And this is why…
As much as I love being behind the camera, I also like to spend time in front of the camera, and I am often asked why?
As a photographer I spend hours behind the camera capturing inspired moments…. Those moments that are reminders of a sweet moment shared or just simply a photo that you can nod at, and think I look damn fine
Life is a gift to be celebrated, full of quirky moments and stages of our lives to remember and treasure. Personally, I am so grateful for old photos, grateful I have taken time to capture me over the years, whether it is through a photoshoot or of great times with special people. I never tire of going back in time to remember those precious moments, which brings joy to my heart. Every. Single. Time.
Every day is a memory in the making!
So, it does break my heart when I hear people say they don’t have a special occasion or a reason for a photoshoot… You don’t need a special occasion, having a photoshoot is a special occasion and you (and your loved ones) are worth celebrating!
Often, we have a one-sided view of ourselves, our own view. A photoshoot is an empowering experience that can that can change the way you see yourself. A photo session will help you reconnect with yourself. It will open your eyes up to your own gorgeousness. A beautifully captured photo will show your individuality, show you how far you have come and will build confidence. A photoshoot should be seen as a celebration of you!
Having a photo session creates a record of your life and legacy no matter whether you are 20 or 70. Your life has a story; your life is a story. A photo session will illustrate your journey through life… remind you of the nature of our physical changes, our physical attributes through time and highlight our resilience and the timelessness of our inner selves.
There is magic in appreciating all that we have achieved and who you have become!
Our busy daily life and routines often prevent us from taking time out and taking care of ourselves. Planning a photoshoot is the perfect occasion to celebrate you and take some time for much needed self-care.
See a photoshoot as a well-deserved time out. Plan a massage and a makeover. Then enjoy being a super model for a couple of hours and complete your day by celebrating with a night out with friends or a loved one!
You can even bring along a loved one, the kids or your pet! It’s the perfect time to spend time together capturing wonderful moments to treasure for years to come!
Having a photoshoot with me, is a whole loooooot of fun! It’s not often you get to play model in front of a photographer…. It’s a fun and empowering experience, of course beside the experience you will get some some amazing photos to share with friends and family for many years to come.
So, what are you waiting for?! Send me an email and we can start planning your session!
I’ll bring the camera and the laughs, and you bring your amazing self (selves) and start celebrating you!
The days are long, but the years are short. Let’s capture the beauty today, as you are for your children to pass onto their children. Or just for yourself to celebrate right now.
