Comparing ourselves to others and body shame is very common in this day and age, especially with all the pressures to look like the media's idea of perfect. Throughout my career I've come across more and more people who hate the way they look on camera, which has encouraged me to offer healing photography sessions for anyone battling with body-confidence issues.
In these sessions I hold a safe space for women and men to freely express their natural inner and outer beauty. As someone who's battled with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) for many years, I understand how scary being in front of the lens can be, and how difficult it is facing those negative inner thoughts we can have about ourselves. In these sessions I aim to change that through patience, compassion, figuring out which position and angle your body feels most comfortable, and LOTS of talking!
No one session is the same as each are crafted to suit your personal needs. Drop me a message if you'd like to find out more.
"I recently had a headshot session with Amy and admitted that I'm not naturally comfortable in front of a camera. She immediately made me feel at ease and we chatted for over an hour while she quietly and unobtrusively took photos, gently guiding me and helping me feel at ease.
They are some of the best photos I've ever had of myself and I am so thrilled. I will definitely hire Amy again for any photography work I might need.
If you want someone to capture not just your picture but a bit of your personality too, Amy is the photographer for you."
