For Visionaries,
Rebels and Leaders

I don’t just turn up with my camera, stand you in front of a pretty backdrop and take some cute photos. This isn’t the way we create unique and stand-out imagery. I stay up to date on what’s out there. I see tons of entrepreneurs and brands show up online and I see the kind of imagery they share. And there’s so many trends, so many images that look almost identical. It’s all the same backdrops, outfits, chairs, and laptops. It bores me to death and I bet it doesn’t exactly wow your dream clients, either. And then there’s those that take my breath away and make me linger. They stay in my mind, I can recall them for years to come. They’re not always the most original brands in every way, but they have something to say, and they say it. Whether with raw vulnerability our quirky character, they lean into who they are and weave that into every part of their brand. 

Those are the kind of story-telling, gut-pinching, heart-filling, goosebump-inducing images I strive to create. The ones that your people will be struck by and linger over. You don't want to follow trends just to try and fit in with the crowd. You deserve to show up as who you are and be recognised for the gifts only you have to offer. Your uniqueness is your super-power. Ready to go deeper in your work and create a brand that truly feels like you? Let's bring your personality and big picture vision to life through brand photography that goes far beyond just an image. My process allows for time and space to dig into your personal story, align with the core values of your work, tune into your life's vision so you can build a personal brand that feels like you and resonates with your people.

You are ready to own who you are and what you want

You're invested in Growing your Visibility and impact

You Desire more Aligned-fit Clients Who truly value you

You want your Brand To match the quality of your work

You are ready for a brand that fully aligns with who you are and where you're going. It's time to ditch the rules and lead the way. You're all in on your big picture vision, ready to create an extraordinary brand that feels like you.

You have a passion, dedication and commitment to your mission, because you know your work has the power to impact people and this world in deep and meaningful ways. But you know you can't do that if you keep yourself small, hiding away your true potential and the value you have to offer.

You have grown in your craft, your service and the value you offer through your work. But your brand on the outside doesn't quite match the level you're at on the inside. You know it's time to make sure your brand reflects who you are and the value you bring to the table from the first impressions.

You want community, clients and customers who are drawn to your work, because of your unique energy and approach. You're ready to own your brilliance and shine the light for them to find their way to you.

Featured Clients

She brings her rich knowledge of photography and scene-setting and visual storytelling to the project and I just felt like I was in such safe hands. While shooting she manages to keep a relaxed but focussed atmosphere and it was honestly such a joy to work with her. I would recommend Aiste in a heartbeat. If you want someone who can help you bring a vision to life, that can support you in bringing this about and who communicates clearly and efficiently - then Aiste is your photographer. I'm already dreaming about our next shoot together!"

"I wanted to work with Aiste for a really long time ever since I saw her gorgeous photography and storytelling on Instagram, so when the stars finally aligned I was thrilled to be able to book with her. It's a really scary process communicating your brand vision and putting yourself out there but Aiste made me feel so comfortable. Right from the very beginning her process is so well thought out and supportive. I knew exactly what was happening at each stage, her communication was so clear and helpful. It really felt like a beautiful co-creation. She is an absolute dream to work with, letting you bring what you need and know to the table while creating a container to hold all of it so none of it feels overwhelming.

What We Create Is Deeper than just Aesthetic content for your Marketing.

your Brand Guide & Storyteller

You're here because you're entering a new season in your business, or starting a completely new adventure. And your brand needs visuals that truly represent who you are, the magic you have to offer. As well as the values, mission and vision that guides your work. Any photographer can help you create pretty photography and content to market your work. I'm not here just for that. The online space doesn't need more fluffy content that says and does nothing. What it does need, is people like showing up with something to say. You brand is how you command and hold attention so you can share that message with your community. So people lean in and listen when you show up. You need someone who can weave who you are, what you stand for and how you can impact your people’s lives into powerful visual story-telling. 

The kind that draws people to your brand and build trust with your community as they see you truly embody what you stand for. You have a picture in your mind of what this version of you and your brand looks like. It’s confident, bold and unapologetically you. The way I work is about creating a safe space for you to step into this version of you - the one that is truly, genuinely you, just unafraid to take up space. We all have fears, insecurities and blocks around showing up and being seen for who we truly are. But who you are is the most powerful thing you have to offer. It's your unique kind of magic. And I'm here to help you embrace that. 

Creative Direction

Creative Execution

We begin with deep dive into your story, personality, brand mission, your ideal audience as well as the vision you have for your business. So we can align your brand visuals with the overall strategy and big picture vision of your brand.

Next, I will delve into further brand and industry research, creative exploration. Weaving all this into a detailed photoshoot vision with a mood board, creative concepts, story-telling to guide the photos &/or video and suggestions for locations, styling & other details to bring the vision to life.

unique results require a different approach to brand photoshoots

01 - Brand Story Q&A

02 - Creative Vision

You may notice that you won't find typical brand photoshoot packages here. Whilst unusual, this is for a good reason. For years, I experimented with offering a range of set packages just to find myself continuously tweaking and customising them every time to best suit the unique types of brands and creatives I get the honour of working with. Over the 10+ years of working with personal brands to ideate and execute a vast range of photoshoots, I found that the best results come from giving due time and care to developing the creative vision first, so you have a clear idea of what you want and what is possible for your brand visuals. And then instead of trying to fit the vision into a cookie-cutter photoshoot structure, we get to create a customised photoshoot plan and package based on your unique needs, preferences and vision. This also means you have the time and freedom to explore what you want from your brand photography first, before committing to a package that feels like not enough or too much based on where you're at in this season of your life and business.

THE PROCESS

What your day of the photoshoot looks like will depend entirely on the creative concepts, location, lighting and other details needed to make it all come together. I take a slow, unhurried approach to photoshoot days, creating plenty of space and time for you to ease into the process, have fun and embrace the magic of the creative process together.

This is the stage where I select the best of the best of what we captured and refine and elevate the images with timeless and true-to-light editing style. You'll receive a handful of preview images to start using in your brand within just a few days after the photoshoot. The final edits will be with you within 2-6 weeks after the photoshoot, depending on your package and deliverables included.

where It All Begins

where It comes to life

Let's Co-create a one-of-a-kind vision for your next brand photoshoot

Most brand photoshoots begin with a simple Pinterest mood board, filled with typical brand imagery, and a must-have list of shots. Which is what results in the same-old tired images we see everywhere, that make every brand look the same. If you want imagery that is strategic, considers the big picture goals of your brand, industry positioning and marketing opportunities - that’s where I come in. Intentional creative direction can take your brand from run-of-the-mill brand that blends in to a stand-out and industry-leader and trend-setter, giving you a heck of a lot more value for your investment in your visuals. Once we co-create and finalise a creative direction for your brand visuals, you can either work with me to bring it to life or I will help you find the right creative team to do so anywhere in the world.

Let's bring your brand to life through strategic and intentional visual storytelling

This isn’t a run-of-the-mill brand photoshoot service. Common misconception about brand photography is that the photographer’s style dictates the style of the photos. What is actually true is that the creative direction - the location, outfits, props, lighting dictates the style of the photos. My job is not just to create jaw-dropping content to help you market and grow your business. But to witness and capture who you truly are and your brand’s unique essence. Helping you transform your brand in the process. That is why in the process we take the time and space to build trust and connection, and develop a clear vision first. Then we create a space to adventure, play, experiment and co-create together. Because that's when the true magic happens. Our goal together is not to curate each image and shot to perfection, but to pull together the right elements and create an experience that is so true to who you are, it allows you to just relax and show up naturally.

You are magic. And I'm here to remind you Of that.

But I really know this to be true, because I put myself in your shoes, too. I learnt not just how to capture your intrinsic beauty, but the value of capturing my own, too. On days when I’m struggling with confidence in myself and don't believe I have what it takes to make my dreams happen, I get to look at photographs of myself that give me goosebumps and bring me to tears. That’s the power of seeing your own magic reflected back to you. To see your strength and softness, your beauty and your power visible in ways that you can't always see yourself. To be reminded of just how much you have to offer the world by just being you. And I know it's not just me that feels this way from all those OMG texts and voice notes from clients that trail off with “I better go before I cry!!!" And you know what? I can't wait to get that message from you, too. It's what fuels my passion for this work and reminds me of why this matters so deeply.

I bet you hate being in front of a camera. You don't believe you're confident, beautiful or stylish enough to photograph well. You think your age, shape, body or background means you don't fit into the category of people who get to be captured beautifully. You know that brand photography would be a great investment in your business, but you think you're not enough of a big deal yet to spend money on photos of yourself (gasp!) over something more "practical" for your business. I bet you're thinking right about now: how the hell did she get into my head? Simple, it's because I was and am just like you, too. For years I fully believed I wasn’t photogenic. I know that’s a lie now. Un-photogenic people don’t exist. Good portrait photographers do. I am one. How am I so sure? I’ve been capturing beautiful, raw and enchanting portraits of people (ones who believe they’re un-photogenic) for a couple of decades. I have photographed and moved to happy tears far more people than I can count. And have years worth of hard drives and portfolio full of proof. 

"I just had a look at the sneak peeks and I am going to CRY with how amazing they are! Oh my god, I LOVE the few that I've seen. I look like a model! I've got no words and if I talk any longer then I probably will cry. THANK YOU! I love you, you're the best ever!"

Sara Duigou, Somatic Coach

"WOW. Just wow. You really are magic. These are far beyond what I expected or hoped for. I’m so excited to use these and I’ve already had such incredible feedback from the sneak peek photos you sent through. Thank you so so much."

Hayley Griffith, PR & Marketing Expert

"Honestly, you are a magician. It was definitely one of the best investments I’ve made in my business, and I’d recommend you in a heartbeat."

Anna Dunleavy, Coach & Photographer

"They're so beautiful. I'm obsessed. Absolutely perfect. I already feel so much more affirmed in who I am and what I do just by seeing those images. So thank you!"

Siobhan Watts, Lifestyle Photographer

"Amazing! I can't believe how great they are - in a good way! I though they were going to be good, but they are beyond what I even imagined!"

Kayte Ferris, Writer & Podcaster

"Her magic is truly seeing women. She captures the raw unflinching beauty in film so that the world can see what she sees - beautiful women - whole, complicated, majestic, aged to perfection, and adorned with the scars that prove they survived."

Erika Olson, Singer & Songwriter

Creative direction

Or I will help you find another photographer to deliver the vision.

Inquiry & booking

You can spread the investment into smaller monthly payments, anywhere between 3 to 12 months.

Do you offer payment plans for the investment?

You will receive a handful of complimentary previews to start using in your business within just a few days after the photoshoot. The rest of the gallery will be edited and ready within 4-6 weeks after the photoshoot.

How long will the images take to be edited? 

In addition to your chosen package and add-ons, you may want to budget for is an indoor location (studio, location house or airbnb). Location sets the tone for the images, so is well worth the investment. Other costs you may choose to invest in are a hair & makeup artist, outfits or props.

What additional costs should I budget for?

Most people I work with are nervous at first, and end up loving it in the end. It just takes getting used to. I'm very comfortable and experienced with leading you through this journey, so all you need to do is trust my guidance.

What if I'm not a natural in front of a camera?

Not at all. I will take care of all that and never leave you unsure as to what to do! I don't do stiff poses, but instead direct you in more natural ways to create those candid feeling images, in a way that suits your natural personality.

Do I need to know how to pose?

I will walk your through each stage of the process.. I have your back and will be there to guide you every step of the way. Just trust and follow my guidance and timelines for a stress-free process.

How do I prepare for the photoshoot?

Most of my clients choose not to go for professional hair & make-up, and some do. It's really up to what makes you feel your most comfortable and confident self. I will always suggest doing what feels natural to you and your personality. Whilst a little foundation can help as redness and blemishes get a little highlighted by cameras, I recommend keeping make-up minimal and natural, if that's more your style. Wild, barefoot and free is often best.

Do I need to book professional hair and makeup?

The creative direction will guide what outfits will suit your photoshoot depending on our vision. Unless there's a specific idea that calls for acquiring a new piece or sourcing something vintage, we will make the most of what you already have for a natural reflection of your personal style. I will help you choose the outfits before the photoshoot.

What do I wear and should I purchase new clothes?

I understand this is a significant investment and I believe in giving you the best value for it. Through the last 10 years of professionally creating photography for personal brands, I have honed in on a process that creates strategic & intentional brand imagery that truly stands out in the market. Smaller packages & timelines means rushing & cutting corners in ways that won't lead to the same quality of work you see in my portfolio. And that wouldn't do you or your brand justice.

Do you offer Shorter Timeline or lower budget packages?

Naturally, when working outdoors, there is always a chance of rain. But rain can actually contribute to the atmosphere of the photos. You don't need sunshine for great photos. Overcast days actually offer really flattering light for portraits as it's more even on your skin, which makes it look better. I also build space into the photoshoot days to allow for working around the weather. But if the weather is so unsuitable that it would risk ruining our plan completely or damaging my kit, we will look to work around that. 

What if it rains on the day of the photoshoot?

The copyrights of the images remain with me as the artist and photographer. You will receive a licence that allows you to use the images + videos for most of your personal branding and marketing needs. If anything outside the usual scope is needed, an additional licence fee may apply.

Who owns the copyrights of the images?

My process is very collaborative, so I welcome all your creative input, as I want to make sure the photography truly fits with your overall vision for your brand. Every step in my process is created with this in mind. If you're already working with a designer or brand strategist, I am happy to connect and collaborate with them to make sure we're all in alignment with your vision. But my creative direction process is still fundamental to how I ensure that we have a solid vision & a detailed plan needed to execute the standard of images you're hiring me for.

Can I book you to just take the images? if Someone Else does The creative direction?

"It's such a gift that you are able to do what I do for other people. I am so happy I found you, because when we give out to others, we're don't always see it for ourselves. I wanted to reflect back to you how amazing you are. Even just before I got my photos back, the questions you asked in the questionnaires, got me to reflect so much on my life, who I am and my essence and that's so inspiring. I am so grateful for it. I am just blown away! You are amazing. And you make such a massive difference in people's lives!"
