Last month while preparing for the Belle Route wedding marketing bootcamp I spent days looking at websites, social media accounts… what makes one better, more compelling or more attractive than the other & Esther did the same! Interestingly enough, after our research we both came back with the exact same general critique… most websites, blogs, small entrepreneurs lack of personalisation & pictures when it comes to their online presence! I understand why someone wouldn’t want to mix his or her personal life with his business, but in today’s highly completive internet savvy environment it is imprescindible as entrepreneurs and small business owners (especially in the service industry) to connect with our potential clients, which is incredibly hard on a website with an about page written in third person, without any professional picture or with a picture where the face is hardly visible. They say your eyes are the mirror to your soul and just as you wouldn’t talk to anyone on a personal meeting without looking into their eyes, you cannot do it on your website either!
As a professional photographer who has done quite a few business portraits in the past, I do understand however the complexity & reluctantness that this topic can raise, so I recruited two of my favourite girls from the Barcelona wedding industry, Alley and Laura, and together we came up with a fun new project that can hopefully help some of you in need of a more personalised & more professional online presence.
We are super douper excited and happy to announce our first professional “Portrait Day” in Barcelona on the 1st of June!
You can sign up to our fun filled girly day where not only will Alley & Laura doll you up to look your absolute bestest (while looking totally natural!) but you’ll also take part in a photoshoot with me so you can finally put a face to your brand! Who’s in?

From Laura: `I feel that having my hair and makeup done for my portfolio pictures made it all the more professional. Not only that, the results where fabulous and I got to feel like a super star for the day! ‘
