I am abusiness coach and I help business owners with their marketing and customercare. Time aftertime, I tell clients that they must: “show up like nobody else” but, how was I showing up to my clients? Not very well, my official profile picture, although taken by a professional, hadn’t changed in 8 years. I used it like a passport photo’ to identify me.
Angie’s professional services start long before the shoot itself. Firstly, she has a range of services to suit all requirements and budgets, from studio shoots to on location. Professional portraits for the boardroom, to candid lifestyleshots. And shots that promote your brand.
Angie booked a call with me before my shoot to discuss what I wanted to achieve and to advise on what to wear, what to avoid and where best to reflect me and the image I wanted to portray. I like to meet clients in my favourite local café, so we met there for the shoot, with the kind permission of the owner.
We hadn’t met before but Angie instantly put me at my ease. She listened again to what I wanted to achieve. I wanted to promote 2 very different aspects of my business and Angie took that in her stride and incorporated the props I had brought into our photos. The shoot was relaxed and fun, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Today the photos arrived. I was excited and knew that they would give me exactly what I wanted. However, I was slightly nervous, as who really likes looking at photos of themselves? These were wonderful. I am proud of the whole collection. Angie gave me so much choice of beautiful photographs that I am excited to use to promote my business and the work I do on my website and social media.
Now I can show up as I want to be seen and that feels really good. A photoshoot with Angie is a wonderful confidence boost, she really captures the best of you. I would recommend a photoshoot with Angie to everyone. I would prescribe it, if Icould.
It’s your life and your business and Angie helps you to take the starring role and to really show up for your clients, like nobody else.
Angie… You have done us proud – I knew you would! And there are so many lovely pictures and portraits in the portfolio.
And so quickly – this enables me to get into the EDP. We will use some on our website and Facebook page as well… All great for publicity – and some will go into our magazine next edition. Thanks again.
Angela is a fantastic photographer and I would highly recommend using her. We have already booked her for our next event and would love to keep using her going forward.
I just wanted to let you know that everyone was very impressed with how patient and understanding you were with the tenants… and I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful photographs you took at Long Road. The staff have all had a good look at them and have commented on how beautiful the images are, you’ve genuinely caught the ladies personality’s and idiosyncrasies not only beautifully, but in a way that staff here have never seen before. The photographs you have given us will be deeply treasured.
I wanted to say a huge thank you for professionalism during my Personal Brand Photography shoot. You took the time to get to know me and you certainly managed to show the real me in the pictures. You have set up a system that allows you to know exactly what I needed, even though I wasn’t sure myself.
Thank you, Angela, for making the whole session run so smoothly. I know from my teaching practice how much work you put in behind the scenes to make it all seem so easy. The best part was how you did your research in advance of the session. You asked fabulous questions that made me think about what I wanted.
Our mailer begins its rollout today, and we’re mightily proud of the finished product! Hope you like the way the head-shots are laid out, we loved how sharp they all look. The group shot is now on our homepage, and (my favourite) we enlarged to 2 metres wide and it now hangs in our main corridor – and all those eyes follow you around the boardroom! Hope to work with you again soon. www. jms-group.com
The review was very helpful. Thinking about colour was interesting. Making a short video and changing some photos and layouts as you recommended, are on my to-do list. Which is growing longer by the day. You gave us so much information and so many pointers. It wasn’t a one size fits all. You had different recommendations for each of us so I think a small group was perfect. I probably got more from that than a one-to-one.
'I learnt how important it was to connect through photos with your paying clients/students. I hadn’t even thought about how different images would connect with different age groups, so one to ponder on for me. It definitely made me think about how I need to redo things. I found the input from the other group members really helped with what I was trying to portray. It made me think about what I wish to show (of me). I found it all hugely informative. I know I have the best info from you with regard to images and that you can see more than I can as to what needs to be shown to others. You can think outside of my box more than I can when it comes to getting the right image for gauging the right interest.'
