What is personal branding?
The term 'personal branding' came about in 1997 and the idea of personal branding photography has become increasingly popular over the years. It can be a range of images that are unique to your brand - whether you're a photographer, business coach, therapist or a social media influencer! Personal branding images are beneficial to all small businesses in all fields and can set you apart from the rest. I've found that prospective client's want to see more about the person behind the product they are buying into and its a great first impression to have some strong relatable images showing who you are. A headshot is a great start, and you might have already looked at my headshot packages. If you want to take it a little further the packages below focus on just that. We can still take some headshots in any of the branding packages, but we'll also take some shots of you at work, home, outdoors - wherever you see yourself best and include any items/products related to your business. All of the packages below include travel within 20 miles of Hartley Wintney, Hampshire. Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Thank you.

FAQ - personal branding
How much are extra retouches?
Additional retouched images can be purchased for £20 each. Discounts are available for larger orders. I am unable to release un-edited files.
Do you offer a loyalty programme?
Yes! Return clients will receive a free re-touched image on top of their package (worth £20) at each visit.
Client's who book a separate headshot package will receive £50 off their personal branding package. Each of the sessions can be booked for different dates within a year. This is useful if you're thinking of having different hair/make-up! Time slot's must be selected at the same time and deposits will be taken for both sessions to qualify for the discount.
Do you offer a student discount?
Yes, please see the starred price * under each package for the discounted rate. The concession rate applies to students in training with a Valid ID card and professionals within their first year of graduating.
How are you keeping Covid-19 safe?
- If you, someone you have been in contact with or someone in your household is feeling unwell with Covid-19 symptoms or otherwise please let me know so we can reschedule. You will not lose your deposit for a last minute reschedule, just let me know.
- Social distancing must be maintained where possible. Please be considerate to passing members of the public if shooting outside.
- I am happy to wear a face mask during your session if you'd prefer.
- Equipment will be sanitised before and after the session if using the studio. Once I have sanitised the headshot stool for you, I may ask for your help in adjusting the placement as to not cross contaminate between both of us moving it throughout the session. The studio will be deep cleaned between clients.
What is your availability like?
I have slot's open throughout the week including on weekends so just contact me to find out when we can book a session together. Slots are usually booked up to a month or two in advance, especially on weekends so please get in touch to secure a date that is suitable for you and to find out my availability.
I'd like an outdoor session. When is the best time?
I prefer to shoot between Spring-Autumn for outdoor sessions as you have the different colour palettes for the seasons. Winter is a bit bare and can be very cold and uncomfortable. I would also recommend a session during the early morning, late afternoon or during golden hour for the best shots.
Where will we shoot?
I recommend that any headshots are taken at my garden studio, but we can shoot pretty much anywhere that you have in mind! My studio is located in a cute little village called Hartley Wintney which is a 1 hour direct train journey from London Waterloo. The studio is a 20 minute walk from 'Winchfield' train station. Hartley Wintney is a small country village in North Hampshire which borders Berkshire and Surrey so it's very easy to get to by car anywhere south of London.
Travel expenses are included for sessions within 20 miles of Hartley Wintney, Hampshire. Additional mileage is 45p per mile. We can shoot at your home, work place or any outdoor location. Time permitting, we can make a few trips between different locations.
How will payment work?
A non refundable deposit of £50.00 is required at the time of booking to secure the session and the balance will be due on the day. If the deposit is not paid within 7 days of booking the slot will be re-opened for other clients.
If you decide to re-schedule your booking for another date or time, your deposit will be held and transferred to the new date. (Up to 1 weeks notice required or the deposit will be lost and must be paid again. The late cancellation fee is waivered if you are displaying any Covid symptoms or if you test positive for Covid - you must let me know before your session as to not lose your deposit.) In the event of a missed session (no show) with no prior communication, the deposit will be lost and a new deposit will be required to re-schedule to another day.
If I decide to cancel your session for any reason then your deposit will be returned in full.
What does the session fee cover?
The fee covers your physical photo shoot and the number of included digital edited images stated in the package you have chosen. Additional edited images can be purchased for £20 each. Discounts are available for larger orders. I am unable to release un-edited files I'm afraid as they don't reflect a true representation of my work. All images included in your package, or additional purchased images will be edited and provided in high-res without a watermark.
How should I prepare during the time leading up to my shoot?
For the week running up to the shoot make sure you are getting the right amount of sleep and don't drink heavily! Especially don't turn up hungover. You won't be pleased with how you look on camera. It has happened. Stay hydrated all week if possible! Keep eyebrows well groomed and don't try any new face treatments that your skin isn't used to too close to the day. Avoid fake tan and if you are getting a hair cut, have it done the week before rather than the week of the shoot so it has time to settle. Keep your face moisturised running up to the shoot and use a clear lip balm every day and on the day to avoid dry lips. Bring your lip balm with you! :)
What happens after the session?
Within 24 hours of the session and receipt of the balance, I will eliminate any shots of closed eyes and upload all of the good proofs to an online gallery which is password protected. There you will be able to view all of the unedited images and make your selection. Image RAWS will be kept for 3 years and your gallery proofs will stay live for 2 months after your final images have been delivered. This can be uploaded again if you need to purchase any more. You will receive a notification before the RAW files are deleted in case you wish to purchase any remaining images. Your images may also be used on my website or social media pages as advertising to help spread the word. Please let me know if you'd prefer your images to be kept between us. Once you have your images you are free to use them for your own purposes. I am on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter so you are welcome to tag me in your uploads as credit is very much appreciated. Please contact me for guidance and terms if a magazine or newspaper approaches you to use the images.
What is your turnaround time?
It can usually take up to 2 weeks to get your edited images back to you. If you need them urgently there is an optional priority edit fee of £15 per image to speed up turnaround time to 48 hours.
How much editing do you do?
I take a lot of care in the editing process from the perfect crop right to the tiniest blemish on your skin. Spots will be removed along with stray hairs, dry patches of skin, and much more. If there is anything extra you'd like me to do just let me know and I can see if it is possible, (unless of course it's changing the colour of your eyes or something like that - keep it natural haha!)
Can I edit my own images?
As I pride myself on my branding I do not allow any further editing on images once delivered to the client. This includes Instagram filters... ;) I would also recommend to refrain from sharing any unedited headshots in a professional context until you have received your final retouched images.
This all sounds great! How do I book?
Head over to my contact page to send me a message or you can email me directly at email@example.com and I can get back to you with some available dates and time slots. Please let me know which package you are interested in. I usually respond within 3 days but if you think your email has got lost you can also give me a call on 07767 753473.
