So have you ever thought about having a photoshoot but you have some anxieties or are unsure about it? Let me try and help you…..
I don’t know what to do with myself….
I understand that the general public are not all professional models, so I am here to gently guide you on your photoshoot to help you get the most flattering angles for your body. I will help you to feel relaxed with my gentle and bubbly personality and direct you with confidence so you get the most out of your photoshoot, but I’m happy for you to pose as you like and discuss ideas.
I don’t like having my photo taken…….
After I had my children I had gained extra weight and I hated having my photo taken, so I do understand how you feel. I do take a natural approach to my work and never force anyone to do what they don’t want to do (Babies included) My warm and kind personality tends to put people at ease as well as my experience so fear not, I will work with you to get the images you want. Just look how confident everyone looks on my portfolio and be assured it’s not as bad as you may think it will be. You don’t have to show off your photos to anyone and ask me if you do not wish for your photos to be on my portfolio and I will not use them. I can competently use light and posing tools as well as editing techniques to really make your images shine if you are very nervous about having your photo being taken, make sure you voice your concerns with me so I know how to help you and make the best out of the experience for you as I can’t read minds!
I don’t know what to wear…..
In my planning guide I have lots of information to help you prepare for your photoshoot and get the most of your experience, you will get this upon your booking process. Make sure you feel completely comfortable in your clothes so you can feel good or this will reflect in your behaviour and your photos.
I’m worried my children will misbehave…..
I am a parent myself and a trained childcare worker with experience working with children since I was 15 years old, so I am comfortable around children which means I usually can assess what type of child you have in the first few minutes of entering my studio and how I should conduct myself around them. I always help guide busy and energetic children and I have managed to photograph the most challenging children successfully. Please try and not stress, I am such a relaxed person and I believe in positive energy, I want you all to have fun so its okay if your children are lively. If you have any concerns please voice these so we can work as a team and get the most out of your experience!
I’m worried about my safety….
There have been plenty of stories we all see online, but with my background working with children I have been assessed and had all my checks. I am a female photographer and I live in the centre of town, I can assure you that you are safe and I encourage you to bring a chaperone even as an adult. I believe in safety first and I am fully trained in Newborn posing and safety and have my studio PAT tested, a mini fire extinguisher on hand and am insured as I take safety and security seriously.
Talk to me, I can’t read your mind and anything you say to me I will keep confidential because as a human myself I would hate to be mistreated also! Let’s do this together so we can have a successful photoshoot.
So I hope this helps curb your anxieties and always you to trust me, so get in touch and book your portrait session today!
Love and Light, Victoria.
