Perth Branding Photographer – Amazing before and after of my client

This blog is about transformation.  Firstly, transformation of the mind which controls our perception and therefore our reality.  Then transformation of the body.

Recently, I received a phone call from Kimberly Manning wanting to book in for my Executive Women’s Package. Kimberly is a Transformation Life Coach and Master Practitioner in NLP. Her business is called Rapid Results Life Coaching and she needed to update her online presence because, simply, she’s undergone a profound physical change in her appearance.  Keep reading to find out how Kimberly did this and see what she looks like now.  Clearly she walks the talk.

I’ve included (with Kimberley’s permission) a couple of before shots that were taken before I met Kimberley in 2014. Scroll down to  see the incredible transformation of her in the photographs that I took of her.  I can’t believe it’s the same person – it’s an incredible achievement on her part. It’s not just hair and make up and it’s certainly not photoshop as I never over edit my images.

How did Kimberly transform herself?  Kimberly is a Master NLP Coach and she used techniques to change how she viewed food and herself. She retrained her brain and effectively changed her lifestyle.  NLP is Neuro Linguistic Programming. It’s a set of techniques proposed for modifying behaviour in achieving self improvement, self management, and more effective interpersonal communications. Based on certain assumptions about how language and movements of eyes and body affect brain (neurological) functions, NLP is similar to self-hypnosis.  It works.  I know it does as I have used it too.  It’s changing the filing system in your brain so that it becomes more effective to create the life you want.

Contact Kimberly Manning if you want to discuss how you can also transform any areas of your life. Her number is 0422 465 445.  

2016 is the year to rebrand your online image so book a photoshoot with me – it will change the way you see yourself.

Perth Pet Photographer – Sally needs a home

I love animals.  I have been photographing them for 33 years, although they can challenge you at times.  You definitely need a special kind of patience when you’re behind the camera.  So, when I received a request from Sydney Animal Second-Chance Inc to photograph one of their foster dogs in order to assist finding her a home, I couldn’t say no.  

Meet Sally.  She has to be one of the easiest dogs to photograph…ever.  She was calm, quiet and friendly.  Sally has been rescued from a Pound.  We don’t know her full story but I think she was surrendered by her previous owner – goodness knows why as she is so lovely.  

Sally would suit a home without other dogs as she just wants all your attention but she loves interacting with other dogs when she’s out for walks etc.

When a dog or cat is surrendered to a Pound by the owner, it is often a death sentence as the Pound knows that nobody is looking for the animal. Pounds are not rescue centres, they can only keep animals for a certain time period.  Thankfully, we have rescue organisations such as Sydney Animal Second-Chance Inc who visit Pounds and take a number of animals into their care.  But they cannot take them all.  Rescue are funded by public donation.  They are overworked and full to capacity all the time.  This is when Foster Carers help out and provide a safe and loving temporary environment until a permanent home is found.

This very short video will clearly show you Sally’s light that shines from within. 

If you would like to meet Sally to consider her to part of your family, please call Patricia Hood on 0404 690 014.  You can go here to find out more details about Sally.  She’s beautiful.  Please consider taking her home. 

Capture your pets for all time so that you never, ever forget their precious light.

Perth Pet Photographer – Is this the hardest subject to photograph?

I love photographing cats and I’ve been doing it for most of my life.  However, cats do as they please and therefore they aren’t the most co-operative subjects to put in front of your camera.  Watch the short slideshow (inc some bloopers) of the photoshoot and read to the end to get my my 5 best tips to creating better images of your cat.

When Pebbles and Gilbert arrived at my studio last Friday, a thunderstorm was about to hit Perth.  These 5 month old kittens went straight into exploring mode and it was my job to get them to relax and connect with me.  Luckily, I speak Cat.

If you find it difficult to get gorgeous photos of your cat then check out my 5 top tips: 

  1. Check the background, if there is lots of clutter then remove it.
  2. Be patient.  If you cat is stressed then you need to wait until they are more relaxed to get good shots.  Remember too that cats have short attention spans.
  3. Use a favourite toy to entice.  Cats often don’t respond to sounds like dogs do as they are more visual so stick to their favourite toy to create energy.
  4. Use a trail of treats to entice them to an area where you’d like to photograph them – If you pick a cat up and place them where you want them, they will inevitably move.  It must be on their terms.
  5. Finally, have your camera settings already worked out – you can then concentrate on taking the photograph… and you often need to be quick.

Your pet, like Pebbles and Gilbert, maybe just a youngster or perhaps they are now in their twilight.  It doesn’t matter.  Photographs are a return ticket to a moment in time that’s otherwise gone forever.

Perth Branding Photographer – Finding your Zest+Zing

Nutritionist Amanda Ford, from Sydney’s Dee Why’s Zest+Zing, had a problem.  Her new clients thought the stock image of a woman on the front page of her website was actually her, until they met Amanda face to face.  Both blonde, both attractive but clearly not the same person.

In fact, none of the images on Zest+Zing‘s website reflected the true vibrant energy of Zest+Zing’s Founder, Amanda.  Like many companies, it seem too easy to just buy a few online images instead of using your own.   The truth is, if you don’t  believe it then others won’t either.

My solution is the Branding Your Business Package.  This gives clients a library of authentic images that are created at my Studio and on location i.e. at a nearby beach etc. If you sell products, then bring them with you. Amanda brought props – lots of delicious fruit and vegetables, hand made almond milks and smoothies (via her Thermomix) which tasted so much better than those commercial nut milks (I tried to eat half of the props at the end of the shoot). 

We created some amazingly beautiful authentic images of both Amanda and her business – to show people who she is, what Zest+Zing is about and how she can solve your health issues.  

If you are having problems with your health such as digestive problems, fatigue, stress/anxiety, immune function or just feel you need a detox or lose some weight (and keep it off)  then Amanda is experienced in treating all of these problems.  She can even assist you with hormonal imbalances.  Do something for yourself and take charge of your health today.  Without your health, life can feel like a really hard place to be.  Call Amanda on 0410 799 449 to find out how you can find your Zest+Zing.

If you would like to market your business with your own authentic images, then call us on 0434549372.

Perth Pet Photographer – Is this the oldest Staffie in Australia?

If Rubble is not the oldest Staffie in Australia, then he’s certainly one of the most loved dogs I have ever photographed.

A year ago, I photographed Rubble on his 16th birthday.  A few days ago, I photographed him again.  At the grand age of 17, I’m wondering if Rubble is the oldest Staffie in Australia?

I don’t need to tell you that the bond of love between Rubble and his Mum is unbreakable – you can see it in these 17th birthday photos of him.  They’ve been inseparable since Christine adopted him when he was just 8 weeks old.  That was 1998 – last century!

Why is pet photography one of my most favourite genres to photograph?  It’s because our pets are our babies and I connect with animals deeply, even when I’ve only met them for the first time. 

Contact Jane Earle Photography to capture your pet’s precious light so you can connect to them for the rest of your life.  Call  0434549372 to discuss your requirements.
