Hello Gill, thank you very much for your wonderful photos..they were a great success….Thank you very much!!! I must tell you that I’ve never been so appreciated by my FB friends
Welcome to a page of fabulousness ! This is page is all about FABULOUS YOU ! Yes you !
When was the last time you had your photograph taken professionally ? If you are anything like me you are usually in charge of the camera and apart from the odd selfie or snap from a wonderful holiday, or brilliant evening out you don’t have many to remind you how gorgeous you are.
These stunning women have all treated themselves to a photo shoot where they felt utterly amazing and I photographed it so they could keep the pictures for ever. Our friends, family and loved ones are forever telling us that we are beautiful but we don’t always believe them. We all have those down days – over tired, over worked when we look in the mirror and see someone tired looking back – how about treating yourself to a shoot so you will always have a reminder of the real you !
This page contains a selection of my very favourite photos of some of the fabulous women that I have worked with over the years. This is important, only ONE of these women in the whole selection is a pro model – which one ?!! They are from all walks of life – a nurse, a student, a photographer, a marketing exec. All fabulous, all you!
Before you say “oh well, I could never look like that “, think again. You could and you do … remember these are photos taken in beautiful light, on days when you are treating yourself to feel amazing.
Just below the portfolio you can find out all about how a lifestyle shoot works and what beautiful products are on offer.
Just finished looking at them! You are such a great photographer Gill! I’m totally in love with them! Thank you again for all! You are fantastic, hope to see you again one day!
My job is to show you what we all see when we look at you … Remember these are not taken with flash after 3 hours celebrating a birthday in a dark restaurant on a brilliant night out with friends, or after a glorious day in the full sun on the beach, …
We will use the right light, the right poses, the right sound track (remember to tell me what you like !) and make sure you enjoy the experience – all that means the photos are you relaxed and happy. You are gorgeous, let me help remind you.
Contact me here and together we will plan your dream portrait session. I’ll send you information and all sorts of tips and advice to help you prepare. We’ll set up a skype meeting so you can “meet” me and ask me any questions you may have.
To keep things really simple and straightforward the price for a Portrait Session is broken down into two parts.
Part One is the session fee, which covers the shoot itself. Next Part Two covers the different products available to present your beautiful memories – albums, frames, portfolio box. That way you are free to buy what you love. Simple.
Contact me and together we will work to plan your dream session. I’ll send you information and send you a beautiful PDF with advice about what to wear, etc. There will also be info about what happens before, during and after the shoot. Then we’ll set up a skype meeting so you can tell me what you have planned and see what we can make happen. You can “meet” me to see if we ‘fit’ and you’d like me to photograph you, and of course go through any questions you may have.
Un grand merci à toi….
Tu arrives à ressortir le meilleur de chacun de nous tant physiquement qu’ émotionnellement. Tes photos sont vivantes et nous racontent des histoires notre histoire et c’est juste génial.
Pour les personnes qui doutent d’elles mêmes je pense qu’une séance photo avec toi peut être une très bonne thérapie pour leur redonner confiance et avec toi tout paraît simple et ça c’est chouette.
Tu es, à ta façon, magicienne ou peut être notre bonne fée !A très bientôt
This fee covers :
Note : Digital Images and final products are NOT included in the session fee and need to be purchased separately.
The second part is entirely up to you because you only buy what you love, simple as that.
After the photoshoot you will have access to a beautiful online gallery so you can make your choices. It is my job is to supply you with a gorgeous selection of images, BUT remember there is no pressure from me because you aren’t contracted into buying an album, or a frame or anything at all. You could choose to have a single large framed image, or maybe a portfolio box of ten gorgeous mounted photos, or why not a stunning album of 60 images to treasure forever …. or if you don’t like any of the final photos (I really hope that isn’t the case) you can just walk away.
There are lots of different ways to present your favourite images from your shoot. The most popular product is an image folio box with 10 mounted photos to display around your home, or a stunning album printed on layflat photographic paper. But perhaps you would prefer framed images. Most of my clients allow for between 900-2500€ for a collection of their favourite images to treasure and display.
Remember you buy what you love and there is no minimum spend or package – it’s simple you choose the images you like and the format you would like them in from the wide range of products available.
Along with the printed product you will receive the high resolution digital (jpeg) version of every image ordered.
I work with fabulous suppliers, all of them specialists in their fields. This means that your photographs are shown off to their very best whether it be in a gorgeous portrait album, a stylish portfolio box or contemporary frames. Have a look at the photos below to see each style of product in detail. I’m sure you will love them.
Not quite sure if you want a beautiful album or stylish wall art ? Here is a gorgeous solution for you – The Image Portfolio Box. It allows you to keep the prints together in one place or display them individually around your home, changing your display as the mood takes you. This simply beautiful image portfolio box contains 10 of your favourite photos printed on lustre paper. The 10”x8” prints are presented in classic white or black bevel cut mounts. Additional mounts are available.
Remember that every image in the portfolio box is also supplied as a high resolution digital file for you to keep.
There are a huge range of frames available for your walls – different styles, colours and sizes so whether your home is a sleek modern loft or a cosy little country cottage there will be something to suit you.
All the frames are made from premium quality sustainable timber and the mounts are precision cut. The prints are supplied on photographic lustre finish paper that has a slightly stippled surface to give it texture. Protected behind ultra-clear anti-reflective acrylic the frames are both lighter and safer than more traditional fragile glass options.
Remember that every image in a frame is also supplied as a high resolution digital file for you to keep.
These beautiful lay flat albums are perhaps THE perfect way to keep your precious memories of a wonderful moment with your family. Printed by professionals and hand bound by skilled bookmakers these albums provide a fabulous finished product that you will treasure for years to come.
Finished off with a matt cover featuring your favourite photo from the session the albums are A4 format (approx 30x21cm). They are printed on satin finish photographic paper which has a cardboard base to make the pages thick and resistant. If you are looking for a present idea smaller versions which are perfect as a gift for grandparents, are available as an extra with a main album.
Remember that every image in the album is also supplied as a high resolution digital file for you to keep.
Fantastic news, I look forward to hearing from you. Email me and we can arrange a meeting soon, either face to face or via Facetime or Skype whatever suits you best. We can go through any questions you may have, I’m sure you have loads.
We’ll work together over the weeks leading up to your shoot and I’ll send all sorts of things that will help the photography side of session. There will be lots of information about what clothes to bring along, how to do your make up, when to have hair and nails done ….. Ooooo and as you will be looking so gorgeous why not plan a fab night out for afterwards !
PS : To be honest, like most people I am waaaaaay happier behind the camera than in front of it where I’m all self conscious and shy and downright uncomfortable. So if you are sitting there thinking “hmmmmm I’m still not sure about a photo shoot Gill, I hate having my photo taken”, believe me I feel your pain, I know that feeling ! I promise I will make it as easy and fun as possible !
