Building your personal brand as a solopreneur or small business owner, can set yourself apart from the competition and  help you stand out in your industry.  Your brand affects how people perceive your business, connects you with your ideal clients, and improves your customer’s experience with you. So, in today’s business world your key marketing strategy is in building your personal brand, and that means YOU!

Okay, that was alot of You, Your and You! LOL. So let’s get to it… how do you go about defining your personal brand? Well if you could only do ONE thing to improve how people view your brand, it should be with a professional portrait session. Not anything like those stuffy corporate headshots where they sit you on a stool, in front of a plain gray backdrop, and have you cross your arms! Instead, you want a personal branding portrait session that is customized to highlight your business, product or service that tells your brand’s story.
