Brand photography that allows you to stand out from the crowd with intentional photos that create a powerful visual identity 

Attract your ideal clients with consistent images that feel like you and make you money.

A brand photoshoot isn’t just a collection of pretty photos — it’s so much more. Just like branding is much more than just colors and logos, it’s how you want people to feel. 

Brand photography looks at your business as a whole and as an integral part of your marketing strategy so you can attract your ideal client with custom, targeted photography designed to help you reach your business goals. It offers your customers an intimate look into the story behind your business while creating a connection on a deeper level.

Our brand session will equip you with intentional images that provide a visual representation of what you do, who you serve, and your unique personality that makes you stand out.

When we work together, you’ll have a digital gallery of images that map to your key messages and you’ll be able to plan your marketing in advance (instead of in the moment) with bright and clean photos that are timeless and capture your ideal client’s attention in a millisecond.

It’s time to stand out and sell in an elevated way. 



Hi, I’m Linda Carnell, founder of Brand and Bloom Photography, based in Winston Salem, NC & available worldwide.

I take a different approach to brand photography than most — every single session is customized to your exact needs according to your aesthetic, messaging, and business goals. 

When you work with me, you’re not only getting a professional photographer, you’re also gaining access to my 30+ years of marketing experience that helps us create strategic content for your business with every click of my camera so you can start using attraction-based marketing in your business to increase your income.

High-quality, consistent branded photos are imperative to bringing your brand to life, and that’s exactly what we create together. I can’t wait to meet you and help you grow your business!

My process guarantees results.

Linda was absolutely fantastic to work with! I reached out at the last minute to shoot a real estate closing and she immediately relieved the stress I had around having someone capture the day. Linda was professional, responsive, and extremely detailed. She asked about the props I had and brought many of her own. I could tell Linda was passionate about capturing the right moments and getting the best quality photograph with every shot. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone looking for a wonderful photographer no matter the subject. Thanks again, Linda! You are awesome!

She really went BEYOND “above and beyond”.

Paris Williford, Realtor, Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices

I was impressed with her from our very first conversation. She was so structured and knowledgeable and really helped me to think about how I want my business to be perceived. She gave me insight on ways to see my business from the perspective of a potential client and how I can work to make my business stand out. Not only did I gain amazing images to help me market my business in a more appealing way, I feel I have gained a friend. 

Linda was an absolute joy to work with!


Linda and I took on an ambitious project with multiple locations and many moving parts. She was professional, personable and responsive and captured many beautiful photographs for my new website and social media. 

Highly recommend to other small business owners who want to update their branding.

Sheila Smith, Laughing Dog Pet Sitters

She is so talented, warm and makes everything about a photoshoot fun and relaxing. I couldn’t recommend her more highly and will definitely use her in the future for personal and business shoots!

What an incredible experience it was working with Linda.

Linda was fabulous to work with!

Christy Bellis, Explore Winston Salem

She took meticulous notes beforehand to help understand who I am and what I do so we could make that come across in photos. I am so happy with her attention to detail, professionalism and talent as a photographer. I would highly recommend her services!!

Linda captured me and my store beautifully! 

Janet Gilmour, The Uptique Boutique

She totally understood the vibe I was going for in my new professional headshots and made me feel like a “boss babe” in her own words. :) Thank you Linda for capturing me and my mom so well!

Linda made me feel so at ease and captured some of my favorite photos of myself ever!

Rose O’Brien, Harvard University

I love her energy! She made me feel very comfortable and at ease during my photography shoot. She went above and beyond to provide me with a quality and individualized experience. She was involved every step of the way to make my day a success. I do plan on booking her in the future and I highly recommend her photography services!

Linda is such a great photographer!

Netasha Clark, Set goals 2 reach goals

I needed personal branding photos for my new business. Linda is amazing. She was able to determine what I was looking for even though I couldn’t quite get it out of my own head. I work with small business owners and I am going to encourage them to use Linda for their personal branding needs. I know there are a lot of photographers out there but she is so much MORE than that. She is the only person who has made me enjoy the experience and capture the real me!

She is the only photographer I have EVER had that took the time to pre-work and get to know ME

MaryAnn Molloy, Life Coach, The Rest Of Your Life

It’s time to authentically tell your business story.

And stock photos and selfies just don’t cut it anymore with so much noise in the online world.

They’re both missing the mark in communicating your value to your potential customers because stock photos are overused and ​​let’s face it, very few people can take a good photo of themselves (myself included!) because it’s hard to put yourself in the photo when you’re also the photographer.

These images don’t represent your unique business and not to mention thousands of people could be using the exact same stock images as you on a daily basis! 

All these non-branded photos do is create inconsistent visual branding and it’s turning off your potential clients because you’re not building a strong visual identity or creating the know, like, and trust factor with your audience — that’s part of the reason why brand photography is so important. 

Most of my clients come to me without a visual content strategy or business plan for growth which leads to them blending into the crowd — the photos we create have an opposite effect.

It’s time to stand out with a collection of custom, on-brand visual content.

Here’s how we will do it:
