For fun, relaxed portrait photography

Showing you at your best!

I'm willing to bet that you hate having your photograph taken (I know I do), but a blurred mobile phone snap on a night out or one where you've had little time to compose yourself rarely brings out the best in any of us.

The best photographs are taken when the sitter is comfortable and at ease.

This is why my portrait photography sessions are designed to be fun and can take place either in your home or out on location - such as a local park or woodland - wherever you feel the most relaxed. What's more, with my knowledge of lighting, camera angles and post image editing and retouching I have many tricks up my sleeve to ensure that the end results are amazing!

If you require more studio-like images, maybe for a portfolio, I have backdrop and lighting equipment which can be set up at your home*.

Within 2-3 days all the images from your photo shoot will be available online where you can view, select and purchase your favourite images as digital files - giving you complete flexibility to print off, share online and enjoy them on all your mobile devices - as well as physical prints or as a printed book.

You are not obliged to purchase any files or physical prints.

I schedule my photo shoots in such a way that you will never be hurried to make way for another booking - if additional time is required to 'get the shot' this isn't a problem.

(*Please note that a minimum working area of 8/10ft x 3ft is needed if you are wanting full-length images; for head-only shots the space can be smaller and furniture may not pose a problem. Week-day photo shoots can also be arranged at my home if you have no suitable space.)

Carol instantly made me feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera... The end result was some great shots that are of such high quality that I cannot wait to use them to promote my music business.

From the moment we arrived Carol was so warm and welcoming. She immediately put the girls at ease and after a 6hr journey with a full show ahead of us that was exactly what we needed...Will be back for the next promo shots for sure!

Kim Neaves, Producer, Women in Rock

Carol made me feel very comfortable and at ease. The fact that she came to my house to do the photoshoot helped. The photos were amazing...

In the industry, photoshoots are generally priced very low - sometimes at a loss for the photographer - in order to entice you in.

The real profits for a photographer are from 'hard' selling you expensive prints and digital files once you have seen the photographs and fallen in love with them.

I've even seen business guides that say printing the best images and then tearing a rejected photo up in front of the horrified customer is a great way to pressure them into purchasing the rest to save them from the same fate!

I do not work that way.

Each standard photoshoot includes physical and digital prints which you select from your online gallery without any of the pressure to pay anything more.

My portrait photography packages also solve the usual problems such as the ability to travel to a studio, rigid timeslots and very limited editing/retouching. I travel to you and if a timeslot runs over a little so that we get that perfect shot that isn't a problem. Editing and retouching is also tailored to you and can be as little or as much as you wish.
