Well you’ve come to the right place! Here at the studio I shoot natural portfolios which is what agencies want, they want to see how naturally beautiful you are and what they have to work with! Let’s face it, we can all look a million dollars when we put hours of prep into our appearance however we’re not all model material without it! So prior to shooting we will have a style consultation which is free, we try and shoot 3-6 looks on the day to show how well you work in front of the camera. I will guide you through the shoot and make you feel comfortable so there is no need to worry or feel nervous. Portfolios include 5 retouched images with the option to purchase more. Please note, shots will not be airbrushed or body manipulated as need to be true representation for agency requirements. Here are some samples from portfolios shot recently :
