Where are you located?

I have my own fully equipped studio close to Derby city centre offering both natural light and flash photography.
I can also shoot on location at your home, office or a place that is special to you.

Please note, travel expenses outside of the Derby area are not included.

I am not a model. I'm not very good in front of the camera.

Not to worry! It's not your job to be good in front of the camera - it's my job to guide you through your entire shoot. With easy to follow poses and flattering lighting, I promise to create the most beautiful portraits of you.

I would love to have my makeup done by a professional but I am allergic to certain makeup and beauty products, what should I do?

Prior to your photo shoot my makeup artist will consult with you about any allergies or worries you may have, and will accommodate your session accordingly. 

Can I bring someone with me to my photo shoot?

Of course! Sometimes a friend or loved one is exactly what you need to help calm your nerves at the start of your photo session. I do ask that mobile phone pictures are not taken during the portrait session.

Please note: Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. 

Why do I have to pay a deposit?

The deposit helps to secure your booking so that no one else can take your slot. It is also a show of good faith and I know you will turn up on the day. I might also have to book a professional makeup artist or hire a venue for your photo session.

How long will I have to wait to see my images?

Throughout your shoot I will show you the images as we go along. Once your finished portraits are ready, usually 1-2 weeks* after your session, we will schedule a viewing appointment for you to view and order the images you love.

*May take longer during busy periods i.e. Mothers/Fathers Day and festive holidays.

I've had my portrait taken by other photographers in the past who have charged a low sitting fee, but then at the portrait reveal appointment I was expected to pay £100's - £1,000's for my pictures! 

Your chosen portrait package is purchased upfront so there is no hidden charges when collecting your finished portraits.

Should you wish to upgrade your package at anytime, w will agree the pricing in accordance with the packages listed.

How much do you edit my photos, will I still look like me?

As little or as much as you like - by tweaking the brightness and contrast, and removing any unwanted areas on the skin* such as spots, acne or blemishes, rosacea, dark circles, and sunburn. The image is given the wow factor!

*Any permanent features including moles/beauty spots and scaring will remain visible unless stated otherwise during your consultation.
