Our Proven Process

Curious about what it’s like to work with us for your Branding Photography? Below is our proven process that we use with our clients to ensure that your experience is seamless (and enjoyable!) from start to finish.

1. Create a Game Plan

We know you’re busy– we’ll schedule a phone call and discuss your photography needs  so we can select the perfect Branding Session for you, and schedule your first session 4-6 weeks out. While you continue your regular schedule over these next weeks, we’ll be researching your industry and come up with the way to best market you and your brand.

2. Creative Consultation

We’ll create an in-depth Brand Questionnaire for you to make sure you get the perfect images for you, and that it works with our game plan.  With your answers, we’ll be able to craft the perfect branding session for you; whether you’re looking to attract sponsors, customers, or evolve your image, we’ll create a plan that matches both your vision and your schedule.  We’ll help you choose locations, wardrobe choices, and stylized scenes for your brand content that will set you apart from the competitors.

3. Create Innovative Content and Capture Amazing Images

After we come up with a game plan and complete planning, we’ll be able to begin branding you and your company to give you a new elevated image. We’ll create unique images together to capture your brand’s personality and aesthetic.  Throughout the session, we’ll be making sure that you’re both comfortable and confident– after working so hard to build your brand, you should be proud and confident of the work that you’ve done. 

4. Curate + Deliver

After your session is complete, our in-house editing team will put the finishing touches on your images so that you look your very best. Within one week of your session, your final high resolution images will be posted in an online gallery. You’ll then download your gorgeous new images directly from the gallery.

5. Elevate!

After a Bauman Photographers branding session, you’ll end up with images that elevate your brand, set you apart from your competition, and catch the eyes of who you’re looking to attract.  No longer having to devote time to updating your branding, you’ll be able to focus on other areas of yourself and company as you’ll have materials that can be easily used to market yourself both online and on paper to customers, sponsors, and beyond.  

Our Incredible Clients

We have been fortunate to work with a seriously incredible list of clients at our San Diego Studio. Read below about their experience of working with us for their product photography.

“We’ve used Bauman Photographers several times – they are our go-to photographer! They somehow manage to capture warmth and personality in headshots while still conveying professionalism. They do a lot with a little direction and hav always exceeded expectations. Plus, we just love working with their sweet team members!”

Carrie B.


“I’ve been working with Bauman Photographers on a consistent basis for over 9 years now. They are extremely talented and I’m always getting compliments from my clients on how much they loved meeting and working with the team. The production side of their studio is also very talented and have always demonstrated the desire to go the extra mile for us in meeting our tight deadlines.”

Brian T.

Attorney Journal Magazine

“Bauman’s personal brand photography has elevated my personal fashion and art brand in so many ways. The perception of my brand has improved, my social media photos get more positive feedback and overall engagement, and my confidence as the central subject of the imagery has gone through the roof. They simply just get my vision and I will continue to come back!”

Case Study:

Pat Flynn

The founder and face behind Smart Passive Income, Pat Flynn, is always in need of fresh and engaging image content for his blog and online marketing materials. Each time we work together, we aim to create a wide variety of looks – from professional headshots to story-telling scenes – to fill out his extensive digital marketing needs.

Case Study:

Phillips & Pelly

The team at Phillips & Pelly Law works tirelessly for their clients – and they needed images that would reflect their dedication and lifestyle. They needed far more than just beautiful, professional headshots for their team of lawyers and paralegals – but scenes of their day-to-day life assessing cases and collaborating as a team of trusted experts.


“We have loved working with Bauman Photographers so much that we have hired them again and again for everything from family photos to professional and business related photography as well. There isn’t anyone else I would recommend for the best photos you can get, and to take it one step further, they make every shoot comfortable, fun and enjoyable!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Will you help me with what to wear?

Absolutely! We will send a personalized mood board prior to your session, where we’ll talk through plenty of outfit inspiration. You will shop and source your outfits on your own, but we’re here to help you choose the most flattering looks and give you direction on what will look best on camera. 

How soon can I book my Branding Session?

Ideally, we prefer to book 4-6 weeks in advance so that we have plenty of time to research and prepare for your customized Branding Session. If you have a tight timeline, we can most likely accommodate your session earlier than 4 weeks – however, the shooting locations we have access to for your session may be limited.

Do you book Hair & Makeup for me?

Yes! We always include professional makeup with all of our Branding Sessions, and if you’re booking a Complete Branding Session (full-day), we include a professional hair stylist as well. We’ll take care of booking the stylists for you, and they will meet you on site prior to your session. It’s one less thing for you to worry about!

Do you have a limit on the number of locations we can include in the session?

We don’t have a limit – however, we are realistic with our shooting timeline! We’ll create an in-depth shoot timeline ahead of time so that you know exactly how we’ll spend your day, and we’ll set a realistic expectation of how many locations will be possible in that timeframe.

Will I get to keep all of the images in my gallery?

With our Branding Sessions, we know you are here because you need a wide assortment of new images for your brand. So – yes! You will have the full download to your entire online gallery.

Do you include any retouching for my images?

We include 10 fully retouched images (of your choice) for a Complete Branding Session, and 5 retouched images for a Half-Day Session. However, you always have the option to purchase additional retouched images at any time for just $10/each.

Can I bring my team with me?

Absolutely! Our Personal Branding Sessions are made for just one person, but our Corporate Branding Sessions allow for your full team to be included in the fun!
