Planning Personal Branding Photos for Non-Profit Founder

When I received the inquiry from Amy telling me she was needing personal brand photos for non-profit called The Well Initiative, my interest immediately peeked. I attend a church on Friday nights that is very organic and almost house-church like. The name of it? You guessed it. The Well!  Once I visited her website, my heart was incredibly stirred! Amy’s greatest passion is to mobilize the faith community to solve the world’s biggest challenges, from human trafficking to global poverty and women’s empowerment. After meeting her, she has the heart and experience to fulfill that calling. Ministry is near and dear to my heart. As I drive to a photo shoot, I pray for the client and the session. My prayer for Amy is that God will use her personal branding photos to bring Him glory. Through the images, I pray Jesus will be seen in her. I pray that when people look at her webpage they are drawn to her loving and humble spirit as I am. It’s a blessing to me to be a small part in advancing the kingdom. Personal branding photos for a non-profit founder is more than just pictures!

The Story and Vision of The Well Initiative

(From The Well Initiative)

It all started with one woman.

In John chapter four we are introduced to the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. An outcast in her society, she walks to the well in the heat of the day to draw water for her household. It is there that she meets Jesus and has a radical encounter that changes the trajectory of her life. As she returns to her community, she delivers the good news to anyone who will listen.

While once marginalized, she becomes a leader who changes the trajectory of history.

This story teaches us about God’s heart. Just as He provides practical needs in addition to spiritual truth, our mission as the church must be to equip and mobilize others to care for the least of these.

“The Well Initiative” seeks to do both. Rooted in the power of prayer and the work of those in practice, it seeks to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ while also meeting the practical needs of those who need hope and encouragement the most. We invite you to join us on this journey as we seek to change one life at a time for the sake of the Gospel.

Personal Brand Photos at Highland Village Shopping Center

As requests for speaking engagements roll in, Amy needs a combination of headshots and lifestyle images. To this end, we opted to shoot at Highland Village Shopping Center in Dallas. The shoot was originally scheduled for Friday, but then rain, wind, and cold appeared in the forecast so we moved the shoot up a day, and enjoyed a balmy 70 degree photoshoot! It was fun to walk around the shopping center amidst the hustle and bustle of workmen decorating for Christmas and get to know one another. Amy chose three outfits, two were professional and one was casual. They all looked beautiful with her hair color and skin tone. The  minimalistic creams help keep the viewer’s focus on her face in the images. I hope you enjoy the inspiration and you can learn more about Amy in this article!

Tips to prep for an outdoor shoot

So, if you aren’t quite sure what to plan for an outdoor shoot when the weather can be unpredictable, here are a few ideas:

  1. Bring walking shoes! (You can wear these in between times when you want to wear heels in the photos)
  2. Bring a carrying bag for your props
  3. Bring a mirror
  4. Layer up (helps in the cold, but also provides different looks for your images)
  5. Be flexible! (If it’s windy, you might just spend a lot of time behind a building blocking the wind. If it’s hot, you might have to keep blotting your face. You may be surprised how much you love your images, even in crappy weather!)
