getting to know a small business owner
Let me introduce you to the lovely Ika from Stella Moissanite. She’s the beauty and the brains behind the amazing jewellery you’ll see in some of these photos from our recent in-home personal branding photo shoot.
We got together on a lovely summer’s day in Parkhurst, Johannesburg to get some “story telling” images for her brand. These are the types of photos that she can use to share the personality behind what (and who) makes Stella so unique.

Doing an in-home branding photoshoot is always a lovely idea especially for ladies who work from home because all your usual comforts are right there.
And, you can include the rest of the “team members” into a few of your photos as well – trust me, they LOVE the attention.
I like to encourage using your products as props in your shoot as it serves as an added bonus for product-based brands. These photos add a bit of character and are perfect for social media, blogging, and other marketing campaigns.
And, then it was time for a change in location! So, we found ourselves a little spot at the wonderful Kolonaki Greek Kouzina on 4th Avenue, and dug into some pita and dips in between shots.
You can find their menu and other details on their website.
I like to do as much planning as I can before each shoot so that, on the day, we get to just “hang out”. That way I know that we’ll get amazing shots AND have a good time together – it’s all about the experience.
Thanks for popping in!
