It’s okay to be nervous

February 21, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

It’s okay to be nervous in front of a camera. In fact, nerves mean you are outside your comfort zone. Guess where all the fun stuff happens in life? Outside your comfort zone! That’s where growth and self-discovery thrive. Embrace the nerves; I promise they won’t last long.

We aren’t judging (or even really looking at) your body… not even during a boudoir shoot.

I know that sounds crazy, but as photographers, that is not our job. Our job is to master posing, light, emotion, etc. So, yes, although we SEE you, we aren’t picking you apart. We are actually aiming to capture the best of you, so that is what we see.

When searching for a photographer, think about who will make you feel more comfortable. Want to bring a friend to the shoot to help you relax? Great! But be sure you bring a friend who won’t be insulted when you throw her out of the room! A true professional will never make you feel uncomfortable, so you might not need her as much as you think.


Ready for some great photographs? Let’s get to know each other over coffee (or smoothies… or milkshakes…), and talk about celebrating your life’s true beauty in images you love. You can reach me at [email protected] or (434) 226-0365. You can also schedule a consultation at; pick a time convenient for you, and let me know where you'd like to meet!

My Promise: Together, we will create amazing photos you’ll want to share. How do you want to be photographed?
