New year, new start – headshot photo sessions 2019 – ONE SLOT LEFT!

headshot photo shoot in kingston surbiton
Is one of your resolutions for 2019 to finally get round to updating your headshot? Or maybe you have resolved to apply for a new job and need to update your profile pic. If so, I can help.

I will be running half-hour headshot sessions on Sunday 27 January at 10am; 11am; 12 noon; 2pm and 3pm. If you can’t make that day, the special price of £75* will apply until 1 March so please get in touch to arrange another date. (Dates in red are now booked).

This is the perfect opportunity for you to get some up-to-date headshots to use for your LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter profiles.

You might hate having your photo taken. I understand that because I do too. But with 9 years’ experience of taking headshot photos, I can quickly put you at ease so that you relax in front of the camera and we get some great shots. Throughout the session we will review the photos so that we can adjust poses accordingly and you can feel confident in the knowledge that you look good in front of the camera.

How much is a headshot session?

*From 1 March 2019, headshot sessions will cost £90 but until then you can still book at the old price of £75. This includes:

  • A 30-minute photo shoot in my studio in Surbiton  (this is plenty of time for a change of top or jacket on/jacket off so that you have some variety in your photos)
  • A What to Expect guide with tips on what to wear
  • At least 15 images to choose from in a secure online gallery that will be live for 7 days
  • Three digital images in colour and black and white in high res format and cropped to a square for Facebook and LinkedIn
  • Additional digital images can be purchased at a cost of £15 each.

How do I book?

Please email me at jo@sweetheartstudio.co.uk or phone me on 07711 087636. I will then send you a What to Expect guide and an invoice for a shoot deposit to reserve your slot.

Here are some kind words from previous headshot customers:

‘I usually hate having my photograph taken but Jo’s warm and humorous approach set me completely at ease and she took some fantastic headshots.  She gave great advice on how to get the professional but approachable look I was after, and took the time to review the shots as we went along to ensure I was happy.  I’m absolutely delighted with the results!’
CF, small business owner, Surbiton

‘I contacted Jo for a professional headshot session as I needed some photos for an award nomination and my LinkedIn profile at short notice. Jo was extremely professional and put me at ease immediately during the session. She was also very patient with multliple outfit changes and made sure my hair/clothing was well arranged in all shots, sharing feedback on how to get the best photo throughout. After the session, Jo turned the photos around quickly including some subtle edits. I am delighted with the headshots I received and thought Jo’s package was excellent value for money compared to other options I looked into. I would highly recommend Jo.’

The autumn sessions are  lovely because the autumn colours are always so beautiful and they look great in photos.

How much does a mini session cost?

These autumn mini sessions cost £225. They include:

  • A 1-hour photography shoot
  • A What to Expect guide with tips on what to wear and how to prepare for your session
  • At least 20 images to choose from in a secure online gallery that will be live for 7 days
  • 10 images of your choice on USB, beautifully presented in a gift box. Having the digital version of the images means that you can print copies for family and friends etc.

The minimum you would expect to spend on a similar package with a full photography session would be around £275, so these mini sessions offer considerable savings. You will be able to buy additional digital images, frames, canvases, albums and gift prints (I will send you a full price list), but there is no obligation to do so.

Please get in touch to reserve your slot asap as the slots go quickly. I will require a £50 slot reservation fee which will be deducted from your mini session fee. Remember that if you’re a previous Sweetheart Studio customer I will include an 8x6in gift print worth £30 as a free returning customer gift.

Family shoot in Richmond upon Thames

I am shockingly behind with posting photos from all the lovely shoots I’ve done – and I’ve just realised that I didn’t share any photos from this lovely late summer family shoot which took place in the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park. The family were bought a gift voucher when their lovely baby boy was born, but they chose to save it until he was a bit older so that they could have the shoot in the park. It was a lovely relaxed shoot and there was lots of fun, giggles and cuddles involved… Following the shoot, the family ordered some gift prints, digital images and this stunning storyboard frame to show off their favourite images from the day (scroll right down to the bottom of this post to see it).

Autumn mini sessions 2014 – get sorted for Christmas!

Autumn seems to have well and truly got a grip now so why not get super organised and have some up-to-date family photos done in time for Christmas presents.  I run mini sessions just a few times a year and am holding some autumn mini sessions in Richmond on Saturday 1 November at 9.30am; 10.20am; 11.10am and  12 noon and in Teddington on Sunday 2 November at 9.30am; 10.20am; 11.10am and  12 noon (the crossed out times are booked already). These autumn sessions are always popular because the autumn colours are so beautiful and they look great in photos. These sessions are all booked up now, but I will be running some studio sessions in time for Christmas presents (please see below for details).

Happy Mother’s Day

Just wanted to wish all mums a very happy Mother’s Day while there are still a few hours of Mother’s Day left – even though we were all robbed of an hour of lie-in this morning because the clocks went forward;)

So, happy Mother’s Day mums. Hope you’ve had a lovely day. To mark the occasion, here’s an image from one of my latest studio shoots last Friday. It featured a lovely mum, a beautiful bump and a very gorgeous little girl. What better way to show how great it is to be a mum…

There’s just one slot left if you’d like a lovely spring mini session next Saturday morning in Richmond. The slot is at 10.30am. Please click here for further details www.sweetheartstudio.co.uk/outdoor-mini-sessions/
