How to use props in your Branding Photography Session

Choosing Your Props

Props are one of the best ways to show off your personality! They can be as simple as the tools of your trade (laptop, camera, phone) or fun personal items that you love having in your life! 

Adding these elements into your photos can give your audience an idea of what it’s like to work with you. Review your brand story when brainstorming props so that you can be sure the items can assist in communicating your message.

Part of the planning process for your photography session includes a consultation where I find out all about you and your business. Don’t worry, I create this list for you. If you are a go-getter like me, then this list will help you start brainstorming for your session before we chat. I can’t wait to hear what ideas you come up to best convey who you are and the message of your brand.
