The Healing hands and scents of Made by Pure Hands

I recently had the pleasure of working with the lovely Vanessa of Made By Pure Hands. She was interested in having a bunch of photos to show her personality and brand for use on her website, social media and print promotion. We discussed the types of images she wanted, what she wanted to convey and came up with a plan for how we were going to do it.

Vanessa is an Aromatherapist, Massage Therapist and Product Maker in South London, working at Bellenden Therapies and various events and for private organisations around London offering a range of massage and aromatherapy treatments including pregnancy massage and onsite chair massage. She has been a qualified Massage Therapist for 5 years and an Aromatherapist for 7 years but her experience of using essential oils and making products goes back more than 16 years. Vanessa is very passionate about the many benefits and healing powers of essential oils. You can find out more through the insightful blogs on her website spanning more than 4 years or follow her on Instagram and Facebook.


As the face of her business, we wanted to capture Vanessa in her happy place enjoying the company of the man she loves most and doing what she loves best. Book a session with Vanessa and you’ll be immediately drawn to her gentle manner, passion for aromatherapy and massage, infectious laugh and her vast knowledge.


For all the mums-to-be out there, Vanessa and I have teamed up to offer you a fantastic offer. Book a block of 4 pregnancy massage treatments with Made by Pure Hands before 31st October and receive a voucher for £75 off one of Portrayed Photography’s Newborn Photography packages.
