We're Erica + Jon, professional photographers, Mr + Mrs and Mom + Dad. We like to share insights into our industry, behind the scenes and stories about our life and chips + salsa obsession.
One of our favorite things about being brand photographers? The amazing people we get to work with and the variety of the types of content we are blessed to be able to photograph! Every client, project, and goal is unique and we love being able to bring our client’s vision to life. Once in a while, we work with personal brands, like this recent session with our new friend and recent client, Bobby Seitz. Personal brand shoots are refreshing as planning is more straightforward and we get to focus on showcasing our client’s interests and personality.
Bobby is a local influencer that focuses on bringing value to others in the areas of fashion, fitness, motivation, and mentorship! We set out to find a venue for his lifestyle focused session that was masculine and refined and found the perfect place at The Black House by Knob Modern Design! We loved the rich, dark colors and the contrast compared to many of the light and bright venues we normally shoot in.
Bobby is a natural in front of the camera and seemed to respond to our instruction before we were able to speak it out loud! And in addition to being an easy model, he was a great catch too! Just as we were about to wrap our time together Erica stood on a wooden stump to grab one final photo. That’s when it happened – she lost her balance on the uneven stump and started to fall with camera in hand! Thankfully, Bobby was there to break her fall and was the first to mark a time one of us has fallen on the job and in front of a client!! Unfortunately, our camera wasn’t so lucky. :/
Take a look at some of the highlights from our session together below, and go give Bobby a follow on Instagram!
