Impactful brand and commercial photography for entrepreneurs and businesses, made simple and enjoyable.
"I needed some professional photos for a new website, social media and for general headshots for press and speaking events - selfies weren't really cutting it anymore! I spoke to Victoria who took a lot of time to understand what I was trying to achieve with these photos and what my brand values were. She suggested loads of fab locations, set everything up and off we went for a whole day. It was great fun and Victoria really put me at ease. I have so many great photos to use for different occasions now. If you own a company you really need a set of professional photos and I can't recommend Victoria enough!" Jenny

I'm based in Girvan, South Ayrshire where I have a headshots studio. I typically do location photoshoots and cover all of South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire and West Central Scotland with no additional travel costs - including Glasgow. I also cover the rest of Scotland and the UK.
My studio is approximately 75 minutes from Glasgow City Centre, 45 minutes from Kilmarnock and 35 minutes from Ayr.
“Victoria was great at giving tips and directions to help me make the poses and expressions I wanted. I knew WHAT I wanted to do, but didn’t always know HOW to do it! We had a lot of fun trying different things out and seeing what worked for me.” Sarah
Hello! I’m Victoria.
I tell stories through photography.
Back in 2001, I started a degree in English Language and Literature. Fresh-faced and enthusiastic, I lost myself in words, stories and worlds and when I graduated in 2005, I stumbled straight into the ether of English teaching and bestowed words, stories and worlds onto hundreds of teenagers.
By 2018, stories were no longer enough and I found myself enthralled in photography. People fascinated me and before long I had a company specialising in wedding photography and headshots. In 2020, I was forced to return to teaching. By this point I was in my second year of a Fine Art Photography degree that I didn’t want to give up. So, I didn’t. I struggled through Covid, teaching and my degree.
Flaunt and Flourish was created and shaped to help entrepreneurs and companies tell their true stories. It’s my dream for everyone to be unveiled to the world as they are, not as they feel they should be.
And that’s how I got here.
My teaching career is now firmly behind me. I have a second degree. I have an eye for telling the stories that are easily missed but mean everything and the photography skills to bring you to life.
Your audience seeks access to your world and looks for ways to experience who you are and how you can serve them. With the right professional photography, you have the opportunity to attend to their needs and embrace their desire to experience.
The success of brand and commercial photography depends on your photographer knowing and understanding your brand and its nuances. Every photoshoot is unique and therefore fully tailored to you and your business.
The approach I use to ensure that your photography meets your objectives is:
This is your opportunity to give me a summary of the purpose for arranging photography and your overall intention or target.
I’ll request links for your digital marketing materials and spend time researching the current visual imagery of the brand.
30-minute Planning Session
Using your objectives for booking a photoshoot and the information gleaned during research, we’ll generate a flexible plan of action and set a date.
I will arrive with everything I need to carry out the plan discussed in our planning session and capture the images which meet your requirements.
Edited photographs will be completed within 2 weeks of the photoshoot and available for digital download.
"I hate getting my picture taken but I couldn't believe how relaxed I felt so quickly working with Victoria. I actually enjoyed it. They have also transformed the impact of my social posts and website with so much positive feedback from clients! I've even booked her now for regular shoots over the coming year." Paul
I don't have a tripod, can I still book a Virtual Photoshoot?You can! You don’t need a tripod. A filled tinned can is perfect, so if you have any canned goods in your cupboards, pick your favourite and grab yourself an elastic band, hair bobble or stretchy hair and and we’ll make it work. Gather a pile of books or magazines too - or a large box or two. We’ll run through this on our Nail the Technology call to ensure you’re all set up way before the shoot.
Where do we take the photos?The most popular option is to have your photos taken at home but if you have an Instagramable work space (or just feel super comfortable there, want to use it to show people how and where you work), then that totally works too. Outdoors is even an option - but we do need a data connection and the stronger your internet, the higher quality your photographs.
Why do I need an internet or data connection?The photographs are taken via the app and because it’s the way we “virtually” connect, we need a data connection to maintain that connection. If your connection is quite weak or poor, it can cause the images to pixelate and while that is fixable with editing, it can affect the image quality. If you’re worried you don’t have a strong enough data connection, arrange a call here and we’ll run a quick test for you. When you arrange a technology check call the cost will be deducted when you book or refunded if you’re unable to go ahead with the shoot.
