Transform the way you see yourself with a confidence boosting photo shoot.

Portrait Sessions at The Make-up & Photography Studio, Retford.

Your private portrait session is more than a photo shoot, it is a confidence boosting transformation! We will create gorgeous fashion-inspired images that capture you looking more beautiful than ever. 

Most of my clients aren't models, they are mums, office workers, waitresses, nurses, small business owners... women who "always wanted to" but they "never thought they could". You'll be guided throughout the photo shoot how to pose for the camera, sculpt your body and will feel like a star.

After the photo shoot at our intimate studio, your portraits will be carefully retouched and you will be invited back to the studio to choose your favourites. You can choose from timeless wall art and gorgeous portrait collections. Prices start from £40. There is absolutely no obligation to purchase anything at the reveal - We don't believe in hard selling! That being said our aim is to take portraits you love so you want to buy them all!
