The Celebration of Women

Little Black Dress

My “little black dress” shoot is all about giving women an excuse to take time out for themselves. It's about the celebration of woman and feeling good about ourselves.

It started as a project

I started this shoot idea in September 2016 by inviting local women from Hurstpierpoint to come and join my "Little Black Dress" project. 20 women took part and it was a massive success. I can't believe how many women told me how good it made them feel for all different reasons.

Confidence boost

Women across the spectrum of age and size came along and each one's beauty shone out. Please take a moment to watch my short photo film below to see results from that first shoot with 20 women.

Studio or location

You can choose either a studio or a location for this celebration of woman shoot. What you’ll find is that I'm friendly and easy going and you will soon feel relaxed and comfortable being photographed.

A box of special memories

Once I have fully edited your images you will be invited back to view them in my studio. I will be on hand to help you choose your pictures and the beautiful products I offer to show your images off in the best way. A memory box of mounted prints is a special favourite, just for you.

“I took part in the "little black dress" shoot, slightly out of my comfort area being in front of the camera, Lou totally put me at ease saying "just enjoy it". By the end of the shoot I was getting well into it and could have worked with her all day! Absolutely loved it and even more so my photos... which were amazing!! Lou comes very highly recommended.Thanks Lou xx.  Michelle H
