The session can take place at your home or an agreed outdoor location.
Saturday mornings: £250*
*The fee covers my time, guidance and creativity on the day. In addition to the session fee, there is a minimum spend required on digital images and/or fine art products. Please contact me for further details on my collections.
Before your session, we’ll discuss the creative tone, styling, and what you’re hoping to get out of the session.
I offer a selection of handmade high quality fine art from the best UK suppliers of fine art products, including:
- Wall art
- Fine art prints
We’ll work together to create timeless, soulful art and memories that will resonate with you for a lifetime.
After your session
Approximately one week after the session, you’ll have an opportunity to view your handcrafted portraits via a private online gallery. As soon as your images are ready, I’ll contact you to find out when is best to set your gallery to go live.
You will have seen samples of my artwork, fine art prints and albums at your session, so when you receive your gallery you will have an idea of which prints/albums resonate with you the most. It’s important to get this bit right so I’m more than happy to guide you through the process of choosing beautiful artwork that you’ll love.
3 steps to choosing the right wall art for your home
Much like choosing artwork for your home, choosing portraits or wall art pieces can feel a little bewildering. It needn’t be. I recommend a really simple 3 step approach when it come to choosing portraits for your walls (you can use this for buying original art too):
1. Trust your instincts – your choice of portrait will help to define the personality of your space
At the risk of sounding cheesy, the truth is you have to choose what you love. If it’s beautiful to you, listen to that. If it makes your heart move, then listen to that feeling right there. Ask yourself – what is it about portraits and artwork that you love most? For me, I love emotion, shadow and light. I want to feel emotion jumping out of the print when I look at it. When you choose something with soul, then you’ll always appreciate what it gives you. Trust your instincts. You can do this. That’s essentially how we choose art that works for us.
2. Which walls do you have available?
Take a walk around your home and take pictures of the spaces you’d like to place something. If you’d like to move something that’s existing, take a photo of that wall too. How does the light fall on these walls too? Food for thought here. I can use your pictures to help plan a layout for you.
3. Size and scale
Choosing art or portraits that are too small for a wall is a common mistake. But to be honest there is no right or wrong answer here. Many say it should fill 60-70% of your wall, and yes I think going big works extremely well – but some negative space is also good too. Sometimes a well placed combination of prints, a gallery wall, works better than one large print. They can be varying sizes or uniform. Again, just ask and I’ll help plan a layout for you.
That’s really it, remember whatever you choose will grow in meaning and value with you and your family. You can always relocate and swap things around with time and change in decor. Don’t ever feel like you to have to colour match everything either. You can be bold, or tonal. There is no exact science to this so don’t overthink this aspect too much.
Wall Art, Albums and Fine Art Prints
Essentially, your main choices are hand crafted fine art prints, wall art, leather albums or a combination of these. Digital images are also available too.
I am a devout fan of wall art and fine art prints, so I have chosen a quality professional lab that uses superior inks and materials. They represents my work in the best way possible. I can personally guarantee that you will get archival quality fine art prints that will maintain their appearance for many years to come.
Quality and Sustainability
I look for quality workmanship in my suppliers so I can create beautiful fine art portraits and albums that will exist in families for years and, for some, generations.
I work with the very best professional fine art printers in the industry to ensure that your chosen pieces are second to none. I have carefully selected papers, album boards and packaging; all derived from sustainable sources and recycled materials to reduce our impact on the environment. Working with companies that have a focus on sustainability is hugely important to me.
I’ll work with you from beginning to end to give you something that truly resonates with you. I will use my experience and creative eye to help you towards your goal in terms of wall placement and/or choices for your album.
Take time to think about how you see yourself enjoying your images now, and, in years to come and choose the right one for you.
