It’s critical to project the right image.   If you are using a selfie chances are that you are losing sales on a daily basis because you’re not creating the connection you intended with your clients.
Its not about looks, it’s more about the level of professionalism that you exhibit in images of you online. If you want to project a high quality image that’s going to attract your target audience, it starts by figuring out what you want to project and doing that consistently across all platforms, social media, websites, email, print media, press releases.

In business we need to make sure we project an image that reflects the real you, allow people to see who is behind the brand,the real people they are going to be dealing with. Showing the real you creates authenticity in your brand and will develop loyal connections with the type of client you want to attract.

Businesses spend a lot of time, money and energy to attract and enlist clients. How long does it take to convert a client?
The truth is it takes 1/10th of a second. It’s in that very first impression that they make of you, based on the image that you project that they will decide to work with you or not.

What our customers are saying…

“I was always embarrassed to use my photographs in our media/marketing materials until Karen photographed me. Now I’m proud to use my head shots in all our marketing! 

It was great to have Karen photograph our staff on site so that it was a minimum disruption to the day. Each staff member had a 15 minute time slot and we were able to get everyone done in one day. The photos are natural looking shots that our staff are happy to use in the marketing materials where previously we all avoided using them! 

We still get Karen to come out and for smaller groups on site as she is always willing to come in for half days and it is just worth it for our staff to not be out of the office for half the day.”

“A recruiter told me that I wasn’t being considered as I didn’t have a profile shot on Linkedin. I was worried about being over 50. Once my studio photo, by Karen Merry was put on Linkedin, the level of interest increased tenfold!”

Michael Partoglou, Category Manager
Total Tools

“Thank you Karen for my amazing profile photos! It was great to have a selection of photos to choose from so that I could use a variety of shots in my different roles. It was such a lovely compliment to have Laser Clinics Australia use my shot in their marketing. 

The photos were all so good, so much better than my previous selfie! The shots feel much more like me, Karen really captured me. 

I’ll be back for my annual head shot updates and I trust Karen will always get the best shot to show me in the best light.”

Malinda O’Shannassy, Director of Nursing
Windsor Hospital Laser Clinics Australia

“You get way more than photography when Karen photographs you.  It’s obvious she really cares and connects with clients and it shows in the images.

Karen has this amazing ability to put you at ease so the photographs are of the natural you. Being photographed has always been uncomfortable for us and it often showed in the strained smile on the images. Not with Karen – it is a gift and a special one that allows her to bring out the real you and it is obvious from the final result.

Without doubt, Karen’s work were the best set of photographs we have ever had. Brian’s comment was – I didn’t know I could look so good!”

Brian & Helen Maguire

Brian Maguire, Absolute Clarity Communications

Working with Karen in a professional photo shoot was a great experience. Makeup with Kate Castle from Arbone (optional) was well worth it. I am very happy with the resulting photos and I can use them well. Karen’s skills and clear communication are excellent- which makes her a professional in her field. She is inspired to learn more about portrait photography and has done courses to be the best she can be in her field. Thanks Karen!

Susan Spelic, The Reading Mountain

Karen is the best head shot and portrait photographer I know! She took the best shots I have ever had for my website and social media profiles! I have subsequently used her for photo shoots for my PR clients and everyone loves both her work, her prices and her personality! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen and Merry images for anyone wanting some great shots at a reasonable price.

Jules Brooke, Handle Your Own PR

It was a pleasure to work with Karen and the resulting photo’s were the best I’ve ever had done. I’ve used the head shots taken by Karen on my website and social media and have received many positive comments. I’m very happy with all the results.

John Ger, Tamarind Tree Gourmet Sauces

Karen was very professional and made me feel at ease straight away! I loved the photos she took at my business. The professional head shots in my workspace are natural and show off what I do!!

Lisa Eddy, Katamatite Garlic

Karen has been a fantastic resource both for head shots and product showcasing. She has quickly identified what has been required and the resulting images have really helped improved our position.
