Headshots & More Shoot
I’m delighted to introduce you to Caroline, of Caroline Bruce Designs. She booked my recent headshot day in Sevenoaks, and had so many ideas that we ended up doing a double session! So she now not only has a range of headshots to share for her business, but also a set of more creative, ‘arty’ shots that she can use too.

Caroline is an amazing luxury dress designer. She does the whole thing from creating unique designs, making the patterns, sourcing the material, and sewing the whole garment. Whether that’s for her own collections, or making something bespoke for her customers with their input and designed to suit them. And all on a sustainable basis, with ethical, low impact and eco-friendly fabric. I have photographed branding photos for her before, and some of Caroline’s collections too, so it was lovely to update her headshot photos this Spring. So keep scrolling to see examples of the photos from the Headshots And More photo shoot with Caroline Bruce.
Headshots of Caroline…
First we concentrated on the main set of headshots, and took a variety of images of Caroline wearing different outfits that capture her personality and her brand.
Your headshot for your business needs to do several things to work effectively for you. It needs to look good, it needs to look like you, it needs you to love it so that you are happy to use it, it needs to look professional so that your business does too, and it needs to look like part of your brand. All so that it gives a great first impression, and the right impression, of you and your business.
I think we achieved all that with Caroline’s headshots! Plus we’ve got a variety, with and without her glasses, and with different smiles (I prefer her smiling ones, she prefers not to show her teeth!). We used my black background for some of them too, which I really love. (Fortunately, it suits Caroline’s brand).
Desk Shots of Caroline…
Then we did a few desk shots, utilising some of the props that Caroline had carefully picked out and brought with her. (I will help you with ideas for what to gather together for a Branding Photography session or what to bring to a Headshots or Headshots and More session). We can usually fit in a few desk set ups in a standard single Headshot Day shoot if you would like any.
Headshots and more shoot with Caroline Bruce…
Then we finished up by using the second half an hour creating some totally different photographs, which I really love. These are much more of a portrait/branding photo of Caroline than a straightforward headshot – have a look at some below. Usually we would only get these kind of photos during a full branding shoot, but because Caroline and I have worked together before, and know each other well now, we were able to do these in the second half of the double Headshot Day session.
“Wow, they’re fantastic!” – Caroline, at first sight of her photos!
“Can’t get over those pictures, thank you… I really enjoyed it, but now I have to choose some!” – Caroline
Headshots and More shoot with you?
So, do you need some new headshots? Take a look at the Headshot Day info here on my website, where it will also give you the next available date.
Or do you need more than that? My branding photography packages are here on the Branding Photos page – one of these will give you lots more variety, more photos, taken in a location(s) that is bespoke to you and your brand.
If you can’t stretch to a whole branding shoot though, then why not book a double Headshot Day session like Caroline, and turn it into a Headshots and More shoot? Do let me know if you would like a chat to discuss which option is right for you – firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with you soon!

“I really enjoyed the headshot session with Jane as I feel comfortable with her taking pictures of me. Jane knows how to get me to smile naturally and get the best photos of me. Jane kindly agreed to allow time for some more creative shots and was open to my input as I like to be a bit different!” – Caroline
