Danielle’s parents wanted something different to buy her for her 21st birthday and so they purchased her a glamour/portrait photography session with us. We had just moved from our old studio in Tanah Merah to our new location in Bulimba and Danielle was the third person to be photographed in our new studio which was very exciting for us.
Danielle decided to do a few portraits, a few fantasy style images in the theme of her favourite movies and a little bit of boudoir. She received a beautiful makeover with her session and will also receive a printed photo book with her favourite images.
Jade’s father purchased her a portrait photography session as a Christmas Gift and this week Jade came in and we had a fantastic session with her. She wanted some tasteful portraits that she could show the family plus a few special images just for her. Jade had been wanting to do a portrait photography session for quite a while but had not had the courage to go ahead until her dad purchased her session. We had a lot of fun photographing her and we achieved some awesome results for her which she loves.
Jade will be receiving one of our beautiful 10 image folio boxes with her finished images printed as 8 x 12″ prints and mounted onto 11 x 14″ mounts ready to frame, or they can be kept in the sturdy black folio box.
Portrait photography or portraiture is photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background or context may be included.
The relatively low cost of the daguerreotype in the middle of the 19th century and the reduced sitting time for the subject, though still much longer than now, led to a general rise in the popularity of portrait photography over painted portraiture. The style of these early works reflected the technical challenges associated with long exposure times and the painterly aesthetic of the time. Subjects were generally seated against plain backgrounds and lit with the soft light of an overhead window and whatever else could be reflected with mirrors. Advances in photographic equipment and techniques developed, and gave photographers the ability to capture images with shorter exposure times and the making of portraits outside the studio.
Portrait photography today – with Dean & Karen Agar
Modern portrait photography is so very very exciting. We have at our disposal the most amazing equipment, sets, props and styling to make each image individual and dynamic.
Samantha is a personal development, business and wellness coach and wanted a folio of portrait images to use for business purposes. She wanted a fashion edge to her images rather than the usual happy smily portraits that most of the people in her industry use. She wanted to stand out.
This was a fun session as Sam was very easy to photograph as well as being a very confident and positive person. We love the portraits that we managed to capture for her and thank her for giving us permission to use them here.
Many ladies think that they must be naked or in lingerie to shoot with us. That is very far from the truth as you can see by this session with Sam. Her outfits were very simple but very elegant and effective.
During your session you are welcome to combine several styles of photography according to your personal comfort level, including glamour, boudoir, portraiture, vintage and artistic nude. You are also welcome to bring your husband/partner in for a few romantic images together if you wish. Your session includes wonderful relaxing makeover (hair and makeup) so consider planning a night out that evening to take advantage of your fantastic look.

Elisha’s parents purchased her one of our Sexy Sunday glamour photography sessions for her birthday and this week she came in for her session. She was very nervous and admitted to us that she considered not using the voucher as she was so scared but she came in and absolutely loved her time with us and the images.
We received this wonderful email from her mum, Tracy after the session which we would love to share with you. Tracy was so happy that she booked a session for herself.
“Hi Karen & Dean,
Last night Elisha showed us her finished photos, wow! I just wanted to say a big Thank You to everyone there. She said you all made her feel so comfortable and she is thrilled to bits with her photos. She said it was such a good experience she may even do it again one day (and that she would never have even thought to do it for herself). The whole experience I think has been a great boost to her confidence, especially as she posted a couple on facebook and was amazed at how many of her friends commented on how beautiful she is. So again, thanks for all your expertise and efforts, it has helped her understand and see the beauty we all already see in her.
When you book one of our Sexy Sunday sessions you can choose to shoot glamour, boudoir, nude, pinup, fashion, pregnancy, fitness or you can combine and have some of each. You will receive a beautiful makeover, your session and 4 stunning edited digital images.
