Head shots

HeadshotWe all know how important Head Shots are to make the right first impression, but getting the balance right between a professional and personable photo speaks volumes about you and your brand.

I’d love to work with you to create your perfect head shot.

I strive to make each session relaxing and enjoyable so my clients feel proud to use their new professional Head Shot images for a long time to come. With 10 years’ experience as a professional photographer, I understand for some it may be a daunting experience getting your photo taken, but by getting to know each client before the shoot at our pre-consultation, I can help make sure you leave my studio, or our shoot feeling relaxed and confident in front of the camera.

”Rachel not only made me feel at home and relaxed. But she also managed to make me look as well as feel a million dollars. I was hard pressed to choose one photo for my main publicity shot and have used almost all the others all over my website. I loved my afternoon and will certainly be back for family photos as well as professional ones.” Gillie

”I was really nervous about having my photograph  taken, however,  Rachel made the session  so relaxing  and  enjoyable.  I  usually cringe when I see a photo of myself but I am delighted with the images and  feel  proud to use them for marketing.  Thanks Rachel you are a true  professional.” – Veronica
