My Story

"Living life under a black cloud, feeling alone and worthless is no way to live.
This is coming from someone who has travelled the world, been a thrill seeker, was always the last to leave a party and the one who was always smiling and making people laugh. Then one day....boom it felt my life was over - even though I have a wonderful family, beautiful home and the privilege of living and breathing. So please realise that this is one of the hardest things I've had to openly admit to and explain to others.


Depression and anxiety affects so many of us nowadays, and still there is such a big stigma and shame to talk about it. I put on weight through reasons associated with my depression and allowing past bad relationships to affect how I felt about myself. I don't like going to social events because I feel like the elephant in the room - literally! I feel that everyone judges me and pity's me for being overweight and unattractive, I just don't feel good enough or worthy. If I can't love myself - how can I expect anyone else to?


Well, I'm not going to be ashamed anymore - life happens!
I have decided I AM taking back my life and taking control again. I am no longer going to put myself down and hide away at home in my safe place. 
 

How I started this, I went for a makeover experience and photo shoot with Lighthouse photography studios
I must add I am seeing my doctor regularly and under going hypnotherapy with an amazing lady who is really helping in my recovery. 
Leaving my comfort zone was a big step, but once I was there I was made to feel so at home and very at ease. Shane, Connie and Tanya are such lovely people. I've never done anything like this before, so I wasn't such a great model lol however Tanya my photographer was very patient and made me feel like a natural and helped me get into poses that were flattering yet natural.


Connie did my hair and make up and made me feel a million dollars - something I haven't felt in a long time. Shane, well what can I say....a guy who is funny and empathetic and made me feel really comfortable being around new people again.
 

A wonderful experience which has really helped me on my road to recovery and I would highly recommend to anyone else who feels the same way as me.
 

Life is far to short to spend it hating yourself. Let lighthouse photography be the first step to help you learn to love yourself again. Best wishes and remember you're not alone".

Our Makeover Experiences - FAQ

WHO’S IT FOR?

FOR ANY LADY THAT WANTS TO LOOK AND FEEL BEAUTIFUL

“I never thought I would have the confidence to do anything like this! But they were so lovely to work with and made me feel amazing. The photos were fantastic and I couldn't believe I could actually look that good! I think everyone should give it a go, especially with this team, definitely makes you realise how beautiful you really are, and for a person with little self confidence this has been an amazing discovery. Thank you so much!”

ALL YOUR CLIENTS LOOK AMAZING, I COULDN'T LOOK THAT GOOD COULD I?

All the photos you see are of retouched final images. Some studios like to show before and after shots but we are not about singing our own praises but showing you at your best. We show you off looking amazing!

    Having said that - here is an example of the transformation process so relax you're going to look amazing!

WHAT DO I WEAR?

It's all about you and helping you look and feel great so we recommend clothes that you feel confident. Your studio shoot will be in two halves. The first photos are relaxed but fun, natural photos that suit an outfit that you would wear for a lovely day out, perhaps a wedding? The second half we recommend an evening outfit as we go for more dramatic and elegant poses.
our latest OFFER includes a £50 gift voucher to spend at M & Co. Where you can book a professional stylist to help you choose your outfit!

WILL I BE ABLE TO CONSULT WITH THE HAIR & MAKE UP LADY ABOUT HOW I WANT TO LOOK?

Connie, Our professionally trained beauty beauty expert will work with you to create a look that you love. You will never go in front of the camera unless you are 100% happy and confident with how you look

I'VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE, I'M REALLY NERVOUS - WILL YOU HELP ME POSE?

Our photographers are fully trained in posing and lighting, you may be nervous but our experiences are designed to encourage you to gently into posing your body that flatters you and your body. We also believe that a great portrait comes from great connection. We are real people with real stories ourselves that really care about you and how you feel. We keep taking pictures until we get that bond that creates fantastic connection and captures the real you!

Phil & Andrea - Engagement shoot

Instow beach is such a great location for a shoot that I am often asked to take couples for engagement sessions.
With the wedding under a month away it was great to meet up and go through a few poses but most of all to get to know Phil & Andrea better.
Here's a LINK to the rest of the pix - Enjoy!

Newborn Art

We're so excited!!!!!

The combined expertise of our Newborn Photographer and our in house graphics team mean that these special composites can be created.

Composites are where the real photograph looks much different. The newborn baby is only a few centimetres away from a soft covered seat but with clever editing we can create the illusion needed for this kind of shot.

What price can you put on something like this going on your wall?
