Karina’s Beautiful You Session

Today I’m sharing another gorgeous #over50andfabulous photo session on my blog. Meet Karina, a mother of 3 adult children who has a love for life, her family & friends.  A soft kind hearted fabulous lady who goes out of her way and takes the extra step for her loved ones. I asked Karina to be one of my models and I remember her words “I’m not feeling good about myself at this stage” so clearly.  And these words again just summarise what most 45+ ladies feel like.  Yes we are happy and yes we have so much to be thankful for, but we are definitely ignored and forgotten by the fashion world.  Anyway, a couple of weeks ago Karina had no choice but to play #modelforaday for my #over50isbeautiful campaign.  And how absolutely gorgeous does she look in these images.  What does these images say to me about her … fierce, kind, soft, happy, acknowledged, beautiful and definitely strong.

In Karina’s own words, she describes her experience:  “It was such a privilege to be asked by Natasha to be part of her vision of making woman (especially the over 45’s)  feel special again. I pursued this new venture with a nervousness and uncertainty burt was put at ease from the startup of the photoshoot thanks to her professionalism and warm personality. As the saying goes “The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others” reminds me of you Natasha!!  You made me feel completely comfortable and beautiful. Rana was amazing with my hair and make-up. Seeing myself in the mirror I felt like a blank canvas changing into a beautiful painting. Thank you Natasha & Rana for making me feel beautiful!”

So to my fellow over 45+ ladies;  you need to come and experience this for yourselves!  You need to capture beautiful portraiture of yourself for your family.  These images will be worth so much to your family!

Enjoy this gorgeous lady’s images.

Love, Natasha

Anke’s Beautiful You Session

“I believe inner beauty is beauty in it’s truest form. When we nurture ourselves, it brings an inevitable, positive transformation.” – Paula Abdul

Meet Anke, a beautiful friend with a passion for art.

If you’ve read my previous entry, you will know that I’m on a mission to change the view of how the fashion and marketing and we, the over 45 ladies, see ourselves.  We need a voice and people who represents us in fashion. We need to start by first treating ourselves the right way and a great way to do that is to treat yourself with a #over50andfabulous #modelforaday photo session. Anke who is also a friend was my 1st model. I asked Anke to share her experience in a few words.

Anke says: “When Natasha asked me for the photo shoot I was chuffed because she is such an amazing photographer, but in my heart I was hesitant as well because I’m not comfortable in front of a camera.  I would lie if I say I was not nervous the day of the shoot. But it was such a treat to arrive at Natasha’s studio, having my make-up and hair done by the fabulous Rana from Pink Makeup Artistry.  What I liked about Rana is she was sharing her makeup tricks and suggesting different products and options.  The shoot was fun! Especially our friends shoot with Karina, Natasha and myself.  Lots of laughs and giggles.  Thank you Tash for a lovely experience.  The photos tell the story.  I felt beautiful.”

Thank you Anke, you looked amazing!

XOXO

Over 50 and Fabulous Photo Session

WE MATTER …

Yes, I’m talking to you, my fellow 50+ girls.

Although I love my age and have no problem growing older, I feel done in … I feel unrepresented and ignored by the fashion & beauty world.  Walking around shopping malls will show you exactly what I mean.  Hardly ever, or actually never do I see any 50+ model on billboards apart from the one or maybe 2 shops who do focus on older lady’s but even they use models in their 30’s!  We are being brain washed by the marketing media and fashion houses … we are unrepresented and therefore lead to believe that we are too old to even matter.  Actually, we are told NOTHING.  I sometimes wonder if companies like Zara, HM, Forever-New, Dotti, Valleygirl, Temt and Sheike to name but a few, think once you reach 50, life stops and so does your interest in fashion!  We still like to dress trendy with fashionable pieces relatable to our age and style.  We do love make-up, but would love to see it on a face representing us!

Unfortunately I find that a lot of 50+ ladies loose their fashion identity.  There is nothing out there that represents them.  No billboards to say: “We do cater for you”; no marketing material inviting her into the shop.  Nothing to say you do matter.  Don’t get me wrong, looks aren’t the beginning and end of everything, but it sure does feel good to look good.  There is a positivity that shines through once you feel good … once you are reminded that you too are valuable and can look beautiful.  You feel appreciated and important.  You feel noticed by the world.  You feel special and it gives you a boost of confidence.

Speaking to lots of women over 50 throughout the last couple of months made me realise that we need to take a stand.  We can change our own outlook and maybe the outlook of the fashion world.  So we first need to take care of us.  We need to say to ourselves that we are important and show the world the value of us as the #50plusandfabulous customer.

So, since I’m in my 50’s I want and need to do something for my age group to say #over50counts #over50areworthy #over50isbeautiful  You are gorgeous, you are worthy and YES, you are allowed to have beautiful portraiture of yourselves, wrinkles and all.

I want to add value to your life and give you a beautiful experience where you are treated and photographed like the #silvermodel you are. I’ve teamed up with Rana from @pinkmakeupartistry and we are focusing on the #over50 lady.  We want to pamper you with stunning make-up and hair.  Style you for the session and treat you with snacks and drinks.  Once you leave my studio, you will feel like the best and most beautiful version of yourself. I want to show you YOU through my eyes.

  This is such a great investment in your life and your family will treasure them for years to come.

I had to experience this first hand, and so a couple of weekends ago, we used our newly renovated studio for my session.  My experience was beyond my own expectations.  I am camera shy, but have gotten better since I’ve been “modelling” for my fashion Instagram blog where I share ideas on fashion for the over 50 ladies.  The hair & make-up was superbly done.  I felt like a true model.  I had an inner strength and proudness about my age.  I felt beautiful and worthy and I had loads of confidence throughout the session.  I felt SPECIAL, truly special.   For the first time in a very long time I loved being photographed.  I felt proud of myself.  Going through my images I loved what was staring back at me.  I uploaded one of these as my Facebook profile photo and when my hubby (my photographer) asked me what I liked about this one, I said I saw a lot of softness in the photo.  I saw someone with a soft & kind heart; I see strength shining from within and I see a powerful confident women.

I wish I could give this service for free to every single lady over 50!  You owe it to yourself to have beautiful portraiture!

Here is a couple images from my #rockingsilverage #beautifulsilveryears #modelforaday photo session.

Don’t delay, get in contact with me today to book your own session. You will not be disappointed.

Love, Natasha

Eleanor’s lifestyle Beach shoot

Sunsets are always the perfect time to be at the beach.  It’s definitely the perfect time for photography.  Especially when all the elements on the day work together!  Eleanor is a gorgeous girl with a huge passion for the ocean and so a photo shoot down at our local beach fitted her lifestyle and personality like a glove.  We had the best of time and even got a little wet.  The water was so nice and warm … not something I say easily 🙂

I love how the light changes within minutes and the yellows and oranges start to play with the light streaks on the horizon and then changes the sky into a beautiful painting.  It’s moments like these that I love to capture.  I call these paintings by God.

There is still a couple of months left before we are truly into winter, so contact me so that we can start planning your photo session on the beach.

Slobodan & Amanda’s Perth wedding

Sharing the wedding of Slobodan & Amanda who got married towards the end of last year.  We worked with our good friend Frans from Studio777 at this wedding.  Always so great to work with people you know well.

Slobodan & Amanda got married here in Perth in a beautiful park and hosted their reception at their house.  Such a lively bunch of people.  I loved hearing their story through all the speeches at the reception.  There is a lot of love for this couple, that’s for sure.

We wish you a very happy and blessed life together!
