CJ

I have photographed many warrior woman in my studio, but this lady is just phenomenal, I am privileged to have met and spent time with her.

This is CJ, breast cancer survivor, she has the scars to show of her incredibly brave journey, and yet she is kind and still smiles at the world.

I am reminded constantly in my business, how relentless the human spirit is and how brave women can be.

 

This is Cj, she is beautiful…

Sweet Sixteen and never been posed

“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

Boudoir

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

Deidre – Boudoir

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
