A message from our clients
MEET THE TEAM
If you’re going to entrust us to guide you on your self love journey then I think it’s important you know a little about us first, don’t you?
I’m Carrie, one half of the Toto Caelo team. My upbringing was a wash of creativity, our mad-house buzzing with imagination and inspiration. It was here that my eye for beauty was established (and luckily later refined) I’ve come a long way since my ‘Beauty Salon’ in the garage at age five, when I thought that blue eye shadow was the be all and end all!
Luckily over the years I have expanded upon the hues of my eye shadow palette, painting the faces of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, Jodi Kidd and many more in practice for your leading role.
An artist by trade, dreamer by nature and a self love warrior I conceived Toto Caelo with a desire to create a little bit of heaven for all that I meet.
As a strong and independent thirty something female, I’m often asked ‘Why Makeover Photography?’ there is a popular misconception that makeover photography and Boudoir in particular is a form of female objectification. This most definitely is not the case, rather it is a celebration of oneself. My driving force is that self love is for everybody and every body.
So here I am baring all, to prove that I walk my talk!
And I’m Delphine, the other half of this double act. I’m the one who raised Carrie and her two siblings in a world of imagination, creativity and full of dreams. My motto in life is ‘If you can dream it, then it can be so.’
I’m the lady behind the sewing machine; I create the ever increasing wardrobe. My journey started nearly fifty years ago, when as a child, I would draw and create exquisite and majestic gowns. I totally embraced luxury and opulence in every creation. As my Mum would say, I wasn’t happy until I had adorned every garment with an extra bow!
I soon learnt in life that ‘Costume’ has the power to transport and transform the wearer. It is no coincidence that our ruffled Boudoir gown instantly evokes the ‘Hollywood Siren’ in all whom wear it. They instantly feel elegant, alluring and enchanting.
I’ve never been this old, I’ve never weighed this much (even when 42 weeks pregnant with a 9lb baby), I have grey hair, I have a spinal injury, I have a caesarian scar (thanks Carrie!), I have stretch marks galore, I have cellulite, a scar from shingles, bingo wings and other saggy bits but as we say, self love and self confidence is for everybody. So here I am, totally natural, no implants, no tummy tuck, no fillers and even no hair dye. 57 years young, celebrating the skin I’m in.
Together we have the privilege to guide the ladies who step through our doors on their body confidence journeys. To us there is nothing more rewarding than enabling our clients to embrace whatever their hearts desire, ensuring they feel as gorgeous as they really are.
