Personal Branding Photo Session with Fleet Florist Fuchsia Blooms

Why have branding photos

Whether you’re a fledgling business or you’ve been at this for years, you need personal branding photos. We all need to get our faces at the forefront of our businesses, because people buy from people. Covid and the lockdowns were hard on many small businesses but lots seem to be getting back into the swing of things. Having spoken to many business owners, they said they’d had time to reassess, to clarify their goals or even diversify their offering. All of which can require new branding photography. If you’ve got a new offering you need new photos to show the world what you do.

The lovely Jane of Fuchsia Blooms Florist has been in business for several years, selling beautiful fresh, scented British grown flowers from her plot in Hampshire. Jane mixes in herbs and fruit, as well as wild gathered plants to make really exciting and wonderfully perfumed bouquets. Her plants are all organic and she reuses and recycles everything that she can in the process.

Jane grows her plants at home in the garden as well as at her allotment. It’s such a pretty space, as you can see. It was great to see her in her element; watering cutting stems and tweaking plants. The photographs really show her passion for all things floral. She’s not just able to put together remarkable luxurious bouquets, but she grows a huge amount of plants from seed, cuttings and bulbs too.

Show Your Expertise

These next few photos show Jane in action, making up the bouquets from her garden grown flowers. It was lovely to be able to quiz her on the rarer varieties that she grows and to get some tips from her for flowers that I’d like to grow in my garden. Her knowledge is really extensive.

And here is one of her with trays of some of the young plants from her greenhouse.

Show Your New Offerings

And now Jane, who I have to say is genuinely one of the most creative people I know, has branched out into cakes as well. We had a relaxed morning with lots of chat and laughter, as she made up bouquets and added finishing touches to some of her fabulous cakes. Just take a look at the intricate detail of her sugar craft – and who better to be able to make such amazing sugar flowers than a florist! Get in touch with Jane at Fuchsia Blooms
