We’re back! With a promise that our Blog posts will be more regular!
We’ve had a wonderful year to date with so many beautiful ladies in the studio.

Some have been in more than once and one of them being one of the stunning ladies that we are featuring in today’s blog post.

Introducing the beautiful Miss Tasha from Curved Mania Inc! Located here in Christchurch, this inspirational solo Mum of 6 booked in several months back and hasn’t looked back! Miss Mania was crazy nervous but I took her under my wing and told her I was here for advice, encouragement and guidance. I was hers for the keeping. And I did just that, Two shoots down and two shoots in planning. She’s hooked to Time2Shine!

Miss Mania rocked up how I would in skate shoes and a hoodie! She looked fabulous with her gorgeous smile! Bonnie and I welcomed her in

with open arms! Straight to Hair and Make-up with Bonnie from Time2Shine Hair and Make-up. Tasha was set with a few too many laughs and girly chitchat! Our time together in the studio is always precious. I love it! Nothing is off topic 😉

We had the pleasure of two shoots already with Tasha. The first was a bit glam boudoir and the second was a bit alternative and a hole lota awesome! As I write all out our blog post I remember Miss Mania was the only lovely lady that filled out our recent survey.

Thanks hunnie pie! She scored herself a sweet complimentary A4 print just to say thank you!

    This post is really encouraging! She looks amazing and sounds like it was a great experience. Maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to try one with a photographer up here 🙂

    I’ve known Tash forever and I would never have expected to see her infront of the camera, ley alone in next to nothing wooohooo
    She talks after you guys like you were old mates so I can tell that she appreciates what you do at time2shine and how it is affecting her. I believe tash has a great future in plus size modelling and I can see a lot More collaborations between you and her. Well done ladies well.done

    I so want to book a boudoir shoot for the hubby. But I don’t have the courage she’s a brave women

    • Jamie Parr, You totally got this babe! I will give you my confidence and you will surprise yourself!
      Tash didn’t think she would be able to do this and she has, twice with me and plenty of other times with other photographers.

      Plus I have a free consult available so we can chat about your session, clothing, nerves and of course posing.

      It is my job to guide you and I will do just that from start to finish. All you have to do is trust me and book.

      You can do it! I said the same thing to Tash <3 And she did!
