Incredible photos tell people who you are instantly – without saying a single word. We partner with our clients to do the following services.
Starting with an in depth Brand Strategy call, with my expert marketing background I provide and guide you with the best visual ideas for your visual assets. A look generally is an outfit. A change of clothes is basically what we mean by moving on to the next “look”. For each look, I try to get as MUCH variety as possible. My creative brain just naturally is always saying to itself, “ok this is the banner, this is the 404 not found shot, this is the IG post, this is the Hero Shot, this is the Congratulations page, the about page, the ad, the business card, the Facebook group leader shot, the LinkedIn shot” etc.From close-ups, motion-blurred candids, to banners with centre and side focus, verticals, horizontals, detail shots, connecting shots, voyeuristic fly-on-the-wall shots, doing vs being shots, birds-eye-views…We can also play with a look easily and get even more variety – swapping jackets, scarves, glasses, jewellery, is usually still within that same “base look” – sitting, standing, walking, talking, thinking, multi-tasking, being and breathing/looking/feeling…I usually like to get different backgrounds too within a look, whether we are outside and pop around the corner to go from in front of a modern building to sitting with some greenery in the background, or if we are indoors and want to move from the couch to the desk to the floor etc.Very few photographers think in these terms…I have a solid background in marketing and corporate businesses plus the online world, and it’s a muscle that needs to be flexed. Wedding photographers, pet and family photographers – they’ve spent years flexing totally different muscles as far as framing, mood, variety, gesture, directing…
I would say bring 4 or more options for each look that your package includes.
Depending on your package, a certain amount of retouching on your favourite images in included, this is my SIGNATURE editing. ALL the images you receive are edited for colour, contrast, exposure, sharpness etc and ALL of those are ready for using and posting the minute you receive them. They are all high resolution and have no watermarks as well. Now, many people forgo retouching altogether because they don’t see how their images could be any better – that being said, when it comes to in-depth photoshop retouching, here’s a partial list of what I most often do: I found it is way better to have Your Photographer, who knows and understands you and your market intimately, to also do your retouching.I believe in keeping the integrity of Who You Are and not making you unrecognisable. It can be a very fine line, and I see other photographers and retouchers crossing it all the time, which can lead to your potential clients not trusting you, or having a disconnect between you in person and you online.
You can, but 99% of my clients are styled by me. I love it! All packages INCLUDE STYLING SESSION, happy dancing! I recommend you take advantage at least a min. 2 weeks prior to your shoot, trying on outfits. Work with me and no need to stress about your wardrobe on our style consult organised for you.I find styling easy to do since over 10 years I know what looks AMAZING! I totally LOVE it, and I find it is helpful for everyone. I can recommend ways to wear it, shoot it, or if I think you might want to find or buy (or borrow) additional items.However if you need a new wardrobe, I have direct contact with some awesome stylists.

Life happens. Not everything is in our control. Over the years rescheduling on account of the weather reports (that often end up being totally wrong) has been quite few and far between. If we have bad weather, we will do the absolute best that we can with what we are given, and see where that puts us. Only twice in my life have I been unable to complete a shoot due to weather, so it’s extremely rare. To me, all types of weather have both pluses and minuses. Overcast days provide more shoot spot options and more flattering light. Rained-on streets are gorgeous and clear away the crowds like a miracle. Clouds coming and going rapidly create a challenge of ever-changing light but boy do they give the most incredible sunsets.
As far as other situations or emergencies, all I ask for is honest and open communication. I want you to have an awesome shoot/event, but I also want to be respectful of both your time and my own, especially if I am travelling to you, or if you have booked me in a city or for an event where I have a very limited number of shoot or event spots.
We will use our reasonable endeavours to accomodate rescheduling requests, However, if a reschedule is agreed to, there may be an additional fee, especially if a makeup and hair artist has been secured for your shoot/event, who likely turned down other work in order to commit to our day together. Great news – your booking amount paid will not expire for 24 months! And your payment also locks in that rate that you booked at, for up to 12 months!
Before rescheduling, please note that rescheduling of events which are dependant on a minimum number of other participants will only be possible if that minimum number is reached so please check to see if this applies to your event before rescheduling.
While we will do our best to accomodate any request to reschedule, refunds are not offered – refer to our refund policy below.
We have a strict no refund policy*, particularly as payments will often be made to suppliers on bookings being made. However, rescheduling may be possible so please check our rescheduling policy above.
* Without limiting the generality of the above, provided we have not incurred or been committed to pay any costs to a third party, we will provide a no questions asked full refund if you cancel your booking and request a refund in writing within 24 hours of making your initial payment for your shoot or event. In no other circumstances, other than as required by law, will a refund be provided.
Yes! all returning clients love how the results that have attracted them a wider audience and they were paid their worth. I’m able to create even more fresh branding ideas in a fun way, since we have worked together, creating your brand magic is magnetic!

It’s professional courtesy to credit the photographer.
Happy to help out…. Let me know what kinds of photos you need ( headshots, “environmental” corporate portraiture, group shots, interiors, drone stills or video of your space or property even), how you want to use the images, your exact location, a number of people and either approximate or exact date(s), budget, and we will schedule a call wherein I can give you a custom quote.
Together, let’s slice through the noise with images, video and brand strategy that attracts immediate attention and quickly engages to create a powerful platform that builds your trust.
