Personal Brand Photography for Melbourne Women in Small Business

My personal branding photo shoots are so much more than just getting some pretty headshots! We work together to get some classic and contemporary lifestyle headshots, behind the scenes of your business as well as the small details that makes your business so unique. The end result is a gallery of consistent, on-brand and professional imagery.


Imagine having a personal stock library to suit all your visual needs.


My lifestyle approach to branding photography ensures your images look professional but still come across as real and relatable which is the first step to creating connection and engagement with your ideal customers, an essential tool for successful small business.

If you’re ready to dich the inconsistent stock photos and haphazard selfies and truly elevate your brand in the most professional way, then let’s chat about your personal branding photoshoot!

The process of my Melbourne Branding Photo Shoots

It’s important to me that you get the most out of your branding shoot and so I guide and prepare you every step of the way.

If it’s your first shoot I’ll focus on getting evergreen images that you can use over again, while if you’re preparing for a specific launch or milestone in your business we’ll focus more on images for the occasion.

Initial Call

Once you have inquired through my short questionnaire, we book a quick 15-minute (obligation-free) call to chat about your needs and see if I’m the right photographer for you.


Book a Date

Following on from the inquiry call, you’ll get an email with my final quote and you’ll lock in your photo shoot date.


Questionnaire and Pre-shoot Call

This is where I deep-dive into your business and brand.

The questionnaire helps me understand what your visual needs are and gets my creative juices flowing to create an initial shot list for you.

Once I have gone through this we hop on a call together to chat about the shoot location, what outfits you’ll wear and I’ll share my ideas that I have put together for the shoot.


Shoot Day

It’s fun, I promise. You’ll probably be nervous – that’s fine (so will I, but more the excited kind of nerves). I’m going to get you to relax and by the end of it, I promise, we’ll feel like old friends!


I use mostly natural light so I’ll be opening all your blinds and turning off the ceiling lights. I also have back-up soft box lighting should the space be a bit dark.


Gallery Delivery

I promise gallery delivery within 4 weeks (but usually aim for 2 weeks). All images are delivered via an online gallery from which you can download them.

Where in Melbourne does the Branding Shoot take place?

Where you have your photoshoot will depend on your needs, the look you're going for and your budget.


During the initial inquiry call we chat about what would be best for your branding photoshoot, according to your specific brand needs.


Most often the photography session is on location at your place of work or at your home in your home office or home studio.

Photography Studio hire can also be arranged and is quoted separately. Here are a couple natural light studios in Melbourne:
