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
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.
My business model, broken down a bit:
1) Your session
2) Your viewing
3) Your product
Being a full service portrait photographer, means going to print, believe me, this is a whole new level of skill required. I have kept my product offering simple, and I trust my suppliers to produce quality for my clients.
Yay, yay, it’s friday, and it’s my moon and stars weekend.
Wishing a safe, warm happy weekend to all 🙂
“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.
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!!
