Brand Photography for Lou Wood

Cheltenham Brand Photographer Nikki Kirk QGWP

“I have attempted things recently that I never thought I could do, all because of Nikki’s encouragement and passion.   

I just wish I could pick her up and put her in my pocket.”  Lou Wood

The Art of Sugar Flowers

What an absolute joy this brand photo shoot was with Lou Wood.

Lou’s business is Lou Wood Sugar Flowers. She has the most incredible experience built over many years of creating sugar craft and professional teaching. The perfect person to teach you this exquisite art form.

The key reason for Lou’s brand shoot was to create on brand imagery so that she could update her website and to create an initial bank of images to help with her marketing.

On location

We had chosen the fabulous Lords of the Manor for our location for Lou’s first brand shoot. Immediately following the time we made for brand portraits of Lou, she was running a sugar flower class in the Garden Room. And so it was an ideal opportunity to capture all of the imagery she needed for this current point in time.

“I have loved working with Nikki, from start to finish.  She has a natural ability to put everyone at ease as soon as she walks in the room. 

Our photo shoot was such an enjoyable day.”

Lou’s Brand Images

Even looking through a macro lens and knowing that the flowers in front of me were made from sugar, I was hard pressed to tell that they weren’t real flowers. They are individual works of art. And the best bit is that Lou runs classes to teach you how to make these!

Now I know you are all keen for me to stop typing and show you the images! So here is a small selection of the images we created together alongside Lou’s thoughts on the brand photography shoot.
