Finding confidence in front of the camera with NoLoGo-chic

A few weeks ago I travelled down to Somerset for a weekend away with some other bloggers. It was a chance to reconnect with friends and take some time away for myself, to try and find myself again.

I have written about The Retreat and how it has helped me to find my focus again. There were so many brilliant sessions and one of the ones that pushed me out of my comfort zone was the photoshoot session with Derek Lomas.

We were all gifted some clothes from the very lovely Tina from NoLoGo-chic and Derek showed us how best to pose and how best to use lighting for the most flattering photo.

I am used to having either Mr F or Gracie taking photos of me but posing in front of other people was out of my comfort zone completely. But, I did what I always do and I faked it until I truly believed I was comfortable.

After a while I didn’t feel so nervous and we ended up with some lovely shots!

I just adore this dress! I love the soft material, I love the colour, the fit and the fact that it has pockets!

While the others in the group were having their photos taken, I got changed and asked the lovely Molly (Mother’s Always Right) to take few photos.

Such a great summer dress – I can’t wait to wear it on holiday in the summer. It is lightweight and despite being a maxi dress it is very flattering in the fit.

Tina has some gorgeous dresses on her site, my favourites being the jersey dresses – so flattering! I have had so many compliments when I have worn my spotty jersey dress – it is a staple for the school run now!

If you love colourful clothing, ethically sourced fabrics and a touch of luxury then head over NoLoGo-chic to see what else Tina has to offer.

Big thank you to Tina for the gorgeous dresses – I love them!
