Commercial Banker Branding Session

This branding session was so much fun as Katie’s fun and bubbly personality flowed through all of the poses, locations, and photos. Katie is a Commercial Banker and Business Development Officer for Bank Midwest. She loves helping people navigate their business by advising them toward their business goals. She absolutely lights up meeting new people and assisting her clients wherever she can.

It’s easy to see why Katie has excelled at her job – she is an absolute light to be around! We started the session with me hyping her up (it’s my job, after all), but ended with her hyping me up, telling me all her clients needed a session like this. I won’t lie, I tend to agree 😉

For Katie’s branding session, we captured her working, prepping for meetings, out to drinks with a client, and highlighting her killer personality. We captured the majority of her photos in a private home (I love shooting in spaces like this for a more lifestyle feel!), and also stopped at The Carpenter Bar towards the end of our time together.

Katie writes a lot of articles on LinkedIn, so in addition to photos of her in a lifestyle environment and working, she also needed some branded stock photos. We captured some with a lightbulb (to show ‘ideas’), a clock (to represent time), a rotary phone (so she could write about sales calls), and a Magic 8 ball (to highlight seeking advice in business).

It was a great session, and I can’t wait to see how Katie uses her photos!
