Are you ready to look incredible to your potential clients?

Professional business photos make a difference

Personal brands center around you as an individual and your specific vibe. How each person expresses their brand is unique, from color schemes to vocal tones. Personal brand photography sets out to capture these perfectly.

Personal brand photography is as unique as your business. We’ll discuss the best backdrops for your specific brand during your consultation, along with the best props to bring along.

The value you get from a personal brand photography session is not entirely quantifiable. You can use them in everything from social media to brochures, and you’ll know they represent the values, ideals, and vibe you want all the time. That kind of peace of mind is hard to come by.

At Big Island Portraits and BrandingI  offer quality business photography and video for a variety of different industries. Create a professional image on your website, marketing materials, and social media.

This incredible opportunity includes:

  • A personal wardrobe and planning consultation
  • A private guided photoshoot with multiple sets
  • One complimentary digital image file
  • Your story featured on our website and social media channels
  • inclusion in our Success looks like you! magazine
  • An in-person reveal and ordering appointment
  • two tickets to our end of campaign networking event

Spots will fill quickly for this amazing event.

Your brand through imagery

Why I chose to photograph entrepreneurs

I started my portrait business 12 years ago and realized quickly how important it is to have fresh and flattering imagery for a business!

Whether you need new headshots and branding shots for business cards, newsletter content, printed materials refresh, blog posts or social media – we can get you a great library of images to use for a variety of platforms.

My goal is to feature local businesses and entrepreneurs as we are the backbone of the community!

Aloha!  I'm Virginia Chavez Smith

How do you want to be photographed?

What about your Hawaii Brand?  Your Hawaii Business?

How do you imagine the best that you have to offer, in images?

Trust that you can be photographed at your most amazing by Virginia Chavez Smith of Big Island Portraits and Branding.

I can change the way you see yourself!  I can change the way others see your business in Hawaii!

The studio is located in Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii

“I love people and the beauty of life, I'm passionate about the common journey of our dreams, hopes, accomplishments, struggles and pain. Real life and emotion in raw, honest photography and fine art with heart and's a beautiful thing!"

Virginia Chavez Smith, a branding strategist and fine art photographer on the Big Island of Hawaii.

"I shoot film and digital images for adventurous people who love life and are eager to try new things, who love the differences in people yet find their Ohana in those who laugh at themselves, in lame jokes told enthusiastically, celebrating life's joys, challenges and the irony of life. 

Isn't that the Aloha spirit the island people have appreciated for generations?

I could tell you that I've won many awards and have been featured in magazines, books, galleries and industry websites but the only feature that matters is the art you choose to hang on your walls, the collaborations we create together and the images you love. For more information on my work, to discuss a project or to just say Aloha, call me at 951.897.8732."
