Contemporary portrait session: Charlotte

Why a contemporary portrait session?

The starting point for contemporary portrait sessions is to celebrate you and anyone else you may include in the photoshoot. It’s about allowing yourself to put daily responsibilities on pause so that we can create an image that will last a lifetime.

How do you want to be photographed?

For Charlotte this was as simple as dressing in fabulous clothes and displaying her magnificent tattoos. It was to create images for her young son so that she existed in photographs he could look back on and see his fabulous mother.

All these set ups were created on location at my clients home. We used my portable backdrop in her conservatory for these images.
