The Makeover


Your Makeover Session: The Experience
Why would I want a Portraiture shoot?

You are wonderful

You are wonderful. No matter what you want to use your portrait shots for, it's important that they reflect you as you want the world to see you.  This is your opportunity to discover how really MARVELLOUS you are at this stage of your life.

What happens at the shoot?

At the session you will be pampered by a professional make-up and hair stylist and decked out in your outfits that you feel great in. Be it your favourite flowery dress or a ballgown, or that t-shirt that shows your arms off so well, they will be outfits that makes you feel great. You will look your best before I guide you through poses in the studio. Your portrait session is a celebration of you on a day of your choice.

Is there a fee involved upfront?

There is a £50 deposit to me to hold that time/day for the shoot. If you choose not to purchase any images, that £50 will be returned to you within 48 hours, or it can be put towards your portrait package if you choose to buy. There is also a one off upfront session fee of £140.00 which pays for the makeup artist’s attendance at the shoot. This needs to be paid 14 days before the shoot.

So now I’ve booked and paid £190.00. After the shoot am I obligated to buy any images?

Absolutely not. We cannot stress that enough. We are confident in our ability to provide you with images you love and within two weeks of the shoot you will be invited back to the studio to look through the images. Then you can purchase your favourite ones or not purchase anything at all (in which case your £50 deposit will be returned). There will be no hard sell, no sales tricks. Our work speaks for itself and we stand by it.

Rediscover how marvellous you are and show people how you want to be seen

I am just not photogenic…

Just because no one has taken a photo of you that you like, it doesn't mean it's you. A lot of people feel self conscious when a camera is pointed in their direction and we completely understand that. in your studio session, it’s not a race. We want to get the best possible shots of you that we can, and if we need to slow things down and the session over runs, then it over runs. This is your day. We will make you shine and we’ll create beautiful portraits of yourself or your loved ones. We are here to create them for you.

What are the options for buying?

You decide which photo collection you want to purchase when you see your fully edited photos during your photo viewing. You only purchase what you love. Our Photo collections start at £750 (please feel free to email me for a full price list). All photos purchased include the high resolution digital image as well as low resolution images for use on social media and web use.

What does my portrait shoot include?

  • Preparatory consultation

  • PROFESSIONAL make up and hair styling. (Bring your own dresses or chose from a limited selection in the studio)

  • 3 hour session with styling and Photo Shoot.

  • Full retouching of all images (not lightly retouched as the other packages shots are)

  • Up to 2 people in one session

 I’ve read all of the above, and I really want to do it, but I just feel scared about doing something like this

We totally understand that. It is a big undertaking and sometimes doing something new like this is daunting and can cause anxiety.

In the studio on the day there will be a maximum of four people, and that includes yourself. We are all there to make your day memorable, special and awesome.

I am very happy to take a phone call or meet for a coffee (where Possible) to discuss a shoot and anything about it that might be worrying you. I’ll even buy the coffee.

You are welcome to bring someone along for moral support! 

Call me on 07917 686 011 to book your complimentary, no obligation consultation.

During a phone call, we'll talk about how you want to be photographed, I'll answer any questions you might have about my process, and we'll determine if my team are the right fit for you.

It's not your job to be photogenic, it's my job to capture you the way you want people to see you

Flexible option - single images

Not everyone wants to buy a number of images so we have the below options to buy single images

Size                                                        Matted     Framed
1) 20 x 25 cm (8 x 10")     £225      +£100
2) 30 x 40 cm (12 x 16 ")
    £360      +£130
3) 50 x 76 cm (20 x 30")     £570      +£160
4) 101 x 68 cm (approx 40 x 27")     £730     +£190

Other print sizes:

If you’d like a print of one of your sessions images at another size not listed above, please let us know the size, and we will get a quote to you within 48 hours.

Please also be aware that images may look a little odd in a different size prints. Sometimes a print isn’t wide enough and will only fill part of the frame and leave gaps on various sides or other times the image is to wide and ends up looking like a close up and missing details around the outside of the image.  None of this is insurmountable however!  If you do need an image at a specific size, we’ll be able to offer an additional service to pad out the image, or ‘reimagine’ parts of the image to fit the desired frame. There would be an upfront cost for this work, and we’d give you a very competitive quote, and if you go ahead with ordering the print from us, this will be deducted from the purchase of the printed image.

If you need an image printed in a specific format or paper, please get in contact with us. We’re sure we can accommodate you.

What are Strut mounts & FoamEx?

What is a Strut mount?

Classic Strut Mounts provide your prints with a sophisticated border featuring a subtle inner debossed key line. The classic style suits all types of photography, notably school and family portraits. The strut at the back of the card also allows for both landscape and portrait orientation.

What is a FoamEx?

Foamex is a brand name, for expanded vinyl material. Foamex sheeting is made when PVC foam is compressed to create a strong board. Rigid and hard wearing, Foamex sheeting is extremely lightweight so it is ideal for display purposes.
