Full disclosure: although we style most of our brand sessions, we had the pleasure of working alongside Kim Rico of Drops of Honey Designs who styled this brand session with Katie O Selvidge so beautifully as we photographed it.
This shoot was quite the whirlwind of a shoot. Katie Selvidge reached out to us in December about a destination brand shoot that needed to happen in January of the following year. We had 1 month to plan this! With payments made, plane tickets booked, and contract signed just 2 weeks before the session, Kim of Drops of Honey Designs did an incredible job working with Katie to design this gorgeous brand session.
The majority of our work keeps us in the beautiful city of Houston, Texas (our home), Oklahoma was calling our name this time!
Katie needed photos as a business coach. As a service-based creative business owner, sometimes that can be a challenge. You can click here to read a past blog post of ours regarding how you can approach your brand session if you offer a service instead of a physical product. For her session, Katie would be portraying what a normal day as a business coach would look like: meeting with her clients, brainstorming, her workspace, and just showing off how she does her job.
Spain Ranch brand session
The brand shoot took place at Spain Ranch, a black barn wedding venue in Jenks, Oklahoma. It’s just outside of Tulsa and was the perfect space for our shoot. It has a ton of windows, beautiful interior spaces for shooting, and lovely landscaping for any photos that happen outdoors.
When we arrived, there was much to! You can see the BTS from her shoot in our Instagram stories by clicking here. We had to unload desks, props, styling tools, rugs, chairs and other goods that Kim drove to Oklahoma all the way from Austin, Texas! When that was done, Kim got to work styling flat lays so those would be ready to go when it was time to shoot.
Business coach shoot
The shoot began with Katie’s clients. She invited 3 of her local clients to be a part of her shoot (how cool is that?) so she could portray how she interacts with them and what a coaching session with her looks like. Next, Kim styled some scenes that would go along with some subjects she would regularly chat about with her audience: her workspace, family, her podcast, creative life, her magazine, etc.. Then we finished up with headshots and a few sweet photos with her bump (as she was pregnant at the time).
It was such a beautiful and rewarding trip. View some of our favorites below.
