Beautiful, Organic, Homemade Candles by PFK – Lifestyle Photographer Shropshire

PFK – Organic Homemade Candles – Lifestyle Photographer Shropshire

Last week i had the greatest of pleasure of meeting Paula – an incredibly talented local yoga instructor starting out on a new business venture of natural, homemade ethically sourced ingredient candles. As a Lifestyle Photographer Shropshire, it was great to hear all about the meaning behind the making of the candles and the relationships between the ingredients.

As a few of my last few posts, Paula’s shoot was also part of my small business offer (please feel free to drop me an email:, which have gone down a treat! I have meet some incredible talent over the past few weeks and will blog some more shoots soon!

We did the lifestyle shoot at a friend’s house which was perfect with the look we were trying to achieve – light, fresh, lifestyle and natural. The mutual friend’s house was lovely and bright in areas and also incredibly cosy and warm in others.

We incorporated natural ingredients, slices of lemon, sprigs of rosemary, to associate with the candles ingredients along with some bursts of lavender for a contrast in colours. We purposefully did not go over board with props as we wanted the candles to speak for themselves.

Paula is a yoga teacher,  loves reading and buddhism. We incorporated these interests when  we wanted to change it up and move to the living room to get some cosier photographs. Items such as crystals, beads ,inspiration books and text were a good place to start.

I really can not wait for when we photograph the “spring” season ideas very soon in Paula’s recently refurbished house.Photo of Paula the candle maker smiling outside with a cup of coffee in a floral dressThe smell of the candles were absolutely devine and once the lifestyle shoot was finished I could not believe how relaxed I felt! I think I will be putting in my order when Paula is ready for the launch!
