Confident, calming, bold? What comes to mind when you see a brand owner’s image? You’ll associate the feelings you experience with the personality of the brand itself. K. Marie is here to teach you how to produce compelling visual narratives that convey the true personality of your client’s brand and the person (or people!) behind it. She’ll give you a behind the scenes look at a personal branding session, teach you how to build trust and connection with your client so that you can tell her most authentic story through imagery, and provide guidance on everything from prepping the client to preparing for the session to developing your own approach to this genre of photography.
