Lina - Confidence Builder Photoshoot

Updated: Jan 9

August 2019. I met Lina at a photography workshop and found that she is a wonderful child photographer. We got chatting and I invited her to see my studio and have some photographs taken. This turned into one short and one longer photoshoot where Lina turned from someone who didn't know how to pose in front of the camera, into someone who was confident and able to be themselves, as I created a safe and relaxing atmosphere in which she could get in touch with her inner goddess and build up her self image. She said that, as a photographer and a mum, she didn't have any photos of herself, and thanked me for taking the time to bring out the real woman hidden inside her, which was so often hidden with the pressures of everyday life, and recording this before she changes for ever.

This is an example of a Confidence Builder Photoshoot, and Portrait Photography . Contact me for details if you are interested in having your photograph taken in any of these, or my other styles.


The testimonial/reference she left for me said - "I've done two shots with Colin. He is a professional, very talented, safe, understanding, organised and relaxing photographer also a friendly personality. I felt relaxing environment in his studio, i was myself and comfortable. I am photographer as well, i was amazed of his photography skills. i learnt a lot from him. We got a great results ! The photos we produced were incredible, high quality and i could't be happier. Definitely i would recommend Colin and i will back again."
