I recently enjoyed a fantastic Christmas-themed photo shoot at Manchester-based studio Andrew Wood Photography, and here are some of the festive results. As you can see I’m not one to scrimp on Christmas and I went for full-on cozy Christmas knits!
Once I’d booked in for my shoot and discussed my festive theme in advance, I turned up on the day and enjoyed a glass of bubbly whilst makeup artist and hair stylist Rebecca captured my Christmas vision with soft curls and vintage makeup. Then I headed into the different rooms of the studio which were set up with all the different backgrounds and props that would best suit my styling and theme. Before I started I was worried I’d be really awkward as I’m not a natural in front of a camera, but my photographer Kayleigh made it really easy by giving me loads of creative direction, so I had a really fun time! And it was a great confidence boost too!
A Christmas giveaway
And now as it’s the season of giving I am launching a giveaway to win a photo shoot at Andrew Wood Photography. One lucky winner and two runners up will be able to choose their own photo shoot theme with the Andrew Wood team – it certainly doesn’t need to be a festive one like mine as they do all sorts, from fashion shoots to vintage boudoir shoots or even quirky cosplay.
To enter, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your answer to this question:
- What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
I will select the winner and runners up on 1st December.
The winner will win an hour-long professional makeover and then a photo shoot in your chosen theme/style (with multiple outfit changes), including professional retouching. Plus an A3 print of your favourite shot!
2 runners up will also win an hour-long professional makeover and then a photo shoot in your chosen theme/style (with multiple outfit changes), including professional retouching. Plus an A4 print of your favourite shot!
Terms: Please note that Andrew Wood photography studio is based in Manchester so you’ll need to be able to get there for your photo shoot if you’re a winner (handily there’s actually now a Metrolink stop right outside). Booking the shoot requires a refundable deposit of £25, which you get back on the day (this is just because hair stylists and photographers are brought in especially for you!) and viewing of the shots takes place on a separate appointment.

Thanks Katie- I quite like the cheesy phone one too 🙂
It was lovely to meet you at the studio and of course do your hair and makeup (although making hair like yours look amazing itsn’t hard). I’m glad you enjoyed the shoot, the pictures are stunning! I think I have to agree with the comment above and say that the last one is my fave too.
Aww thanks for the lovely comment Rebecca – and thanks for my gorgeous makeover! X
