THE TRIBAL LIBERTY EXPERIENCE
Tribal Liberty is one of our latest Liberty location shoots. It's all about embodying the female warrior in our fiercest, fiery shoot. You get warrior make-up and optional full-body war paint, to embrace the part of you ready for a fight. For us it is all about empowering women for a fight ahead, or a pick-me-up for those already fighting for something. We all have battles during our lives, whether it be within relationships, family, health, finding ourselves, and so much more. Our Tribal Liberty is designed to remind you of the strength to keep on going, and to celebrate the fierceness and abilities that women have. It is perfect to do following a calming river shoot or studio session, and an amazing shoot to reinforce your self-love journey.
THINGS TO BRING:
Lingerie and Bodysuits - think fringes, fishnet, lace-ups, mesh and more. Tribal is a chance to get creative with warrior-esque bodysuits in black or dark colours, with hints of metallic gold. Add long or chunky jewellery to embrace your woman tribe. Dark colours and gold work best, but you're welcome to anything, so bring as much or as little as you'd like, and we can always help you choose on the day.
Kimonos and Cover-Ups - they're entirely optional, but if you're not completely sure you're ready to bare all in the ocean, a kimono or sexy cover-up could give you that little confidence boost when you begin your shoot, and you can always take it off half way through.
Towel and/or bathrobe - once you've been in the ocean with one of our photographers, it might be a little while before the next one is ready. Make sure you bring a towel to dry off, but a bathrobe can keep you nice and snug while you're waiting.
Snacks - completely optional, but when you're waiting on the beach, it can be lovely to have a little picnic. We'll bring the Prosecco, but a few snacks can make the shoot into a little evening out for you.
Water and Sunscreen. There isn't always shade at our Tribal shoots, and although we begin shooting at sunset, we will be going earlier to set up and do the woman's circle. Bring along water to stay hydrated, and sunscreen if you're concerned about the burn. Just try and stick to clear cream, because you don't want to ruin your fierce warrior look with white sunblock everywhere! An extra tip - try and apply it before your full body war paint, which is usually done on location, so you don't smudge it before you get the chance to be photographed!
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY
Once you've booked your shoot, we'll give you a call before the day and answer any questions you have, and have a chat about how to make it the perfect shoot for you. When you arrive on the day, you will be greeted by our lovely Liberty team who will go through what you want out of the shoot, and what you are planning to wear. We'll have a chat and go through how the shoot will go. Then you will have your 1-on-1 make-up session with the amazing Georgina Chambers' make-up team, who will focus on giving you the fiercest eye-make up and delicate facial paint, to make sure you're ready to be a warrior. When you're all made up and feeling your best, we will travel to the beach and begin the group woman's circle barefoot on the sand. Our woman's circle is designed to give you a safe space to talk about whatever you would like to say; why you came along to a Liberty, what you want to take from it, or stories about yourself and who you are, or who you want to be. The circle works not just as a safe space for you, but as a way for our photographer's to connect with who you are, in order to give you the best experience they can, and capture you in the truest way possible. We will begin the shoot just as the sun begins to set. We have two photographers present at each location shoot. Carrie will be photographing you in the landscape; you'll get iconic Liberty shots on the sand with full-body war paint and more. Then Aurora (our resident water baby) will take you for some close-ups waist-deep in the ocean, focusing on fierce face shots and sunlit water wings. Both of them are always open to new ideas, and can personalise your poses to guarantee a beautiful, versatile gallery that celebrates you. Our photographers have significant knowledge of poses, so don't worry if you're nervous in front of the camera, or worried over how you'll look; we're all trained to get your best sides, and to capture you looking as wonderful as you are. When you're not being photographed, you can sit along the beach with the rest of the lovely ladies and our Liberty Host Holly, who will hold your hand through the whole process, and make sure you feel comfortable and strong throughout the evening!
Once the shoot is over, you'll be invited to our studio within a couple of weeks to view your images. The galleries will consist of 30-40 photographs, and our package prices can be found here. But the Liberty experience doesn't stop there - you'll be invited to our Liberty VIPs group on facebook, where you can share your new beautiful images, make new connections and see all our latest and upcoming events. Blow them up massive and make a wall of you, and you can always come back anytime for another shoot with £50 off our packages, because we know Liberty can be so addictive. Once you've seen yourself, you'll want even more. Book now and strengthen the journey of celebrating you, and we can't wait to meet you!
