Author & Coach Thekla Richter | Small Business Branding & Visuals Photography in Seattle, WA

Thekla Richter’s small business branding photography session was so much fun! The weather cooperated perfectly, which is rare for Seattle in November: a beautiful sunny day with air crisp enough to keep us from getting sweaty.

Thekla (pronounced Tech-luh — I was dying to know, too) writes middle-grade fantasy books (ask her about the space fairies!) with amazing girl protagonists who help children connect to feelings of empowerment, hope, joy, and freedom.

She also runs a life coaching business, which centers around playful productivity coaching for creative people. You can find more on all her work at

Our goal with Thekla’s session was to not only capture some specific images for various parts of her website, but to get lots of great general-use images for social media, profile pictures and other uses that might pop up (oh, say, author images for book jackets).
