Contemporary, fashion-inspired portraits are more than a photography session; it’s a transformation and celebration of confidence that we all struggle to find within ourselves.
Portrait photography has changed so much now, it has become more Vanity Fair style than the old style portrait sitting. It’s a fusion of fashion and beauty, a modern twist on the traditional “portrait”.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by transformations. From films such as Pretty Woman and My Fair Lady to TV shows with Trinny and Susannah on What Not To Wear and Gok Wan’s How To Look Good Naked. When I was a teenager I used to spend hours flicking through glossy magazines looking at beautiful models and celebrities, wondered how they always looked 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.
It made me think about how amazing it would be 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.
Styling your shoot will be inspired from your sense of fashion. So whether you prefer that Calvin Klein look with jeans and a t-shirt, a stunning Cinderella ball gown or a little black dress that will always look timeless, the choice is yours. You might be thinking that you have nothing in your wardrobe to wear but the reality is, most of my clients do and if not, you could always borrow a dress from a friend or treat yourself to a new outfit that will make you feel amazing.
You don’t need any experience in front of the camera or even need to be photogenic. I will have complete control during your shoot, guiding you through each pose and facial expressions to create the most beautiful portraits you have ever owned.
This is not only a gift to yourself, but also a gift to your family, your children and your children’s children. One day they will look for photographs of you…what will they find?
