"A brand has a heart, a business has a product or service"
- Jenna Kutcher
You have a story to tell. That story starts with your "why" and ends with the amazing product or service you offer to your customers. Visuals are a huge part of telling your story, especially in today's digital and disconnected world. But putting yourself out there is hard, especially when you're not used to being in front of the camera. You're tired of looking stiff and uncomfortable in every.single.photo. Ever.
What if you could grab your audience’s attention, with stunning photography that shows off your style and personality? Photos that demonstrate what you do in an engaging way and truly tell a story about you and the experience of working with you?
And even better, photos that aren’t painful to take.
The Difference of Lifestyle Photography for Business
A photo can speak more than a thousand words, illustrating the story of you and your brand. Lifestyle photography is the art of telling your story in real-to-life, natural images. This isn’t your traditional headshot. No awkward poses and forced smiles here; you may not even remember the camera is there.
I offer one base branding package with additional a la carte options that you can mix-and-match to give you the flexibility to build out the package you need for your business. Whether you’re a mom and pop, a local business, or you work exclusively online, you need professional images to use when marketing yourself on your website, social media, and in print.
*Your branding session will include a 30-minute consultation to talk about the shots we want to capture. Together, we’ll start a Pinterest board to save ideas and inspiration then we’ll each add ideas to the board before our shoot. During this consultation, we’ll also discuss shoot locations and clothing options so you feel comfortable and prepared.

"I had been working on my business/blog concept for just a few months before I met Sarah, and I can say with confidence- it all probably would of never left the ground if it wasn’t for her. Her ability to use her raw photography talent in conjunction with her shepherding heart is completely humbling and incredibly inspiring. She has the ability to capture my projects through a priceless lens because she really gets to know people and their true passions-and then she truly believes in them. I cannot thank her enough for helping me hone in what I was offering others, and for helping me make one of my little dreams a reality. - Jena, Owner

"Our experience with Sarah Hoag photography was great! I don’t like to take pictures, lol and she made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She took our team shoots and pictures for our space and even our clients. We absolutely loved them! She is passionate, very professional and attentive to details. We will definitely work with her again in the future and I recommend her service to any small business. She will create an amazing portfolio that will make your business stand out -Margherita, Owner
