Let me introduce you to Masha Dalanay, the powerhouse behind new business solutions company Biz Brainstorming Mentor. Over the summer we worked together to create a set of consistent images for Masha’s new business. Her was developing her website and LinkedIn profile, and was busy planning her social media posts….but needed some impactful business consultant photos!
She’s like a Big Four Consultant, but for Small Businesses
What a management consultant does for a large enterprise, Masha does for your small business. She helps her clients gain clarity about their business, “helping them get unstuck by providing tangible solutions.”
During the planning period with Masha, we discussed her vision for her new business consultant photos, how she wanted her website to look, and the vibe that she wanted to create. The words professional, chic, trustworthy and smart kept popping up.
Shoot day fun
On shoot day, I arrived at Masha’s light and airy apartment in Prangins. Previously, we had decided to do the session at Masha’s home because she had many different possible locations. Lots of options for a variety of photos all in one place – the dream setting for a branding photographer!
Masha sat back and enjoyed a professional makeover provided by Jacqueline Gaspers. During this time, She rocked out to her favourite music playlist, while I planned the flow of the photo session. I selected the best outfits and accessories based on her branding colours (navy blue and coral), and what styles were most flattering for her.
New Business Consultant Photos coming up!
Masha’s wonderful husband made us a lovely Turkish coffee and even went out to buy some pastries for us – talk about amazing hospitality! When Masha was ready, it was go-time to create her business consultant photos! We spent 20 minutes with each outfit in various locations, including some time outside. To wrap it up, we also took a few photographs of Masha with her husband, as well as some new professional headshots for his LinkedIn profile. Got to make the most of every opportunity while you have it!
What Masha said after her photo shoot…
It was great fun to work with you and your team. I felt like a real model and loved being the center of attention (which I usually don’t). I love the photos and everyone who sees them is very enthusiastic!Masha Dalanay, small business consultant, Prangins
Can Masha help you with your business?
When you read Masha’s own description of what she does, you’ll see why she wanted to be portrayed in this way:
“I am a Business Fixer/Solutions Designer for women entrepreneurs. I want to empower women to take their business further by helping them manage the non-core business side of their business. I’m passionate about changing the world, and one extremely impactful way to do that is to empower and put more money in the hands of women.”
Masha’s ideal client is “a female entrepreneur who is great at what she does and she knows her core business. However, she is lost/stuck/overwhelmed by the “business” side of the business. She needs clarity to proceed, to know whether to pivot or grow, and how to grow. She also needs more free time for her family.”
