Are you an all-female team?
We absolutely are.
Very rarely, Johanna’s husband visits on ‘non shoot’ days as our maintenance guy (diet coke break?)
Other than that we’re all girls together, all carefully handpicked – the best in the industry.
Will you share my images?
ONLY with your written/signed permission.
We are very used to being commissioned by professionals whose portraits must never be seen in the public domain.
Your portraits are even saved on a locked away, password protected server (not cloud) under a number, not your name.
How do your clients know how to pose? They look like models!
Thankyou so much! We work very hard to ensure that every portraits has a touch of finesse.
We will pose you down to your little finger, even pose your hair!
We know how stupidly awkward you suddenly becomes when a camera is pointed at you. “What should I do with my hands”?!
When should I book my session?
Don’t wait, that’s our advice.
As it is, we are often fully booked 6-8 weeks in advance, with a waiting list for sooner shoots!
There may never be a tomorrow and waiting to shift a little weight or waiting to feel confident, may never happen.
Did you know, we’re good for a stone just in posing? Not that it should matter, but it may be reassuring to know that.
Confidence? That comes during and after your journey with us.
We’ve got you!
How will I select my chosen collection?
You are invited back to your Reveal Session a minimum of 7 days after your big shoot day.
This is always ‘in house’ with us.
We often book this at your design consultation so you know when this will be and can plan accordingly!
We don’t save unordered portraits, so you are strongly advised to book this at the best time for you.
‘Starting from’ portrait costs can be found here, full details are given at your Design Consultation!
Can I choose between Beauty and Boudoir and Eternal Angel? Can I have them all in one shoot?
‘Eternal Angel’ is a standalone, dedicated shoot.
We intend to create a ‘high impact’ piece in every portrait we create.
This is a slow and considered, creative shoot.
You bring your confidence and sass to this!
If you’re looking for the ultimate confidence boost, we recommend our other shoots and that you join us for an ‘Eternal Angel’ shoot next time.
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
We welcome everyone into the studio.
We’ve helped many members of the LGBTQ+ community explore and create the most incredible and emotional portraits.
You can be assured of a non-judgmental and safe space, with a dash of excitement!
What can I wear?
We will go through all of this with you at your consultation, lots of advice is given!
Colour palette is SUPER important in this shoot.
You can wear anything from your birthday suit to an evening gown!
The only thing we insist on you investing in, is your main outfits as they need to be a fabulous fit.
Can I bring a friend?
You are welcome to bring whoever you love most to your Design Consultation or Reveal Session.
Your shoot is a very private affair, so we have a closed room on your shoot day.
We don’t have the facility for anyone to wait, however the pub opposite is fabulous!
How much retouching do you do?
As much as you’d like really.
We don’t change you into someone else though.
Your hair and makeup artist will compliment your look in a polished way, what’s not to love about that?
We create your portraits beautifully ‘in camera’ with gorgeous posing and flattering lighting (we wish a softbox could follow us around all day!) then they receive a final polish in post-processing.
Rachel can remove scars/blemishes and most tattoos on request, just ask.
I’m travelling across the country to shoot with you, where can I stay locally?
We are lucky to have some very lovely hotels close by and Airbnb. Our area is a popular holiday destination!
Details can be provided on request.
