Personal branding is more than your logo, typography, colour palette, or yes…even your photography. Personal branding is your values, your reason for being in business (or your why), your niche, your offerings and how you offer it. 

Personal brands are, well…personal. You are the face of your brand.

I help creatives and freelancers show up online in a non-cheese, non-cringe, non-performative way as the face of their brand.

I work with creative business owners to build and grow their online presence in a way that feels good to them.

What Clients Say

some nice words from people

"Working with Elle was so much fun - I was a bit awkward to start with but Elle totally put me at ease and we laughed so much throughout the session."

Kat Nicholls
"I'm obsessed with the photos, and so is my community. I've had friends and clients literally stopping me on the street, emailing me, texting me, telling me how much they love the photos and how they capture my personality."
