One of the things I hear regularly is "I don't think I want to be in the photographs" and my answer is always the same..... you don't have to be a model to have a photoshoot.
We are all different, we are all individuals - we are short, we are tall, we are larger, we are small, we have short hair, we have long hair - some of us have very little hair! We are older, we are younger...... but you know what.....none of that matters - what is important is that we are all unique!
We are unique people who love our animals, we are dedicated to getting up at the crack of dawn in whatever the British weather decides to throw at us. We walk our dogs, we ride our horses in the middle of the summer, or the cold winter days. We sweat, we freeze, we ache, sometimes we break - but we still do it - we are a special kind of people.
We all have our own story and that is where the photographer comes in. The photographer captures your stories of love, friendship, fun and halts everything for just a second or two so that you can look back on these images for a long time to come.
Happy memories, sad memories, the downright daft memories - it all counts - they might make you laugh, cry or sit and wonder.....but they are there for you to cherish.
So don't worry if you are not a model or you don't know how "to pose" - it really doesn't matter. What matters is that you are you and no ones images will ever be the same as yours!! :-)
