Personal Branding

you are the face of your brand

Styled portrait sessions for the modern-day entrepreneur.

So, What is personal branding. . .

If you own your own business you are in charge of your own marketing – this includes making sure you have content on hand for your social media, website design, and press releases.
Lifestyle “personal brand” photography is simply you taking charge of your own editorial style portrait photoshoot. Going further than the corporate headshot, we can add in props and set the scene to showcase your product or service.
Be ahead of the game and make sure you are represented well and how your business and brand should be.
Talk to me about where your photos will be used and how many looks you need. We can make sure we have images to fit everything from website design to billboards.

Preparing for your Portrait Session

Before heading to the studio or the photoshoot location think about all of the things that make up your personal brand and what you want others to take away from a glance at your profile picture.
We can take a few different shots in different outfits so you’ll have a series to choose from. You may want to tailor your profile picture based on the social media platform you’re using.
The company you work for may also have specific requirements for their website and brand, in particular Real Estate companies.
Remember to have fun! A relaxed, comfortable subject naturally exudes confidence and I am there to guide you throughout the photoshoot so you know what to do.

IT'S easy

Get in Touch

Let’s chat about what you need. I’ll guide you through what to wear, organise makeup if required and we’ll schedule a time that suits.

The Photoshoot

Studio and urban locations to get a range of images. We can use your office or your home – wherever you work from or a local cafe. 


You will receive a private client gallery to choose your images. They are then edited and delivered to you via download.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please give me a call or send me an email if there is anything you’d like to know about your personal branding portrait photoshoot. 

Yes! I have preferred hair and make up artists that I can book on your behalf. They will meet us at the studio at your booked time. Make up is always natural but glamourous. Hair options are straighten or curls. If you need something more specific you can book in with your preferred hair stylist and book the photoshoot for the same day. The Hair & Make Up Package is $150+GST per person and you will need to allow 60-90 minutes.  I pay the team on your behalf so you only have one invoice.

Yes, of course. Clothing advice will be given via email as well as, if easier, over the phone. 

In same cases it is a 50% retainer to book and the remainder due on your photoshoot date. For some businesses it’s easiest to pay one invoice in full so the same date of the photoshoot is fine. Payment in full is due before preview gallery and final images are delivered. Payments are accepted via bank transfer or Stripe/Credit Card. This option is via my online invoice system.  

The first option, especially if you are busy, is to receive an online client gallery link via email within 3 business days of your photoshoot. You can view your unedited gallery and use the heart icon on the images to select your favourites. Once you have confirmed your decision your images are then retouched. This included natural skin retouching and any backdrop work that needs to be done. 

The other option is staying on in the studio, have a cuppa and check your emails while I load and cull your images. I will then go through them with you so you can make your choices on the same day. This is a good option if you need one quickly for a deadline. This will need to be planned in advance so we have put the time aside. This is also a great option if you want my professional advice on what will work best for website and marketing design. 

Once you have confirmed your image selection you will receive the finished retouched images with 7 business days. Images are delivered via download and sized for web and print use. 

Additional images are $75+GST each and includes natural retouching and the print and web sized copies.
You can add on matching high resolution PNG design files with transparent backdrop for $25+GST each.


Client Review

I just can’t rave about Sarah Marshall enough when it comes to social media branding and marketing photos. She has truely found her niche and I trust her vision 100% for ideas when it comes to refreshing my online photos. She knows my style, is interested in my vision and the smaller details that matter so much over social. Her photography helped me step up in business. I recommend her to everyone – thank you Sarah.
