AUTHENTIC BRAND STORIES
for Entrepreneurial & Small Business Women
Are you PETRIFIED at the thought of being the centre of attention in front of a camera?
Know you need to put your face out there for your brand, but struggle with the fear?
I know! I get it… I am EXACTLY the same!
Hello Lovely! I'm Ania, a natural light photographer with a niche in AUTHENTIC branding photography.
I’m obsessed with Personal and Business Branding Photography!
As a business owner myself, I understand the importance of setting yourself apart with custom imagery. It's one of the smartest branding investments you can make for your business. I love helping clients tell their BRAND STORIES and build a brand personality through authentic images.
BUT… I also totally understand the nerves involved in being the centre-of-attention in a photoshoot and how so many of us think we “look too fake” in photos.
So I do things a little differently… I try to REALLY get to know YOU! I do this through my branding pre-shoot strategy sessions which give me the edge I need to get an insight into YOU as a person, as well as an in-depth understanding of your business’s core values.
And there is one main requirement I ask of you… Be prepared to have FUN! LOTS of fun… as we work together to capture the essence of your authentic brand, to deliver images that create a personal connection with your customers and that tell YOUR compelling brand story.
I haven't always been a photographer though…
Originally from Perth, Australia, my career started out in the dental industry! Yes, that is right, I'm one of those people that most hate going to see (and many will tell us how much they hate us) - a dentist! I have spent 15 years helping patients love their smiles, overcome phobias & improve their oral hygiene, as well as running my own practice for almost 7 of those years. But I felt like something was always missing… The drive and spark to ignite more of my creative side!
So many people ask, 'Why not pursue a respectful, health professional career like dentistry?' The answer is easy, I LOVE what I do! It's that simple! I want to be behind the camera, use my creative streak, meet new people and create magic... Long story short, this is what makes me happy and gives me that spark I have been searching for!
Having recently moved to Queenstown, NZ I am excited to use my experience and branding knowledge to work with local entrepreneurs and small business owners to capture tell their Authentic Brand Stories.
Why Enriched By Light?
I’m a natural light photographer.
This means that instead of taking your branding images in a studio under artificial lights, I’ll use natural light whenever possible.
Why do I work this way? I want to create real images of you and your business to help you reach your clients in a sincere, trustworthy way.
Natural light is not only flattering on skin tones, but gives a truthful and approachable appearance to custom imagery. It is also ever changing, and the uniqueness of the light is hard to replicate from one shoot to another. This means that your images will never look like just another studio shoot. Your photos will always stand apart.
