Professional Headshots & Portrait Photography

Are you looking for an affordable professional headshot photographer, or wanting to embark on a modelling or acting career?


Janelle Cheesman is a talented photographer based in Wellington, New Zealand, with more than seven years' experience. She provides affordable headshot and portrait photoshoot sessions in Wellington, and believes everyone should have access to affordable professional photography.

Your photoshoot can be at a location of your choosing - either outdoors or in the studio in central Petone, Lower Hutt. Portrait photoshoot packages include all the best images edited and sent to you online via We-Transfer - high resolution suitable for printing on canvas.


  • 30-minute Professional Headshot Photoshoot - $175 

  • 1-hour Photoshoot - $375 ($250 for each additional hour)

  • Add hair and makeup service: $150


You do not pay per image like some other photographers charge. I edit all the images we take during our session and you get all these included in the price. There are no hidden costs. You will receive 100-300 images from your photoshoot. 

Photos will be sent within 2 weeks of the photoshoot, but most receive their edited photographs within a few days.
