Part II: Branding Images You Need for Your Website as an Interior Designer
On-Site Unfinished Project
The Client: Robyn Niederegger
The Business: Robyn Niederegger Interior Design
A little about her and her business:
Robyn is a Seattle based interior design firm specializing in renovations, new construction and full service designs.
I first met Robyn at my Q1 lifestyle headshot event in Woodinville, this is the perfect opportunity for businesses to meet me and get an idea of what it is like to work with me. However, these are quick turnaround times, so you don’t get the full personalized service like when you work with me one on one.
For Robyn’s photoshoot she wanted to photograph the unfinished project of her house in Seattle Queen Anne, WA. She wanted to feature the involvement she has in every part of her design projects. Robyn just doesn’t come in at the end and do the last pieces of the design space, but works from tear down, build up to finished rooms and final touches.
BELOW ARE 3 TYPES OF on-Site Project Photos AN INTERIOR DESIGNER NEEDS FOR THEIR WEBSITE (AND SOCIAL MEDIA).
Outside or Exterior Lifestyle Style Photos
Not all photos need to be inside for your business. You can take photos outside, around the neighborhood and on the porch. Then you can also choose the outfits for these, dress it up more than the indoor ones or keep it more casual.
Interior Lifestyle Headshots
These photos are using the interior of the unfinished house. This unfinished house can be at any stage, from fully barebones to having drywall and photographing some of the installation process, painting etc. Optimize where the house is at and the projects that still need to be done within the house. Let's use the space, the windows, doors and the frame of the house to our advantage to get you other types of lifestyle headshot photos for your brand.
Depending on where your unfinished project is on that day are the types of things we’d photograph. Think of what you would come in and do? Maybe you're taking measurements, holding up tile samples, putting paint samples on the walls, or maybe you’re even installing some of the small pieces. You could also be managing the installers, talking with your team and discussing final touches. There are a lot of in action stories that could be photographed at an unfinished house designing project.
We can also plan to take photos to one of your suppliers, maybe the place you go to select your countertops for your clients, or the paint store and selecting the paint or any other supply store that you go to for your clients. However, for these store locations we do need to get pre-approval to take photos within their shop. Many business owners (especially if you already have a working relationship with them) are more than willing to let you come in and take photos, provided we don't disrupt the other customers.
This four part interior design blog post photo ideas are for the other businesses that also want to share this story and piece of their design projects. There are a few ways to do all of these different parts when you work with me. One, I can come in at different stages of the same project and spread it throughout the year. Or option two is to use multiple spaces in one day and go to one of your unfinished projects and then to a finished project.
