“I’ve been a writer and translator for many years, and though I have a very basic site for advertising my professional linguistic services, I’ve never had a dedicated website that I can be proud of that also mentions my creative work! For the first time I feel ready to start building a site with more dedicated space to highlight my writing work, passions and collaborative projects. I want to have an online space that represents me and that I can share with others more widely. So I decided to invest in quality photos that would give a personalised visual element, and I immediately thought of booking with Jess (for whom I’d done some proofreading work in the past!). I knew her work is extremely high calibre, beautiful and has a wonderful energy to it.
The shoot went even better than I could have hoped! I was very nervous and tired that day, so I was initially worried it might not turn out well. I had never done a professional photoshoot before, but Jess was so kind and flexible and focused, she made me feel completely at ease and it was really fun! We were able to try several different backgrounds and layouts, and I love the results. There’s a wide variety of shots that could be used for different purposes, and I feel excited to be able to use these pictures to represent myself proudly as a writer. I feel like Jess really captured my personality and some great natural moments, as well as some beautiful places in the city of Sheffield. My site is still a work in progress, but I’m really looking forward to the next step! I feel more prepared. Having these photos has just been a massive confidence boost, so I’d definitely recommend Jess to other people thinking of having professional shots done.”
