From the moment my daughter and I walked into Abigails office we felt welcome. We were greeted with warm smiles and a wonderful lady helped do our hair and make up . we had lots of laughs and spent a fantastic mom and daughter morning together. Abigail made us feel like supermodels. Right from the way we needed to pose to the dressing up. As for the final photographs, they were amazing, thank you Abigail for the wonderful experience, I can’t wait to book our next shoot. It will definitely be with you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gift of my makeover shoot! As a new mom to twins, just getting out of my pj’s everyday is a major feat. So having my hair and make-up done was such a treat. And then your professionalism and guidance during the shoot made me feel like a supermodel. I knew exactly what you wanted from me and you made me feel totally at ease. And the end result … Wow! Thank you for making me feel beautiful and giving me my confidence back. And for inspiring me to get out of my pj’s and make a small effort everyday. Cos that’s sometimes all it takes
I was so incredibly impressed with the quality of images I got from my beauty shoots with Abigail. I have a history of modelling and have never liked any of the pictures of myself. Abigail made me feel immediately comfortable and relaxed and I think that really showed in the pictures. The whole experience was great fun and left me feeling and looking like a million bucks! I’d recommend her to anyone!
WOW Abigail, you are a master cratfswoman! I had SUCH a wonderful time yesterday, you made me feel very comfortble and special! I have already recommended you to a client of mine, she will be contacting you shortly.
On behalf of Tammy and myself, I would like to thank you for our makeover and photoshoot. Tammy couldn’t have asked for a better pre-birthday gift. We both loved our hair and makeup. You have really brought across a more soft look, and had given us both a workout with those awkward poses, that end up looking fabulous! Keep up your amazing work, and your vibrant personality!
Tammy & Simone
What a treat to be photographed by you – I haven’t had so much fun in a long time! I really felt pampered and looked after, not only during the hair and make up session, but especially by you during the shoot. It was non-threatening, confidence-boosting, funny and totally enjoyable. You really do have an amazing skill in getting the best out of us ordinary folk and making us look and feel like super-models. Thank you Abigail for everything that you put into your work. Your enthusiasm for life is contagious and we see ourselves catching it through your lens. What a blessing.
Optional Wardrobe Styling By Tracy Gold
A Personal Stylist optional extra includes a discounted wardrobe styling consultation with renowned stylist, designer and fashion columnist, Tracy Gold, prior to your shoot.
She will teach you what works for you, what doesn’t and why, according to your body shape, personality and preferred style.
You will walk away with the skills, tips & knowledge to shop for and choose the clothes and colours that compliment you in the best way!
From now on, you’ll shop and dress with confidence and know how to maintain your camera-ready look every day!
Once Tracy has helped you choose your outfits for the shoot, you’ll bring your professionally selected wardrobe items to the studio where you’ll receive professional hair styling & makeup as discussed at our pre-shoot consultation.
I’ll then guide you with my camera coaching where I will teach you the poses, postures and other tips and tricks for getting the best in-camera shots.
