Welcome…Mary Kathleen Brands!

Mary Kathleen Brands | Upstate, NY

I am SO excited to finally share what I have been working on over the past few months! Mary Kathleen Brands! I have always had a passion for helping people succeed. As a small business owner, naturally, I love small businesses. Behind every small business owner is a dream chaser. Running a small business isn’t for the faint of heart, but what a journey it is. We wear many hats, and as much as we would like to do it all ourselves, going out of our comfort zone will only help us grow more. That’s where I come in!

As business owners, one of the best ways to connect with your audience and build trust is through creative imagery tailored to represent your brand. By having a collection of purposeful imagery, you will gain confidence in your audience and attract your ideal clients. You deserve to be shown to the world. Everyone has something special to offer. These brand images will be relatable and professional, truly showcasing your brand as a whole.

Brand photography is more than just your average headshot or a photo of you with your laptop. It’s about really digging deep into why you do what you do and how you want to connect with your audience. I strive to capture joyful, genuine, and connected branding images that will elevate your business. From the moment you inquire to the moment your gallery is delivered, you will have a personalized experience tailored to growing your business with branding images that reflect you!

My goal is to tailor your experience to exactly what your business needs. You will have a personalized experience from start to finish with a collection of professional brand images that showcase your business as a whole. Every experience will be personal, diving deep into your heart + brand. We will have a discovery + planning call, you will receive an inspiration board + detailed shot-list, we will have a fun session day showcasing your why + how, and you will receive purposeful brand imagery that elevates your business, including a mixture of lifestyle, flat lays, creative process, and render images, all within a private online gallery delivered within 4 weeks filled with digital images to share instantly!

I am beyond excited to pair together my love for small businesses, community building, and creative imagery to help grow your business. I cannot wait to get to know your business and tell your story!

A HUGE thank you to my dear friend, Bridget, for taking these amazing brand images for me. Go check out her work! https://www.bphotogenicphotography.com/

Here is what my branding clients have to say about their #marykathleenbrands experience:

Mary is fantastic to work with. She is organized, she is fun and laid back but yet professional. She puts you at ease, she is creative and has neat ideas on angles and what to incorporate into the photos. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect as I never envisioned myself being a business owner and putting myself out there like this but this whole experience has vamped up my motivation to continue to move forward with my business plan. The photos are exceptional and I have received so many compliments about the ones I have posted already!”

“Every aspect of Mary’s business is run with a level of professionalism that is unmatched. Mary is not only a phenomenal photographer, she is a down to earth, personable, and caring person. During our sessions, she was able to work at a quick pace, capturing exactly what my business embodies. She exceeded expectations, leaving me in tears of joy. She provided me with something so special that will last forever. I’ll forever be grateful with what Mary was able to do for my business! SHE IS ONE OF A KIND!”
