Have you ever been asked for a photograph of yourself by your company, the media or your marketing person and wondered what on earth you can give them?
You may need professional photographs for your corporate website or brochure, or for your small business website and offline publications.
Even if you don't need photographs for your work if you have an online presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or at any of the many social networking sites you may wish to display yourself in your best light with a professional photo.
Before and after professional portrait photos are also a lovely record of your style makeover journey.
Even if you feel you're not particularly photogenic I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how you can look after I've styled you, Nelly has done your makeup, together we've "warmed you up" for your photographs and Nelly's worked her photographic magic! Take a look below and see for yourself!

Jan was so excited by her new
photos that she deleted the
old ones before I could get a copy.
This is the only one she had left! Another of Jan's

"As a small business coach and consultant I needed photographs I could use on my website and in my marketing materials that were professional and conveyed a sense of who I am.
As someone who doesn't like having their photo taken I am very happy, in fact extremely happy, with the results. I think I look great (if I say so myself), something I never thought I would say about me in a photo."
- Jan Delmas, Small Business Clarity, Sydney
[Jan also had her colours and styles done before the photo session]
Your professional portrait photos should be recognisably you, convey the message you wish to portray and make you look great!
The best way to achieve this is with a combination of a great professional photographer who understands how to get you to pose to get the look you want (as well as understanding the complexities of lighting and background of course), a professional makeup artist who understands what's needed for photographs, and a stylist to select your outfits and attend to your outfit details during the shoot.
To offer this service I have teamed with the lovely Nelly le Comte of nlc photography. The multi-talented Nelly is a professional photographer and photographic makeup artist who can also style your hair for the photo shoot.
Ideally you will already have had my style makeover, but I can also offer the styling services detailed below.
Photographic session -- see location options below
Professional styling -- I'll have a phone meeting with you to discuss your needs and let you know the types of outfits you should bring with you to the photo shoot. During the shoot I'll select your outfits from the options you provide
Photographs -- includes 2 high resolution digital photographs suitable for printing and 2 low resolution digitial photos suitable for the web
This is the recommended option for women and includes all the features of Option 1 plus a professional makeup application by Nelly.
Whether you usually wear makeup or not, having a professional makeup suitable for camera is a good idea (mineral makeup is not good for photographs, for instance, because it is too reflective).
A colour analysis assessment -- you take away a colour swatch and a booklet explaining how to use your swatch and lots of details
A mini-wardrobe audit -- focussed on selecting the items to bring to your photo shoot. This may also identify suggested items for you to get before your photo session
This includes my makeover services. It may also include a referral to a hairdresser and other services as required.
The experience starts with a short "before" photo session and ends with option 1 (for men) or option 2 (for women).
