"I have never felt that I had a great body but after having a mastectomy, I have spent the last few years covering up all the more. I was very nervous when I decided to do this shoot but Tilly has such a warm, gentle nature that she put me at ease so easily. The shoot itself was great fun and I was so proud of myself for being brave enough to do something new. The photos are lovely, scars and all and I even thought about having one framed for my surgeon! Thank you Tilly" - Louise
“Seeing the beautiful studio stunningly laid out and the make up lady ready I knew it was going to be a fun experience! From start to finish Tilly and her colleague went to every effort to help me feel relaxed and to have fun, I now have the most beautiful photos that have built my fragile confidence no end (after having a baby and a few intense operations on my tummy). I can’t recommend the experience enough not only for incredible photos but also if you’re dealing with the same issues as I once had with body confidence." - Alice
“Absolutely terrifying but also really lovely and exciting. I was looking for something exhilarating or some kind of change in my life and this seemed like an amazing opportunity to do something really fun and different. It was a way to really confront myself, to be open and honest and appreciate myself for what I was, lumps and bumps and all! I never actually believed I would go through with it... but when I did, I felt really proud and think I learned something new about myself. It was a great experience and I would recommend it to everyone!”
“I wanted to challenge and push myself out of my comfort zone. I think I was seeking that feeling of liberation you can only get from allowing yourself to be vulnerable, like with a sky dive or being on stage. The shoot was really fun and silly, After I got covered in paint, wore fake eyelashes and poured icey-cold water over my head, I forgot I had no clothes on. Terrifying and hilarious fun, everyone should do this once!”
“For me the shoot was about capturing a stage of change in my life. Highlighting how powerful our bodies are, going against my inhibitions and having no regrets.”
"My main motivation to do the shoot was to overcome my insecurities related to my body. I wanted to see myself through an objective eye of a camera, which until now I absolutely disliked. You made me feel very comfortable and free to express whatever felt right at the moment. I found the whole experience very liberating and I feel it helped me to find again my feminine energy. I'm now gentler to myself and feel much better in my own skin. And last, but not least I had lots of fun dressing up and pouring water over my head!"
