Your Headshot & Portrait
There’s no need to be daunted by the idea of a professional photo shoot. My headshot and branding sessions are all about creating a great experience, getting to know you, having a laugh, and getting amazing results.
Professional headshots need to look like the “best you”. So if you have been in front of the camera for years or if this is your first time, my headshot sessions are relaxed and I will take you through each step of the way.

How My Sessions Run:
We discuss your ideas together to ensure you get the best headshots and portraits possible.
You will receive a pre-shoot guide via email to help you prepare for your session too. All the information I provide is to help you get the very best out of your experience.
I also use this time to get to know you and your goals. Provided is a pre-shoot survey, which is designed to evaluate you and your professional, and gives you an opportunity to jot down all your ideas too.
This helps us form a connection on the day, and helps me to create a mood board of images that can inspire us on the day of your session.
I guide and direct you during your session at my studio – based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Together we will look at the images as we go so you can see what you like and don’t like. I’ll tweak the lighting and set up, and we can do various outfit, background and lighting changes.
The more you know what you want or need from the shoot, the more efficient the shoot will be, but I’m always happy to explore lots of ideas and give my thoughts and guidance too.
You will receive an online gallery of the best shots from the session. These will all be numbered so you can see what images you like the best.
It is then your job to choose the final images you want me to edit (trust me, this is the hardest part!).
After you send me your final choices, I’ll edit them and within a few days, you will have high-resolution digital downloads!

To suit you
My headshot and portrait services vary, depending on your needs. I have packages suitable for corporate portraiture and personal branding, as well as packages that suit actors/musicians/models – and anyone who just wants some great images of themselves.
What’s my retouching style?
I aim to keep all my portraits natural, with a ‘you on your best day’ feel about them.
I don’t use cheap filters or blurring effects. My process is completed at a high-detail level and all done manually by hand.
What I do:
- I’ll remove blemishes and other temporary things.
- Slightly brighten up bags under the eyes.
- On request, I can soften wrinkles
(I suggest that we do not completely remove them).
- Reducing hair frizz and flyaways.
- Smooth transitions in the skin (lighten dark spots, etc).
- Brighten the eyes (if needed!).
- Adjust contrast and levels.
- Colour toning and grading.
What I don’t do:
- Completely blur your skin or reduce clarity.
- Change the shape of your body or features – unless requested.
I can always work to your requests. My suggestion is to keep things as recognisable as possible but can follow any specific instructions if you require too.
