Introducing Blogtography Sessions | Leicester Blogtography Taster Day

I have recently launched Blogtography sessions, a cost-effective shoot to enable bloggers to have great imagery to accompany their content. To celebrate, I invited six lovely local Leicester bloggers to experience a mini shoot, and here’s a round-up of what we were able to create together!

For a number of years, I myself ran a blog, and I know first-hand just how important having great imagery is in order for your content to stand out. When I started, the blogosphere was mainly populated by relatable bloggers taking photos on their iPhone or tiny little point-and-shoot, however with the rise of image-based social media apps like Instagram and Pinterest, stunning photography has become paramount to achieving success as a blogger.

Most bloggers create a blog simply because they want to share their thoughts with the world. They may not have the technical knowledge, the gear or an Instagrammable backdrop to create the images they want. Blogging also takes up a lot of time, and I know just how many bloggers struggle with squeezing in a photo session with working a 9-5, especially in the winter. There’s also the fact that some many niches simply require you in front of the camera which, unless you have a tripod and remote, just makes things so much harder. That’s where my Blogtography sessions come in!

Renu from Thoughts Fashion Lifestyle/Renu Ravalia

For the Leicester taster day, I chose a variety of different bloggers I had fashion shoots with Nancy from Sugar, Darling? and Megan from Megan Elizabeth Lifestyle. Two fabulous family/lifestyle bloggers, Beccy from Raucous By Nature and Chloe from Beautiful Bundle of Chaos brought their little ones along for a mummy + me session, which was great fun! Turns out the kids were more interested in the prospect of getting an ice cream after, but who can blame them. Ice cream wins every time, right?!

I worked with the lovely Jen from Jen A Fit Life on a fitness shoot, which was something really different and enjoyable. Last call of the day was a personal branding session with Renu (who also has the Instagram account Thoughts Fashion Lifestyle) for her new digital marketing business, Renu Ravalia.

Stay tuned for the full posts with all the inside info, as well as my favourite images from each of the shoots, which will be live as each blogger uploads their blog post. This was the first in a series of Blogtography Taster Sessions I’m running this summer across the areas I cover. Keep an eye out for the images from my next taster days!
