Can I book a studio and/or outdoor photography session?
Yes, our studio offers both studio (indoor) and location (outdoor) photo sessions.
Usually, my branding and corporate headshot sessions are in the studio
and actor & dancer headshot sessions are both on location and inside the studio.
If you would like to book a group corporate headshot session we will set up a mobile studio at your place of work. How long does the individual session last?
Standard one-on-one sessions are usually 45 minutes. We cover a range of looks/outfits, poses, backgrounds and expressions
so that you have a wide variety of options to choose from to build your personal brand.
What happens if I need to reschedule my session?
Session spots are limited and we appreciate as much notice as possible if you decide you need to reschedule.
If you rescehedule or cancel within 48 hours a $100 fee is charged to cover the lost studio time and administration involved.
PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION
How should I prepare for our photo session?
Once you have received your booking confirmation email, a Welcome Pack will be sent to you including tips on outfits,
grooming etc. You will be given tons of guidance during the session also.
Do you offer hair and makeup services?
Yes. This is something that I recommend for most women. Our resident artists are fabulous at what they do and know how to enhance
your natural style and create a professional polished look that works well in studio lighting. Not only will you look great, but you'll feel more confident too.
Refer to Before & After gallery to see the results!
What if I have sudden skin breakouts, coldsores or allergies on the day?
No need to fear! We have top hair&makeup artists on board to even out the skin tones and hide the 'imperfections'.
You can also count on the high end retouching service to complete the polished look and get you back to looking your 'natural best'.

DURING YOUR SESSION
I normally hate getting my photo taken, do you help with posing and getting me to relax?
Absolutely! About 99% of my clients feel nervous about getting their pictures taken and I completely understand.
But rest assured, you'll be given all the professional on-camera guidance
you need to make your experience as easy and relaxing as possible.
My advice is to remember to breathe, try not to over think it and trust that you're in safe hands.
What to expect on the day
My personal approach during the photo session is about having a play, seeing what works - and of course, having some fun while we're at it!
I really do care about you and want you to walk away from the session not only looking great but feeling amazing too.
This is your chance to get time out from the usual bustle of life and take a moment to celebrate what you've achieved, let go and be yourself.
I make it my mission to capture you in a real and authentic way and give you pictures of yourself that you will absolutely love!
Does the session only cover head and shoulder shots or can I also have mid and full length shots taken?
The session can be customised to suit your needs and can include mid (head to waist) and full length shots.
Full length shots require extra time to get right so
please let me know in advance if you are needing these.
AFTER THE SESSION
What happens after our session is over?
Within seven business days after your session, you'll receive an email with a password to
your private online gallery. This gallery will include all the favourite images from the session (only the best ones are shown)
and you will be able to view and order your images from my website and share your password to anyone.
How much retouching do you perform?
Every ordered image will undergo detailed professional retouching to present you at your 'natural best'.
We believe it's important that the retouching isn't obvious and that you still look like you - but on your best day.
Click here to see the retouching "Before and Afters".
The standard retouching treatments includes: teeth whitening, blemish removal, stray hair removal, skin smoothing,
eye bag reduction, red skin reduction, eye colour brightening/sharpening and overall colour enhancing.
If you require anything outside of the standard retouch (e.g glasses glare removal, skin colour changes etc)
a $35 fee applies to each photo.
Can a 'landscape' photo be converted to a 'portrait' and do you crop for LinkedIn and social media?
Absolutely. Simply let me know what you need at the time of ordering, and if the image allows it, I'll happily provide cropping options for you.
There is a $35 cropping fee if you decide you need your photos cropped differently, after 2 weeks from ordering.
Can I order the photos in color and black & white?
You can view and order your photos in both colour and black & white from the website gallery.
We can also provide you with the same photo in colour and black & white for an additional fee of $35.
How are the photos supplied?
You will receive the photos as digital (not print) jpg files that can be easily downloaded through
an online digital transfer service.
What is the turnaround time from ordering the photos to final delivery?
Standard turnaround time is within 7 business days. If you require them urgently, you can discuss this at the time of booking.
A $45 fee is required for rush delivery (within 2 business days).
Do I have permission to use these photos for both my professional and personal use?
Yes of course! The photos are not only great for business websites, social media, speaking events, LinkedIn, coporate brochures etc
but your family will also greatly cherish having beautiful photos of you too!
