Together, let’s

Create
Content that Connects

Let’s tell your story in a way that helps you connect with your audience.

Personal Brand Photography

Imagine: three months 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

Drive conversions

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.

Hey there,

I’m Melissa
(Claire)

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.

Travel costs are not included in the pricing. Depending on where you want the shoot to take place, this may include gas, parking, flights, accommodation, travel insurance, etc. 

Hair and make-up is not included

Hair and make-up preferences can be really personal, so I don’t include it. If you would like hair and make-up for your shoot, you can book someone you know on your own, or I’d be happy to recommend someone for you.

Client Love

I think we can do great things together, but don’t just take my word for it.

“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

Owner/Instructor, Loyobo Fit

“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!”

“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

Speaker, Movement Maker, Writer, The Imperfect Boss

“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!!!”
