December is always a busy one…..

As you can probably tell from the lack of updates recently…December is always a very very busy month for us! We shot everything from families, babies, kids, pets, couples, networking, events, businesses and head shots….

Not to mention we sold a HEAP load of gift vouchers as Christmas presents. January is also very busy with clients booking in, so if you are looking to make an appointment we suggest doing it sooner rather than later so that we can do our best to get your preferred date and time. Call us on 01202 432234

I also got this incredibly lovely testimonial from Venus Women Awards“As well as for events and promotions, Zelda was the photographer for my profile pictures, one of which turned out good enough to be the cover of a Magazine and another 18 foot high on the side of a bus. I unreservedly recommend Zelda if you want a photographer to make you look your best”

I’ll be back in the office from Monday 12th January at 10am. 

Miners Cosmetics & NVS

Back in January, I was asked by Miners Cosmetics to photograph the London band NVS (you may have seen them on X Factor, and supporting The Saturdays on tour!) for their Unique You Magazine.

The first edition of the magazine came out back in the spring and just 2 weeks ago the autumn/winter edition of the Unique You magazine was released. The cover shot, of band member Tess, is one of my favorite photographs I’ve created from this whole year! I can’t wait to work for such an amazing company again, producing some stunning photography.

Autumn and Winter 2014 Everyday Make-up Trends

Autumn/Winter Everyday Make-up Trends For 2014 

DSC_9555-1DSC_9494I recently took on a beauty photo shoot to portray the Autumn and Winter Make-Up Trends for 2014 that the every day woman can wear. We focused on 2 main trends;

1: Bold Eye-makeup

This season is about messing around with bright, cold and daring colours on your eyes – evident by bright green eye shadow shown on the Dior cat walk. Pink shades of eye shadow are well shown this season, I particularly like the make-up for the Donna Karen cat walk on Charlotte Tilbury. The number 1 must have thing is wounded eye liner, but not in black – in bright neons! Try blues and yellows for something a bit different.  Surprisingly, bold shades and neons will suit most skin tones!


2: Stained Berry Matt Lipstick

DSC_9705_ppbbGlosses are not in sight this season. It’s all about the stained look of matt lipstick in autumn favourite colours such as reds and burgundies. Lips are strong and in this season yet give the shine a miss.

Splendid, matt shades and blasts of hot bubblegum pinks have been everywhere throughout the catwalks this season, and additionally extraordinary fuchsia, neon orange, coral red and blood red.

The shades were worn alone, matt lips were evident at the path at Missoni, Dries Van Norten, Moschino and Paul Smith.

Angel’s Beauty Shoot

We went for Indian day wear & something a little more fun & fashion orientated with this shoot. The Indian Day is inspired by Indian bridal make-up, heavy liquid eyeliner and beautiful bold colours which have been toned down for a day look.

The artistic, fashion look was peacock inspired with the feather as the inspiration with gorgeous textures and details on the eyes showing through.

Precious Family Photographs

When asked what they’d rescue from a falling down house, most people say family photographs.

Those lovely old family albums, full of treasured photos of young-looking parents, grandparents and siblings. Family portraits are an important part of our history, telling us where we’ve come from and how we’ve come to be the way we are. Family photos capture passions, interests, loves and relationships.

We create beautiful family portraiture that will be handed down to your children. The kind of portraits that will be proudly displayed on walls, mantelpieces and bedside cabinets for generations.

Imagine how devastated you’d be if you only had digital files of your portraits, and your computer packs up! This is why we offer digital file & print bundles, so you can have the best of both!

Studio Shotz specializes on family photography portraits and is based on Christchurch, Dorset. Check our family photography packages now!

South Coast Fashion Week

Studio Shotz was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the 1st ever South Coast Fashion Week at the Bournemouth International Centre on 9 – 11th May 2014.

The show was incredible, with high end designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Estee Lauder, House of Fraser and as well as boutique local brands such as Scissors Salons, LMP Model Boutiqe, Boudoir Blush, MWAH, Mint Velvet and Tempanys.

There were multiple runway shows each day from Bournemouth & Poole College, House of Fraser and the grand finale of the Arts University Bournemouth Fashion Graduates putting on a different show each of the 3 days!

It was a truly exciting, amazing…exhausting 😉 experience and I cannot wait to be a part of it again next year!
