It struck me recently that the photos on my website don't really look like me any more (it's - fortunately - been years since I had long jet black hair)... and also I have no decent photos of my "new" studio space - despite having been in here for six months now.
When I mentioned this to my good friend (and part-time studio assistant), Katy, she offered to take some photos of me and the studio. I jumped at the offer - Katy's a really talented wedding and portrait photographer when she's not helping me - and I really love her natural and relaxed style of photography.
The whole experience was actually quite good fun - I didn't quite shake the inevitable awkwardness of having a camera pointed in my face, but we had a laugh... and the results are fabulous, really capturing the feel of my workspace - even the ones of me don't make me cringe too much! Also, how good am I at gazing into middle distance...?
Katy has also taken some lovely flat lay photos for me to use, featuring various products - I'm so excited to finally have a more cohesive brand image! Now all I need to do is to actually put them to use, and get all my different selling platforms and social media accounts updated. The biggest trouble I'm going to have is actually choosing which ones to use!
