I love photographing people who come to me and ask for “more than just a headshot.” They have realised the power of images to promote themselves, their brand and their story.
Sarah Pickles wanted to go one big step further and write her story about fighting stage three breast cancer and as part of that process she wanted images that would show her personality and most importantly, inspire others to fight too.
Sarah’s sense of style – fashion and beauty – are also key to her brand and how she promotes her beauty school and it was essential that the photographs captured that too.

It was obvious from the start that we needed a unique venue for the shoot, somewhere with a strong authentic vintage look and we were very lucky to be able to use a beautiful private home that is the secret location for Violet’s Vintage Teas. Aside from providing the perfect location for the shoot, it gave us our theme of a vintage afternoon tea (and of course cream cake and cups of tea to keep us going!)
