Why Online Coaching is Awesome!

Remote coaching is the way of the future! Here’s just a few reasons why remote coaching is not only just as good as in-person coaching, but it might even be better.  We can connect any time Within reason of course, I gotta sleep some time! But online video chatting has unlocked opportunities for those that could not have accessed them before. Having time is a luxury these days, unfortunately. If you’ve got kids or a busy work schedule, you know what I’m talking about. Being able to ge...

New Year's Resolutions – What if there's a better way?

What if I told you that New Year’s resolutions are created to fail? That they never work and you’re wasting your time?  That sounds really harsh, right? Unfortunately, it’s also true.  We’ve all done it, set THAT New Year’s resolution with all the best intentions in the world, but by the time February rolls round, it’s likely that around 80% of people would have abandoned their resolutions. Hell, I’ve done it many times before. Usually it’s lose weight, eat healthier, e...

Owning my story thus far

What a wild ride we have been on so far this year and it’s not about to change anytime soon. I thought if there was ever a time to tell you my own story, it would be now!  While everything is all over the place, finding our new normal in the world is causing a lot of inward reflection. I thought, why not be vulnerable and share my new truths? But where do I even start? There are some things I have been dealing with and I like to think I am rather open and honest about it all. Seeing as I ...

The LOVE ME TRUE series - My WHY

I know what it’s like to be a woman who struggles to see her own beauty and power. For years I wrestled with my body image, my self-value and the biggest one “I’m not good enough”. Caught up in my own mind games of not looking how my friends looked or how girls in magazines looked, I decided to do some work on myself and dammmnnn was it the most confronting thing I did, but also the most incredible and rewarding thing I could have done.    HOWEVER, I’m going to be completely ...

How to use Pinterest for your photo shoot

Pinterest is my go to for any kind of inspiration and if you aren’t using it you are seriously missing out.  I have boards for my style (well the style I would love to have one day), creative projects I want to do, my own photography, things that motivate me and wayyyyy more. I am a visual person and Pinterest allows me to collate all things “me” visually.One of the first things I ask my clients, from personal branding through to boudoir, is if they have a pinterest board for their sh...

Why you should experience a Boudoir Session

Miss A

Women struggle with body confidence every-day. Learning how to embrace the wonders of your own body can be really challenging and also very rewarding.This is why I was so pleased to meet and have the honour of photographing the beautiful Antonia. She came to me to appreciate and celebrate her body after being diagnosed with the BRCA2 gene. This wonderful woman wanted to remember her breasts before she went for an elective prophylactic bilateral mastectomy....

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the one and only Nina, from Monochrome and Simone, a few months ago when I started on my mission to empower women to love themselves.We had previously worked together on a shoot, where she was styling and directing so knew she was an incredible human being with the same body positive belief as me. That’s why when I approached Nina to roll around in the sheets with me (literally) I was super excited when she said yes!...

So we got together to have this session and below is her experience....
