Your Portraits Taken Beautifully


To achieve beautiful quality portraits it is important to create a relaxed, friendly and professional atmosphere whether working on location, in your living room, in your office or in the studio.


Beautiful fine art portraits are the result of an invaluable collaboration between model and photographer. There are no set time limits for Heijo's portrait sessions. Heijo will spend as much time as is needed to capture your timeless photos. Having your portrait session without the need to keep track of time is of great importance to create that relaxed and fun atmosphere. Though on average sessions take about two to three hours.

A photo session can take place in your own living room, office or an outdoor location. Biggest advantage of taking the photos in your own home is that you will have your complete wardrobe ready at hand. A clear space of about three by three meters is preferred to set up studio equipment. If you do not have the required free space or would prefer not to do a studio session in your own home then it is possible to use one of the studios that are for hire throughout London.

Most of Heijo's clients are based in and around London but Heijo doesn't mind a bit of traveling if the job is further out. International commissions are welcome too. Travel and lodging costs might be added to your commission fee.


The best photos from your session are fully edited to a high standard before they are presented to you at your viewing session or in your online gallery. There is no need for you to 'imagine' what the final photos might look like. Your viewing session can be held in the comfort of your own home also. Again no need for you to travel out.


Heijo runs a fully insured business and has a clean Disclosure and Barring (CRB) check.


You are free to use and share your purchased photos on your personal website, profile pages and social media. However additional licence fees might be necessary if the photos are to be used for commercial purposes.


A deposit of £99 is required to secure your session. The deposit can be used towards your file and print purchases or fully refunded if you decide not to purchase any image from your session but is subject to terms and conditions. A small travel fee may also be asked for if Heijo has to travel out further for your session.


If you have further questions please feel free to ask or if you're ready to book you can use this form to get in touch.
