Portraits for Authors

Oct 17, 9am – 5pm >>

All writers need a professional author headshot. Whether it is for social media, your author’s website, the Writers in the Schools brochure, or a book jacket — your image connects you with your audience. Nicola Davison of Snickerdoodle Photography will be leading this professional development session. A writer herself, Nicola will make you feel comfortable and provide you with portraits you’ll love.

Each session is 20 minutes long and includes three retouched portrait images. Once you sign up and pre-pay, the WFNS will be in touch to set up a specific appointment time and provide tips on preparing for your session.

In keeping everyone safe during this time, we require that everyone arrives wearing a mask and uses hand sanitizer on arrival. We will sanitize touched surfaces between appointments and practice social distancing. We are grateful to the Delmore “Buddy” Daye Learning Institute for letting us use its bright, light-filled space.


     “Nicola put me 100% at ease, and the result was a series of photos that actually looked like me–but me at my best. She offered choices of black and white or colour, and made sure I had some smaller resolution photos for social media. She is 100% terrific!” — Janet Barkhouse
     “Nicola made me feel right at ease for my portrait session, and I was so happy with the resulting photos. I’d recommend her without question.” — Georgia Atkin 
     “Nicola was fantastic to work with. She created an upbeat, welcoming atmosphere during my shoot. Throughout the editing process she was very responsive to any questions and I received my final images in a very timely manner. I’m quite happy with the finished product, and would definitely work with her again!” — K.R. Bygddin
