I instantly connected with Marlene when she contacted me to book her head shot shoot. Marlene was in the process of upgrading the website for her Dietitian practice in Somerset West, and she understood the value of having quality images to portray the brand in a professional and authentic light. We started with her headshots in my studio, and a little while later, I went to her practice to photograph the rest of her team in their beautiful offices. It’s so lovely to meet a team that’s so in sync, and I guess that comes down to their leadership. Find out more about the amazing work Marlene and her team are doing…

What advice would you give other business women, either starting out or already in business?

What was your expectation for your images?

We wanted clear, professional looking pictures with a corporate theme but not too formal.
