WOMEN PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
In my work as a professional women’s portrait photographer, my mission is to empower women while celebrating their femininity through my female portrait photography. Women are complex. We inhabit many roles: boss, employee, wife, lover, mother, daughter, sister, friend. However, often we find we get stuck in one role and ignore the other facets of ourselves.
I so often find that we women are not confident about having our portraits made. We tend to be self-critical and shy away from the camera. However, during my female portrait photo shoots, I don’t see the flaws women imagine. I simply see character, personality and uniqueness.
I love to help women explore and reveal the multiple sides of their lives and their character. And to capture the whole woman in a series of beautiful portraits which reveal the many sides of her.
Seeing a beautiful portrait of oneself is enlightening and uplifting. It leaves us feeling fabulous and confident. And this is why I created the Quintessential Woman Photoshoot “QW”.
The “QW” photoshoot celebrates the entire woman you are, as you are, right now. A wonderful, fun and memorable full-day experience. It’s like having your own fashion shoot with professional make up and hair and several changes of outfit. So, it’s time to release your inner supermodel on your very own cover shoot.
For your “QW” session, we will start by styling your outfits. Together we will choose clothes and accessories that will look great on camera. And to help you look your best, if you wish your QW portrait photoshoot can include a professional makeup artist and hair stylist. I work with a team who will help you look your best.
After your portrait shoot, I will conduct a ‘beauty edit’ – a gentle retouching to enhance your images. Then you will be able to choose your favourite portraits from an online gallery. The QW images will be created specially for display in beautiful prints, as wall art, and in albums to treasure forever.
And these gorgeous portraits are photographic art to enjoy on your walls and in professionally-designed, handmade albums. I work ONLY with the best suppliers in the world to give you the FINEST PRODUCTS AVAILABLE
If you would like to celebrate the woman or teen you are, as you are, right now with a Quintessential Woman/Teen portrait photoshoot or would like to gift a portrait photoshoot, I would love to hear from you.
I offer my QW portrait photoshoot at The West London Studio, W6 and on location anywhere in the world.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE A PROFESSIONAL WOMAN PORTRAIT PHOTOSHOOT?
For so many reasons! We women have so many roles: wife/partner, mother, daughter, sister, friend, boss, employee, lover. We are multifaceted and lead complex lives. Yet, so often we get stuck in one mode, eg. ‘mother’ and we fail to celebrate the other aspects of our personas. A female portrait photoshoot celebrates the real you, at your very best. Really looking amazing and showing yourself as you wish to be seen. Photos you will treasure when you are older and look back on your life.
Also women, especially mothers, are usually the curators of memories. And often they book professional portrait shoots of their children, but fail to get into the picture themselves. Many mothers want cute images of their children but will leave themselves out. Usually because they are prioritising the children or because they haven’t got time to prepare themselves. Which means they are often not a part of the story. A professional portrait shoot will help to redress that.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A PROFESSIONAL PORTRAIT PHOTOSHOOT?
No time like the present. Women often decide to wait until they ‘lose that final 5 pounds’ or grow their hair out or until their skin clears up a bit or they have a tan. To be honest, we rarely do lose that final 5 and we certainly don’t get younger. And meanwhile, time goes by and the portraits aren’t taken. None of us can see the future (this past year has surely taught us that). So Carpe Diem! Have a fantastic portrait photoshoot showing yourself as you are, right now.
