A Letter from Julianne

One of the best investments I made in myself was hiring Erin to do my headshot and website photography. 

I have used these images over and over again and feel that they speak for me when I’m not able to speak for myself. I’ve used these photographs for my website, PR features, speaking engagements, podcasts, social media… the list is endless! 

Before having a headshot I was proud of, I didn’t put myself out there. I turned down PR opportunities. I didn’t launch my website. Not having a great headshot held me back; that void echoed the little voice inside my head that told me I couldn’t do it. I went to an event a few years ago and the first thing the speaker said to a room full of women was: “Ladies - if there is one piece of advice I can give you, it’s to have a great headshot.” This advice was exactly what I needed to hear and it has been the key to my success and continuous growth as an entrepreneur. My headshot has taken me places I never thought I would go. It has opened doors I never thought I would walk through. 

This event is for all the women who want a great headshot but don’t know who to hire or how to make it happen. Let me help you make that first investment in yourself. I can’t wait to see where it takes you!

Yes. You’ll need to bring your own clothes from home. Julianne will have racks of clothing available at the shoot to try on and wear but it’s important that you come with clothes of your own. Not sure what to bring? Book a one-hour virtual consultation with Julianne ahead of your shoot or look at our mood boards to draw inspiration for outfits that look great on camera. (You’ll have access to these mood boards once your portrait session has been booked.)

Questions You May be Wondering

It’s more than just great style, professional stylists know the secrets behind the clothing that look best on camera, are flattering for your body type and the colours that compliment your skin tone.

Why is a professional stylist so important?

Hair and makeup can appear a lot different in a photograph compared to what you’re used to seeing in the mirror. Professional makeup artists dedicate their careers to mastering the perfect on-camera makeup so their clients don’t look flat, washed out or shiny for their most important moments.

Hiring all of these services on your own can be costly and time consuming. As a celebrity stylist, Julianne has worked with the best photographers and makeup artists in the industry. You can trust that she has selected the best in the business to help produce your perfect headshot.
