Lorraine from House of Colour … adding the magic touch!

I first met Lorraine at a networking event and was lucky enough to hear her present about her role at House of Colour. Lorraine was introduced to the concept by a colleague and joined the company just over seven years ago. At her presentation, Lorraine basically started off fully “dressed” and then proceeded to strip back, by taking off jewellery, lipstick, scarf, jacket, belt (although she didn’t take off her make-up) to reveal the difference. It was quite amazing – I’ve always seen Lorraine as very stylish and when she enters a room, she just looks “right”. And I was amazed to see just how much difference the right colour lipstick can make.

So we hatched a plan to strip it right back to basics, so that I could take images that showed the building up of the look. Lorraine wasn’t too happy about being photographed with no make-up on at all … indeed, that morning on the school run, she told me that she hid behind big sunglasses!

But she wanted to “take one for the team” and to really show how the expertise and knowledge of a great stylist can really take you from … well, top left to bottom right!

There are four seasons at House of Colour, spring, summer, autumn and winter. Once your season has been established, you then know your colours and also the colour and style of jewellery that best suits you. You can see the difference in the top right image below of silver and gold jewellery against differing colour swatches.

Walking into Lorraine’s studio, it’s a riot of colour … and her skills will work out just which colour suits you!

I really enjoyed capturing the progression and getting some great images which Lorraine can use in promoting her style sessions. In Lorraine’s words:

“As a consultant I have the opportunity to combine my love of fashion with helping others on their own personal journeys into the world of colour and watch first hand their transformations.  I get to see their confidence grow and hear about all the positive changes they have experienced along the way.”

You can find Lorraine here: Lorraine at House of Colour. She covers Rainham (Kent), Sittingbourne, Faversham and local towns.

If you are considering booking a personal branding session and if you haven’t had your “colours done”, I’d highly recommend it. You will feel confident that you look your absolute best and also, by having the wallet with your season colours, shopping will be so much easier and also more cost effective.

Do let me know how you get on!

Website branding for Kerry at For the Love of Live Music

I met Kerry through the Kent Wedding Circle which is a fabulous group of people who work together to promote the very best in wedding suppliers. I then met up with her again at the opening of the new Winston Suite at the Dover Marina Hotel where she was performing live for the esteemed guests. Kerry had asked to photograph her in situ for some new images for her website and it was my pleasure to help.

Personal branding photography for bookkeeper, Kate at Crystal Books Limited

I have known Kate for a long time. We used to work in London together and have stayed friends ever since. In fact, one of her sons is my godson so we have a wonderful connection and every good reason to stay in touch.

Kate has recently trained and qualified as a bookkeeper and has launched her business www.crystalbooks.co.uk. She is based in Rayleigh, Essex and is looking to work with local companies who she can meet up with in person and to help them through the often confusing financial maze.

Kate has worked hard on her website but wanted to get some new images so that she can use them on LinkedIn and other social media sites. And I was more than happy to oblige …

This is only a few of the images that we managed to achieve. Despite having to dodge the deluges of rain, we were also able to get outside so that Kate has a good selection of images to use going forward.

If I can help you tell your business story, using excellent quality, professional images, why not get in touch. You could also give me a call and my number is listed on my site.

Good luck in your new business Kate and I look forward to seeing you again in the future xxx

Personal branding photography for Lisa Honiball of Honey Interior Designs

I have known Lisa for many years now, we met at a networking group and have kept in touch. You can see Lisa’s site here: www.honeyinteriordesign.co.uk. She has an amazing eye, especially with the use of colours, and it has been wonderful to work with her over the years. Slightly fearful of being behind the camera herself, I was delighted that she also asked me to do some headshots and “behind the scene” images for her at her studio in Hythe.

Personal branding photography is about telling the story behind the person. Their inspiration, their ethos, their skill, their creativity. I’m so pleased that Lisa’s website is full of amazing images that we created together. Lisa wrote out a plan, we worked to a schedule and produced some excellent, high quality images that really speak to her future clients.

Personal branding photography for Edwin Duncombe

I met Edwin a few years ago, he is a freelance financial editor and translator from German and French into English. He wanted some new headshot images which reflected him in his home environment as he works predominantly from home:

Relaxed images were important to Edwin and so we took time to move around the grounds so that we could get a good variety of images.

I’m delighted to see that Edwin is still using one of the images that we took for his LinkedIn profile too: Edwin Duncombe on LinkedIn

Business headshots don’t always have to be office based. They need to reflect you as a person and how you want you and your business to be perceived. Edwin’s images are a great example of this.
