Welcome to your Brand Mini
Thank you so much for booking a session with me. I am so excited to work with you and finding out all about your business, to have fun and capture some beautiful, natural images that tell the story of your business and passions and that will add so much value to your marketing. This session guide will tell you everything you need to know about a photoshoot with me and how you can prepare.
This is me, Leanne. mum of two, memory catcher, sunset lover, relaxed and natural newborn and family photographer covering Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds. I can't wait to get to know you too.
I take a very relaxed approach to all my sessions. My main aim is to make everyone feel comfortable and is very much about documenting you and what you get up to behind the scenes in your business. At some points along the way, I will ask you to look at the camera to get those head shot worthy portraits. Or I will find a colourful background or some pretty light for you to stand in.
THE BRAND MINI SESSION
These mini photoshoots will be simple, beautiful and relaxed. They are all about you and your business so you can show your clients the face behind the scenes, giving them a chance to connect with you.
They are taking place at the beautiful Matara Centre in Tetbury. There are plenty of spaces inside and out that we can use. The Matara Centre is already decorated beautifully with lots of greenery. We will be able to pick a spot that is best suited to your business brand.
The Matara Centre,
Kingscote Park, Kingscote,
Nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire,
There is free parking at the venue.
Please arrive 5 minutes before to ensure that you are ready to start at your allotted time so that you are able to have your full 20 minutes before my next clients arrive.
WHAT TO WEAR
I would wear anything that you feel comfortable in and that would represent how you would like to portray your brand and personality. For example, if you would like to come across as professional, maybe a suit or jeans and a jacket would be a good idea, if you want to come across as informal; and relaxed, maybe think about comfy knits or floaty dress... you get the idea!
The main thing is that you feel comfortable, otherwise this will show in the photos but here are some general do's and don'ts that I give to all my clients.
Soft and neutral tones will always photograph well, e.g. pastels or greys/beiges/whites (not all white though)
Earthy tones will give a more vibrant feel and look great together (burgundy/greens/mustards/blues/burnt oranges)
Use variation in colours for each person as well as mixing up different textures (denim/cotton/wool/linen, etc) this will add depth and texture to your images.
Layering looks lovely in photos and can give you variation (scarfs/shirts/hats/cardigans/jackets – depending on weather)
Ideally stay away from too bright or overly patterned clothes as this will take away from what is happening in the images
I would also advise to stay away from big logos/brands printed as this will takeaway from the timeless feel of the images.
Don't all wear the same item of clothing or same colour, e.g. all jeans and all white shirts. This will look too contrived. We want each personality to shine.
During our pre-photoshoot discussions I am more than happy to help you with your outfit choices further and you are more than welcome to email me some ideas or any options that you have already in your wardrobe. Ideally I wouldn’t want you to spend where you wouldn't need to. I want you to feel comfortable and confident!
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SESSION
As these sessions are only 20 minutes long, I would love for you to get the most out of your session. Bring anything you think would represent your brand that you would like included in the photos. This session would be mainly for a selection of headshots but we can also include a phone, notepad, laptop for a different variety of images.
