My latest mom and daughter portrait session. the very beautiful Nadia (daughter) and Orlanda (who is in her fifties btw – like WOW – look how stunning she is?)
This is one of my favourite sessions to do, and it always fascinates me to see the gene pool passed down, the bond between a mother and her daughter, which is always so special for me to be a part of, creating a family heirloom for generations to come.
Nadia, Orlanda; deeply grateful to you both. Thank you for your kindness, your support, and your trust in me.
We are doing a 9-up frame and two small canvases for them – all beautifully chosen!
Now it is moon and stars time 🙂 What a beautiful day this is.
Before I get lost in editing my boudie babe for tomorrow’s viewing, here is a portrait from a mom/daughter session beginning January. Moira and Alexandra, enjoyed a day out together (girl time), while a little nervous before their session, they felt relaxed and good during, and they both had fun.
We will be doing this image as a large, framed print behind non-reflective glass. Precious memory to have.
Moira (Mom)was a bit stressed about wardrobe choice prior their session, but just look how beautiful they are in black on black. Moira is sixty years young – just look at her! Totally gorgeous!!
This will one day be a priceless heirloom for generations to follow.
Moira and Alexandra, you are incredible. Thank you for supporting me, thank you for loving me. In my heart forever more. You are both so beautiful! PS Angelique says hi 🙂
Oh my goodness Jessica, look at you! Classical beauty. Thank you for a special session.
This is what Jessica had to say:
Ursula. T ” Why did you choose me?”
Jessica: “Overcoming your disability is an inspiration”
Ursula. T ” Why did you do it?”
Jessica: “to feel beautiful, and see myself through someone else’s eyes”
Ursula. T ” How did you feel before, during and after session?”
Jessica: ” a little bit nervous, relaxed and comfortable, beautiful”
Ursula. T ” How do you feel after your viewing”
Jessica: ” I think, wow I am beautiful”
Yes you are Jessica, in every way! Thank you for sharing that with me.
I never do sneak peeks before a client’s viewing, because I want to keep the magic going and I want my clients to have first sight of their portraits before posting. Here I am making an exception a) because I love it and b) because it will be a while still till Raaesa sees her final edited images.
This is Raaesa, and she is beautiful!
And this is my new posing wall, I didn’t Stand after all for this series, my nerves got the better of me, but I am love with this moody look and feel on my textured suede wall with directional natural light. It has it’s own look and feel and for me, well I love creating interesting portraits. I will post a flat natural light image next, so you can see the difference in styles.
Book your maternity sessions ladies! I love shooting bumps
