Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for my brand mini session?

Once you've booked your session, you'll receive the mini planning guide. This is a self-guided planner that helps you establish your vision, how to prepare, and what to bring.

What should I wear in my brand photos?

Two tips for this one - one, wear something you'd meet a client in so it matches your personal brand. Two, wear what you feel comfortable in so you can feel your best in front of the camera.

What should I bring to my session?

This will depend on your goals, however, branded materials, your own tech (laptop, tablet, or phone), and small on-brand items are good. General neutral props will be available to use.

Can I download all photos in my gallery?

Yes! You'll receive 15 finished high-resolution images with commercial rights to use how you'd like. Market intentionally with beautiful on-brand photos of yourself!

What if I want more from my session?

Yes! You already know you'll want to put your new content to work. Brand mini clients receive a 10% discount on services provided by Choose Joy Creative and Emily Marcella for Creative Brands.

When will I receive my gallery of images and Reels? 

Finished images and recorded content will be delivered via an online gallery within two weeks of the brand session and all photos in the gallery can be downloaded! 

"Emily did such a great job with my brand photos! She was very good at analyzing my brand style and preparing my for my session. I’m not great at solo photos, but she guided me the whole time and made me feel comfortable. She had great ideas and even helped me with social media post concepts. I’m so in love with how the photos came out! I really think they elevate my social media and overall brand. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for branding photography!"
