This is a unique take on the head shot, a studio-like session, but more candid. Through my work in photography, I have discovered that unravelling and retelling a story is a big part of what I do.
As a single mother who chose to stay home with her son and build a career that honoured my deep needs for attachment, I have a soft spot for women and how they struggle to balance meaningful work with family life. I am also passionate about helping women to define their on-line presence / image by honouring their unique gifts and how they show up and portray themselves in their work / craft / career / art form. As women, we often struggle with the ideas of beauty or presentability. I aim to show you off as you are, radiantly you! While I am not at all against using lighting, make up or styling to help bring out the best in you, I have learned that we gain a lot of confidence and can portray a much more honest and accurate image of ourselves and what we have to offer, when we feel safe, honoured and heard.
I had a lovely time with my friend, Rachel Sanders. http://rachelsanders.com/about/
We walked up to a local cafe in our neighbourhood, sat and talked over tea, then meandered through the streets and parks back home.
Cafe Conversations are 1 to 2 hours
A variation of a candid available light / studio style session / interview. We meet in a cafe of your choice that has good available light, nice windows, we talk about what you do, how you feel about how you look and show up in the world.
It’s a great way to create safe place to express, show some vulnerability, let your unique personality, expressive style, and story shine. Who are you? What do you do? Why do you do it?
