I had the pleasure of meeting Robyn for the first time last summer…she is full of energy and smiles and describes herself as a serial mumpreneur! Just hearing about all of her businesses and projects makes me feel quite exhausted! One of the businesses she runs is called Mums the Business which helps mumpreneurs to promote their businesses and attract the right clients. If you are a mum in business do check out her website. She booked 2 of my headshot sessions, 1 for herself and 1 for her husband.
Here are some of the headshots I took of Robyn at Harts Boat Yard in Surbiton. The b&w shot on the left is right at the end of the session as we were having a coffee and a chat. I love the fact it is exactly how she looks as she’s chatting to you!
Robyn’s husband Neal is a well-known rugby player who used to play for London Irish and now coaches their youth academy. Unfortunately it didn’t mean much to me but Karl was very impressed when I told him who I had been photographing that day! Apparently he is the most capped player of the premiership ever…I don’t know much about rugby but even I’m impressed with that statistic! Neal only had professional photos of himself in his rugby kit, and needed some headshots of himself looking a little more formal now he’s a coach, but still relaxed and natural. I think these fit the brief!
And then, as couples never seem to have any photos of themselves together since their wedding day, I took a few shots of them together. We can’t quite remember what I said to get such big giggles in the left hand shot!
What a lovely happy couple they are! The eagle-eyed amongst you might spot that Robyn was also on the photography workshop I ran a few days after her headshot session, she certainly overdosed on me that week!
