I love hearing from you guys.

did you say mail?!

To prepare for your Personal Branding Session, we will need at least 3 weeks to plan.

how far out can i book?

Once we have a scheduled shoot and your session contract is signed,  I will be sending you my PDF on preparing for your shoot with me.  Wardrobe, location, props, website colors etc.

how do i know what to wear?! 

You do!  With each jpeg digital file from one of my collections, you receive a large digital jpeg file and the matching web size jpeg digital file.  PLUS they are retouched as well.

Do i receive large jpeg digital files?

Of course!  I recommend adding your  Team Members to the photo session.  Especially if they will be part of YOUR first impression for YOUR clients.
There is an additional charge per person.

Can my business partner and staff be photographed too?

I do!  I offer Payment Plans for my Collections over $2000

do you take payment plans?

I do!  I love starting my sessions at my studio for makeup & hair styling and photographing headshots, props and group shots.  After we finish those shots we travel to your work space or other locations.

do you travel to my work space?

My photo studio is located in Barnardsville, NC (full time) serving Charlotte and Asheville surrounding areas.
I am also in Moorestown, NJ every other month for 6 days.  Please email me for those dates to book with me when I am there.

where are you located?

I started out photographing EVERYONE who needed a HEADSHOT.  My Headshot Company name is Mary Queen of Headshots Photography.  I started to see that business Owners needed more then just a headshot.

how did you get started as a Branding Photographer?
