  • 5 star review  I had a Serenity Boudoir session yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are thinking 'I hate having my photo taken, I can't do that' then think again because you can. I'm never in any family photos I always take them so avoid having my photos taken. However this was great fun, John and Debbie put you at ease and after the initial worries you will relax and enjoy. You have your hair and make up done in the salon then it's up to you, dress up, dress down, undress!! do whatever you like 🙂 definitely give it a try

    I can not put into words how wonderful the experience was for me. I decided to have a session done for my husbands Xmas present as he is always saying how gorgeous he thinks I am, but I’m (as most women are) my worst critic! From the moment I met with John and Debbie I felt relaxed, even though posing in lingerie isn’t exactly the most natural of situations to be in, it genuinely felt like it was! I felt confident and comfortable, and totally in safe hands. Debbie was incredible at making me feel like a million dollars, while John was professional and respectful. We had such a giggle too. I didn’t want it to end! I purchased the Luxury Pack, which I felt offered great value. I thought that the experience and the way it made me feel as a women was worth 10 times what it cost me to be honest. The quality of the large framed picture as well as the mounted images in the box (which is beautifully presented) is amazing, I couldn’t have asked for better. The pictures are so beautiful and tasteful, my husband loves them, but what he loved the most is how empowered it made me and how it improved my body confidence. I honestly can not recommend John and Debbie enough. The whole experience was so much more than I expected. Thank you both so much ❤️

  • 5 star review  I just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much to you and John for my Bridal Boudoir shoot. The whole experience was fantastic, from chatting with the girls in the salon while having my hair done, feeling pampered getting my make up done, to the shoot itself. I felt completely relaxed with you and John, you are a fab couple and really help to put me at ease. I felt really confident and when I came to see the results I was blown away. The only hard part of the whole experience was trying to narrow down the choice of photos. I surprised my husband to be on the morning of our wedding with one print in a frame and got a very appreciative text message but when he saw the full album his face was a picture! Thank you so much!! xx

    5 star review  Had a shoot for my burlesque portfolio today, John and Debbie were extremely welcoming and so lovely to work with! The hair and makeup ladies were wonderful too, I had so much fun and felt very comfortable around them all. I can't wait to see my photos and come back again for another session!

    thumb Miça Hurley

    5 star review  I had a photo shoot with John and Debbie 2 weeks ago and was so surprised at how at ease they made me feel so quickly! Not just any couple could do this sort of thing and they are fantastic at what they do! They find inner confidence you didn't know you had. I had a consultation with Debbie last week and she was so relaxed and helpful. She didn't put any pressure on you to buy the pictures, which I have known other companies do. I received my pictures today and can't stop looking at them as I can't believe they are me! Thank you so much John and Debbie. I can't recommend them any higher! Perfect service from start to finish!

Client Reviews

I can’t recommend a session with Serenity highly enough. From the moment I contacted Debbie I felt like I was talking to a friend. Despite feeling very nervous, I thoroughly enjoyed the session, John and Debbie are so friendly and professional, and to be honest, despite John being a bloke, it felt like he was one of the girls! I came away from the session with a huge smile on my face and my confidence was sky high, it was an amazing experience! I’ve been recommending this to all my friends (girls & boys!), and I totally recommend a session at Serenity to everyone!


I wanted to get a nice surprise for my fiancee for a Christmas present. I have no confidence in myself, I hate my picture taken because I don’t like the way I look. I’m a size 18 and I’m no oil painting, but the minute I stepped in the studio and met John and Debbie, all my hesitation and worry had gone. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to do my hair and make up. I cannot thank them all enough for making me feel better about myself. I felt comfortable and confident and I can’t remember the last time I felt like that. When I went to see the pictures I was speechless at the end result, to see myself like that and to know I went out of my comfort zone, it was absolutely worth it to see how the end result was. It’s given me back confidence in myself and for that I cannot thank you all enough xx

Laurahappy client

What a great fun afternoon I had, so much so that I have booked a second session. I was really nervous about taking my clothes off, especially as I am the wrong side of 40. (albeit partial) They are a great team to work with and really put you at ease from the moment you go into the studio, I don’t know if it was just our personalities but felt like they were more like friends i would like to socialise with rather than a company fulfilling a service.

Highly recommended for making you feel sexy again.

Thanks guys.

Almost every person who contacts Serenity are body conscious, and many want to lose those extra pounds, or have a nip and tuck here and there, however there are those at the other end of the scale too who would love extra curves. Society puts pressure on us, and we then put pressure on ourselves. Sadly ladies can be their worst critics and the critics of other women too. It may surprise you that not a single photograph on our web site is of a professional model. But they look it don’t they? Don’t let your fears stop you from reaching your goals.
