Personal Branding Portraits

Houston portrait photographer, Michael Carr, offers contemporary business portraits and personal branding portraits. Personal branding portraits include professional images that represent individuals and can be used on company websites, business web pages and social media profiles.

What is a Personal Branding Portrait?

This type of photography is different than a classic headshot because it encompasses more than just head and shoulders—it showcases the personality and uniqueness of you and can be done either in a studio or on location. By having these portraits in your marketing tool box, you can easily update your bio photo and also add key images to help market your brand. With a personal branding session, most clients find they select upwards of 15 – 20 favorite final images.

What does these mean for you from a marketing standpoint? Your marketing images are taken care of for the next year!

I do not like having my portrait taken. Can you help?

We hear this phrase very often and we specialize in photographing people that do not like having their portrait taken!

What type of clothing do I bring?

We will consult with you on your attire for your contemporary personal branding business portrait. A good rule of thumb is to stick to timeless and classic clothing that you feel confident in. Formfitting outfits tend to be more flattering than loose or baggy clothing.

We always recommend that clients bring with them several outfits to choose from; think 6 or so looks. We can look at your wardrobe with you and select the best outfit for your portraits. Solid colored clothing is always best for a portrait.

For men, you can add a pop of color with a tie or a pocket square.  For the ladies a colored shell is an option with jewelry as an accent to the overall portrait. We have clothing tips on our site here .

For 3/4 length portraits we recommend that you try on your clothes and make sure they fit properly before your session. If your clothes do not fit well, or if they are snug, it will show in your portrait. Make sure you are confident in the attire you select and that all clothing is pressed.
