Just because I will always love a black and white portrait, here is another one of me striking a pose in front of camera for a change.

Phenomenal Woman

this is so worth the read!

Phenomenal Woman – Poem by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

This is me

For those of you that know a little about me,

2 severe strokes have left me half paralysed, going on 4 years soon! What a ride!

But here I am, with a gorgeous natural light studio, still shooting and doing what I love most.

Here is my latest portrait, I figure if I can pose my broken body, I can most certainly pose the gorgeous woman I am privileged to meet for their portrait shoots.

 

This is me:

Makeup Kits

As we are about to launch our Glitz and Glam classes (see transformation classes tab), I thought I would post a pic of some of the makeup included, it is called NEW CID, it is all that I use in my studio, and it is probably the best makeup I have ever used, my makeup artist is in love, and there is no doubt you will love it too.

Next class 29th May (only 6 ladies per class)

Mother’s Day is around the corner again, so why not spoil mum with a gift voucher for a mom/daughter, or granny/grand children portrait shoot?
