WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU ? …
I can take photos of you that you will love for forever.
Photographing the happiness, fun and magic of the moment wherever you are, whoever you are with, whatever the occasion. Photos sparkling with pure YOU – the ‘you’ that we all see, the real fabulous you.
What sort of session do you dream of ? You by yourself portrait style, you and your family in a lifestyle session, you and your loved one on a couple shoot, you ready to take on the world with a headshot for your brilliant new business, or even better YOU just because you want to remember ‘now’ for FOREVER.
Based near the beautiful old town of Annecy, in the French Alps, I create contemporary, stylish, timeless, lifestyle and wedding photography in fabulous venues across France and beyond. Call me now to set up your photo session.
Grab a coffee and have a look through the posts below along with the others on the blog.
I hope you’ll find lots and lots of ideas tips for your own photo session.
YOU ARE GORGEOUS – don’t forget it!

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT ?
Yay, great news you’re ready to book. Here’s what happens once you’ve filled in the “Contact” form. I’ll send you a PDF brochure to help you with the next steps in the process. There are also loads of photos to spark ideas and show you examples of previous client sessions and of course there is pricing and product information.
Then I’ll get in touch so that we can fix up a time for a consultation. That’s where you get to tell me all about what you have in mind for your photography shoot, and we start to work out how we can make that happen. The meeting can be on skype or zoom, or on the phone or if you live near Annecy why not over a coffee.
You’ll also receive a gorgeous Welcome PDF full of ideas and tips to help you to prepare for your session, for example there’s advice about what to wear, which sort of places work best, what time to organise the shoot light wise. Along with that is extra information about how everything works and more details on the beautiful product range available to you.
Then we fix a date and get started. Yippeee !
2) PHOTO SESSION TIME !
This is the fun bit – the session itself. Whether it is a lifestyle shoot, a magazine style portrait experience or a fabulous wedding day it’ll be a great experience – all the preparation we have done together beforehand means you can just relax enjoy this bit and let yourself ‘be’ !
3) VIEWING AND ORDERING
Not long after the session we’ll arrange a time for you to discover your beautiful gallery of photos. You choose which photos you would like for which products – an album, a portfolio box, a beautiful frame – and your choices are off to print!… It usually takes around 4-6 weeks from confirmation of your choices to receive your gorgeous memories back safely, printed and ready to be collected and treasured by you for forever.
This is just a very quick summary – each session is different so don’t worry we can go through how to plan your dream photo session in detail during your consultation call.
Hello, I’m Gill and I’m really looking forward to working with you.
I’ve been making people smile and taking photos of them for over 15 years now, 10+ years professionally and I love it. My aim is that, whether it is a portrait shoot, a family photo session or your wedding day, when we work together you can just relax and enjoy the day not worrying for a minute about what I’m getting up to with my camera (even if I’m lying on the floor or sitting on the front of a boat! – for proof see the boat photo at the top of the page – the groom was having great fun seeing if I could hang on and photograph them at the same time !))
I’m always open to new concepts and ideas (the most original so far is a couple session in a car breakers yard) so if you like bright, colourful and emotion filled photos – I would LOVE to hear from you.
There’s more about me and what I love over on the About page if you want to know more – but I reckon that’s probably enough for the home page !
Hope to meet you soon!
We don’t know how to pose for pictures, will you help us?
100% yes – my job and my skill is to make you feel at ease so that you and everyone else involved will just forget the camera ! That means that you will get beautiful photos of you just being you – relaxed, laughing, happy, … that is very important to me. (cont’d)
Do you print the images for portfolio boxes, albums or frames?
Definitely. For me my job as your photographer isn’t finished until you have a (or hopefully several) gorgeous professionally printed images in your hands … and IMPORTANTLY you will receive a digital copy ( hi resolution jpeg) of every image that you choose as a finished printed image so that you can store them away safely and even share them with your family and friends if you choose to. (cont’d)
How do I book a session?
That’s fantastic news – thank you – I’m thrilled you want to work with me. First of all, give me a call or send me a mail and we’ll arrange a meeting so that you can tell me all about your needs, and of course check that I’m still available. Then if you are happy you would like to go ahead I will explain the reservation process to you. Please note that until the reservation fee is paid the date is NOT reserved.
Are you bilingual?
Yes I am – I’m English but I have been based here in France for over 25 years (that sounds like ever such a long time !). I speak French fluently and can write it too but I freely admit I prefer writing in English given half a chance (French grammar is so complicated I’m forever forgetting ‘e’s or ‘é’s !)!
