Childhood, graduation, marriage: those are pretty much the only times some people celebrate with professional photos. We tell ourselves we don't need them, that we need to lose 10 pounds first, that we're too old, that we only need the kid's photos.
Nowadays most of our photos are taken via smart phones, but if you've always hated the way you look when someone takes your photo, or if you're not satisfied with that gym selfie that looks just like the last one you took, you may be looking for something that captures you the way you really want to be seen.
What if I could show you the person who transcends those limits, the person other people don't see? Maybe even the one you've forgotten?
What if I could show you an image which captures your unique and authentic self?
I invite you to be seen in photos that capture your individual light in the world, that celebrate your full and glorious essence, and provide create enduring images that will become a timeless legacy and change the way you see yourself.
Once you’ve booked your photography session, the process begins with a consultation about your desires for the shoot. We discuss your wardrobe, the location, and any questions you may have. Designing your perfect shoot could cover anything from a dark and moody look, to airy and ethereal, to contemporary business branding. With the option to change wardrobe, many people take the opportunity to get a mixture of glamorous portraits as well as professional shots for social media. Whatever you choose, we’ll be capturing your very essence on camera.
On the day of the shoot you can either organize your own hair and make-up or be styled by me. We’ll go to our chosen locations and start making some magical photos of you. If you’re nervous about posing, don’t worry, this is one of my superpowers, so rest assured I will guide you in looking confident and radiant.
After I’ve added my own special magic to your images we’ll meet for a reveal session during which you’ll be able to view and choose your favourites. What you decide to buy is entirely up to you: some people spend €300 while others may spend €3000. À la carte images start at €275 and folio collections begin at €1200. However many images you choose is entirely up to you – no hard sell – but you’ll have plenty of amazing images to choose from!
Being photographed professionally can be a transformative experience, a massive confidence-boost and a ton of fun. Photographs are precious memories and a legacy for you, your friends and your family.
So tell me: How do you want to be photographed?
