"After seeing the images,
I am so proud of my body,
what it has been through,
and what I am still to achieve in it."

Hi, I am Luana,
a UK Intimate Portrait Photographer.

Welcome to my corner of the internet - what brought you here?

If you are looking for a supportive, open and

empathetic photographer who's going to accept you

and celebrate you for who you truly are, I am your gal.

Please make yourself comfy and have a look around.


What does Intimate mean?

My use of "Intimate" is based on the Italian word "Intimo", which has a slightly different meaning from its English equivalent.

"Intimo" describes the deepest, most secret place in your soul, and it can represent the most profound connection between individuals or oneself.

The "tocco intimo" (intimate touch) is only for the people most close to you and it's not sexual: it seeks connection and meaning. Sharing your intimate space means sharing a place of mutual comfort and vulnerability, where you feel safe.

To me, intimate means personal, emotional, confidential, and unique.

It means finding empowerment in being vulnerable and genuine, by connecting to your true self and your inner child without restrictions.

With my intimate portrait photography sessions, I create space to allow you to be just yourself - and I capture it, without filters.

“The final photos are all about feeling good about yourself and each

shot is like a high-five to loving your body just the way it is."

"From the very second we met to shoot, Luana put me at total ease - and any reservations I had flew out the window.

I felt 100% comfortable and empowered"

Written by Jen

"I could not be prouder, or happier with the results. Photography is such a beautiful way to connect with our

bodies and I have never seen anyone

do it in the same way as Lu."

Is this for you?

Well, let's have a think.

This is for you if you are on a self-acceptance journey and ready to celebrate and love your body how it is, and for all the incredible things it does for you.

This is for you if you want to give yourself a chance to shine, to get rid of all the BS society throws at us every day and look at yourself from the eyes of someone who thinks you are gorgeous, strong, and amazing (that's me, your cheerleader!).

This is for you if you are tired of constantly comparing yourself to others, you are done with avoiding that mirror and you don't understand why you see the beauty everywhere but within yourself.

I have been (and sometimes still am) in all of those places. And I understand how hard it is, I really do.

This is why this is for you, full stop. Thanks to my own experience, I can help you let go of all fears and just enjoy being your true self.

After our empowering experience, you will see how powerful and amazing you are for being just you.

We are often told that "just us" is not enough.

Oh darling, it's enough and some!

And having those photos, your forever keepsakes, will be proof that you are:






What are you waiting for?

Let's work together to ignite that inner strenght.

It's already in there, somewhere, it just needs a little push!


A photography experience to celebrate
your body and your uniqueness

Through intimate portraiture, I will capture a true representation of you, without heavy retouching, makeup or provocative posing. I have a strict NO PHOTOSHOP rule.

Your genuine beauty and strength in whatever way is meaningful to you will shine through:

dressed, naked, in nature, or doing something you love. 

Working together, we will shape this intimate portrait photography session around YOU. 

We will create an experience that embraces you as you are.
