Say 'Hello!' to new you. The photo session that has been tailored to portray best of you!
For a headshot session, I offer a session that is designed to get the widest range of shots for you to use for your personal brand. I shoot all my headshots from above the chest and concentrate on coaching you to produce a number of different facial expressions that capture your unique personality. I highly recommend multiple changes and to overpack if possible. Having a wider range of clothing options allows for more variation within your session.
For a portrait session, I not only like to shoot a variety of looks but also vary the lighting and backgrounds as well. These sessions result in a wide gamut of images from headshots to full body and everything between.
About the session
The session can be photographed in a studio or at your workplace. My portable studio equipment let me easily set up in almost any environment.
Prior to booking the session, you (the client) will decide on what your Personal Branding session will consist of; Headshots only, Portraits only or both?
I will be capturing and discussing the images as we go. Inspecting the shots in this way help me to determine their viability for your use. In doing so, I will be able to adjust the focus of the session to account for anything I feel you could additionally benefit from along the way.
Purchasing the images
After the session you will receive a link to a private password-protected gallery where you can review each shot from the entire shoot individually. You will have an option to bookmark your favourite images and see them all on one page. Once you are happy with your choice you will let me know via email/text that your final selection has been made. From that point, I will start retouching images according to your brief/purchased retouching plan.

Feel free to bring a range of different options for clothing. The #1 rule for me is that you have to love it! If you don’t feel comfortable in it, you most likely won’t shoot well while wearing it. I suggest you bring a range of different cuts, colours, and necklines. For my corporate clients, I like the men to have a variety of jacket/shirt/tie assortment and for the women some options of blouse/dress/jacket assortment. Keeping jewellery to a minimum is key, studs or small earrings work and simple necklaces, anything hanging or chunky will usually draw too much attention to itself. If you wear glasses and have multiple pairs, then we'd appreciate you bringing them along in order to ascertain their glare factor. If you have any doubt about whether something will work or not just bring it. Layers are fantastic for a casual look and no need to be seasonal; everything from t-shirts, tank tops to sweaters and light jackets can work. Have some fun with this, if you feel your wardrobe is missing something then go shopping and keep the tags on it in case you’d like to return the items after the shoot.
Hair and makeup
When you arrange a makeup with your favourite makeup artist/saloon, please make sure they apply a very natural, clean and simple look that would go well with your outfits.
I ask that everyone come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself. I would like your hair in your pictures to be as close as possible to the way you look on a fantastic hair day and can't have you showing for a photo session as if you just rolled out of bed.
Light grooming for skin and hair allowed.
If you would like to be photographed with facial hair I would be happy for you to come in with whatever level of growth, just make sure it looks tidy and clean.
Scheduling and payments
To avoid any disappointment, make sure you contact me at least 14 days prior to your dream photo session date. That would give us both enough time for arrangements that occur on each side. Any short notice booking is most likely to be unavailable. It does not hurt anyone to ask, however do not have your hopes up.
A non-refundable sitting fee is required to book a spot in my calendar. The fee is due at the time of booking a shoot date and time. The remaining balance is due 5 days before the photo shoot date.
I accept PayPal payments (which allows you to pay with your favourite card, or split payments in 3 if eligible) or bank transfer. Please request details using the form below.
