Lifestyle Commercial Photography


Lifestyle Commercial Photography can positively impact your business and in this blog I tell you the reasons why!

Having great photos for your business can significantly impact its success in several ways. In this blog I will go through the reasons why I believe Lifestyle Commercial Photography is a must for your business and brand identity, and how I can help you achieve this.

High-quality and visually appealing photos catch people’s attention and make a strong first impression. When potential customers or clients visit your website or social media profiles, compelling photos can instantly convey professionalism, credibility, and attention to detail. They help create a positive perception of your brand, making it more likely for people to engage with your business. The first point of call in my service is for us to have a consultation. During this time I find out more about you, your business, your ethos and what you want to portray to your potential new clients.

Photos play a crucial role in shaping your brand identity and storytelling. By using consistent and visually appealing images across your marketing materials, you can establish a strong and recognisable brand image. These photos can showcase your products, services, team members and company culture. This allows customers to connect with your brand on a deeper level. During our initial consultation we will discuss styling, colours, shooting style, shoot locations etc to really help create the perfect shoot for you and your business that portrays your brand identity. This is a great time to creatively brainstorm. Having managed a variety of businesses in different areas of commerce prior to photography, coupled with a high understanding of human psychology and how they “shop” I’ve found I can use my professional and personal experiences to really craft the perfect photography for your brand needs.

Great photos are more likely to be shared, liked and commented on by your target audience. They have the potential to go viral on social media platforms, which can significantly increase brand visibility and reach. Engaging visuals can also encourage users to spend more time on your website or social media profiles. This will boost user engagement and increasing the likelihood of conversion. Here at FionaMillsArt, we love social media and will also actively share and tag your services in our posts, which in turn helps to boost visibility for us all!

Photos have the power to communicate complex messages quickly and effectively. They can convey emotions, tell stories, and showcase the benefits or features of your products or services. High-quality photos enable you to capture attention and communicate your key messages in a visually appealing way. This is very important because it makes it easier for potential customers to understand and connect with your business. Often when planning your shoot and conceptualising, we will look at potential tag lines and messages you may want to portray in your future marketing. This results in a delivery of images you can use straight away, or store up your sleeve for that perfect seasonal marketing moment later down the line.

In a competitive market, great photos can help your business stand out from the crowd. Unique and eye-catching visuals can make a lasting impression and differentiate your brand from competitors. By showcasing your products or services in a visually appealing manner, you can highlight their unique selling points (USP) and attract customers who resonate with your brand’s aesthetic and values. Make sure to think about your USP and use it! Taking the time to ensure we understand you and your business is the most effective way to capture unique lifestyle commercial photography to sell your business.

Compelling photos can influence purchasing decisions. When customers see high-quality images that showcase the benefits and features of your products, they are more likely to feel confident about their potential purchase. Professionally photographed products or services can convey a sense of trust and quality, leading to increased sales and revenue. We love seeing businesses grow and succeed, especially in this difficult economic climate. How you market that is up to you, but know we’ll be cheering on your wins from the wings!

For those that say “I don’t like having my picture taken,” or “Studio portraits just aren’t for us”  when considering a family portrait session, perhaps you should look into booking a Lifestyle Family Photographer. Portraiture isn’t all studio lighting and sitting on boxes while someone gives your hair a boost and you stare longingly into the lens. One of my favourite types of family photography is “lifestyle”. This is all about capturing you and yours doing what you do, where you do it. As a wedding and portrait photographer based in Chichester, West Sussex I have the pleasure of travelling around much of the South Coast for these sessions….Brighton, Worthing, Horsham, Arundel, Portsmouth and further. I just love exploring new locations!

Yasmyn and her family suggested we head up to Rackham, a small village near Amberley, West Sussex for their session. Their kids are so familiar and comfortable with this place it was a perfect pick.

How better to capture kids being kids than by letting be, well….kids! Climbing sand mountains and heading into the woods is a great adventure! This area was so quiet, it was as if we were the only ones there!

When your location has perfectly created dens built by previous adventurers, and caves carved over time into the hill, you can’t help but get swept away with the fun that is being had. Is now the time to admit I made sure I was wearing my Dr Martens to ensure no creepy spiders made their way over my toes or ankles!!

After a false start or two with heavy rain, Chris, Vanya and I managed to find a dry day to embark on their maternity shoot. As a Chichester Bump to Baby Photographer I feel most lucky with our local surroundings. Arundel being one. Off we headed with our scarves and hats to trek around Swanbourne Lake on a sunny, Autumn morning.

Vanya, like me, is Bulgarian (well, half really. Scotland claims the other half of me), but as I’m out of practise with my lingo it was great to dust off the mother-tongue for a couple of hours during our session… but not all the time, that wouldn’t have been fair on Chris! Swanbourne Lake in Autumn was looking so photogenic. As a West Sussex Photographer, I should use it far more than I do. The colours as we walked around the lake were just breathtaking!

As you can see, Vanya carries her pregnancy beautifully. It is clear from the adoration in Chris’ eyes that they are very much in love. I loved the bareness of the trees as we walked round Swanbourne Lake. I found myself reminded of old film black and whites photos that I used to take before we all went digital mad! The images below really lent themselves to a vintage-film-look.

After one lap we detoured back to theirs to finish off the shoot in a slightly warmer environment. Being a Chichester Bump to Baby Photographer means I’m always on the lookout for interesting backgrounds, alternative shots and humorous moments (Chris certainly didn’t fail to disappoint with the humour!) The striking red wood panelling was incredible (I love those lines!) The simplicity of bare walls and clear space was a perfect contrast to the twisting chaos of the woodland shots from earlier.

Worthing Maternity Photography | Becky & Darryll | Bump to Baby

A fine, warm Sunday afternoon proved to be a fabulous setting for a Worthing Maternity Photography shoot. Becky is a brilliant make up artist & beauty therapist so while chatting via a mutual wedding client we touched on her then secret pregnancy, and her desire to have a Bump to Baby shoot. Becky didn’t have a hard time convincing her partner, Darryll, that pregnancy photography was a necessary rite of passage for an expecting mum! We chose a lifestyle maternity photography session as it enabled us to get more creative and touch on who they are as a couple in their familiar environment, which in this case was Worthing, right on the seafront.

Becky had set up a Pinterest board full of her likes and dislikes for her Bump to Baby shoot, and as always, we use that as a starting point from which we brainstorm ideas and get down to the nitty gritty of the Worthing Maternity Photography session. Using their home first we were able to take some beautiful shots (and some more fun ones) in what will be the baby room.

As the lovely golden hour was setting in we took a stroll towards Worthing seafront passing a putting green on the way. As Darryl is a keen golfer (and Becky a golf widow) it was befitting to use this as a backdrop!

Worthing seafront was pretty quiet, a perfect time for those warm light pregnancy portraits. I fell in love with the symmetry of the sun shelter, a great frame to personalise their images.

Becky looks absolutely stunning at 31 weeks pregnant, they are going to be such lovely parents! I cannot wait for the end of November to meet their newborn and continue with the baby photography session.
