The Country Lifestyle Collection. The Re-brand Part 2

So, you may have noticed a few changes on my website; and social media channels over the past week or so. As I mentioned in my previous blog post. I wanted to move away from Event Photography. Whilst I still love Event days; it was becoming quite clear to me, that it was no longer suiting my lifestyle needs and, if I am completely honest there is a rather large part of me that wanted to explore a more creative route.

2020 has given me so much time to explore my creative route. Being quite a introvert, I expected to explore only animal based portrait sessions. However; whilst I was capturing portraits of my lovely animal models, I couldn’t help but chat to their owners; about what has brought them and their animals together. I was so fascinated by their stories; I found myself wanting to capture their story more and more. Whilst editing the images; I would always find that my personal favourites would always be one ones with the animals and their owners in together.

For most of the photoshoots I have done this year; there seemed to be a reoccurring theme running throughout our many conversations. For most Country or Equestrian families, they would love to have a family photoshoot; however, they do not have the time to get to a studio; and in all honesty; it doesn’t feel very ‘them’.

Most importantly; regardless of what type of farmer you, or part you play within the countryside, or Equestrian discipline you favour. It isn’t just a hobby or merely a job, to put food on the table; it is a Lifestyle. We live and breathe it; it is in our DNA. With this in mind a studio set up, may not be the obvious choice to capture your families’ story.

For me a photoshoot should capture the very essence of your families lifestyle. If you are a family that usually mucks in together and enjoys each others company; it only seems natural to me that I should capture that. Why would you get suited and booted, and if you are anything like me; and feel damn right bloody awkward dressed up and, have more of a grimace on your face than a natural smile!

Highly recommend Emma, we had a fantastic photo shoot and she was very patient, even when the animals misbehaved! She was friendly and we were able to have a chat and a laugh whilst maintaining a level of professionalism. I am absolutely thrilled with my photos!

Your Story

The Country Lifestyle Collection is all about capturing your story. I think there really is something special about having your set of images printed; and then sharing them round for everyone to see. Images serve as part of your families’ heritage: like family heirlooms.
