THE LAIR, STUDIO

The Lair is an evolving space of the beautiful bizzare. Bookings are in two hour sessions, as there are various places of interest to take your photographs. There is a new 2.3metre arch with draped netting next to the enchanted trees and goddess chair. Model Charlotte is featured in the room with the Victorian styled dividers. Vintage wedding dresses are dropped up behind a black and white sequin fabric, perfect for an Alice in Wonderland backdrop! See the ‘Creative Services‘ page for more images to the Lair and the ‘Costume and Styling Options’ for attire.

PHOTO SHOOTING

Ana shoots her photography with a Canon Mark III, utilising different modes, all angles with her camera to get the most out of the scene. References are on hand in the studio as cues for poses with props galore at your disposal. Creative portraits with whimsical to fashion flair is what Ana loves best.
