Are you an all-female team?
We absolutely are.
Very rarely, my 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.
How do your clients know how to pose? They look like models!
Thankyou so much! I work very hard to ensure that every portraits has a touch of finesse.
I pose you down to your little finger, I even pose your hair!
I know how stupidly awkward I suddenly become when a camera is pointed at me. “What should I do with my hands”?!
When should I book my session?
Don’t wait, that’s my advice.
There may never be a tomorrow and waiting to shift a little weight or waiting to feel confident, may never happen.
Did you know, I’m 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 me.
I’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.
We often book this at your design consultation so you know when this will be and can plan accordingly!
I don’t save unordered portraits, so you are strongly advised to book this at the best time for you.
Must I choose between Beauty and Boudoir and Eternal Angel? Can I have both in one shoot?
This is what the design consultation is all about! The team really want to know what’s important to you, what you need most.
I can combine Beauty & Boudoir… it can be empowering, confidence boosting boudoir with a dash of legacy beauty portrait, or the other way around.
Or you can focus on just one.
However, ‘Eternal Angel’ is a standalone, dedicated shoot.
I don’t mind what you design with me, this is all about you.
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
I welcome everyone into the studio.
I’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!
Do I have to go nude?
Well, I’d only ever create ‘classy’ nude with a client. Artistic studies and implied nude.
It’s rarely ever at the start of a shoot, we usually work up to it together, depending on how you feel.
Be assured, it’s entirely up to you!
What can I wear?
The team will go through all of this with you at your consultation, lots of advice is given!
You can go for full lingerie sets, to snuggly jumpers, anything goes.
I have A LOT of gorgeous props and accessories, so the only thing I insist on you investing in, is your lingerie, if that’s part of your shoot. It needs to be a fabulous fit.
‘Eternal Angel’ is a little less about the outfits and props… it’s more about YOU and those incredible wings!
How can I prepare?
The team will send you a handy Preparation Guide that literally maps out all the bits you need to consider on the run up to your big day.
We truly do hold your hand every step of the way!
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 I have a closed room on your shoot day.
I 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.
I 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?
I create your portraits beautifully ‘in camera’ with gorgeous posing and flattering lighting (I wish a softbox could follow me around all day!)
Rachel can remove scars/blemishes and most tattoos on request, just ask.
