Ann contacted me because she wanted to celebrate one of those milestone birthdays with an elegant portrait of herself that she could gift to her husband. As you know, I LOVE this kind of commission. From the moment I met Ann at her pre-shoot consultation, I was struck by her warmth and joie de vivre and I knew we were in for a fun “Couture Portrait” shoot! I think you’ll agree that Ann proves you can be fabulous at any age!
Here is a selection of Ann’s gorgeous portraits – I’m so glad she chose to celebrate in this way.
While Ann was being pampered by Debbie, I sorted through the suitcase full of clothes she had brought with her (she was ready to tell her husband she was taking clothes to the charity shop if he noticed her lugging it out to the car!)
Having chosen the outfits together, I was able to design the shoot using backdrops that complemented her wardrobe, and the decor in her living room, which is where she planned to display her portrait.
We finished with this gorgeous, soft green chiffon wrap.
Such a beautiful, big hearted lady, I feel her warmth shines through in these prints. Happy Birthday, Ann!
Jo – I’m delighted with your work and can’t wait to show my family.”
