headshots & branding portraits

branding portraits

You’re a female entrepreneur and you need headshots. You want to make a real connection with your audience and build a relationship, and you understand you need to share the real you in order to do that. But traditional corporate style headshots give away nothing of your personality and leave you feeling cold. You’re more creative than that, and you want it to show in your photos. My style is not at all corporate – it’s fun, relaxed, organic, creative and authentic.

“Pam was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was great at communicating with me through the whole process and really put me at ease. I always felt like I was chatting with an old friend when we spoke over the phone before my shoot and on the day she made me feel really comfortable. I was so happy with my photos – they really managed to capture the feel I was after. Pam really got my vision, which was so important to me. Pam is not only a great photographer, but a super lovely person. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a personal business photographer that will really capture YOU.”  ~ Kate

 

feel confident about your images

You want to love your images so much you’re busting to share them. You want your audience to see your personality in them, to feel they know you, and decide they need to work with you. You want to feel happy, energised and excited about your business and your brand all over again. You also want a series of images for later, for different purposes. Maybe you need a shot with negative space for press printing or an online ad, or maybe you want a library of images to draw on for future blog posts.

 

realise your vision

I’m committed to bringing your vision to life and capturing your authentic self, and I make it my business to get to know you and make a connection with you before your session. We’ll chat about you, your life, your kids, your furbabies your favourite music, your business, your website…anywhere the conversation takes us…until I have a sense of you and your hopes for your images. We’ll also talk about a location and I’ll encourage you to give some thought to a spot that speaks volumes about you and fits with your branding.

frequently asked questions

Q. I’m so busy, how long will my session take?

A. Branding portrait sessions take around two hours and my headshot sessions take around 10 to 15 minutes. Your images are as integral to your brand as your logo, and what’s more, they will be with you for a long time, OUT there on the interwebbiez, on ALL your shiz. You WANT them to be perfect, and perfection takes time.

Q. I hate having my photo taken and I’m worried I won’t be able to relax enough for you to take natural images of me.

A. I don’t have a formula and I have no idea how I do it, but my subjects all tell me their sessions were laid back and fun, and I helped them relax into it. I’m down to earth nature with a good sense of humour and I suspect that plays a big part, so sessions feel more like hanging out with a friend and taking some photos.

Q. Do sessions take place in a studio or on location?

A. No studios, no harsh lights. All my sessions take place at a location of your choice. I might use off camera flash if I think it’s desperately needed in conjunction with the ambient natural light, but my preference is always beautiful, natural light in real surroundings.

Q. I can’t decide on a location to have my session

A. I’ll help you with that when we chat. We’ll talk about you and your branding and together we’ll come up with a location that speaks about you whilst still being cohesive with the overall feel of your brand.

Q. How many locations can we use?

You’re not limited to one location. We can take some shots in your workspace, whether that’s a traditional office, your living room, your deck, or your fave local coffee joint. Then we can head somewhere outdoors for some more variety.

Q. Should I get my hair and makeup professionally done for the session?

A. I strongly suggest yes… as I said previously, your images will be with you a long time, for all to see, you want to look your absolute best so that you love them.

Q. I want to be able to use my photos in marketing material and add text or graphics, will I be able to do that?

A. Definitely! Before your session we’ll workshop alternative uses for your photos then I’ll make sure I get those shots on the day.

Q. Will my photos be available in black & white?

A. The gallery will contain both a colour and B&W edit of each image for you to decide.

Q. Will my photos be suitable for printing as well as web use?

A. Yes, your images will be provided in both print and web resolutions.

Q. How long will it take to get my images?

A. After your session allow up to two weeks for your finished gallery.

Q. What is the difference between a creative branding portrait and a profile headshot sitting?

A. A creative branding headshot session is for people who want more creative headshots, that reveal their personality, to use across their website, social medial platforms, visual marketing pieces, and sales pages. They are a longer session (two hours) and produce a large gallery of images to choose from, that can be used for a variety of purposes other than just a bio shot.

A profile headshot sitting is a shorter session (15 mins) for people who just need a simple bio shot.
