Headshots for your Social media

 Headshots for your social media profiles - do you need them? Looking online I came across this sentence which I think sums it up perfectly – ‘In a matter of seconds, your profile image provides an instant impression of who you are and what you’re all about without saying a word’. In a conversation with a marketing colleague recently she told me that the length of time spent on a profile without a photo was usually measured in seconds compared to minutes for those with a recognizable image of the profile owner and I understand that this is reflected with lots of research online. As a photographer I am a very visual person and with all the forms of ...

Headshots for your Social media

Today I had a great class in the office teaching two lovely ladies how they can stop using auto on their cameras and start to get creative.  They each had a good SLR camera and extra lens but were not sure what it could do.During the teaching I run through lots of tips and the cameras functions and we also discuss lots of things on the actual composition of the images. In addition we spend time on the course getting everyone to use their own cameras and we learn how to find the right settings (there are lots of different cameras out there so bring your instruction booklet!) After lunch its shooting time and we practise lots of the teaching and create some images together.If ...

Headshots for your Social media

Recently I enjoyed visiting Sue and learning all about how she makes her frames of little ones hands and feet impressions.  I am the proud owner of two of her gorgeous pieces - we had to have the second one done when our youngest arrived!  I love looking at them and the kids enjoy comparing their hand size now to what it used to be!However even though I have these I had no idea of the amount of work she puts into each piece so that it is unique to you. Two lovely mummys agreed for me to photograph their sesssions so see for yourself the process and the final result.Meet Sue and some examples of her work.  As you can see you can include an image with your impressions and she ...

Headshots for your Social media

A few weeks ago I was asked to shoot some promotional material for a great couple who run Mustard Seed - Katherine & Peter. This meant I got to go and spend time with them at home and to see them in action cooking and creating. Walking into their home is a pleasure - there is a very welcoming atmosphere and an anticipation of what you will get to taste!As well as learning the whole process is fun and excites you about food and all its posibilities. The class I photographed below was adults making pasta however there are lots of classes including ones for you and your children. I have been to one of these previously - Sausage making with your child.  It was alot of fun however I was ...

First Post My Love, My Life - Feb 2014

Headshots for your Social media

Normally my blog posts are clients (unless I can persuade the family to model!) however at the start of 2014 I was lucky to join a photographers group - My love, My life -  where the aim is for us to take some time out and to shoot images of our own children to capture our own memories :), exactly as we love to for our clients.  As you all know life flies by and it gets even quicker when you have children, with hardly a moment to think! As a photographer, I have a camera in my hand alot of the time and I am afraid our children are very camera aware because of it! so its harder to capture them relaxed and unawares which is my preferred style. My husband and I have three ...
