Do you hate pictures of yourself? Do you believe you look terrible in every photo? Do you want to overcome and move past those negative feelings?
A wellness portrait session is a mindful, self-esteem-based photo-shoot, incorporating supportive, theraputic conversation and portrait photography. It's specifically for people who feel deep dread, intense dislike, sadness, or even fear about getting their pictures taken.
We begin with a suportive discussion about your challenges and insecurities around having your photos taken. Then we focus on healthy, postive ways to move forward.
When you book your session, you're given detailed 'how to prepare' instructions, which will help you choose what to wear, how to style yourself, what to bring, and how to mentally prepare yourself.
It's easier to feel relaxed, open, and peaceful in an outdoor setting. You have the option to choose one of three very carefully selected outdoor locations. Sunset Beach Park in the West End. Queen Elizabeth Park in Mount Pleasant/Fairview. Hadden Park in Kitsilano.
During your session, we can take as few or as many photos as you feel comfortable with. No pressure, no expectations, just lots of collaboration, encouragement, and empowerment. Let go of your old, negative, self-harming perceptions. Take an important, healing step towards a more positive sense of yourself.
I'm an LGBTQ+ friendly and BIPOC-friendly photographer. Everyone aged 16-and-up is welcome.
