I read this thought somewhere that 'we don't really exist until someone sees us.' It's what we all want, isn't it? To be seen, to belong, to be witnessed. For our life to not go unnoticed. It's why we couple up, have babies, make love, seek love, join communities, create art, share IT with others: we deeply desire a witness to our existence, for someone to say:
I see you.
Portrait Photography plays a powerful role in that. You won't know until you experience it, but seeing a portrait of yourself can be life-altering. It makes you really look at yourself, where you have avoided to do so. It forces you to let someone else look at you too. It is a courageous act of self-trust and exploration.
A portrait says: You were here, you existed. You loved and were loved.
And it's something I want everyone to experience.
You don't need an occasion for this: your life is the occasion. That you made it this far, that you've grown and taken risks, that you've overcome what you thought you couldn't. That you just. want. to. feel. seen. Everything can be a celebration. Don't wait for a ring, a pregnancy, a new job. We waste so much time waiting for the next thing. You are alive now. You have today. You are standing on so much to be proud of already. That's worthy of being witnessed.
Portraying individuals is truly my life's joy. Making you visible is my strong suit: if you are scared of the camera, worried about posing or think you're too shy for this - I will take all of that off your shoulders. My sessions are easy, fun and unforgettable.
My approach is guided by genuine connection, intimacy and authentic expression.
Forget what you think you know about photography: over here we ditch the notion of what looks 'flattering', instead we focus on feeling good and entirely like ourselves.
If you want to see yourself, I would love to create something special with you. I am a Portrait Photographer in London but available wherever you want me to be!
