A poem by Ursula T

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!!!

Sixty is the new thirty

For the ladies that I have photographed and who have been to their personal viewing with me, I do a viewing “interview”, where I ask about their experience around their session with me. This is for me to learn and grow in my business, and of course used as a marketing tool.

This is what 99.9% of my ladies tell me:

* My facebook page and advertising is where I am found, I am 
chosen because my work sells itself and they love my success
story, most find me both inspirational and professional
* to feel and look beautiful, self esteem and confidence booster,
present for hubby, present for themselves, achieving a
milestone (such as special birthday’s or weight loss), meeting
me and spending time with me – are the main reasons for
booking me
* they are all very nervous and excited before their session
* they all feel relaxed after their pamper and during their session
* they are all tired but elevated and leave feeling good about
themselves, as well as feeling and looking beautiful after their
sessions.
* they love, love their viewing of their portraits, most cry 😉, and
tell me they can’t believe it is them, they never saw themselves
as being beautiful before.

I know beautiful ladies – and I will find yours.

My personal definition of a portrait:

“To me, a portrait is a creative collaboration between an artist and a sitter, and it’s unique in that sense, as an art form… kind of like a dance between artist and sitter..”
It is not a snap shot/photograph, it takes time to compose, set up, engage and connect with the subject, kind of like magic…

Portrait ideas:

* A glamorous you, for you!
* boudoir
* personal branding/business headshots
* sisters
* best friends
* moms and daughters/sons
* children
* family
* pets
* semi nude fine art
* brides and bridesmaids

Book your sessions ladies, we won’t disappoint you:

Much Love

Portrait Glamour

Going back a little, to Leigh’s portrait session. Her smile is infectious! She told me during her session, that she never really liked her smile, but she has learnt to embrace it now. I am so glad she did, because it is GORGEOUS!

Women are such self critical creatures, we all do it to ourselves.

I did a consult yesterday in studio, and my lady asked me what my demographic is in my business model, this was my answer:
” I want to photograph any woman, who has ever looked at herself in the mirror and not felt good enough about herself at any time in her life – because I know beautiful!”

Love yourself NOW ladies!

Much love

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

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

Catia, you beautiful woman! Inside and out
