Branding

Don’t know if you're ready for a shoot like this?

Here's what’s special about me:

I help you design a session that meets your unique needs (a session for a book launch is different from monthly social media needs, for instance). I help clients with styling. I can get several looks in a finite amount of time without needing to rush the client. I’m flexible on location. Most importantly, I help people feel comfortable in front of the camera and get natural expressions.

When are you ready for a signature branding package?

You’re ready if you’d love to...

  • Launch a new business with memorable images.
  • Make your book launch full of hype!
  • Appear differently than “everyone else” you see and stick out in the Instagram scroll.
  • Use images to tell the story of what you do, your work, and client interactions.
  • Infuse personality into your marketing! (Farewell, stock photos!)
  • Convey your business’s vibe (urban, rural, with the Citgo sign, etc)
"I had the pleasure of doing a set of early morning headshots with Mira. She really knows what she's doing! She picked a location that allowed for a mix of urban versus natural backdrops. We walked around grabbing various photos and I felt comfortable and at ease the whole time - unlike some photographers, where you can feel stilted, posed, and asked to take on a host of unnatural positions. I received my sneak peak within a couple days and my whole gallery in less than a week, and I'm completely delighted with the results. My family will treasure this! My only regret is not living closer to Boston - I would love to get portraits for the whole family sometime."
-- Lusann Y.
"Mira is spectacular! She photographed my video production company, Media Electric Inc, behind the scenes and on location in Providence, RI. She found her way in and around the confusion to capture the moments. She's got that sense of where to be and when. I also had the pleasure of video recording one of her newborn sessions. She connects with people and knows where the story and the magic are to be found."
-- Jonathan G.
"Had a great experience working with Mira on a photo shoot for a book promotion - I generally dislike having my picture taken but Mira made it very easy and it only took about 20 minutes or so, and the results were really worth it."
-- Shai D.
"Awesome job working with Mira, she took the best photo of me ever and worked with our group to make us shine! She was flexible and encouraging and seemed to know what would look just right."
-- Mary Ellen G.

FAQs

Yes, you can check out my page that shares all the details here. I'm also up-to-date on my flu shot and all other vaccinations.

So that you can see what to expect from a session with me through the images I create and what we can create together. If I can't share images from every single client I photograph (except for those that pay the small privacy fee for not signing a model release), then people can't see the consistency of the product that I deliver. A model release allows me to use the images in my online portfolio, website, and social media.

I value your privacy and can work with you to keep your images private for an additional fee of 25% of the session or event fee. Without this fee, many might not allow me to share the images I create for them, and it is hard to get hired as a photographer without a collection of images.

Please let me know if you're interested in a complimentary styling service so I can send you a personalized link when you book your session. If you are in an industry where suits are standard, it would be a good idea to wear a suit, but if you work in a more casual field, don't feel like you need to be dressed to the nines just because it's a business portrait — these images need to represent you and your work. For headshots and personal branding portraits, generally, you want to wear solid colors (be sure to iron if necessary!) so that your outfit doesn't take away from your gorgeous face. If you decide to wear something with a pattern, it is best to avoid busy patterns or graphics (unless you are wearing something with a company logo). Choosing something simple and accessorizing to provide some pizazz is an excellent choice since it gives us lots of options during your session — with and without your snazzy jacket or scarf or a statement necklace or earrings. Have a variety, so you don't have to change your entire outfit. If you are getting a haircut, do so 1-2 weeks ahead of your session, so it has time to settle in. I don't recommend trying a drastically new hairstyle on the day of the shoot. If you're someone who never wears makeup or only wears a minimum, that's fine! There's no need to go all out if that's not something you usually do. If that IS something you normally do, go for it! The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and good in the clothes you pick!

I can book family sessions up to 6 months in advance. For Fall family portraits, I recommend booking within 3 months as prime foliage dates get booked early. Families participating in my Seasonal Family Portraits Program get preferential booking for those popular dates.

Once you book your session, we'll chat (via email, phone, or in-person — your choice) about the specifics of your situation. If you decide on reserving a date, we will choose a time, and I will put it on my calendar after I receive your session fee and contract.

I will travel within a 30-minute radius of Arlington, MA. If you're farther away, I am happy to travel to you for $2 per mile outside of my regular zone.

After your session, I will carefully go through all the images and bring out the very best. Within two days, I will post a sneak peek on my Facebook page, where you'll be able to share some of the images immediately with your friends and family. I recommend tagging yourself in the image to reach more of your friends' and family's newsfeeds. The full editing process will take about 2 weeks for portrait sessions and 3 weeks for events. If you need rush pricing, please let me know. You will receive an online gallery with full-resolution images you will be able to download to your computer or mobile devices.

Prints from my professional lab are available through your online gallery.
