Small Business & Personal Brand

Your brand is your business story! And it's so important to beautifully share your story with your audience and your clients! To show them what your business is all about without having to tell them.

Portraits, on the job images, product photos, your personal story, it can all be a part of your brand and your brand photography!

I'd love to tell your business story with beautiful images that show off your amazing personality, your stunning products, your gorgeous business space, your sweet family, and anything else that will help you speak to your clients!

Who is brand photography for?

Personal or small business brand photography is for so many different people. Entrepreneurs and solopreneurs who own their own businesses and can benefit from a consistent business brand and from photos that help sell their business and their story.  With the internet being the first step in making buying decisions most professionals' first impression is not always in person.

​​​What is the benefit of branding sessions?

You probably didn't get into business to spend a ton of time documenting your life, your process, or your story via photography.  You started your business to do what you're passionate about. In this visual world we live in, beautiful photos are essential to tell your clients why they should choose you, what makes your business unique and how you can benefit them. So instead of spending time when your heart isn't in it, let me take care of the photography for you, because it's what I love to do.

These photos will be uniquely yours and will help you to showcase your professional self. Professional photos tailored to your story will allow you to speak to your ideal clients and stand out from the rest. You don't want stock images that are being used by everyone and can hurt your online presence, authenticity and SEO and you don't want to spend endless hours trying to get good images by yourself. Instead you can invest and get some amazing ones! Branding photography positions you to clearly communicate your brand, your strengths and your benefits to your audience.

Unlike a simple portrait session with branding photography you get a plan to tell your business story, with a professional that understands branding, business, and photography.

Nobody wants to spend time stressing out about what they're going to post to Facebook or Instagram next, or what photos belong on their website, or what to submit to the newspaper when there's an article or press release about you, or what to print on your catalogue! Business is stressful enough and branding photography sessions provide you with enough photos to cover all these situations, tell your story and help others really connect with you.


You can strategically create a set of images that will help you tell your story and grow your business!

"If you need any pictures taken, you should seriously check her out. She's done all of the professional pictures that our family has had taken for the past several years..." - Nathan

What can I do with the photos?

Whatever you need! All business and branding sessions come with a full use and print release on the photos. They can be used to create your online, print and advertising brand!


Social Media

Marketing Materials


Press Releases

Prints for your space


Anything else you can think of!

I want you to be able to use these photos to make your brand more robust, more vibrant and more you!


Feel free to put your logos on them, add text, share them with your team if you have a designer, social media professional or marketing expert. Use these images in whatever way will help you grow your brand!

So why KatFour Photo?

Because you want to feel comfortable and you want a photographer you can trust! I really focus on getting to know you, rather than focusing on just one specific type of photography. I'll be there to help you plan and execute great photos that really reflect who you are.

On top of it all, I know what it takes! I'm a marketer, a small business owner, and a photographer, so I really get it. It takes work to understand how to brand and market a business, and I can help by focusing on what you do, how you do it and who you are, and making sure your photos really communicate that for you!

"Kat is incredibly accommodating. My outdoor branding session was greeted with pouring rain. Kat suggested her indoor studio, despite it being brand new and unfinished. We met and she quickly moved a few things around, set up her equipment, and made me feel confident. She was specific, encouraging, and helpful in suggesting poses that worked best for my style. Her turnaround time is also incredible. I also want to mention that I asked her to alter her editing style dramatically from the work she normally produces, and she did so without question, with ease, and provided beautifully branded images. Thank you so much, Kat! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!..." - Katie

What is a brand photography session like?

It's tailored to your needs, your business and your story.


  1. I'll send you a questionnaire so you can tell me all about you and your business, your goals, your favorite colors, and anything else you think I should know.

  2. Then we schedule a consultation to talk about what your professional needs are, what types of photos will really benefit your story, what shows off your style and what makes you feel most comfortable. We can talk about what story you want to tell, what to wear, where to have the session, how to structure the photos, whether you'll want to bring friends or family with you, and anything else that will help make your session experience positive and rewarding. If you're unsure, I'll help walk you through the process and help make this easier.

  3. We'll work through what you need, your package, your ideal locations, your props and get everything scheduled!

  4. I'll send over a digital contract for you to sign.  This document protects both of us and lists out everything you get with the package or session you selected.

  5. We'll have the session! This is the fun part, where you get to do what you do best and I get to capture in beautiful photos.  We'll go to the places we discussed and bring the stories to life, and I'll make sure you're comfortable and have input on the entire process!

  6. All the images get edited, in color and black and white and uploaded to a beautiful online gallery.  I'll sort them for easy use and send you the link. No watermarks, no extra charges.


I'll work with you to create a unique experience, at a location that will fit your brand and creative photos that can be more structured or more lifestyle.

"Kat was extremely professional and prompt with communication. She offered many suggestions during our photo shoot. Kat was very patient and interacted very well with our 5 year old son. That for us was the deal breaker. I highly recommend her services..." - David
