well hello

i see you’re looking for something…

while i’d love to sing you a song or sew you a dress, i’ve discovered what i’m truly best at is empowring you with tools to capture your brand and be seen.

(and yes, there’s a story behind singing and sewing…ask me sometime…)

But first, let’s get real.

I know we just met and all, but there’s not point in beating around the bush with fancy graphics, shiny objects to click on or me spouting love sonnets about butterflies and rainbows. Let’s get down to biz-nas shall we?

First.

Check yourself: Are you or have you ever made one of these BIG mistakes {click here} when it comes to websites?

Yes? Okay good. You’re in the right place. We’ve all been there. read on…

Second, are you ready to take the next step towards your dreams?

Yeah?

Fabulous. We like dreamers, big goal setters, and those with a passion to share their message and work with the world.

Third, do you want to feel empowered to move forward with your business, to stop feeling bottlenecked by technology, content creation and visual branding, to stop feeling like no one gets you, or sees you, to finally be seen and heard and show up to the world in all of your greatness?

Sound about right?

Amazing.

You see, I’m not here because I love colors and shapes, or web servers and URLs.

I’m  not here because I like clicking the shutter button and staring at people’s faces on the computer screen.

I’m here because I too have a gift to share in this world. I help you be seen. That’s my gift. I love learning about you, what you’re passionate about, what your gifts are…and then it all flows. Ideas and visuals about how I can help bring it all together for you in a beautiful, visual, stunning way.

I get why you’re here.

Web design, logo design and brand photography are not so easy to get right.

There’s a lot out there that just doesn’t work.

I get that you’re frustrated with technology.

I get that you have no clue what your brand should look like.

I get that the last time you had your photo taken was in a dark studio with a bright light and a creepy dude and you don’t like having your photo taken

(yikes, I wouldn’t like that either).

I get that you’re not sure if you can afford it or what to do next.

I get it.

I get you.

And I’m  here to help.

I have 3 core offerings to help you capture your brand and be seen:

Brand photography.

Brand styling (logos and such).

And

Web Design & Development.

And everything in between.

Each offering has a package and service that fits in with your needs and budget.

The Empowered Website Academy

Build A Beautiful Website

The Empowered Website Academy e-Course is for you if…

  • You know that to stand out from the crowd, your website has to be ON POINT. You can’t have a make-shift thrown together site if you’re going to take yourself seriously and really shine as you’re meant.
  • You aren’t in a place right now to hire a web designer and you know that if you could just have someone show you the way you could blow it out of the water.
  • You’ve tried sites or services that are “easy drag ‘n drop” website builders but it’s just not what you’re looking for, doesn’t allow for the customizations that you want or give you the integrations that you need.
  • And now you’re in a place where ultimately, creating a website and launching your business scares the pee out of you {yep I said it} and therefore you’ve just been chillin’.

Brand Styling

(what the heck is that?)

 
 
 

No, I didn’t make up the term, but I’m not sure who did.

Brand styling is more than just designing a logo. I actually don’t do that (but that’s part of it!).

I feel that your logo is more than just text, colors and graphics. It’s an extension of you. And therefore needs a bit more planning and strategy behind it.

My brand styling packages include a unique logo in the necessary formats (vector, pdf, png & jpeg) as well as a color palette with coordinating hex codes, fonts and a style guide showing you how to use and pair your brand style package.

We have two options to get you a brand style that you love, and DIY course for beginners:

Brand Photography

(be seen.)

Not all photography is created equal. It’s true, there are a lot of incredible photographers out there, but have you ever had your photos taken only to get the images back and think that’s not me.

There’s more to photography than getting the correct lighting, exposure, focus and composition.

It’s an energy.

It’s the ability to allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable so that I can capture the real you. When you, your friends, or your clients look at your photo they instantly connect with the real you. The one that has a gift and message to share with the world.

Did you know that on average we see over 5,000 marketing messages per day? Honestly, it’s probably more. Between scrolling Facebook, watching videos, or even just driving down the street, we are bombarded. So how do you get your unique message and voice to the world? Images are our first point of contact. Think about it. Do you even read text, messages or posts without first looking at a profile image? Are you going to open a letter without first inspecting what it looks like?

Like it or not, we make a decision whether we want to engage with others by first looking at an image. Your images on media, print and especially your website need to instantly attract your highest level clients. They need to be able to connect with and get you just by looking at your photos. Then they will decide further to read, opt-in, and engage further with you.

Don’t’ believe me? Check out this episode of Brain Games…

Our brains make a decision about if we can trust someone or not in less than 1/10 … having the right photo can literally make all the difference.

All of my photo sessions include an online gallery of your photos with 10 years of storage, high resolution images with distribution rights, session time and digital images.
