Portraits are the pinnacle of experimentation. In the studio things are friendly, we’ll enjoy tea, a chat and experimentation. I’ll use different lighting setups to create variety in the shots. Photo shoots are personalised, including make-up artistry, hair styling and props (additional fees apply) etc. Portraits are ideal for those who enjoy posing and are quite relaxed, including individuals, couples, pets and children (ages 9 & up). Also this photo shoot is available for commissions/conceptual, fine art portraiture and dating profile photos.
I offer candid and fun family portraits, this captures lovely memories with a multi-light setup and a white backdrop.

Applying ChapStick a few days before your session is recommended as well moisturised skin is noticeable. Darker skin tones will greatly benefit from this as it helps with lighting.
Remember that during a session there is no rush, so don’t worry if they are a bit grumpy or if they aren’t behaving. Try to avoid asking them to smile or say cheese – genuine smiles come from children that are calm, relaxed and having fun! Please feel free to bring a favourite toy, a snack or drink, but avoid chocolate as it can be a bit messy.
Always wear something that you’re comfortable in and defines your style. If we’re shooting in the studio on grey or white backdrops, wearing colours tends to look better. On a black backdrop, darker colours help to emphasise your face more.
