Perfecting Beauty and Wellness Product Photography: Top 5 Tips for Stunning Visuals

Photographing a beauty and wellness brand is not just about capturing products; it's about conveying a lifestyle, a feeling of rejuvenation, and the essence of natural beauty. Through our experience working with our fantastic clients at Plantmade, we've gathered valuable insights into how to create captivating imagery that resonates with the brand's ethos. Here are our top five tips for photographing a beauty and wellness brand:

  1. Create a Natural Feel:

Constructing the feeling of nature is your best friend when photographing beauty and wellness products. We recommend recreating the most natural-looking lighting achievable to avoid the images looking stale, sterile and overproduced. This also enhances the natural colours and textures, giving your images a soft, ethereal quality that aligns perfectly with the brand's natural ethos.

  1. Focus on Minimalism:

Incorporate clean, editorial compositions to highlight the purity and simplicity of the brand’s products. Avoid cluttered backgrounds or distractions that may take away from the main subject. Opt for simple, neutral backgrounds that allow the products to take centre stage and evoke a sense of tranquillity and sophistication.

  1. Showcase Texture and Detail:

Beauty and wellness products often boast more unique and organic textures, with intricate details that deserve to be showcased. Get up close and personal with the products to capture their textures, whether it's the velvety smoothness of a moisturizer or the delicate patterns of a botanical extract.

  1. Tell a Story:

Go beyond the product itself and tell a compelling story that resonates with the brand’s audience. Consider incorporating lifestyle elements into your photography to evoke emotions and connect with viewers on a deeper level. This could be by including visual cues of the products’ ingredients - further emphasising the feeling of nature as a cornerstone of the brand. 


For Plantmade, we often incorporate floral, herbal and botanical elements to correspond with what’s in the brand’s products. It’s important that these elements themselves are organic-looking, rather than polished and perfect, to truly align with the organic-feel of Plantmade, demonstrating the products are all natural and 100% real and authentic.

  1. Stay True to the Brand's Identity:

Above all, ensure that your photography aligns with the beauty and wellness brand’s identity and values. Whether it's through the use of earthy tones, natural elements, or inclusive imagery, your photos should reflect the brand's commitment to sustainability, authenticity, and holistic wellness. Collaborate closely with the brand to understand their vision and objectives, and tailor your photography to convey its unique essence.


Photographing a beauty and wellness brand like Plantmade requires a nuanced approach that goes beyond simply capturing products. By embracing natural-feeling light, focusing on minimalism, showcasing texture and detail, telling a compelling story, and staying true to the brand's identity, you can create imagery that not only showcases the products but also resonates with the audience on a deeper level. With these tips in mind, you'll be well-equipped to capture the essence of Plantmade and bring its natural beauty and wellness products to life through photography.
