Lizzy C Photography, Melbourne Photographer

Portrait Profile: Natropath Nadine Bedewi

What do you do? Tell us a bit about what you do.

I’ve been a Naturopath for over 20 years, helping my clients live happier lives with natural health care.  I’m on a mission to help as many people as I can to learn that there is a way to be healthy and vibrant without having to live like a monk.  Everything I do is built around getting real results for my busy, time-poor clients.

Tell me about how you got into your field.

I was always fascinated by my grandmother’s use of herbs from her kitchen to help us when we felt sick.  I knew from experience that they worked, and I continued my love of simple herbal remedies into my adult life.  When my first-born was diagnosed with asthma, I felt like I should be doing more to help him by learning about diet and natural remedies.  So I quit my job and went back to Uni to study Naturopathy.  What I learned changed my son’s life, and I couldn’t wait to help others too.  So here I am… 23 years later, absolutely loving making a difference in the world.

What is the best piece of career advice you’ve received?

The best career advice I ever received was to do what you are passionate about, and do it well.  I put my heart and soul into my work because it means so much to me, and I totally love it.

Why did you choose to have professional profile photos taken and what will you use your portraits for?

I felt it was time for my practice to get a facelift.  So I rebranded and updated some of my processes.  Part of that meant that I wanted a fresh new look throughout (for me too!).  So I decided to get some new headshots done to use on my website, social media and print marketing.

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?

I started with a google search of professional photographers.  When I saw Lizzy’s work, I was so impressed with how natural, yet professional the photos looked. All her subjects seemed to be at ease and look approachable, and I knew I wanted my photos to have the same feel.  I thought her fees were very affordable too.

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?

I had tonnes of fun on my shoot.  Lizzy helped me feel relaxed and knew how to get the “stiffness” out of my poses.  I really love the results and I’ve already recommended her to my family and friends.
