Creative Headshots with Marissa

On Tuesday 2nd July, I was invited to visit Marissa at her lovely home in Whitworth to take some relaxed and creative portraits. Marissa needed images to use on her website to promote herself as a freelance translator and copywriter. I’m self-employed too, so I know the importance of building your personal brand. I love to capture personalities to add a little flair into my portraits and a fun headshot will stand out from all those serious corporate pictures.

Also when a client’s home is this beautiful it would be a shame not to use Marissa’s work-life space as a backdrop…

Welcome Home Little One

At home newborn sessions are perfect in those first few weeks when baby is brand new. I can travel to you, bringing all the equipment needed and use your surroundings to capture natural portraits of your family. Baby is much more comfortable and you’ll have everything you need to hand.

Amy & Jonathan in Ramsbottom

Amy and Jon wanted an outdoor session in the picturesque market town of Ramsbottom, Bury, where they live. With it’s beautiful Victorian architecture and dramatic Pennine landscape, I knew we wouldn’t have trouble finding photo spots that were full of character.

We had a walk through the town centre, stopping for chips at one of Amy & Jon’s favourite Fish & Chip shops (Amy even worked there in the past!) Then on to the park for photographs by the railway station and the River Irwell. We even had a little drive up into the moors and trekked about in the grass for photos with an impressive backdrop.

Finally, needing the warmth of the indoors, we headed back to Amy and Jon’s home for some last photographs at their front door. I couldn’t resist getting a shot of them with their two cat companions!
