MEET THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello, my name is Blanche,
I am a portrait photographer
and I am dedicated to helping you
falling in love with yourself AGAIN.
I photograph women who
don’t like their photos taken.
A photo we don’t love can affect us in such a way including lowering our self-esteem. So we start hiding from photos because we think we are not beautiful enough. Often with excuses of not being photogenic or because we think we’re too fat, too thin, too short, too tall…
As a real woman myself, I can relate to that feeling of not loving your own photos. Or sometimes have to take over 1.435,678 selfies to get one right. I can relate to being photographed many times – for your business, with your family, or even a makeover experience, – and then the results are so disappointing that you decide to never ever look for a photographer and be in front of the camera again.
Before I became a photographer and learned all the things this profession requires, I had these issues all the time. I only loved images of me when I didn’t realise I was actually photographed. Those images seemed way much more natural. But every time someone lifted a camera towards me, I freaked out and I ended up making awful faces or fake smiles and I just simply hated the images. “OMG, Is that really me?”
A thought of a boudoir session was way beyond any possibility as I felt I could not face and I would not want the experience of seeing my body on images like that. Yes, I admired others and I had the envy back of my mind to try it… but for all of these issues this would never be me”. – I thought.
A photoshoot with me is a personal and transformational experience.
Through mastering my craft nearly 10 years ago, and after a very bad experience with an internationally well-known photographer who only cared about himself, his art and his vision, I have realised the difference.
It has to be all about you.
I give you my time and attention. You tell me how you want to be perceived by the world. You tell me all of the things inside of you, that you haven’t had the courage to show the world – but you wish you could. You tell me your issues, your fears, maybe you show me your previous photos. Your concerns. Your dreams.
You tell me your story.
And I listen.
All I do is listen and help you create something amazing.
I help you create, see and believe in the best version of yourself.
I show the best
version of you
back to you.
I believe in empowering women and helping them accept their body image and caring about self-love. You must accept and celebrate the bodies that you are born with. I know it sounds a bit odd but you must give a try. You need to put yourselves first, find your value and believe that you are good enough. You can be confident in many situations, in your business, in different relationships but there are several cases when confidence might disappear, and many times it’s body or bad experience related.
You have to be the leading lady of your own life.
The women who you see on my website are not models, they are mothers, sisters, daughters, housewives, grandmothers, business entrepreneurs, – everyday women just like you or me. Most of them stopped existing in photos after their weddings, or have not ever had their professional photos taken before. Most of them said the same excuses “I don’t like my photos taken”, “I’m not photogenic”, “I just don’t like my face on photos”, “Oh, no, not me, just my children”, “I’m too old to do this”, “I need to lose weight first”… I have heard them all. Most of them would rather go to a dentist than having a photo session.
The good news is that you don’t have to worry about all of these at all. It is my job to get you relaxed and comfortable in front of my camera, it is my job to gently guide you through posing that flatters you and your body during the photo session – regardless of your age or weight. Because I know what beautiful looks like. I can see yours – and I know how to capture your true beauty with my camera. It is not about photoshop – it is about knowing the body, shapes, light, posing. It is about trust between us.
I want to help you to believe that you are beautiful inside and out.
I have photographed many women of all ages and sizes and I could show them that they are just as beautiful as the women you have seen in famous magazines.
You are perfect the way you are now, – there has never been a more perfect time to celebrate yourself. To access yourself and to show the world how strong and confident you are.
I promise you to create the most beautiful photographs that you have ever had, which you can lovingly pass to your loved ones, your children and cherish for a lifetime. Choose to exist in beautifully printed, mounted photographs. Value yourself more than a USB stick or a mobile selfie.
I want to photograph your beauty in a way that you have never seen before.
I want to help you connect with that siren that is within yourself and help you become more confident than ever and feeling comfortable in your own skin again.

We had the most amazing time with Blanche. It was such a wonderful experience to have her photograph us. Right from the time I enquired by phone she put us at ease. We were made to feel special and her results have captured something my daughter and I will cherish forever. Blanche is wonderful and I cannot recommend her enough!Rachael
