De Baec Candles Branding Photography

De Baec Candles branding photography session!

I first learned about Jessica, the woman behind the artisanal candle company De Baec Candles, last October. I fell in love with Jessica’s beautiful candles when Gather with Mimi used them in our Golden Gardens styled shoot. After that session, Jessica and I connected. Then, later, I was able to help her with her very first branding photoshoot!

Recently, I launched a new branch of my business aimed at supporting photographers and other small businesses. I now offer brand photography and content creation packages for businesses and personal brands! My favorite part of shooting branding photos is working with other small businesses and supporting their growth! Using my business owner experience and photography expertise, I want to take the stress of branding and content creation off your plate so you can stay focused on what you do best.

De Baec Candles, based in Bainbridge, WA, creates the most amazing handmade candles. Jessica hand-pours each candle and uses only premium materials. Her designs feature stunning textures and have such a unique aesthetic! As well as being beautiful, De Baec candles are dedicated to giving back to the community. By 2024, Jessica aims to donate 3% of all profits to programs that support mothers and children.

When we first talked through the details of this De Baec candles branding photography session, Jessica and I discussed the shots she wanted and her overall aesthetic. She sent me some inspirational photos and gave me a small shot list to work from, but she also gave me a lot of creative freedom. On shoot day, Jessica brought along all the props we needed. Then, we worked together and collaboratively styled her items.

I shot Jessica’s photos in digital, but I also got some iPhone BTS footage and content for her to use in reels. (Both of my content creation packages include iPhone content creation during your session!) As we shot, I made sure none of her images felt too posed or inauthentic. Ultimately, we got a mix of detail photos and organic headshots that fully represent Jessica’s brand!
