Branding Placeres Naturopathic


I would love for you to meet Dr Amanda Placeres. Dr. Amanda Placeres is located right next to me on Bank Street in New Milford and it has been an inspiration to see the drive and enthusiasm she has brought to her business. We have brainstormed on how to best present a cohesive and professional web and social media presence, and we have both had so much fun and learned so much about branding through images along the way. 


What business do you own? 

I am a Naturopathic Physician and acupuncturist. I founded Placeres Naturopathic & Acupuncture from a place of heart and continue to lead with passion. Our first and most important goal is to get your mind and body into optimum health. We focus on disease prevention and optimizing wellness through the least invasive and most effective therapies for the individual. With therapies that are patient-centered, we offer advanced diagnostic testing, individualized treatment plans, medical-grade supplements, and so much more. We offer a unique approach to managing your health that will leave you feeling happy, healthy, and whole. 

When did you start your practice

What started as one small office in Norwalk in 2016 has developed into a multidisciplinary clinic in New Milford with satellite offices in Norwalk and Stamford.

Why did you come to New Milford? 

I fell in love with New Milford, its people and the “small town vibe.” I knew I wanted to be a part of a community that really cared about one another. What I enjoy most about practicing in a small community is the doctor-patient relationships I form with patients and the involvement in town events. My own health was transformed by the support I received from the amazing educators in my life, like school counselors, teachers, and professors. That’s why I now seek to educate others through monthly workshops and events for free, to promote the health and well-being of the community.

Why did you start working with Janet Taub? 

Janet is my neighbor in the building where we are located. She was the first tenant I met. I was excited to have a photographer close by.  I had been wanting to update my business photos and branding for a while but did not meet the right professional yet. I knew she was great right away when I saw the type of work she did. After out first session working together, I was blown away by her expertise, ease and creativity with the camera. Every session we have done together is better than the one before. This is because Janet has taken the time to understand me, my business and how I practice. She knows better than I do how to make that translate into a photo. Since working with her, my business has never looked better on social media platforms and my website. Patients know at first glance what services we offer and what to expect before stepping foot into the door.




We are planning our next branding shoot so follow Placeres Naturopathic on instagram to see more of our images and for lots of tips on living a healthy balanced lifestyle. 

Personal Branding and Marketing

Meet Linda Rey

Aurora Consulting, CT

I invited Linda Rey from Aurora Consulting to be a guest writer on the Planet Photo Blog. We met last year at a networking event and I was impressed by her desire to mix up the networking scene in New Milford. It was such a pleasure having her in the studio and I loved picking her brain and getting her perspective on personal branding and marketing! I also loved the she switched out images on her blog and started to use the images we created IMMEDIATELY! Check out her website and follow her on social media.

In Linda’s words:

In this digital age, the B word is thrown around a lot when it comes to businesses marketing their business. No, the “B” word isn’t “business” but that’s a good one too.

What’s the “B” word? You know what it is: Branding.

There are many tools available to download many, Many, MANY stock images to market your business and your brand. We can also add graphics and logos and textures to those images.  We’ve used these tools and it’s been fun. 

But, we knew we wanted to level-up our brand. We decided it was time for a professional photo shoot to focus on us as the BRAND.  We were mindful of our “brand” when presenting to the wide world of prospective clients for our business. Nothing speaks to your brand like a spectacular picture of YOU.

We knew to get to the next level, we needed Janet at Planet Photo to help create those images. Janet is a gem. She is the consummate professional, but also a creative genius when it comes to representing your brand on film. 

Her ideas are fresh and the event was fluid with changing it up so we would have a library of images as part of the marketing mission.

We wanted to create a personal connection with our prospects and clients. That’s what Janet helps to achieve.  With a personal connection, your audience of customers and clients become intimately familiar with You as the Brand.

Now, we can merge our pictures with our words.  The reaction has been instant and overwhelmingly positive.  Our audience clearly “gets the picture.”

She can’t wait to hear from you to talk about your brand possibilities. If you’re thinking about it, start talking with her so you can envision the possibilities. You’ll be so incredibly happy!

Please email Janet at or call her at 203-313-1303.
