Natural Headshot and Personal Brand Photography

You know the days of the boring plain backdrop are over and you’re looking for unique, authentic and natural images that convey your personality, your brand and the story behind your business – what you do, why you do it and how you do it.

Your potential clients want to work with people, not companies.

When they see the person or people behind the business, they automatically feel they know you a little and trust is building before you have even met.

You need a photographer you can trust and who will understand exactly what you need to convey with your images. Whether it’s simply professional headshots to ensure you nail that all-important first impression, or a full suite of personal brand imagery to convey your unique story, look no further!

Hi, I’m Maria, a creative for creatives!

And if you’re a small business owner or entrepreneur based in Dublin or the surrounding areas, that includes you!

Imagine – no more scrambling for social media content, trawling through stock imagery, struggling with awkward selfies and doubting the consistency and quality of your visuals… the pressure to create the right content for your business can be exhausting and overwhelming, I know!

That’s why I’m here to help you!

Together we will create a suite of totally unique, on-brand, storytelling images that you’ll be proud to share, that will help you connect with your ideal client and grow your business… all ready at your fingertips for whenever you need them! So that you can spend more time focusing on doing what you love!

Sounds amazing right?

Tell your brand story and attract your ideal client through authentic and inspiring images!

That’s what I do – but here’s WHY I do it

As a solo-business owner myself, I understand the juggle, the stress and the overwhelm of having to “wear all the hats”, including the time-consuming task of marketing your personal brand on an ongoing basis.

And having the right images play a crucial role in this.

As my knowledge and interest in brand marketing grew over the years, I became passionate about being able to use my craft as a photographer to help other business owners, just like you, to alleviate some of that overwhelm, help you grow your business and give you back the time to spend doing more of what you love.

That’s why in early 2020 I invested in a brand photography mastermind training programme, specifically to learn as much as I could about the genre, so that I could confidently bring this knowledge and expertise to you.

What to expect from your personal brand photography experience

…And here’s the HOW

Your brand goes much deeper than a logo and colour palette, encompassing everything from personality, values, mission, vision etc.

During the preparation and consultation phases of your brand photography experience, I help you to explore and define all of this, as I believe having this clarity is crucial to forming the basis of how we design your shoot – all before I even pick up the camera…

So that on the day, you can relax while I get in to my creative zone – my happy place! But knowing exactly what I need to capture to ensure YOU get the absolute best and most effective suite of images to fully reflect your brand, your vibe, your story and ultimately help you connect with the people you really want to work with!

Just like my family photography, I take a lifestyle approach to my brand photography so the two are completely aligned and you can be confident you will be getting images that are totally natural, authentic and unique to you!

And if you’re anything like me, I know you’ll be worried about stepping in front of the camera… But don’t be! It’s my ongoing mission to ensure that all my clients feel comfortable and at ease during their shoot and even enjoy the experience.

Don’t take it from me. Here’s what one of my past clients had to say (Lisa de Jong Coaching)

“I felt very looked after the whole time and Maria went out of her way to support me in the process as much as possible… The whole experience actually gave me a lot of confidence in my brand and my message through my photos, confidence in my own self-image too”.
