Branding & Storytelling Photography

I have been privileged to work with Alex on a number of creative projects over the years featuring her brilliant photography for a line of custom luxury jewelry, highly creative model work, and head shots for my clients. She has an eye for photography that one rarely sees—she captures the essence of a person or scene or product in a way that is unique and powerful resulting in just the right message being conveyed for the end purpose. I have challenged Alex on difficult projects and she always shines in unexpected ways.

Image sells everything

Did you know that a huge part of your brain focuses on visual processing which allows you to process images in 100 milliseconds, making images the ideal way to communicate your brand? Did you also know that your audience is making a judgement in 2 seconds when viewing your images online?

The right images create emotion, interest, and, most importantly, establish credibility. The images you show will make or break your brand.

So what is the “right” image for you?

That can only be answered by knowing what questions to ask.

I’ve designed a unique discovery session that asks the right questions so you are guaranteed images that reveal the proper story behind your brand.

Are you ready to get going?

Use Visual Storytelling To Promote Your Brand

Photography is visual storytelling. Photography has the power to communicate exactly who and what you are in the fastest amount of time, connecting your brand to the people you want to serve.

“Alex has an amazing talent of capturing the expressions, thoughts, and personality of the people she photographs so that an entire story is conveyed in just one photograph.

The response from my audience and beyond has been amazing...they WANT to work with me!  I've been told that the photos are captivating, they feel connected to me and my business and made them say, YES!  Thank you, Alex!  I cannot wait to work with you again!”

Our Branding Photoshoot Process

Consultation & Questionnaire

We will discuss the ins and outs of what you want to achieve, who you want to attract, and the best method for doing so. My discovery session will ensure you’re on the right track with your vision for your brand.

Inspiration & Planning

This is where we begin the process of discovering the specific direction, feel, and look of your images. We will discuss locations, lighting, clothing, hair, makeup, props, models, and all the other details that will be relevant for your photoshoot.


Where all the magic happens! We’ll have a fun day of creating the perfect images that inspire and communicate your brand.

Viewing Appointment

You’ll be presented with a collection of edited images to choose from. Once your selections are made, your images will be retouched and delivered to you in your own personal gallery.

Just wanted to tell you how thrilled I am (again) with your recent batch of photos of me for my new website re-do. I was so pleased with your work 10 years ago. You shot the photos for my then new website and marketing efforts. So you’ve done it again, this time adding our dog. Can’t wait to get them out there! 

Like many people, I am not at ease with being on the “subject” end of the camera, but both times you have put me wonderfully at ease. I had no trouble relaxing and the photos definitely showed that! So thanks again for a job well done!

Our Mission

I see what others don’t. Every person, business, and brand has a unique story. It’s communicating that story in the right light that arouses interest. Anyone can take a picture, but not many can artfully curate a picture in a way that stimulates, draws interest, and creates desire. Just another pretty picture won’t get you there, but a picture that makes people stop and take notice will. I’ll create images that are 100% you and your brand in a way that speaks volumes.

Let’s elevate your brand with authentic and impactful images!

About Alex Slattery Photography

Alex Slattery Photography is a Southern California photographer specializing in families and branding.

Connect With Our Brand Photographer

"HIGHLY RECOMMEND Alex Slattery Photography! She did my husband's corporate photo and the choices were so impressive we decided to schedule a session with her for just the two of us. So fun and easy! She helped us plan everything according to our likes and needs. The result was an awesome time doing the photos at a little park and our favorite place...the beach. When the proofs were back, she came to our home and helped us choose the perfect shots and package. A couple of weeks after that, she came back over with the finished (BEAUTIFUL) products. Every time we walk into our home and see those happy pics, we smile and know our kids are probably doing the same when they're looking at their photo gifts. Thank you, Alex!"
- Toni M.

"When my first son was born, I took tons of photos of him, as new parents do, but I wanted some professional photos of him to hang on our wall. I hired a photographer to take these photos, but I wasn't very pleased with the results. I'd dressed my son in an adorable outfit and made the appointment for a time I thought he wouldn't be tired and fussy, but he started to cry during the shoot and the photographer, though friendly, seemed in a rush to finish, and the entire process was not enjoyable.

I didn't hire a professional photographer again until after my second son was born. A friend recommended Alex's services to me, so I gave her a call. I liked her approach even before meeting her. She told me what to do to prepare, not to worry if one or both of the kids were fussy, and that she wanted the shoot to be relaxed. She suggested we shoot in our home and backyard so that the boys felt comfortable in their own environment. She was so great with the kids - she took her time, encouraged me to interact with them, and it was overall a totally low-key, enjoyable experience.

My boys are now 8 and 10, and I've hired Alex to take family photos every year, as well as shoot some other special occasions, and I've given out her info to numerous people. When I see the photos Alex has taken of our family, I love that she's captured the boys' personalities, the joy and love in our family, and that we have beautiful images I will treasure for the rest of my life."
