To say that I didn't fully understand the positive effect that a great headshot can for your brand is an understatement. Laura's quirky headshot session with me produced some photographs that have generated a renewed interest in me and my work -- and has given me a confidence I'd not experienced before.

As somebody who isn't a natural in front of the camera, on the day of the photoshoot, Laura completely put me at ease and helped take some really good shots of me in some interesting surroundings. The results blew me away.

For anybody who is in business and wants to stand-out from the crowd, I'd recommend a great headshot photo. There's only one person I'd recommend for this -- and that's Laura!

As I am taking my business in a new direction I knew it was time to upgrade my headshots. Having worked with Laura before I knew she was the photographer for me. I’ve never been someone who likes to be the centre of attention, so stepping in front of the camera felt a bit daunting to say the least! Yet Laura and her team make the whole experience so effortless and enjoyable to the point where I wanted to do it all over again!

The photographs themselves are fabulous, I feel so confident and proud to be using them. I’d highly recommend Laura to any business owner who not only wants to stand out from the crowd, but who wants the photographs to really capture their personality.

I had the pleasure of hiring Laura to take some new head-shots for me shortly as part of a business re-branding exercise. I was a big big fan of Laura's work and had been aware of her great reputation before this.

I recently had the "quirky headshots" service with Laura, on location at a Christmas show I was working at in Wynyard Hall. Laura's shots were imaginative and unobtrusive as she photographed me at work, while I was demonstrating for customers. Laura has an original style that comes across in all her shots.
Subsequently, she submitted one of her photo's, taken on the day, to the Guardian newspaper which they ran with, thus giving us extra exposure.

Laura is great at helping you and your group feel relaxed and she is brilliant at getting great shots. She is a true professional, who immediately puts you at ease which is important with image photography.

You could settle for simply a 'headshots session' with someone else or take the premium choice of working with Laura. The whole process from the preparation, the attention to detail, the communication are all amazing.

On the day, Laura applied a degree of attention to detail, preparation and sheer creativity that was hugely impressive. The resulting photographs have generated feedback and raising of my business profile that I could only of dreamed of.

If you're sitting on the fence over a decision on going ahead with your headshots my advice to you is 'STOP PROCRASTINATING!'. Get in touch with Laura today.

We wanted some lovely photographs to remember our wedding, we didn't want lots of posed photographs or for our guests to get bored while we being snapped. At our initial meeting with Laura we felt her approach sounded perfect for us and after discussing our wishes, we knew she was on the same wavelength. We felt Laura was great on the day, unobtrusive at times while taking natural shots yet taking charge of the guests at other times so that we got the ones we wanted with our family and friends. We now have a beautiful collection of photographs which tell the story of our day and which we will enjoy looking and sharing with our family and friends. We would highly recommend Laura for your wedding. Thank you Laura. xx More...

Amazing photographer, decided to take out a birth to first birthday shoot with Laura for my new born son. From preparing and the first shoot to the last it was a pleasure, with her attention to detail and easy going personality made the whole experience fantastic. After the first year we decided to take out another two years of photo shoots with Laura to capture Joshua's journey from a baby to toddler, well worth it! Thank you so much Laura it's been a pleasure. More...

Laura is an inspired photographer who instinctively knows how to get the best out of her subjects. This is a great skill, as anyone who has ever had to sit through awful holiday photos will know.

You need to capture the essence of someone in a photo and the ones Laura took for my new marketing campaigns are beautiful! I now actively share my headshots, rather than just having a wonky selfie on Linked In and can't wait for the next opportunity to work with her.

I have also seen the work she has done using a green screen and it's literally awesome. Andrew and Pete atop a skyscraper, taking a selfie.

Firstly, let me tell you I do NOT like having my photo taken. But i was persuaded that my headshot looked as if an alien had taken over my body, so I took the opportunity to meet up with Laura before CMA Live as she came highly recommended. They weren't wrong! She spent a long time understanding my brand and exactly what I wanted. She planned possible routes in case of good or bad weather, as we were both in a strange city. She made me feel completely comfortable, even having my photo taken on the street with actual people watching! It even ended up being fun. I couldn't be happier with the photos and I will definitely be recommending Laura to anyone who will listen. More...

I am absolutely delighted with Laura's service. From the initial email, to the Skype chat though to meeting on the day, Laura made me really comfortable and understood exactly what I wanted from my session. She was fully prepared and had the afternoon planned out perfectly. Laura is very easy to chat to and listens to your requirements. Walking around the streets of Newcastle and stopping to get some shots at interesting doorways or a lovely flower shop was such a great experience and I am over the moon with my photographs. She has captured my personality and what I wanted my brand to say. Would highly recommend Laura! More...

When I first met Laura I knew I had met the photographer who would be doing my new headshots when the time was right. She knows her stuff and her knowledge and awareness around branding is such a great asset to her, even more so appreciated by being a Graphic Designer specialising in this area.

The way she listens, explores and incorporates your brand to really reflect who you are and what your business stands for throws her miles ahead of the game. I opted for her 'Sch-Wham' service which meant I also got access to her team, consisting of a hair and make up artist, a stylist as well as having everything planned down to the tee for me. As most people, I'm not a natural in front of the camera but having everything placed into the experts and having Laura taking the photos in her relaxed, passionate and fun nature I felt so confident and loved every second of the day. I'm so proud of my new photographs and I'm excited to see the impact they have on my business.

I recently engaged Laura to shoot a set of bespoke head shots for use on my website and social media. I had a very clear idea of the look I was after and that involved an international shoot. Laura took all my demanding requirements in her stride and flew out to Spain to complete the shoot.

Laura spent a lot of time prior to the shoot working on my requirements and by the time I met her for the actual shoot she was totally ready and knew exactly what I was after.

Shoot day was amazing. I hate having my photo taken. Laura put me completely at ease and managed to take photos that looked natural.

The after service was fast and streamlined.

The end photos are awesome and more than I could ever have wished for.

If you are looking for new head shots then Laura is the gal for you.

Laura is always fun to work with, creative and always looking for a new angle :-)
She allowed me to relax and unobtrusively took loads of photographs of me at work which is just what I wanted for promotion of my workshops and to update my profiles on social media. Thanks Laura!

I'd admired Laura's work from afar before connecting with her - so when I heard she'd be stateside, for an event I was also attending, I booked her immediately. I'm so glad I did, and am excited to do shoots with her at this same conference every year from now on! I adore her aesthetic, our personalities are a perfect match, and she really knew how to run a fun, creative, productive shoot that perfectly expressed both my brand and my SELF. We got so many great pictures that choosing my final shots was no easy feat, but I'm so unbelievably over the moon for them, and am thrilled to use them to promote my business everywhere! If you're seeking the perfect match of "unique" and "useable" in your photos, look no further. Never boring, always on-point. Thank you, Laura!!! 💋 More...

Q&A

Ensuring your subject is as relaxed as possible.
Having some good training behind you helps as well.

What exactly are you looking to achieve with the photography you need?

I love showing clients new and creative ways of tackling problems, I really love meeting new people.

I hated seeing people make a real hash of things. On the flipside, I also had the pleasure of working for some really inspiring Photographers, who I continue to follow to this day.

I am great at listening to my clients and able to present a series of ways to help them achieve ways to meet their goals with my photographs. In all cases, I look to develop a longer term relationship with clients. This can only be done when you do things well and right on the first job.
