beautiful portraiture for women, for the family & for business

I'm Dorset Portrait Photographer Belinda McCarthy, based in Shillingstone, North Dorset.
I specialise in a highly unobtrusive & cinematic documentary photography approach, also known as reportage or photojournalism. and elegant makeover studio portraiture.

I run a beautiful studio in Dorset, specialising in timeless, beautiful portraits for women of every age. As a specialist in women's portraiture, I've learnt how to pose every size and shape in a flattering and natural way, as well as how to help women boost their self-esteem through portrait images.

With hair, makeup & styling in-house, our portrait sessions are more like spa sessions than photoshoots. We'll create the most beautiful images of you that you've ever imagined owning - and that you'll be proud to pass on to your family for generations to come.
