I’ve been working on a ton of personal branding photos here in Colorado lately. There are so many female entrepreneurs popping up and opening their own businesses. It’s honestly my absolute favorite kind of photography to do. I’ve been working with skincare, salons, wellness coaches and now I can add Reign Rituals to my portfolio.
Reign Rituals is a CBD skincare line, run by the beautiful James, pictured here. James is such a badass woman, I am thrilled she chose me to photograph her Denver branding photos. She was so prepared - usually for my clients, I put together a moodboard for our shoot if necessary, but Jamie had one ready for me out the gate. I will say, it can be so nice when someone knows what they are looking for.
Jamie wanted personal branding photos that were non-traditional. No overly stuffy headshot poses, no typical Colorado landscapes. We were able to rent out Ft. Greene, a beautifully decorated victorian-esque bar here in Denver for her location. It was a cool challenge to not be able to scope the lighting before our shoot, as the bar isn’t open early in the morning when we chose to take photos. It worked so perfectly. A pleasant reminder to relinquish some of my control sometimes.
James came with her a-game and we rolled through a lineup of poses I had ready for her until we were completely comfortable working together - laughing, talking about music and she told me about her story of when she moved to Denver. I think I love photographing Denver female entrepreneurs in part, because I identify with them and I feel like I understand what they are looking for more organically than any other type of client. It’s also that I love making new friends though and Jamie definitely became someone I want to hang out with.
