Studio Portraits 

Studio Portraits







Studio portraits are something I really enjoy shooting.   My Modern Portrait sessions, focus attention on growth and individual beauty.  We are all subject to the twists and turns of life.  Usually, after we have achieved something or have overcome an unexpected challenge, we uncover hidden strengths or undefined talents – that we never knew we had.  That discovery can do wonders for our self-esteem, give us a renewed sense of who we are and an acknowledgment of what we are capable of.  

Of course time keeps moving forward and we slowly change as we move with it.  I often think of images caught in portraits as visual milestones on our personal voyage to maturity.  

I shoot these sessions out of my studio in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.  However, it is possible to reserve an environmental shoot at a location special to you. 

We often come across better on camera when we are relaxed, so I aim to make the shoots as fun as possible, while at the same time ensuring the images you receive are beautiful and simple. 

A sitting fee of £195.00 covers the shoot itself, up to 5 wardrobe changes, and either three 7×10 matted prints and their corresponding Jpegs or five edited Jpegs.  Beautiful minimalist leather Graphistudio portfolios feature, as well as Leather Reveal boxes for matted prints and acrylic wall art.  Modern legacy products that you will love!

Prints are available in either glossy HD with vibrant colours, or deep touch matte HD, a silky paper with a wonderful feel and appearance.  These are superior quality prints due to them capturing the full Adobe RGB colour space.  The longevity of these prints are certified at 300 years by the JEITA institute.   

All prints are framed in an elegant pure cotton mat, in black or white.  This means your prints will stand out with an artistic flair, exuding quality and sophistication with every image.

The Treasure Collection has options ranging from 5 to 30 matted prints, encased in a storytelling timeless, real Italian leather folio box.  This can be in black or white and detailed with a personal engraving.  



The Cherish Collection contains three options of 5,10 or 20 matted prints in a real Italian leather reveal box.  This has a transparent plexiglass window that allows the top print to be “revealed”.  At any given moment the image may be changed to another in the box.  A great option for keeping all of your favourite prints from your shoot and displaying them on a shelf or bookcase in your home.
