I'm Flora. 37. Wife to James. Mum to Calum, 13, and Willow-Mélodie who was born on the 16th February, 2021. I was born in Alsace, France but brought up in French Guiana, South America, from the age of 3. I currently live in the beautiful South of England.
Photography & I began at the ago of 6. It evolved from just being the most amazing and fun thing to do to becoming a healing tool when I, once upon a time, went through a painful divorce which left me lifeless in every area. I'm so humbled and grateful to be in a place where I can say that heartbreak is a long distant memory. Self-photography is very close to my heart as it was a tool on my journey to learning to love myself. I am passionate about photographing women who struggle loving themselves so that through photography, they can start seeing how truly beautiful they are and realise that real beauty goes way beyond what the eye can see. I am not naive. I know that photography isn't the cure to self hatred. What I am saying, however, is that I have experienced how much of a tool it can be for those who are on the journey of choosing life and choosing self-love. I am totally redeemed by God’s grace. My life was an absolute chaos. I made some pretty horrific decisions. I remember the dark place I was saved from, literally! I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t because of God - which is why I cannot not talk about Him. He took my mess and somehow transformed it into something beautiful! He's the greatest artist of all! I love to laugh - a lot. I don't take myself too seriously either! I am a coffee lover. Nespresso is my fav! Strong espresso. I love adventures. I am very romantic. Not massively the cheesy type although a little bit of that doesn’t hurt! I believe in second chances and genuine heart change. I tend to "click" a huge amount with the people I photograph and have gained the most incredible real life friends through photographing them!
I am passionate about capturing raw emotions and the stories of those I photograph. Photography is pretty powerful when it comes to remind us of all the things that we so easily forget as we often are way too busy to notice "life"!
If you're thinking of asking me to photograph you and/or your loved ones, let's meet up and see if we "click".
If you have been in a relationship or married for longer than just a minute and you love adventures, let's go to a special location together! There's nothing more beautiful than doing a "Togetherness" session and seeing couples connecting with each other in the most beautiful ways, without any distractions at all.
There's also something incredibly powerful about seeing women being set free from the lies that they have believed in for far too long! That's why my "Love Yourself" sessions are so close to my heart. If you struggle with loving yourself, your body and the woman that you are today, let's meet up. I so want to hear your story... and would be honoured to photograph when you are ready.
With so much love & hope, because there's always hope!
