I love taking headshots.  Working closely with one person and getting to know them enough to bring out their personality is a real privilege.  There are few people who are really comfortable having their photo taken so it’s my job to make the experience enjoyable and fun.  I want people to feel relaxed and good about themselves.

A photograph is a powerful thing – it shows the world who you are and what you represent so it is vital that your headshot is kept up to date.

Now that social media has taken such an important role in promoting our professional abilities, having a professional headshot is more important than ever, whether it be for your business, event programme, college application, agency headshot or spotlight page.

A headshot might only take up a small amount of space on screen but it can still have a huge effect on how you are perceived.  A great headshot shows you at your best but it does need to be truthful, striking, natural and, of course, completely professional.  A good headshot gives people an idea of your personality before they meet you. 

I want people to be themselves in front of the camera.  Authenticity and approachability is what people react to.  I love to chat with my clients, to laugh and create a relaxed atmosphere, which is important to get the best possible results on the day.  I want the headshots that we create together to
be natural, and show you as you are.  I want to get to know you and understand what you need your headshot for, so that I can capture the essence of you.

Here are a few photos from a recent headshot session, which were needed for a start up business for use on her new website and LinkedIn.  As you can see we had lots of fun, as well as capturing those all important winning images. 

Keep an eye on my social media pages for some more ‘outtake’ photos from different headshot sessions. 

There are several things you need to bear in mind when booking your headshot session so take a look at the Info page of my website to find out more about what to expect.

Let me know if you would like to make a booking and we can get something in the diary.
