A Norfolk Flourish + Thrive Portrait with Lucy
What is to Flourish and Thrive? For everybody this will be different [I would love to hear what it means to you!]. For me it is to feel your best self, to feel free, to have space, to have a sense of contentment, to feel joy inside – like a light has turned on, it makes you smile and to feel like celebrating exactly who you are right in this very moment. To see the beauty both inside and out that everybody else see’s but sometimes we struggle to see ourselves. Each time I do a Flourish and Thrive Shoot, this is my intention to capture and bottle up for you.
Meeting Lucy was an honour and joy, I love that she celebrated exactly who she is today and had this shoot for herself. Arriving with 2 beautiful outfits, a smile, a feeling of nerves but an attitude of ‘lets do this, I can’t wait’ made the whole shoot wonderful from start to finish. It started with lots of little bits of direction to help Lucy feel at ease but by the time we got on those dunes she was comfortable, laughing and embraced the whole thing of having your picture taken in public (I have to say that is a big thing!). I found her inspiring, uplifting and refreshing to photograph.
Arriving home, Lucy messaged to say thank you and that she loved every second of it. That! That is why I have introduced the Flourish and Thrive Shoots. And …. here is the beautiful Lucy!
