If there’s anything I love more than supporting small businesses here in Chattanooga, it’s documenting those small businesses. Killer brand photography has the power to transform your business’s virtual presence and show your brand in its best light.

HOW I DO SMALL BUSINESS PHOTOGRAPHY
I love the story of entrepreneurship, and more than that, I love that it’s so different for every small business I work with. When we work together, I focus on the story of your business. I want to capture a day in the life of your team – whether you’re baking bread, cleaning teeth, or shuffling papers. I want to capture the spirit of your team, your space, and your brand.
With all small business shoots, my goal is to give you as much variety as possible in your images. After our session, you’ll have a brand new batch of photos for your social media, website, advertisements, media spots, you name it!
If you’ve got a wild idea for your brand photos, just let me know. I’m down for anything!
DOCUMENTING YOUR PROCESS
I love acting like a fly on the wall and capturing a day in the life of your business. I’m confident that any business can have great process photos (yes, even if you work on a computer all day), but it’s especially powerful for hands-on businesses like bakers, makers, and artists.
Bread and Butter was kind enough to let me creep around their bakery with my camera for a few hours while they went about their day. I got to take in all the delicious smells while documenting the bread-making process from start to finish. I love the way these images turned out: the colors, the textures, the steam! Now, they have tons of photos to use on their refreshed website.
With Range Projects, it definitely helped that their process is so visually interesting. Their materials and the sparks created such interesting colors and lines, and I loved getting to capture their diverse team in their zone.
HEADSHOTS & TEAM PHOTOS
Your team is the heart and soul of your business. During a small business photo session, I’ll get a good mix of headshots and photos of your team in action.
When I worked with Southside Dental Arts, I wanted to be sure to capture the warmth and care that all their team members bring to the space. These doctors have actually worked on my teeth before, so I know firsthand how awesome they are. I really think their personalities shine through in these photos.
It had been a long time since Farinash & Stofan Law Firm refreshed their website, and all their old headshots were out of date. They brought me in for a few hours to get new shots of the team in their beautiful office. We even walked over to a nearby parking garage to get a shot of the office from the outside.
WorkHound is a logistical team here in Chattanooga, and they’re a great example of a tech-heavy company that still got great team photos. Yes, they work behind screens for a good part of the day, but these images still show off their personalities and workspace.
STUDIO & OFFICE PHOTOS
So many small businesses here in Chattanooga have gorgeous office spaces. I especially like documenting artists’ studios. I think your workspace speaks volumes for your personality and style.
When Molly Wright reached out for photos, her main goal was spicing up her social media presence. Before, she only posted photos of her art. After our session, she had tons of photos of herself to pepper into her feed and a killer new headshot featuring her work.
For Kate Roebuck‘s session, we focused heavily on her relationship with her studio space. I made sure to give her a wide variety of shots with plenty of empty space. That way, she can pop in some text and use them for posters, online ads, and website fillers.
DETAIL & PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY
If you sell a physical product, stunning product photography is a must. Marithyme Seafood Company, a wild-caught salmon and seafood delivery service, needed stylish, super detailed shots of their product to show its quality. We set up in the owner Thomas’s parents’ gorgeous kitchen, got tons of close-ups of the marbled meat, and documented the cooking process. Now, those photos live on their website and help them sell their delicious seafood across the country.
For Bloom CBD, we wanted to showcase the product both on its own and in use. We found this super stylized, funky space, brought in a couple models, and got tons of insanely awesome shots.
Kate at Harper Event Company is a wedding planner. While she doesn’t deliver a product, she does design stunning spaces for her weddings. She brought me in for a couple hours before one of her weddings to document all the little details she’d spent so much time on. Plus, I got some shots of her doing what she does best: keeping everybody organized and stress-free on a wedding day.
