THE WOODLAND GODDESS EXPERIENCE
Woodland Goddess is all about celebrating women in nature. One of our most versatile shoots, nothing is off the table. Whether you want to embrace The Goddess in flowing dresses, lacy lingerie or go nude in nature, we will find what fits for you. The freeing nature of the forest will allow you to feel super comfortable and in-tune with the world around you. It is a perfect first Location Liberty, as the wide range of shots can be altered with the ever-changing surroundings. Whether you want to be cosy and autumnal, fresh in Spring, sexy in Summer or cold and powerful near the Winter trees; nature, the seasons, and the Liberty team have got you. It can be about healing, reconnecting, strengthening, or simply celebrating you.
THINGS TO BRING:
Lingerie - everything works in the forest. It could be that cute set of lacy underwear, or a black mesh bodysuit. It can be yellow, or silver, or green, or any colour you can think of. The magic of the forest, is that whatever you want to go for, it will work. You can always go nude in nature, but bring along some underwear for a versatile range of shots.
Dresses - they can be long and sweeping, or short and flirty. Embroidered vintage dresses work beautifully, as do simple peasant dresses. We tend to recommend you avoid the formal prom-type dresses, because they don't always fit in within nature.
Kimonos and Cover-Ups - they're entirely optional, but if you're not completely sure you're ready to bare all as a Woodland Goddess, but you want the option, a floaty kimono or lacy cover-up could give you that little confidence boost when you begin your shoot, and you can always take it off half way through.
Snacks - completely optional, but when you're waiting in the woods for your turn to be photographed, 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 day out for you.
Water and Sunscreen. There's tons of shade in the woods, so the need for sunscreen is minimal, but bring it along if you feel a bit cautious due to hot weather. Always bring along water to keep you hydrated throughout the shoot.
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. When you're all made up and feeling your best, we will travel down to the forest and begin the group woman's circle. 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 have two photographers present at each location shoot. Carrie will be photographing you in the landscape; you'll get iconic full-length Liberty landscape shots among the trees and sunlight. Then Aurora will take you for some close-ups; getting your best side and photographing you among the trees and on the forest floor. 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 in the forest 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 fabulous throughout the day!
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!
