Downtown, parks, coffee shops, and studios are the most trending. I share more information in this article, so keep reading, and I hope it will help you plan your photo session in Alpharetta.

But first, let me introduce myself.


Hi, there!

My name is Elena, and I am an Alpharetta photographer. I specialize in personal branding photography, brand assistance, visual styling, and image consulting. I have been taking photos for over 15 years, nine of which are in Cancun, Mexico. You can view my Caribbean portfolio by clicking on the following link. Nowadays, I reside in Alpharetta, where I help solo entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals and creatives transform and upgrade the visual side of their businesses. 


The power of the image

90% of what the brain consumes is visual 

and images are processes 60,000 faster than text

That being said, it’s difficult to overestimate the power of visuals in branding, marketing, and advertising a business. The right image can tell a story about your brand without saying a word. A professional headshot, business portrait, or lifestyle branding photo stands for your personal brand even when you have a day off or vacationing with your family. 

Think about your brand photos as a silent visual assistant that is always online and never rests, representing the essence of your personal brand.

Doing photo sessions as an Alpharetta photographer, I learned a lot about this cozy, green town. I am constantly amazed by the visual diversity available in most of the sites around it. Even within one spot, taking multiple photos from different angles is possible, elevating the imaginative process essential for creative photography. The best time for an outdoor photo session in Alpharetta is early morning or late afternoon. My favorite time of the day is from 8-11 AM when the light is very soft and streets; parks are less crowded. The timeline is less important for the indoor photo session, especially if your home or studio has big windows with lots of natural light. 


  • Professional photos that show your individuality
  • Creative approach to photo assignments 
  • A photographer who creates artistic images
  • Personalized photos that tell your brand story
  • Welcoming vibes and friendly encouragement during a photoshoot
  • Consistent collection of images that will help your brand stand out 
  • Photos that you are proud to show on your website and social media

Personal branding photoshoots in Alpharetta can be done in your office or studio. As an Alpharetta photographer, I can meet you there and do a photo shoot that will include branding photos and business portraits. When planning a branding photoshoot, pay attention to the time of the day. The best hours will be when your office or studio has lots of natural light. Soft light from the windows adds brightness and joyfulness to a photoshoot ambiance. That is important if you want photos full of life, easiness, and welcoming vibes. On a cloudy or rainy day, indoor light is not clean and bright enough to create a lifestyle, easy ambiance. The solution is either enhancing it with additional light from flashes, video light diffused with softboxes, or rescheduling a photoshoot.

If you work from home and have a room designed specifically for business and creative purposes, we can take branding photos there. For example, I recently did an artist branding photoshoot for a French painter Francoise, who works at her home studio. It was a sunny spring day, and I took many photos that showed her creativity and workflow. Her home studio, which we used as a photoshoot location, added a personalized touch to every image. She had a great time being in front of the camera, and the result was very candid branding photos. 

You work, create, and spend many hours in your studio or office. It’s designed to your taste and decorated with details that show your individuality. Thus, that’s the place where you feel comfortable. And such friendly vibes will help you relax in front of the camera. Ultimately, what can better show your business and creative personality as your studio or office?

Rent a space 

Another option for a photoshoot location is to rent a space, whether a professional photo studio or a designer apartment. Multiple options in different areas of Alpharetta and around could be found on AirBnB or PeerSpace.

When you plan a branding photoshoot in Alpharetta, Georgia, or any other town, start by conceptualizing a short description of your brand. One easy exercise that can help you in the process is creating a list of words (think in adjectives) that best describe your brand. After you complete it, pick three words from the list that are the most descriptive and important. Those are the ones that characterize the style of your future branding photoshoot. If you include words like cheerful, joyful, inspiring, encouraging, fresh, and outgoing, a lifestyle photoshoot will be an excellent option for your brand.
