If you need it Super Speedy

I want to let you know about a special photo shoot day just for people that need to update their professional head shot for social media and/or website, but don’t have the time for a full ‘personal branding ‘ photo shoot. This is a quick and easy photo session at my studio – you will be there no more than 30 minutes – and you will come away with a great head shot for you to use!

This SUPER SPEEDY HEAD SHOT SESSION is being held on Thursday 21st November from 9.30am at my studio at Tingira Heights. To book, all you need to do is go to Melissa Histon Photography Facebook page and click on the BOOK NOW button or go to . On the day you have a choice of backdrop colours – white, black, grey and teal. There is also an additional option for ladies that would like their makeup done (this will take an extra 40 minutes).

You may have noticed more and more people with a head shot or profile pic to show their ‘best self’ on websites such as LinkedIn and Facebook. I certainly have been getting busier and busier doing ‘personal branding’ photo shoots for business people to produce a suite of great corporate portraits with ‘wow factor’ they can use for social media and other websites and PR opportunities.

If you are a bit nervous about having a full photo shoot or are super busy and don’t have time for a full photo shoot, this could be a good opportunity for you to still great a great head shot!

Of course, if you would prefer a full ‘personal branding’ corporate portrait shoot, just let me know by emailing or calling 0405405245.

Have a fab day!

Announcing Our Rebrand …


I know it has been a while since I touched base with you, but I wanted to tell you about some of the changes that have been happening in my business.

Firstly, I have changed my name…actually not my name but my business name. Last time you heard from me I was using the business name Living Doll Photography. Well, that name has now been put out to pasture.

 You see, I have moved away from photographing children and am now focussing on commercial photography, corporate portraits and bespoke portraiture. So I thought it best to re-brand as Melissa Histon Photography (it sounds a bit more ‘grown up’).

 And with this name change has come a brand new website to showcase the three areas of focus for Melissa Histon Photography…PLUS it has a new online SHOP where you can purchase my Fine Art Photographs.

 The website is easy to navigate and can give you a real feel for what you can expect when engaging me to look after your photography needs.

 The three areas the website profiles are Commercial, Corporate and Bespoke photography. So jump on over and take a look for yourself …

The other really exciting project that has come to life with the new website is you can now purchase my Fine Art Photographic Prints online.

The only thing I love more than capturing beautiful images, is to be able to share them with others. People have often approached me to sell an image I have created, and so I was encouraged to share my work with others on a wider scale. All the Art Prints are limited edition, numbered and signed by me and come mounted.

 The images are available exclusively via the Melissa Histon Website and can be viewed via the link below:

 I hope you love the collection I have created as much as I do.

 Have a super-fab day!
