Imagine trying to learn the quirks of camera settings and the psychology of marketing between checking to-dos off your mile-long list and, oh you know, living a full life. How? When? With what time?
As a fellow small business owner, I’ve experienced that overwhelming, million-direction tug on the journey toward a thriving business. But just because we are each the stars of our own one-woman shows doesn’t mean we have to do everything by ourselves.
You don’t have to become America’s Next Top Brand Photographer to have the marketing imagery of your dreams. And you don’t have to invest months into research or break the bank to get it either! Through my signature brand photography experience intentionally curated for local Richmond small business owners like you, you’ll receive a gallery that elevates your brand by connecting you with customers you love.
Marketing photography isn’t just about images that showcase your products and services…although I certainly deliver those with an unmatched attention to detail! No, it’s about so much more. It’s about the transformation that comes when you finally have professional, unique, engaging marketing content intentionally crafted to meaningfully connect you with the clients of your dreams. Through the JVP brand photography experience you’ll receive:
To begin the journey, simply fill out my inquiry form telling me a bit about your business and your vision for your brand photography session. Then, I’ll respond in two business days or less with next steps. Now, pour yourself a glass of wine because you’ve just made the first massive leap toward an investment in your business that will benefit you for years to come!
Next, you’ll receive a bit more information on all the possibilities ahead. If you’d like, we can hop on a discovery call to answer any questions. Or if you feel confident and know there’s no time to waste, why wait?! You can go ahead and choose the best time for your session right away, and we’ll dive right into planning!
Once you’ve decided the JVP brand experience is for you, you’ll receive an extensive brand photography guide to help you get oriented. Learn a bit more about my philosophies behind each step in the process in this extensive, informative guide. But remember, I’m always available for any and all questions you may have!
Next, I’ll send a brand questionnaire your way so I can best capture all the finer details of your business. I’ll use this information to refine a session that reflects your unique business! We can schedule an additional call during this step, too. I always want to make sure you have all the information you need without ever feeling overwhelmed. Then, two weeks before your session, you’ll receive your brand mood board, a detailed shot list, and even a packing list for everything you need to bring along. Next stop: session day!
I’ll head to our session location early to set up all the lighting equipment and props. When you arrive, I’ll walk you through the full plan to make sure you feel comfy and confident about what’s ahead. We’ll even play your favorite music and take plenty of breaks, so those smiling muscles don’t get tired! Who knew investing in the future of your business could be this much fun? Then, just three weeks later, your final gallery will arrive in your inbox!

“Jontell is incredibly thorough, organized, and accommodating. I was totally overwhelmed with the idea of a branding shoot, but she helped me prepare, find a location, and feel confident.”
“During the shoot, I was really nervous but Jontell made me feel so comfortable that the two hours flew by. She was incredibly detail oriented and put in extra effort to make sure my pictures were perfect. She gave me all the directions on how to pose for the photos and arranged my props so it looked beautiful. I am so happy with the photos she took and love how they look on my website.”
“The process was seamless and she left no corner unturned - asking you to dive deep into your 'why', to ensure that's seen in every photo and taking a variety of shots for marketing diversity. I am beyond pleased with my experience and I have every intention of using her again as my business grows.”
No need to worry! Everyone's a little nervous about taking photos—it’s completely normal. I’m an expert in posing you so it feels natural and effortless. Just relax because I have all of those details covered!
I’m nervous about getting in front of the camera! How do I pose?
Yes, my traditional payment plan is 50% upfront to reserve your date, with the remaining 50% due two weeks before your session date. But I’m happy to design a payment plan that works best for you. Just send me a message!
Do you offer payment plans?
I have a whole list of recommendations to share! From Charlottesville to Richmond to Northern Virginia, I have tons of studio spaces up my sleeve, and I can tailor my recommendations to your brand’s story and specific needs as a business owner.
How do I select a location for the session?
While you don’t have to, I do recommend my clients book hair and makeup artists, so they’re looking and feeling their best for the camera. My client guide includes recommendations on finding the best beauty professional for you, and I’ve even curated a list of talented local professionals who specialize in a variety of skin tones and styles!
Should I book a hair and makeup artist?
Yes, I’d love to travel to your location! I travel primarily within Virginia and the surrounding states but am happy to branch out. Travel cost is $50 per hour of driving, plus lodging fees. I can’t wait to build a custom package for you based on your location!
Do you travel outside of Richmond for brand sessions?
I love propelling business owners like you into new, exciting phases of business. Let’s celebrate your brand’s personality with bright, captivating photography that sells! Ready to see how my signature brand photography experience can transform your business?
