“I cannot recommend Jen highly enough if you’re like me and feeling a bit old and like you’ve lost your spark. As a makeup artist I constantly get people ready for the camera but never step in front of it myself. I hated, and I mean REALLY hated, myself in photos which then leads you to hate how you look and lose all confidence. This affects your day to day life and mood more than you may think. Jen and I spent five hours in my local countryside, walking and talking whilst Jen took my picture. Being outside, rather than in a studio, opened so many more options without being limited to the usual poses, that can feel unnatural if you’re not used to it.
Seeing myself look nice in the pictures that Jen captured has made me finally see what others see, it has been nothing short of liberating.
It has been like a therapy session and that my mind has been totally rewired. Every previous photo taken of me I've just thought “Look how fat I look” With the photos Jen took my first thought was “Look how pretty I look”. I will still get awful photos of myself, but now I can see it as just a bad photo of me and move on from it.
Low confidence and lack of self esteem, affects your mood and over time, your life. If you feel like I did then I urge you to have a portrait shoot with Jen, it will change your mind-set about yourself completely!”

"Having never done a photo shoot before I felt nervous going into the experience, but I was quickly reassured by Jen and made to feel very comfortable. I grew in confidence as the shoot went on and had a wonderful time! The studio is professional yet still welcoming and cosy, and Jen's friendly, bubbly personality really made me feel relaxed.
The photos came out great and it was amazing to see the transformation I had with outstanding makeup and hair and the beautiful shots Jen captured. I'd recommend the experience to anyone as I had a lovely time."

"My mum has suffered her whole life with anxiety. She wasn't looking after herself very well and over the years I think she'd forgotten how beautiful she was. I wanted to remind her, so I booked her in with Jen for a photo. I knew it would be daunting for mum to go out into the world and feel vulnerable for a moment. But I also knew Jen and how warm she makes you feel, I knew she was the only one who could put my mum at ease.
In the studio Jen was conscientious, reassuring and delicate, bundled with her sheer talent, direction and incredible creative flare. It didn't take long for Jen to get THE shot!
The whole experience made my mum feel special again. It made her feel beautiful again. And to me and my mum, it means the absolute world to have a photo to keep forever that captures it.
What I hadn't expected was the impact it had on my mum afterwards. She has since exercised, stopped smoking and has been pampering herself, as well as showing off her picture to her friends and telling them all about her adventure!
Jen didn't just make a photo feel possible, she made a beautiful photo a reality. It was a dream come true. Thank you Jen for reminding my mum that she's beautiful"

"I took my daughter to Jen to have her first photo shoot. She was soon put at ease by Jen’s lovely nature and calm disposition. Jen is incredibly talented and it was a pleasure to watch her work. The photos are absolutely amazing. I was so impressed that I have booked myself in for a shoot too. Jen’s work speaks for itself"

"What an amazing experience and day I had with Jen and her make up artist Fern. I had some photo's done 10 years ago by her and thought it would be good to have a 10 years later comparison. Jen has this amazing ability to make people feel at ease with her warm, calm and encouraging personality. I usually dislike posing for photo's, especially so close up but after a few minutes, we got into the swing of it & I felt like a million dollars!! Jen is a consummate professional whilst still being personable and her pure talent and eye shows through in the finished product. I would highly recommend anyone to have this experience, you wont regret it! Thanks Jen & Fern x "

"What a great experience. Right from the start Jen put us at ease and made the shoot fun. When we went to view the photos we were blown away. The only problem we had was which photos to choose we loved them all and this is from two people who don’t like having photos taken. Thank you Jen we will definitely be back."
