Helen Bartlett / Family Portraiture

North London Headshot Photographer

03Apr

Pamela needed a really lovely natural headshot photograph for her new website and contacted me to arrange a session at my North London studio. Two days later and we had a fantastic day for our studio session, beautiful natural light in my studio and also the flexibility to take some pictures in my garden, which added extra variety to Pamela’s portfolio.

Studio sessions are fantastic for headshots as we can control the light to ensure a really beautiful flattering portrait. At this time of year being inside also means a spring breeze does not destroy that a fantastic blow-dry. To get the best out of our session we worked indoors first with a selection of outfits and then moved outside to finish the session, as it turned out the slight breeze worked perfectly, emulating the expensive wind machines used in some high end fashion shoots – in the words of Hannibal Smith from the A-Team ‘I love it when a plan comes together!’

It was fascinating to talk to Pamela about her new business venture and all the training she has had to become a specialist in her field – I learnt so much about aromatherapy and essential oils in the hour we spent together – it was lovely to chat to someone so passionate about their subject, I’m sure Pamela’s new business will be a roaring success.

If you are setting up a new business and need a portrait that will reflect your personality then do get in touch and we can schedule your session. Headshots are available Monday to Friday during daylight hours and start at £195, I’d love to hear from you.
