Content that Connects
Let’s tell your story in a way that helps you connect with your audience: through personal brand photography.
Personal Brand Photography
Imagine: a beautiful variety of images in one day so you can get back to living that wonderful life you created for yourself, without worrying about Instagramming it all.
That’s where personal brand photography comes in.
Custom, quality images
Forget about selfies, forget about “good enough” photos taken with your phone, and forget about looking like everyone else with the same free stock images.
Custom, authentic brand images help you stand out from the crowd, tell the story behind your business, and connect with your audience so you can build a lasting relationship.
Take back your time
Take back your time. In just one day, we’ll get three months worth of images so you can stop worrying about what you’ll do for the next post. Or the next one. Or the one after that.
All the images I provide you with will come in the exact formats you need. You’ll get all the full-resolution images, plus Instagram-ready versions, and any other sizes based on where you’ll be using them.
Strengthen your brand image
Professional images let your audience know that you’re a professional and you take your work seriously. Quality images show them that you want to provide them with value and quality content
Your first impression matters, and your audience connects with images much more quickly than even the shiniest copy. When you show your audience who you are and what you do, it helps establish trust. Know + Like + Trust = Conversions.
I bet you’re wondering about my work
Check out some of my work below.
I help online entrepreneurs grow their brands and build trust with their audiences through personal brand photography.
I started By Melissa Claire to combine my love for incredible stories with helping others live their dreams and accomplish amazing things. People love stories. How we communicate those stories helps us to attract the right audience, the ones that really get our drive and mission.
The nature of running an online business today requires a lot of content. Strong, consistent, on-brand visual content is one of the best ways to quickly communicate the who, what, and why of your business with your audience and establish a personal connection. I’m here to help you get all the images you need, so you can get back to living the life you’ve created for yourself.
The personal touch
Getting to know you and your business is key to creating content that connects on a more personal level. The planning process will be collaborative, and yes, that means you’ll have some homework. I can’t tell your story without you!
I use online project management and file sharing tools to make sure we’re both on the same page and I’ll be there to answer any questions, provide advice, and help you tell your story authentically.
How it works
Get in touch
The first step is to get in touch with me so we can schedule a consultation.
We’ll go through all the details and get to know each other, and I’ll take this time to learn more about your business, too!
Make it official
If we both agree we’re a good fit, I’ll send over the contract and you’ll pay a deposit to seal the deal.
Discovery questionnaire + planning
We’ll dive deep to outline exactly what you want to communicate to your audience and sort out details for the shoot.

“Melissa has been such a pleasure to work with. As someone who is not usually comfortable in front of a camera, Melissa made me feel at ease with her humor and photography skill even in a public setting. she stayed in touch with me all through the prep for the shoot and the end content was exactly as I envisioned. She even provided a mock-up of how to use my images!”Nitika Burman Watson
“Melissa is patient, kind and so professional. I have worked with many other photographers and no one was able to capture my brand, the feeling and look that I wanted the way that she did! It was a blast to work with her. She went above and beyond my expectations. She has done lifestyle photos for me and my team of fitness instructors, and also captured the grand opening event for my fitness studio. I highly recommend her and will be using her for all my shots moving forward! Thank you Melissa!”Courtney McCarthy
“Melissa is such a sweetheart! She enjoys her craft, and literally makes you feel special throughout the whole shoot. Melissa did a brand photo shoot for me, which turned out to be amazing! I’ve never had one done before, since I’m always the one behind the lens, so it was exciting, refreshing, and tons of fun! I’ve used the images from my brand shoot with Melissa on my social media and also website. I highly recommend working with her, and look forward to hiring her for future photography projects as well!”Tania Moraes-Vaz
“Working with Melissa was a dream! She took photos for my event and she was so incredible at capturing not just the details and events, but the emotion and connection. Super fan.”Ashley Beaudin
“Not only is Melissa a total sweetheart she is also an amazingly talented photographer! I am a wedding photographer and Melissa did a brand photo shoot with me and I LOVED working with her!! She came to my home and captured photos of me in my home office and made me feel so comfortable!! At the end of our shoot Melissa felt like a friend I had known forever!! She sent the edited photos to me in a short time after the shoot and I’m still obsessed with them!! I’m already using them for my website and social media. If you need a brand photographer, Melissa is your girl!!!”Azra Jessa
