One of the things that REALLY kills me, is when I know someone in person, and when I see their photos on their website or social media for their business or job… and I don’t recognise them… Their photos don’t show their sparkle, or their beaming personalities – or worse – makes them seem like a completely different person!
This is what happened with my business bestie (and naturopath who has me on this lovely detox right now!), Vesna.
I know she won’t mind me saying this. We have an awesomely honest relationship with the exchange of LOTS of life and business advice… and occasionally that requires a gentle conversation…
In this instance…
Chick. You need to change your photos. They make you look uptight and corporatey and scientific… and you are this free-spirited, spiritual, soft, thoughtful, intuitive, glamorous woman… You photos don’t show me the YOU I see. I can bet you are attracting the wrong type of clients because the ones who will love you aren’t seeing the best parts of you!
Nice and gentle, right! haha
The thing is, her website photos were lovely, and professional and I know she paid a bit of money to have them done a few years ago. They just didn’t show her sparkling personality, which is one of the reasons I adore her and trust her always on-point advice (and what more could you want in a someone caring for your health, right?)
Ves took to the task like a woman on a mission. Clothes, shoes and accessories bought, borrowed & revamped; hair and makeup professionally done; investment in a 5 star hotel to get the shots we wanted; champagne and props organised.
She was basically the ideal client. Because she knew how important it was that her professional image matched her real life persona.
On that note, I will leave you with these ABSOLUTELY STUNNING headshot, portraits and branding images.
We got up the next morning and took some extras at Tamarama Beach opposite my house just for fun.
Love these images? Please do share and leave a comment to tell Vesna how vibrant she looks!
Vesna said about her shoot,
You captured me and my personality perfectly! You helped me relax and enjoy the experience, and it’s the first time I’ve loved photos of myself. It’s been a great way to refresh my website and brand, thank you!
Want Images Like This But Don’t Want To Spend Thousands?
This showed me how important it is to be a photographer that people feel comfortable in front of… It also made me realise that not everyone can afford to hire a 5 star Hotel or to pay for a full photoshoot (a shoot like this usually costs $2490 + GST).
So, just like my family mini session days, I have created a Headshot Minis Event – 23rd and 24th March 2017 in Sydney – AND I have hired the rooms at the Intercontinental for you!
There are two options you can choose – a 20 minute “Quickie” or a one hour “Premium” package. The Quickie is priced below my standard minimum spend, so it won’t be this price again! There are a limited number of spots and it is first in, best dressed for times – if they are anything like my Family Mini Sessions, they sell out within days…. Come and check out all the details here.
The Quickie: 1-2 outfit changes, against a black / white backdrop with 6 Digital Images (perfect for you if you want a few shots for Linkedin / social / website banner etc) – book your Quickie here ;)
The Premium (1 hour): up to 5 outfit changes, with a mix of backdrops with 25 Digital Images (perfect for you if you want shots like Vesna’s with some variety but without the pricetag) – book your Premium Headshot here ;)
Can’t make 23rd / 24th March in Sydney? I’m coming to Melbourne & Sydney too!
Melbourne – 15th & 16th Match – book here.
Goulburn – 29th March – book here.
Or, there are two other options for you:
- Choose a date in March and pay only $1890 including GST for a 2 hour beautiful shoot of your own at a location of your choice (yes, that’s right, I will travel to you!).
- Get 5 or more friends / colleagues / team together to book a Headshot Quickie or Premium package – and I will travel to you, wherever you are in Australia!
The only catch is: I have 5 dates only I can travel and all the prices go back to full price on 31st March 2017.
