We started Women’s Portraiture because as women, we wanted to remind women how beautiful they really are. In today’s world of modern media, it’s something often forgotten. We’re not shiny enough, thin enough, pretty enough, healthy enough – we’ve all had those thoughts run through our minds.
Through women’s portraiture, we want women of all ages to see the beauty in themselves – the beauty that people who love them, see in them every single day. The experience is designed to pamper and celebrate the everyday woman. When you love who you are, you glow from within.
Our style is chic and contemporary, with a touch of quirkiness. We discuss everything with our clients to make sure that everyone is happy and relaxed when the lights go on!
What can I expect from a typical Portraiture session?
A typical session with us starts at 10 AM. You will arrive fresh-faced, and makeup-free at our studio with your many outfits, that we’ve discussed and picked out in advance. We then help you pick out your makeup look and hair style, depending on your personal style. Once your hair and makeup is complete, we will then proceed with the most wonderful shoot you will ever have. We cannot be held responsible for how gorgeous you will look and feel!
How long does a session last?
3-4 hours, including the hair, makeup, and the dress-up process. The actual number of hours really depends on the number of people who come in for the session. So if it’s just you, it takes about 90 minutes to finish the shoot after the hair and makeup. However, if more family members come in for the session, then it takes a little longer, since we like to give everyone individual attention during the shoot as well.
Where is this shoot done?
Our studio is in Lake Central Tower in Business Bay. This is where we do all of our Portraiture Sessions.
Can I bring my family or friends along for this shoot?
Yes. In fact, we encourage it. Since you’ve already booked the studio, and are looking stunning, it only makes sense to get the hubby and kids in for some amazing family portraits as well. If you’ve booked a family session, a couple of hours into your shoot, your family will arrive to the studio and we will then proceed to do a family shoot for all of you.
Ok, so now I’m excited! How do I prepare for my shoot? What should I wear?
The week prior to the shoot, we will help you pick your outfits out by giving you guidelines and talking you through the requirements, to ensure you look the absolute best during your session. We also have some really flirty and feminine pieces in our studio as well to add to the fun. Be sure to book a fun night out afterwards since you’ll be all dolled up and will look seriously hot!
Will you guys be doing my hair and makeup?
Yes! That’s the thing that excites us the most! 🙂 We work with awesome hair and makeup artists, and all of our Portraiture sessions include professional hair and makeup within the session fee. Our professional hair and makeup artists work their magic on you at our studio the morning of your shoot.
I’m really awkward in front of the camera and I really don’t know how to pose. Will you guide me?
Posing women for their body types, and bringing out your emotions, is our main strength. You really have nothing to worry about when it comes to us – every insecurity you’ve felt, we’ve felt it too. We promise, you’ll be in very safe hands.
I really want to do this, but the camera doesn’t love me.
All we can say is, challenge accepted! Believe us when we say this – We want to show you how beautiful you are. This is our passion, and it is what we do best.
How soon after the shoot can we come in for our View and Choose session?
Your View and Choose session is scheduled 3 weeks after your shoot date. This is the session where you will see the results of your shoot, and will choose the images you would like to purchase.
What Products do you offer for these sessions?
You will walk away with prints of all the images that you choose. Be prepared to fall in love with what you take home. We’ve crafted one-of-a-kind, bespoke packaging that is absolutely gorgeous and will stand the test of time. We have a Pricing Guide outlining our products and prices, so please get in touch with us to see it all 🙂
