Embrace the Future: Practice Forward-Thinking Routines To Transform Your Business & Brand Photos

In the fast-paced world of business, the ability to anticipate change and adapt is not just a skill; it's a necessity. It's also really freakin' hard. As entrepreneurs and creators, we constantly strive to stay ahead of the curve, to innovate, and to evolve. This forward-thinking mindset isn't just about predicting trends; it's about actively shaping the future of our business and growth. But like, I want to live in the moment too...gah!

I want to share with you a journey—one that intertwines the essence of forward thinking in both business strategy and branding. It's a mini story of fear of the unknown, of embracing change, and of the transformative power of visionary action.

When I first embarked on my entrepreneurial journey in 2009, I was filled with passion and dreams, but I lacked a clear roadmap. However, one thing I was certain of from the beginning was the importance of brand identity. Now it doesn't mean I HAD IT, I just understood that the way my business was perceived visually & emotionally could make or break its success. So, I made a commitment to just show up as I was on social media, in the community, at events... you get the picture, yet never really invested in professional brand photos for myself. Fast forward to 2023 when Missy Jones Photography had some new life breathed into it.

I set out to find a photographer who shared my vision, someone who understood that these images weren't just funsies, but a way to share my heart, warmth, branding tone, voice, colors... It wasn't just about capturing what was; it was about envisioning what could be. I sought out someone who would not only accept my ideas but also enhance them, pushing me to think beyond the conventional and embrace the innovative, in SIMPLE ways so we worked smarter and not harder. I'm so grateful for Elisabeth Eden photographing me and I can't wait to book round two.

Here's the deal, when you find the right photographer, you don't just discuss poses and clothes; you dive into the soul of your brand. You explore its essence, its values, and its aspirations. Together, you craft a visual narrative that not only represented where your business stands today but also where it will head tomorrow. I can't possibly photograph everyone, and I am NOT FOR EVERYONE but I urge you to think deeper than just booking photos, think about the next steps in your business.

On the day of the photo shoot, I didn't just show up; I arrived with a mindset of purpose and possibility. I embraced each moment with intention, knowing that these images would serve as beacons guiding my business forward when I launched my new website, branding guide, clothing guide, email, social posts, interactions. And when I saw the final results, I was filled with a sense of joy and excitement, knowing that they captured not just who I was but who I was becoming.

I've started to cultivate a deeper understanding of the intricate dance between strategy and aesthetics, recognizing that the visual representation of a brand is not just a reflection of its present state but a beacon guiding its future evolution. It's a feeling...

So, as you embark on your own journey of forward thinking and brand development, I encourage you to consider the power of visual storytelling. Imagine the impact of a cohesive brand identity that not only captures the essence of who you are but also illuminates the path to where you're going. Picture the possibilities that await when you set clear boundaries, and embrace the transformative journey of building a brand that stands the test of time.

Reach out, I'd love to chat! If it's not the right time or fit, I'll openly acknowledge it and honor whatever next steps we take! Shoot me an email here!
