Up your branding portraits. Up your results.
Professional Headshots & Branding Portraits
Your headshots and branding portraits are often the first impression you’ll make on another business person or potential employer. A professionally photographed headshot can set you up for success. By capturing your unique personality, confidence and professionalism, your business portrait will create the openings you are looking for.
These days, resumes, LinkedIn profiles, websites and advertising materials carry skilfully photographed headshots. They are used to boost recognition of professionals from all walks of life and are often viewed prior to the all-important initial face-to-face meeting. Accordingly, a professional headshot helps create an air of confirmation and comfort during that meeting as all parties realise they are dealing with the right people.
Set yourself apart from the crowd with stellar headshots that reveal the REAL you!
How much business are you missing out on by not looking professional?
How a personal branding session is different than a headshot session
Personal branding photography is a relatively new aspect of visual branding, with savvy business owners jumping on board to take their branding to the next level. A personal branding photography session differs from a typical headshot session in several ways.
With headshots, the focus is simply you, usually shot from the waist up.
Headshots are incorporated into personal branding sessions, but we don’t stop there. We delve deep into not just who you are visually, but telling the story of what you do and why you do it via detail shots, lifestyle shots, photos of you in action, you with your products, etc.
The possibilities are endless and each session is customised to best reflect the type of business you run and the message you wish to convey about your brand through images.
Become the visual leader in your industry
Whether you own a security company, are a yoga instructor or run a reptile business, the portraits we create for you will take your branding to the next level.
We start with an in depth consultation to get a full understanding of you, your products and services. We are here to help you discover what is most important to you and make sure that your business portraits will reflect every aspect of your personality. Your photographs will instantly show your clients that you are a professional and that you take your business seriously.
With our professional business portraits, you’ll stand out.
In any industry. On any page.
I was so nervous about getting my photos taken for my website. I normally can’t stand having my photo taken or looking at photos of myself.
As soon as I arrived at Jude’s studio, both Jude and Mimma (the lovely hair and makeup artist) put me right at ease. I felt like I’d known them forever!
The pampering made me feel like a princess. Then when it came time to be on camera, Jude helped me to pose in the most flattering and natural-looking positions.
Most importantly, I love the photos! My website is not ready yet but I’ve been using the photos for everything in the meantime!
I couldn’t recommend Melbourne Portrait Studio enough!
Thank you so much!

Hi, I am Jude, Studio Owner & Portrait Artist
Not many people in life get to love what they do, aspire to be better, and do better, and to be constantly inspired by those that enter their lives – but I do. Throughout my 12-year career, I have pursued my passion to create artistic, meaningful images. I pride myself in being a storyteller; I love to learn about people, and then capture the special connections and unique stories I hear in beautiful portraits.
Like most of us, life has thrown many curveballs my way. I have learnt resilience, and that by thinking positively, I can turn just about any challenges into an opportunity. The drive to not only survive, but thrive, comes from my deep love of life and all its beauty. I believe in living in the moment, enjoying the simple things, and the unlimited possibilities in this journey called life.
I am a multifaceted photographer who specialises in photographing families, pets, motherhood, branding portraits and women’s empowering portraits. Capturing life and emotions through portraits feels important to me. Children deserve to have the love that created them captured in a portrait, women deserve to feel strong, beautiful and powerful, and our fur babies can’t be with us forever, but their portraits should be. I want to make a difference, and capture history.
And most of all: I can’t wait to capture your unique story!
I would love to show YOU how amazing YOU are through my camera. I know how to see and show you your true essence, that you perhaps forgot, or maybe have never seen in yourself. Everyone is photogenic; you just need the right photographer who knows how to light, pose and coach you to show your inner light and make you shine.
Be the type of person you want to meet.
The Photo Studio
Our portrait studio is light, inviting, and will make you feel at ease. We have many beautiful collections of artwork on display, to help you imagine how your own collection will come to life in your home.
Recently we moved from a large commercial studio into our current luxurious and cosy home studio in Altona, Melbourne. The move was made for our clients and their fur babies; to capture portraits in a more welcoming and relaxed environment.
Our clients travel to us from all over Australia because of our personalised approach to understanding the unique story and personalities behind the portraits, which leads to stunning gallery style artwork.
There is ample free parking.
