I’m Mandy Herbert, and I use my ten-plus years of experience in providing a professional photography service to people from all walks of life.
I approach each commission with relish, looking forward to discovering your individual goals, and making you look simply gorgeous while maintaining a fresh, clean, modern photographic style.
Everyone loves a great photo that they can use for the family album, on Christmas cards to friends, or simply for online profiles however the way to the glorious result is a little different with me.
You may prepare for the day by choosing your best clothes, flattening that stray hair, and polishing the patent shoes but as soon as you step inside my studio, you’ll wonder why you were so nervous!
I believe that beauty comes from within, it’s a cliché I know, but natural smiles are the best. Therefore, my job is not simply to take your photograph, it’s to put you at ease, make you smile, make you show me who you really are!
Only by delving deep and paying attention to what makes you tick will I be able to deliver the photographs that you think are out of this world.
There’s no defining structure for what we’ll get up to, as everyone’s different. Going with the flow works best for natural smiles and pictures that you’ll treasure forever.
Whether it’s a photo of you on your own or a family portrait I won’t ask you to stand up straight, smile for the camera, and look straight at the flash! These methods went out in the Victorian age, I want to capture life, I want to capture your life and I want your photo to be buzzing with energy!
My first task is to make you relax, don’t worry you’ll never feel self-conscious or made to feel a fool! We’ll do this in a variety of ways, depending on how you’d like to be photographed, how you are going to use the pictures, and what you’d like the outcome to be.
Everyone wants a photo that doesn’t look staged and that’s exactly what I like to produce. We won’t simply stand about, we might take a stroll along the coast, share a coffee ahead of the session, or jump right in to shake off the nerves. Basically, anything that ensures your tension subsides, your confidence grows and your smiles keep coming is good enough for me!
Sometimes you’re at your most relaxed when you’re in the company of someone you trust. And I want to be that person. Your partner, best friends, even your mum will see a side of you that has never been caught on camera before.
In summary, you’re not simply turning up to a studio, standing in a line, and being snapped by a silent photographer, you’re having a fun day out where every laugh and smile will be caught on camera!
