Isle of Wight Portrait Photographer
It’s the holidays and I’m waiting for my family to arrive from Derbyshire. They’ll arrive from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight via the ferries.
Waiting under the Ryde Pier, I watch the seagulls. They watch me.
24 hours early I’d contacted Jess on the spur of the moment – let’s meet up!
The power of saying, ‘yes!’.
We often worry so badly, we sabotage ourselves. Ruining the moment before it begins.
What if I feel foolish? What shall I do with my hands! What if my bum looks big?
Over-thinking. Worrying the details. Doubting. Fearing the unknown.
My advice to Jess – just let the portrait session naturally evolve.
And see what you can create in 1 hour – all it takes is a big heart, an ability to play, and a willingness to grasp new adventures.
Jess is now a brand influencer who became a mode, although she was new to the industry when we took these photographs. She creates her wardrobe and style by hand. Spending time putting outfits together so they look beautiful. These things are important. They are evidence of the creative life she leads.
You can see life shining from her smile. Her eyes are full of laughter.
Had a great test shoot with Amanda yesterday! She is very professional and very friendly, and had some great ideas. She produces some wonderful images and would love to work with her again, would definitely recommend her!
Thank YOU so much
