"Valerie has been invaluable to the growth of my business. Without her help and advice my business would not be where it is today.
She took stunning photos and videos of me in action, directed the styling of my recipes and has helped and taught me how to make my social media stand out. I am now able to create my own social-media posts and make changes on my website too. I can highly recommend Valerie, you can rely on her, she is punctual, trustworthy, creative, imaginative and a great visionary."

Food photography, product photography, fashion photography, website photos, social-media snaps, lifestyle blog photos, personal brand pics and book content photos. Get the most beautiful photos for your marketing and give the best impression you can to the world. A pictures says a thousand words so, save yourself the effort and get straight to the heart of your customer with the right images A fast and affordable photographer sees your products and services through the eyes of your customer and presents them in ways you never thought of.
If a pictures says a thousand words, video is the ultimate communication. Moving images, speech, music and special effects reach into the heart and mind of your client to get your message across. Many potential customers are resistant to reach out to you because they don't know who you are and what will happen next. Video is the prefect way to show you are approachable, professional and unique among your competition.
Potential customers have a lot of distractions and a short attention span. Every word counts to get them interested in your products and services. Writing for business is not like speaking or writing to friends - it needs to be snappy and convincing. Having someone else write and/or edit your words brings perspective and professionalism.
Blogging is a popular way to speak to your audience and show them your wares. But, not everyone is a great writer or has time to write. Hiring someone else makes it easier, faster and better when they have perspective on your business. You can have blogs written from scratch or just edited from your draft. Combine this with lifestyle photography for really noteworthy influencer marketing.
The hardest page to write on a website is the one 'about' you. It's tricky to sound confident without sounding arrogant. It's difficult to see your personal story from an onlooker's perspective. And which bits to tell and which to leave out? Having someone else interview you and write about you cuts through the confusion and gives you an impressive bio. Personal brands need compelling personal stories.
Email marketing is a foundation of modern business. BUT, getting noticed is harder and harder. Boring, repetitive, irrelevant and weak emails are ignored and waste your time and resources. Eye-catching, interesting, fun and useful emails are welcomed by your customer, build a relationship and increase sales. Have email done for you or just edited from your first draft.
E-books are a popular way to connect with customers. Hard-copy books lend you brand authority. Bad books of any type can ruin your first impression, wasting your time and loosing you customers. From generating book ideas, to drafting and editing, having a great book is an asset to your business. Get support with your book so it's snapped-up by the market and sends the message you want to the world!
