We are always beautiful

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

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
