secret location by the sea

or tucked away in the countryside

Loves, this is your invitation to be part of something truly wonderful.

Weaving in seasonality and celestial magick, we’ll gather at a secret location by the sea or in the countryside for a brand shoot, with community and connection at its heart.

As time in nature bathes us in its ethereal glow, we’ll embark on a journey of pure magick and connection, as I capture radically authentic images to support you in the powerful work you do.

Join a collective of soulful sisters as we gather, grounding ourselves and rediscovering the essence of who we are.

The gathering

Let's gather, immersed in nature

Together we’ll wander, share and participate in a transformative circle, setting creative intentions under the immensely powerful guide of the seasons. Throughout our time together, I’ll be there to capture the pure magick that unfolds as you soak in this incredible collective energy, with an informal and intimate shoot wrapping around it all.

After the event, not only will you have made connections with other like-minded women, you’ll receive a collection of images ready for you to showcase the profound beauty of this experience to promote your group offerings, share your wisdom and make a powerful impact on those you’re here to serve.

Feel into the magick that awaits

The Gathering will be hosted at a secret location immersed in nature that will be revealed after you book - I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Upon reserving your spot, you’ll receive full details of our secret meeting place, where we’ll meet and gather together.

What to expect:

  • Enjoy a grounding welcome as we gather together.
  • Embark on a beach wander, beach combing, rock pooling and getting to know new souls who have gathered together.
  • A relaxed brand shoot will flow, distilling moments with the collective and each person will have a solo moment for some individual portraits, all captured as we explore the coastline or countryside.
  • Engage in mindful moments of pausing, grounding by the sea or the trees
  • Nourishing connection with other soul sisters, immersing yourself in this powerful collective energy.
  • As light starts to fade, our guest host will take us over the threshold into circle - grab your blankets and cosies as we gather round the fire.
  • Bring your crystals to charge, your sage & any other precious things you hold close during the full moon ceremony.
  • Set your intentions and dance as the light of day fades, with me capturing the magick through intimate portraits under the evening's captivating glow.
  • After The Gathering, you’ll receive a collection of radically authentic and empowering images that tell the story of nature connected sisterhood, for you to use to step into the power of your visibility.
  • But even more impactful are the nourishing connections that will root with yourself and others we gather with.

The potential that emerges when like minded women gather is truly epic.

Sounds divine, I'm in.

Would you like to guest host?

Let's co-create magick together

At the heart of The Gathering is the collective. As we step over the threshold into a grounding circle.

While I love facilitating circles, it’s simply not possible to hold space and shoot at the same time. So, with community and collaboration at the heart of this beautiful offering, it presents the opportunity for each event to have a guest host to facilitate the circle.

If you’re soul-aligned wild woman and feel the pull to join me in guest hosting The Gathering, I would love to hear from you. No matter where you’re based in the UK, let’s join forces to bring together like-minded souls and co-create something wonderful.

Maybe you have the perfect location in mind for The Gathering and want to bring it to your community, I would love to know more.

The Gathering is a sacred space for soulful heart-led entrepreneurs to connect and be captured in radically authentic brand images. As a guest host, you’ll be paid for your facilitation and will have access to the images.

It would be a joy to co-create magick with you.

More info & FAQs

I want to book but I don’t know anyone going, is that ok?

Absolutely! You’re more than welcome to book even if you don’t know anyone else attending the event. In fact, many participants will join on their own, seeking personal growth and connections within a supportive community.

The opening circle at the beginning of the event is designed so you can meet your fellow Gatherers and create a sense of connection and community. It’s a beautiful opportunity to meet like-minded women who are also embarking on their own journeys.

I encourage you to embrace this experience as a chance to connect, make new friends and share in the collective energy of the event. You’ll find that the gathering provides a warm and inclusive space where you can feel comfortable and supported.

How does the collective shoot work?

During the collective shoot, I’ll be capturing the essence of our time together in a natural and documentary style. As we embark on our beach wander, everyone will be encouraged to follow their own pace and engage in activities that resonate with them. Whether you choose to beach comb, explore the rock pools or simply pause and take in the beauty of the sea, I’ll be there to document these moments.

Throughout the beach wander, I’ll guide the group and share insights about the surroundings - my motherland - and the wonders of nature. This will be the perfect opportunity for me to capture individual portraits, both close-ups and wider shots, showcasing your connection with the seascape.

When we gather for the moon circle, I’ll photograph the entire circle as well as individual shots, capturing you in community with other souls.

As the circle closes and the moon rises, we’ll put on some tunes so we can move our bodies in celebration and welcome the moon rise, and I’ll be there to capture these joyful moments.

My goal is to create a collection of photographs that authentically depict our shared experience and unique images of each individual within the collective. By blending candid and guided photography, my aim is to create a visual story that reflects the magic and connections formed during our special time together.

Will I be able to use all the photos?

When you book, as part of the contract, you’ll be asked to confirm your consent for your image to be captured in the collective photos. This means that everyone involved will have the ability to use the photos you’re in for business purposes.

In addition, when I share the gallery of photos, you’ll find subfolders. The main folder, titled ‘The Gathering - for everyone to use,’ will contain the collective photos that can be used by all participants. Each individual will also have their own mini-shoot subfolder, exclusively for their personal use. This ensures that you have access to your own set of photos while still contributing to the collective gallery.

How many photos will there be?

You can expect 10 images from your mini session during the event and at least 100 images of The Gathering as it all unfolds.

What if it’s cloudy?

In the event of cloudy skies, our gathering will still take place. I recommend bringing a thicker blanket for added comfort. While we always honour the energy of the moon, the visibility of its ascent may be affected by cloud cover. However, if the clear skies do clear and we’re able to witness her emerging from the sea, it will be a truly divine treat for us all.

What if it rains?

Weather forecasts have never been more unreliable than they are now - in 13 years of shooting, this past year has been wild. In the case of a small chance of rain, like a teeny shower, we’ll aim to go ahead with The Gathering as planned.

However, if it appears that rain will significantly impact the event, a decision will be made 24 hours in advance based on the forecast.

If it looks like the beach wander could go ahead, we’ll enjoy that part of the evening before moving to an indoor venue for the moon circle, capturing cosy indoor vibes.

If it looks like the beach wander can’t go ahead, a partial refund will be offered for that part of the event and we’ll relocate to an indoor venue for the moon circle, ensuring a warm and inviting setting for cosy indoor vibes.

If we can’t shoot outside and it’s not possible to secure an alternative indoor location, you’ll have the option to transfer your booking to the next event on Monday 27th Nov for the Full Moon in Gemini:. Alternatively, a full refund will be given.

I want to ensure your experience is enjoyable and that we can adapt to the best possible arrangements given the weather conditions.

Where will the event take place?

It’s really important for me to create a safe and intimate atmosphere for our event. After booking your ticket, you’ll receive a welcome email containing all the necessary details about the event location. I value the sense of exclusivity and connection that comes from keeping the location a secret, and it will only be shared with the souls who’ve chosen to gather with us.

Rest assured, I’ve carefully selected a special venue that aligns with the energy and intention of the event, creating a sacred space for our collective experience.

What happens after booking?

After booking your spot, you’ll receive a detailed welcome email providing you with helpful hints and tips to ensure you’re well prepared for the brand shoot experience. It will include a ‘Getting to know you’ form that allows me to learn more about you and your specific vision for the images you’d like to capture during our mini session at the event.

Additionally, the email will include a tick list of items to bring for the moon circle, ensuring you have everything you need to fully immerse yourself in this magical experience.

What if I need to cancel?

I understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise and sympathise with any need to cancel. However, please note that the cancellation policy is strict, and unfortunately, I’m unable to provide refunds.

I kindly ask for your understanding and encourage you to check you’ll be able to attend the event before booking. I’m committed to delivering a memorable and transformative experience and greatly value your commitment to joining us. Should you have any concerns or questions regarding this policy, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me and I’ll be happy to assist you.

The time has come to gather, share & allow our creativity to flourish

I can’t express my excitement to host this event, and I’m delighted to have the wonderful soul Hannah Rzysko guest hosting and guiding us through the moon circle. Hannah’s fusion of science, somatics and soulful self discovery is truly remarkable.

The time has come to gather, share and allow our creativity to flourish under the extraordinary power of the super moon.
