Portraiture photography with Desi Fontaine

Portraiture photography continues to fascinate Desi from behind the camera, capturing the personality and the essence of people.  Seeing clients’ reactions and emotions is always an uplifting experience for all. 

Pre-shoot sessions

A pre-shoot meeting or telephone discussion is advised and welcomed so you can see Desi’s work, talk through any styling or any props you may need, and see of how your photographs can be presented.

Photography sessions

Sessions usually take place in Desi’s Studio.  The Studio is light and comfortable for visitors and for clients during the shoot.  The Studio has a private garden where outdoor shots can be taken, if you wish or you may wish to choose a favourite location.  Sessions can take place on weekdays, weekends and on Bank Holidays.   The session will normally last for around one and half hours, depending on the shots required.

Viewing sessions

After the portraiture photography session, you may return for your private viewing session.  This is where you can choose your favourite images.

Photography sessions on location

Desi accepts family commissions. She will travel abroad to photograph clients on holiday or for a special celebration.

Appointments and Fees

All photography sessions are by appointment only. Whilst appointments often book up some way in advance, clients often need to move bookings and there may be an appointment available sooner for you. The fee for the session is payable at the time of booking.


48 hours notice is required in the event of a cancellation, otherwise a 50% cancellation fee is applied.

Presentation of photographs

There are many different presentation choices available at the Studio. From albums to large wall hanging display in contemporary, traditional or distressed finishes in metal or wooden frames.  Or, if you prefer, you can choose your photographs to be placed onto canvas.  Smaller sized portraits are available as gifts or so you can display the photographs in your homes and offices. Special high quality albums are available to buy.
