Flow Posing & Guided Photo Shoot
"I'm just not photogenic "....Well, most of us aren't and looking great in photos isn't about being naturally photogenic. It's about knowing your body and how to pose to accentuate your best assets and how to obscure the rest. It's about knowing what angles to photograph from and choosing the right camera lenses and how to shape the light around your features. But the expression must be real for the connection to be made on camera so ultimately it's about trust. Because when you trust us to know that you're in good hands, you can feel RELAXED & CONFIDENT in front of the camera; and that's when your natural self comes through with beautiful expressions that show your sparkle inside.
You can relax knowing you’re in good hands and we’re going to guide you through it all.
