Meet the Maker Session
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with creative businesses. I thank Instagram for the wonderful revival of small and personal shops, the makers and the creatives. It seems that now is the time for those businesses to really shine, or perhaps they have always shone, but they were a little harder to find. Either way, Instagram has created a beautiful community for the creative business owner. With this in mind, I feel that it’s so important that your audience really gets to know you – and not only through your words, but by seeing who you are, too! I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one here – I often feel like I really know someone, even if only through social media, and this is particularly true when I know what that person looks like. Regularly allowing your audience to see you helps them engage in a more meaningful way.
The Meet the Maker Sessions are aimed at the creative business owner, and are a mixture of lifestyle headshots, as well as photos of you at work. If you make physical products, we can document that beautiful process. This can work if you have a service based business too. If you’d like to know more, please get in touch at [email protected]
The star of this Meet the Maker session is Claire Culley – also known as The Thrive Mama. Claire is a hypnotherapist based in Nottingham. She offers one to one sessions and often speaks at women’s only events, on topics including anxiety and confidence building. It was a pleasure getting to know Claire and finding out about her journey to becoming a business owner.
Here’s just a small selection of Claire’s photos:
