SMALL BUSINESS HEADSHOTS · PERSONAL BRANDING
DO YOU HIDE BEHIND YOUR BUSINESS?
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.

THE IN'S & OUT'S (WHAT'S INVOLVED)
Running a business is HARD - I get it (truly). That's why I've built two packages to suit your budget, and your needs.
PERSONAL BRANDING PORTRAIT SESSION
1 hour session
50+ digital files (high + low resolution) + 2 GIFs
20 minute session
10 digital files (high + low resolution)*
*additional images can be purchased at $20 each
1. 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!
2. Where do we meet?
For personal branding sessions - 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.
For mini-sessions - your location will be limited to inner-west Melbourne (Yarraville, Footscray, Seddon, Kingsville, Newport, Williamstown, Altona).
3. What about travel?
Travel is included within 20km of my postcode (Yarraville, 3013); any distance beyond this will incur a fee of $2 per km.
4. How long will it take to get my images?
I normally turnaround commercial imagery within 2-3 weeks post your session, but if you have a deadline please let me know (additional fees for faster turnaround may apply).
5. What are the GIFs included in the Personal Branding Session?
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.
Here are some examples!
The Personal Branding Package includes 2 GIFs, and additional GIFs can be purchased at $40 each.
This lucky photographer has worked with some amazing local businesses! Can I add you to the LWP family?
