"I can make you feel and look Amazing! Finally you will have photos you can be proud of" - Laura Rachel
It's not every day we can get the whole family together for a photo shoot - so make it special! It's also not every day you stop and realise how amazing you are and indulge in a papering session with beautiful images. Make the most of you, make the most of now.
It's easy to avoid the camera and it's common to feel shy or 'un-photogenic' it's not your job to look good, it's mine to make you look good. I will guide you through posing, without rushing through, I will take the time for you to feel comfortable and show you techniques to enhance and flatter. You will look and feel amazing!
Why I do what I do
Years ago I was afraid of the camera. I was photographing weddings and family portraits and I was telling them how good they looked. I genuinely felt passionate about creating beautiful memories - but I didn't believe it in myself. There wasn't enough education on posing during photo shoots. I had with my then boyfriend (now husband!) I felt like a whale and he looked like a grape on a fork. It wasn't flattering! I was ashamed to be on the other side of the camera - I even referred to it as the 'wrong' side of the camera!
But what happened was I no longer existed in photos. My family saw a gap in images I took at events, my boyfriend was the only one in our holiday snaps. I just couldn't face it! So I went on a journey. I wanted to learn how to look good in photos so I could feel confident. Once I learnt the basics I embraced it. I went through changes in weight (good and bad) and eventually realised - this is who I am.
As Joey Tribiani says, "I'm curvy and I like it!"
Because I know how to pose, because I know my husband loves me regardless, I'm happy with photos of me. We have so many photographs from our wedding day where we are genuinely happy because we didn't let the camera ruin the moment.
Even the side on pictures where I have a double chin! I don't care! I love them! Because it's a moment between me & my grandma. I won't get that moment back so I treasure that.
So I invite you to exist in photos!
