I was delighted to be contacted by Charlie from Pure Alternative Therapy in Alton to capture some interior shots of her beautiful therapy building. Built in the 1500's, it is one of Alton's oldest buildings which is beautifully preserved with its original beams and incredibly low doorways! Pure has several therapy rooms which are used by a variety of independent therapists including a newly decorated talking therapists room. In response to the growing demand for mental health services, Charlie is pleased to offer a newly renovated room for talking therapies.
It really is a beautiful and very calming space to be in, which is what she wanted captured in the photos.
I had the absolute pleasure to photograph Naomi's Preserves to showcase her wonderful and ever expanding jam making business to use for her marketing.
Naomi uses only the freshest local ingredients in her products and are preservative free which was important to show in the images. Together we styled fresh, vibrant fruits and vegetables which Naomi arranged to go with each jam we were showcasing, giving her customers a real visual for what is in their product. Check out her website for a list of places you can purchase her lovely products.
Some words from Naomi:
'I would just like to say the biggest thank you for the opportunity to collaborate on my personal branding photoshoot for my business. It was so much fun to work together and to see how you see things through a lens. I tried to think in advance about the photos that I would like "out there" but I had absolutely no idea how they would turn out. You really have captured the absolute essence of my business and what it stands for. The preserves look sensational in the photos and so enticing! You have a real talent for your subject matter and that absolutely shines through in your craft. I really enjoyed working together with you on this project'.
Since the lockdown began here, I wondered how long it would be before I could pick up my camera again and continue to do what I love. I often thought about all the memories that were being created but missed at the same time.
Thankfully, restrictions have now been lifted allowing me to be able to get back out and start working again with safety measures in place.
This has all happened just in the nick of time for beautiful Claire who is due to have her baby immanently. Claire, is a previous Bride of mine and it brings me even more joy to join her and her husband Luke to capture some special memories of this next part of their lives together.
Having read through the Government's new guidelines on Coronavirus, I believe the time is right to start looking at ways to return to photography, while maintaining social distancing recommendations.
With this in mind I have decided to phase in Equestrian, Pet and Family (same household) sessions in the next few weeks to those who are comfortable with this.
Equestrian and Pet sessions always take place outdoors, often in quiet & secluded locations such as woodland areas. I also highly recommend this for families too. They are easily accessible by car and do not require any direct physical contact with either myself or other members of the public. Even under normal circumstances, I can shoot at a distance exceeding 2 metres and I am committed to ensuring the safety of myself and my clients and following social distancing rules.
It’s such a stunning time for shoots now so please get in touch with me if you would like to get something scheduled in.
Thank you for supporting this small and local business.
