(Or worse… that selfie you took the last time you had a really good hair day?)
Even if your headshot is just going to sit on your LinkedIn profile or a company website, that’s no excuse to use a photo that makes you cringe.
First impressions are everything, and while it may be cliché, a picture is worth a thousand words. So if you want to stand out, attract the right opportunities, and show the world you mean business, a professional headshot is where to start.
Mention the word “headshot” to just about anyone and you can see them cringe. I get it. Most of us have had a horrible headshot experience at some point, where we were photographed looking awkward, uncomfortable, in a uniform that didn’t suit us and a hairstyle that you swear looked better in real life.
After photographing hundreds of humans, I can tell you that if you feel comfortable and relaxed on the day, your headshots will reflect that. So I’m not going to just start snapping – I’ll coach you through the process, giving you guidance on poses, making you laugh (yes, fun is a requirement at my photoshoots!) and generally ensuring that you feel amazing so you look your best and love the final result. So whether you’re getting ready to hit the job market, want to appear more professional to potential clients, or are embracing a recent promotion and want the headshots to match… I’m here to give you the professional equivalent of a Cinderella moment.
Don't worry, friend. We don't do those kinda headshots here.
"...she made the experience amazingly enjoyable..."
"I asked Christina to do some headshots of me for work, and the first thing I did was tell her my insecurities. I hate getting my picture taken, but she made the experience amazingly enjoyable by making me laugh and relieving the stress. She understood how I wanted to look in my photos, and she took as many shots as possible until I was happy with the selection."

If you’re going through a re-brand, are updating your company’s “about” page or want to present a more cohesive look for your brand through team headshots, I’m here to help.
I offer group headshot packages that allow us photograph your entire team in one session. This means the shots look consistent and on-brand plus you can make the most of your budget since the workflow is streamlined. These shots can be taken onsite (providing the location has suitable space) or in studio.

Reach out to me to request a quote based on how many people will require headshots on the day and let me know whether you’d prefer them taken in your office (this works best if you have the space) or in studio. I’ll follow up via email to confirm the price and provide some date and time options so we can lock in the details.
Once confirmed, I’ll send an invoice as well as tips on how to prepare, outfit suggestions and recommended makeup artists should you need one. On the day I allow for 10 minutes per person and bring my laptop so they can choose their favourite image on the spot and make any retouching requests.

I’m glad you asked! My headshot packages are laser focused and for one simple purpose: to give you that ideal profile photo you can use on your LinkedIn profile, your business cards, an “about us” page on a website and anywhere else that calls for a simple shot of your head and shoulders.
A headshot is all about you and your gorgeous face look straight to the camera, whereas brand photography uses locations, props, candid photography and even sometimes other people to tell more of a story with the photoshoot.
This free guide contains my top five practical tips to help you look natural, confident and like YOU on camera.
