Me and Beth met through instagram, and the photo shoot actually got organised off the back of a comment on a mutual friend's instagram post. We were exchanging stories about how we were scared of being at home by ourselves, and she mentioned that she needed some updated photos for her business.
Actually reading that back just goes to show one bizarre way in which connections are formed and photo shoots are booked.
Having professional photos for your business can seriously elevate your image across social media, and in particular your website and advertising materials. At the moment I don't offer any "business packages", but it's still something I work with businesses on, and it's also something I'm hoping to make more formal next year.
This was the furthest I've traveled for a photo shoot to date, and being asked to go down to London felt like a bit thing for me. No pressure though, Beth is super friendly and we had loads of fun, not only doing one for her dog walking & training business, but we did one with her horse, too!
It was quite a warm day, so we started early in the morning, with 6 of her client's dogs, and we walked around a lake so that they could all keep swimming and staying cool. I must say the dogs were all really well behaved, they really listened to her and they all had such a good time!
If Beth was closer to me I'd definitely be getting her to look after my two boys when I was busy!
All the photos were made available to her clients afterwards for them to purchase, too, which was an extra bonus for them!
"I booked both a branding and an equine shoot and Imogen was amazing on both. Came all the way out to London, to get shots of the dogs, she was a big hit with them, and even managed to avoid being bundled over! She knew all the tricks to get my horses ears forwards (Which can be hard as he knows most tricks!). The shots from both are amazing! She was friendly and easy to talk to, I highly recommend and look forwards to booking another one with her soon!"
