Preparing for your photoshoot


It’s important that your look matches the image you’re trying to convey.  What you wear on a daily basis to work is a great place to start, also think about your brand and target market. Solid colours are always a good choice, as are tops with strong collars and necklines. Even if you’ll only be shot from the shoulders up, it’s important you’re pulled together from head to toe—you may want a shot or two that are pulled back a bit. Aim for clothes that complement your skin and eye tones and, overall, steer clear of very bold patterns. Make sure clothing is clean, ironed and ready to go on coat hangers.

Logos and Brand labels are only acceptable if it is for your business marketing images.


Please bring a bottle of water, your own comb or hairbrush, your own make-up and hair product if you have not booked with a make-up artist. Bring your clothing on coat hangers ready to go. We can look through your outfit options together.


This is additional to the package. Please chat to me about your photoshoot as some clients arrive ready and some have hair & make-up on site in the studio.

I was absolutely thrilled with the behind the scenes shots that Sarah did for me. Sarah put me at ease straight away and understood exactly what I wanted! I I couldn't have been happier with the images that she did. I now have a range of stock photos that I can use and in fact when a news media outlet needed a photo I had one ready to pass on to them.

Sarah Marshall photographed my personal branding for me! She made the whole process so easy going and relaxed, plus the best bit, I absolutely loved the photos!! She did the most amazing job and I would highly recommend her services to anyone!!

Hazel Robinson – Coastal Accounting

Sarah recently photographed my biz headshots to update my marketing and social media profiles. Straight away when the paper picked up a story, I had an image available that was perfect and they really appreciated the ease of the job. I have had so many comments about the 'real you' that she captures and I have noticed my profile lift just by updating the profile pics - thanks Sarah! Every business should think about getting these done.

Thanks for the amazing head shots! You fully understood exactly what I was after and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!!
