Some frequently asked questions (makeovers)

I'm a little nervous, I have no idea how to pose.   Don't worry, on arrival we'll sit down for a chat and a cuppa to run through ideas. Our makeup artist will also help to put you at ease and you'll wonder what all the fuss was about. During your portrait session, we'll all work together to coach and guide you every step of the way. It'll be a fun and enjoyable day, I guarantee you'll absolutely love it.

I want to lose weight before my portrait session.  You are not alone, I hear this from many clients, however, careful posing and camera positioning can take pounds off and you'll be surprised what a difference this makes. It's my job to make you look amazing.

I just don't think I am good looking enough.  Everyone has beauty, some on the outside, but often it's on the inside. This just needs bringing out for all to see. I have to say this is usually a confidence thing and you will leave your session with bucketfuls more than when you arrived.

Am I not too old to have a portrait like this?  I have had the privilege of photographing clients of all ages, from the very young to the very old. One thing they all had in common which age has no bearing on - a unique spark and personality that shines from within. If you will allow, I'd love to capture this magic and create something you and your family will cherish for many years.

What should I bring to wear?   I normally suggest 4 or 5 outfits, but if in doubt bring more. I'll call you a week or two before your session to run through this in more detail.

Is it ok to bring a friend?   Of course and for a small add-on fee they can get fully involved in the whole experience too, just allow a little extra time for the two sessions. Make it a girls day out, I guarantee you'll have a blast.

How long will the whole session last?   Allow 3-4 hours for one, add an extra hour for a double booking, each session is tailored to each individual client so can vary a little.

When will the photos be ready?   I'll have your images ready about a week after your session. I only show you the very best fully edited and finished images.

What will it cost?   Your session fee of £175 covers your consultation prior to your booked date, studio time for your portrait session, complimentary hair and makeup, choosing and editing your images and your personal selection appointment. You can add an extra person for just £50. Beautifully hand printed and mounted images start from £125 and we have some gorgeous collections to choose from however, there is no obligation, you only buy what you love.
