What is a styled shoot?

I’m a huge fan of styled shoots.  I love the creativity that goes into a shoot where every single detail is considered from the style of clothes, hair, make-up and jewellery right through to the exact location for taking the photographs.  Very little is left to chance and that is exactly how I like it.

Digital photography is available to everyone now, whether you snap away on your phone or have a compact camera or maybe something a little more fancy.  Your memories can be captured instantly and with this in mind I really have no need to take the photographs that you can take yourself, I want to offer you something different and special.

A styled shoot is exactly what its name implies.  It is a photography shoot that is styled with a theme.  Prior to the shoot time is spent planning and putting together a theme.  Perhaps a certain look, props, details, outfits etc.  Styled shoots don’t have any particular rules, other than they should be styled in some way so it’s a great way to let your creative juices flow.

I’ve got some gorgeous images due to be published soon titled ‘down the rabbit hole’.  A 1920s inspired shoot with a rabbit mask.  Every single detail sourced and put together by myself.  I usually create around 25 images from a styled shoot.  Each one worthy of framing and gracing a wall in its own right, but equally looking great clustered together to tell a story.

Styled shoots really allow me to invest time into you, my client, and produce something completely personal and unique. I take the time to find out what you like and discuss ideas with you and this really makes the shoot fun too! As an artist there is nothing I like more than taking an idea, designing and then creating. Styled shoots can be different to each client and this is really great for me too as I really enjoy the differing challenges.

I’m currently offering some gypsy styled mini sessions to give new clients a chance to try a styled shoot. The gypsy set is suited to girls, but I do have plans for more across the year. I am currently designing a nautical set for use at the beach.More examples of styled shoots can be found under ‘styled shoots’ in the categories section of the blog.

Face Painting

Face painting is a great way to dress up without changing your clothes!

I am available for children’s face painting parties, birthday parties, special events or fetes. I can even provide face painting for adults too for occasions such as fancy dress or Halloween.

I can travel to most places in Bournemouth, Poole or Dorset and can cater for small or large parties. I use the Snazaroo range of face paints which are suitable for all skin types.  All designs can be tailored to your party/event and I have public liability insurance.

Please use the contact form to check my availability x

Gypsy styled shoot mini sessions

I’m offering a few gypsy styled photo shoot mini sessions over the next few weeks in Bournemouth.  These sessions give you the chance to try a creative shoot with dressing up, which young girls absolutely love.

The shoot is based in a woodland setting with a pretty wigwam and I will spend 20 minutes creating some original images for you to frame in your home or use as gifts for family and friends.  There are props available to use and all you need to do is decide what to wear.  A simple dress is great, or maybe a gypsy style skirt and top.  The choice is yours and all you need to complete that boho princess look.

Please use the contact form if you have any questions or would like to make a booking.  To secure your session you need to complete a booking form and make full payment.
