Along with their incredibly popular afternoon tea delivery service, Chouxlicious will also cater and set up stunning dessert and charcuterie tables for events. I recently tagged along with them to such an event, shooting some set up and behind the scenes as Nicola did her thing, setting up the most mouthwatering summertime feast for a very lucky client's birthday party.

The Balm Pantry 2 - Portraits

August 31, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

covercover For the second part of this little mini blog series featuring my latest photoshoot for The Balm Pantry, we're looking at branding portraits.

In my opinion, personal branding portraits are one of the most valuable investments you can have for your business. It can be tempting to shy away from the camera, and as a creative myself I can totally appreciate the urge to let your creations take centre stage and speak for themselves. But as small businesses, it's our individuality, our humanity that draws our clients and customers to us, what encourages them to choose us over Big Brands, and so getting to know the person behind the business, your space and your process is essential.

These types of sessions don't have to be posed or awkward. I believe natural images of you in the environment that inspires your work, while you do your thing, is the perfect way to give your followers, clients, and customers an authentic glimpse of who you are, what inspires, influences, and motivates you and your work.

 

In the case of The Balm Pantry, their beautiful home nestled in the Shropshire Hills, surrounded by natural beauty, wildlife and their wonderful pets speaks volumes about why sustainability and natural ingredients are the cornerstone of everything they create.

Pink Poppy Veils & Accessories 2

covercover With even more variations and new designs now available it was time for another session to add to Pink Poppy's online store of hand finished bridal vbeils. This time we also worked on highlighting differences between various beading options, edge types and detailing along with overall veil length. As always, Yvonne's impeccable attention to detail shone in every single one of her pieces, and if you're a bride currently searching for the perfect bride, be sure to pay her Etsy Shop a visit.

The Balm Pantry Session 2 - Products

cover 3cover 3 Back on location shooting lifestyle product content for The Balm Pantry at their home nestled in the beautiful Shropshire Hills. As with out previous session, our time covered a LOT of ground and so I have decided to split the blog into parts so that I can share the various aspects that can be covered when booking half day or full day sessions.

For the first part we're looking at products and packages. Since our last session a variety of new products have been added to the bodycare range, including bath salts, body oils and hand balms along with a selection of themed gift bundles.

Back to school e-commerce for Krafty Gifts UK. This session also included their latest addition of personalised water resistant garden furniture cushions. As with all e-commerce sessions I like to shoot close up detail to help potential customers get the most accurate idea of what they're buying, so with these I also wanted to demonstrate their water resistant abilities by shooting a little water droplet macro.

The Challis Family

The Challis Family LowRes (72)The Challis Family LowRes (72)

While I almost never shoot family portrait sessions anymore, when I was contacted and asked if I'd be interested in photographing a family who are in the process of finalising the adoption of their two daughters, as a fellow adoptee I jumped at the chance. Making the decision to adopt and to give a loving home to children who would otherwise be without one is such an incredible thing to do, and the Challis' have given their daughters the gift of SUCH a beautiful family. It's a privilege to document a little piece of that and I wish them the most glorious future together <3

After working together a few times to create a gallery of creative product photographs for Shropshire Macarons' website and social media marketing, it was finally time to get the man behind the business in front of the camera for some personal branding portraits which are an absolute must-have for any small business
It was a really fun session, which George brought a tonne of personality to and which we split into two parts, one indoor studio style shoot in my kitchen, and a more laid back, location session out and about in Bridgnorth.

Pink Poppy Veils & Accessories

covercover Pink Poppy Veils create ethereal, hand finished veils & accessories in various lengths and designs to suite every bride on their wedding day.

For the session brief I was tasked with capturing the many different lengths, edge detailing and back to back beading on each individual veil which meant working in my home studio with separate backdrops and light set ups in order to capture each element from the ivory tulle to the different types and combinations of beads and crystals, in their best light.

My 10th (!) session with Pawfect Delights starred the faces behind the brand.
Fred and Florrie are a beautiful brother/sister pair of super smart Border Collies, both with a background in agility training courtesy of their lovely Mom Louise. Fred has lots of experience modelling (represented by Urban Paws), having starred in Adverts for Land Drover, Tails & Aldi and brought all of that patience and skill with him to the shoot, posing for the camera like the pro that he is for over an hour. Florrie being his baby sister, brought all of the show-stealing, step climbing, smiley faced personality to the shoot and between the two of them made for a super fun photoshoot to add to Pawfect Delights business branding.
