A little poem by me, and of course a portrait…
I stripped down to my underwear, just for her
Hair and makeup, a snack and a drink
This is a first for me, what the hell did I think?
She had a touch of magic and some sparkle in her soul,
This artist and her gear
And me with barely nothing to wear,
Soon my posing became a breeze,
She made me feel completely at ease.
Look at me so confident,
Look at me!
Look at me shining
Look at me!
Now that I shared in her amazing gift,
Look at me in print
I stripped down to my underwear, just for me!!!
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…
Traditional wedding outfit, look how gorgeous this is!
Meet Teri, she is a business woman, wife, mother, and so much more and she is breathtakingly beautiful!
Still have your wedding dress collecting dust in your cupboard? How about putting it on for a gorgeous portrait?
Teri, thank you for an amazing session, for the laughter and love gorgeous girl
Good Morning 🙂
My latest mom/daughter session. Natasha (Mom) and Chanel, this was a special one! I always ask my ladies to try bring matching outfits, because it makes a huge difference in a portrait. Natasha and Chanel came with the most gorgeous outfits and WOW just look at these gorgeous girls!!!
It was a special day for them, a bit of bonding time together, with lots of laughs and love and shared. Both posed so beautifully, both look so amazing! Their portraits will become their legacy and family heirloom to be treasured and remembered (this gives me goosebumps)
When I do a mom/daughter session, I photograph individual portraits and together portraits. We are doing two collection boxes here (because there are just too many gorgeous portraits to choice from).
Today is Natasha’s birthday, so my post is perfect timing to say:
“Natasha, happy birthday beautiful woman. Thank you for such special time together, thank you for trusting me to photograph you and Chanel, thank you for supporting my dream, thank you for your kindness and love and acceptance and generosity. I wish you so many more happy, healthy years ahead filled with love and magic”
“Chanel, you beautiful little lady, you are amazing! You are kind, smart, funny and gorgeous inside and outside. Stay this beautiful as you grow older, and I hope to photograph you through the years of you growing into the special woman I know you will be and thank you for your wine pouring skills 😉”
So much Love for you two.
This is my fourth year photographing Shaun, and I hope not the last.
Shaun updates his portfolio once a year and this year we did a casual look for him, and something for fun, Shaun is such a good sport!
Business man, father and friend.
Always fun Shaun, you gorgeous man!
Then I get to photograph Savina, who is seventy years young and drop dead gorgeous!
Savina is a published author, mother, grandmother, wife and avid lover of dancing and music.
I was privileged to received an autographed copy of her book “Falling in love with myself” by Savina Plescia Redpath, which I am almost done reading, it is an inspirational read to say the least. It is a story of the difficulties which an Italian prisoner of war and later immigrant family to South Africa had to endure, it is a story of accepting and learning to love herself as a complete and beautiful person.
Savina, I am so grateful to you, you are amazing in every way, kind, loving, compassionate and simply beautiful.
