Booking

How do I book a shoot?

I'll get back to you within 24 hours to confirm your date and requirements. A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to confirm your date and time.

Age is not relevant! I have worked with everyone from young children to people in their 80s. I am fully DBS checked. Those under 16 should be accompanied by an adult during the shoot.





Preparing For Your Shoot

What happens before the shoot?


Photoshoots can be scary, especially if you don't like having your photo taken. This is why I'm here to help! Each session includes a pre-shoot consultation via video call/telephone. This is a chance for us to get to know each other. We'll discuss your reasons for booking a shoot, plus any ideas you have. We'll discuss clothing options too, so you'll arrive at the shoot confident and relaxed.




What happens during the shoot?


Expect your shoot to be fun and challenging, so I encourage you to arrive with an open mind. Each shoot is unique to the subject - my goal is to celebrabrate you as an individual. Depending on the type of shoot, I'll suggest lots of different poses depending on your strengths and motivation. The session is all about you and your individuality. My aim is for you to leave your session feeling excited and confident!




I have ideas for poses - can we do these?


Absolutely!




I have no idea about poses - help!


Absolutely fine too! I've trained in movement and dance for over 10 years, so have an expert eye on making you look your best. Your uniqueness is special, and my photographs aim to celebrate that. Whatever we decide to do, my aim is for you to feel confident and safe at all times.




What should I wear?


Depending on our chosen location, plus your motivation for getting photographs taken, we'll agree on clothing that will show you in your best light.

Portrait Photographer London Ellis Pecen

"Grace has a great eye for artistic detail and storytelling and made me feel really at ease immediately.

 

Because of this the pictures looked natural and relaxed early on and I felt the shots expressed a lot of authenticity and character.

 

Grace is professional and approachable and gets the best out of the people she works with. She also devotes a lot of time to the shoots and shows great diversity in the types of shots she takes.

 

Grace genuinely cares about the person and their unique creative intention and she is able to adapt accordingly.

 

I enjoyed working with her very much and have used the varied portfolio of shots in a range of contexts.

 

I thoroughly recommend working with Grace and I look forward to doing so again!"
