We at The Brand Photography Company adore branding! So when we have the chance to create brand photography for another photographer it’s particularly rewarding!
When a client from your own industry hires your services. It’s a true testament to the quality of your work and the value you provide.
Recently, photographer Claire Drillingcourt approached us to create lifestyle personal brand photos that would help establish her as a nursery and family photographer. We were thrilled to collaborate with a fellow photographer and help her achieve her branding goals.
Together, we created stunning brand photos during our shoot in Reading, Berkshire, which Claire used to launch a new website and establish her social media presence. It was an enriching experience for us, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to work with a fellow professional in our field.
Lifestyle Personal Brand Photography
When it comes to nursery photographs, Claire has a unique approach that sets her apart from others in her field. Instead of traditional white studio backgrounds, she prefers to capture children playing outdoors in natural light. This playful and colorful element is central to her style and helps create a more authentic and engaging experience for her subjects.
To showcase this style, Claire chose the picturesque Caversham Gardens in Reading as the location for her outdoor photoshoot. By photographing children in their natural element, she’s able to capture the true essence of childhood and create stunning images that stand out from the norm.
To ensure the shoot was a success, Claire enlisted the help of previous clients who were willing to participate in the session for free. This allowed me to document Claire photographing the families in action, resulting in some fantastic and interactive photos. With multiple cameras involved, it was a fun and lively atmosphere that perfectly captured the essence of Claire’s unique approach to nursery photography.
Feel and direction
To create a more authentic and diverse feel for the shoot, Claire carefully selected a range of models to represent the target audience she works with. These included a maternity model, a mom and toddler, and a young family. By featuring a variety of subjects in the nursery setting, the photos help potential clients envision the types of customers they could work with.
For wardrobe choices, Claire opted for classic outdoor Joules outfits that she often wears while working with clients. However, to add variety, different sets of clothes were used for each section. By simply changing tops and layering with a black vest, dressing up for the photo shoot was made easy and accessible.
All the models were a pleasure to work with, and Claire even provided them with a series of images as a thank you for their time. As the photographer assisting with this shoot, I found it to be an exciting and rewarding experience. It was an honor to be a part of Claire’s business branding process, and the photos came out beautifully.
In the end, she ended up with over 100 finished images for £350!
