Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of meeting Emily Atkinson, founder of The Beautiful Book Company. The Beautiful Book Company create beautiful, bespoke, hand crafted literary-based gifts. From tailored book subscription to book hampers by genre, they cater for all book lovers, from babies and teenage bookworms to older readers (often notoriously difficult to buy original gifts for!). Emily’s brief for me was to inject some life into their photography, as her website was showcasing her products but not including the readers or what happens “behind the scene” when the gifts are put together. After a good brainstorm, we planned our session to capture readers in action, whilst making sure that the product was still centre stage.
Here are a few examples of how the photos are being used on The Beautiful Book Company’s Instagram feed: Our young models were just brilliant and I captured a range of images for my client to use on their website and social media, here are some of my favourites…
Working with Stephanie was a great experience. She really took the time to understand what I needed, and get under the skin of the business to shape her thinking. She was mindful of our budget and how much time we needed, whilst delivering a selection of beautiful shots which I absolutely love. I can’t recommend her more highly.
