STEPHANIE GILBERT: Workwear Stylist
Personal Branding Photos
She styled herself and did a fantastic job putting so many looks together. She's got a heart of gold and I've loved seeing what she's giving the world.
First off, what was your main reason in choosing to hire me?
I chose you because I wanted non-traditional head shots. I saw that your work was just that: Professional photography that captured the person from the inside out. I saw play and purpose in your work. I saw happy people in your images. Their happiness did not take away from their professionalism. Also, your work was not “cheesy”. It was cool and relatable.
What tipped me over the edge, was listening to you speak.
Then, what changed the most for you in the immediate weeks and months after working with me?
More than anything, I started showing my face in my online marketing. I knew that I had to do that, and I needed the right photographer to help me to see myself as as a beautiful woman.
Why was that important? That was important to me because I want to attract clients who are “real” just like me.
- A bit uncertain, but willing to lean into discomfort and be seen
- If I can do it, she can do it
Did you see any specific growth in how you handled yourself personally, how you handled business decisions, or how many clients you were working with?
Personally – Instant Badass Brand changed everything for me. You got to the core of who I was, and the brand I was developing. I didn’t have that direction before meeting you Britney.
You spoke to me, and you listened to me. You treated me with dignity and respect every step of the way. You showed me how a client should be treated.
Business Decisions – After working with you Britney, I made business decisions aligned with my purpose - You gently drew that out of me. Now, even when I go off track a bit, I revisit my notes from our interview and remember that’s who I am. That’s the kind of business I must lead.
Clients – Girl! I booked my first Premium Service (four figure) client within weeks after publishing my new images. In less than a year, I’ve created a new product to serve a new ICA (Ideal Client Avatar) at a new price point. It’s a workbook, and the images that you took are on my About the Author page, and on the back cover.
