Sunshine Coast boudoir photography – a birthday present for hubbie

This gorgeous lady is a reminder to all of us that life doesn’t end at 40.  Embrace your age and your beauty – boudoir shoots definitely aren’t just for 20 year olds!

On her shoot day she told her husband an elaborate lie of where she would be to cover her tracks, and she travelled from the Sunshine Coast to my studio for her boudoir photography shoot.  All so that she could surprise him with a birthday present he would never expect, but would definitely love!

Here is her album, filled with beautiful boudoir images.

Recent Photo Shoots – Boudoir Photography Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Townsville

Over the last few weeks I have had many clients travel from both the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast to shoot in my Brisbane studio.  I love living in Brissie and having two wonderful places so close by.  And I’m appreciative of my clients taking the time to travel to me.

I am flying to Townsville tomorrow for a busy weekend of shooting.  If you have missed out on a spot, I will be back in Townsville photographing on 22 and 23 July, so get in touch if you would like to reserve a spot for my next trip.

April in my Brisbane studio is also a busy month, unless something suddenly becomes available, I am now booked out for shoots until May.

Here are a few photos from some recent photo shoots.  I loved photographing these three women, all so beautiful and unique!

3 inexpensive outfit choices for your Brisbane boudoir shoot – why you don’t have to spend a fortune

It is very exciting to book a Brisbane boudoir shoot and now be able to go shopping for outfits!  However if you are limited by budget, you don’t have to spend a fortune on new outfits.

My clients can bring 4 outfit choices to their boudoir photoshoot.  Here are 3 outfit choices I suggest you bring.  In fact, even if you are not on a budget, still consider these 3 outfits as they will add variety to your shoot.  Many clients make the mistake of bringing all suspenders and stockings to their shoot. I love stockings and suspenders as much as the next person, but it is best to limit them to one outfit per shoot.  Sometimes a more natural look can be even sexier.

 Boudoir Shoot outfit choice 1 – White Sheets

I am a sucker for white sheets.  Wrap yourself in some white sheets and look effortlessly gorgeous, while hiding any bits you aren’t 100% happy with.

No need to bring any sheets with you, I have that sorted. Talk about an inexpensive outfit choice 🙂

Boudoir Shoot outfit choice 2: Implied topless

Feeling daring? Go implied topless for one of your outfit choices.  This means that your hands/arms will be covering, so there is no nudity to make this x-rated.  Just bring some undies.

Also consider wearing stay-up stockings, boots or long socks – they go great with this look.

Boudoir Shoot outfit choice 3: Shirt and undies

I already spoke in my last post about how much I adore shirts and undies for your boudoir shoot.

If you missed my previous blog post with shirt ideas, you can read it here.  It also gives examples of different styles of shirts that work well for a boudoir shoot.

So there you go – 3 outfit choices that you don’t need to spend any money on and will look great!

Why you should bring a shirt to your Brisbane boudoir photo shoot

I suggest to all my clients to bring a shirt to their boudoir photo shoot, to wear with undies.  Here are some reasons why ….

Shirts say ‘effortlessly sexy’.

Shirts say ‘girl-next-door’ and ‘relaxed and natural’.

When they are teamed with undies they also say ‘I’m half undressed’ … and let’s face it, what guy doesn’t like that?

Who would have thought shirts could say all of that? But they do! And that is why I love them for boudoir shoots 🙂

BTW the photos in this blog post above are all white shirts, but that is merely coincidence so don’t let that limit you.  Any colour shirt works great, as you will see from other examples below.

Here are some styles of shirts that work great for your boudoir shoot:

  • white singlets
  • oversized singlets
  • shirts with cute sayings
  • low cut tops
  • crop tops
  • sheer shirts
  • long white shirt
  • jackets or shirts that can be left open (eg has zippers or buttons)
  • jumpers or large shirts that fall off your shoulder

And here are some photo examples to help you visualise:

I hope this helped convince you that a shirt, matched with some cute undies, is a great outfit to bring as one of your 4 selections.

Tips on choosing your boudoir photographer

You are looking for a boudoir photographer and there are so many to choose from – how to choose? Here are some tips to help you.

Look for a specialist

Go to a photographer’s website and you will often be amazed by all the different styles of photography they can do – not only do they shoot weddings, families and newborns but they also do boudoir photos.  Good on them – but perhaps they aren’t the right choice for your boudoir photo shoot.   A boudoir specialist does this style of photography day in and day out.  They will know how to guide you in choosing the correct outfits and be able to confidently direct you throughout the shoot.  They know the most flattering camera angles and poses to ensure you look your best.  Ideally choose a photographer who specialises in boudoir photography.  

Look for a consistent style

I can’t stress the importance of choosing a photographer with a consistent style.  There should be a recognisable style running through the photographer’s work that you choose.  You should be able to see their work anywhere on the internet and be able to tell it is their work without even seeing their name on the copyright.  Some photographers’ work looks so completely different to their other photos, it looks like it could be taken by a different photographer.  This means that you have no guarantee what your images will look like.  By choosing a photographer with a consistent style you can expect that you will receive images of a similar quality to those you have seen online.

 Retouching

The shoot is only one half of the photographer’s job, the second half is the retouching – so ensure you are happy with the photographer’s retouching style.  I have seen some amazing work by photographers, but their retouching skills let them down.  Some photographers offer too little retouching – and personally I believe cellulite, stretch marks, goosebumps etc do not belong in your boudoir photos.  Other photographers offer too much, and their photos look like you are a Barbie who has no resemblance to reality.  Ideally you will find someone who strikes a balance between the two.  You want to look natural, but also look your best.

 Check on their availability and turn-around times, and make sure they can meet your deadlines

Some photographers book shoots far in advance, and some photographers have very long turn-around times on providing your images.  I once had my family photos taken and didn’t see the gallery of proofs until 4 weeks after the shoot and it took another 4 weeks to receive my retouched images.  So make sure to find out these details, especially if you are doing the shoot for a special occasion (such as birthday, wedding etc) or if you need the photos urgently for work purposes.  It is really important that your photographer can cater for you and book your shoot in and provide your products within the time required.Boudoir Photographer

I hope these tips helped you in your search to choose your boudoir photographer.

Bridal boudoir photography Townsville – Shooting in April 2017

Wow, how fast did last year go? Not to mention the Christmas holidays! Well I feel wonderfully refreshed and ready to greet the year with open arms.

I have one new years resolution this year and that is to to focus more on Bridal Boudoir Photography.  Creating stunning images for brides to share with their partners on their wedding day is definitely a passion of mine.  So if you are a Brisbane, Gold Coast or Townsville bride look no further 🙂

For Townsville bride-to-bes, or any Townsville ladies looking for a boudoir photo shoot, I will be photographing at a modern hotel room on Saturday 1 April and Sunday 2 April.  Get in touch for more information and times.

This gorgeous lady recently had a bridal boudoir shoot done.  I am sure you will agree, she will make such a stunning bride! Her hair and makeup was done by the wonderful Erin White.  Erin has since relocated from Townsville to Melbourne if anyone is looking for an amazing hair and makeup artist –  I will definitely miss working with her!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

As it is the end of the year tomorrow, it is time for me to reflect on what I am grateful for this year.

Firstly I want to thank all my clients of 2016 – I am grateful to every one of you. When you choose me to be my photographer I don’t take that lightly, I know it comes with a lot of trust in me and my work.

Secondly, I am so grateful for finally having my own studio space, which is a beautiful space that has evolved this year.  It has really helped me to develop my own style and create beautiful consistent work for my clients.

I believe in the law of attraction and vision boards, and this is from my vision board many years ago.  An overseas photographer had shared this photo of their photography studio space online and I fell in love with it and put it on my vision board.  I had wanted a beautiful natural-light home studio for over 5 years before it happened.  It didn’t come quickly, but wow am I thankful it finally happened.  To those of you who have a dream, please do not ever give up that it will come.

Here is to a fantastic 2017! See you next year 🙂

Anonymous boudoir photography

Due to the style of photography I offer, many of my clients choose to keep their images private. However, kindly they often allow me to use their anonymous photos for my promotional use.

So that is the reason that I am going to be showing some anonymous photos, that is mainly butt shots, in this post!
