Most business owners I know struggle with Imposter Syndrome and I am guilty of it too. I think we as women are always comparing ourselves to others, always doubting our own success, and never really believing a compliment. So I am very grateful to Lindsey that she agreed to write a guest blog for us on this topic. She is a life-coach specialising in Imposter Syndrome and she just finished her book with lots of strategies to help women stop listening to that little voice and overcome Imposter Syndrome.

Lightroom is my most used and favourite app to give my photos the look I want them to have. The mobile app is a great and easy way to edit your photos on the go, brighten the image, remove blemishes (paid version) and use presets. I wanted to share with you guys some tips on how to edit your own photos with the Lightroom app. We all take pictures on our phone and that's awesome but to get the best out of your images you should always give them the extra love they deserve.
You might get nervous just thinking about stepping in front of the camera and having to pose. I know the word posing sounds already awkward but to be honest even the most natural and genuine laughing shots need some guidance from the photographer. Setting the client in good natural light and a flattering pose is a vital part of a personal brand photo shoot. Here are some tips and posing ideas for your personal brand shoot.
During the Covid-19 pandemic and all of us being locked in I wanted to give some tips on how to photograph your own products at home.
Before you start I want you first to think about where and how you going to use your images as this decides if you need to take your photo in landscape or portrait format. For Facebook I recommend landscape and you can also crop it in to a square for Instagram. If you want to use the the images for Instagram stories use the portrait format. Let's get started.
It is not enough anymore just to have a headshot on your website. Your prospective clients want to get a feeling for you and your business; they want to get to know, like and trust you so they feel positive about investing in you. How to provide this? By updating regularly with great and valuable content.
With high quality images you can take your prospective clients on a journey by showing behind-the-scenes images of yourself and past clients, share snippets of your lifestyle and create a personal connection.
I have worked with many different businesses in the past and when it comes to personal brand photo shoots it goes back to the same question: what do you want your audience to feel when they see your photographs on your website or social media.
I want to share with you my tips on how to prepare for your personal brand photo session.
I finally get around to post this photographs of this gorgeous sweethearts and their engagement party.
Sunil and Amber got engaged! Woohoo.
And a few days later as it is tradition in Sunil's family there loved ones got together to celebrate and welcome Amber in the family. The couple received traditional presents and sweets. There was lots of food, beautiful colours and wild dancing.
With all the different social media platforms we constantly have to create content. But your visual content shouldn't be just all about your products or your services. Make sure you tell people your story, share a bit about yourself and show some behind the scenes stuff. The best option to save time when photographing content for social media is to do it in bulk. Whether you have a professional personal brand photoshoot booked or a friend with a good camera helps you; the following questions might help you to think about fresh lifestyle content you can share with your audience.
I am quite impressed what we can do this days on our mobile phones; from taking and editing videos and photos to planning our business and life. There are so many amazing apps out there helping us with our daily routine. Below I've listed my favourite apps so far.
After filling out my Personal Brand Questionnaire earlier this year, Clare was drawn from a pot of 52 other amazing business women and won a one hour Personal Brand Photoshoot. Congratulations Clare and well done for braving the camera.
I want to say thank you to everyone for taking the time and answering all my questions. I didn't expect such a great response. This questionnaire helped me to understand more about the pain points my clients might have when looking for a personal brand photographer.
For my first ever Survey I used Survey Monkey and was suprised how easy it was to set up.
