The Ultimate Guide to Photo Confidence for Business Owners

Does the idea of being photographed make you a tad

nervous, uneasy, queasy?


That's ok and you are NOT alone. If fact, you're part of the majority.


Nearly ALL of my clients tell me that either they are awkward or uncomfortable (or both) being photographed and to be honest I don't expect to hear the opposite often.


Being in front of the camera isn't an everyday thing for most of us so it's completely natural to feel a bit stiff.


Remember that this is a collaboration - we're in it together and I'll do all I can to help you feel prepared in the lead up to your shoot, AND at your photoshoot, to help you feel at ease and CONFIDENT on camera, from checking out preview shots on the back, to telling AMAZING jokes, and showering you with well-deserved praise.



Walking into your shoot with a positive mindset and willingness to give it your all will do wonders for the process but in the meantime, here are a few things you can do to make sure you're showing up as the most confident version of yourself:


✨ affirmations:

→ "I am amazing and people want to work with me"

→ "My energy is infectious and I'm ready to attract"

→ "I love and celebrate myself"


✨ breathing exercises

→ deep, belly breaths

→ 4-7-8 breathing

→ box breathing


✨ meditation

→ lower your anxiety

→ be in the moment

→ taking time for yourself


✨ visualizations

→ picture the gratitude from all the women you'll help once you've reached more people!

→ imagine your child self and speak to her. Build her up just as you would build up your own child.


✨embodiment

→ pick your favorite public figure and embody the confidence they exude (Beyonce's a good person to start with!)


✨ hair and makeup

→ knowing a professional has helped you look your best will contribute to your confidence


✨ killer wardrobe

→ make sure you feel like yourself in the outfits you choose

→ choose looks that fit well and blend with your brand for a cohesive gallery


✨ boss playlist

get into the groove and out of your head! I bring a booty-shaking, anthem-filled playlist to my shoots to help you feel at ease



I take pride in my job and my job isn't complete if we don't walk away with photos you love.


Remember, you've got this!
