Branding Collaboration & Photoshoot with Tammy’s Table & Bohemia Ekko Creative
When I work with a new client, I like to understand their individual needs and what they are trying to achieve. It is really helpful for me to understand as much as possible about their style, lifestyle and personality.
In Tammy’s case she has transitioned from a corporate work environment to a more casual one, and she wanted some new brand images to reflect this change.
I think many people have a preconceived idea that only celebrities and A-listers use personal stylists, or that it is a luxury reserved for people with big shopping budgets, when it is actually a service that anyone can benefit from. Tammy is a great example of this. I created some brand new looks for her using existing pieces from her wardrobe, simply by creating combinations that she had never considered. She has now booked me in for a wardrobe audit and refresh, which means she will have a whole new wardrobe without having to go shopping.
For me, there is nothing more satisfying than helping a client re-gain their confidence and feel good in what they are wearing. It is so common for people to lose their way a little style-wise, and my clients often just need a little guidance and understanding of what styles and colours work best for their shape and colouring. Wearing clothes that make you feel good is truly a game changer!
It is lovely to work with a client and see them develop a better understanding of what styles, shapes, and colours to look for and where to find them.
There is often a lot of confusion around what styles suit different age groups, and in many cases my clients just need some direction with what items to add to their wardrobe to make every day dressing effortless.
I really enjoyed working with both Tammy and Grier on this occasion. As well as taking the photos, Grier complemented my styling with hair and makeup and we all agreed that the result was ‘very Tammy’. Grier also offers a very personalised service – on this occasion she brought some chocolate freckles to the photo shoot, something which is very ‘on brand’ for Tammy!
Tammy ended up with a portfolio of up-to-date images that she can use on her website and social media. But more importantly, she now has the confidence to play with her wardrobe and wear outfits which are comfortable and stylish, reflecting who she is as a business owner, wife, mother, and socially active extrovert!
