Headshot & Branding Photos in Sweetwater, TX


As a personal brand photographer, I help business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals connect with their ideal audience. Personal brand photography is proven to build followers, attract and onboard ideal clients, and sell products and services.

I understand the needs of business owners because I am one. As a creative entrepreneur, I know the value and importance of imagery that tells unique stories. Consumers intuitively know the difference between stock and custom images, and it’s more important than ever to have eye-catching content.

Custom content will help you stand out against the masses and highlight your unique talents. This means you can get back to focusing on your own creative and entrepreneurial role, grow your business and increase profits — the true reasons why you started this journey in the first place.


During our initial consultation, booking your session is as easy as choosing a mutually convenient date and time, and paying your session retainer. After that, we are ready to go and the fun can begin! We will then finalize all the finer details, including: location, color scheme, models / subjects, wardrobe, props, hair and makeup, and inspiration board.


My services go beyond a "shoot and deliver" mindset. I take the time to get to know you and your business so that the outcome of our photoshoot truly reflects your brand.

No matter which type of session you book, the following services are included:

- Introductory consultation

- Branding questionnaire

- Identification of end goals and image uses

- Photoshoot production: location, color scheme, models / subjects, wardrobe, props, hair and makeup, and inspiration board


I understand individual needs can vary greatly, so I offer several varying packages that begin at $290, and can suit needs of many entrepreneurs and businesses, alike. Whether you need one simple portrait, a few images of yourself or your product, or a day-long photo shoot to capture a combination of all, I am here to help you. Together we will determine what is the best fit for you. If you are working with a web or graphic designer, I am able to coordinate with them ahead of time and make sure the images and motion meet their needs.


Within two weeks of your session, you will return to the studio to view your gallery of lightly edited proof images, or choose a virtual image reveal via Google Meet. The number of final, fully-edited images you receive will depend on the package you purchase — we will identify which package is right for you ahead of time, so you know exactly how many images to choose. After I hand-edit the final images, you will provide me with feedback and identify any changes you'd like. As soon as the final edited images are ready (2-3 weeks), you can download them directly from your online gallery and implement them into your website and marketing.

Full planning assistance, in person wardrobe consultation, private magazine style pro photoshoot with posing guidance and professional retouching included in all sessions.

  • How Long Does A Session Typically Last?

    Portrait Sessions typically last 45-90 minutes. It all depends on your session type, the size of your group, how many outfits you’ve chosen and if you have multiple locations in mind. Mini sessions last 20 minutes and are offered on select days only.

  • How Long Does It Take To Get My Photos?

    Turn around time from “session” to “proof gallery” is 7-10 days. After gallery is delivered, you will have 2 weeks to order prints, digitals, wall art and albums.

  • What Locations Do You Shoot At?

    I primarily shoot in my downtown Sweetwater photography studio but also offer on location sessions. These locations are some fan favorites, though: Lake Sweetwater & Trammel, Newman Park, Downtown (Abilene/Sweetwater/Roscoe), ACU, Texas Tech, Fisher County (Private Property).

  • What If I Need To Reschedule?

    I understand that life happens, whether we want it to or not so my clients can rest assured that if something does come up, you are allowed to reschedule your session within 2 weeks, with no additional fee. If I am unable to shoot your session, you will be notified ASAP and offered the next available date. If you no call no show, you are forfeiting your retainer fee and we will not schedule with you again.

  • How Would You Describe Your Style?

    I love authentic images and raw emotion. I love dark colors and warm, golden sunshine in the fall, and a bright, airy look for Spring/Summer. I seek out genuine moments that you can FEEL. Most photos are lightly posed, meaning I’ll help get you into place first and then encourage interaction and real expressions while we’re shooting. I also love getting those shots of your family interacting, in the in between moments.

  • Do You Release RAW Images?

    Much like chefs do not deliver “raw” food, I do not deliver RAW images. Not only do they require specialized programs to open, what makes my art special is my unique.
