We had an opportunity to do a branding session at Envision More Veterinary Ophthalmology. Dr. Griggs is a veterinary ophthalmologist based in Cypress, Texas. She and her team are dedicated to providing high-quality eye care for pets. Dr. Griggs has built a reputation for her expertise, compassion, and dedication to her patients. Moreover, as a business owner, she understands the importance of branding and marketing to attract new clients and grow her practice.
That's where Enjoy the Moment Portraits, LLC comes in. Our professional branding photography service creates high-quality business branding images. During the consultation, Dr. Griggs sought to showcase her practice and connect with potential clients and the community. She was also looking for individual headshots to use on her website. We discussed the whole process during the consultation beforehand. So that it gets easy and smooth during the shooting day, she blocked out the entire day for us. At the beginning of the day, our hair and makeup artist started to prep our client. In the meantime, we took a few outside photographs of the main buildings, got drone footage, and took many shots inside the primary office.
The branding photographs we created featured the office environment, which is friendly and warm, and highlighted the state-of-the-art equipment and technology that Envision More uses to provide top-notch care. The office headshots were pleasant and straightforward. The rest of the images were vibrant, engaging, and visually compelling, capturing the essence of her practice. Almost everyone on the team had their best friends with them, and I sure had fun taking the headshots with their pets.
But the impact of these branding photographs didn't stop there. Envision More can use the images in various marketing materials, including flyers, brochures, and advertisements. Moreover, one of the most important uses of the images was in the Community Impact Newspaper. The newspaper is a popular source of news and information in Cypress and the surrounding areas, and it reaches a broad audience of potential clients. The community impact newspaper featured an article about Dr. Griggs and her practice, and the branding photographs created by Enjoy the Moment Portraits, LLC. The photographs helped to make the article visually engaging and memorable, and they helped to draw attention to Dr. Griggs' expertise and dedication to her service. We have put together a video for Envision More Veterinary Ophthalmologist.
We at Enjoy the Moment Portraits, LLC demonstrate the value of high-quality branding images for businesses, highlighting the importance of investing in marketing and branding to grow a successful practice. We can create images for you that are visually compelling, engaging, and memorable, and they can be valuable tools in a business's marketing efforts.
As we enter the new quarter, it's time to start thinking about how to level up in various aspects of our lives. Whether in our careers, personal relationships, or hobbies, there's always room for growth and improvement. Updating your headshots is one way to take your brand to the next level.
Headshots are an essential component of your personal brand. They are the first thing potential employers, clients, or collaborators will see, and they play a significant role in shaping people's perceptions of you. A high-quality headshot can help you stand out from the crowd and showcase your professionalism and confidence. So, if you last updated your headshot a while ago, now is the perfect time to do so.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider updating your headshots in 2023:
Stay current: Headshot styles and trends can change quickly, and what was in fashion a few years ago may not be relevant anymore. By updating your headshots, you can ensure that your photos are up-to-date and in line with current trends.
Show your growth: If you've made significant progress in your career or personal life, it's essential to showcase that growth in your headshots. Your new photos can highlight your accomplishments and demonstrate how far you've come since your last headshots/photographs, whether on the website or social media profile.
Improve your brand: Your headshots are a crucial part of your brand, and they can significantly impact how others perceive you. A professional, high-quality headshot can help you effectively convey your brand message and attract the right opportunities.
So, how can you level up your headshots in 2023? Here are a few tips to get you started:
Hire a professional photographer: While smartphone cameras have come a long way, nothing beats a professional photo session. A professional photographer will have the equipment and expertise to capture high-quality photos that showcase your best features.
Choose a location that reflects your brand: The location of your photo session can significantly impact the final result. Choose a location that reflects your brand and personality. For example, a colorful and vibrant background might be appropriate if you work in a creative field. On the other hand, if you work in a more formal industry, a more neutral backdrop might be a better choice.
Dress to impress: Your outfit can make a big difference in your photos. Choose clothing that fits well and reflects your brand. Avoid patterns or colors that are too distracting, and opt for something timeless and classic.
Updating your headshots can be a simple but effective way to level up in 2023. By choosing a professional photographer, selecting the right location, and dressing to impress, you can create a set of headshots that will help you stand out from the crowd and showcase your brand in the best possible light.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Damon Paull, a wealth management advisor who needed an updated headshot for his work. From the moment we met, I could tell that Damon would be a great client. He was friendly and professional and had a clear vision of what he wanted to achieve with his headshot.
Our priority was ensuring that Damon was ready and comfortable in front of the camera and with the lighting system. We took the time to discuss the styling and backdrop options beforehand during the consultation. Once we had everything in place, our makeup artist got to work on taking care of Damon's skin prep for the session. She did a fabulous job, and Damon looked great on camera. After that, I walked him through the setup and adjusted everything to his liking.
We had various poses and angles to choose from and many favorites. As we began the photoshoot, I was impressed with Damon's ability to take direction and nail every pose. It was clear that he had done his homework and had a good understanding of how he wanted to present himself in his headshot.
Overall, it was a great pleasure working with Damon Paull. He was a true professional and made our job easy. We captured some fantastic shots, and I doubt that his updated headshot will serve him well in his work as a financial advisor. I wish him all the best and look forward to working with him again.
