EXPERIENCE

I hear you telling me your biggest issues are knowing how to brand yourself and having a plan of action to execute on. You are struggling to get quality pictures of yourself in-action behind the scenes to share with your audience and the kicker is, you want the control of your own photoshoot as opposed to relying on images provided to you during an event, by photographers with wildly different styles, or from generic stock photo libraries.

My style of brand photography is very specifically designed to not just capture you and your business but educate you on how to tell your story. I was in your shoes for years, and I can honestly tell you some of my biggest problems were finding my ideal clients as well as sharing images that represented the true quality of my business. My Branding Experience solves all those issues and more.

I have dedicated my photography journey and education to learning brand strategies specifically for creatives like you. I have developed the proper techniques to shoot and edit the special art of detail and product photography along with capturing portraits and events that define who you are and why you share your gift with the world.

V. The Process

Either you are here because you are a driven, creative entrepreneur who is struggling with consistent imagery, or you are on top of telling your brand story and know it's time for fresh photos! I am dedicated to helping you weave your skills and product with your personal brand identity to achieve a strong overall brand story. I provide passionate imagery that evokes emotion and depicts how deeply you care for craft and clientele.

After a decade of serving the Charlotte, North Carolina community, Chef Lisa Brooks is growing by leaps and bounds, stepping outside the kitchen and into her role as Chief Executive Officer of Heart and Soul Personal Chef Services.

If you are a Personal Chef and you wonder if it’s possible to carry the title of C.E.O. Lisa is here to tell you it is! Her passion for southern cuisine ignited her culinary journey, but perseverance and grand vision has created a space for these passions to take on a life of their own.

Okay, I took sooooo many pictures while I was in Texas it actually crashed my computer at one point 😉 That is going to be my new bar for excellence, I need to get so many pictures that my computer goes into overload! Well, maybe not, as it is, I need a new one lol

I will warn you, there will be a couple of articles about this trip because it was so amazing and I met so many wonderful people along the way, I just can’t fit it all into one!

I am head over heels for Chef Keisha! I had the pleasure of getting to know her through another client and was so excited for this photoshoot! Keisha was the first to jump on the Mini Branding Sessions when they were released and then we extended it a bit to fit in some food shots as well!
Keisha’s business is in full bloom right now, she is in the midst of building a new website to offer her gourmet dishes while also learning new and advanced techniques and business practices under Executive Chef Lisa Brooks!

Chef Monica Thomas of Tailored Taste took some time to sit down with me and chat about how things have been going in her business since Covid began, how she has made some pivots, what is in store for the future and of course where she got her inspiration for the Preserved Lemon Bucatini recipe she has been so generous to share with us for the the month of June!

What a treat it was to finally have the opportunity to work with Donna Maria! This soft-spoken, beautiful woman always comes prepared and is one of the most passionate, fun-loving business owners I have ever had the pleasure to meet!

To give you some background, Donna Maria founded the Indie Business Network which was the “first for-profit recurring revenue membership business on the Internet”.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy begins and ends with loving on our clients by creating an experience. We don’t believe in snapping pictures and delivering a gallery. It goes well beyond photographs for us. Amanda Richardson Boutique Photography is built on relationships. We would never claim to be a one-stop-shop for just anyone interested in having their picture taken. Instead, we take pride in building our education to serve a special kind of clientele.

THE FIRST STEP towards working together is selecting the best collection for your business needs. The best way to do this is hop on a Zoom call and chat about you and your business needs! We serve business owners who are ready to invest in themselves and their businesses. Typically you have been in business 3 or more years, are in the midst of a website rebrand, launching a new project like a cookbook or product line, or are wanting to invest in quality, consistent imagery for your marketing campaigns. I work with driven, creative entrepreneurs who are ready to improve their visual brand to attract high end clients. If that's you, let's talk!

01.

NEXT, it is all about you! We dig deep after you are booked with a lengthy branding questionnaire and then a 60-minute Shoot List Planning call where we create a detailed shoot list for your shoot so you are fully prepared. As a business owner, you are likely the face of your business and we want to tell the story of who you are and what you do in images. There is a time and a place to put you in a business suit and heels, but if that is not how you show up to client meetings, then we are going lean into that look for you!

02.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! I think it is really important to offer you variety, after all, we are setting you apart from your competition and you can’t do that if you are sitting in the same chair in every image! Just my personal opinion 😉​

From The CEO Experience to Mini Branding Sessions, I have pre-selected and scouted each location and determined that is the perfect fit for my clients. For those of you who know me, you know I’m picky! This means there are several options in each spot for different looks and scenes, I am insistent on giving you a unique style.

03.

YOUR UNIQUE BRAND - From Bakers and Caterers to Business Coaches and Event Planners everyone has branded material and colors and I will capture it all in unique and exciting ways!

Keep in mind we are going to “stage” everything, so if you want to bring a cake to “frost” or even someone to sit in as your client, you will be surprised how much we can accomplish even during a 45-Minute Mini Branding Session

04.

THE DETAILS can easily be overlooked during a photoshoot. Actually the first thing I am going to ask you about on our call are your ‘details’ which will also be your props during our shoot. Details are anything from your branding materials to your computer and iPhone, especially things that include your brand colors. You will even need to think about this for a studio shoot, but don’t worry, you will get a whole list of ideas of what to bring and what to expect.
