A New Start

Inspiration

Hello Beautiful Ones,

I haven’t posted here in a while. That’s because my imagery has a new home at Kokoro Imagery where I guide women to bring Personal, Emotional and Spiritual Freedom into their lives with positive transformation through Personal Coaching, Sharing Knowledge and Personal Insights and Creative Expression through the medium of art, to create Photographic Portraiture of the Heart, Mind, Spirit, Emotions and Feelings which, put together, create the beautiful goddess that you are.

I would love for you all to come join me at my new website and keep up to date with new insights, articles and upcoming online courses! Click the link and be sure to follow the blog or sign up to my mailing list to ensure you don’t miss anything: http://www.coletteduggan.com

There are some very exciting things coming soon, I can’t wait to see you there!

Stay Beautiful,

Colette Duggan.

Hello Beautiful Ones,
It’s been a warm couple of days here in Adelaide! So for those of you who haven’t had a chance to pick up a copy of the Winter Edition of Like a Lion Magazine, here is an image from our Ice Princess Fashion/Portrait Shoot to help cool you down, whether the weather is cooling down where you are or whether you still have the aircon on!

Although this was a fashion shoot, I also love to incorporate fun themes and Hair and Makeup into Beauty Portrait and Boudoir Sessions when they are requested. Whether that be working with bright colours, working with a particular time period or culture (such as Annie’s Victorian Boudoir Session) or with your favourite fandoms from the book, tv or film world, I am always happy to help you plan your alternative Beauty Portrait or Boudoir Session!

Redefining Beauty – One Woman at a Time!

Inspiration

Hello Beautiful Ones,

I posted this in a private group on facebook about what I want to create in the world and I want to share it with you all.

This is why I do what I do. It’s not just to have a career doing something I love (although that’s definitely a reason), but I want to do something that will reveal the beauty and light in the lives of others:

“I want to help show women that they are beautiful no matter what they look like, whether they match the image of ‘ideal beauty’ or not (because let’s not forget that some women do match or almost match that ideal and they are beautiful too), whether they wear makeup or not.

I’m not against self-improvement or the use of cosmetics for fun or to express yourself (or on stage under stage lights since it helps the audience see more than a featureless blob). However, it upsets me that women (in fact, people in general) feel that they have to do certain things, apply certain things, wear certain things in order to feel beautiful, to think that they are good enough, because they don’t automatically match that ‘ideal’.

I want to help people to see that they are beautiful, that they are good enough and give them a lasting memory of that for them to look at both on good days when they are at the top of their game and on the days where they think they look like a cat dragged through a bush backwards (I credit my mother for that saying) and feel that they aren’t good enough and shouldn’t even try, to give them a pick-me-up to remind them that none of that is true.

I want women to walk into their bathrooms (or whatever room they frequent most in the morning) in the morning and see a stunning piece of wall art hanging above their mirror (or other often viewed spot) and say “wow, I am freaking beautiful”. I want them to see their beauty every time the press a button on their phone to unlock it, as their background image on their phone or computer, on their social media accounts and feel like doing a happy dance. I want them to walk into their bedroom at night and see more examples of their beauty, whether hanging above their bed, framed on their chest of drawers or bedside table or by looking through an album, that will cause them to fall asleep smiling and happy.

I don’t want to fill the world with beauty, it’s already full of beauty. I want to fill the world with people who are aware that they are beautiful and are able to see the beauty in themselves, others and the world around them. I want people to stop comparing themselves to others and nitpicking other women’s appearances and clothing choices and begin complimenting and supporting them instead.

Just writing that has me excited by the possibilities. I think this might be my longest post yet #sorrynotsorry #adelaide #beautiful”

Stay Beautiful,

Colette Duggan.

P.S.  I’ll have a gallery of my work up here very soon, but until then, jump onto facebook and check out what I do there. Also keep an eye out for my Christmas Special for some big holiday savings on session packages! It’s the perfect gift for yourself or for your friends and family! But once I release them, you’ll have to be quick: there will only be a limited amount available!

Tea and Gymnastics: Beauty Portraits

Inspiration

Hello Beautiful Ones,

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I did a Beauty Portrait session last week at my studio space at the Adelaide Fashion Revolution Studio with a gorgeous client, who has recently taken up gymnastics and is also a gymnastics coach. She booked a gymnastics themed session, complete with sparkly purple leotard to celebrate reaching her goal weight! She also enjoys a good cup of Japanese Cherry Loose Leaf Tea from the T-Bar and the colour purple (oh, by the way, did I mention that she loves purple?), so we incorporated that into the session as well 🙂

Today I am excited to say that I can now share a sneak peak from her session with you all 🙂 These are a couple of her favourite images, among the many that she chose at her in-person image viewing session!

Stay Beautiful!

Colette Duggan.

Update

Inspiration

Hello Beautiful Ones,

I did a Beauty Portrait session last week at my studio space at the Adelaide Fashion Revolution Studio with a gorgeous client, who requested a session very different from what I usually do. She has recently taken up gymnastics and won a few prizes at her first competition a few weeks ago. She is also a gymnastics coach. So naturally, she told me that once she had reached her goal weight, she wanted to book a gymnastics themed session, complete with sparkly purple leotard! 🙂 She also enjoys a good cup of Japanese Cherry Loose Leaf Tea from the T-Bar and the colour purple (oh, by the way, did I mention that she loves purple?), so we also decided to incorporate that into the session as well 🙂

She has been kind enough to allow me to share some of her images, so I will share some of those very soon.

Until then, Stay Beautiful,

Colette Duggan.
