Do you take group bookings

We are a small boutique studio focused on premium experience for each one of our clients and that is why we take bookings for up to 3 people at a time. This ensures each of one you receives high level of service we strive to provide. 

Please note: we require £79 for each additional person to cover the makeup & hair.

How long does the makeover and photoshoot last

I recommend that you allow up to 2 hrs for the hair & makeup and up to 2 – 2.5 hours for the photoshoot. Additional people – please allow more time.

I have no experience in photoshoot. Will somebody show me what to do?

YES! You will be fully guided during the shoot in my portrait studio in Worcester. I will pose you to the last lash. Normally I demonstrate the pose myself first, in some cases I may also show you some visuals on my phone.

You do not need any experience at all to create beautiful images with me.

Do you retouch the images

Yes, I do airbrush the images. My professional photography started from beauty and fashion hence I have been trained in various retouching techniques used in the fashion photography around the world. 
I use a number of tools in Photoshop plus 3rd party plugins to remove or minimise any imperfections, reduce the fine lines, even out the skin tone, and help with any wardrobe imperfections.

How far in advance do I need to book

Your booking should be made at least 3 weeks in advance to allow a thorough preparation to your shoot however I’m usually booked fully 6 – 8 weeks in advance. This means having a pre-session consultations as well as following the beauty prep guideline you receive when making your booking. If you are considering a wall art, please allow extra 4 weeks for the production and shipment of your art work. A magazine style portrait or boudoir session is often once in a lifetime experience. We want to ensure your portrait investment is one of a kind and the best it can be.

What if I need to reschedule or cancel my session

We do allow a one time re-scheduling minimum 7 days prior to your session. You can cancel your session if you wish to do so but your session fee will not be refunded.

How long will it take to complete my order

Any digital images will be released on the the of order. A folio box can be collected or delivered within 4 days from your reveal session. Any additional prints or boxes may take up to 2 weeks. Wall art will take up to 4 weeks for production and delivery.

What if I don’t like my images

I pride myself in delivering beautiful styled portraits of everyday women in my Worcestershire studio but if for whatever reason you do not like any of the images, I will gladly re-take your portraits without the session fee within 30 days from the reveal appointment. This is my 100% satisfaction guarantee. 

Of course the art work I create is considered a custom product which cannot be re-sold. Due to the nature of my products, all sales are final.

Will my photos be made public

No, they will be kept private if you do not sign the release. Of course I would love to share your beautiful photos in my portfolio to help my business grow but I will respect your wish if you’d rather kept them just to yourself. 

Do I need to show a proof of COVID-19 vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test?

No, I do not require to see your medical history or undertaking any medical procedures in order to carry out your portrait session or in person viewing session. If you do feel unwell, please inform me as soon as possible, so we can reschedule.
