I understand how uncomfortable and awkward it can feel to be in front of the camera. I know it's weird to have a stranger all up in your face with a big fat piece of equipment! I know you are worried about stray hairs and fading lipstick. That's why I make it my highest priority to do everything I can to put you at ease in front of the camera.
Way before your session date, we spend time over the phone or video chat planning and preparing the details of your shoot including location ideas. We come up with a personalized shot list including close ups of your products or props, capturing what you do behind the scenes, what you love, and of course full length and close up headshots.
We'll start your session off with some casual chit chat and then look through the props and clothing you brought. We'll decide the order of the outfits and make a game plan. You can relax knowing that although this may be your first branding shoot, I've got you covered! 'll start you off with my proven posing system that eases you into the session. I'll look out for the details such as stray hairs and lopsided necklaces. My goal is for you to leave loving the energy and the time we had together focusing on making you feel beautiful! I photograph you just how I would want to be photographed - with an eye for detail and a good dose of encouragement!
You are unique and so is your business, so from the planning stages to the image delivery, together we look at how we can make your personal brand stand out. Your images won't be stale and generic, but instead, your personality will shine through! We will capture you and the heart of your business and your clients will see your brand story unfold. They will learn to trust you through the authenticity and consistency they see in your images!
When your session is over you won't have to waste precious hours deciding which pictures to purchase. Everything at KM Photography is included in the package you choose. You will be provided a link in which you can easily download the original and social size edited files and then print or post the ones you desire!
It's my passion to help business women stand out in their markets, and I would love the opportunity to learn about what you do!
Dr. Jones is a chiropractor in Sachse, TX. When we reviewed her client questionnaire, the words that emerged were peace, relaxation, comfort and rest. She wanted to portray not only wellness for the body but also for the soul and spirit.
We started off at a local outdoor location for some casual individual photos and then some with her husband and dog. Being in regular clothes, makes her look approachable to potential clients and not like a scary doctor!
Our second location was back at her office for both interior and exterior shots as well as photos of her in action and praying with co-workers and taking communion. She desired to emphasize chiropractic care with the healing ministry of Jesus coming together to treat the body with a hands on approach to healthcare.
Dr. Jones took advantage of our recommendation for a hair and makeup artist and also used Galligan Media for a video for her marketing as well as the still photos we provide.
The mission of Faith, Family & Fitness is to transform the lives of women of all ages through the revealing truth of God's Word and equipping them in the areas of faith, nutrition, and physical fitness.
Sherry is a personal trainer for small groups of women. She's a motivator and encourager and a true friend to those who enroll in their classes!
How do I know? Because after my third baby, she helped whip me back in shape!
Her gym is located in Sachse. We incorporated some of her students in the shoot, and they got a mini workout that day! We also took some photos of her in jeans to show her casual and fun side!
Sherry works a full time job and hold classes on a part time basis so she has plans for her branding photos as she expands her fitness business.
Amber's dog, Roo, plays a very important role in her trauma and grief counseling practice, so naturally, she was a big part of Amber's photo shoot.
In addition to her sweet dog, she also utilizes play therapy for her clients, so she has an entire room dedicated to art, games, books, dress up and more.
Some of the meaningful visual elements that represent her brand include the cross, signifying freedom and truth and the palm tree representing hope and strength.
She desired her pictures to communicate with clients that she is trustworthy and that they will be heard, understood and validated.

COMPREHENSIVE BRAND QUESTIONNAIRE
personalized shot list
Before we ever set foot on location we do research. Think of me as a member of your team. From the answers on your questionnaire, we'll have a 1:1 strategy call to discuss the specifics of your business, the things that fire you up, your ideal client, the market and more.
With your new personal branding images, you are going to feel like you can conquer the world and will confidently post them! Stand out with professional photos that communicate the heart behind what you do, and inspire you to get back to loving and serving your tribe!
There may be a lot of people who do what you do, but there is only one you! When your ideal clients see they are interacting with REAL PEOPLE and develop a personal connection, they begin to trust you and do business with you. And, when you are YOU, no one can copy that!
VISUAL APPEAL & PROFESSIONALISM.
The top four social media apps are image based! According to Linked In, a whopping 84% of communication is visual! Although headshots are a start, they are generally stale and don't communicate the ins and outs of what you do. Whatever you do, be it a a baker, an artist, a blogger etc, your personality will shine!
How many times do you go back to what you know or buy from someone a friend referred? We all want to trust those we do business with, and when clients see the face of the business, they know more about who they are doing business with and they are more likely to buy from you because they love you, quirks and all!
With three session types to choose from to meet your unique needs, we can personalize a plan especially for you and your unique brand!

"I decided it was time to have some professional branding photographs taken for my business and I wanted to find someone very similar to my style and had similar beliefs in life and business. I can't thank God enough for bringing Kelly and I together! Kelly has been with me every step of the way. From brainstorming location ideas, to outfits and props, she has made this process so easy and fun! I can't recommend her enough! I am so excited for my next session!"
"...I can't recommend Kelly enough!"
"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Kelly! She was able to bring the ideas in my head to life for my branding shoot! She took me to beautiful sites around the area that were perfect for my pictures! She was warm, kind, and made me feel very comfortable and confident during the photo session. It was an absolute blessing to work with her and I will continue to be working with Kelly in the future for continued branding sessions. I can't tell you how many compliments I'm getting on my pictures she captured, so, so, so happy!
"I can't tell you how many compliments I'm getting!"

"Had such a blast working with Kelly McMullin Photography and Galligan Media on a branding project! They are an incredible team that truly makes you feel special and focused on my goals. A sweet little princess wanted to say hi and brought me back to my Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders days. The best part of cheering was being able to love on others and bring happiness to their day. Giving back is what we all remember and continues to exist in our daily lives. Thanks for the opportunity, Kelly."
"She truly made me feel special and focused on my goals"
What you do is important. It matters and I feel blessed to be a small part of your life during this season! After your initial inquiry, you'll fill out a brand questionnaire that will help me fashion your individual stories.
During the call I'll ask you several questions related to your end goal and we'll clarify things from the questionnaire. You will also have a chance to ask me anything. If you haven't decided on a plan, I can recommend the best one for your situation.
I hope the relationship doesn't end after I deliver your digital images. I would love to see how you use your photos and hear about which ones are your favorites. And, of course, I'd love to serve your growing business again!
