I had a lovely time with these folks form Staged Homes - it was not only fun - but they came prepared and new what they wanted - clean simple images for their Website - they came with a few different outfits - and as you would expect from people who style homes for a living - they got it just right. By the way - I really could have nicked Robyn's coat if she didn't like it so much! Chatting with Steve, Robyn and Chrissie during the shoot, I discovered some interesting facts - one of the big ones was that often the purchasers of the styled home ask if they can buy the home as is, as they love the way that it looks, the furniture, fabrics and artworks - now I'm really not sure if you can get a better compliment or referral than that!
Yeah - I know - we can’t quite get social yet! (Only a few days until we are out of lockdown #6!) But we can get Digitally Social - and if your business needs some help with content marketing strategy and you are creating online courses, this energetic lady is the one to help you. I first met Jenny through another lovely client many years ago, and did a little workshop photography for her then. Then our paths crossed in a business group, and this time I had the pleasure and fun of creating some branding images for her. Jenny is a Mum to three young men, and as a single parent took that leap of faith and belief in herself to create her own business - doing not only what she knows how to do, but loves doing. She knew she needed to change her corporate lifestyle to suit her family, and also for her health - and she wants to help more people achieve what she knows they are capable of, and deserve for themselves. Jenny walks the talk - she knows how hard it is for many of us to
I was first introduced to Sue through her husband Darrell - a long-time childhood friend. At the time Sue was looking to launch her new book. “The Easy Guide To A Clean And Lean Body” and required a sprinkling of personal branding images to start being seen as the face of her business – both online and for her book. Health conscious and choosing to eat a diet to enhance their immune systems, and stay fit, Sue and Darrell live and breathe what Sue teaches. She has helped thousands of people over the last 29 years to gain better health, and through this, greatly increase their vitality and quality of life. `
Working with likeminded women who are passionate about their life and business is an amazing way to spend my work day. I get that it is difficult to fit everything we need to do into a day or a week - I know we all have so many different parts of our lives that need to be taken care of - that is why when I met Agnieszka, founder of Jantar Yoga to discuss collaborating on images for her business I knew we would be a great fit. Agnieszka, is a wife, a mother, freedom seeker, supporting conscious leaders, tapping into their inner wisdom to align with greatness, and true self to follow their path with purpose. Specializing in mindset mastery, embodiment, manifestation, emotional intelligence, and positive outlook. Agnieszka is a stand for people to live their true, highest purpose NOW.
So, you have been advised that you require an updated headshot or corporate portrait. Or do you need business branding? What exactly do you need? How do you know if you need to just get a ‘LinkedIn Headshot’ or something more? What is a ‘LinkedIn Headshot?’
Do you ever wonder "What size should I have my portraits printed?" Choosing the right size portraits is not just about choosing a pre-determined size you THINK you want, but looking at the space you will be displaying them in, then choosing a size that shows your portraits at their best.
So another year and another AIPP Photography Print Awards down - both the State and National. This year I managed to enter both, and received 3 Silvers for the State Awards, and 1 Silver for the National. As per usual, there were an amazing selection of fine Photographic Images, in numerous Categories. I entered the Family and Portrait categories. This image of a family was taken during a family portrait session earlier this year - personally, I love it when I manage to capture the connection within the family. Sure I can photography everyone standing or sitting looking at the camera - and I totally get that we all want and need these photos. But what really inspires me is capturing those moments of interaction - those times that we will never get back again, soon in the near future these two beautiful girls will be too large to pick up and swing around easily, and even sooner they and you will forget you even did - capture these times - they are the priceless moments we

m very happy to announce that at this years Australian Professional Photography Awards with AIPP, that I received 4 awards for the 4 prints entered.
Recently I had the chance to go back to Queenstown, Arrowtown and Wanaka in NZ – it was a long overdue holiday with my husband Phil who had not been there before. I had lived there from 1992 – 1999, and just never managed to make it back. It was so wonderful to get back to The Otago region and catch up with old friends, and experience the area again. We caught up with friends Amanda and Shane. Shane is now a full-time Sculptor working mainly in Slate and Schist generally for large scale works placed in their environment. The work is stunning. Shane takes commissions and has created works for collectors in New Zealand, Australia an Europe. Take a moment to have a look at Shane’s Art. http://shanewoolridge.co.nz/biography/
