I create emotive portraits that let your personality shine through the lens. Together we will choose locations that resonate with you and make sense to your business. In my experience, most people find headshot photography something they would rather not have to do. However, I like to make each session enjoyable so you can walk away feeling that you had the best experience with results that will connect beautifully to your audience.
Being prepared for your headshot session
I am fascinated as to why people often find being photographed scary. But it’s ok! Being photographed can initially feel a bit awkward – even for me.
I have discovered that there is this interesting phenomena when portraits are taken for entrepreneurial stories, compared to other photo sessions. Mind chatter tends to be noisier when it’s personal to us and addresses public eye. Not so much during a family portrait session.
When you work with me, you are conveying what you do, what you contribute and what you give to the world. This can be resonated and I believe that this is what makes a photo, photogenic.
So I help create a comfortable space in any environment for your to just BE.
Look through the headshot gallery for ideas to see how many possibilities there are.
How long will it take?
I have a set of packages to suit different needs, so this can be as short as a one hour session. The booking of time depends upon your requirements. Just let me know how many people and your ideal location. If you’re an entrepreneur you may need a photo shoot that gives you a variety of looks and locations. This will mean a longer shoot with more photos for your marketing. All your needs can be determined with a free consultation.
I’ve always been impressed by Sophie’s artistic talent. Like many others, I’m not comfortable in front of the camera but when offered the opportunity to update my profile images, I somewhat reluctantly stepped in front of Sophie’s lens. Sophie has the ability to make you relax, not feel too self-conscious and with her professional approach and skilled, photographic eye, created a series of lovely images I’ve used to update both my personal and work profiles.Clare Evans, Time Management and Productivity Expert.
During the shoot, Sophie’s good humour and encouraging feedback put me at ease and I felt surprisingly relaxed. I loved it when she stopped me half way through and asked me to visualise my business doing brilliantly well and me feeling passionate about what I do. This definitely helped keep the energy up and was one of the final shots I chose.Jane Robbie, entrepreneur
