Our studio is turning 2 this year – can you believe it? During this time we have met so many amazing people with all kinds of reasons to do a photoshoot for themselves.

Here are 5 reasons to do a photoshoot for yourself in 2022.

1. Confidence Booster

Having a photoshoot for yourself is not a vain. I think it is more a celebration of yourself and a gift to yourself. Kicking off the new year with a gorgeous set of portraits is such a great confidence booster! It can set the tone of your year to really emphasize that self-love you’ve been meaning to work on.

2. Update your social media

The new year is always a great time to update all of your profile pictures including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and your CV. We can’t be using the same portrait that you took 5 years ago! It’s always nice to give our accounts a refresh with something new – now is your chance!

3. Change out the portraits in your home

There’s this weird misconception with our generation which is, you are vain if you have a portrait of yourself in your home. Well, I call BS on that. Let’s look back about 50-100 years ago – even further. It was common to get 1 professional portrait either taken or drawn of yourself at least once in your life and to hang it in your home. Why not make that a new tradition? If the Queen does it, so can you.

This is also a historic record of yourself. One day when your family looks for portraits of you, what will they find? Does a selfie really justify?

4. You are teaching yourself and those around you about self-value

By investing in a portrait of yourself, you are showing yourself and others that you value yourself. An important step in life is accepting yourself for who you are and the way that you look. You are just as valuable as any celebrity, model or influencer.

5. It’s an opportunity to dress up and spoil yourself

You deserve a portrait, here and now. Not when you drop 5kg, not when you own that certain outfit, or when that special occasion comes around. You deserve a portrait of yourself as you are. Life is short. Now is the time to pull that little black dress hanging in the back of your wardrobe, those heels you would never wear out, to get your nails done and get beautiful makeup done.

No nice outfits? I have a bunch that you can choose from!

I hope that this has inspired you to book a photoshoot with that photographer you have been dying to shoot with.
