About Your Day
We invite you to The Portrait Boutique for a luxury magazine-style portrait session and a day of pampering with professional hair, makeup & styling. Whether you are looking for stunning professional headshots, a lifestyle shoot for your unique brand, an empowering lingerie boudoir session or simply want to enjoy this experience for yourself or with a loved one whilst gaining a confidence boost, our all-female team are fully equipped to make your dream shoot come true.
Prior to your photoshoot you will have an over-the-phone pre-shoot styling consultation with our lovely studio manager Nicola, where you’ll have the chance to get excited and talk about how exactly you’d like to be photographed. As you’ll have the opportunity to achieve multiple different looks during your photoshoot we’ll discuss your wardrobe in detail and figure out the style you’re going for, whether you’re doing this for a special occasion, if you’ll be sharing the experience with anyone, and everything you need to know to fully prepare yourself and our team for your day with us.
Upon arrival on the day of your shoot day you will be warmly greeted by a member of our team who will get you settled and give you a little alone time to relax and have a coffee or drink of your choice before going into approximately one hour of hair & makeup with our fabulous professional make-up artist.. let the pampering begin! Now that you’re looking and feeling fabulous, we will go through your clothing, props & accessories, during which time you’ll have access to our bespoke wardrobe and we can decide on your final looks.. now let the fun begin!
During your shoot we will guide you into flattering poses that will make you feel and look amazing. Don’t worry! You won’t have to think about what to do or how to stand, your welcoming female photographer will fully direct you throughout and make sure you’re feeling relaxed and at ease, this will insure she will capture you at your absolute best. Depending on the type of shoot you’re going for, this will take 1-2 hours.
(Remember to book an evening out after your photoshoot as you’ll look and feel incredible!)
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your shoot you’ll be invited back in for your portrait reveal & ordering session* where you’ll be presented with the best thirty expertly edited and printed portraits from your shoot. Get ready to feel awe-inspired the moment you see yourself on the wall, there may be tears! (Don’t worry- we have tissues at the ready) and be prepared to see yourself in a whole new light, the way you always wished others would see you.. now you can see it, just for yourself. What you buy is entirely up to you, we have a stunning range of display options available to suit any home and be assured you won’t be getting a hard sell. Please allow one hour for this appointment.
*Your portrait reveal session may differ depending if you are opting for a boudoir or personal branding session, this may include a same-day viewing or private access to an online gallery.
