Pompy Portraits has Re-Branded! July 1st, 2021, Pompy Portraits rebranded into something incredible. The prep for this rebrand was over six months long, and I am glad to say the wait was well worth it. Before I dive into the rebrand, let me tell you a little about myself.
I’m a photographer based in Jacksonville, FL, better known as the YASSS Queen. A Charcuterie lover, dog mom, and passionate about empowering women to celebrate their beauty. When you step in front of my camera, you can bet I’ll be there to help you laugh, dance, and pose your way to feeling like a supermodel. Whether you’re celebrating a significant life milestone or celebrating how badass you are – I’m going to make you feel like a Queen!
I started living my dream as a professional photographer in 2009 as a side hustle. I was known as the girl who always had a camera in high school. Who would have imagined that I would be a full-time entrepreneur that pivoted her hobby into a career?
When Scharmy(husband) and I started this company in 2017, we had set a five-year plan for our business and had many strategies in place to meet our goals along the way. In 2020, our company grew more expeditious than we expect (in a good way). It was time to re-evaluate our business goals to ensure they aligned with our personal life and the future we wanted our business. After much thought and conversation, we decided that split the three different services into three separate companies Pompy Portraits (photography), 21.9 Films (Videography), and Pompy Photo Booth (Photobooth). A lot of behind-the-scenes work had begun once the decision to divide was made.
Pompy Portraits is a luxury boudoir, maternity, and newborn photography based in Jacksonville, FL. I specialize in celebrating womanhood in every aspect of your life through photographs – from booties to babies (Totally making that a thing, HAHAHA). I am a strong advocate for women’s empowerment, and I wanted my new brand to reflect that. I realized a gap in my community for this kind of photography experience, and I am proud to bring that to Jacksonville. The impact that I have made through my imagery in some of my client’s lives has been mind-blowing, and some days I can’t put into words how meaningful that is.
For my clients, I provide a full-service photography experience. My team and I make sure you’re 110% ready for your photoshoot, from location selections to prep guide. Your photoshoot will start with a pamper session of professional hair and makeup (and some bubbly for my boudoir babes!). The best part is our private in-studio reveal sessions where you and your loved ones celebrate your beauty inside and out.
Community over competition all day, every day! As a photography mentor in Jacksonville, I help photographers skip the trial and error to level up their business and guide them with actionable tactics/strategies. I will also use my platform to educate and motivate my clients and other photographers in my area.
Sadly, I am not taking on new wedding clients. As far as families and portraits – I can squeeze those in if my schedule permits. You can count on Christmas minis every year if you want to use that opportunity to get family portraits and self-portraits done. If you need any of those photography services, don’t hesitate to reach out to me, I will send you recommendations of other photographers – I would never stir you in the wrong direction <3
We had a happy hour launch party at Intuition Ale Works. We had the cutest setup/decor by Aura Jax, which made for the best photo ops. Alondra Vega Photography took some incredible photos of us and the guests that I will cherish forever. There is no better way to celebrate the three new businesses than inviting past/current clients, family, and friends! I love a good social gathering if you have to know anything about me, so if you give me a reason to bring people together, I shall do it! Lol.
It felt SO GOOD to see all MY people in one space especially after the pandemic which I still can’t believe we are still in this! Scharmy and I had a little speech explaining the details to the guests and we continued to mix and mingle. The evening was marvelous, and I couldn’t have asked for a better event.
Y’all know I am always working on special projects for myself or clients. One of the most significant projects that we have scheduled next is ……. Drumroll…… MERCH. Yes – I’m are launching merchandise via an online store. I can’t wait to share more of this with you. My email list will be the first to know about the details, so if you haven’t already – subscribe by clicking here.
Scharmy and I would not be here today if it weren’t for your support in our little dream that has blossomed in ways we would have never imagined. You are more than just clients to us; you are family and we are grateful for you. Hope we stay connected and can’t wait to serve again in the next milestone in life.
Xoxo, the Pompys!
