SERENA IS THE FAIRY GODMOTHER OF PHOTOGRAPHY. I WAS STUNNED AND DELIGHTED BY THE RESULTS & I CANNOT
RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH. A FABULOUS AND VERY EMPOWERING EXPERIENCE THAT EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
Your Quintessential Woman Shoot is a wonderful, fun and memorable experience. It celebrates the wonder of you, as you are right now and I will be with you every step of the way…from the planning, styling and preparation, the shoot itself through to image selection.
I want the women I photograph to feel comfortable and good about themselves. A beautiful image of you can be liberating and uplifting, leaving you feeling fabulous, confident and empowered. I will capture the best version of you. And don’t you love it when someone takes a great photograph of you? How you prepare and what you wear will affect how you feel and is key to a successful session. This is where fun begins!
You may choose to wear a selection of your favourite designer dresses or even some beautiful, sexy lingerie or even jeans and a shirt. Your partner’s shirt is a good sexy look! Select what makes you feel comfortable and fabulous. You may decide to indulge in a little fantasy: one of my clients had always dreamed of having a photograph taken riding a horse, wearing a stunning dress.
You, for example, may see yourself sipping cocktails, wearing a little black dress in the bar of a glamorous hotel or perhaps you will feel more comfortable doing your QW shoot in the comfort of my London Studio.…whatever takes your fancy! Anything is possible. I just want you to have the most fabulous experience and to feel a million dollars.
I highly recommend that you indulge in your own professional makeup artist and hair stylist. I work with a team who can help you look your best. Together we will choose outfits and accessories that will look great on camera and, if you are interested, I can also recommend one of my stylists to style you before your shoot.
Once you’re ready, the fun really starts as I photograph you, capturing directed but natural portraits of you whether we’re in the studio, at your home or on location. Explore the gallery and you’ll see stunning images of wonderful ladies, all of whom felt the same trepidation as you might before their shoot.
After your shoot, I will conduct a ‘beauty edit’ – a gentle retouching to enhance your images. You are then invited to my Studio for a relaxed viewing where you can choose your favourite images for use in beautiful, handmade albums and/or to display on your wall.
As women, we all operate under many labels: mother, sister, daughter, friend, our jobs, our looks, shape and age. At times we are not always confident about being photographed and we often tend to be self-critical and shy away from the camera. Yet these concerns are often our own invention. As a photographer, I just don’t see them – I simply see beauty, personality and uniqueness.
Your QW Shoot is a celebration of the woman you are, as you are, right now…if you are in the mood to celebrate or would like to gift a photo shoot to the special woman in your life, please contact me at the London Studio on +44 (0)20 8748 1988 to discuss further.
