“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 

 

Hello my lovelies,

I have been receiving a few messages lately asking me if I photograph woman of colour, so I want to address it here 😉

I absolutely do, and I photograph them beautifully too!

This is Tabby, from not so long ago, she had never been photographed before, imagine the excitement!

My facebook page and my blog display my recent/current sessions, and it just so happens that I have no ladies of colour booking me recently. This makes me sad, so please go ahead and book your glamour sessions with me – I won’t dissapoint you, I promise.

Much Love
Ursula T

Gorgeous Tami, my boudie babe from a while back.

To me, boudoir does not have to be bits and bobs showing (unless that’s what you want), boudoir can be subtle and upmarket and leave something for the imagination.

Are you shy?
We all are in front of the camera, but this is where I step in, you see I am really good at what I do, I am a loving, caring, fun, professional, and I promise you have nothing to worry about. My sessions are structured and posed, so by the time we start, you will feel relaxed and comfortable. You have no idea how much fun it is to run around in your underwear for the day (how often do we get to do that?). My country studio is home based, humble and private, it becomes your home for the day too, it’s divine here, and we drink wine to calm the nerves 😉

Do you feel like you are overweight?
Curves are beautiful too! Posing is key here, and posing is my game. Anything extra can be nipped and tucked in post production editing. You will look gorgeous, trust me! Most things can be handled in post production, I do listen to what my clients want 😉

I’m on a huge boudoir drive ladies, it’s my favourite genre because I think we are all beautiful and we should be celebrating our bodies and ourselves.

Come try me, I won’t disappoint you, take me up on my March madness madness boudoir sale – it’s ending soon!!

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

Before my viewings, I interview my clients to learn about their experience and feelings doing a session with me.

I believe that the experience is a healing in itself, whether it be a confidence booster, self esteem booster etc. There is nothing like seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes (and I have said this before, I have a gift in this department – I only see beautiful, when I am photographing)

I touched on this with an earlier post for Mari, who has motor neuron disease, this is a terrible, degenerative disease, and my heart goes out to Mari, who has no use of her legs anymore, but yet she is still smiling.

during her interview, she said something profound to me, and this is what I want to share here:

When I asked Mari, why she did her session with me, this was her reply:
She related to my own disability, and her disability hurts her and makes her sad, but she did it to prove that her illness does define her and she is still beautiful. she added, no matter what your challenges are – you are still beautiful.

So ladies, today, look in the mirror and repeat after me:
“I am beautiful, I am enough, I am worthy, I am AWESOME!”

Much love

Hello 🙂

I’ve been off line for a bit…

Monday I spent the afternoon with Samantha Cowen, doing a panel interview for “Woman leading from the edge”. It was a motivational panel for women in business, where I got to spend time with each group answering questions. Although I have photographed Sam before, and spent time with her too, I was so nervous before, I am not a good public speaker (but working on that). I have a few videos, which I will post to my website in the next day or so (www.ursula-t.com).It ended up being a fun experience, I owe a very special thank you to Sandra, my client, my friend, for supporting me – physically to walk in, for moral backup, for encouragement and love and care received on the day (and for the tequila afterwards 😉) Thank you beautiful Sandra.

Who knows, perhaps this is where my path is taking me – the inspirational portrait photographer??? mmmm, let’s see.

My PC has been upgraded today, happy days! it is lightning fast now, so editing will be easier.

And now I’m back online – yayyy

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.

Much Love

Ursula T “Why did you choose me?”
Leandri ” because of the honesty in your posts, that I could relate to and your beautiful pictures”
Ursula T “Why did you do it?”

Ursula. T ” How did you feel before your session?”
Leandri” Nervous and excited at the same time”
Ursula. T ” How did you feel during your session?”
Leandri ” Exposed lol, but it was fun running around in my underwear for the day, I felt free”

Ursula. T “What would you tell potential clients?”
Leandri “Go for the experience, the truthfulness of knowing yourself differently”

Good Morning 🙂

This is Leandri, and she is so beautiful! This was an emotional session, there were lots of tears shed, lots of laughs too, and then a few more tears.

I think in itself, this is a very healing experience, and I am a good listener, and I love giving hugs! Even if I have to do it sitting down 😉

Come try me ladies, I won’t disappoint you.

Trying to get my ursulaT mailbox working (my website domain has changed to Ursula-t.com) but I am technically challenged! That is my mission for the week (then my brand has been changed) then I will be working on a fancier website – I might need lot’s of wine for this exercise, but I will do it (Wish me luck)

Leandri, you are beautiful, thank you for trusting me, thank you for sharing, thank you for supporting my dream.

Much love
Ursula. T
