How would you like to be photographed as a woman?
Why have a women’s session?
Life’s chapters whizz by in a blur, shaping and defining us – but while women take care to record the milestone’s of loved-ones, we often overlook our own journey.
A women’s session is the chance to step off the treadmill and celebrate a moment in time – your body, your attitude, your style. Your shoot will be as unique as you are, an opportunity to capture your own brand of femininity and the essence of you at your best and most confident.
This can be an occasion to record the elegance of a favourite
evening dress, capture the beauty of bridal wear, others opt for a boudoir shoot in underwear or a suggestion of nudity. Whether you prefer a head-and-shoulders shot to full length, all-out glamour or a natural charm – your shoot is built around you.
There is always a reason to celebrate the female form: pregnancy, motherhood, your wedding (present to the groom), a girly get together, hen do, a special birthday or ‘reclaiming’ your body. Women’s sessions are relaxed and a chance to be completely at ease with yourself. The resulting images are a record of a instance in time and a memory to treasure. A piece of art to look back on in years to come.
Women’s session don’t have to be all about extremely ornate lingerie. The aim of these session is essentially to capture to beautiful artwork. What you choose to wear is entirely up to you and should be personal to you as well. Whilst many women’s shoots concentrate on solely on boudoir our sessions are very much more personal, about you as a woman. This may mean capturing you in your favourite evening dress, popping your wedding dress back on, a simple sloppy jumper or maybe you’re a casual jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.
You may have a specific style that reflects your personality. Maybe you’re a sixties girl at heart, a ballet dancer, maybe you’re into yoga or kickboxing! Whatever your ‘thing’ is let’s bring it into your shoot so we can create something truly personal to you to look back on in years to come. You can get a feel for some of the shoots we have done in the past on the gallery here. If you have an idea for your shoot I’d love to have a chat to create something really unique for you.
The location of your shoot will depend on the mood you wish to create with your imagery. You may wish to shoot in familiar surroundings of your own home. Alternatively you may wish to switch off from the everyday and indulge in the luxury feeling of a hotel room or other venue.
Choose your location depending on the ambiance or background you would like for your imagery. Use your imagination to make your artwork unique to you. If you are after something simple that is just about you and not so much about background then we can arrange studio space for you (additional charges may apply). If you are struggling to find a location then please do get in touch as we have a few favourite spots that we can recommend for different sorts of shoots depending on availability. Those looking for a hen day may consider asking their wedding venue about the potential to use it for a day.
