Who are you?
Hello! I’m Jane of Picture Your Brand, a branding photographer and brand strategist for quiet, camera-shy and introvert business owners who struggle with all the visibility, branding and marketing stuff that usually need you to be a confident extrovert! But you can get in photos and be the face of your business, you can have a brand you love that reflects you, you can make your business work for you. Everything I teach in my membership and courses, and my branding photography, is all to help you show up authentically, stand out confidently, get visible, connect with and convert your ideal customers/clients, and grow a sustainable, successful business – with support, ease and fun.
I am relaxed and friendly, kind, positive, and supportive. There’s no turning up to a shoot with no preparation here – we’ll get to know each other first, making for a much nicer photography session that is more like friends meeting for coffee and a chat. And that helps you relax and shine in your photos too. And I know that telling you not to worry about the photos is easier said than done, but I won’t rush you and although I’ll be taking lots of shots, I’ll be encouraging you and gently guiding and posing you along the way. And making sure we get the images you want and need for your business.
What I’m not, by the way, is loud and bubbly, so if that’s what you need, you might want a different photographer 😉
I’m not sure what exactly you mean by branding photos…
Have a look at my blog: What are branding photos, and do I really need some?
What kind of people or businesses do you photograph?
I have done branding photography for a whole range of businesses so far, from personal trainers and swimming teachers to dress designers, garden designers and website designers, to business coaches, finance coaches and life coaches.
They are usually mums in business, they are busy trying to do everything as well as run their business, and they’re usually not that keen on the idea of being photographed – that’s pretty normal! They often seem to be pet owners, which is great because I love to include the dog or the cat in some of the photos too! They also usually love the outdoors, which is also great because I do too, and am happy to photograph you outside too, in your garden or other favourite location.
I often do branding photos when someone is having a new website made for them, but they can be done at any point in your business journey, whenever you are ready to get some done or update the ones you had some time ago.
But each business is different, each business owner is different, each photography session is different. So your photography session will also be bespoke to you and your business: depending on what you do/sell, depending on the kind of images you need/want, depending on your brand and what suits you.
Do you photograph headshots?
Yes! All branding photography packages include a range of headshots too, that I will take during our time together. Or you can book just a headshot session at my next Headshot Day in Sevenoaks or as a one-off headshot session. See more on those here: Headshot Day.
Do you photograph products too?
Yes! If you make/design/create/sell products, I’m very happy to include them in your branding photography shoot. I love to photograph the ‘business branding’ shots as well as the posed ‘personal branding’ images, so photos of you at work, doing what you do, making what you make etc. So I’m also happy to photograph any products and behind the scenes images as part of your session too, on their own, or with you.
Do you have a studio, or where do you do branding photos?
I don’t have a photography studio. But anyway with branding photos I like to come to a location that we agree on during our initial chat, that suits you and your brand. That will often be your home, as that is where you usually work from, but it can include a local coffee shop (with permission from them), or a local park, or somewhere that means something to you. Or it could be where you work if you have an office somewhere else or use another location for your work if you teach or work somewhere specific. Whatever fits what you do for your business. There are some tips to help you decide on the location in the Academy once you book, and we will discuss where is best.
Do you only do your branding & headshot photos in Sevenoaks?
I tend to work in and around Sevenoaks, depending on the locations that we decide on when we chat, that suit your brand and business and you. I prefer to work within school hours for photo shoots, but I’m happy to travel further if needed! Travel expenses may apply if so; contact me to discuss. For headshots I use the Help Suites Co-Working space for my headshot days or if we need to book somewhere, or I may be able to come to you.
Can you photograph me at an event, working with a client(s), giving a talk or running a workshop etc?
Yes! If you’re out doing something that you would like photographed for your business, then I’d love to come and photograph you there too. You’d just need to book the mini branding session, and I’ll meet you there for an hour or so, capturing lots of images of you doing what you’re doing! (NB If others will be recognisable in the photos, then we’d need their permission first too).
How do we make sure my photos align with my brand?
We’ll have a good chat about your business and what you know, think and feel about your brand, when we first start planning your photography session. I can help if you’re not totally sure what it is all about too – I have resources available that you can access for free in the Academy once you have paid the deposit to book your shoot, including my Create Your Brand Checklist, and my How To Find Your Brand Vibe Workbook.
If you need more than those, if you are starting your brand from scratch or refreshing what you already have, then there are other resources available too, such as my course on supercharging your brand foundations, From Ordinary To Authentic.
Or you could join my membership, The Brand Plan, for loads of brand trainings, resources, support and strategy, either in addition to a one off branding photo shoot, or get membership included as part of my VIP package, The Visibility Plan.
I have no idea what to wear!
Don’t panic! I have some tips for you over in the Academy, that again you’ll get access to once you’ve paid the deposit. And we’ll discuss it when we chat to make sure you’ve got it sorted.
I’m still really nervous about having my photograph taken…
I know how you feel, and me just saying try not to worry about it doesn’t help much does it! But yes, I have made myself practice the other side of the camera too, and I have lots of experience from doing this for years, with helping nervous sitters to relax, feel more comfortable, and even enjoy themselves. Once you book and pay the deposit, I also give you free access to my PDF e-book full of tips to help you feel more confident in front of the camera. And on the day I will always be kind and gentle, and show you how to pose to look your best, so try not to stress about that bit either.
I need lots of new photos!
I have just the thing for you! You need one of my VIP packages, The Visibility Plan or The Visibility Accelerator. You’ll get a full branding photography session to begin with, plus three more mini sessions to be taken throughout the following year, to keep you up to date with loads of images to use. PLUS you get a year’s membership to The Brand Plan included, for lots of brand trainings, resources, support and strategy (either Standard or Elite level).
I love all my photos, can I purchase more?!
Of course you can! Each extra image is £25, or 5 for £100. Add more to your favourites in your gallery and I’ll send an invoice for the additional photos with any balance that is due. Each one comes as a print-ready version and one for using on your website and social media too.
How do I book branding & headshot photos in Sevenoaks with you?
Sign up via the Picture Your Brand Academy and pay the deposit, to give you access to all the planning info in there for you. And if we haven’t had a first planning chat yet or to book in a date, I’ll be in touch to arrange that. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions and to check dates etc.
Contact me if you would like to join The Visibility Plan /Accelerator packages as spaces are limited.

More Info, T&Cs:
All photography sessions include a consultation beforehand to get to know you and your brand, discuss the images you need, and prepare for the photo shoot.
A non-refundable deposit of £250 will be taken to book a branding session and cover planning time. This can be moved to another date if notice is given. The balance is due before the photographs will be supplied. The deposit for a headshot session is £150.00.
Branding photo shoots will take place at a location that suits you and your brand. (Travel expenses beyond west Kent may be an additional cost and will be discussed beforehand).
Headshot photo shoots will take place at Help Suites in Sevenoaks, unless agreed otherwise.
I will shoot mainly in landscape format for website and social media use, with plenty of space to add text if you need, with some in portrait for Pinterest use if required. Plus I can crop to squares or panoramic if required, or anything specific for your website.
You’ll receive a link to an online gallery around a fortnight after the shoot, to choose your final images from.
Once chosen, images will be provided as high and low res, ready for printing and for using online.
Copyright of photos remains with me as the photographer, but your fee includes a commercial licence for you to use the photos for your business, print, reproduce, and publish them.
I do not need to be credited every time you use one in your social media, though occasionally that would be lovely! If several are used on your website, a credit would be appreciated. If you supply them for publishing somewhere, then please let me know where they are used, and ask for a credit to Jane Mucklow or my website Picture Your Brand, or relevant social media account.
Photos are supplied unwatermarked and fully edited, ready for you to use, but I also give you permission to edit them further should you wish, to add text etc.
