Got questions?

"I'm a business owner - I don't have a personal brand...do I?"

A personal brand is how you are perceived in your community and in your field. You could just call it your reputation! Every business owner already has a personal brand, even if you haven’t put much thought into it. Thinking about your personal brand can feel awkward or even vain at first, but when you realize how much your personality can drive relationship building with your audience, you’ll be glad you invested!  Finding the best photographer in Tampa for your specific brand needs will make the whole process of taking your brand to the next level easier.

"Maybe I just need a headshot."

I would love to create a headshot for you! You would likely benefit from having a complete gallery of on-brand images featuring you, your team, your products, your workstyle, and telling your story. But if you’re not ready for all that just yet, check out my Quickie Headshot.

"Do you do product photography?"

Creating content including product photos, videos for Reels and TikTok, and stop-motion videos is one of my favorite things to do!  Contact me and tell me more about your products so we can start planning a project perfect for your brand.  The best photographer for your Tampa based product business will be the one who understands your brand, your customer base, and your product vision.

"What should I wear or bring to my photography session?"

First, when you book me to create personal branding or product photography for you, we’ll start the project with a planning meeting.  Then, we’ll plan out the details of your session including locations, props, sets, and what you should bring.  You may also choose to add on professional wardrobe styling or hair and makeup services to your session.  Letting someone else guide you through the process of choosing outfits and getting ready for your session makes a world of difference.

"Will you photograph my family, my baby, my high school senior, or my wedding?"

I specialize in personal branding photography and product photography – anything outside that is not my area of expertise.  My whole attention is focused on your business!  However, if your family is an integral part of your business, they are more than welcome to be included in your branding photos.

"Before I get a quote, what is an average price range I can expect?"

My personal branding photography and product photography sessions are completely customized to each project and business I serve. In other words, giving general pricing is tricky! But most of my clients spend between $1600 and $8000 on their total project. Deliverables and exact services varying depending on need.   After your first personal branding photography or content creation session with me, I can create sessions for you on a monthly or quarterly basis..  Additionally, my Quickie Headshots are perfect for anyone seeking something more impactful than a basic headshot, but still sticking to a budget.  Finding the best photographer in Tampa means balancing your vision, the artist’s abilities, and your marketing budget.

Behind the Lens

When I’m not working with my amazing clients, I’m living my best life in Tampa with my husband, Peter, our cat, Biscuit, and our dog, Miles. You can find me thrift shopping, exploring new cities, and riding my bike.

My biggest passion beyond work is volunteerism. There are so many fantastic non-profit organizations in my community, and I try to get involved as much as possible!  In 2023, I served on the Fort Myers Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board.  Getting involved with the Neighborhood Accountability Board and serving as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors for Love Your Rebellion helps me stay connected with my community.  You can also catch me working the polls on pretty much any election day!

Award Winning Photographer

There’s something truly humbling about winning awards – but it’s also a total ego boost!

In 2022, I was honored to be recognized as a 40 Under 40 honoree by Gulfshore Business, won a Gold ADDY at the American Advertising Awards, and was voted the best photographer in Southwest Florida (Lee County) by Gulfshore Life readers.

Last year, I was recognized as a finalist for the Diversity in Business award by the Horizon Foundation.
