Now that you know what to wear, you’re wondering what to bring to your branding session. The list of styling accessories, props, and materials is going to depend on your industry. What you do in your business and what elements set your brand apart are best defined by you! There are likely a few items unique to your business that we will want to showcase. We’ll plan everything together, so I’ll help you find those things! But here are a few tips to get you thinking.
Don’t go out and buy everything in your brand color. A great visual brand and color palette includes supporting neutrals. We want your images to be clean, have balance, and serve multiple purposes. This means leaving the color scheme open-ended. Similar to the advice I give about your outfits, I want you to be strategic with picking a few items that are colorful and the rest neutrals.
Without being too cheesy, you may want to bring a few seasonal items. For your winter session, we may snap a photo of you hanging a wreath up at your storefront. These images will not be the focus of our session unless your branding session is specifically to create content for a holiday-centered marketing campaign.
If you’re still not sure what to bring to your branding session, just ask! I am here to help you plan and make sure you get the most out of our time together. I’m happy to hop on a zoom call and review your accessories and props. Most of the photos won’t heavily feature your props. You will still be the highlight of the session, so try not to stress about the background items.
