Jontell Vanessa is a Northeast Ohio based photographer blending strategy and passion to help brands make an impact. 

Welcome to the Jontell Vanessa Photography blog!

I was excited about Kyleigh’s brand shoot the moment her inquiry landed in my inbox! Kyleigh is a super talented food blogger and food photographer based in the Northern Virginia area. I could scroll through her creative shots on Instagram all day long!

Her blog is called Barley & Sage, inspired by her sweet puppy Barley and her last name. So clever, right?!

Our goal for Kyleigh’s session was to create a collection of images that would help Kyleigh’s audiences put a face to her brand. She spends a lot of time in the kitchen, so we searched through dozens of Airbnbs to find a modern, naturally lit kitchen space. It took a lot of searching, but we finally found the perfect space in a cute little neighborhood outside of Richmond, Virginia.

With photos that featured cupcakes and cookies, our workspace smelled absolutely delicious! Kyleigh’s session was really fun and she made my job incredibly easy by thinking of all the little details and props that would accent her images well. She even brought her own KitchenAid mixer with a cute ceramic attachment! Throughout her session, we had a blast chatting about all of the things from being business owners to life during Covid.

Head over to Kyleigh’s blog to check out her signature brown butter recipes. I recently tried her brown butter cupcake recipe for myself and not only was it super easy to follow, but the cupcakes were delicious!

Kyleigh, I hope you love your new brand photos. I had a ton of fun capturing these new photos for you and I can’t wait to see how you use them in your business! I’ll also be trying more of your recipes very soon!

She was so easy and calming to work with, as it was my first branding session. She led me throughout the way and the images are perfect! “

"I am certain that because Jontell got to know me and my brand up front, it allowed her to capture exactly what I wanted.
