ideal clients land on your website or social media feed to connect with them and make them feel like they want to work with you. 

Photography can communicate in seconds who you are and what you do and make people want to buy into your brand.

A personal brand shoot is an opportunity to collaborate with a skilled photographer – I mean, I’d love that to be me – someone who understands your vision and can translate it into captivating visual storytelling. 

Together, we’ll create a collection of images that authentically represent your brand, reflecting its soulful nature. Whether it’s a striking headshot, lifestyle images that showcase you in your element, or creative compositions that reflect your brand’s unique vibe, my photography captures the essence of your personal brand and communicates it to the world. 

The portraits we take together will go beyond the page to tell your story visually. Giving you and your brand authentic visibility that stands out from the sea of sameness. So that you differentiate yourself, create more impact, and an authentic connection with your clients.

Every shot is unapologetically authentic — translating your depth, your value, and your pure potential from my lens to your page. 

Why come to Ibiza for your personal brand shoot? 

If you are a soulful business owner but you’re not based here in Ibiza, let me tell you that there is no better place to capture your personal brand photography. Aside from the fact that you could arrange a tax-deductible business trip to the stunning white isle, the end result is why you make the journey…

Speaking of which, my personal favourite package is called ´the journey´. This membership allows us to collaborate over the course of a year, establishing a unique synergy and collaborate closely on creating your personal brand. We will plan 4 shoots per year and we can also include locations in Holland and the UK. 

As a natural light photographer inspired by nature, textures, beauty, colours and the sun, for me, there is no other place providing such magnificent light and natural beauty as Ibiza. We can travel to some of the most remote and beautiful spots in the island, where nature and lighting come together to reveal a magical world.

During your personal brand shoot, we can incorporate elements that are meaningful to you, such as Ibiza’s breathtaking landscapes, the magnetic energy, or even the stunning Mediterranean sunset. By infusing these elements into your images, you create a distinctive connection between your personal brand and the island’s soulful energy, resonating with your audience and leaving a lasting impression.

To summarise: 

An aligned personal brand shoot, here in Ibiza, is an invaluable investment for any soulful female business owner looking to attract and work with dream clients. It helps you showcase your authentic self, communicate your values, and connect with your audience on a deeper level. Through the power of photography, you can elevate your brand’s visual story and create a lasting impression that leaves a mark in the hearts and minds of your clients.

Remember, your personal brand is an ever-evolving journey, and a personal brand shoot is a celebration of your growth, passion, and purpose. So embrace the power of soulful photography, infuse it with the essence of your brand, and watch as it propels your business to new heights!

How to post about your personal branding photoshoot

One of the most frustrating things for me as a brand photographer is when people don’t use their photos.

I know it sounds crazy but trust me, it happens. And it’s easily done as sometimes receiving a catalog of amazing photos of yourself can seem overwhelming. Trust me, I know…

You may also not be sure about how to post these photos on social media in a way that feels authentic to you. 

So, when we’re not sure what to do, what do we do? Nothing. 

Here are some tips that I find help to really make the most out of your photoshoot and the wonderful images you’ll receive:

  1. Believe that you are worthy – you are amazing and 100% worthy of these beautiful photos. Kick that imposter syndrome to the curb. The world is ready to hear what you have to say.
Kim Van Zadelhof, Tanit Retreats Ibiza
  1. Own your story – you have a story to tell and your photos will help you to do this. Look at each of your photos and make notes on how they help you to do this.
  1. Put yourself in your client’s shoes – What do they need to know about you and what you offer. You can use your photography to tell them and build trust. Your clients don’t care if you have the odd wrinkle – they only want to know how you can help THEM.
Sarah Moxom, CEO and Entrepreneur
  1. Create a plan – plan to post a new intro post using your most favourite pictures then also plan posts to talk about your services, products and launches. 
  1. Tag your photographer. This really means a lot to us as we have invested in you and your brand story too…and it allows us to hype you up and share your posts too!
Claudia Sparh, CEO & Founder, The Holy Mama

The other thing that can be really useful is making sure you have a good relations with your photographer and that they know your story, business, and what you want to use your photos. 

I like to call it – sharing your vision.

That way, we can really make sure that the shoot delivers on this.  

Please just remember that your clients need to see your face. They want to feel a connection with you and sharing your personal brand photography is the best way to do this. 

You’ve got this.
