You are worthy!

Many potential clients look at social media and websites like this to research images in order to find photographers to work with, but looking also proves to be discouraging to people who think they are not the model type. Therefore, getting to know your photographer by contacting them is a necessary step in easing concerns. The best image I could ever take is the one that best represents you!

What makes my branding photography unique? ...

How strong is your brand presence?

 

Entrepreneurs! Are you busy working to create a successful business as well as trying to stay current with your social media presence, but not attracting the right audience? 
 
Delegating some of the work will help you maximize your time with someone that will help you figure out the right images to attract your audience. 
 
As a personal branding photographer I’ve partnered with Reframe Your Brand to help you hone in on the right type of images that speak to your audience. That is what sets me apart! My branding photoshoots are not a “show up and shoot” scenario. I put each of my clients through a short process where I help them figure out their own unique audience. If you want to take your branding and business even further using the images we take, consider joining the Reframe Tribe. https://www.reframeyourbiz.com

“If you want to stand out from the crowd. Give people a reason not to forget you.”

Storytelling is an art. I help you create the images that tell the story you would like to convey. The possibilities are endless but can also be overwhelming. My goal is to help you see your vision and align it with what I see. We work together from planning to execution. The best way to find the right photographer is to figure out if their style will match yours. Whether it is something creative for yourself or something creative for your business, I can help you create the perfect photos that meet your needs.

Hi, i'm sharon, your photographer

I got into photography through the encouragement and mentorship of Brett Seeley, a fantastic fitness photographer. Since then I developed a style of my own that centers around each unique circumstance of each individual person. I think that is why there is a lot of variety in what I do. As a bodybuilding competitor I started off working with clients in the fitness industry. That lead me to further help a lot of those entrepreneurs continue to create content for their brands which led me to offering branded imagery for all types of businesses. I’m also an entrepreneur and artist at heart. I use what I know in marketing my own business to help my clients in theirs. We all level up together. The artist in me cannot stop creating. My passion is creating ideas for people and seeing it through to its visual representation. Most of my work is not a happy accident. It has been planned and thought out either through an actual mood board or simply ruminating in my head. 

I prefer to work with clients that are engaged and excited about the process, their self expression or their business. When you book me, you are not only paying for the service time to shoot and edit, but for the “headspace” time that it takes to come up with my ideas. Plus it is mandatory to have fun. 😉

 

Last Thing: Early in my career I was in the corporate world. I then became a wife and stay at home mom. I got this idea that I wanted to compete in bodybuilding, trained and got my IFBB Pro Card. Someone suggested photography then I became that. I wanted to start into the e-commerce business and started also doing that. Point is: You can really do the things you put your mind too! What you see in your mind becomes your reality. You just need to get out of your own way! I believe in you…

Frequently Asked Questions

You are not allowed to edit images in all circumstances except one. My content and branding clients get a special exception to this rule. Because the images are for their business and social feeds, they are allowed to place their own filters on their photos which are often given unedited. 

Depending on what type of photoshoot you do (boudoir, branding, fitness, fashion, standard or creative portrait), you will receive a gallery of images. Through the gallery you are able to download directly images you decide to purchase, request further editing or request printing. Payment can also be made directly through the gallery or through Venmo. 

Galleries of your images are usually delivered within 5 days after the photoshoot. Further edits will be done up to 2 weeks after the initial edit request. Images will be delivered digitally or can be printed. Expect prints to be sent out within a week of request. 

In most cases except for a boudoir shoot you may bring someone else to the photoshoot. But beware, I may have them work (holding lights, positioning the fan or flipping fabric ) while they are there. While the environment will definitely be fun, friendly, and positive, we are in the business of image creation. Anyone that interferes with our goals may be asked to step away. 

If in doubt, bring it all. Having a lot to choose from is never a bad thing for me. I like choices! You may not wear all of it or any of it but if you don’t bring it, it will definitely not get shot. Make sure shoes are clean. Dirty shoes take forever to photoshop and you will be spending more on the post process. 

10 Things to Consider When Planning for a Fitness Photoshoot 

  1. Start planning for it days before. Schedule hair, makeup, tanning if needed.
  2. If you are tanning, tanning needs to be even and not blotchy. The more blotches, the more money you will spend on post production work. 
  3. Plan outfits ahead of time. Throwing a bunch of clothes in a bag 20 minutes before you leave and hoping for the best does not guarantee you will get the images you wanted. 
  4. Clothing and shoes should be clean and wrinkle free as possible. 
  5. Shave or wax a few days prior so your skin does not look irritated and red during the photoshoot.
  6. Finger nails and toe nails need to be manicured. 
  7. Exfoliate and moisturize your face the day before so that makeup goes on more smoothly and your face looks fresh.
  8. Get lots of sleep the night before. The tired look does not photograph well on anyone.
  9. The day of your photoshoot please arrive on time. Being late may mean taking away from the agreed shoot time which means less looks and images you will have.
  10. Relax and enjoy the process. The photographer will guide your posing, the more relaxed you are the more natural and less stiff you will look in the images. 

I’m not like many photographers in that I’m pretty generous when it comes to cancelations. I know it’s not very good business practice to not require deposits but so far I’ve been blessed with great clients that are respectful of my time. Please inform me of any cancelation or rescheduling as soon as you can. I totally understand that life happens, but if you are one of those people that continually cancel, then obviously the photoshoot with me is not your priority so I would encourage you to find a photographer that will be more of a priority to you. This can change depending on how many times I get burned in the future but so far so good. 

I turned my 5 car garage into a completely finished home studio. This allows me to keep prices low and get as creative and messy as I want. But I’m also open to shooting in lots of different settings on location. As long as the location is within the Denver metro area, so far, I’ve not charged travel fees. If clients would like to have it at a certain location like another studio, a hotel room, or specific rental space, I’m happy to shoot there, but just know, that the client is responsible for securing and paying for that location.
