Frequently Asked Questions

I have never posed in front of a photographer and I dare not book a session. What to do ?

A first session can be stressful if you’ve never done one before. The sessions that I present on my website were made with people who had never done a photo shoot themselves.

Before the session, we plan a telephone meeting to discuss and give you some advice. An advice guide will be e-mailed to you before the session.

I will be there throughout the session to guide you through the poses and advise you. For portrait sessions alone, you can come accompanied if you wish.

If you wish, ESTIM sessions can help you regain your self-confidence.
