An empowering photoshoot experience that celebrates your unique beauty and soul
Are you tired of selfies or asking your family to take a ‘nice’ photo of you? Do you wish that you could capture this moment of your life as a woman or maybe it stresses you out that all your pictures are out of date and you actually need a good one for something?
As women, we often don’t like being in the centre of attention. But what if you gave yourself permission to celebrate your uniqueness and beauty?
This empowering, personalised experience is for you if you wish to boost your confidence, feel inspired and uplifted, and celebrate this moment in your life.
Working directly with me, Petra Gatto, a female personal brand expert and lifestyle photographer you’ll walk away with 20 portraits that capture your essence. It’s your choice if you wish to share them with the world or keep them only for you and your loved ones.
As a Portrait Photographer, it’s my mission to capture the essence of you, but as a personal branding expert , my promise to you is that I will do more than just take a flattering photograph. My passion is to provide you with an empowering experience that goes beyond a picture as I take time to first find out who you are, what values you have. Not only will you come away with an authentic, feminine photo that visualizes your true essence, but you will leave feeling beautiful, confident and like the incredible woman you are!
My approach is to tailor the experience to you. I have no set formula or blueprint with regards to how to take your portraits. What brings empowerment is entirely unique from one individual to the next; from lifestyle urban portraits and studio photos to gorgeous flattering window portraits. If you have ideas we can brainstorm and make a plan.
It’s time to celebrate life and celebrate YOU!
The perfect way to celebrate your life and uniqueness. Having your portrait taken supports your self-love and self-acceptance.
First we will have a powerful one-hour session either on zoom or by person e.g. in my favorite AllBright London Mayfair club. Sets of discovery questions will help us to understand who you are, what you like, and what is your personal brand.
2. PERSONALISED PLAN
Following the discovery session, I create a photoshoot plan on how to best capture your essence. This includes locations suggestions, mood boards, and styling ideas.
3. PHOTO SHOOT
This will take place for 2 Hours in London. We can use 2 locations and you can have 3-5 outfit changes. I will guide you through the shoot on the day. I will share images with you throughout the shoot to put you at ease and remind you just how beautiful you are
A few days after the shoot, I will personally walk you through the image gallery to help you choose the best 20 portraits that will be then fully edited for you.
I enjoyed working with Petra, she made me at ease from the beginning of the shooting to the end. She understood my ideas and requirements without me needed to navigate or explain. This resulted in really natural and beautiful pictures. I definitely recommend to anyone who wants to take amazing pictures in relaxing way.
The session was a present for me as part of my self-care after a pretty difficult year battling with my health. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it! I felt so beautiful…what a much needed boost to my confidence! I think every woman should have such an experience.
Petra has a natural gift for bringing out the best of your authentic self in photographs. She understood that it takes time to relax and was very patient to try out different poses and locations in order to get everything just right. I have never had a professional shoot before and I generally don't like to be in front of a camera but Petra put me at ease and I loved the photos she took of me!
The light and texture in the photos were beautifully balanced and the photos had this wonderful mix of urban and feminine. What was really important to me is that Petra is an empathetic photographer who lets her talent be guided by the character of the person in front of her. The photoshoot with Petra was a lovely and positive experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend her.
My style has been described as being authentic, urban, feminine yet powerful. My photos are natural, full of colours.
Yes, you are welcome to buy a gift voucher for your loved one! It makes it great present for any birthday, Christmas or just because.
I am primarily based in London, UK but I frequently travel to my hometown in Prague, Czech Republic. However I am ready to travel to my clients beyond these places.
I will always edit blemishes or scratches. Skin will be smoothed so it looks nice and naturally soft. Under-eye circles are lightened or removed a bit so it still looks natural.
Absolutely, I provide you with a detailed guide on how to get camera ready! This includes wardrobe tips, beauty and self-care tips. I work with amazing stylists and make up/hair stylist who could help as well!
Most of my clients say the same! And do they look awkward? No! Why? Because I take the time to help them relax, put them at ease and make them feel confident. Only then do we start shooting. It's person first, camera lens second. My talent is to capture your true essence and getting the real YOU to shine!
