HOW DID THE SHOOT MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
I wasn’t really sure what to expect and was quite nervous but I knew that Louise would produce beautiful images and would make me feel safe and secure to be myself.
HOW DID LOUISE WORK WITH YOU DURING YOUR SHOOT TO MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE?
During the photo shoot Lou made me feel comfortable by playing my favourite music in the background and then to start off we had a half hour of just playful photos that relaxed me completely. Lou also would demonstrate and model for me poses that I could try which was extremely helpful.
WHAT WAS A MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM THE SHOOT?
I really loved when Lou got under the sparkly material with me to take photo’s, it was something different and I just remember being totally relaxed, laughing and having fun the whole time.
WHAT DID YOUR PARTNER THINK ABOUT THE PHOTO’S?
My husband thought I looked hot and sexy in the photo’s and he loved them all!
WOULD YOU DO A SIMILAR TYPE OF SHOOT LIKE THIS AGAIN IN THE FUTURE WITH EMOTIVE IMAGES?
Yes I would definitely do it again in the future, it was lots of fun, it made me face some of my fears and overcome them. Basically it did wonders for my self esteem and it’s lovely to have these images of myself at this time of my life that one day I will pass down to my children and grandchildren.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE BEING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA DOING THIS TYPE OF SHOOT?
I am very shy when I first meet someone and it takes time for me to come out of my shell, so to be in front of the camera was extremely difficult for me especially with the videographer and make up artist there watching everything.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE BEING PAMPERED WITH HAIR AND MAKEUP DURING THE DAY OF THE SHOOT?
I would consider myself a tomboy that rarely wears dresses or skirts and as a mother of four children I very rarely get dressed up and pampered so it was something really special to have my hair and makeup done. I lapped it up and enjoyed every minute of it :0)
WHAT EMOTIVE IMAGES PRODUCT HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO DISPLAY YOUR IMAGES?
I chose to display my images in the very beautiful and stylish Portrait Suite that has a new cover that I love. I think it’s brilliant value.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT YOU WILL SAY ABOUT THESE PHOTOS IN 5 OR 10 YEARS TIME?
I’m actually very proud of the images and I believe I will still be very proud of them in 5 – 10 yrs time. I think Lou took photos of me that are stylish and will stand the test of time. The images of me jumping and having fun is a true representation of my personality so that will never date.
WHAT SURPRISED YOU THE MOST ABOUT THIS PHOTO SHOOT?
I was surprised at how much fun I had at the photo shoot and how Lou managed to capture these beautiful images in a split second with ease.
WHAT WERE YOUR FINAL THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS SHOOT, ONCE IT WAS ALL OVER?
I loved it and felt on a high afterwards. Lou is very professional but at the same time she was able to have fun with me. She made the whole experience such a positive one that I want every women to experience it.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO OTHER WOMEN WHO ASK YOU ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY SAY THAT THEY “COULD NEVER LOOK LIKE THAT” THEMSELVES?
I would say “JUST DO IT, you won’t regret it!” and also “If I can do it, anyone can do it!”
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PHOTO OUT OF THE ENTIRE SHOOT?
Hmmmmm…. That is a really hard question to answer, we did a few different outfit changes so I have a favourite from each. Overall, I can’t believe how nice I look in all the images.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS TYPE OF SHOOT TO YOUR FRIENDS?
Yes, definitely. I already have :0)
WHY DO YOU THINK WOMEN OF ANY AGE, SHAPE, SIZE SHOULD DO THIS TYPE OF SHOOT?
I believe we all have insecurities about our bodies and how we look, I know I do. In doing a photo shoot like this, it makes you realize just how beautiful you really are, plus Lou brings out the best in you and that shines through in each and every image.
I WOULD LOVE A TESTIMONIAL FOR EMOTIVE IMAGES IF YOU ARE HAPPY TO PROVIDE ONE BELOW:
I had a “Transform Me” photo shoot with Emotive Images. I am a tomboy, the type of person that is not comfortable in front of the camera and I have complexes about certain parts of my body (as we all do) but Louise made me feel completely at ease, she helped me to overcome my fears and I learned to let go. I felt sexy and beautiful and had so much fun. I highly recommend that all ladies should have a photo shoot with Emotive Images, you will have a life changing experience, it will do wonders for your self esteem and you will have forever more the most amazing gorgeous images of yourself.
