GLAMOROUS PORTRAIT


It’s more than a photoshoot.
A boutique beauty
portrait 
experience
where every little detail is 
tailored around you.

You probably heard this about a million times, and it’s true.

There is a difference between a high street photography studio and a boutique portrait photography experience. It’s not cheap, it’s not fast, but every little detail is tailored around you. It’s personal, it’s intimate, you are not just being photographed, you are being pampered.

I really see every little bit of beauty you possess. Every single woman I’ve ever photographed has been exquisitely lovely – and the interesting thing? Each completely different.

What I offer you too: working with a female team to being pampered, styled and guided to get the most beautiful pictures of you.

I am here to capture what makes YOU irresistible and so uniquely special. We’ll take care of your camera-ready hair and make-up as well as the most flattering lighting and guide you down to your fingertips on how to pose… I’ll make sure you look your very best. My superpower is to make you feel relaxed and I gently guide you through posing that flatters you to get the best version of yourself in front of the camera. Every women I photographed said the shoot was confidence boosting and one of the most fun experiences of their lives. I can promise you are going to enjoy the session and fall in love with your images! 

So, what exactly is included in the portrait experience?

Your session includes an in person consultation and planning to get to know each other more and design your photo session. The chat will include talking about you and your needs and fears, outfits and styles, professional hair and makeup styling (based on your style), the photoshoot time, and you get all the instructions how to prepare for your session. This gives us an opportunity to chat and get to know each other a little before the shoot, also for me to understand how would you like to be photographed, what look / feel you’re going for. We plan a timeline and bounce off outfit and accessories ideas to make sure you’ll be 100% happy with what we create.

Professional make-up and hair styling. I’m working with a team of highly skilled (and super lovely!) make-up artists who will create the perfect camera-ready look for you. On the day we start pampering you: you get professional hair and makeup, then we relax and tune on for the shoot. We take a look at the dresses you brought or you pick the ones you love from the studio wardrobe. 

Most of the sessions are taking place in my studio in Rugby, but there is also an option to have your boudoir shoot at an external location (like your home, a boutique hotel or outdoors if you’re feeling adventurous!)

Professional photography and posing. Then we start the shoot itself where I help you with directions to look natural and wonderful, to your best angles. My goal is to give everyone an amazing experience! You do not need to know how to pose or worry about how you’re going to look like on your images at all! I am an expert at making people relax and open up in front of the camera also to guide you with posing down to your fingertips to make sure you look your best. I’ll show you what poses and angles flatter you the most and be your coach every step of the way. No experience necessary, you just need to trust me to give it a go.

The portrait photography session usually takes between 1-3 hours depending on your package. This gives us enough time to create beautiful hair- and make-up and also a variety of outfits and backgrounds to photograph, but not too long so you won’t feel exhausted. 

Professional retouching on all your best images is included with your session. I spend time with professional retouching and select the best images of the whole day. I don’t believe in drastically altering your appearance or body type, I believe all my customers are perfectly beautiful just the way they are. I do believe in small tweaks however, to get rid of the things you are not fond of and/or correcting the bits (lumps and bumps) that appear due to wardrobe or posing. This is a collaborative process, so please don’t be shy about telling me to get rid of a certain mole or scar or stretchmark.

About two weeks after your photo session you are invited back for the reveal session where you see your images for the first time and you select the ones you fell in love with. This is a private viewing and selection of your final images. After the initial presentation, we’ll step through the images one by one and start picking favourites. Following that, we’ll determine which products and collections will suit you best based on the images we’ve created, your goals for the shoot, and on your lifestyle. I offer a range of beautiful photographic albums, archival wall art, high-resolution digital image packages, and more. 

I highly recommend this shoot for everyone as I would love to show you how others see you. Come alone or with your partner, best friend, your mum or your children to share this experience with them.

My clients are not models, they are all everyday women just like you – mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, brides, singles, regardless of curves, sizes, shapes or ages. They are all nervous just like you would be when arriving for their photoshoot after styling consultation. All of them are leaving with a great experience and fun behind at the end, knowing that the results are going to be stunning.
