Karen’s Celebrating your Age session

When you meet women like Karen, you feel super inspired.

This stunning lady oozes with positivity and a lust for life.  She studied to become a nurse when she was in her 40’s and now is a qualified nurse who loves her job!  That is amazing.

Karen recently celebrated a very special birthday and wanted to celebrate her age with one of my beautiful styled studio sessions. I love it when women come in to the studio and allow us to add a little bit of our magic to their session.  She definitely is gorgeous and so we only had to enhance what was there already.   Welcome to our fab #over50 age group Karen, your best years is definitely here.

Thank you for being such an easy subject to photograph.  We sure did have great fun!

Love,

Natasha

Celebrating your Age – Desiree

When your subject is as beautiful inside as she is outside then you get THIS gorgeous end result.

I find that as we grow older we seem to forget to invest into certain things in our lives.  The one thing most of us don’t do/very seldom do, is a gorgeous photo session of ourself and our husband/partner.  We stop investing into professional portraiture when our kids leave home.  Why? … I came to the conclusion that we are very brainwashed by the advertising media.  We are bombarded by ad campaigns using young girls and couples and this way they are telling us that we don’t matter anymore.  I’ve noticed that hardly any of my friends and their friends ever arrange a photo session for themselves.

Us, the over 45 year young generation, need to celebrate our age, our lives and our husbands/partners.  We need to invest into our history and we need to leave something behind for our children and grand children to see how we celebrate life with all it’s ups and downs, wrinkles and all.  Celebrate milestones … wedding anniversaries, birthdays and friendships.  This year my hubby and I will be married 30 years.  On our 25th anniversary we arranged a photo session and this year we are doing the same.  This time around I’m going all out and having a dress made for the photo session.  Being a photographer in Joondalup, I have all the beautiful beaches surrounding me and so my options for locations is endless.

Anyway, back to my gorgeous couple … Desiree & Rob are a great couple who values beautiful portraiture.   They have a special wall in their house dedicated to showing their family history through photo’s. Each year they add more as their family grows larger.  Desiree, it was an honour to photograph your #celebratingyourage studio session.  You have a heart of gold and the smile of a cover girl.  Rob, you compliment Des in all her beauty and you 2 make a stunning couple.  Who would believe me if I said these 2 are the grandparents of 3 gorgeous little ones.

Dear blog reader, if you have not had any professional portraiture done for a while, you need to get in touch with me asap.  My glamour & portraiture studio is situated in Jindalee, in the northern suburbs of Perth.  It is so worth your while to add beautiful images to your history.

Much love,

Natasha

Mary’s Celebrate your Age Photo session

Meet Mary, a gorgeous lady (and grandma) celebrating her fabulous age. She is a fashion insta-blogger who shares her beautiful style with her fellow 50+ girls.  She has great taste and a great eye for detail.  Mary is a great example of what I would describe as a classic beauty with lots of style & finesse.

We had an absolutely fabulous time with you Mary and I love your images.

Much love,

Natasha

Laetitia & Amanda’s mother & daugther session

I love it when people see the value of being photographed.

Laetitia gave me a call to book a session for herself and her daughter, Amanda. Both are celebrating special birthdays and as Laetitia put it, these are milestones that needs to be celebrated and photographed. This gorgeous mom will be turning 50 and Amanda just celebrated her 21st birthday.

Thank you for letting us be part of such a special time in your lives. We enjoyed dressing you up and love the end result!

Happy birthday to both of you 🙂

Love,
Natasha

Maxeen

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” – Audrey Hepburn

If ever a quote describes someone perfectly, this one is it! Maxeen is a stunning 79 year young wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and a fantastic friend to all her friends. She is kind hearted, soft, gentle and always goes out of her way to help anyone in need. When I look at her, I see the light that shines from within, the inner beauty.

What I loved the most about this specific photo session was to see Maxeen blossom in front of my lens. She sparkled in every way possible. The next day she phoned me to share how her day turned out after she left my Perth studio. Her husband is in a care facility and so she went to visit him. He did not recognise her at first and when he realised it was her he could not take his eyes off her. He calls her his model now! She said she caught him every couple of minutes just staring at her. All he wanted to do was take her out for dinner and show her off to the world! This made me tear up … and this is exactly why I have this passion to show every woman over 45 that she is deserving, she is beautiful and she has a light within that shines like a bright star. It’s just that sometimes we, as the over 45 group of women, forget about ourselves and then our light becomes dimmer and dimmer because we are so focused on everyone’s happiness around us.

No words can really describe Maxine’s beauty, so I’ll let the images do the talking.

Thank you Maxeen for allowing me to photograph you in your beautiful silver years. You truly are a remarkable woman and I’m pretty sure your family is so in love with you and so proud of you.

Love,

Natasha xoxo
