Contemporary Fashion-Inspired

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

Most of my clients are not models. They are mums, business women, curvy girls, cancer survivors…women who “always wanted to” but thought they “never could.” Even if you think you’re “not photogenic” or you live in a pair of jogging bottoms, throughout the entire shoot I will get the best photograph you have ever seen of yourself.

Kate oozes passion, pure talent and a sense of confidence and calm which is so contagious I couldn’t help but feel beautifully confident thoughout the shoot!

What is contemporary portrait photography?

_____________________________

Contemporary portrait photography is a fusion of fashion and beauty, a modern twist on the traditional “portrait”.

I’ve always been fascinated by transformations. From films such as Pretty Woman to TV shows with Trinny and Susannah on What Not To Wear and Gok Wan’s How To Look Good Naked. 

As a teenager, I spent hours flicking through glossy magazines looking at beautiful models and celebrities, wondering how they always looked so effortlessly flawless.

It wasn’t until I became a photographer than I began to understand that these images were a construction of professionals – makeup artists, stylists, assistants, photographers, pre-production and post-production all combined with flattering posing and lighting.

I wanted to offer this experience to all women. A pamper session complete with wardrobe guidance, makeup and hair styling, beautiful lighting and posing that will flatter their features and enhance their body shape so you too can have photographs worthy of being on the front cover of Vogue.
