Warm, Welcoming & Wonderfully Healing Acupuncturist Refreshes Her Brand - NYC Branding Photographer

Personal branding photography can have a huge impact on your business and your bottom line.  This wonderful Brooklyn acupuncturist took this to heart when she hired me recently.  You can use your branding photographs in several ways:  place them throughout your website, use them in posts on your social media platforms, place them in your newsletters and e-blasts, use them in press releases about an event or new offering you have, refresh your profile pictures every few months so that people see a new image of you, place them in your sales and web-landing pages, submit an image along with your bio when you have a speaking engagement, put one in your email signature and use them in your printed marketing pieces.  Investing in high-quality, authentic photography is required if you want your visuals to play a crucial role in delivering the personality of your brand.

If you are in need of a fantastic healing acupuncturist, reach out to Sarah Rivkin at Park Slope Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs.  If you are in need of new branding photography, please reach out to me at erin@erinsilber.com. 

Branded Portraits are Essential if you want to Elevate your Presence - NYC Professional Headshot Photographer

Its undeniable...2017 was the Year of the Woman!  There was the historic Women's March on Washington (and all the other many cities around the world), the powerful Sally Yates testimony, the #MeToo movement and so much more.  Local Brooklynite Sally Hubbard, an investigative journalist, has been adding her energy to these pro-female efforts for years but has channeled her expertise with her special podcast Women Killing It!  Through interviews and real-life storytelling with the most fascinating women, Sally uncovers how women are killing it in their careers, about what has worked for them, how they got where they are today and what they wish they knew sooner.  

I am pleased to add to Sally's success with my own photography talent.  Recently, she turned to me to refresh her Women Killing It! image.  A personal branding photography session is a very different experience than a traditional headshot session.  It is a modern & authentic way of marketing yourself and your unique services.  I truly think our collaboration was a huge success...we killed it!  I can't wait to see these new branded portraits in 2018 and to see Women Killing It! expand its reach.  Women Killing It! is a mentorship by podcast.  Its a must listen where women are helping women to unleash their superpowers at work!  Please visit Sally's podcast and learn:  http://www.womenkillingit.com/

New Hampshire Coastline Family Perfection - NYC Photographer in Portsmouth, NH

The New Hampshire coastline is always beautiful but this location is enhanced by this wonderful family.  The boys are 4 and 2 - gleefully exploring the world around them.  Their parents are amazed by them and can't believe how lucky they truly are for the family they created.  I love to witness so much family love, laughter and appreciation.

My boys...the Loves of My Life - NYC Kids Photographer

These boys are indeed the loves of my life.  I'm so very thankful for them and that they still allow me photographing them.  This special sunset session was captured along the New Hampshire coastline - near my parents home.  I'm so glad that I will get to continuously marvel at these capture moments when my kids were 12 and 9.  They are growing up way too fast!

Kids in Need - NYC Photographer

It was a wonderful "back to school" experience across NYC on the very first day of school....especially for a wonderful group of Brooklyn school kids I photographed. The kids were gathered in the auditorium and awaited the BIG surprise. To their delight, The Kids In Need Foundation distributed backpacks and school supplies to every child at school. The excitement and smiles were contagious and I was so happy to be apart of it.

The Kids In Need Foundation’s mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. Studies show that when kids have school supplies of their own, classroom behavior and grades improve, self-esteem strengthens, and kids develop better attitudes toward school and learning.
