This is the right time to invest

Booking a Professional Portrait Photographer might not seem like the most urgent decision you’re going to make this year. 

You might also feel a bit “blurry eyed” from looking at all the “professional photographers near me” Google search results.

All the images look amazing and you’re not sure if it is for you!

I want to reassure you that working with me as a Professional Photographer, is a great investment in your brand and something that will help you on to the next level, as it has done for my other clients.

My clients  are not models – although they could be – but people running their own business, professionals, founders, parents.

Don’t just take my word for it, take a look at the reviews.

Laura was amazing, I highly recommend her.

I always feel I never look like my normal self in a professional picture. As a professional brand photographer Laura made me feel remarkably comfortable, she had suggestions and ideas for me and managed to capture natural but elegant photos of me that actually look like me.”

Stephanie Martens Damalis, London.

I had a brand photoshoot with Laura.

“I recommend Laura for quality and professional photos. From the very beginning of our initial call she was professional. On the actual day, she was welcoming and we had so much fun taking those gorgeous, brand photos. I recommend Laura to anyone.”

Beatrice Anim, London.

The session was fun & a great experience. Laura made me feel comfortable and confident.

“Laura Shimili is an amazing professional photographer. The session was fun and such a great experience. Totally recommended! “

Laura was excellent at all points of contact when I was arranging to have work photos done. Very helpful and friendly and when I had the photos done, she was very professional and knowledgable which really helped me relax so she could get some great photos. I am really pleased with the photos she took and was delighted there were so many to choose from. I highly recommend her as a photographer.

I needed some headshots and content photos for my new website and was dreading the photo shoot as I dislike posing for a camera. I always feel I never look like my normal self in a professional picture. Laura made me feel remarkably comfortable, had suggestions and ideas for me and managed to capture natural but elegant photos of me that actually look like me. She was amazing. I highly recommend her!

I've been avoiding corporate headshots for most of my career, but finally ended up in a position where I couldn't put them off any longer. Laura was absolutely brilliant throughout the initial enquiry, photoshoot and post-shoot editing. She put me at ease while she took the photos, and clearly knew exactly what she was doing with poses, lighting and angles. The end results were brilliant, and I could not be happier with the finished product. I will 100% be using her again for future photography needs! Highly recommend.

I had a wonderful experience with Laura for my professional headshot. From the moment I received a (very quick) response to my initial enquiry email, to when I received my gallery of photos, Laura was responsive to my photo requirements, professional and friendly. The shoot made me feel at ease. I'm usually very awkward in front of a camera, and Laura clearly understands how to get the perfect shot for those who may be camera shy! The gallery of photos were fabulous. Overall, I am really impressed and can't wait to use my photo to highlight my work. Highly recommend!

We had a fantastic experience with Laura. She managed to make everyone feel comfortable (despite some of us having had a terrible day) and took the most wonderful photos. Laura was cognisant of the family interactions and managed to keep everyone on an even keel. Highly recommended!

Laura is such a professional and warm-hearted photographer! I took part in her 40 over 40 campaign, which is an ongoing project throughout 2022! Amazing to celebrate the eras above 40 🙂 The pictures came out brilliantly, and I would recommend Laura to anyone! Thank you and keep up with your 5 star service, Laura! x
