Personal Branding Photography

(for colourful, magical weirdos <3)

Brand photography is so much more than just headshots.

Vibrant shots of you and your brilliant business, edited to suit your brand & style, a deep dive into your brand messaging and how your photos can best represent you, and a custom stock photo library which will keep your marketing going for months… it’s the perfect time saver and faff reducer!

The best way to tell your story is to show it

– and gorgeous photos of you in action do just that.

Coupled with portraits which show who you really are, you suddenly have a whole new library of images you’re proud of to promote yourself and your business!

Which helps you increase your visibility and confidence, attract your ideal clients, and do more of the work you love in your business.

Because this isn’t any old business, is it? It’s the work you can’t NOT do.

Personal branding photography puts you at the heart of your business – showing your processes, products and people in their very best light.

What is personal branding photography?

It’s the way I approach taking the photos that show you off at your very best, doing your creative thing.

The right photos can transform your marketing and your flow of ideal clients – making yourself visually a very obvious choice to the right people is gamechanging.

We’ll plan your shoot in detail, then spend time together talking business and life, in the surroundings where you’re happiest. You do your usual thing, I’ll follow you with my camera (much less scary than it sounds, I promise) and magic happens.


The result? Spellbinding, stop-in-your-tracks photos of you and your beloved business you’ll actually want to share, where your real self shines through.

Where? Personal branding shoots are location based, at your studio / workplace / home / favourite woodland / wherever you’re happiest.

If you prefer, you’re very welcome in Studio 19. This works well for dancers and pop up shops among others!

When? Usually weekdays, but completely bespoke to you & your business – so weekends and evenings are also doable! Sessions run between 1 and 3 hours. 

How? Drawing on 15 years of photography, marketing & design experience, I help you every step of the way and we co-create your brand shoot so it’s exactly what you want and need.

Session Options

All sessions include my exclusive Brand Clarity Workbook and a deep dive prep call before your session – it’s not just a photoshoot, it’s an opportunity to really fine tune your brand, voice & what message you’re putting out into the world.

Brand photography packages start at £995. For full information and to talk about your session, book yourself in for a free virtual cuppa – I’d love to meet you!


Ideal for nailing & building your brand, getting you noticed and showing your dream clients exactly how you can help them, and enough photos for 3 months of social media.


Perfect for a rebrand, or an annual refresh, with plenty of time to show all the different facets of your business. Your image bank and a short stills showreel mean your marketing just got easier!

Looking for just headshots?

Want to add a photographer to your team, without the HR faff?  I also offer branding photography as an annual subscription – Magic through the Seasons!

Excited? Me too!

Drop me a note, tell me about your dream photoshoot and let’s talk about how photography can transform your business.

What are you waiting for?

Get in touch and let’s talk about your perfect personal branding photography package!

With all shoots, you’ll get high resolution digital files with a full commercial use licence – so you can use them however, and wherever, you like!

You can add hair and makeup artists to any package too – I can advise on availability and pricing depending on your location.

Sounds good? Let’s chat…

(seriously, chatting is my Olympic sport)

Fabulous, I’m so pleased, thank you!

I normally hate all photos of myself, but I don’t think there’s one here I wouldn’t be happy to use. Wow, you’re good!! Talented lady 🙂

I absolutely love my photos! Carla is super lovely and the process felt so relaxed and natural. I’m SO pleased with the results, the style is just gorgeous and really reflect my business. I would highly recommend!

Carla was absolutely amazing at my session! I’m not used to being in front of the camera but she made me feel really comfortable, we spent most of the time laughing and I totally forgot the camera was there!

TL:DR Hi! I’m Carla, and I specialise in personal brand photography. It’s more than just a photoshoot – it’s a deep dive into who you are and what you stand for, and how you show up in the world. 

I’d love to capture your true self so you can show up in your business & life, and attract your most ideal clients to work with you.

I work with all kinds of business owners, from coaches to yoga teachers, makers to speakers, authors to dancers. And I’d love to work with you!

I’m based in Colchester and work mostly in Essex & Suffolk, but can cover the whole of the UK for brand photography.
