Photography and Me

work life

“People buy from people” and bespoke brand photography firmly places you at the fore of your business giving you stand out within your field.

Brand photography visually demonstrates what makes you unique, interesting and why your ideal customer should buy from you.

I love helping my clients to tell their story with a brand photoshoot, even the slightly reluctant ones. Being in front of the camera is not everyone’s ‘happy place’, so whether you are relaxed about the idea of a shoot or feel like a deer in headlights, I can guide you and create with you photography that will take your business to the next level.

Photography has always a passion for me and turning it into my chosen career 14 years ago has been exciting, fun, life changing, freeing and fulfilling.

It is a constant inspiration to work with fellow entrepreneurs and business owners and I genuinely love that what I do makes such a difference to each business.

home life

Here we are, the Donovans! 🙂

As you can imagine, evenings and weekends can be busy! We have two energetic boys and love to get outdoors with them as much as we can walking, on bike rides, paddle boarding or sailing. This summer we spent many wonderful days at the Cotswold Water Park messing about. We also like to make things together, play games and get their imaginations going.

I grew up in Cornwall and visit my family whenever I can. I always feel so lucky to have grown by the sea, we spent so much time at the beach and I have many, many wonderful memories of growing up there.

I enjoy gardening too. There is nothing quite like an hour of pottering. Two years ago, we moved house and promptly started redesigning our front garden. You can imagine how thrilled we were when we won a Bronze medal in the TGV Front Garden a few months later, and then Gold the following summer.

I have a passion for floral photography, especially of the things I’ve grown. It is such a different pace of photography and I love creating moody botanical images. 

I love good food (hubby is an amazing cook) and wine, going on holidays abroad and dream of owning a holiday home in the sun.

I love working with my Brand Photographer Elizabeth Donovan. She intuitively understood the vision I had for my images and I am so excited to see the edited versions. Elizabeth has made the whole experience a joy and I know this is just the beginning of us working together.

Charlotte Mabbutt, Female Mindset and Manifestation Coach

Thank you Elizabeth. You have the ability not just to take an amazing image, but photographs that emotionally connect and tell a great story.

HEART FM Wiltshire (Global Radio)

We really love your photos!! You are so talented and and these photographs look brilliant. I can’t wait to add them into our customers website, they will make such a difference.

Paula at Swindon Design

Elizabeth worked with me to understand my audience and what I wanted to convey. I now have a wondeful library of photos that tell my brand story, I have used them across my website and social media with pride!

Tracy at Social Butterfly Digital

Stand out imagery with an eye for natural light and people. Awesome stuff! Gorgeous use of light, depth, composition and consistency all with great atmosphere and real emotion. If you use Elizabeth, not only would you get absolutely fantastic results but the dead certainty of leaving nothing to chance. Stunning!

Lotmead Farm

I was totally out of my comfort zone but Elizabeth made me feel at ease and made the whole process enjoyable. And the images? I LOVE them! I have used them on our website, social media, printed materials and more and they have made such a difference and we get so many comments about them.

Hadi at Rays Ice Cream

From the initial brand planning session through to the actual photo shoot, Elizabeth makes the process absolutely seamless and really takes the time to understand you, your business and what you are looking for. Elizabeth was wonderful to work with, so professional, and has produced shots that I am really happy with.

Annika Grizzell - Wealth Management Consultant

I needed to refresh my library of personal brand photos and also I have a new course to launch, for which I needed photos. I'm so glad I booked a shoot with Elizabeth, she is so knowledgeable and took time to plan with me beforehand the photos we'd take, my brand themes, colours and the outfits I'd wear. I'm so thrilled with the finished photos! It is absolutely worth the investment and I'm so glad I did it.

Ellen Ludlow - The Time Management Coach

Best business decision I made having a Brand Photoshoot with Elizabeth.

Pam, Business Owner - Eight Interactive
