studio portraits

“sweet sixteen and never been posed”

Yes I photograph boys/men/families, but I specialise in woman’s glamour, because I love empowering woman.
This boy has a very special place in my heart, his name is Tom, it is Andrew’s son, who is sixteen today – what a special birthday this is!
My gift to him was a portrait session and a canvas of his choice, he was over the moon and understands the sentiment of this being a treasure to look at one day when he is old and wrinkled (like me he says – cheeky boy!)

I asked Tom how he felt after his session with me, he said “the girl got skills, I felt like a model”, and he is gorgeous!

Oh, I also did this set outside my studio (nice change of environment for me), I love this wall! Tom helped me walk and set me up outside with a chair and a glass of wine of course 😉

My style doesn’t change when photographing the other species (chuckle), I still shoot soft and edit them the same as I would a girl/lady. Posing changes obviously, but everything else is the same for me.

I’ll post a few more once I finish his editing

I love you Tom! Happy 16th birthday! You are awesome in every way, thank you for loving me as I am, for always making me smile and laugh, and for never, not once, making me feel like I am disabled.

Much Love
Mamma T 

 

I’ll end my day off with a portrait of Catia – Mari’s BFF.

I love shooting black on black, there is always magic in it.

Catia, you beautiful woman! Inside and out

Have an amazing weekend everyone, I have a weekend off – so excited 🙂

Much Love
Me

Because I am a black and white fan…

Today I want to talk a little bit around the many objections I hear on a daily basis (us women are really funny creatures sometimes, it makes me chuckle)

Are you nervous to have a professional portrait session with me, but always wanted to do it?
Don’t be, here’s why:
** my setup is a humble home based, natural light studio in the country side. It is peaceful and relaxing here – I love my space so much, so will you.
** it’s not about loosing weight before you book me – curves are beautiful too – I am the posing master to slim you down automatically in front of camera, and anything else can be sorted out in post production anyway.
** it’s not about age either – we all want to feel and look younger, I can do that easily in post production, by lightening (not removing) shadows under wrinkles – takes years off!
** Wardrobe/I don’t have anything to wear – bring what you have, I will help you choose on the day and it will be perfect!
** Budget – aaah the big one – yes this is an investment, yes this is a luxury service. Am I worth it? I believe so from the depths of my soul. Are you worth it? TOTALLY! Why wouldn’t you want a beautiful treasure of yourself to look back on one day and pass on to loved ones (before it’s too late). I always help my clients here wherever I can (payment plans can be arranged too)

Every woman deserves a beautiful portrait of herself!

I’m the girl for that, I am the best at what I do, and I promise I won’t disappoint you. Besides, I am fun and full of love and respect for my ladies.

Come try me – let this be your portrait year, a celebration of YOU as you are!

Much Love

nd this is how we do boudoir here – lots more to follow, this will be an extra large canvas to hang above Deidre’s bed. It will be exquisite!!

Deidre was here last Thursday for her glamour and boudoir session, today was her viewing and product order. Product takes a week or two to get to studio. within one month of your session you have your viewing and product – fantastic turn around time (which I will never deviate from, service means everything to me!)

This is what Deidre had to say:
Ursula. T: ” Why did you choose me?”
Deidre: “I was attracted to your story, you are a special woman, then I saw your images and I was hooked””
Ursula. T: ” Why did you do it?”
Deidre: ” My hubby (Dave) has been asking me for years to do something like this for him, I saw your advert and profile, and decided in that moment, no hesitation to do it with you”
Ursula. T: ” How did you feel before, during your session with me?”
Deidre: ” Nervous and excited, relaxation and comfortable”
Ursula. T: ” How did you feel after your session?”
Deidre: ” Fulfilled and invigorated”

Ursula. T: ” How do you feel after seeing your images?”
Deidre: ” Amazing, I never thought I would see myself like that, you have a gift, I look beautiful”

Ursula. T: “What would you tell potential clients wanting to book me?”
Karen: ” Totally worth doing it, the entire experience is a special one and a must for every woman”

Dear Deidre, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! You are breathtaking! I will never forget our time together, our roll on the boudoir bed, our laughs, my Moet spoils, your incredible presence, which left me fulfilled and full of goosebumps! Beautiful, beautiful, enriching soul.

Thank you to my special Merichen for gorgeous hair and makeup (as always)

Much Love
Ursula. T

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 🙂

You’ve heard the words “Boudoir Session”, but what exactly is a boudoir photography session? Should you get one done? A boudoir session is a photography session where you wear sexy outfits, lingerie, dresses, or even go scantily clad and get your photographs taken. While these sessions can seem intimidating here are the top eight reasons why you SHOULD do a boudoir session!
1. YOU’LL LOOK AMAZING
Professional hair and makeup, a professional photographer, and professional retouching equals some of the best portraits of yourself that you will ever see. I often tell my clients to schedule a night out after getting their portraits done, because they will look and feel amazing! Waiting to lose those perpetual “Last 5, 10, or 15 pounds”? DON’T! Professional photographers know how to pose you to flatter your individual body type.
2. IT MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR YOUR GROOM/HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND/SIGNIFICANT OTHER!
Imagine the look on his face when you surprise him with a little album filled with sensuous pictures of the one he loves! He thinks you’re beautiful on your worst hair days and in your yoga pants, so show him how smoking hot you are in classy lingerie and professional makeup! It may be a side he’s never seen!
3. IT MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR YOU!
Show off your beauty and give yourself an esteem boost with photographs that you can treasure. Do it for yourself. Be pampered. Indulge. Love every minute!
4. YOU’RE ALREADY WORKING IT FOR THE WEDDING
You’ve been on a skin care regimen for the last six months and skipped the donuts in the conference room to make sure you look the best for your wedding day. Show off you hard work and document such a momentous time in your life.
5. YOU GET TO GO SHOPPING!
Women tend to put others first in their lives a lot of the time. Take some time out for yourself and go shopping for yourself! There is nothing like retail therapy right? The best part? All of the great pieces you purchase can make other appearances in more intimate settings!
6. MAKE IT A GIRL’S DAY OUT!
Need a little confidence boost to come in for a session? Make it a girl’s day out! Choose a few of your BFF’s and do a session together! I offer portrait parties, a special girl’s day out collections that include a day of pampering, food, wine, and each lady getting her time in front of the camera!
7. IT WILL EMPOWER YOU
Getting treated like a celebrity for a few hours is great therapy for anyone! But wait until you get to see the photographs for the first time. You will be blown away. You will see how gorgeous you really are and it will put a little pep in your step!
8. IT’S A GREAT WAY TO CELEBRATE A MILESTONE
Have an anniversary coming up or just scored a well-deserved promotion? Why not get this time in your life documented in a gratifying way? Not only will you have gorgeous portraits of yourself, but when you look at them you’ll remember how amazing this time in your life was! Celebrate it!

Contact Ursula. T today to book your spot for Valentine’s day and spoil yourself and loved one a bit.

Another portrait for Jessica:

 

Tina is an incredible woman, and our session was filled with fun, laughter and love.

My viewing of your portraits generally happens the following week, this is where product is ordered. For Tina we are doing my signature 9-up frame as well as a large framed print. Product takes less than two weeks to arrive at studio. This is the print layout of Tina’s 9-up and her single portrait from her session.

Oh so beautiful:

A little while ago, I posted around my 50 and fabulous portrait session for Andrew.

I couldn’t think of a better gift to give him, a little piece of my soul and a whole lot of love goes into each session that I do. When product is delivered, my soul literally does a happy dance!

Here are some cell phone snappies showing size, and placement of portrait. I chose this spot for Andrew’s portrait, because firstly there is skylight that not only lights by day but by night too, secondly, the stair well and upper deck to his house are a noticeable feature.

PS Tom is his eldest son, called me to say thank you and to tell me that this is his one day, he loves how I have captured his dad for all eternity. Special family heirloom here indeed
