We are family – Sister Sister Photoshoot

Its always important to listen to our clients as we want them to feel like themselves and comfortable throughout the shoot. The day started off with the two sisters going through their wardrobe with our team getting more of an idea for hair and make up. Sofia wanted to […]

Why I was inspired by 10 BRCA ladies to take this shot


Having earn’t my living photographing women for many years I jumped at the chance to take this shot of these 10 inspiring ladies as it was my chance to give back. All these women carry the faulty BRCA gene mutation which means that they all have an 80% chance of developing breast and ovarian cancer. Some of these ladies have had mastectomies and hysterectomies – some due to cancer and some for preventative reasons. We wanted to show that no matter what they have gone through they are all still beautiful and wanted to also raise awareness. Celebrities such as […]

My Fabulously Fun Photo Session


Laura’s Experience Like any modern woman, I’m a big fan of taking selfies. They give me the opportunity to show myself at the best angle, with the most flattering lighting and the occasional Instagram filter. Now I’m not talking about being vain or self-obsessed, but being creative and sharing photos with friends. As much as I enjoy photographing myself, the thought of being the other side of the camera has always made me feel excited and terrified in equal measure. So when I decided to have a portrait taken, I went to Charlotte from Steve Hampshire Photography. From the minute […]

The framed final product is like art as it’s printed on archival fine art quality paper. This is going to be […]
