Last week I flew down to Melbourne for the Australian Professional Photography Awards. Before I left I organised a shoot with another photographer to get my own corporate photos done. I was going to sharing a hotel with another photographer from Brisbane too so I asked her if she wanted to get some corporate photos done too for her Marketing, Website, Flyers etc. So we flew down thursday morning, got off the plane and got a taxi straight to Erin Pimm Photography's studio at Ascotvale to start our shoot. Started out getting our makeup and hair done which is so nice to have done by someone else. Pampering at its best I say! So I went first with Hair and Makeup followed by Erin then Vanessa. Now it was time to start shooting!
In this digital age where everyone has digital cameras, scanners and home "photo printers", when people upload their photos to a local website or go into a shop and pick up a few hours later, we hear this all the time. How in the world do Professional Photographers charge $80 for a 12×8 when they cost just a few dollars at kmart?
Last week Desire to Inspire Photography had the opportunity to do a shoot for a very special lady. Clare is a friend of mine that is a single mum to twins Henry & Lucy. Clare had a goal in mind to set up her own Party Plan company like never before. She has now been live for around 3 weeks and it is absolutely sky rocketing to bigger than she imagined so soon after launching it to the public. This is a true testimony to why setting goals in life are so important to achieve what you dreamt of. This dream is now alive and well on its way to success. Being a single mum to 6 year old twins is one hell of a task by itself without throwing a brand new company into the equation. Makes me very proud to see one of my friends do something that makes them happy and to do it right! Well done Clare! You should be so proud of yourself and I am absolutely sure your dad is looking down on you saying the same thing!
I had the pleasure of photographing such a gorgeous girl Mandy. It was amazing to see the transformation to when she walked through the door as a shy girl without much confidence to getting her hair and makeup done then blowing us away with her gorgeous smile. WOW! I loved every minute of the session and captured so many photos it was so hard for Mnady to decide which ones she didnt like cause she loved them all. That is a proud moment for me as the photographer as that shows I did a great job. Mandy is booking in for another session shortly with her mum this time which will be so exciting! Can't wait for that session so I can capture some great images of Mandy and her mum.
Wow! What a week we have had with our business! We were blessed to be nominated in the Logan Country Business Excellence Awards a couple of months ago now so just wanted to fill you all in about the process it took for us to be in the running.
Hello to all my lovely fans. I thought it was time to tell you a bit about myself and why I do what I do to give you all a bit of insight.
Photography for me has been almost a lifelong goal for me to run my own photography business but the timing was wrong. I have always been the one behind the camera everywhere I went, birthdays, conferences, events etc etc. I was always the one getting asked to take the photos all the time at different events in my previous career which was awesome as I was always learning new tips and things along the way.
Well you have all been waiting for it so here it is! Have you ever thought about having a Glamour Makeover?
This will be a session where you will be treated like a Princess for a few hours, sip on some Champayne and get your hair and makeup done professionally to look your best for your photos! This session can be done by yourself or with your partner/friend for even more of a special touch. There is a discount for booking for yourself and a friend or partner so take advantage of it.
I wanted to share with you an inspiration to all women and that is the journey of one of my wonderful clients. I have been working closely with Fitness Matters Jimboomba and it was just before xmas I was approached by them to start working with them as their preferred photographer for all events etc. It was almost the time for their xmas party which they were announcing the winners of the 6 week cardio challenge. They told me about how much the top 2 had lost and it was AMAZING! I suggested to give them a Glamour Makeover Voucher for the top 2 as they were women and I thought they would appreciate having a makeover to celebrate their success in this challenge. I have done the Number 1 Challenge achiever Elaine which lost 32cm in the 6 weeks and overall has lost 75kgs! How amazing is that? What an inspiration! She looks AMAZING and I am so proud of what she has done for her self and her health. It takes a lot of guts, determination, motivation, and consistency to achieve such an amazing goal like that. Well done Elaine! You look awesome and keep up the great job! I had a ball at the shoot knowing how awesome she looked with her hair and makeup professionally done and the setup was a vintage setup from Moments in Vintage – Vintage Decor and Furniture Hire which was absolutely stunning! Here is some of the photos we captured on the day!
