Portraits Of You

Let’s Design an exciting experience and Photoshoot for you!


A luxurious, feel good & self-loving photoshoot experience!


With your trusted Award Winning Portrait Photographer in London, Laura Shimili Mears Photography

Welcome, I would love to tell your story and take the best portrait ever taken of you!

Give you a portrait experience that will take you on a journey.

Let me guess. Do you think you are not photogenic or your photos don’t come out well.

Are you too self-conscious.

Let me also say that most people do and they stop there.

They feel that staying safe and in the same comfort zone will serve them better than taking action and being loud and proud.

I would like to invite you to change that. I would like to invite you to be part of an incredible group of women that want to take risks, want to be visible and want to experience something unique, creative, breaking tabous and stereotypes. 

I want to invite you to join a group of empowered women. 

Would you like to join me in this journey?

As a photographer I love to create and to create something tailored and unique for you.

The portrait experience is an uplifting and empowering experience that has only the best ingredients:

  • A makeover with styling and professional hair & makeup by the fabulous make-up artist I work with.
  • A photoshoot that you will remember and that will create an amazing positive, enhancing and empowering experience for you.

We will design it together from the start, with your values, your soul and your dreams taken into account.

After the photoshoot we will get together again for a viewing session where you get to see and select your favourite portraits.

A unique experience that will change you.

What is the portrait experience about?

It is about connection, celebrating and trusting that there is more.

The photoshoot is an expression of who you are and how you feel to be at this point in your life.

Whether you are celebrant or overcoming a challenge, or you have moved on to the next chapter in your life and you want to celebrate this precious moment in time.

From the very first moment we speak on the phone to the last one when you leave the studio after the photoshoot I will guide you and enhance your experience with my skills and years of working with people and posing them for the most amazing photographs of them.

Not only that, the experience continues when you see your images in front of you after the photoshoot and I show how beautifl you are!

The effect continues when you share them with your friends and family and everytime you glance at them and feel the power of being you and being celebrated.

Before & After the photoshoot

How do we design it together?



We design the photoshoot together from your vision.

We discuss wardrobe, colours and styles.

I am the technician and you are the creative director.

I have plenty of ideas, skills and tools to execute your vision. Lighting, posing these are areas I will foresee to make sure it all looks perfect and you look the best version of you!


The Portrait Experience

Expect a day to remember. How you felt and how it changed from apprehension to letting go.

In the studio everything will be ready for you. The make-up artist will start with your hair styling and will then move on to your makeup. Be prepared to take away tips on your skincare and makeup routine.

Your personal photoshoot will begin as we work through the different outfits.

There are refreshments available and at the end maybe a glass to celebrate and fully take in the whole amazing day? 


Your Portraits

After the photoshoot we will book in a date to view your portraits on zoom. Be prepared to fall in love with all of them.

When you are ready, you can select the portraits you want to take home with you and to be part of your beautiful folio box. 

How many you choose, is entirely up to you.

My job is to create work that you will love and will want to buy all. 

A stunning Folio Box with your Portraits

Keep-sake box

The portraits of you that you will take home, will be presented in a folio box that is a beautiful keep-sake.

Final editing

After the viewing I will finalise the portraits you have selected and do the final edits to them.

In your home

I will send the folio box to your home for you to enjoy and display in the pride of place.

“Laura is a great photographer. I had an amazing experience having a portrait shoot. Afterwards, I had a large selection of images to choose from, including the best photo ever taken of me. Thank you Laura!”

“Laura makes having your pictures taken feel much less of a chore. She also provides great photos. For those of us who do not consider ourselves photogenic, that’s a super power.”
