What's a Story?
We photograph our clients by interpreting their unique stories. A story is a series of images that tells one facet of your brand story, such as a client meeting, behind the scenes of you at work, spending time with your family or enjoying a hobby on the weekend. It’s showing you doing what you do either at work or in your personal life, so your clients understand who you are and what it looks like to work with you. Research has determined that clients trust you more when they feel you are authentic and they catch a glimpse of your real self.
