The Lansing Studio Branding + Headshot Photography with Nurses

Studio branding photos with hospice nurses by Allie & Co. Photography in Lansing, Michigan

Centered Care offers in-home healthcare, which is close to my heart since my brother spent most of his life with some level of in-home care after being diagnosed with metachromatic leukodystrophy at age six. So naturally, I was excited to get to spend a full afternoon with a group of amazing (and hilarious) nurses to celebrate the new purchase of the company and help them to build out some branding photographs and head shots for the team to use on their website and in marketing materials.

After they filled out my Story Session questionnaire, we decided to spend a few hours in the studio before heading on site to capture staff at work, along with the beloved patients who gave permission for their images to be shared.

Michigan State University Graduation Pictures on North Campus

Michigan State University graduation pictures on north campus in the fall with red and orange leaves, including photo with Sparty

Abbey scheduled her Michigan State University graduation pictures for the fall to capture fall colors and to celebrate her 21st birthday (it happened that her grad photos were on her actual birthday, so she went out to celebrate right after we were done with photos).

I’ve noticed that fall is becoming more and more popular for graduation pictures, even for those who graduate in the Spring. It’s such a great time for photos—the angle of the sun is basically perfect at every location, and the fall colors look amazing (although fall colors took their sweet time this year, so that’s not always a guarantee). And the biggest advantage of all? No huge crowds.

While I saw other seniors out and about taking photos during nice weather this fall, it was nothing compared to the crowds that are usually out in late April and early May when we sometimes have to wait 45 minutes at a single location on campus.

Commercial Photography: Zeke the Wonder Dog + Graduate East Lansing

Commercial photography image of Zeke the Wonder Dog sitting on a green velvet couch at Graduate Hotel in East Lansing, Michigan, by Allie Siarto & Co., branding photographers

I first started chatting with Abby, a Marketing Manager at Graduate Hotels, about branding photo opportunities for the hotel last March. We were originally talking about about taking photos of MSU graduating seniors at Graduate East Lansing’s rooftop bar overlooking campus around Spring graduation week, but Covid impacted the hotel launch (like it does)—so Abby changed gears and set up our first photo shoot with Zeke the Wonder Dog.

I’ve worked with a lot of dogs over the years, and a lot of them have been extremely well behaved (don’t worry—plenty of dogs have been far less than perfect, and we’ve still gotten great shots of them). But Zeke’s training is at a whole other level, and I have so much respect for the time it must have taken to get him to this level.

But even the best trained dog will keep you on your toes during a photo shoot. Patience only lasts so long when you’re a pup, so I had to act fast to create a set of photos for Graduate East Lansing to use on Instagram and in other marketing materials.

Branding Photography – Approachable Headshots for a Therapist

Lansing headshot photographer with personal branding photo of a friendly therapist on a white background

Alexis came to me looking for branding photos for her new therapy practice. Therapists are often judged based on how approachable their images look online, so it was important to get these headshots just right.

Alexis wanted a mix of headshots and photos that would show off what she’s like at work—meeting clients digitally. We were able to get a huge mix of photos in the studio in a short time, and Alexis ended up choosing twenty to use for her business.

Brand Color Palette

I recommend that all of my branding photo clients have a color palette going into the session. It helps to drive the session design and the outfits that you’ll wear. Alexis sent me the color board above—she was was focused on white and forest green, which appeared throughout most of her images in white walls, white backdrops, and plants (we did also utilize the existing blue-green wall in the studio for a few photos, although the color wasn’t exact).
