Personal branding shoot experience with Cristina Stoian
YOUR PERSONAL BRAND IS IMPORTANT.
You are already a brand. Everyone is. Even if you don’t always feel it…
WHETHER A SMALL BUSINESS, A SINGLE PROFESSIONAL, OR A CREATIVE – YOUR PERSONAL BRAND MATTERS.
Casual photographs (like ‘selfies’) aren’t right in many places nowadays, and to move onto the next level, you might need something that captures you naturally, professionally, with your best side on show for all to see. A professional portraiture session lets you be the star of the show, the face in the ‘ones to watch’ magazine. It lets you show those talents that are most definitely there.
You and I direct the scene, we capture the public face, and we get to work in a relaxed, fun place that lets the inner you shine. This is an experience that will really matter, and may just get you earning the million dollars you feel during the shoot.
First, let me dispel some myths:
Professional shots can still be good-looking natural photographs.
You can use a photo that captures your energy, as if a friend were taking the photo, on a bright sunny day.
Your personal brand does matter, even if you’re just starting out. It gives you that edge.
LET ME CAPTURE YOUR BEST SIDE, PROFESSIONALLY.

PS I will take a good natural looking photograph. One that’s as if your best friend were capturing your energy on a bright sunny day. That’s what I do.

More about the Cristina Stoian personal branding shoot experience
Once we’ve met and you’re ready for a shoot, it’s the chance for us to plan everything – it can be as creative or straightforward as you’d like. This is not a place where you need to feel scared of a having ‘bad photo’, but rather somewhere you feel comfortable with everything, partly because you have planned it with me.
As a portrait photographer, it’s my role to capture that inner winning brand inside of all of us. You could call it your true essence. You don’t have to do anything except just be who you were meant to. Through fun, relaxation and coaching from me we let the magic happen, until we end with a photo that says, ‘successful, winning,’ or simply ‘hire me’.
Social media has made all of us aware that we have to show a certain side to people – why would you be so careful on Facebook and not on your own personal websites or social media channels? It’s a question more people should ask. Good photography on a site, Linkedin profile or even Twitter page definitely ups your saleability and shows that you are a professional with a determination to succeed.

“OUR DEEPEST FEAR IS NOT THAT WE ARE INADEQUATE. OUR DEEPEST FEAR IS THAT WE ARE POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE. IT IS OUR LIGHT NOT OUR DARKNESS THAT MOST FRIGHTENS US. WE ASK OURSELVES, WHO AM I TO BE BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?
If you’re still reading this and are feeling apprehensive, then I have one last thing to tell you. I’ve worked with many different women whose fears are basically the same:
I’m not good enough
I don’t look good on camera
I need to lose weight before you take photos of me
I HATE having my photo taken
I look old nowadays…
The list could go on and on. Let me reassure you that these fears and more have been dispelled with a set of amazing photographs that most definitely do show your best side off (professionally and otherwise) to the world.

Cristina is a natural professional in photography. How often do you see yourself in a picture thinking: “my god is this really me?” Cristina’s ability to catch the moment of true personal happiness gives me that natural and fresh professional picture that I like to present to the world.Athalie Stegeman
Cristina is a great person to work with. She did a photo shoot for me for the Xpat Journal and also for my website and social media. I was extremely happy with the end result: the photo’s. She also delivered it timely and more than we initially agreed. During the photo shoot she put me immediately at ease, she was professional & friendly at the same time. Most importantly people loved the photo’s Cristina took of me.” August 24, 2011Dorota Klop-Sowinska
Cristina was responsible for my professional photo in the recent CRAVE Amsterdam book. The shoot was truly a pleasurable experience, considering I don’t like having my photo taken! She made me feel so at ease and knew exactly what background and style of image would be suitable, including what was my best side! Since then I’ve gone on to recommend Cristina to friends and business relations, as I believe she is one of the best photographers in Amsterdam.Zena Hockley
Cristina knows how to capture the very essence of a person in a photograph. She is extremely professional and goes the extra mile to make sure she gets the shot. And in addition to all of that, she’s a blast to work with.Stephanie Ward
Cristina is amazing — she really captured the essence of what I wanted to convey. She was creative, flexible, and knew exactly where to take me. She also connected me to my favorite hair & make-up stylist! Cristina is wonderful and I highly recommend her! February 10, 2014Allison Hamilton-Rohe
I have worked together with Cristina several times on Photography projects. Besides the superb outcome, Cristina is an accurate professional with high sense of responsibility that made our collaboration a great experience. Moreover, Cristina is a driven entrepreneur and this is what makes her different from the competition.
Thus, I highly recommend Cristina for any type of photography project and any type of project she might be involved with. February 6, 2014
Cristina helped me to make photo’s for my web site. She has been able to create the photo’s that explain the atmosphere and personality that goes with the services I provide. Thank you Cristina and hope to work with you again in the future!
