If you run your own coaching business, you probably know that now more than ever, coaches need personal branding photos. Whether you’re a life coach, business coach, social media coach, or health & wellness coach, everyone in this industry can benefit from branding photography.
In this blog post, I’ve compiled galleries of some brand photo ideas for people in the coaching industry. I’ve also included a list of prop ideas, as well as a list of where you can be using your brand photos in your coaching business.
Sounds good? Let’s jump right in!
Coaching brand photoshoot props
Props can make or break a photoshoot. When you’re brainstorming props for your coaching brand photos, consider what you use on a daily basis. Also, think about how you onboard new clients, as well as any tools that you use or that you recommend your clients use.
Here is a list of prop ideas to help you brainstorm what to bring to your own photoshoot:
- Office supplies and desk decor
- Worksheets, templates, and workbooks that you include in your coaching program
- Client gifts (candles, branded notebooks, books)
- Your favorite or recommended self-improvement books
- Items from your self-care routine
Where to use your brand photos
You should take full advantage of your brand photoshoot by using the photos across multiple platforms. Cohesive, professional imagery is important to establish a brand identity online. I recommend using them in all of the following places, if you have them:
- Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media
- Your website
- Sales pages
- Business cards
- PDF onboarding guides and pitch decks
- Speaker pages
- Lead magnets
- YouTube thumbnails
