Another Family Portrait

I have been blessed in my studio of late, bookings are flowing and portraits are printing.

question from client: ” can I just get the digital file?”

my answer: ” I give a digital file with every portrait purchased, in 10 years time, what technology will be around? a cd? a usb stick? I think not, but a print lasts a lifetime :-)” so this is how my studio operates for those wishing to know. what could be more beautiful than a huge canvas on your wall of your favourite portrait. or would you choose a cd in the drawer which gets scratched and forgotten about.



Family portraits

before I show Angela’s portrait selection below, take a read on how she saw the experience:

A note from me: thank you Angela for sharing your beauty with me, and for your kind words always. You are a phenomenal woman, and I hope to capture your beauty again in the future:

Dearest Ursula,

It is not often that one has an opportunity to work with an amazing photographer, I was granted such privilege with you.  There are so many different stages in a womans life, each one not easy, but each one perfectly intended for that woman.  Photographs are a moment in time of this journey of experience of her joys, her loves and her trials.  It captures the beauty of each woman uniquely, that stage in her life – so much behind her and so much to look forward to ahead of her.  Photographs are indeed an incredibly special memoir to have.  Thank you for these stages captured in special moments, each beautiful image depicting the woman that I have become.  Sincerely appreciated.

Much love.


these two prints chosen are 10 X 15″ and I am an old fan of black and white, timeless portraits:

A thank you from Angela after her portrait shoot

I think for me, being able to take beautiful portraits, sharing a day of love and laughter with my clients, and receiving gratification is my greatest reward for my portrait photography business.

there is always an exchange of energies and Angela was just such a magnificent woman from our first meeting, here is an email I received after her shoot ( Thank you Angela)

Dear Ursula.

Thank you for the opportunity to be photographed so skillfully.  I had a wonderful time with you, make up and hair beautifully done, nibbles set out and a beautiful photographer and assistant to place me in some incredible poses !  Four hours of absolute fun!  I cant wait to see the moments you have captured and from the work you have previously presented, I have no doubt that the portraits will be absolutely exquisite !!  Thank you for the special care and attention on the day – this will be always incredibly special to me !
