Wendy Yalom's introduction videos

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE YOUR BRAND TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND FEEL LIKE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY DOESN’T REPRESENT THE QUALITY OF YOUR WORK IN THE WORLD? EITHER IT’S OUTDATED OR ABSENT COMPLETELY? Does it seem like you can’t take a good natural looking professional photograph? Do you think you need to “make it” before you invest in having professional personal branding photography? Are you curious to see what results in your business and personal life from having professionally crafted personal branding photographs that feel as if they were candidly captured by your best friend at a moment when you were feeling celebrated, bright and naturally radiant? Then you are in the Right Place!

I am an award-winning San Francisco photographer with a gift for seeing and capturing your true essence. Through my work photographing entrepreneurs, speakers, celebrities, authors and thought leaders, I have made an art of recreating you in front of the camera the way you are seen by your closest friends and deepest admirers. In my fun & loving presence, you’ll forget that you are getting your picture taken, and relax into your natural state of strength and mastery. Once there, picture after picture fly from my camera – each one more flattering then the last.

My personal branding photography make a $1000 website feel like a $10,000 website and an “I don’t know” feel like a “yes”. In the age of social media and personal brands, every person deserves a photograph that leaves the right first impression – one that’s consistent with the deepest treasures that your most intimate loved ones already know is true about you – a photograph that reveals their authentic beauty. I bring that love and enthusiasm for you and your most compelling traits to life in your session, which makes this portrait a transformational experience in itself.

I coach you into discovering and revealing who are becoming, what your personal branding looks like  and then with over a decade of experience as a photographer I curate a personal branding photography  experience that includes professional hair and makeup, style consultation, custom location and a collection of color-perfected photos for to share, reveal and cherish for a lifetime.

Do you know that quote from Marianne Williamson, the one with this line-

“OUR DEEPEST FEAR IS NOT THAT WE ARE INADEQUATE. OUR DEEPEST FEAR IS THAT WE ARE POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE. IT IS OUR LIGHT NOT OUR DARKNESS THAT MOST FRIGHTENS US. WE ASK OURSELVES, WHO AM I TO BE BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?

Actually, who are you not to be?”

 

It has been a process for me to discover the courage and willingness necessary to shine in this WORLD, to admit and reveal my brilliance, my gorgeousness, my talent and fabulousness! It is through my own deep personal work along with mastery professional photography that I have found the formula for supporting YOU in having your brilliance, your gorgeousness, your talent and your fabulosity be both revealed and captured on camera. The result is portraits of you looking and feeling authentically vibrant and beautiful of the quality that could easily appear in the pages of Vogue, Vanity Fair or Entrepreneur.

One of the great privileges of my work is that I’m often entrusted with my clients fears and concerns when it comes to having their photos taken

Left quote I DON’T LOOK GOOD ON CAMERA…
I’M AFRAID THAT YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO CAPTURE MY ESSENCE…
I WILL LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT…
I THINK THAT I’M NOT GOING TO LOOK BEAUTIFUL…
I THINK I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE I HAVE PHOTOS TAKEN…
I’VE TRIED THIS BEFORE AND IT DIDN’T WORK…
IT’S GOING TO BE PAINFUL… Right quote

You may be reading this right now, having these same concerns. I understand. I’ve had those fears before and what I’ve discovered is that half the journey to success starts with revealing them, that is your job. The rest of the journey I’ll co-pilot with you. It is my job to find the perfect combination of words and actions that alight your essence and invite, tease, evoke, insist through celebration it’s presence. Then I bring in the “big guns” – three generations of mastery using light and framing and camera settings to capture that moment when you are most captivating through your authenticity.

There is no time like the present and compelling the response you are desiring in the world through having captivating authentically beautiful portraits is not a function of being the right weight or waiting to feel more successful or beautiful. It is about working with a photographer who knows how to approach your deepest fear as Marianne Williamson puts it that you are powerful beyond measure and that right now you can seen and captured on camera as the you who is brilliant, is gorgeous, is talented and is fabulous. Are you ready? I am!
