Planning For A Successful Business Photoshoot: My Secrets Revealed

When it comes to business expenses, professional photography should be at the top of your list. Yep, for real. Investing in gorgeous pictures to elevate your biz is a #nobrainer. The world is visual. It's obvious that in the digital age, your business will need great visual content to be successful.

I know that when you're first starting your biz it can quickly feel like you're spending more money than your little business is bringing in. But professional photos are SO worth it in the long run – trust me, lovely.

Now, if the idea of jumping in front of the camera is already making you a nervous wreck, relax! I've got you covered with several actionable secrets to help you eliminate the jitters and plan a successful photoshoot ahead of time.


It's just me and you for this episode, girlfriend! I just recently had a photoshoot done for myself and MWH with the crazy talented Jade Warne of @Hipster_Mum. My amazing experience with this photoshoot inspired this episode. Seriously, she's a #TotalWeapon.

Today I'm going to share my secrets on how to prep for a business photoshoot, so you feel excited and empowered to get your own pictures done with confidence.

  • For styling, I worked with the ladies from Designer Style List! They totally nailed and curated very on point looks complete with accessories for my shoot.

The more you prep for your photoshoot, the better it will be. You will be able to communicate your brand story to your audience in a very visually striking, absolutely magnetic way. – Tracy Harris
