Helping you to create a clear and consistent branding presence online.

Hello friend! I am Joy, a Yorktown, Virginia based personal branding photographer for the creative or corporate entrepreneur. Owning and operating a business is a busy life with many challenges. I truly enjoy helping entrepreneurs with branding and marketing images so that you don’t have to stress about coming up with images to use on your website or marketing materials, or what you’ll use to connect with your audience on social media.

You are in good hands with me because of my educational and creative experience along with my service-oriented approach. The educator in me will guide you through the process and prepare you by helping you discover your brand story. Together we’ll create a customized plan for your session so that you’ll get a beautiful cache of images. I look forward to helping you and to cheering you on in the process!

No. One

I crave authenticity. As a business owner myself, I believe that showing up authentically is vital. Showing up authentically reflects your integrity and trustworthiness and will naturally attract your ideal client. It is always my goal to capture branding images of you that reflect “you” and your unique brand story as well.

No. Two

You’ll see my inner joy bubble out when we meet! I love people. When I have an opportunity to shoot your branding session, you’ll see my excitement. I smile a lot. I am a hugger, too! I love being creative with my camera, of course. But I will absolutely be cheering you on while I photograph you doing what you love and being yourself in front of my camera.

No. Three

Creating relevant imagery means creating imagery that is relatable to your ideal client. It is imagery that illustrates who you are, what you do, why you do what you do, who you serve, and your unique value proposition. Potential clients are human beings who want to connect with you. If they can connect, they will have an opportunity to know you, like you, and trust you.

Three Social Media Post Ideas for Your Business


Branding Sessions

If you are a business owner, you need a personal branding session! Having a clear and consistent brand is vital to building a successful business. According to Seth Godin, brand is “the set of expectations, memories, stories, and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product over another.” Personal branding relates to how consumers view “you”. YOU are your brand. Therefore, using quality personal branding imagery on your website, marketing materials, and on your social media accounts is imperative. It enables you to communicate and illustrate who you are and how you serve so that future clients can connect with you. Let’s team up to elevate your brand.

“highly recommend to any business owner”

“It was a joy to work with Belle Eve Photography! As a REALTOR® my branding is very important so when I decided to schedule a photo branding session with Belle Eve I was a little nervous. Belle Eve has a simple process and questionnaire to help you focus in on your brand and what you need to convey. The photo session was fun and creative and once I saw the finished product I was totally impressed. I look forward to working with Belle Eve photography again soon and would highly recommend to any business owner looking to brand themselves or revive their branding photos. Thank you!”

Fill out the Branding Inquiry Form to start the conversation about your branding photography. I will respond in 24-48 hours and will invite you to share more about your business during a discovery  call.


Discovery Call

During the branding session discovery all, we will dive into your small business to determine your imagery needs and create a customized plan.



Next, I will send you a proposal with the contract along with the invoice. Once you sign the contract and pay the retainer, you’ll officially be booked. The remaining balance will be spread into payments that will be due 30 days prior to each session.


The Session

We’ll work together to schedule the first session, along with deciding on dates for any remaining sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know what kinds of images I will need?

I will guide you through the process by sending you a detailed questionnaire after booking. We will work together to determine what images you need to create a custom gallery for your business.

What types of images will you capture during my personal branding session?

Headshots, lifestyle “a day in the life”, behind the scenes, your workspace, you with your tools of the trade, your products, your favorite hobbies, your favorite items, something that inspires you.

Where should I have my branding session?

Consider a location that complements your brand story and message.

Should I have my hair and makeup done for my branding session?

I highly recommend having your hair and makeup professionally done. Even if you don’t wear a lot of make-up a professional make-up artist can even out skin tone and accentuate your eyes. It will make you feel more confident in front of the camera, and will make your skin glow in your images.

What if I have ideas for my branding session?

I love it when clients have ideas to bring to the table! Let me know about your ideas on the questionnaire after booking. Pinterest inspiration boards welcome!

My business only needs product photography. Do you offer that?

Yes, I do! Let’s hop on a discovery call to chat about your product photography needs.

I really need professional headshots. Will you take headshots during my branding session?

Yes, I can do that. I will capture headshots during your full branding session at your session location in addition to all of the other images I will capture for you. I also have several backdrops for clients who need a formal/traditional headshot.

When will I receive my gallery?

You will receive your gallery via email within 30 days.
