To give you the best experience possible and to ensure you leave feeling happy, empowered and radiating confidence, it’s important that we’ve really understood what you want from your photo shoot.
We’ve photographed over a thousand women over the past 10 years, each different and with their own unique story.
This means that no two photo shoots are the same. Each one is tailored to the individual.
For us to get this bit right, we have our very own personal stylist Aby. Aby is one-half of Moving Pictures, but more on that in another blog post!
Actually, the title personal stylist doesn’t do Aby justice. Helping to style you is just a small part of Aby’s role, so we thought we’d shine a spotlight on her and give you a bit of insight into what she does here at Moving pictures to ensure you get the best experience possible.
Once your photo shoot is booked it’s natural to feel nervous, even anxious about what you’ve got yourself into. Almost everyone that comes through our door feels like this at some point during their journey with us.
The pre-shoot consultation is the time for Aby to talk to you and settle those nerves.
Aby always offers a face-to-face consultation meeting. It’s hugely beneficial to come along to the studio beforehand and feel familiar with us and the surroundings before the day of your shoot. Of course, we understand that this may not always be practical, so she can chat over the phone if you’re not able to visit us.
Your consultation is the time for Aby to answer all your questions, to give you a complete overview of the process and to help you with every part of preparing for your shoot.
One of the most important ingredients for a great photo shoot is first understanding who you are.
Aby will chat with you to understand the reasons you’ve decided to have a photo shoot with us and also what this experience means to you, so we can tailor the style and feel of your images.
Outfits, hair and makeup
Some of our clients come through the doors knowing exactly what they want to wear. Many, however, need a little guidance.
Aby is on hand throughout your journey to offer advice on outfit choices (including the best places to go shopping if you want to buy something new!), hair styling and makeup.
Or, if there’s anything specific you have in mind, Aby can chat this through with you.
Unless you’ve had some modelling experience, it’s very unlikely you’ll know how best to pose to bring out the best of you in the finished photos.
Not only is Aby here to suggest a range of poses, but she will also demonstrate each pose in detail before we even turn the camera on. She is also on hand to style every single shot, checking every last detail is perfect on camera.
Put you at ease
Many of our clients feel nervous on the day of their shoot, which is completely natural – after all, this isn’t something you do every day!
As soon as you walk through our door, Aby is there to calm your nerves and put you at ease.
You only need to read through our testimonials to see that these nerves or feelings of anxiety soon dissipate and turn into a feeling of pride, satisfaction and joy.
After your shoot, we’ll need to prepare your final images ready for you to view. Aby is available during this time to keep you posted on when they’ll be ready and to answer any questions you may have since your shoot.
Your right-hand woman
Aby is there to support you in whatever way suits you both prior to, during and after your shoot.
You can contact her for advice, answers or just for some reassurance at any time. She’s helped thousands of ladies to overcome nerves, to enjoy preparing for the shoot and to grow in confidence throughout every stage of this experience.
Aby is there for you every step of the way!
The experience that you go through and the positive impact this can have on your life goes far beyond the actual photo shoot. For us, this is the most important thing.
Would you like to have a boudoir photo shoot?
We opened our studio on April 9th 2009, so that makes Moving Pictures ten years old today!
Where does the time go?!
It’s been such a privilege to see so many incredible ladies get so much out of their boudoir journey with us….please do share your memories of your time with Moving Pictures, we’d love to hear from you ♥️
Also…..we’re putting together a little something to celebrate our birthday, so keep your eyes peeled!
Did you see our recent blog post 6 Benefits of a Boudoir Photo Shoot?
Why Moving Pictures?
Here at Moving Pictures Boudoir, we are all about the celebration of who you are, body confidence and positive change for women, through our transformative Boudoir makeovers and photo shoots.
These benfits of a boudoir photo shoot show that Boudoir photography has an amazing power to transform how women feel about themselves and their bodies.
In short, many women think they could never do a photoshoot like this – we want to prove to you that you can!
Whilst taking a break from shooting yesterday, we were reminded what beautiful surroundings are studio is in.
We have photo shoots booked in on most weekends as we realise that not everyone can make it during the week, so this added flexibility means we’re available when it suits you.
Enjoying the sun on the farm in between photographing our lovely ladies!
We’re always hugely touched when we hear how much a shoot means to someone…I’d like to share some words with you from a lady who came to the Moving Pictures studio recently…says it all.
“I had spent years being told I was so ugly that if I had my photo taken I would break the camera!! Little by little I hid from cameras – I stopped going out because of CCTV etc! I only went shopping because I had to for my son!
My head was down so no one could see me!
I saw this opportunity when I had left my ex after a few years so decided to see if his words were true!!
I was made to feel special and that the lies that had made me so afraid were not true! I have to say that I was a very public professional with a front when at work but hid away once my uniform was off!
Now I fight back,hold my head high and say “I am me, I have strength and beauty you will not ever put me down again”.
Without Moving Pictures I would still be hidden!!”
