Hi – Aby here, I’m the personal stylist here at Moving Pictures Boudoir.
If you’re like 99% of ladies who have had a photoshoot with us, it’s likely you’re going to feel nervous as the day of your photoshoot approaches.
That’s perfectly normal, and we can help you manage it, so it doesn’t get in the way of enjoying your shoot.
Let’s break this feeling down to what it is. What exactly are the nerves, and why would you feel nervous about this?
Fear of the unknown
You’ve not done this before – if you had, you wouldn’t be feeling nervous now! This is perfectly natural to experience when doing something new for the first time.
It will pass – normally in the first five minutes of the shoot, and it probably isn’t anything like you’re imagining.
Here’s what other clients have said – https://movingpicturesboudoir.co.uk/reviews
I don’t like photos of myself / I’ll hate all the photos
Everyone says this to us before their shoot.
We’re all used to being photographed really badly these days, and feeling like we’re not photogenic or whatever. If someone takes a bad photo of you, whose fault is it? It’s the person taking the photo’s fault, not yours.
We have ten years experience photographing thousands of women, 99% of whom feel the same way about their photograph being taken.
We have NEVER had anyone tell us they don’t like their images, and there’s a good reason for that – we show you every image as we take it, and if we don’t see you go “wow”, we shoot it again until you do.
You’ll see all my wobbly bits
OK – firstly, you’re in a robe until you pose for the shot, you’re not walking around in lingerie.
Secondly, yes, we will see some of them, and you know what – we don’t care, and neither should you. We do this, and only this, 24/7 – it’s completely matter-of-fact to us.
We see so many different shapes and sizes, and we’re focused entirely on making you look amazing. There are no judgements here and negativity is left at the door and banned from the studio!
It’s really simple – we show the bits you like, we hide the bits you don’t. Whereas it might sound scary, it’s actually really empowering to do. EVERY body is welcome!
I won’t be able to do it / I won’t do it right
There’s nothing to get wrong. We don’t expect you to do anything – we pose you, direct you, tweak everything, light you beautifully and show you the results.
The only thing you have to do is tell us what you like and what you don’t. You can’t get it wrong or not be able to “do it”.
So what should you do if nerves are getting the better of you?
Firstly, just LET YOURSELF BE NERVOUS. It’s going to happen to everyone to some degree, and it will pass. You’re doing something which is probably outside of your comfort zone, and that will always make us nervous, especially as we get older – but we can’t let fear stop us from doing the things we want to do, otherwise it wins. Nerves are ultimately just a form of excitement – raised heart rate, heightened sense of awareness, quickened thoughts. They can’t hurt you, and getting past them to do something you want to do always feels amazing.
The hardest thing is getting in through the studio doors – after you’ve done that, it gets easier and easier.
So just tell yourself – all I’m going to do is summon just enough courage to walk in the door. That’s the ONE BIT we can’t help you with, and once you’ve done that, we’ll look after you from there. We promise you, once you’re here, you’re home and dry. Remember, you’re always in control. You decide what you want to do and what you don’t, and we respect your feelings at every turn.
Think about this, too. The very worst thing that could happen is we take a photograph you don’t like – and all we do then is change the pose, lighting and/or expression until you do.
Once you compare this to the genuinely difficult things we all encounter in life, you’ll see that not only was it a walk in the park by comparison, but you’ve enjoyed it much more than you were expecting and got a lasting benefit from doing it.
So. if nerves really are getting the better of you, CALL ME and let’s talk it through. That’s what I’m here for, and exactly what we as a studio are set up to do.
Personal stylist, Moving Pictures Boudoir
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 – we’ll tell you more about the other half in another 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 role 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 via Zoom. It’s hugely beneficial to “meet” before the day of your shoot, so linking up in a virtual meeting is the safest and most effective way of Aby getting to know you better, and for you to feel more familiar and comfortable with Aby and with the experience you are embarking on. Don’t worry if you don’t have access to the technology to meet via Zoom, as a telephone consultation can be arranged if needed.
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 following 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.
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. This really touched our hearts, and it speaks volumes about how someone else’s opinions can completely alter your own perception of yourself.
“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 the opportunity (for a boudoir photo shoot) when I had left my ex after a few years, so I 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!!”
