Inspired Photography Branding – Fresh

I’m really loving today’s Inspired Branding! I think I actually have started every ‘Inspired Branding’ post that way? Hmmm. Maybe if I said it differently… Where’s the thesaurus?  Okay, found it…

I really adore today’s ‘Inspired Branding’….. nah. I’m passionate about today’s ‘Inspired Branding’ …. no. I’m besotted with today’s ‘Inspired Branding’… that’s the one! Okay,  so I’m besotted with today’s ‘Inspired Branding’. The colors, the happy feeling I get, the desire it leaves me to eat a papaya. It’s happy and contemporary without being too kid-ish.

The Chair comes from Layla Grace and was just too much fun not to use. It immediately got my creativity flowing and gave me an excuse to finally use the Paper Source Nesting Suitcases that I thought would be so awesome for presenting albums and such in! This style has a great eclectic feel which I’m totally diggin’ for these colors. This would be fantastic for a contemporary photographer and I think Seniors would especially appreciate the vibe!

For those who don’t know how ‘Inspired Branding’ works… I take something … anything that grabs me and I build a brand around it. I like to find my inspiration from home decor so I typically pull from there however it’s all about what moves you. When you look at something and it makes you feel that may just be the perfect starting point for designing your brand.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks emphasis on charity opportunities as well??? It’s hard to know if you don’t leave a comment and tell me, but that’s for another day .  Today I want to tell those of you that did leave comments this week and continually leave comments and let me know that this isn’t me just talking to the mirror – THANK YOU – it’s important for me that I know you’re here. And this week I needed to hear that someone is better for my sharing this information. Because if that’s not happening, there is no reason to continue. So I wanted to especially thank those of you who left a comment about how you’re giving back. It means so much to get your feedback — it’s through you that I continue to be inspired.

Based on Creativity – I especially love what Megan is doing based on my heart I love it all and think what Rose and Madison are doing is particularly difficult emotionally but worth every tear we shed. Ladies (Megan, Rose and Madison) I’d love for you to email me so I can offer you something special!



  1. You are at it again. Beautiful Branding!

  2. The suitcases rock. Great idea!

    I love these colors! And I think I need that chair 😉

  4. Kristen S says:

    ohhh…I just LOVE this! I must say, I think this is my favorite “inspired branding” post yet.

  5. samantha says:

    Let me first say that I love love love your inspired branding posts (really everything you post) and I’m totally amazed at the talent you have to “see” things and instantly put a complete branding package together. I’ve been a photographer for 10 years and I’m still struggling with my branding and am currently still working on it. 😉

    My question is how do you take your branding and combine the ideas to make it work for each type of photography? For example, how do I mix the fun, senior branding with the children and wedding photography side of it as well. I want to keep it fun and funky for teens but yet more ‘grown up’ for my wedding couples all with the same branding?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Okay, I love this branding idea and I love, love those suitcases. What great talent you have in putting all this together. Simply wonderful! This post makes me kind of want to change my mind on the branding ideas I’ve come up with already. (I’m still just planning things out.) Decisions, decisions. 🙂

  7. I love these kind of post, I learn a lot and get some great idea’s. Thanks so much.

  8. I’m so glad I came across this post! I haven’t been on here in awhile, but I will deffiantly be back for more! That is a great idea to use home decor for inspiration when branding………..never thought about that:-)

  9. Carrie says:

    Ooooooh! I really like this chair and all the colors! Very fun!
