I am thrilled to be kicking off my new blog series, Client Catch Up, tonight with the wonderful and very talented Ania Drouet. One of the best parts of my job is getting to know my client's businesses, and more specifically that moment when I see all the potential, ready to be capitalised on! Ania specialises in 'places, faces and spaces' - property & interiors, and brand and headshot photography for business owners. I love her style and can't wait to see more wonderful work from her!

Obviously I know all about you and your awesome business - but please tell the readers a little more about your business and what makes you unique?
Above all, my biggest thing that sets me apart is customer service. Having owned multiple small businesses in the past and having 13 years experience in the primary healthcare sector, my key strength is being able to relate to and communicate with people of all ages and demographics, I mean lets face it, people HATE going to the dentist right?
I pride myself on offering a professional service, that is streamlined for the time poor small business owner and fun for the camera shy individual. Most people hate having their photo taken and think they look “bad” in any photos they ever see of themselves. My laid back shoot approach, leaves my clients relaxed and not feeling “fake” in front of the camera, instead capturing their real personality and traits (& lots of candid moments) to reflect their brand/business.
What’s been going on since we caught up?
Since I've had coaching with Lanna, I have been doing a lot more 'small business branding’ packages. I have had the pleasure of meeting amazing new (and well established) small business owners, who are after an edge to their website and social media presence with personalised branding images that speak their BRAND.
My other passion is property & interiors photography and so I am constantly on the lookout for creatives in this industry with whom I can work with on a regular basis to showcase their talents - architects, boutique builders, interior designs, homewares retailers, interiors stylists, the list goes on.
What was your favourite part about our coaching sessions?
I loved the flexibility with session times, being able to do it after-hours, was a huge convenience and advantage for me, rather than trying to fit it into daytime hours. I also liked the fact there was homework/exercises to do following the first session and the was this was relayed immediately after the first session.
What are you focusing on for the rest of the year?
Apart from the above, I’m also excited about another side project/business that I have in the pipeline. I was very fortunate to team up with a local Perth web design and content business (after meeting one of the co-owners though the PGB’s group) to offer a personalised, complete digital web design service for healthcare professionals - a niche that was missing locally in Perth until NOW! Watch this space for more soon!
Any other news, events or offers you’d like to share?
I'd like to offer a $100 discount on my 'small business branding photography package' (normally $500) for all bookings until the end of July 2017.
