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!!”
