A portrait of Jacqui Lofthouse

Jacqui Lofthouse is a respected author and writing coach who recently got in touch as she needs an up-to-date professional photograph for her new book which is soon to be published and her new website. As it happens she'd seen some of my photos before following an event I photographed a while ago at the RAC club.

Jacqui opted for the 2.5 hour portrait package so that we could try out various different styles and approaches at a more leisurely pace. This was great because it meant we could do some classic studio-based portraits as well as some environmental portraiture. (It also meant we could capture some of the rest of the family with any time we had remaining!)

My personal favourite is the photograph above - I love her natural pose and the bookshelves give a bit of context without being too overt about her vocation.


  1. Thanks for a great experience of being photographed Richard! I've very much enjoyed looking at the photographs and am now spoilt for choice... Love many of them and there's definitely a perfect one for the website and the book. I adore those of the children of course; very thrilled, thank-you!

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed the experience Jacqui but more importantly I'm delighted you're happy with the end results. Looking forward to hearing which images make the final cut!

    All the best
