Branding Mini Sessions // Madalyn Yates Photography at The Graham Mill

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


On November 14th, 2020 I hosted my very first round of Branding Mini Sessions! I’ve always dreamed of having an event like this and I am so grateful to have worked with all these incredible women! Bringing life into your brand is something that I am super passionate about & I wanted to share my joy with others! 

The first round of Branding Mini Sessions was such a success that I went ahead and planned another one and this blog post is a recap of that incredible day!

Wondering what the idea of the Branding Mini Marathon is?

The idea of the Branding Mini Marathon came from my background of hosting mini sessions for families! I wanted to serve multiple small businesses in the course of one day, so I created these! When you book, you will pick a thirty-minute time slot where you can bring anything you want and I will photograph you doing your thing! It’s a great way to get fresh & simple content!

Each of these ladies has their own small business so I encouraged them to bring props (need help choosing yours? come read how, here!) that described their brand to use for their session so journals, cameras, coffee mugs, a desk to help envision them sitting working, etc!

I would love to give a huge shout-out to Aneesa with Harmony Weddings & Events who owns The Graham Mill! The venue is absolutely stunning with an assortment of backdrops for a variety of photos. Thank you for opening up your space for these mini sessions!

Do you love what you’re seeing here? I’d love to have you be a part of the next Branding Mini Marathon!! The next one is April 12th and will be held at The Graham Mill again! Interested? CONTACT ME HERE!
