Our goal for the photoshoot

The team at All Women's Health felt their staff photos needed updating. They didn't represent who they were or their brand. The images will be used on social media and on their website.

Tell me in a nutshell what youdo

My company helps business owners to scale their businesses and earn beyond the income they think they are capable of. I also offer assistance to those who wish to start a business but don't know where to start. Providing people with easy, step-by-step introductions to business allows people to grow a business, and not worry about trial and error.

Why did you hire Britt to take your portraits?

I hired Britt as I saw her work on Instragram and loved how she had turned boring head shots into stories of people, their businesses and the services they offer to their communities.

Were you nervous about your photoshoot? How did you feel on the day?

I wasn't nervous at all. Britt utilised her team of stylist, make up artist and hair stylist to communicate to me prior to the shoot, so that I was comfortable and able to discuss exactly what I wanted. This provided me with comfort, as this would typically be the area that I would be nervous about. But knowing that Britt had everything under control and all the different people involved had contacted me to talk about what I wanted from the day, it put me at ease.

What helped you prepare for the shoot?

Having Britt coordinate the team to help me prepare added so much value to that day, as I knew that the only thing I needed to organise was ensuring I arrived on time. I was given plenty of time, help and guidance to choose my wardrobe wisely. The outfits chosen will also be able to be worn beyond the photoshoot, adding more value for money as Kate ensured that the items I chose could be utlised in my day to day closet.

Did your photos live up to your expectations?

The photos were beyond my expectations and truly look amazing. They captured the energy that I put into my business, and the love I have for working with my clients to grow their businesses. The photos are all work well together and complement each other, so that when you see several photos together, they tell a cohesive story.

Did you arrange hair and makeup and what was your experience?

Britt arranged the hair and makeup for me! I was able to arrive at the prearranged time to the hair salon, with the stylist already knowing exactly how I wanted my hair as we had had a consult prior. She had prepped me for how my hair should be on the day, so that my hair style was put together efficiently.

Did you hire a studio and was it worth the extra cost?

I did hire a studio, and it was so worth it! Britt knew the location very well, to ensure that we got all the right shots and used each area of the studio to her advantage. We even shot out the front of the studio to get some natural lighting photos which turned out amazing.

Do you have any feedback about your experience?

It was absolutely worth the investment to get branding photography. Not only will these images go onto my website, they will be used in social media, infographics and PR opportunities. This value is more then worth the cost of the initial investment. I recommend for any one who has a business where they are the face of it, to invest in professional branding.

What is one tip you would give someone starting a new business?

Invest in yourself and your image, as this tells the story of your business and your professionalism. Don't jump straight to paid advertising to generate work, look to free advertising opportunities amongst social media and online to start building the business and retaining regular clients.

And here are the results of good communication and excellent preparation...
