The Art of Your Brand
YOUR PERSONAL BRAND IS IMPORTANT.
You are already a brand. Everyone is. Even if you don’t always feel it…
WHETHER A SMALL BUSINESS, A SINGLE PROFESSIONAL, OR A CREATIVE – YOUR PERSONAL BRAND MATTERS. A professional portraiture session lets you steal the show, which in my eyes, is your show anyway. Casual photographs (like ‘selfies’) aren’t right in many places nowadays, and to move onto the next level, you might need something that captures you naturally, professionally, with your best side on show for all to see.
Are you ready to set yourself for success?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frighten us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.“
“I invite you to a personal session with me,
I’ll show you a side of you that doesn’t usually get to be seen.
I want you to be able to see the
beautiful, natural, confident woman in yourself.”
Your session includes
This is where we'll start designing your photoshoot. What to wear, what style, how to prepare, we will have a consultation preshoot.
This session is all about you. Hair, make-up, you’re totally pampered and together we go through the outfits you brought and choose which works best. It’s important you feel beautiful in order to feel confident in front of the camera, and this session will definitely make you feel it!
This is where the fun with the camera starts. Forget all you thought you knew about when people take shots of you, let me work my magic and we’ll see what happens. Which side of you will come bursting through? Only time will tell…
The you, you’ll keep forever. We’ll go through your shots and you can choose which ones you would like to buy. Most people choose between 10-20 shots. The end result will probably be a portrait, as you’ve never seen yourself before. You might be surprised with what we end up with, and you’ll definitely be pleased.

“Cristina knows how to capture the very essence of a person in a photograph. She is extremely professional and goes the extra mile to make sure she gets the shot. And in addition to all of that, she’s a blast to work with.”
Athalie StegemanBusiness Transformation Consultant / The Innovationbroker
“Cristina is a natural professional in photography. How often do you see yourself in a picture thinking: “my god is this really me?” Cristina’s ability to catch the moment of true personal happiness gives me that natural and fresh professional picture that I like to present to the world.”
Dorota Klop-SowinskaTransformation Coach / DoSo!Coaching & Counseling
“Cristina is a great person to work with. She did a photo shoot for me for the Xpat Journal and also for my website and social media. I was extremely happy with the end result: the photo’s. She also delivered it timely and more than we initially agreed. During the photo shoot she put me immediately at ease, she was professional & friendly at the same time. Most importantly people loved the photo’s Cristina took of me.”

“Cristina is an intuitive photographer with an eye for the personality inside the sitter… she is also funny and a pleasure to sit for. Her pictures look wonderfully fresh and professional and I am going to work with her again for sure!”
Lara ManquiOwner and Founder / Flourish
“This photo shoot was an incredible experience. The outfits Tammy chose for me and the way Cristina captured me on camera helped me to finally be able to show my true, beautiful self. Also, having photos I’m proud of to send out for speaking engagements and other business related activities saves me so much time and mental energy.”
"Tammy totally understood how to style the concept of what I write in a way that kept me in the forefront as a writer — as opposed to leaving me buried in one of my character’s costumes. She put together a texturally varied wardrobe for the photoshoot that not only worked on the day, but that works for me day today as well. Tammy’s attention to detail is excellent and she styled everything from well-fitted underwear to hats and velvet-covered hula hoops. I’d recommend Tammy for her insightful understanding of a brief, her professionalism and her ability to pull a striking look out of a somewhat small and random wardrobe."
How will I know how to pose?
I will work with you and show you the poses that will work for you and your body. I will direct your poses and you don’t need to have any prior experience.
When do I pick up my photos ?
30 days after your shoot there will be a face-to-face session at my studio, I call it the “Reveal”, where you get to admire and order your printed and matted photos. How many you buy, it’s up to you.
Do you retouch the images?
Yes, all your images are retouched, spots and blemishes are removed unless stated otherwise.
Who can I bring along at the photoshoot?
If you would like to share the experience with your mum, daughter, sister, friend, partner, you are welcome to invite them into the shoot. Make it a girls day out!
My name is Cristina and I am a portrait photographer. I’ve learned through the years that photographing the lives and hearts of women runs so much deeper than just getting your picture taken. It’s an emotional experience, one that exposes vulnerabilities, but all the while empowers and uplifts. It’s an experience I want every women to have. One where she realises her beauty is unmistakable and the role that she plays in this world is both irreplaceable and imperative. My promise to you is that once you step in front of my camera, this will happen. And it’s an experience you won’t forget.
I look forward to seeing you in my studio.
