What is a portrait? An image that captures the spirit or personality of the sitter and looks great!
Forget stiff, posed mugshots and frozen, fake smiles. Our relaxed, informal style coupled with an eye for detail means we can put you at your ease to produce naturally flattering portraits. See the Portraits Gallery for examples.
See these links for detail of our packages: Individual and Family Portraits Details are also noted below in case you can't open the links.
Individual and Family Portraiture
I can come to you, setting up our mobile studio in your own home or whatever external location you wish. Be careful in picking your location, as we cannot guarantee the weather!
Your session will typically last for an hour, not including preparation (hair, makeup, outfit changes). If you have a particular time crunch, I pride myself on being able to work quickly and can normally produce good images within half and hour. Sessions for babies and young children can vary in length as the wee ones can get tired out! However, if they are well rested and fed, they can usually be in the mood for up to an hour.
Whilst many studios have eye-catching deals like 'no studio fee', they often also have eye-watering hidden costs such as exorbitant print prices or editing as an extra. My costs are totally upfront - I ask a fair fee for my studio time and dont charge over the odds for your prints. I want you have lots of prints and positive memories, rather than feel happy with the pictures, but ripped off.
Home or location Studio Session: £69
