Headshot Photography - Commercial Photography South Wales - Personal Branding

This month I’m thrilled to share Emmas personal branding photoshoot. She is an absolute sweetheart and it was so very lovely to meet her and help her along to the next chapter of her yoga journey. I cannot wait for you to see all the personal branding and headshot photography we created, capturing Emmas spark perfectly!

Lovely Emma

Before our session Emma had told me how nervous she was about having her picture taken and being in the spotlight. But you would never have known, she was a natural in front of the camera and all her images she seems completely laid back. We spent the whole time really getting to know each other, sharing all kinds of stories, wisdom and jokes. To be honest part of the reason Emma was probably so laid back because it felt more like two friends hanging out than a stuffy headshot photography session!

We started our session with some slightly formal headshot photography, well I say formal… You can see Emma is wearing her welcoming smile, although they are professional they still feel relaxed and warm.

Then we moved on to Emmas natural habitat, yoga poses! Emma had told me that she had previously lost her joy in yoga, until she found the new path she is now on. So it was lovely to see Emma smiling as she moved through her poses, watching her laugh as she wobbled, embracing her practice!

Building her empire
Always learning

Emma is making a big change to her business, she wanted to launch her new website full of professional images. She’s also getting ready to fully launch her social channels and now she has enough content to last her for the rest of the year! There’s nothing like taking the stress out of creating content for social media like having a catalogue of images to draw on. Trust me!

Education everyday

Readying herself for this big direction change Emma has immersed herself into studying. Of course I had to suggest she brought along some of her reading material. These will be perfect images for her social media without a doubt. I do have to admit though we both had a chuckle when Emma pulled this impressive stretch out of the bag and we decided to give Emma a book to read. Real causal pose to be reading in hey?!

A note from Emma,

“Truly, I am so grateful. Not only are they wonderful photos but a huge positive hit in being really happy with being 50! Strength more than youth, presence more than vanity I say.

You have a natural gift and made me feel as relaxed as possible and have taken some truly wonderful and varying shots. And we had fun on the process. I have no doubt they will convey exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you doesn’t seem enough.”
