Creative and Exciting Makeover Photography

We also had a big boost in our creative juices as we attended the Annual Photographers Convention in London last month organised by the SWPP The society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. There we saw the best of the new makeover and fashion style shooting trends, which we will be implementing throughout the coming months. We are also now offering a short extension to our makeover photography sessions for those that would like some outdoor, woodland setting, location shots added on to their shoot.

Makeover Photography offer

Lastly on the Makeover Photography special offer’s front we have decided to continue on with our special £49.95 offer on makeover shoots and makeover gift vouchers – The usual starting price for a makeover photography session with us is £85 this includes the professional makeover and hairstyling, the shoot and the first 12″ x 8″ folder picture,  these sessions proved very popular on the run up to Christmas, it’s true to say that most people  choose to have albums, CD’s, Our new Facebook and IPhone video slideshows, or a picture for the wall but others just have the makeover session and shoot and choose a few extra prints and thats fine too. We have even had as many as 5 teenagers here for a a real makeover party experience this year and all the parents were over the moon with thye results. Click for more details

Boudoir Noir Kidderminster, Stourport, Bewdley Worcestershire and West Midlands

Boudoir Noir Photography by Sammy Southall

Boudoir Photography and the Classic, Low Key, darker  looking ” Boudoir Noir” style derived from the 1940’s vintage and classic  film genre “Film Noir” is more popular than ever for us.  Mostly the term “Noir” implies shadowy low key contrasty lighting to emphasize shape and form, and we had quite a few clients recently who have asked specifically for this classic Boudoir style which is powerful as well as full of sultriness and glamour. Just over half of our clients are from Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley and Worcestershire generally but many come. from all across the West Midlands and Birmingham. Here’s a shot from a boudoir shoot booking  from a bride of ours from a couple of years ago Stacy who really wanted the darker, sexier Boudoir Noir feel and that’s exactly what we were able to give her as you can see below. Thanks for an amazing  shoot and your very kind comments about the results.
