Vancouver Personal Branding Photoshoot Full of Fun and Colour with Christina Louise
Meet Christina, a fellow Personal Branding Photographer
Christina Louise is a Wedding and Personal Branding Photographer based in Edmonton though is up for travel at the drop of a hat!
Christina reached out to me as she was going to be in Vancouver and wanted to do a session here as she adores our city. I mean how could you not?! She was so excited to create content for her business in a city she loves spending time in! It was very sweet of her to ask me to work with her on branding her business and we had a blast getting some super fun photos of her and her camera in some iconic Vancouver locations.
Before starting any shoot, I always like to get to know the person, tapping into the heart and mind behind the brand first. I like to ask clients a bunch of questions so that I can fully understand their story.
Being a Personal Branding Photographer is about so much more than the business. For me, it’s about really getting to know the person, so that I can draw out their personality and love for what they do, which Christina totally radiated in her session. In seeing her images here, wouldn’t you agree?!
Here’s what I learned about Christina.
Christina’s BRAND STORY told through her!
Christina described herself as a photographer who love’s travelling and adventure, is a little sassy, and bossy, and loud (I personally found her so much fun!).
“I speak my mind/honest, huge on being a strong female independent boss and love supporting other women to go after their dreams”.
I can relate to that, Christina!
She also describes herself as spiritual and really into personal development as well. Yet again another thing that she and I have in common. Isn’t it cool when the universe connects you to such amazing humans!?
I also asked her about her brand colours and vibe and her reply: “Modern and a little colourful. Bright yet really clean backgrounds. Grey, white, navy and mustard yellow (gold). Happy. Fun. High quality. Approachable. Confident.”
Personal Branding, infused with personality and the love of travel
Having learned all of the above info, Christina and I set out for a full day of fun at some beautiful Vancouver locations. We went all over Granville Island and I had to use the bright yellow backdrop knowing she loves ‘bright and clean’.
As a fellow chocolate and yummy dessert lover, I wanted to take her to a new place to fall in love with in Vancouver and enjoy a yummy treat, my favourite cafe, the Gluten Free Epicurean.
To take in the beautiful North Shore Mountains as a beautiful backdrop, we also went to the Vancouver Harbourfront by the Vancouver Convention Centre.
We made a point of featuring Christina as a professional but showing that she is real and approachable so that she’d attract her ideal clientele: other fun professionals with a vision of their brand and who understand the importance of top quality images.
I really love creating personality infused stories through photos for entrepreneurs and with Christina, this was a breeze! This is all thanks to her vibrant and fun-loving personality and her very clear vision of who she is and what her brand is. It’s so great when a business owner knows who they are, what they want for their business, and is ready to put it out there to the world to attract their ideal clients and build the life and business of their dreams.
