Sen Portrait Session

Sen and I had so much fun wandering around her neighbourhood - Friedrichshain - and playing around with different looks for her portrait session.

And I found myself talking passionately about how important I think it is for people to treat themselves to a photo shoot every now and then - and not necessarily only when it's time to get new profile photos for work (though that's also a great excuse and good motivation too!) But the idea of giving yourself (or someone else) the gift of stepping in front of another person's lens is more valuable than just having some cool new pics to share on social. 

It's about the act of being present. And, specifically, of present-ing yourself, being seen in a way you might not naturally see yourself (or think of to be seen). And noticing how you feel in that space - a space you're not normally in. These are powerful things. 

And that's why I think it's so important to work with a photographer who you connect with emotionally on some level. When you share similar values about what 'beauty' is and what the intention of the shoot is, it's so much easier to get into the creative flow of things and be Present in whatever way feels true for you.
