The Natural Surroundings

We are lucky to have a beautiful, leafy strip across from our studio. This is a wonderful area to capture outdoor headshots and portraits with a natural setting.

I always encourage morning and afternoon sessions for the most beautiful light for outdoor portraiture.

Studio Background Options:

Inside my studio there are lots of background options, from vibrant pops of colour to sleek neutrals. There are also environmental settings we can play with, including couches, a desk and linen curtains. I consider outfit, hair, and eye colour, and pair colours to create cohesion and style.
