· it's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not ·

It strongly believe that it is time that we as women learnt that we can and should be proud of our bodies, our lifestyles and all parts of our story no matter what anyone else thinks. I firmly believe that women should look in the mirror and love what they see even if it goes against everything that social media tells us is beautiful. And I absolutley believe that we should be able to celebrate our bodies, our faces and our quirks and be proud of them all. Because ladies we do not need to look like a celebrity to be worthy, we do not need to do our makeup a certain way to be beautiful and we most certinately do not need to be a size zero to be proud of and love our body.

· this is the beginning of loving yourself. welcome home ·

If you're already happy and comfortable infront of a camera then that is wonderful and I can't wait to start working with you to capture your love of life and the fantastic woman you are in a truly beautiful way. But what about those that aren't quite there yet? What about the women that are struggling with their confidence and are looking for a way to boost their self-esteem? Well it's you that these sessions were made for...

I understand that being in front of a camera can make you feel vulnerable and for many of you there might be a strong, deep reason that you don't feel beautiful or worthy or proud of yourself right now but from the moment you send your enquiry we will start working together to change that. Now I must say that I'm no therapist but I do believe in the power of  beautiful portraits to change someones mindset. You don't have to tell me your backstory that lead you to this page but I can say from experience that a photoshoot like this will give you confidence, self love and empowerment beyond belief. 


I will guide you through your session but you will take the lead. You will decide what clothes, the style and how many of them you wear. You will decide how your hair and makeup are done and you will decide on the location too because only you know what makes you feel great. I will advise on the best way to hold yourself and where to position your arms and I will guide you to the most beautiful light at your chosen location so that you can just let go, throw away your worries and shine. I will capture your glory, highlight your beauty and by the time you look at your finished gallery, you won't see any flaws in yourself at all. Instead you will beam with pride and feel ready to take on anything that the world throws at you. 

· i get by with a little help from my friends ·

Elegance & Power Sessions don't have to be a solo crusade either; some women book as one of their North Yorkshire hen-do activities and teenage girls book to mark the end of their school journey with their best friends. All group bookings feature a group session and short individual ones too. You can also use Elegance & Power to show off your tallents - I've had dancers, knitters and a shoe collector too; these sessions are about celebrating you so whatever you want to celebrate we will.

Wherever we go and whatever you do, you will leave your session feeling like a different woman. A woman that can say I am me and I am proud. And believe me, there is nothing more beautiful than that.


Sessions can take place at any location within North Yorkshire and travel is never charged for. I'm based near Goathland in the North York Moors so you are weclome to join me down on the stepping stones or up on the Moor if you fancy something totally different for your portraits and a little off the beaten track so you don't feel over-looked. Of course there are many stunning locations around Whitby, Pickering, Knaresborough, York, Harroagate and Ripon to use or we could simply stay at your home for the session instead. The possibilities are endless but I am here to help you make the decision as part of the service.
