Personal Branding Photography

Laura and I met YEARS ago when we were both working for the Huron Playhouse summer stock season of 2011. That’s a mouthful. We slept 15 college students to a room while putting on five shows in seven weeks in the little lake town of Huron, Ohio. For me it was my first paid acting gig and I was over the moon. Needless to say, I remember every face and every second of that summer.

In such a hectic place, Laura was our very necessary stage manager. We began early each day, as we each had duties besides performing (cooking, cleaning, building, administrative, etc.), and our days were long. It was imperative that we had a few stage managers leading the ship, and Laura was one of them. She went on to work in professional theatre in NYC and traveling worldwide with musical tours. She’s done a lot in a short span of her life!

In the wake up the pandemic, she has relocated back to Maryland and has become an Arbonne consultant. She came to me looking for personal branding photography, and we had so much fun planning! Sending photos back and forth, and talking about vibe was part of our process. We settled on meeting in Ellicott City, Maryland with its variety of colorful walls and walkways. As you can see, we jumped around a bunch! We even caught a few seasonal photos outside the decorated shops!

Choosing Outfits

I will start with this: hats are incredible. Her grey hat worked magically against this white wall we found! Actually…to let you in on a secret…that was the back of a church sign. Is that bad? No? Ok, good, thanks. It was just the perfect size so we hopped behind it and caught a few photos.

We were going for the comfy and cozy casual look, with a variety of sweaters paired with jeans. She even wore her favorite necklace with beads of every state she has traveled to! I always tell my clients to wear things of personal significance. When you feel like YOU, you’ll get photos that look like you. AND, it’ll be so much easier to relax into your personal branding photography and have fun!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."
