I am so thrilled to help you on your journey to creating amazing images for your beautiful brand or personal use.
I know it can feel very intimidating when you are preparing to have your professional photos taken for the first (or even 100th) time.
Do not despair. I am here to guide you. One of my superpowers is kindness and it is my joy to hold your heart during the process to ensure you feel comfortable and connected to the creative process at all times.
Many women feel that they need to be the perfect weight or size, have the trendiest clothes or the most successful business to have professional images taken. However I can assure you (pinkie promise) this is not the case.
It is (very) possible to capture beautiful, affirming images of you that embody your brand EVEN if:
- You are not at your ideal weight
- You don’t have the funds or time to invest in new clothes or accessories
- You believe you are not photogenic
- You have no idea how to pose or what’s your best side
- You are extremely nervous and would rather have root canal than your portrait taken
Things to know:
- It will feel awkward having your photo taken. Some of the poses may feel unnatural but the camera loves them and they often make for the most flattering images.
- Professional make-up will help your face to really pop in the images (essential for connection with potential clients).
- Having your hair styled for the shoot is a worthwhile investment. You are showing up as the VERY best version of yourself.
- You probably already have at least 3 suitable outfits for the shoot (hidden away in your closet).
- Wearing a flattering colour and some jewellery to frame your face will add to the power of your images.
- It is my job to discover the best and most flattering angles for your photographs to ensure you have images that you LOVE.
- I will take many, many photos in our time together. This means we will have a wonderful selection to choose from.
- You will feel totally exhausted but exhilarated after your shoot. I recommend going home after and chill-laxing, ordering take out and sipping on your happy drink of choice.
