I offer personal brand photography to people in business across Gloucestershire who, like me, have family at the heart of their business. Forget the never-ending struggle for content and discover a strong, confident and engaging personal brand, without the need to spend even more time in front of your phone or computer. I can help you to:
First impressions count. And my job as your personal brand photographer is to help you create an excellent first impression – and keep that up going forwards in your business.
Hello! My name is Katie and I am the woman behind the camera here at Moments by Katie Mitchell and I love personal brand photography. I’m not interested in offering you a typical corporate photography service. There are other photographers for that. My aim is not just to take photos of your products or the service you offer or to provide you with the formal headshots that you think you need to look professional. I’m here to help you tell your story, because that’s what your audience are interested in.
I understand the hesitations in booking a professional photographer – it’s something people always put off. They don’t like their picture being taken. They worry they’ll look forced or fake. Perhaps they don’t have the time or are unsure of the return on investment.
I understand what it’s like not to have enough time in the day; we’ll work together to carefully plan your session so that I only take up as much of your time as I need to get the photographs that are really going to boost your brand.
I’m great at putting people at ease (check my testimonials!) and, I promise, as soon as you’re relaxed, nothing about your photos is going to look forced.
I have spent the last seventeen years serving in the British Army so you know you’re going to get punctuality, a mean eye for detail and someone who’s going to work damned hard to get the job done for you. I love that my new career is all about helping others because it’s something I am truly passionate about – I want you to succeed!
I offer low-priced taster sessions for those who’d like to try a personal branding photoshoot before committing to anything further. To find out more, please get in touch.
Here’s what some of my clients said about their personal brand photography session:
A personal branding photoshoot should be high on the to-do list for any business professional. Katie’s approach to preparing for the day, both in terms of locations and story ideas was great. The shoot was relaxed and easy and it was great to be able to preview the shots on the same day. Now I have a whole library of images to support my business. Don’t put it off like I did, it’s really not scary – book your personal branding package with Katie today!
Who is going to be able to make a middle aged woman with twins and her wellness coaching business look authentic, quirky and accessible? Katie Mitchell! I was nervous about posed photos as my boys never stay still and I hate looking fake but Katie managed to navigate around our chaos to come up with images that I am proud to use on all my marketing and sales material along with social media. She is professional, warm, knowledgeable and actually listens to what you want. I would have no hesitation in using Katie in the future to refresh my branding.
I could not have been happier with the branding photos Katie did for me. I usually hate having my photo taken and don’t like looking at pictures of myself but the photos Katie took were amazing. Great quality and great images. She took a lot of trouble to depict the story and image of my brand to make sure we got the right images. Most importantly Katie made having the photos taken a really fun experience. From the initial point of enquiry to the final results responses were very prompt and professional. I cannot recommend Katie highly enough and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.

Yes! You are more than welcome to pay for your preferred photography package in monthly instalments in the run up to your session. Please let me know if you’d like to take advantage of this when booking your session. Payment plans can also be used to pay for your products after your view and order session, however no photographic products will be received until your invoice is paid in full.
No, this will be included in the price of your session. I can either arrange to have it sent to you before your session or I can bring it along on the day and capture the moments as you and your kids get to see what’s inside!
There’s no set figure on the amount of photographs that you’ll receive as everyone’s session will run differently, but rest assured you are going to get a lot of photographs! Because we’ll be visiting lots of different locations, you’ll get far more photographs than you would in a typical family photo session.
I’ve written a blog post detailing the additional precautions in place due to COVID-19. If you have any questions about something that I haven’t covered, then please do not hesitate to ask.
Standard terms and conditions can be found here.
As your photoshoot draws to a close, we’ll arrange a convenient date and time for you to return to the studio for your view and order session. I don’t like to keep clients waiting too long, so I normally aim to get you back within a couple of weeks of your photo session.
If you can’t wait that long, you’ll be offered the opportunity of a sneak peek of one of your photographs on Facebook the evening of your photoshoot. Please note that I need your consent to use your images in this manner, so if you have not already opted into this within your contract, you may be asked to complete a model release form.
At your view and order appointment, you’ll be shown a beautiful, customised slideshow of all of your photographs. You’ll be reminded of the packages available and shown the art of the possible when it comes to wall art. And then it’s up to you to choose how you’d like to proceed. There’s never any pressure and, of course, if you don’t fall in love with your photographs, I will happily refund your deposit. Thankfully I can report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs!
Orders are to be made at the view and order session so please make sure all decision makers can attend. I accept cash or debit card and can also offer payment plans if necessary.
We’ll keep an eye on the weather forecast in the days running up to your session and we’ll work together to reschedule if needs be.
If we’re unfortunate enough to experience really poor weather during our session, then we’ll make a call on the day as to whether we wait for the weather to pass or to call it a day. If you’ve had less than three hours of your session, we can arrange to go back out and finish your trail on another day.
I am passionate about helping families across Gloucestershire to celebrate family life but I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a luxury such as professional photography to help them do this. From an early stage in my business, I decided that I would do my bit to support those who can’t, so I chose to donate a portion of all standard packages sold to two charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles and The Family Haven.
You can find out a little more about this here.
I’d love to! But I will never show your photographs to anyone without your consent. When you sign your portrait photography contract, you’ll be asked permission to use photographs from your session for marketing purposes. I know that some people feel uneasy about this until they’ve seen their images and that’s fine. You’re welcome to make up your mind at your view and order session and, if you’re happy for me to share your beautiful images with the world, I’ll simply fill ask you to fill in a model release consent form. And of course, if you’d prefer they stayed private, then that’s absolutely fine as well.
I wrote a blog post which goes into a little more detail about this here.
