Who is Bex Wood and Jamie Duggan?

Jaime Duggan is a devoted mother, spouse, and driven entrepreneur who understands the challenges of managing work, family, and personal wellness. She has a deep passion for holistic health and has committed herself to helping busy women like you harmonize their lives amidst the daily hustle.


Bex Wood is a photographer with a knack for capturing your true essence! Her journey into photography wasn't a direct path, as she spent nearly 15 years in legal operations management before discovering her creative purpose. Like many creatives, this purpose only unveiled itself after years of immersion in a different realm. Now, Bex uses her keen eye and vision to help clients, especially professional women age 30-65+, explore and express themselves through impeccable headshots that truly reflect their individuality.
