This amazing lady is one of our make-up artists, who has been working with us for the last 3-years. We have become really close and when I asked her if I could take her portrait, although she wouldn’t usually put her hand up to be photographed, she said yes. I had in my mind a very classy, elegant style of contemporary portraiture, which had a hint of the essence of boudoir without being revealing. I love the beauty of draping off the shoulder and elegant hands. This first image is one of my absolute favourites!

I was blown away by this one using the fan (pun intended!). It adds so much drama, I love it!

For these I wanted to focus on the neck and shoulders and give it a more japanese feel. I’m always looking for anything interesting to feature around the neck to make our portraits more intriguing.  

For more information about our contemporary portrait shoots please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
