Let’s talk Personal Branding and how to get some great images that you can use in a variety of ways.
Kelly Etter is a Pilates teacher with a studio in Altadena. She’s recently partnered with someone else to run an online, virtual Pilates studio and she needed new images for the website. She also needed images and headshots to use for her website, flyers, LinkedIn and social media.
We met to chat about what exactly she needed from her Personal branding session. I always sit down with a client before her session because I find it easier to talk in person than over email. It gives us a chance to get to know each other and brainstorm together. We may go through her closet to get some outfit ideas and decide if she needs to shop for more, and we talk about hair and makeup and how to prepare, how many images she’ll need, and what image she wants to present.
Besides being a Pilates teacher, Kelly loves to dance – she used to be a Rockette! – and she takes power walks around her neighborhood and loves to be outdoors. She wanted to come across as friendly and relatable, and we wanted to highlight different facets of her personality.
Kelly’s studio has a beautiful deck. When the weather is nice, she can hold classes outside, and I knew we could get some great images of the space. It was also important to see her in action, so she spoke to a couple of her clients and they agreed to be models.
We had a great time and got some images that she can use in a variety of ways.
If you’re interested in Pilates, email Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or connect with her on Kelly’s Facebook. She’s very nice, really knows her stuff, and her clients love and rave about her.

This is Lilly Warriner, an actress who has relocated from New York City.
Some people are very good at Facebook – you know the ones I mean. When their posts come through your feed they always make you laugh. Lilly is one of those people. Please, someone put her in a big budget movie because she is fabulous.
Elyse is an artist and wanted some updated portraits. Most of us need flattering portraits for social media. If we own small businesses, we also need them for our websites, LinkedIn and promotional materials. And who doesn’t like a beautiful portrait of themselves?
