Book a Session

Your Photography Experience - the process from start to finish

To book a session all you need to do is follow the link below to the photo style of your choice.  Be sure to include all your contact information where I will then be able to reach out to you via email or telephone to discuss your requirements in more detail. We will confirm the style direction you have chosen, what clothing, accessories, hair style and props best suits your dream shoot, so as to assure optimum results for an authentic Fine Art period portrait masterpiece!


A deposit of £50 is required to secure your appointment time. This deposit is non-refundable but fully transferable if you need to change your appointment time. The balance of your session fee is due on the day of your appointment. When booking a photography session you agree to abide by the terms and conditions stated on this website (see below). Please read through these before coming to your session, as they contain important information. 

When you arrive for your photography session I will go through your chosen portrait piece and I may suggest or contribute alternated props to create the best authentic photograph, with the best results. I will make a fun experience for you, your child or you family, creating a one-of-a-kind period portrait piece. I will quietly direct and encourage all the way through the session to get the very best outcome. The full photographic session and creative process times vary depending on the individual - they can last up to 30 minutes. 

Your images will be ready to view two to three weeks after your session date. Before you see your images I will carefully go through all the photographs taken in your session and select the very best ones for you to view. I will then spend several hours working on the best result, to ensure you see them at their finest. They will be cleaned up, colour balanced, and edited to reach the highest possible quality of authenticity of the photographic period you chose. They will also be adjusted to give that beautiful 'Fine Art' feel to them.

* A pre-session consultation via email or phone.

 * My background as a historical fashion curator to set the perfect scene, with correct lighting, background, props, hair and clothing, creating an authenticate Period Masterpiece.
