Over the last six months, I have had the pleasure of working with the lovely Saym from Velvetier. We have done two shoots with different purposes. The first shoot was a full Business Branding and Headshot session with some styled product photos. The second shoot we did was purely as styled product session.
All these goodies below are from Velvetier’s new chocolate range… and let me tell you.. they are ALL amazing! I gifted some of these to friends and family after the shoot and everyone was like… where did you get that chocolate from??
The second and most recent shoot we did was capturing Velvetier’s new Valentine’s, Easter and Bonbonerie Range. One of the things I absolutely love about Velvetier and Saym’s creativity is that the products and yummy treat’s that she creates are never boring. They are always full of incredibly flavour, love and creativity.
We photographed a variety of different products that could be used for wedding Bonboneire gifts. We captured rocky road, brittle and so many pretty chocolate flavours!
For Valentine’s Day we capture this stunning gold raspberry rocky road. It was sooooo good!! (One of the perks of photographing rocky road is that you get to taste them too!!)
And these stunning Easter products!! How gorgeous are these beautiful eggs.. and they are filled with yummy surprises insides!
And the final Easter product I capture were these gorgeous Easter bunnies!! I mean, how adorable are they!!
As well as all the beautiful product photographs that we captured for Velvetier, we also captured some business branding photos of Saym doing what she loves. Business branding images are all about showcasing you, your business and what your business does. In today’s marketing climate, people want to see who you are, the face behind the business and peer into the curtain behind how you do what you do. We need images for our website and all social media channels that we can tell stories around. Saym really wanted to incorporate her personality and the behind the scenes of what goes into making her beautiful sweets.
And the favourite Saym photo so far. As part of the first Personal Branding session, Saym really wanted to capture a fun headshot of herself. She loves chocolates and all things sweet and I asked her if she had any requests and she said, “Can I tip chocolate over me?” and I went HELL YES!! So this was the end result.. and this totally sums up Saym.
She actually used this photo on a banner for a food expo and it stopped people in their tracks.. They were like.. Is that you? Why? And it became such a great conversation starter for people interacting with her stand. And that is the power of great imagery. It starts a conversation. It shows your potential clients who you are. And this is why I love capturing these shoots! I want to help my clients feel empowered through photography to put their best foot forward.
