Downtown Franklin Branding Session for Tonya Stout

When I say that Tonya is a powerhouse, I absolutely mean it. This woman is incredible and I feel so honored she asked me to photograph her Downtown Franklin branding session! Tonya was a songwriter in Nashville until she made a major career shift. Now, she’s working to help investors boost their cap rate through Airbnb design. Tonya is absolutely brilliant and we knew we wanted to show her style and strength throughout her branding portraits.

Tonya helps Airbnb owners create epic designs that help them return their investment at a higher rate than their competitors. She’s got an incredible eye for bringing rooms to life with lots of personality. So, it was important for me to create images that felt equally as eye-catching. Tonya works with a mostly cold market online and making an impact matters! With that in mind, we began our session walking around Downtown Franklin and capturing Tonya at a few spots that really fit her vibe. Afterwards, we headed to an Airbnb to capture more portraits of Tonya working. She loves designing kitchens, so we made sure to photograph her in one! I loved getting photos of her working and looking at various design elements, too. 

One of the reasons I think we were really able to capture Tonya’s brand is because she worked hard to explain herself, her brand, her vibe, and her vision. Each of my clients gets a questionnaire before our session and I promise, it’s SO important to fill out! If you’re planning a professional branding session, my piece of advice is to give your photographer everything you can about your brand and vision. It helps us create the images you’re dreaming of! 

Tonya, thank you again for all of your hard work to bring this session into life. I love all of your portraits and I can’t wait to see how you grow this incredible new brand online!
