Headshot & Personal Branding for local small business owners & entrepreneurs looking for fun, creative and personality-bursting images!

Kate McAllister Photography | Perth Headshot Photography

Personal brand photography is the art of using high-quality images to tell the story of your brand. Using photos to market and advertise your brand not only positions you as an expert in your field but it gives your clients and audience a more authentic brand experience. Whether you’re a coach, online entrepreneur, influencer or speaker; beautiful, professional photography can really take your branding to the next level.

I would love the opportunity to assist you with your Headshot & Personal Brand requirements by offering you a professional, customised photo session. I want to create a photo experience that will leave you feeling great. Your brand photography will draw clients in and give them a reason to choose you.

I look forward to working with you and bringing your vision to life.

Personal Branding Photography ‘versus’ Headshots

How do you know if you need a personal branding session?

You should consider a personal branding session if you are the face of your brand and it is important for people to connect with you and you wish to take your business to the next level by stepping up your visual branding. If that sounds like you then you’ll want your ads to look fresh, polished and professional

I wouldn’t recommend a full personal brand shoot if  – 

  • You’re at the very beginning of your business journey and you’re not quite sure what you’re offering your clients yet. Take a bit of time to establish yourself first and streamline who your ideal client is. 
  • You don’t currently do any online marketing and so are unclear on what your marketing messages are. The first step in this instance would be to decide which marketing channels are right for your business (hint – where do your clients “hang out”!) and then concentrate on setting up a presence for your business first. 

If either of the above resonates with you then you may be looking for a killer headshot instead of a personal brand shoot.  A cracking business headshot is a recent image of you that looks like you at your professional best. Clients should recognise you instantly in real life from seeing your headshot. My headshot shoots will show a glimpse of your personality, helping you stand out from the crowd and help your audience get to know you.

Feel free to contact me directly and we can have a chat to establish whether you require a full brand shoot or a set of headshot images 

How it all Works…


It’s always best to book your photo session in advance, especially if you are working towards a specific deadline. It’s also important to take the time required for photo selection and editing into account when booking your personal branding session.


Once you’ve set a date for your photo session, we can begin brainstorming ideas. I will send you a questionnaire to complete and we will start a mood board so I can get a feel for what type of images you are looking for. My goal is to paint a picture of what it is you do, and what sets you apart from your competition. These images will provide an important glimpse into what it would be like to work with you.


Preparation is key! Make sure you look out all outfits and props the night before and everything is ironed and on hangers. If you want to look great in your photos, make sure you are well hydrated on the day prior and be sure to go to bed early so you will look and feel well-rested.


Now it’s all about relaxing and enjoying the experience. I will direct you on how to pose and ensure that you get the best possible shots.  I’ll take a mix of lifestyle images and headshots to give your audience a better view of what you do on a daily basis. I’ll also take some behind-the-scenes shots for a more personal view of what it’s like to work with you.


All images will be fully edited before you receive them. I will get rid of any small imperfections and ensure that the colour looks amazing.


I work on an all-inclusive basis so you will be able to download all images within your gallery straight away. I will supply two different download options; full resolution (suitable for printing) and social size (that you will use for your social media uploads)

What packages do you offer?

THE BASIC ONE (Headshot Session) $450.00

This package is ideal for entrepreneurs just starting out with their businesses or those who don’t have any images of themselves on their website / social media. The session will take around 1 – 1.5 hours at a mutually agreed location session and you will receive a minimum of 20 digital images delivered in both full resolution and social size. The session will be a mix of headshot and lifestyle images and will be tailored toward’s your own requirements.


A full branding experience. This will include a discovery call, brand clarity questionnaire, collaborative mood board, consultation/strategy call, session fee, editing and delivery of gallery. You will receive at least 90 images that should provide up to 3 months of marketing content. You may choose to split your brand sessions into two locations if it fits your brand to do so.


Two full branding sessions (as detailed directly above) during one rolling year to ensure your branding and images are always up to date. We can work together to make sure that both sessions are cohesive enough to stay consistent with your brand but unique enough to offer something different to your customers. This is the ultimate brand experience and is the package that keeps on giving!
