When Lucy first landed in my inbox, I knew she was someone special right away. Lucy is a fully accredited life coach, who is all about supporting and empowering women to realise their full potential - if you've ever caught yourself wondering 'surely there's got to be more to life than this?!' then Lucy is the girl you need to speak to.
Her warmth shone through in every word, and I fell a little in love with her as soon as I read about her and her business (which is dedicated to her mum), and especially her view on success - which is to pursue true happiness first, and know that success will follow ♥ I am so passionate about that belief, I even incorporated it into my wedding speech!!!! So when Lucy said something similar, I knew I just had to work with her.
We got along so well, that I'm even appearing over on Lucy's blog this week! Lucy is creating a collection of interviews that feature incredible women who have challenged the notion of success in pursuit of happiness - and I'm honestly blown away and beyond honoured to be included!!Somehow she managed to turn my hour long ramblings into this beautiful little article about my journey from law to photography, and I'd love for you to head on over and have a read! You can read it over here on The Graceful Collective's blog.
Here's a small snippet of a few of my fave photos from my session with Lucy (you can see more over on her website too); the one of Lucy on her stairs is one of my new favourite photos for 2017.
Here's what Lucy had to say about her images:
I was worried that I wouldn't look like me - I might be too staged or that I'd be rocking too many 'fake' smiles. But Lecinda is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with; she made me feel so comfortable and calm (and even beautiful), and I knew I could trust her. I also loved all our communication in the lead up to the shoot and that was the decider in booking with her. She took a genuine interest in my business - who I am, who I work with and what I do, and showed a real understanding in what I wanted to achieve and how we could best do that.
When I saw the images for the first time it felt like I was seeing myself in my business for the very first time! I was over the moon with the images, Lecinda captured me perfectly and her beautiful images gave me an instant boost of confidence and huge motivation to get my website live.
I would book with her again in a heartbeat!
