NEWSFLASH!! I think I’ve discovered a new therapy!!!
Ok, perhaps not a new therapy, a badass one and who doesn’t love a good photo? Nothing beats a professional photography session. A professional photographer is able to explore your essence within you and capture your beautiful moments. A true professional can capture something you can't catch in a selfie. Instead of you fiddling about with the camera, you just let go and be the focus. I’m talking about a special time carved out for you with the only purpose of you being you. It is empowering and liberating and Davinia Kay Photography does that in her “ All Of Me” photoshoot. This 1 hour photo session shows you how to fall in love with yourself again, reminding you of your natural beauty, leaving you feeling confident and happy.

Davina is such a cool chick she was happy to go with my whim.
Shimmy and Sashay!
That’s when I started to embrace my inner Naomi. By track number three I was well in the zone. I began feeling the vibes and rocking out as my best self, overcoming my nerves and self-consciousness. You almost forget she’s there, until she offers guidance and support with your poses which are actually more difficult than they look. Real models make it look easy, however Davina is able to guide you to get the most flattering angles. It is hard work, I think I even broke out in a bit of a sweat, which was probably due to my dancing, than trying to hold an awkward pose - haha! She gave me a quick peek of some of the shots which gave me a boost and I was like oh my gosh….I look pretty good! Her direction and approach really is amazing which she says it’s a joint effort. I agree, her professional photographic ability to ca
