Professional Headshot Photos

If you’re looking for a fresh, flattering headshot for a dynamic online presence you can be proud of – a presence that helps get you more ideal clients or land that dream job – then you’re in the right place!

Located in Epsom, Surrey, I create professional headshots in my relaxed home-studio or location of your choice. Feel uncomfortable in front of the camera? Don’t worry. I’ll give you tips on how to prepare for, relax and feel confident during their shoot. Plus the shoot itself is very relaxed and friendly.

This page contains details about The ExperiencePrices, How to Book & FAQs. Take a look around and if you have any questions then don't hesitate to get in touch!

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Paula. She delivered an excellent service from start to finish and some truly outstanding headshots. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!”
Tom Birch
“I can't recommend Paula enough. I'm not a fan of having my photo taken but she made the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable. Paula is definitely your 'go to' photographer and if I have any more requirements in the future, she will be my first choice!”
Marta Redding

The Experience

With a professional headshot, I keep the process straightforward to make it as easy as possible for you. We have a quick chat on the phone to establish your goals for the session and I take care of the rest. I'll give you ideas for the perfect location (for outdoor headshots), what to wear and how to get the most from your session.

I have a relaxed and friendly working style, and the focus really is about making you feel relaxed and getting natural shots of you. I work with you, directing you as needed to find positions that feel natural to you. There is no awkward or forced posing, I simply build on what you feel most comfortable doing. You may prefer to stand, sit or perch on a stool, I just work around you.

A few days after your shoot you'll receive a link to a private, online gallery where you choose your favourite headshots. These are then carefully retouched to a high standard and ready within a week. Need a faster turnaround? Just let me know when you book and I'll do my best to make it happen!

What to Consider

Your headshot should work for your market and expresses your personality and strengths. Think about how you want to come across. You want to look like ‘you’ but in the way you want ‘others’ to see you in your role.

You'll need to consider:

  • What the images are for? E.g. LinkedIn, new website
  • What type of impression you’d like to portray? E.g. friendly, professional, confident
  • What you'll wear and how many different looks you need
  • Whether you'd prefer a studio shoot or an outdoor shoot
  • How many you need and when you need them for.

I'll send you some info to help you prepare for your headshot session and if you have any ideas or images in mind, feel free to share them with me – images are always great to help me visualise what you’re after.

My home studio is located in Epsom, Surrey KT17, outside of the ULEZ zone. Full address details will be supplied when you book.

By Car

The nearest M25 junction is Leatherhead (junction 9). Then it's a 15 - 30 minute drive from there (traffic dependent). It's very easy to find and on-street parking is available just outside.

By Train

The nearest train station is Epsom and it's a 15-20 minute walk from there. 

Yes absolutely! For some of my clients an alternative location works better for them. E.g. a beautiful outdoor location or at their place of work. Please get in touch to discuss ideas and options.

Yes absolutely! I appreciate not everyone can attend a weekday session so I often book sessions in the evenings and at weekends. However, they are not available to book online because I have to fit them around family life.  

If you'd like an evening or weekend session, just complete the form with some details of when you'd like to come and we'll make a plan that works for us both.

You'll receive your gallery approx. 2-5 working days after the shoot. Once you've selected your favourite images, they will be retouched in approx 3 - 5 working days. 

If you need a quicker turnaround, just let me know and I'll do my best to work to your timescale.

If you need your images within 24-hours, I offer a speedy turnaround service for £10 per image.

Studio shoot: Bring a hairbrush, make-up for touch-ups, hairspray for fly-away hairs and clean, ironed, well-fitting garments on hangars. There is a private, changing area with a full length mirror where you hang outfits and get changed.

Outdoor shoot: Bring a mirror, hairbrush and clothing that you can change into easily in a public area. e.g. jacket or scarf that can be added or removed easily.

Retouching means editing an image for small details.

Distractions such as stray hairs and temporary blemishes are removed so that the focus is on your expression. Retouching is subtle, it serves to complement the image, not to change how you look.

You will look like you but on a really good day!

Images are also optimised for brightness, colour and contrast to bring out the best in them.

Heavy retouching e.g. tattoo removal, adding hair, softening deep creases is also available for £45 per hour.

The first thing that most people say when they arrive is "I hate having my photo taken" or "I'm dreading this experience" and I can confidently say that by the time they leave, 99.9% of my clients have changed their view on that. Here are a few helpful tips to help you feel confident and relaxed:

Firstly, try to visualise the photo shoot going really well and imagine how good you’ll feel when you can upload your flattering new headshot as your new profile image.

Secondly, take a look at my blog post How to Prepare for your Professional Headshot in 7 Easy Steps which includes ideas for getting prepared beforehand and combating nerves on the day of / during the shoot.

Thirdly, just so you know, my home-studio environment is super-relaxed and so am I. We'll be chatting, music will be on in the background and I'll take lots of shots (up to 100 in 30 minutes) so there will be plenty of images to choose from.

Fourthly, if you think you may need a bit of time to warm up, choose an extended (60-minute) session so you have plenty of time to get used to the camera and don't feel rushed.

And finally, if there’s anything specific about the photo session or the end results that you feel concerned about, do let me know so we can discuss it beforehand and put your mind at rest.

Having a headshot taken when you're not used to it, does feel a bit strange. But we've all got to do it, and if you prepare well, you'll love the end result, trust me :)

Yes absolutely! 

I'll come to your offices or location of choice and photograph your whole team on the same day. I'll bring my portable studio or we can choose a location with natural light. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements and I'll happily provide a quote.


Yes I do. You can find information including prices on my personal Branding photography page. Click here to view

Yes absolutely! Gift vouchers start from £125 to cover the cost of the Headshot Express.

Please contact me before booking so we can make the gift is 100% right for your recipient. View gift voucher ts & cs
