Les received a portrait session as a gift for her 30th birthday this year, we started off in a gorgeous red dress and moved onto boudoir, which I will post a bit later.
I have put a voice testimony (on my testimony page) for you to listen to. I love what we do here so much. Boudoir, is the most empowering portrait session to do. Every girl should experience this, at least once in her life.
I want to take the most beautiful portrait of you, so I invite you to a personal session with me. It will change the way you see yourself
Today I want to talk around curves. I love curves! I have no problem with curves, I love photographing curves. Curves are beautiful too. I hear too often in my business “I need to lose weight first”, so I want to let you know that you do not need to, I promise. You see the secret is in posing. I’m the queen of posing (any body type actually), I know exactly what to do, this is part of my skill set, I have studied posing for 13 years, so I think I know what I am doing by now and you are safe with me. I can help you change your whole perspective of yourself in one portrait session. This is my gift and I share it with love and kindness. Come to me as you are, let me show you how beautiful you are. Curves and all!
Amelia, You are so beautiful my darling. Thank you for trusting me to bring out your beautiful. You are an amazing woman, inside out!
I’m doing a sneak peek of Amelia’s session from Friday. I
normally wait until viewing before I post anything, but we are very excited J
Amelia is my main prize winner from my event and she will
get my studio signature product (my 9 up frame).

Meet beautiful June. In the middle of chemotherapy, for the second time around. Double mastectomy, sixty two and sassy.
Ursula T: “Why did you choose me?”
June: “I saw your facebook advert where you said I know beautiful and I wanted that”
Ursula T: “Why did you do it?”
June: “I’m in chemo for the second time around and I’m not feeling beautiful at all, my hair is falling out and I just needed a pick me up, I wanted you to bring my beautiful out”
Ursula T: “How did you feel after your session, did you think we helped you feel beautiful?”
June: ” Yes! I would recommend this to any lady going through a difficult time and of course my hair and makeup was so beautifully done”
Dear June, Just look at you! you look like a queen, in the middle of all you are going through! You are beautiful and I am honoured that you chose me and trusted me to photograph you. I am deeply grateful for your support and I will never forget you.
I posted about this not so long ago and I had an amazing
response from you (Thank you for that). I’m the type of girl that follows
through with what I say and so, I’m putting myself out there.
My first power hour day Saturday 7th December 2019 let’s say from 2pm to 6pm
(I’ll create an event on fb too)….
Here is what I would like: A maximum of 5 ladies with similar stories as each other to join me in studio (chartwell north, fourways) in a safe, casual, loving environment. To share their story and be inspired and empowered by our get together. To do this, I encourage you to please send me an email – with the subject: Ursula T power hour – “insert your story description”. In the body of your email, I would love to hear a brief introduction (so I can put similar ladies together). I will respond and send you an official invite for the day. We will do snacks, chats, hugs and bubbles, laugh, cry, laugh some more. We will network and help those in business and start our own gang?
In case you are wondering, here is what I can chat around (from
my own personal experiences):
* childhood abuse
* marriage and divorce
* mental and emotional and physical abuse
* overcoming illness
* dealing with:
grief, loss, abandonment, self-worth, self-esteem, self-confidence
* building yourself up again
* learning to love yourself again
😍 I am deeply passionate about
If you know anyone that needs this, I would love to follow
through with this, but I obviously need your help to do it…
Please feel safe to email me on email@example.com, your story
may just help another soul who feels completely lost right now in life. Or drop
your email in the comments and I will reach out to you (or tag a bestie that
This is from a while back and today I want to talk around doing a boudoir session when you hit your 40’s and 50’s and upwards. This is the best age because we are over that awkward body shaming phase in our lives, we are more confident and more free to be ourselves (mostly)
Our bodies change with time, having children lifestyle etc. But this is perfectly ok. Please believe me when I say, I know how it feels not to love your body anymore. Here’s the thing about this topic…
Your size, age, colour, lumps and bumps, rolls and marks are perfectly beautiful to me. I don’t see it (what you think is your flaws, all I see is beautiful existence and a story to tell). There is no judgment in my studio, ever. Only a loving, caring and empowering environment.
My passion, is to help you feel beautiful, I’m good at this (In fact, I hear I am the best at this)
So let me empower you, let me show you how incredibly beautiful you are (flaws and all).
Come do a boudoir session with me, so I can help you see yourself in a different light.
It’s an incredible experience and I promise you are safe with me. I also promise you will leave here feeling like a million dollars (as you should anyway). I also promise a whole lot of fun and incredible printed products to treasure all the rest of your days.
Come try us?
PS beautiful Elmarie is 50+ and fabulous 😉 and all I had to do in post production is a few nips and tucks because she is already so incredible.
Good morning lovelies 🙂 I’m up early today, no idea why, but here I sit listening to the birds chirping and enjoying a cup of coffee, divine actually! Today, I want to talk around what a portrait is. Meet beautiful Cara. The first pic is a selfie (and how beautiful is Cara?), second pic is Cara’s before snapshot/pic and the third is well, a portrait.
I don’t think I need to explain any further because it’s quite obvious. Sometimes all a girl needs is a black number and a dash of red lips and Ursula T 😉
Cara is a corporate girl and came to me for her personal branding portfolio, personal branding is how you want to be noticed on platforms such as LinkedIn. When I asked Cara why she thinks it is so important she responded “try get a high profiled job with a crap photo and there are so many bad photos on LinkedIn, I loved your work and I wanted the best portrait of me for my social media presence, for my professional image”
Book your portrait sessions ladies and gents, let’s get you noticed on professional platforms like LinkedIn, it may help you get that interview/job
Here I was asking Susan to change her hands every time I clicked, it was spontaneous and fun, we were giggling the whole time, but Susan got into her groove and just rocked it 😉
Why do you need a portrait? It’s your legacy, it’s your story. It’s a piece of you that lives on long after you are not here. Every girl deserves a beautiful portrait of herself. I know beautiful and I will find yours😍😍😍 Book your sessions ladies, I won’t disappoint you. Have a beautiful day, keep smiling
