Alonna Donovan Makinson started her own private practice called Life Tree Counseling and asked me to take pictures of her new space, her therapy pups and of course her on location in Springfield, Ohio
I know that spring is supposed to be the time of new beginnings. For me, fall brings the beginning of school, my busiest photography season and for a lot of my friends fresh starts in their own business too. I loved checking out her space for individual counseling, super cozy. We also went a skip and a hop over to a courtyard where we sat and caught up on the benches. Which was perfect because it was a perfect day and I always enjoy chatting more outdoors.
I have known Alonna as a friend and as a clinician for years and definitely would recommend her. She specializes in Sex-positive therapy, Wellness counseling, Relationship issues, Couples counseling,LGBTQ, CNM/Poly and Animal assisted therapy at her practice Life Tree Counseling in Springdale, ohio.
I have known Jacquelin both as a friend and professionally for years at Compass Point. I worked directly with her to serve her clients. So when she told me that she was starting her own private practice I was so excited. I know she is an awesome and real person. Good inside and out. :D
We met up in her gorgeous new office for a branding session. But seriously check out her space - It could not be more therapeutic for a Kristin, there is a greenhouse.
Jacquelin specializes in Couple Counseling, Marriage Counseling, Depression, Anxiety, Therapy, LGBTQ, Therapist, Emotionally Focused Therapy and EFT. Learn more on her website. :D
You know all of the lovely pictures that the artists, writers, and creators in your life that have bomb feeds? There is probably a photographer chillin behind a lens to make those happen :P
But seriously. There is so much work that goes on behind the scenes of running a business in this social media driven world. Since people love interacting directly with small businesses it is important to keep audiences engaged and share quality images of you to pair with your copy/story/ad/blog. Speaking of....I probably need to schedule one of these for myself since you might forget what I look like :P

I always love meeting up with Olivia from Baubles to Bubbles. This time we explored Smale Park at the river front and I may have done a happy dance when we found these rose bush installations because they went so well with her gorgeous lace dress. I always show up in my jeans and tanks top knotted but feel dress just being like yo this is my friend. LOL
As always head on over to her blog to see more Olivia and pictures from out past sessions.
What type of session is this?
One of my favorite things that I have started doing is hanging out with other bloggers, creatives and influencers to work on branding for their social media and websites.
It is so important to have a solid head shot to stand out from the crowd, but now with instagram and blogging the content that you need to turn out like Bomb Outfit of the days or corporate campaigns if you are Olivia (helllooo wardrobe changes), detail shots of you working and your product if you are a creative, or other peoples products if you are an influencer.
Think of your favorite company. What words do you use to describe them. What colors come to mind? Can you picture their logo. That is their brand. I help create that through images. So that it all stays cohesive.
If you're the kinda girl that will walk in two inches of water in stilettos to get to the middle of the fountains for a shot - you're my kinda girl.
LEARN MORE ABOUT OLIVIA
Hello! My name is Olivia Johnson, and I am a twenty-something living in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincinnati is where I was born and raised, other than the four years I spent attending the University of Dayton.
Baubles to Bubbles came about in 2012, the same year I graduated college with a journalism and marketing degree. While navigating the tough job market and trying to figure out what career path I wanted to take, I decided to put my degree to use and start a fashion blog. Little did I know, it was going to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
When my camera is charging you can find me playing with my little family or trying yummy new foods around the city.
I promise to tell horrible jokes and will probably be more awkward than you, but by the end of the day we will all be laughing. Which is how I get the real natural smiles that you see in my portfolio!
