Sarah is THE passion and creative design goddess (yup that good!) behind Sarah Willard Couture. She has a boutique in Eccleshall, Staffordshire that is busting at the seams with gorgeous sample dresses and works in progress. When Sarah and I first spoke on the phone there was a need for some images of her on her website and in her marketing as up until now it was all about the dresses. Sarah understood the need for her to come out of hiding a little with some business portrait photography and show the business woman and fashion designer behind her very well established brand.
This shoot had to show a little more of Sarah in action. The great care and attention that goes into each of her creations is such a personal give and very much a part of the amazing service she offers. Watching Sarah in her studio at work, I knew I had to capture the absolute love for what she does in her images. The obvious location for this shoot therefore had to be in her studio and boutique.
The light poured into the studio and Sarah amongst her work just worked so well. It was freezing that day (not unusual these days huh!) but we managed to get out as well for some gorgeous portraits too. The light was to scrumptious to miss.
Sarah was so very trusting of my advice and was delighted with the end results, a real ‘punch in the air’ type of day for me as I do so love to coax the very best of people and Sarah’s delight over her images made it all worth while. She was a pleasure to photograph and she now has a great portfolio of images she can use for her marketing and PR. Very pleased to see some of her images on her website and social media already!
I think you can really get a feel for Sarah and her work from them.
