Why you Don’t Need to Take the Day Off to have a Business Photo Shoot!

So you’ve got a small business and your days are packed! Super busy juggling all the hundreds of jobs your work involves and a never ending to do list?

But you’ve had something lurking on that to do list for quite some time now that you know needs tackling but you don’t know how you’ll ever find the time?

I’m betting it’s something to do with updating your photography and marketing?

Showing the characters and unique personalities behind the brand who make it so much more than just a business. Helping you to show your customers so much more than just your  products or services.

I recently was invited by Michelle and Graham, owners of Bean and Brush art cafe in Sale, to come along to their gorgeous new premises in Stanley Square to take some images to show off their new home.

They were both super busy in their bustling cafe but I was able to hang out in there with my camera and capture so many aspects of their creative, friendly business while they got on with their work!

I absolutely loved being in this lively spot and was able to capture their super friendly team chatting with and serving customers, busily preparing food and drinks and helping to create art work.

I was able to take some really useful images of their new interior with customers using the space and grabbed a couple of minutes to take a quick portrait of Michelle and Graham at the front door of the cafe.

All in all, Michelle and Graham now have a wonderful bunch of varied images that really tell the story behind their creative, friendly, wonderful business and they didn’t even need to take the day off to do it!

Sonya’s so lovely and just takes time to understand what you want from the shoot and endeavours to get it for you. The photos I got were fantastic- really good quality. Through the photos, she managed to really captured the business and get my culture across to the viewer. Would totally recommend her. To have some fresh images to brighten my social channels and my website has been brilliant. I’ve even pulled some together to create a promotional reel which has got some amazing engagement.
