Meet The Client
I first met Emma when we were both exhibiting at a Small Business Owners event. We got to talking about her new site, and how she needed some photography as part of the launch of her new business. Emma really wanted to stand out from other floristry businesses online especially. She knew that in order to do this, she needed great photography to show off her deluxe brand.
We had an initial meeting to explore the story behind her brand and I learned all about the extra studying in Floristry that Emma had done, and quickly understood just how much she had done to distance herself from the rest of her market.
Session 1 – Funeral Flowers
Emma made a flower pillow, a nautical anchor, two different flower sprays and some bouquets to show different styles of floral arrangements that were often requested for funerals.
Taking a journey all around the North East, beginning at King Edwards Bay in Tynemouth, working our way around Tynemouth and then headed over to North Shields Fish Quay.
We visited a Chapel of Rest to get some shots of Emma’s floral arrangements inside a Hearse and on top of a coffin.
We finished off at Blyth at the Bandstand, and used some cobbled ground as a great backdrop surface.

Session 3 – Commercial Flowers & Headshots
To get the right mix of flowers photography for this part of Emma’s branding message we needed to get flowers photography both in different commercial settings, as well as in a studio lit environment and context. During office hours, I joined Emma on her rounds to capture flower displays that she would be taking to her very varied clients around town.

In the Studio
For the studio lit and more controlled environment imagery, Emma wanted to really focus in on flowers themselves. She knew that when she would be sending gifts to clients, and then working on specific graphics and design she would need really close up images of flowers to hand.
