“When I arrived the team were all welcoming and made me feel at ease straight away. I was photographed by the amazing Lucy. She is so lovely and made my experience the best. Seeing my photos and the wonderful job the team had done, it has certainly made me more confident and I can’t thank you all enough!”

Feel fantastic with a Boudoir Photoshoot

If you would like to experiment with a new look, or simply celebrate the person that you have become and document it in a portrait, why not consider having a boudoir photoshoot or a professional makeover and photoshoot

A professional photoshoot is the ideal way to keep a permanent memento of your landmark moments, special events, and those other times in your life when you look and feel good, and want to let the whole world know!

Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or someone special to a
feel-good makeover and photoshoot or a boudoir portrait session, read on for some suggestions.

Boudoir photography

Boudoir photography is an excellent way of capturing your femininity in image form, whilst still leaving plenty to the imagination. Boudoir photography is soft and shamelessly sensual without ever being explicit or overtly sexualised, and boudoir portraits can make a fabulous gift for your partner, or for yourself if you want to boost your self-esteem and learn to see yourself in your best light!

Makeover photoshoots

Makeover photoshoots are fun to take part in, and provide memories that will last forever! Whether you simply want to document your life’s journey with a timeless image of you looking your best or if it’s time for a change and you’re keen to try something new, a makeover photoshoot is the perfect way to do this. Landmark birthday? Just divorced and ready to celebrate? Celebrate it with a photoshoot!

Beauty is not something that can be defined by the narrow margins of age or size, and every woman has their own unique, natural beauty that is just waiting to be highlighted and brought to the fore. A special photoshoot just for you can help you to see yourself in a new light and help to boost your self-confidence – all things that every woman deserves.

A good photographer will bring out all of your best features, whilst ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout the shoot, happy about the day, and pleased with the images that you receive at the end of it!
