You can expect ...
Even if it's one headshot you're needing, I take the time to get to know you, your business, brand, services and needs so that your images are not only visually compelling but also strategic. More than just "nice pictures", your images will speak directly to your intended audience, target market and business goals. They will be effective tools you can use to help scale your business and distinguish yourself from competitors.
I will organize and guide you through your entire photography experience, start to finish. You (and your team) will know exactly what to expect, how to prep, where to go, what to do (how to pose!) every step of the way. Clarity, direction and organization are the order of the day for my consistent, proven results.
No matter how comfortable you (or members of your team) are in front of a camera, I create a positive experience that will make you look and FEEL amazing in front of my lens before a single edit is ever made. It’s my specialty to make people feel confident and secure - and your photos will reflect that. Whether it's a single headshot or a full branding session, you will (finally) have images you'll feel proud to use and share.
I make real people look REALLY good.
Your photographic experience with JEMMAN Photography begins with a consultation about what you might be needing, how you’d like to be photographed, what I can do to help and how best to prepare for a successful photoshoot. Any permissions, locations and 3rd party services like hair, makeup and styling will be arranged. You’ll receive crystal-clear booking instructions with all the step-by-step details and a non-refundable retainer will be collected to lock in your date.
Now for the secret sauce: No wait times and no more being in the dark about what your photos look like! Because I shoot tethered for most shoots, your images will immediately load into my computer for instant viewing, feedback and guided selection in real time. This allows us the opportunity to modify as needed throughout the shoot to ensure each capture we create is the absolute best reflection of you. You will know exactly what you’re getting before the end of your shoot and feel confident that your photographic needs have been 100% satisfied.

I showed up nervous but Elenora was quick to make me feel at ease and take control of picking outfits for me to manage my stress! Her hair and makeup team were fabulous. She was great with giving direction. I especially appreciated the feedback to choose photos as it was a little overwhelming, but her sharp eye and attention to detail helped me see which ones were my best!"
-Jennifer T., Realtor
I do not like having my photo taken - read this as I absolutely hate it - but Elenora made me feel so much at ease that I actually enjoyed it! (That's a first in over 45 years!) Her hair and make up team were really good too! I am over the moon with the end results. I assure you, you will be satisfied working with Elenora.
-Isabelle T., Coach
Elenora took the time to get to know me, explain the photo shoot and make the entire photo shoot an enjoyable experience. Thank you Elenora for bringing out the best in me and creating photos that I am excited to share."

Most definitely! In your discovery call, we'll dive into your business (target market and goals), website (if you have one), digital marketing and social platforms to identify gaps and make all the photography recommendations based on what we find.
Yes! I'll make recommendations in our discovery call, am available as you plan / shop for suggestions and will help "dress" you on shoot day. I can also connect you with a stylist if you need further assistance. I know some great ones who will even shop for you!
Almost all the subjects you see in my portfolio have had professional hair and makeup. A professional application of hair and makeup lends the most polished results in images. I have a team of trusted artists who will take care of you, ensuring you will still look like yourself in photos - but refreshed and energized, like you've just come back from holidays, rested and ready to take on the world. If you're unsure or have specific needs, we'll chat more about this in your discovery call to determine what is best for you.
Depending on what you're needing, I typically book 2-3 weeks out for simple headshots; 4-6 weeks out for branding because you'll need that time to prepare for your session (fresh haircut, prepping outfits, props etc); 6-8 weeks out for power teams so that we have time to rally all the key players. Availability of 3rd party hair and makeup services may also affect scheduling.
For most headshot and branding sessions, delivery of polished images is typically 48 – 72 hours after final payment, slightly longer for larger sessions.
This is the part that my clients absolutely LOVE. I shoot tethered which means your photos automatically load into my laptop for instant viewing. You’ll be able to receive and GIVE feedback on your images every step of the way – which allows us to modify and adjust things as we go along so that we’re only producing consistent, quality images of you throughout your session. At the end of your session, we’ll review your gallery together and cull down to your absolute favourites with quick editing adjustments, cropping, zooming in, making side-by-side comparisons … you will end your session happily knowing exactly which images will serve you best and how to use them!
You're not alone. Just about everyone feels this way. I will show you that a great photo has little to do with you (it's the truth!) and everything to do with what goes on behind the camera! Pre-, during and post-shoot, I will guide you and direct you every step of the way, giving you guidance and feedback so that you can mark your progress, feel confident and be certain you are absolutely getting the images you hired me for. I will literally take care of everything and you will (finally) have images you feel good to share.
Yes! I can connect you with some amazing professionals who can look after all your website, branding and social media needs. In fact, working alongside these specialists for your photography will ensure you get the best possible results for your business!
