Claire runs a fabulous online greetings card shop called The Curious Pancake, based in Nottingham. I’ve been following her for ages on Instagram so I was really chuffed when she contacted me wanting to book a personal branding shoot.

The Curious Pancake isn’t just a card shop though – as well as an enormous range of cards, there are coasters, prints, badges and pins, and quite a few sets of sweary pencils! 😮
And if you’ve left a birthday card to the last minute (like I usually do), Claire will hand write a card for you and send it straight to the intended recipient.

It was the first time I’d met Claire and I found her to be a really bloody lovely person! She offered me tea as soon as I was through the door and we sat and had a chat about the sort of photos she wanted before we got started. I have to mention Dexter at this point, Claire’s amazing Maine Coon cat. He made his presence known pretty much straight away, unlike the other two cats who kept a low profile. He is utterly gorgeous so I had to include him in some of the shots.

So, here are some of my favourites from the shoot. And if you’re looking for a card or gift that’s a bit on the quirky side, do have a look at The Curious Pancake.

If you’d like to book your own personal branding shoot, drop me a line at hello@sarahazeldine.co.uk or use the contact form in the top menu.
