Vivienne is an absolutely incredible photographer. From the very start she’s amazing! I was so nervous about having my headshots for my business done and she made me feel so at ease. She had my brief and worked to it perfectly! I felt so comfortable and she made me feel amazing! I may have gone in camera shy, but I came away with confidence and happiness! The whole experience was brilliant and was one of my best days this year! The photo’s that came back were fantastic and I was so spoilt for choice! I also won my Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday award with one of the photo’s Vivienne did!
So, I took the plunge having never had a professional headshot before. My business is growing, and I wanted all references to shout ‘me’. Selfies were no longer an option. From the second I arrived at Vivienne’s home studio I was very quickly made to feel comfortable and at ease. A fresh cafetière of coffee and easy conversation before being given easy to follow instructions about how to make sure Vivienne was able to capture the best and most authentic version of me – Mandy Noss – Independent Cabi Stylist. As a Personal Stylist it was so important to me that this was just right. I have had so many compliments, but the very best was someone who said my style and personality shines through. I cannot recommend Vivienne or the experience highly enough. Everyone should be #vivienned.
Have some headshots they said. Eek I said!! Along came the talented Vivienne Kane – Photographer who has managed to turn a “I hate having my photo taken” gal into a “that was amazing can we do it all again” lady!! To even share images of myself is a step up but I can honestly say I am so pleased with them that I have no hesitation. The whole experience was amazing. Vivienne manages to put you at ease & capture all the good bits. I can’t wait to use them in all my marketing. The only problem was deciding which to have & now which to use!
I was ‘Vivienned’ a couple of weeks ago now and am thrilled with the shots she captured. I really don’t like having photographs taken, but Vivienne was amazing. She put me at ease, teased out the best angles and with sympathetic lighting worked her magic. Vivienne’s attention to detail is meticulous but in a non-fussy way which made the whole experience a pleasure rather than an ordeal! I’m thrilled with the selection of shots which I chose to support the various aspects of our business. The images are just right for a professional first impression without the forced corporate stuffiness which professional portrait photography can often present. Thank you, Vivienne! You’re a genius in front of and behind that lens!
I wholeheartedly recommend Vivienne for your business headshot. Her approach to everything is consummately professional, from the very first impression on her website, through the initial contact, to her advice and support prior to the shoot, the shoot itself and the finished images. Most importantly for most of us who are not naturals in front of the camera, Vivienne’s warm, friendly and encouraging manner during the shoot helped to turn this “ugly duckling” into a… well, in this case, a “much less ugly duckling!
I can’t recommend Vivienne highly enough. I first met her some two years ago when I lived in Ashby, as I needed some professional photographs. In those days – I was brunette and I was absolutely thrilled with the results! Two years on, having gone blond and with my job moving me down to the south coast – it was time for some new profile pictures! I couldn’t find any Photographer down here who I felt comfortable with and who I felt could deliver the same gorgeous results as Vivienne! I bit the bullet and got in touch with Vivienne again and travelled some 180 miles each way to get my new profile pictures. Yet again – I am delighted with the results! Well worth the drive! Not only is Vivienne the consummate professional, she is a lovely lady too. I will definitely only go to Vivienne in the future when needing more photographs. I highly recommend – you won’t be disappointed!
I needed professional heads shots for my website and found Vivienne on Facebook. I was immediately impressed with her work and made contact. Her professional approach is evident from your initial point of contact. She was clear, concise and informative, which helped to put me at ease. I am not one who enjoys having my picture taken and was amazed at how well Vivienne addressed my apprehensions. I nervously awaited the outcome and must confessed that I could not have been more pleased. Dislike having your picture taken? Not confident in front of the camera? Then Vivienne is the one to go to. That’s coming from someone who is not easily pleased.
Vivienne is expert at making you feel relaxed while being photographed (which I usually hate!). Before your session she sends you hints on what to wear / make-up etc for the best results – invaluable! The end result amazes me because somehow, she makes you look like you WANT to look but don’t think you do… I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Getting a professional photograph taken is not something most of us do often and many, I am sure, don’t relish. I found the experience to be so simple and straightforward thanks to Vivienne’s friendly and professional approach. I would highly recommend her.
I am not a fan of having my photo taken, hiding behind the tall people at every opportunity! Vivienne made the whole process enjoyable and fun. She has a wonderful warmth and ability to help to you relaxed and feel comfortable. I am so delighted with the photos and all the after support she provides from helping to select the final images through to helping with getting them loaded on to social media.
