Did you know that portrait photography can help you to boost your happiness and your self-esteem?
While a portrait photography session here at Johanna Elizabeth is certainly an empowering experience, our clients are living proof that there are long-term benefits too!
Reclaim your happiness and boost your self-esteem
So many of our lovely ladies have told us that having a portrait shoot with us has been nothing short of life-changing.
Plus, they say that viewing their portraits on the walls of their home every day afterwards helps to keep the positive vibes going.
Their portraits make them feel happier and more confident about themselves. They remind them that they ARE enough!
A proven link between displaying portraits and a sense of self-worth
To be honest, we are never surprised to hear this!
Studies have shown that having portraits around the home can boost a person’s self-confidence. Photos can be a visual reminder of a positive experience or time in the past, and they can evoke positive feelings, and give joy and comfort when they’re looked at.
A study in 1975, known as The Murfreesboro Study, reported that a group of 10-year-old children with low self-esteem reported a 37% increase in their self-esteem scores after taking photographs of themselves and viewing them regularly over a period of five weeks.
It’s amazing to think that the simple act of looking at self-portraits led to such an uplift in those children’s self-esteem!

Boost your self-esteem and happiness through portrait photography
So, now you know that having portraits on display can boost your happiness and sense of self-esteem. Just imagine how much you could benefit from having empowering portraits of yourself in your home!
Here in the studio, our very own Ange recently had portraits taken of her gorgeous young family. Working with me, she’s no stranger to the power of portrait photography but this time, she rediscovered it for herself.
After a devastating time this summer, with her husband and father of their kids walking out on them suddenly, they all needed a boost and a reminder that they ARE enough.
She told me that the portraits have given her a confidence boost and made her feel so much more self-assured, which is brilliant to hear.
Even more importantly, her kids love them too.
They certainly needed to see, in a portrait, tangible proof that they are a brand new family unit and mummy isn’t going anywhere.
When her new family framed portrait arrived, I couldn’t resist surprising her by mounting it on the wall in our studio reception. She burst into tears when she first saw it, bless her! She loved it!
It’s now hanging pride of place at home, working on their self esteem every day.
