Just about anyone who can aim a camera can make a portrait. It goes without saying that some do it better than others. Top portrait photographers do it all the time, reliably producing outstanding portraits with just about every subject they photograph. Why is that?
What do they know and what do they do that makes their portraits special? The answer to both these questions is “quite a bit,” because there is lots to know about a lot of things in order to produce a great portrait.
There are many components to getting a good portrait, but the main component is control by the photographer. You will be made to feel comfortable and relaxed so you don't need to worry if you feel that you're not great in front of a camera. Most professional models sometimes feel uncomfortable and silly when being photpgraphed. It's all about looking through the camera as if its not even there. Sounds hard I know but actually its very easy. Some people are natural and some take a little warming up, but we always get there in the end! There are no time pressures in my sessions in the studio or on location, so the more relaxed you become the better the shoot will go. There's really no need to worry, you'll be amazing and you will be surprised at the results.
What an amazing experience! Carl was great and made me feel very special throughout the session. My photos were absolutely brilliant, he captured me so well and everyone who saw the photographs wanted to get some done. Thank you so much Carl, fantastic day.

Our sessions involve professional make up and styling (by my talented wife) to give you the ultimate experience. You'll be given a breif based on your requirements but ultimately Lucy's wealth of styling experience will help guide you in the right direction to get the right look for you. You'll need to bring some outfits with you so you have some options of what works and what doesn't. This is all part of the service, you will not only feel like a superstar but you will look like one in the photos afterwards. Our individual portrait sessions start from as little as £150 (including x6 professionally edited photos on a memory stick) family sessions from as little as £250 depending on the breif and amount of family members, the £250 is based on 4 people. We cater for all budgets so we can come up with a package to suit your budget on request. All children are dressed (by you, we can supply all new outfits if necessary) and styled (buy my wife) so that you get the best possible results from the shoot.
If you have any question about our portrait sessions then please do get in touch and we can have a chat.
