5 ways to make 2023 easier (and generate more cash)

How to get magical brand photos for your business with Laura Summla


Have you been putting off getting brand photos?

Maybe you hate getting your photo taken, or you’re waiting until you feel more confident – and I totally get that.

I remember my first branding shoot well.

It was a week into being full time in my business and it wasn’t exactly my idea of a good time – but you know why I did it?

Because people buy from people. 

And if I wanted people to know, like and trust me (especially just starting out) – I needed to share photos of me.

Stock photos can only get you so far.

And before you say “oh Tahryn, but I hate getting photos of myself taken because I’m not photogenic at all”

I call bullshit on that as does today’s guest on the How I Do Content Podcast.

How to get magical brand photos for your business
