you're booking sessions, but not the ones you want

you feel a disconnect from your shooting & editing style

you feel stuck & far away from growth

some thoughts on your brand

"I had Nikki refresh my website after my business took a huge shift towards boudoir, and she executed everything I wanted and more!!! The branding she designed embodied my mission + message EXACTLY. My website is inviting & full of information to make sure my ideal clients are taken care of before they even reach out."

A brand & web designed from an authentic identity not only attracts those clients that share the same values as you, it allows for flexibility as your business grows and evolves. You might be offering photography to families, couples, newborns, you-name-it, but you dream of business that travels the world for elopements and love stories. Inquiries from your dream clients aren't going to come unless you're talking directly to them & your (authentic) brand is responsible for that.

at Nikita Banana Co, every package starts with a brand identity workshop, because a resilient design that is authentic to you doesn't just come from thin air. 

Would your ideal clients book a session with you if your brand isn't accurately communicating your values?

Yes, Authentic Branding Matters more.

It's connects your business to your clients. //
it's what communicates your business' values & purpose.

Yes, Branding Matters.

INQUIRE HERE

After inquiring you can expect to receive an email from me within the next business day that has a link to book a discovery call (don't worry, if you're not a talk-on-the-phone kinda person, I've got you covered with a discovery questionnaire). We will chat it up so I can create your custom project proposal, followed by your contract and invoice. All projects require a 25% (non-refundable) deposit to book. 

Once our project is official, we kick things off with welcome guides & calls (or emails!!) to prep for your project Start Date. When your Start Date comes around, we have a bunch comin', summarized below:

PROCESS

BRAND IDENTITY SUITE: 5 to 6 weeks
BRAND IDENTITY & WEB DESIGN SUITE: 10 to 12 weeks
MINI BRAND IDENTITY & WEB DESIGN: 8 to 10 weeks

Waiting Time: Typically, my clients book one to three months in advance. So, I do recommend that once the idea of branding comes to your head, start researching and inquiring!

Project Timeline: Project timelines are estimates based on past projects as well as the time necessary to create high-quality designs. I typically have three active clients at a time, but offer an expedited timeline where I work with JUST YOU so we get this thang done in about half the time (additional fee required).

Timeline

TYPICAL PAYMENT PLAN
Deposit (At Booking) - 25%
Start Date - 25%
1 Month Following your Start Date - 25%
2 Months Following your Start Date - 25%

I understand this is a big investment, and so every project is created with a customized payment plan. All projects require a 25% (non-refundable) deposit to book.

Payment plans

This is one of my BIGGEST questions; what happens after I launch my site? In ALL packages, I provide a training walkthrough custom to your Showit site. I go over the structure of Showit (I get it, there are a lot of buttons), how to make basic edits (e.g., changing photographs or text), as well as navigating Wordpress if you have a blog! I do understand that even with the training, it can be intimidating (and time consuming), which is also why I offer my past brand & web clients a post launch support package - the Brand BFF. This is where I go into your website (whether it be semi-annually or quarterly) and update content as well as complete brand pulse checks. While I always design brand to be flexible, as ALL BUSINESSES CHANGE AND EVOLVE, the Brand BFF post-launch support package means I will always be there to ensure that your brand and website communicate your business purpose and goals, even as it changes.

Post Launch Support

Every package starts with the brand identity workshop, as designing a logo and/or website based on your short term goals is not sustainable. Every business goes through expected AND UNEXPECTED changes. Your brand and website should last years, and that's not achievable without a SOLID foundation, aka your brand identity.

The brand identity workshop starts with a four module questionnaire that dives deep into your values, purpose, goals, and ideal client. I review the questionnaire for impact and depth and then we hop on a call to chat about it all (or I send over the reviewed workbook with my comments and questions). By the end of the brand identity workshop, you will have a solid UVP (Unique Value Proposition), established from YOU and for your IDEAL CLIENT. Then that's when we move onto brand design!

Brand Identity Workshop

All packages include certain deliverables that are necessary to communicate your brand to your ideal client. This includes the full brand identity workshop, your logos, color palette, and font selection, your brand strategy and design guide, your desktop and mobile web design (if investing in a web package), and your training handoff. These "base" deliverables are the essentials to setting your business up for success. However, every one of my clients have unique needs, and that's where the customization comes in. This may include additional logo designs, pattern design, business card and stationery design, Instagram highlights, an e-commerce shop, a blog, a sub-business (such as boudoir within a larger photography studio).  During our discovery call or questionnaire, we determine what your unique business needs are, and design a package from there.

ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

"MY WEBSITE IS EVERYTHING I NEVER KNEW I NEEDED. IT WAS SERIOUSLY LIKE SHE WAS INSIDE MY BRAIN."

want to see how I've captured past photog + Film brands?

I have a positive relationship with change. We nor our environment are  static; everything changes, constantly. Change can be scary, as it is the unknown; try to adjust (or change hehe) your perspective. Change is growth. We only grow skills and establish values when presented with a change in our environment, whether that environmental shift is self-brought or not. Once you stop trying to control the inevitability of change and start demanding it, you'll flourish in your growth & so will your business. Your dream travel loving clients aren't going to book a photographer who only advertises a local studio; you won't get that travel session on your portfolio if you don't put yourself out there.  Demand change, allow your business to grow into new and exciting areas!!!
