Shine Sml


[shahyn] verb to give forth or glow with light; shed or cast light.

I love making women feel good about themselves… I love fashion and always have and photography for me is more than a job, it’s life itself. I choose to concentrate on creating portraits of women because I know how is to be a woman, a crazy mix of fragility, strength with a big dose of love thrown in. 

I want my photos to reflect the real you with lots of heart. 

I want you to see you, the way I see you. 

I want you to shine!


Shine is s a fashion inspired portrait tailor-made for you, where you and your loved ones are the inspiration to create timeless beautiful images with a contemporary edge that could easily grace the cover of your favourite magazine. 

Your private shoot can happen in one of Paris’s chicest hotels, in a private location or on the streets of Paris and is a moment of French glamour, femininity and celebration of your beauty.

Complete with a fashion hair and make-up artist, cool art direction and loads of fun and laughter. The shoot lasts up to 4 hours but the memories and photos will last a lifetime. 

Your favourite 15 images will be printed in a boxed folio collection on fine art paper, signed and dated and you will receive the full edited collection of high resolution files from the shoot for your personal use. The beautiful linen box tied with ribbon, and a USB with your files will be delivered to your door anywhere in the world.

there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.???
