What do you do? Tell us a bit about what you do.
I’ve been a Naturopath for over 20 years, helping my clients live happier lives with natural health care. I’m on a mission to help as many people as I can to learn that there is a way to be healthy and vibrant without having to live like a monk. Everything I do is built around getting real results for my busy, time-poor clients.
Tell me about how you got into your field.
I was always fascinated by my grandmother’s use of herbs from her kitchen to help us when we felt sick. I knew from experience that they worked, and I continued my love of simple herbal remedies into my adult life. When my first-born was diagnosed with asthma, I felt like I should be doing more to help him by learning about diet and natural remedies. So I quit my job and went back to Uni to study Naturopathy. What I learned changed my son’s life, and I couldn’t wait to help others too. So here I am… 23 years later, absolutely loving making a difference in the world.
What is the best piece of career advice you’ve received?
The best career advice I ever received was to do what you are passionate about, and do it well. I put my heart and soul into my work because it means so much to me, and I totally love it.
Why did you choose to have professional profile photos taken and what will you use your portraits for?
I felt it was time for my practice to get a facelift. So I rebranded and updated some of my processes. Part of that meant that I wanted a fresh new look throughout (for me too!). So I decided to get some new headshots done to use on my website, social media and print marketing.
Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?
I started with a google search of professional photographers. When I saw Lizzy’s work, I was so impressed with how natural, yet professional the photos looked. All her subjects seemed to be at ease and look approachable, and I knew I wanted my photos to have the same feel. I thought her fees were very affordable too.
Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?
I had tonnes of fun on my shoot. Lizzy helped me feel relaxed and knew how to get the “stiffness” out of my poses. I really love the results and I’ve already recommended her to my family and friends.
