“Dear Karen & Dean,

I’ve been meaning to send this message ages ago but end of school year got on top of me. I wanted to thank you so much for giving Georgie such an amazing experience! Apart from making us incredibly proud of how well she handled the shoot, you also gave us the joy of looking at her photos, that capture the intensity of her little spirit.

However more importantly, you did something even larger than our joy and pride. You both created an opportunity for Georgie to see herself in a different way. Georgie has always had lots of comments about her looks- and we’ve always told her beauty on the outside is nothing if you’re not beautiful on the inside! Georgie has known that she has a kind heart & earns lots of praise from teachers and coaches for her compassion, kindness and ability to make other people feel valued and important. What Mark & I didn’t realise is that she didn’t ‘know’ she was beautiful on the outside as well. She looked at those photos in awe and said,” I am beautiful – I didn’t think I was – but I am! ”

I wanted to take the opportunity of giving you feedback. You were both exceptional at making us all feel comfortable with the whole process. You given us much joy. I hope you both enjoy a relaxed & joyful Christmas. Cheers”

“I picked my photos up from the post office yesterday afternoon. They are just beautiful. Many thanks to you both for a wonderful experience.

“I PICKED MY PHOTOS UP FROM THE POST OFFICE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. THEY ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL.”

I must also thank your makeup artist/stylist for being so friendly and welcoming. Not to mention what an awesome result she achieved for me. I am sure I will treasure these photos for a long time to come.

Thank you also for the voucher for referring a friend. I would recommend this experience for anyone.”

Kiara“Thank you Karen, and thank you to Dean & Carla also – you’re a formidable team.

Thank you for welcoming Kiara and I to your home and studio and for producing such stunning and edgy photos – we are so happy with them. We will highly recommend you and your team to everyone and anyone.

I just love your photos Dean – ‘you don’t take a photograph, you make it’, thank you for making something special for Kiara.

We have already had great feedback from Kiara’s agent and family and friends.

Karen thanks for giving some valuable feedback to Kiara to look at magazines and to keep practicing posing. We know she has a long way to go and it’s a tough industry, but this is what she loves and wants to do and we will continue to support her dream.

We hope to return to you in the future to create more special moments.”

Sarahkeep“Just wanted to say a big thank you!!

The photo’s arrived so beautifully presented.

I am extremely pleased with everything and the whole experience from start to end.

I have been an admirer of your work on Facebook for a long time. After watching the youtube videos of others experiences and how comfortable and pleased they were, I noticed the $395 Sexy Sunday package including the photo’s, hair and make-up,

I decided to give it a try for a gift for the hubby’s Birthday, Not really thinking I could pull off Sexy, but hey what could it hurt.

So I arrived with my 2 daughters, with a firm warning to behave (which they did thanks to the adorable puppy Sammie there to amuse them).

I was warmly invited in by Carla and then the Magic began!!! Most women believe that their wedding day is their one time to really shine, but Carla topped that moment by far with her perfect application of make up and hair styling.

When I looked in the mirror at her work I was so impressed with my reflection! Wow.

I took a deep breath and thought I can do this I can pull off Sexy.

Then it was all up to Dean and Karen to perform the next miracle, Of course after child birth things aren’t as we would like, But I felt extremely comfortable with the guidance and body placement and positioning help from Karen and eye for detail from dean it all happened we did it.

Beautiful Sexy pictures were created!! Then the hard part picking the favourite pictures, I honestly didn’t think it would be possible to capture so many great shots! (I am usually the person who ruins the family photo with shut eyes or something).

I WAS WARMLY INVITED IN BY CARLA AND THEN THE MAGIC BEGAN!!! MOST WOMEN BELIEVE THAT THEIR WEDDING DAY IS THEIR ONE TIME TO REALLY SHINE, BUT CARLA TOPPED THAT MOMENT BY FAR WITH HER PERFECT APPLICATION OF MAKE UP AND HAIR STYLING.

So after the photos were picked I left feeling very excited and pleased what a buzz. Driving home having a little peek in the rear view mirror every now and again admiring the sexy face in the mirror.

I did it, I was sexy for a day! actually 4 days the lashes and hair stayed in so well. Yay.

I have felt a little sexier ever since.

And I am so pleased that it has been captured in a photo to keep forever to prove that sexy is possible. My husband loves them and have had so many compliments on FB which has been such a confidence booster.

I honestly believe that every woman should treat herself to a Sexy sunday session. What a wonderful experience, I can’t wait to do it again sometime maybe a couples or family shoot!

So thank you very much for a wonderful and memorable day at Dean Agar Photography.

Thank you Carla, Karen and Dean for making it possible.”

“WITH DEAN AND KAREN, THEY MADE ME FEEL SUPER COMFORTABLE.”

“I have had 2 photo shoots with Dean and Karen. I have had photo shoots in the past where I haven’t felt comfortable with the photographer or liked the photos.

But with Dean and Karen, they made me feel super comfortable, offered great conversations and laughs, made me feel beautiful in my own skin and I absolutely love the end product.
I highly recommend these guys and would give them 100 star 🌟 rating if I could ❤️

I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT I FEEL THAT THIS WAS MONEY WELL SPENT AND THROUGH THIS NEWLY CREATED PORTFOLIO, I CAN NOW CONFIDENTLY PRESENT MYSELF AND “MY BRAND” ONLINE.

Alexverghis“Dean and Karen are true professionals in their discipline. Having never had experience in a photo shoot environment before, i felt tense and my mouth was tight initially and this was reflected in the first few photos taken. Dean was quick to identify this and gave me many pointers on body language and exercises to relax my mouth, and made me aware that this was a mistake that is often made by many people and novices in particular.

As the photo shoot progressed, I took his advice on board and practiced some of these exercises and this made a huge difference. Dean is not only an excellent photographer but he knows how to bring to life the best in people when they are in front of a camera. This is what makes him a talented photographer. Karen is a perfectionist and compliments their team by paying great attention to detail. She ensured that my clothing sat in the correct place for my corporate photos and that I was well oiled and watered for my fitness photos.

The proof of their talents is demonstrated in the photos that they took. Pictures speak more than one thousand words and this is evident in the quality of my photo portfolio that was chosen. I am happy to say that I feel that this was money well spent and through this newly created portfolio, I can now confidently present myself and “my brand” online.”

DEAN WAS PROFESSIONAL, AND MADE ME FEEL COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SHOOT. WHEN I WAS A LITTLE LOST WITH POSING KAREN WAS THERE TO HELP OUT!

“Our photos arrived today and words cant describe how beautifully they have turned out! When Adrian and I arrived for our Sexy Sunday shoot we were instantly put at ease with the studios welcoming vibe. Initially I was daunted by the thought of having someone other than my husband see me in next to nothing! Dean was professional, and made me feel completely comfortable throughout the whole shoot. When i was a little lost with posing Karen was there to help out! I would have been a little lost without her telling me where to put my hands etc. And i cant forget Carla, who did amazing job with my hair makeup.

Thank you again for our amazing photos! Now it’s time to have them framed pronto so i can get these babies on display!”

“I LOVE MY MATERNITY SHOOT PHOTOS.”

“I love my maternity shoot photos which at the time I was unsure about getting but so glad I did! Dean & Karen were also fabulous with my 3yo and got some amazing photos of her which we will treasure forever!

Lovely to work with and some good chat and banter ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“ME AND MY PARTNER ARE INDESCRIBABLY HAPPY WITH THE PHOTOS.”

“Me and my partner are indescribably happy with the photos produced from our shoot. Dean and Karen did an amazing job capturing our relationship in every single shot beautifully.

We were both quite nervous before our shoot as we had never done anything like this before but within minutes of meeting Dean and Karen we were made to feel at ease and remained comfortable for the entire shoot. We will definitely be booking another session in the future and can’t wait to see how you capture the next chapter in our lives together.”

Michelle Harman

“Hi Karen,

I can’t stop thinking about Saturday. I had such a great time, and I know I was INCREDIBLY nervous at first, but it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself.

I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT SATURDAY. I HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME.

I would LOVE to do it again! I can’t wait to be pregnant just so I can come back and get maternity photos done lol. You guys were just wonderful, you made me feel comfortable, and you were professional and helpful, and I just could not be happier with the results. THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

I COULD HAVE BOUGHT PRACTICALLY EVERY PHOTO THAT HE TOOK. IT WAS SO MUCH OF A CHALLENGE TO GET MY FINAL LIST DOWN TO SIX THAT I HAD TO GET EXTRAS!

Libby“I had been thinking about getting a glamourous photo shoot done for several years now, but I was lacking motivation as so many glamour shoots look the same with that overly photoshopped finish. I finally came across the website for Dean Agar Photography and was inspired by the pinup shots in their portfolio. I bit the bullet and booked an appointment.

Everything was perfect from the get-go; my makeup and hair were exactly what I wanted, even though I couldn’t tell Tracey what I wanted in the slightest! We started off with a bikini shot but I didn’t need the offered dressing gown as Karen and Dean established such a relaxed and professional atmosphere immediately. As another client has said, I don’t think Dean even noticed I wasn’t wearing many clothes as he was so busy making sure each picture was perfect.

The photos in question were simply stunning. I could have bought practically every photo that he took. It was so much of a challenge to get my final list down to six that I had to get extras!

My advice to people thinking about this kind of shoot is to bite the bullet and just book it!! You won’t regret it as it’s fabulous for your confidence, and I’ll have these photos forever to look back on when I’m wrinkly! Thank you so much Dean and Karen 🙂

Ps. I showed my photos to my partner and my parents and they adored them. They couldn’t get over what an amazing job you both did, and everyone demanded copies immediately! I might have to order more soon.”
