Melbourne SMALL BUSINESS HEADSHOTS / PERSONAL BRANDING Photographer
People really do want to know who they are buying from - and that's you.
It's really easy to hide behind your business, to put your business first and promote, promote, promote.
But if you want to inspire brand and business loyalty, I'm here to tell you that you need to get personal and put your face out there. People really do want to know who they are buying from, nothing builds trust with a business or brand faster than personal stories, insights into your daily life / behind the scenes of your biz.
Having great imagery is especially important if you are active on social media, killer content can make or break you! Some of my best performing images on my Instagram and Facebook channels are of me, that are paired with insights into me and my personality, behind the scenes of my business and personal stories.
Because you here, it probably means you've realised how freaking hard it is to take photos of yourself!! There's only so much you can do with an iPhone in selfie mode, or a camera on a tripod (trust me, been there, tried that) before you need to get a professional involved.
Collaborating with the people who are the brains and boss-ladies (or boss-dudes) of small, local businesses makes me seriously happy.

Frequently Asked Questions
Each personal branding session starts at $550, and is one hour long. Your edited high resolution digital images are included (estimate 40+) and will be delivered to you via an online gallery within 2 weeks from the date of your session.
If you would like to purchase GIFs (moving photos) these are $50 each.
What are these GIFs you are talking about?
One of my BFFs is a social media marketing whiz, and through the grapevine I've heard that video is a HUGE deal on social media!
Buuut talking on camera and sounding natural is HARD WORK - especially on a regular basis, so that's where these GIFs come in. They are like moving photos, so they get the reach of video, without you actually having to say a single thing.
Who is the Personal Branding session perfect for?
These sessions are perfect for small (especially creative) business owners who are ready to step out and be the face of their business, and need an image library full of fun and creative head shots to sprinkle across their website and social media channels.
My favourite clients to work with are fellow creatives and marketing geniuses who want relaxed, natural and FUN imagery!
Who is this not perfect for?
Clients who want lots of flatlays, photographs of buildings/studio spaces, or people who want formal, corporate headshots. I'm happy to work with large teams (10+ people) - but please contact me for a custom quote if this sounds like you.
I'm nervous about being in front of the camera...!
Yeah girl, I totally get it - me too!! Yep, I hereby declare that I get nervous in front of the camera - and I'm a photographer! Should be easy for me, right? NOPE! Totally nerve-wracking! But I believe in practising what I preach, and if I can do it, you can do it too (check out my about page to see photos of me in action).
Here's my promise to you:
- I'll never tell you to just "be yourself" - because it's 100% possible to feel like yourself, and freeze up in front of the camera;
- What I will do, is everything I can to make you feel relaxed & comfortable, because the more fun you are having the more natural your images will be. This means I will:
- laugh with you at the awkwardness of the whole situation;
- pull funny faces;
- crack terrible dad jokes;
- chat with you (I want to know all about you too);
- Most importantly, give you lots of direction about how to stand in a flattering way for YOUR body type, where to put your hands (and what to do with them)
- I'll also show you photos as we go, so I can get your feedback and make sure you are happy with your photos - and hopefully give your confidence a boost when you see how awesome they are!
Where do we meet?
Your office, your home office, your fave cafe - anywhere! If you aren't sure, let me know what you have in mind and I can give you some suggestions.
Travel is included within 20km of my postcode (3030); any distance beyond this will incur a fee of $2 per km. My favourite place to photograph clients is in the inner west of Melbourne (especially Seddon, Footscray and Yarraville).
This lucky photographer has worked with some amazing local businesses! Can I add you to the LWP family?
