I know what you're thinking right now...

At least I’m pretty sure I do. You’ve taken the plunge and decided you need professional photos to take your business to the next level.


BUT, you may be filled with horror at the thought of posing for the camera, despite your LinkedIn photo being five years old.

How do I know this? Because I feel completely the same, and so do 90% of my clients.

 
Luckily you are in the right place. I am a down-to-earth lass from the north of England and it is my absolute mission to make women and people from underrepresented groups feel at ease in front of the camera.

Why? Because so many people, like you, doing amazing things in the world yet their work isn't being seen enough. Great photography can help a lot with that.

 

How? Images rank as the most critical content type, ahead of text and video. 68% of marketers say they plan to use images more in the future. One of the fastest ways to build trust with your audience, and build your own confidence, is by showing your lovely face.

 

Your cheerleader minus the pom poms

When you work with me you are going to get SUCH a confidence boost, and we are going to have fun at every step of the way. 

 

At no point will you be left feeling like a lemon, wondering what to do. I am going to tell you exactly what to do with your hands, face, legs,  you name it. I'll be cheering you on, minus pom poms, at every step.

 

Being silly is often how I get the best photos of my clients. To channel my inner goofball, you’ll find me belting out Stevie Wonder songs round the living room, and watching salty drag queens on YouTube for three hours.

A rose by any other name

Despite taking photos of PlayMobil characters in the back garden with my dad’s old film camera when I was about seven, it’s taken me a while to call myself ‘A Photographer.’

 

I worked for many years cajoling food businesses to be more environmentally sustainable (and still do), but found myself itching to photograph my colleagues instead.

 

During a long recovery from postnatal depression a few years ago (a story for another time) I got to think about what things really bring me joy. The answer became clear. And the rest, as they say, is herstory. 

 

This Brit abroad wants to hear from you

Well done if you’ve read this far. I couldn’t end without mentioning my specifically British passions, which (thanks to Brexit) see me importing large volumes of tea bags (Clipper or Yorkshire Gold if you want to know) in my suitcase, along with cheddar cheese and HP sauce.

Would we get on? I think we might. Click below and let's have a proper chat in the not too distant.

I honestly have never been happier seeing pics of myself. I'm usually very wary of professional shots as feeling staged, but Sarah has captured the pure essence of my business and its creative and community core.
