Did you ever wonder why photogenic people always look relaxed, confident and at-ease? Its because they are. It really is that simple. My job is to make you feel the same. To make you feel beautiful and relaxed so that we can create authentic and natural portraits that are yours to keep. Forever.
A photo shoot should be fun!
This is the main ingredient of a successful shoot.
I know that when you book a shoot with me you will feel supported and confident in front of the camera. My sole purpose is to show you at your absolute best! So just relax and have fun with it. If it is your first time, don’t worry! I’m there to take care of you to make sure it’s a fun experience. I will direct you with gentle instructions so you will feel relaxed and at-ease.
We will work together to expose those beautiful images that really capture who you are and how you want to be portrayed. And when all is done and you see the results, you will love the beautiful and natural images we will create together.
A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it
Childbirth is the ultimate statement of femininity. The creation and fostering of a new life is truly a miracle – and one I have had the joy of experiencing twice. Seeing the development of an unborn child during pregnancy and the innocence and of a new born baby is something that I never get tired of. Each family is unique, and I am grateful for the privilege of capturing those unique moments of tenderness and emotion in a new family. There is such tender warmth in a mother-to-be and, although it feels like forever, this moment is fleeting and deserves to be savoured, captured and held for all the years to follow.
In the 7th/8th month there can be no denying what is coming in the near future and the excitement and anticipation of new parents is palpable – making this one of the best times for a maternity shoot.
Making the decision to have a baby is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body
A personal branding shoot is a photo shoot that is customised to fit your brand. After meeting to establish your goals and intentions for the shoot, we will work together to generate a plan to realise them. Once we have explored the essence of your brand, we will discuss how to best represent it, considering shoot locations, visual tone of voice, colours, patterns and anything else that can help you to use the visual language of photography to communicate your brand. If you want, I can even provide professional Stylists and hair and makeup artists to make sure you are looking your absolute best when representing your brand.
You are your brand, and this is all about increasing your brand’s value. After the shoot, you will have access to a portfolio of photographs that you can use on your website, for your social media or anywhere else you need to present yourself, and your brand, at its best.
I don’t go by the rule book. I lead from the heart, not the head
For many women, the thought of a Boudoir shoot can be daunting – but don’t let that get in the way of what will be an amazing and liberating experience! First, let me clarify something.
Boudoir does not equal Nude.
Of course, we can also do tasteful nudes (if that’s your thing) but what we are really talking about here are artful, intimate photos taken in a relaxed setting. It is an opportunity to capture and bring to life an image of you at your most feminine self.
There are many reasons to do a Boudoir shoot – and each person has their own. Maybe to create and keep a permanent record of your intimate self. Or as a personal gift for your partner or to act out a long time fantasy. Perhaps a dare to yourself – just to prove you can. Or maybe just to experience what life may have been like if you had been born a model.
Boudoir is for every body.
Age and body type are irrelevant. Every woman is entitled to see herself through this unique lens – and your comfort is essential for an amazing shoot. Even if the thought of it makes you feel nervous, don’t worry! Before the shoot we will walk through how it works, and what will happen and customize it to fit you and your own comfort zone. This ensures that, while staying within the limits that you set, I can help and direct you to deliver your best!
A boudoir shoot is the ultimate confidence booster. Living proof that you are a beautiful woman, and a force to be reckoned with – even if the only person who ever sees your photos, is you!
It’s not about seducing men. It’s about embracing womanhood
