“I couldn’t recommend Louise more for a commercial photoshoot – it was one of the most useful (and enjoyable) experiences that I’ve had as a small business owner. She asked the perfect questions to understand what messages I wanted to get across for my business – the preparation was thorough and thoughtful, but also concise. She made us feel so at ease whilst doing the shoot itself, and the photos are absolutely incredible and couldn’t have captured the ethos of my business better. I cannot wait to use these photos on my website and across my social media platforms – it has been absolutely invaluable to promoting my business.”

Photo packs for social media
A photo pack shoot is designed to give you enough photos for a week – or a month – of social media posts.
If you schedule in a few sessions each year, I can keep you fully stocked with photos for your online marketing.
I tailor every session around each business, taking time to find out what makes your services unique, and what will appeal to your ideal customer.
Depending on what’s most useful to you, we can include a selection of headshots & portraits, photos of your work environment, your research process and inspirations, your tools of the trade, your products, your clients and flat lays.
This all makes for a lively Instagram feed, and varied content for your stories.
Best of all, I promise that you’ll be well prepared before your session, and that you and your team will enjoy the process.
The result will be a set of photos that really showcases your business, and will resonate with your ideal clients.
Preparing for your business shoot
We’ll spend time before your business photoshoot identifying the shots that will serve you well, and exploring what it is that makes you and your business unique. Knowing this means I can really take photos that will help your customers to understand your business from just a quick glance at your marketing materials.
Before booking anything, I offer a free 15-minute consultation so we can discuss your needs and requirements, and see if I’ll be a good fit for your brand.
Once you’ve made your booking, I’ll send you some questions to get the ball rolling with finding out more about your business. Then, we’ll have a pre-session phone consultation to flesh out in more detail and to develop a loose shot list for your session.
You’ll receive a prep guide including tips and pointers on what to wear, as well as make-up tips (if you wear it).
What’s needed for a commercial shoot?
Good news, I can work with very little space!
You just need to set the time aside for your photoshoot, and I can help with sourcing or recommending props for your photos.
Locations for your business shoot
We can take the photos in your home or workplace.
If you’re worried they’re not the look you’d like captured, we can discuss possible alternatives – for example:
- Studio in Brixton, Angel or North Kensington (from £140 for a half-day)
- Styled Home Studios
- House in Balham (£150 for a half-day), owned by an interior designer
What can commercial photos can be used for?
We’ll discuss where you use images currently in your marketing, and see which areas could do with a visual refresh. Typical areas include: website, social media, LinkedIn profile photos and banner images, newsletters, poster and flyers.
We’ll also think about areas you may not have considered using photos. If you send newsletters, for example, I can create some banners to insert in your layouts to give you that creative edge over your competitors. If you send press releases, use your branding photos in those!

Ongoing support for your business photos
My goal is to provide long-term support for your business, with ongoing opportunities to update your photos.
Once you’ve had your business session, you can also book update sessions later on – these are just £300 for 1.5 hours, including 30 digitals (another month’s worth of photos!).
Let’s keep your images fresh and en pointe!
