The other side of the lens

Well I am always behind the camera shooting newborns, babies & toddlers as you all know. I adore my job & I am truly honored to capture some amazing memories for such loving families.

I have never liked being photographed & on the rare occasion I appear on an image I am never happy with what I see looking back at me which is why I concentrate mainly on my children or work.

Last month I took part in some more Newborn training at a studio based in Cannock, it was an amazing day & I had lots of fun. I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing photographers, Norman Rubenis runs the studio & his boudoir work is amazing. 

After seeing his images hanging up on the walls around his studio it got me thinking about whether I was brave enough to try something totally out of my comfort zone? It would bad enough being photographed but could I also be photographed in that way??

Well after much thought & discussion with Norman I decided to bite the bullet & book a session. I attended the session last Friday & wow what an experience! The make up artist was amazing and very good, she listened to what I liked & when I saw the final result I didn't believe it was me. I am so used to wearing no make up & having my hair tied back that it was an amazing transformation.

Norman was lovely, he was very relaxed and reassuring with what to wear & how to pose. I felt totally at ease, even when I wasn't wearing much clothing.

I would fully recommend Norman at Rubenis Portraits to anyone considering a boudoir session, its a great confidence boost for any lady of any shape or size.

I have posted some of my images from the day but some are for personal eyes only 'blush'.
