The Power of a Professional Portrait: Why It Matters for Your Business

In today’s digital age, first impressions often happen online. This is why having a professional portrait for your business is more important than ever. It’s not just about vanity (although a great headshot can definitely boost your confidence); it’s about projecting the right image and making a positive impact on your target audience.

Here’s why investing in a professional portrait is a smart move for your business:

  • Make a Lasting First Impression: You only get one shot at a first impression, and in the online world, that impression is often based on a photo. A professional portrait shows that you’re serious about your business and that you pay attention to detail.
  • Put a Face to the Name: A professional portrait helps you connect with potential clients and customers on a personal level. People are more likely to do business with someone they feel they know and trust.
  • Project Professionalism: A high-quality portrait conveys confidence, competence, and credibility. It shows that you’re a polished professional who takes pride in your work.
  • Versatility is Key: A professional portrait can be used in a variety of places, from your website and social media profiles to your business cards and marketing materials.
  • Tell Your Brand Story: Professional portraits can go beyond just headshots. You can use them to showcase your company culture, your team, and the work environment.

My Haemorrhage Stroke

Its time to talk…

I want everyone to know that I have made a good recovery, with the love and support of therapists, family and friends. I am back at work part time, I am so grateful I am still making progress and feel finding my way. I have very been left with mild Aphasia, but I am here…meet Lindsay V.2

A hemorrhagic stroke, also known as a brain hemorrhage, is a type of stroke that occurs when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures, causing bleeding into the brain tissue. This bleeding can put pressure on the brain, causing damage to brain cells. Hemorrhagic strokes are less common than ischemic strokes, which are caused by a blockage in a blood vessel in the brain. However, hemorrhagic strokes are more likely to be fatal, and they can cause more severe long-term disabilities than ischemic strokes.

On 25th April 2023 was working at my studio as usual because my parents live close by I went to see them after work. We shared a cup tea and a catch up sitting round the dining table if was probably around 6pm when I world turned up side down…

“I am have trouble with my wordssss”

“My words”

“I can’t form”

“I’m can’t”

“Am I having a stroke?”

“I am having a stroke”

“I havin……g a stroke”

“I a ha….vi… a strok”

“I a hav a stro”

“I a ha a st”


“ohhhh no”

Below you will see images of my brain ( top down and sideway on), the white blob is the bleed.

Symptoms of a hemorrhagic stroke can vary depending on the location and severity of the bleeding. However, some common symptoms include:

  • Sudden, severe headache
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of the body
  • Loss of consciousness

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Early diagnosis and treatment can help to reduce the risk of death and disability.
