My Brand Photoshoot


My brand photoshoot

A few weeks ago, I had brand photos taken with Aly Carroll Photography! If you want to visit Aly’s website go here!

The experience was so fun. After I picked out a few outfits and some props it was go time!

We met at St Kilda, a Des Moines restaurant that serves the most yummy avocado toast, grain bowls, salads and sandwiches. We did a bunch of “working” shots / portraits at that location. I used my computer, a notebook from Russell and Hazel, a book I got in New York back in September, and some other items I had at home.

Afterwords, we went outside to get some more natural light photos. There were some awesome light blue paint spots on the nearby walls to get some different photos on. We moved to a mural downtown that I love, too! The “This must be the place mural” on Court Ave. The black & white has my heart.

Beyond locations and props, the part of the photoshoot that I loved the most was spending time with Aly and feeling assured by her creative direction! Going into the brand photoshoot, I wasn’t sure of any poses or angles that would make for sweet photos so I was slightly hesitant about thinking of those on the spot. But! Aly directed me so well and saw all of these effortless poses and positions that made for stunning compositions! I’m seriously amazed always how she can make anyone look so good with such ease. So, I felt super comfortable and had a blast shooting with her!

The photos themselves are LEGIT. Like, you need to scroll down right now and check them out! I won’t say much more beyond the fact that they are better than I could’ve imagined! I’m so grateful for these, in fact, I placed them on my website the second I received them. They’re SO professional, artistic, high-quality, and timeless.

If you’re considering getting brand photos done, just do it! Don’t hesitate. They’re the best way to update your look and tell your brand story with visuals.

I’d love to hear what you think, leave a comment below!
