Have you noticed? More and more advertising campaigns these days feature body-positive photography.
Brands are featuring women of all sizes and are increasingly showing ‘mum tums’ and the bits of our bodies that have historically been hidden away – considered too embarrassing or ugly to be seen.
As empowerment photographers ourselves, we think this is great! Don’t you?
This change is part of the body positivity movement, which is something that we, at Johanna Elizabeth, fully support. Women finally seem to be being more accurately represented online. While it’s still far too little too late, at least it’s a move in the right direction.
Rather than follow the trends though, our ethos has always been to portray real women. Keep reading to find out more about our body positivity photography.
What is body positivity?
Body positivity champions the idea that every single one of us is worthy of love (absolutely we are!) and challenges the fact that there is an ‘ideal’ body type that we should all be striving to achieve.
As body positivity advocates ourselves, we believe that we all deserve to have a positive body image, regardless of our size, shape and appearance.
We also passionately support the view that your opinion of your body is the only opinion that matters and that no one other than you has the right to have an opinion on your body. Nor do they have the right to comment on your body.
After all, it’s your body, so it’s your choice what you do with it, right?!

Body-positive photography for women
We proudly run an established and inclusive photography studio. At our HQ here in Havant, Hampshire, we have been photographing women of all shapes and sizes for many years.
Through our work, we empower women by creating body-positive portraits. These are works of art that capture our female clients in all their gorgeousness. All women are welcome!

Embrace your true self in a body-positive photoshoot
There’s nothing we love more than to have the opportunity to work with a diverse range of women and to create body-positive pictures that show and embrace the real you.
At a photoshoot with us, we won’t ask you to “breathe in”, “hide your tummy” or “cover-up”. Oh, no, no, no!
We’re here for one reason and one reason only….to help you celebrate your amazing body and to make you feel like the goddess that you truly are!

A sensitive and guided photographic experience
As the UK’s leading female empowerment photographer, I’m known as the “curve hunter”.
When photographing a client, I look for the beautiful shapes that the body makes. I use clever lighting to create definition and emphasis and to highlight your fabulous curves.
However you may feel about your body, we’re here to support you and to photograph you however you feel most comfortable. Your guided photographic journey with us is carefully planned and your 100% satisfaction is guaranteed because we tailor your shoot to your individual needs and comfort level.
Beautiful wall art and print display options
Did you realise that looking at incredible portraits of yourself gives you a huge confidence boost? Well, they certainly do!
Just imagine how having an empowering, body-positive portrait of yourself in your home could make you feel. Looking upon it daily would be an instant pick-me-up!
Our amazing clients have come to realise this, and so choose to display their body-positive portraits as stunning wall art and as framed prints, or in the beautiful albums and box collections that we offer.
Even after more than 12 years in business, it’s extremely humbling to think that our portraits adorn the walls of thousands of homes across the country and are inspiring women every single day!
