FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHERE ARE BASED?


Right in the heart of the East Midlands close to Derby and Nottingham. I also travel around the UK. Travel costs may apply.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY PHOTO SHOOT?

Everything you need to know is featured in my 'Session Guide', which is emailed to you shortly after securing your session. This will cover exactly how you should prepare your face, body, and mind for your photo shoot.

I'M ALLERGIC TO CERTAIN MAKE-UP AND PRODUCTS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Prior to your makeover 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?

Of course! Sometimes a friend 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. 

HOW LONG WILL MY PHOTO SHOOT TAKE

You should allow 2-3 hours for your shoot - depending on the number of styling/outfit looks, location changes and the change in whether conditions (for outdoor shoots).
Please note: I only shoot one session per day, so there's no rushing to finish before the next client is due to arrive!

HOW MUCH DO YOU PHOTOSHOP - WILL I STILL LOOK LIKE ME?

Absolutely! Most of the work is done through the beautiful styling, make-up and posing. The retouching process helps to soften the appearance of lines and shadows, blemishes, sunburn and any problem areas we discuss during your consultation.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE SESSION FEE?

Your session fee is £249 - this includes your complete design consultation, professional hair styling and make-up, wardrobe and styling changes, fully guided photo shoot, professional retouching and your portrait reveal and order session. Prints and Collections are sold separately.

HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO SPEND?

There is no hard sell and the final images are your choice. My collections include luxury faux-leather Folio Boxes of professionally printed portraits, including Crystal USB to store your high-resolution digital files, and deluxe linen Photo Books with personalised detail and matching box. Collections start from £449 and Matted Prints are also available to buy separately from £69 each.

Please get in touch to request a full price guide. 

CAN I JUST BUY THE DIGITALS?

For each printed portrait you purchase, you will also receive the digital copy. The digital files cannot be bought separately. I believe that the professional photographs that I am going to create for you deserve to be displayed on only the best quality professional products.

WHO WILL SEE MY IMAGES?

Honestly, that's entirely up to you. As much I we would love to feature your beautiful images to help inspire other women to have an amazing portrait experience, I will honour your wishes if you choose to keep them private. All of the clients featured on my social media and website pages have given their permission for me to do so.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH MEN?

I do - you can view a selection of male portraits here.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS?

Though I no longer shoot weddings myself, I would be more than happy to recommend other photographers that are experts in their field.

I do however offer Bridal Portraits & Trash the Dress sessions.
