You can Beat the Fear of the camera

I used to feel so nervous my mouth would twitch. I have made it my mission to get you to feel and act confident on camera. So you can even take my trusted techniques with you to your next shoot!

You will never 'feel ready'

The beach-perfect body doesn't exist. You will never feel 100% ready. Visit the hairdresser, go shopping if you'd like an excuse, and the rest we'll take care of.


You'll Learn to project with confidence

Learn before and during your shoot, how to project yourself in body and style with the confidence you need others to perceive.

Let's get to work on your best headshot yet

Has the panic set in over finding a headshot photographer in London who will banish your fear of the camera? Then it's a good thing you're here. All my clients want that fear to dissipate and to walk out with flattering portraits that they almost feel aren't their own.

My clients are women change makers who lead and excel. But even the best of us feel that crushing fear when we look at the barrel of a lens. There are so few family photos with me when I was younger because I would run off before my Dad could press the shutter. I've taken advice from psychologists to world leading photographers. My process creates the safe environment that it takes to capture a mirror image that you actually like.

"Personally, I felt like she took me by the hand the whole way through."

- Lorena

ask me anything!




I have a comfortable home studio in South East London, full of natural light and often visited by my cat, who likes to say hello mid-shoot.

You can get here on Overground tube lines, bus and mainline train from London Bridge or Blackfriars. There's also free on street parking.

Where do you take the headshots?



Natural light is the most flattering kind of light, and my studio is designed around using and adapting it to the kind of shot we're aiming to get. I also have studio lights if you are dead set on it, but most, if not all, of the shots you see here have been taken with natural light.

is natural light ok for headshots? what about winter?



I will guide you as to what colours and textures to wear and would absolutely encourage you to bring more options than you need so I can give you wardrobe advice on the day too.

what should i wear?



I only want a couple of photos. Why do I need an hour?

Unless you're a professional on-camera, your best headshot is unlikely to be taken in the first ten minutes. Longer sessions mean you relax and try out different poses. You might be surprised that different outfits and props look better than you expected. Plus, once you're really happy moving in front of the camera (yes, it does happen!) you'll have more fun and a greater variety of photos.



can you come to us?

If you need a team photographing, I can come to you. I also offer posing and presentation confidence workshops alongside headshot sessions. Ask for my full pricing brochure for more details.



Why are professional headshots so expensive?

Professional headshots give you the quality, inspiring image that you know in your heart you won't get elsewhere. It's an investment that's reflective of the time, effort and skill involved, not to mention the eye-watering cost of equipment.

are professional headshots worth it?

Ask my clients...

As a busy working Mum I find it difficult to take the time to focus on myself. Frances made it feel so easy and such fun. Often the experience of having a camera pointing towards you can feel awkward and Frances made me feel very at ease.

Lucy, professor of film, London

"I'm not a photogenic person, I look awkward in photos most of the time. So I worried a lot, but she was naturally talented! I felt relaxed. I'm so glad I found her. I recommend Frances 100% - you won't regret it."

Soonah, London
