Portraits in my living room
With a twinkle in her eyes, freshly styled hair and gorgeous outfits, Solene met me in Ryde for our first portrait session in my living room.
All it takes to create serene gazes in her photos is my quiet direction and knack of drawing out laughter with confidence and surety.
I moved to creating window lit portraits in my home when I noticed my models were turning blue in the winter months, without realising it, I’d found my passion – connecting with others and using my photographic skills to help others feel confident about having their photograph taken. I’m proud of the number of friends I’ve made through photography.
Spring feels like it might make an early arrival, so it’s time to pick up my camera again and plan my sessions for 2017. Picking dusty rose flowers to match Solene’s outfit, pausing to swirl tulle around her feet, gently guiding Solene’s expression that is engaging and confident.
Unusually for me, I finished the session early, a testament to Solene’s ability to interpret my vision. In no time at all, I realised my ability to support, guide and connect with people transforms into images that shine; my hope is that Solene is bowled over with her pictures.
It’s no secret that I strive to create portraits that mirror the beauty I see inside: Solene’s humour, kindness and intelligence. The serenity in these portraits shine with natural grace and elegance, all with fresh-faced beauty, and they are pictures that family love to keep, tucked away to share with friends.
