I'm not normally comfortable in these situations, but Nicola couldn't have been more personable and professional. Immediately put me at ease and seemed to know exactly how to get the best out of me, by making me feel very relaxed and an enjoyable experience. Would definitely use again, including for some of our team; the packages are really good value for money and would recommend to anybody looking to improve their corporate image.
"Thank you Nicky for making the shoot relaxing and fun. Love the results Can highly recommend Nicky as a professional and talented photographer with a beautiful studio with great natural light. X"
"A fantastic experience which as a result has given me a number of great headshots to help with my corporate branding. Big thanks to Nicola who made the session go so well in a relaxed and professional environment."
"My heart is completely melting when I look at this photo. Thank you so much for helping us to keep forever this wonderful time on those photos. Highly recommended you as a photographer and lovely person to everyone!!! Xx"
"Nicola is not only a great photographer but so friendly and welcoming too. I am not very comfortable at all in front of the camera, so I was a little nervous when I arrived for my shoot but Nicola immediately put me at ease and very quickly I relaxed and started to enjoy myself! I had a lot of fun, just focusing on me, no children!, dressing up and posing! And the best part is that I have a set of beautiful photos now that I will treasure. Thank you Nicola! x"
"It was an amazing experience to be photographed by Nicola. The session was such fun and Nicola made me feel so relaxed and at ease. A really lovely idea as a gift for a busy mum, would highly recommend."
"Ordinarily it's the kiddies who get pampered and snapped, so loved every minute of my own photoshoot with Nicola. Throughout the whole session she made me feel very relaxed and spent lots of time with me in creating the perfect shot. Thanks very much Nicola, loved the whole experience and even happier with the photos you've created!"
"This is one of my favourite photos of the whole set - although it was hard to choose which is why we ordered so many in the end. Nicola was incredibly professional, whilst making us all feel at ease during the shoot - most importantly, Imogen. She was able to work wonders moving her into many different positions whilst awake and asleep and Imogen was relaxed and comfortable the entire time. We had total control over what kind of photos we wanted and took inspiration from some of the other lovely photos on Nicola's site. A great experience with amazing results. We're so happy with our photos."
"Not only is Nicola great at what she does, but she is a lovely person too. She helped me to feel completely at ease, so I could get the best out of my portrait session. It's a great opportunity to put on some of your favourite outfits, have fun and feel fabulous, all at the same time!"
"We are really pleased that we captured our wee man's first couple of weeks in the world. Nicola made the experience enjoyable too and was a deft pair of hands with handling and positioning our wee man such that he was calm throughout the shoot."
My work is split between working with dancers and dance schools. For the former we work to build a portfolio of images which are an essential part of self-presentation for an artist to increase visibility suitable for audition submission. Secondly, for the dance schools, we produce a series of product images which are used for publicity purposes prior to the show opening and for social media coverage. We also cover theatre shots of the dress rehearsal and/or the live show performances.
The processes to achieve the above will differ between the genre of the shoot. From a home or studio location for newborn, portrait or portfolio to a theatre for the dress rehearsal or live performance of a dance show. However in every instance I will sit down with you before any photographs are taken to agree exactly what your requirements are and to walk through how your shoot will take place.
Only the best images are selected for presentation to the client. These will be edited for clarity and colour and cleaned up before being made available for review.
The images are then displayed online and password protected for extra security. There they can be viewed, favouites selected and purchased, then delivered direct to the client.
All images are handled with extreme care. I have sourced one of the best professional photographic laboratories in the country to process the chosen images. They always deliver to the very highest standards of processing and finishing, however as a secondary control I then personally check all prints before packaging up and sending out to the client.
