What happened to your identity? You’re focused on raising your children, being the best wife possible, excelling in your job, or being the best friend to your best friends. Or trying to do it all. Do you sometimes feel like you’ve lost your connection to the person you used to be? Let me tell you about me…
I know how you feel because I’ve felt it too. After leaving my first career to stay at home with my kids, the next 11 years saw me completely focused on my family. I was happy and fulfilled, yet somewhere along the way I had lost touch with the real me.
Until a few years later, when I did a glamour photo shoot. It was to celebrate me turning 40 and yes – the shoot was booked and paid for by my husband! I went along thinking it was going to be solely for his benefit but how wrong I was.
Those portraits remind me of a time when I felt strong, confident and beautiful. The photographer helped me to reconnect with myself and to see myself as she (a complete stranger) saw me. That 2-hour photo session was powerful and transformative. And it was a pivotal moment because right then I decided that I wanted all women to experience the same thing. I immediately focused my business entirely on women and created the tagline ‘Focused on you’.
I see your beautiful
Since then I have photographed dozens of women of all shapes, sizes, age and life stage. Every single one of them arrived at my studio with insecurities, telling me what they didn’t like about themselves, why they’re not photogenic etc. I get it – there are things I don’t like about myself too.
I’m here to tell you that it’s OK and that you too can look radiant, gorgeous and confident today. I see the beauty in you and I know how to bring it out.
Your photo shoot will be a transformational experience for you. It’s your job to help with the planning and to show up and enjoy the day. It’s my job to give you a fantastic makeover, direct you through the shoot, and use my knowledge of lighting and posing to bring out the best in you. The result will be the most beautiful photos you have seen of yourself.
Do something lasting, meaningful and special for yourself
So in telling you about me, it’s really all about you! I want to show you how beautiful you are; to help you reconnect with the woman you see in your portraits and be awed by her again. Make time for yourself as you are right now and capture it forever. Please contact me for a consultation and together we will design your dream photo shoot.
