Business photography props – Ideas of what to bring for your photo session

Bay Area | San Jose Business Photography – Business Photography Props – Ideas

As we prepare for photo sessions, wardrobe or location can be the things that we focus on first. But we should also think about props to include during our session. Props not only elevate your brand and self in the final images, it gives you something to do with your hands which is one thing that I hear a lot during a session, what should I do with my hands? So if you’re unsure on where to start with props, here are ideas for business photography props!

  • Coffee Mug: A mug can add a touch of warmth and personality especially if it’s one of your favorite mugs or if it’s branded with your business logo.
  • Laptop, Tablet, Phone: If your business allows online appointments, or has a snazzy website, when including your digital device, taking photos of these digital bonuses is great to highlight. Also, it can give your hands something to do like “talking on the phone” which gives a bit of candidness.
  • Branded Stationery/Collateral: Business cards, notebooks, or realtor newsletters that are placed on your desk add visual interest and help highlight your brand identity. It can also be used as something to do like writing on your notebook or putting the newsletter down on a table to add movement to an image.
  • Plants or Greenery: Bring life to your photos with the addition of plants or greenery. Not only do they add a pop of color and texture, but they also symbolize growth, vitality, and environmental consciousness—a perfect choice for eco-friendly businesses or those with a focus on wellness.
  • Books: Showcase your knowledge by including relevant books. A stack of business books adds depth.
  • Accessories: Accessories like a pen holder, potted plants, organizer, or cool lamp brings visual appeal.
  • Branded Merchandise: Show off your company’s swag by wearing branded merchandise like a T-shirt, or hat. Another subtle marketing tool that adds that personal touch. Also, if you’re in the San Jose area and looking for branded merchandise, Spin Nest Marketing and Hella Tees offer some amazing services for your merchandise!
