Parachute Dress Photo Shoot
A Shoot Like No Other
If you are after a truly magical experience giving you a stunning set of high fashion maternity portraits that no one else will have, the parachute dress is perfect for you. The dress has been hand made exclusively for my me by the amazing Alice Andrews Design over in the US. I have admired her dresses for years and so commissioned a piece by her this winter. If you have seen the style of outdoor portraits I do you’ll understand the need for a dress that would blend with nature and not clash, which is why I have gone for the colour I have. It is truly unique, there are no other photographers doing this kind of shoot that I can find. Be a one off – give me a call..
So first things first, this will be more expensive than a normal shoot so you need to be aware of this. I need to cover the cost of 2 (rather than 1) assistant, licence for the park you would like to shoot in, cleaning of the dress etc on top of my usual overheads. I promise you it will be worth it and you’ll be the envy of your friends

Where should I do the shoot?
I can recommend places in London for the session to take place. Essentially we need space and as few people as possible, as such, some parks lend themselves to this kind of shoot than others. For example, Hampstead Heath and Richmond Park are gorgeous and a little easier to escape the crowds. I have listed a number of location possilities in the booking form but do let me know if you have an idea for location.
How does it work?
The session will start with you changing into the dress which comes in 2 parts (the skirt is detatchable so you can walk without killing yourself!). We can work out logistics for this before hand, it may be that we meet up at the nearest cafe to change. We will then spend around an hour creating your portfolio of images to include closer cropped portraits as well as the dramatic wide angle big skirt images. I will have with me probably 2 assistants to help manage the skirt and make sure it is controlled and not flying away too much.
What size is the dress
The dress is to fit a variety of sizes and has been made to work around your bump. It should fit you if you are size 10 and if you are size 16. If you are unsure how it will work and you are either very petit or think you’re bigger than a size 16 you can come to try on the dress in my West London Studio beforehand.
What if the weather is bad?
So I am looking for an overcast day with no rain in order to get the shots I want. If it’s looking like it’s going to be bright sunshine or heavy rain we may need to push back a day or so. There’s no point in half measures here.
What is the cost?
The cost for the Parachute Dress session is £790 and includes the session fee, 6 finished portraits in digital form and print form (any size) from your gallery – if you would like me to frame your prints then do ask for a quote. You can of course upgrade to more images and more framed prints or go for a very large framed print for the dramatic effect. The cost will be split in 2 parts, £210 to be paid as a deposit and £580 on the day of the shoot.
