My Story with Studio X Photograhy
Hi, I had thought of doing a glamour photo shoot before, but had never ventured into doing my homework and organising my session. I came across the Studio X Photography stand at an exhibition and saw the photos that they had on display. I thought they were awesome! Once I met with Chris and Loric at their studio, we talked about my worries and insecurities, as I am slightly on the overweight side. They took it all in their stride and assured me that it would all work out. We talked about what ideas and concepts I liked, what I wanted to achieve during my shoot and discussed any ideas that I wanted to try. With that they put forth their ideas of what they thought would suit me and went on to show me some examples of their ideas. On the day of my photo shoot, I was so excited and nervous all at once! I went and had my hair and makeup done by somebody I knew and travelled to Newmarket. I was very nervous with the thought of having next to nothing on and my photos taken in the presence of two strangers that I had only met with once before. Both Chris and Loric just kept talking to me and encouraging me with more ideas and helpful pointers. It wasn’t long before I really started to enjoy posing in nothing more that just a sheet! Once in full swing and with my confidence up, it became much easier than I ever thought it would be. We tried many different looks to see what worked best for me. By the time the actual photo shoot was over, I was feeling so relaxed that I didn’t want it to end!
Sitting there during my viewing and looking at all the shots that Loric had captured was so cool, seeing myself on the big screen and realising that I was a lot more photogenic than I had ever thought. All I could think was WOW! I felt like such a princess and so beautiful. It was such a great feeling!
Trying to choose my favourite images from all of the photos was so hard! I eventually got it down to my favourites and decided to get them mounted for my wall.
The excitement of collecting my pictures was overwhelming. I even shed a few tears in front of Keith and Chris when I picked up my images.
With only spending such a short amount of time with Keith, Chris and Loric, I felt like I had known them forever as it was a very familiar feeling working with them. I feel confident and proud of my photos and very willing to show my friends and family. The understanding and patience that has been displayed to me has made the whole experience most enjoyable, to the point that I can’t wait to do it all again!
Thank you so much for EVERYTHING! D.H.
