LUXURY PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE
CREATE YOUR ULTIMATE PHOTOS
YOU ARE PROUD OF
Everything is made to offer you a
unique luxury experience and create
images that you will love FOREVER.
I know that being photographed is one of the most awkward feelings of all… people would rather go to a dentist than being professionally photographed. I help you eliminate this fear. It is my job to get you relaxed and comfortable in front of my camera, it is my job to gently guide you through posing that flatters you and your body during the photo session – regardless of your age or weight. I help you to gain more confidence and to accept your body image for every ages and shape. You are not a number, not a size and definitely will get all the help you need to create your most beautiful photos.
What to expect?
Your session fee is £150 which includes a detailed consultation to get to know each other more. 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 photoshoot. For family photos I always suggest the ladies arrive first to get pampered, then the boys come at the end and join us for the last 30 minutes of the session. My clients find this very handy as we all know boys & men can be bored. Actually, this also gives you some quality time spending with your mum or daughter, or some time for you to get pampered without the kids – this is an ultimate day out with beautiful results at the end.
The fee also includes hair and makeup artistry made by professionals, the shoot itself (approximately 2 hours) with professional retouching and the reveal session where you see your images printed for the first time. During your photo shoot you will get to wear up to 5 different outfits so that you will have photos for a variety of uses! You could use them for social media, headshots for work, photos for your partner, gifts for your family, just because you don’t have any photos you love of yourself and it’s time that you have beautiful portraits – there are so many reasons to have photos!
You only decide which photo collections or images you would like to purchase when you see your fully edited photos during your photo viewing. You only purchase what you love, there is no obligation to buy. Some people spend £300 and some spend £3000 with me. I also have some value packages to choose from as well as framed products to go on your wall.
You are welcome to bring your mother, best friend, sister, husband, wife, kids, or anyone special to your photoshoot to get photos together as well!
My photography studio is located in Rugby, Warwickshire, just a 5-minute drive from the M6 and M1 and also close to the train station. Bookings are open to:

Your session fee includes
DREAM SHOOT PLANNING CONSULTATION
I will call you and if possible invite you to my studio to talk about your photo shoot. I will ask every detail from you to make sure you will be entirely satisfied. I will answer all your questions and I will let you know how to prepare for your session.
Your Portraits will serve as your daily reminder that Yes, you are loved. You are incredible. You are gorgeous, radiant and can be confident.
You can take a look and you will have access to the Studio wardrobe with over 30 dresses to choose from and mix with your own outfits. You will have up 5 outfits changes during the photo shoot. I can also recommend you some amazing image consultants and personal stylists who can help you with choosing the right colours or even go and do some shopping with you to be fully prepared for the photo shoot day.
PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND MAKEUP
My amazing team of professionals will make sure that you are being pampered to the highest standards. During your pre-consultation you will get instructions how to arrive on the day to be ready for the makeover. You can get to try out our vegan makeup and skincare products as well.
FULLY GUIDED PHOTO SHOOT
I will help you to feel great and comfortable in front of the camera. I help you through posing and directing as I know what beautiful looks like. I promise you will find this relaxing.
It’s not your job to be ‘photogenic’ or ‘good in front of a camera’. It’s my job to pose you and guide you through your entire photoshoot.
PORTRAIT REVEAL SESSION
2-3 weeks after your photo shoot we invite you back to the studio to see your beautiful images for the first time. Be prepared to become emotional while meeting yourself on your printed photographs but don’t worry we always have tissue papers to save you! You can pick and purchase the images you love, and I guarantee you will love them all, meet the products and can take further print orders to your wish. We will inspire you by revealing the possibilities for your images. Whether you want something for your wall or you have your eye on one of our luxurious albums, our products will show off your portraits beautifully.
HIGH-END QUALITY PRODUCTS to purchase
Your gorgeous mounted fine art 5x7″ prints are ready to frame and perfect for stand-alone or in grouping for display. If you go for the packages, you can choose from some amazing luxurious 10x8″ folio boxes to store your 5x7″ print collections. There is an option to upgrade for 7x10″ prints in 11x14″ mounts and folio boxes too. There are various size prints available to be framed or to go with the incredible HD Acrylic print with its modern technology that is inks certified for 100+ years.
MEET THE STUDIO
My boutique photography studio, named Studio YOU is located in Rugby with free parking facilities, just 5 minutes from M1 and M6, close to the town centre and to the train station with a great connection to London, Coventry and Birmingham.
It offers a cosy beauty pampering room, separate dressing room, a boudoir suite and a spacious natural light photostudio.
Do you provide wardrobe for the photoshoot?
Yes, we do have a studio wardrobe you may use during your photoshoot. However, because women come in many shapes, sizes and have a wide array of style preferences, I still ask you bring your own wardrobe your photo session and we can mix and match your items with my wardrobe if you want. During your initial consultation, we will discuss specifically what wardrobe you should bring in and ideas on how to get the desired look.
Do you work with clients currently visiting your location?
Absolutely. Some of my clients do their photoshoot while here on vacation, training or on business trips. We can do your design consultation and reveal via Skype if you don’t live nearby.
Why do you sell printed artworks? I really just want digital images.
I believe people should exist in printed portraits. Something you can hold, feel and see from a closer look. Digital files don’t do justice to the artistry of a portrait. Nobody cherishes a pen drive, thumb drive, DVD, a phone gallery and hang them on a wall or keep them in a portrait box. On the other hands, prints, if well cared will live through many generations and will outlive you. My portraits are guaranteed to last 70+ years. One day your children will look for photos of you; – What will they find? With that in mind, because I also believe in the digital era we live today I also offer the digital copy of all your purchased images, so instead of just having the print, you get them both. When you purchase a photograph you’re not just buying a print, you’re buying a piece of art.
What types of printed products do you offer?
Gorgeous matted wall portraits (which are printed photographs matted on a premium paperboard ready to be framed). We also offer gorgeous keepsake portfolio boxes handmade in Ireland. You can also purchase framed artworks up to 24x30 sizes, as well as modern Acrylic prints with 100+ years of guarantee.
What is your turnaround time?
On average I prefer having 3-5 weeks from the initial point of contact to the delivering of pictures. However, I have been known to accommodate a variety of needs and delivered images in as little as 2 weeks (yes with printed photographs). If you have a particular deadline or a special request please get in touch and I’ll see what I can do for you. Framed orders can take long and very busy periods like Christmas time sometimes require longer turnaround from the suppliers I work with.
Do you offer payment plans?
