Very sharp and with more ability to sculpt the subject. Dramatic and crisp finish. Great for headshots, some boudoir, fitness, model folios and portraits.
Add shadow and depth to the subject. Great for men. Option to include coloured gels & smoky haze for more drama. Perfect for performers & kids sport sessions.

The hardest part was choosing the photos!
We are returning customers, having had our daughter photographed some years ago. Now that she is sprouting into a beautiful young lady, we didn't hesitate to book again!
Karen is a delight to deal with, always accommodating and organised. Dean's talent speaks for itself! With lots of Collaborative ideas and with their fine attention to detail, the end result is incredible!
The hardest part was having to choose which photos to pick as they all looked fantastic! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the whole process!
My expectations were exceeded!
I am still living my experience as my pictures start to surface after the incredible day we had taking them.
I'm quite overwhelmed at how my expectations were exceeded .... at how relaxed I was through the whole experience... and at how much faith and trust I felt I could reliably place in Dean and Karen.
At 51 years this was a personal great moment for me.... I felt incredible and I have superb artistic photos that I will treasure. I'm a happy girl!

I was made to feel beautiful & Amazing!
I would sincerely like to thank Karen and Dean for the beautiful photo shoot I attended for mine and my husband's anniversary. I have never had make up and hair done before so I was very much out of my comfort zone, to say that I was nervous would be quite an understatement. As soon as I walked in to their beautiful home I was made to feel warm, welcome and comfortable.
The photos turned out better than I could've ever expected and delivered in such a quick turnaround time that I cannot recommend them highly enough. Complete five star rating from me. Thank you so much.
The most beautiful maternity photos we could have ever hoped for!
Thank you Dean and Karen for an amazing maternity shoot, you made me feel so comfortable and encouraged me to be brave to get the most beautiful photos we could have ever hoped for… can’t wait to see the finished product it was an experience we will never forget from the make up to the conversations to the shooting made for a truly memorable day.
