You deserve great photos and so does your business.
Hi, my name is Madison with Madison Avery Studio. I’m a photographer and I help professionals connect with clients while increasing their visibility and brand awareness.
Can you think of a business that has changed your life for the better?
Perhaps it was the realtor who helped you find your dream home.
Or the restaurant where you reliably bring clients, knowing the food and service will always be excellent.
Maybe it’s the therapist who makes life feel more manageable or the dog trainer who finally figured out how to prevent your dog from peeing on the rug.
My mission is to help people remember, like and trust your business.
My own life was transformed through my engagement with a local business. A few years back, I knew I needed to start exercising but there was one big problem. I was not an exercise person.
A friend invited me to join her for a few yoga classes at a local studio and I figured it couldn’t hurt. I liked the classes enough but it was a struggle to motivate myself to go.
Thankfully, I had followed the studio on instagram and they kept showing up in my feed. I saw poses I could only dream of achieving but also regular people, like myself.
I met their instructors and learned about their community. The added value I began to see from those photos, along with encouragement from my friend, inspired me to keep trying.
I thought “maybe one day I can look that cool and also be part of their community.”
Spoiler alert, it worked. I continue to patronize that same studio years later and their photos still inspire me. That’s the power of photography.
Can your clients find you and do they remember you?
Unless you have more business than you can handle, you might be struggling with a lack of visibility.
Professional, on-brand photos help you stand out from the competition while connecting with your future clients. They tell the story of your business so people remember you when they need your product or service.
At minimum, you need an updated, professional headshot every 2-3 years. For maximum effect, you should be showing your face and your business multiple times a week.
How will I use my photos?
Put your photo in your email signature, on your LinkedIn profile, and on your business card.
Send out a weekly newsletter with images and a relevant insight. People connect to faces and stories.
Tell the story of what makes you different, of why clients love working with you or of how you got started. Show the human behind the business and you will be remembered.
What if I hate having my photo taken?
I understand that having your photo taken can be a stressful and anxiety inducing event. I personally detest being photographed. But since it’s no longer optional, I make the experience as effortless and uncomplicated as possible.
For example, my clients are often unsure about what to wear. To ease their anxiety, I provide complimentary in-home style consultations designed to help you choose attire that will be most flattering to you on camera.
During the session, I help you relax by lightening the mood and diverting your focus from the task at hand. This helps us capture a genuine expression in a photo you are proud to share.
Can't I just use my logo or show pictures of my product?
No matter your business or industry, people ultimately connect to and do business with other people. YOU are your greatest business asset, don't hide in the shadows.
You deserve to look your very best every day. You'll never be 100% ready, so don't delay.
If you’re ready to look great, increase your visibility, and connect with more clients in a memorable and authentic way, schedule a call now. Your audience needs your help, can you afford to make them wait?

How I got here
In 2011, my dad, who is an amateur photographer himself, gave me his old camera. It was love at first sight. I became obsessed with photography and haven't looked back since.
In 2014 I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with my degree in Studio Art with my focus in Photography.
Shortly after graduating, I began my business in Austin, Tx. Since then I have been fortunate to photograph a wide variety of subjects. I love photographing people most of all. Photography connects people to solutions, to resources and to each other.
I help others succeed through connection, making the world a better place.
