Magazine style portraiture in Kent
"What a treat to get promotional photos for our business shot by someone who's also worked with Cosmo and Paul McCartney! We were really pleased!" Pure Beauty Salon, Whitstable
I've been working for magazines for over 15 years. Cosmopolitan, Closer, Marie Claire, Heat, Stylist......It's a long list. It means I've photographed a lot of people in many different locations, styles and situations. I'm now offering all that experience to the people, children and dogs of East Kent. Whether a personal family portrait or a commercial commission for staff portraits, I have the experience and creativity to take some great photos for you.
Covering Kent including Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Margate, Broadstairs
(I take commissions outside of Kent but these do cost more due to travel time and expenses)
"Lizzie took a set of gorgeous photos of our twin girls when they were only a few weeks old. The black and white shots are a perfect memory of them in their early days and just so beautifully captured. She created a lovely relaxed atmosphere against a simple backdrop in our home. We will definitely use her again and thoroughly recommend her. You don't get better than Lizzie, this is London quality, locally!" Joanna, Whitstable
I'm happy to travel to you for a shoot within a 30 mile radius of Herne Bay. I have backdrops and studio lighting, which I use for my editorial work. I can therefore come to you and create a temporary studio in your own home. If you prefer, or if you live over 30 miles away, you can come to my place in Herne Bay for the shoot.
Studio and Location photographs
"Lizzie was commissioned by my kids to do a portrait of them for my 50th birthday present. I love the picture and still look at it every day, it's the focal point of my sitting room and a real conversation piece. She came up with such a fun and creative idea for the shoot and I'll never get bored of looking at it - she even got Dolly my dog in there with a party hat on!" Pauline, Herne Bay
As well as studio style photographs, I'm happy to discuss ideas for photographs in alternative locations with you. Your sitting room, the beach, a cafe ..... It's also possible to combine the two, a studio shoot coupled with some pictures on your sofa for example. If you want to talk over an idea you have for a photo, please feel free to give me a call.
Relaxed and Friendly
"Working with Liz was a joy. She has the knack of putting you at your ease and teasing out of you your true self. I loved her imagination and good humour as she dealt with an older woman who, although speaks in public a lot, has her shy side!" Yvonne, Whitstable
I love meeting people and I love taking photos. I'm enjoying myself when I'm working, the atmosphere I create is relaxed and friendly, which means you should have a nice time too !
A shoot of about an hour and a half, including 2 retouched A4 prints and their corresponding 5MB jpeg files is £120
A half a day shoot, including all 5MB jpeg files and 5 retouched prints is £250
A full day shoot, including all 5MB jpeg files and 10 retouched prints is £450
Photo shoots outside of Kent cost an extra £1 per mile travelled from Herne Bay. If an overnight stay is necessary due to the distance being too far to travel there and back in one day, accomodation expenses will also need to be covered.
If you have friends or family who would also like some Photos by Lizzie pictures, maybe consider hiring me for a half or full day and split the cost !
