Gosh I love being a Brisbane boudoir photographer. Several months ago, Ally emailed me to say she was interested in getting some boudoir photography done to show off her tattoos. I shared with Ally that I had always wanted to do a bedroom shoot to submit to Inked Girls magazine, so she booked a hotel room in Brisbane CBD for a girls’ night out so that we could also use the room for the shoot.
It was obvious at the shoot that the photos were the perfect fit for Inked Girls magazine as Ally has a natural beauty that the magazine loves, great tattoos, and the hotel room was the perfect location. I had so much fun photographing her.
I can’t wait to see some of these images in print in Issue 10 of Inked Girls, coming out in the next month or so!

Pink Diamond Studios was a partnership between myself and my friend, Becky, who is a fabulous makeup artist. Becky has recently had a baby and is also about to move to the United States. I am sooo jealous as I have always wanted to live in America and hope to someday (or at the very least to holiday there every year)! If you are a previous client, or were a fan of Pink Diamond Studios, it has now merged into Nikki Brown Photography and you can now contact me at www.nikkibrown.com.au.
Becky and I had a blast working together and here are some favourite images that Becky and I created together. (The first photo is of the beautiful Becky herself!)
I love shooting inked girls! I recently photographed Jacqui, who is a part time model based on the Gold Coast. Her tattoos were such beautiful artwork. I envy tattoo artists for being able to create something that is appreciated every single day and carried around for all to see. It must be such a rewarding job.
For any photographers out there who need a gorgeous tattoo model, I really recommend you working with Jacqui. She has the longest legs I have ever seen, but even more importantly she really knows how to work it in front of the camera.
I’d love to photograph your tattoos for you! Some images of Jacqui are below. Visit my website www.nikkibrown.com.au to view more of my tattoo images.
As a Gold Coast glamour photographer, every few months I book out a hotel apartment for the weekend so that girls can have their glamour shoot in a nice hotel room for minimal cost. My last hotel shoot weekend was at the beginning of May and it was then that I photographed Clair.
Clair was lucky enough to secure an afternoon time slot which meant she got to do shots both in the hotel room as well as swimsuit shots on the beach. It can be hard to decide between lingerie or swimwear for your photo shoot, so to do both styles in the one shoot is such a bonus.
As you will see from the photos Clair is a beautiful girl, and she was also lots of fun to shoot with. The weather was perfect, we had clear blue skies and the afternoon light had such a magical quality.
Here are some of Clair’s gorgeous photos.

I have just had my first Gold Coast hotel shoot weekend, and it was amazing to hold glamour photography shoots there! The hotel room had the most spectacular views of the ocean, and as the hotel was right on the beachfront the lucky girls with an afternoon spot were able to do both boudoir photos in the hotel room and then some swimsuit photos on the beach.
I couldn’t believe my bad luck that I broke my toe right before the weekend and got told by the doctor that I had to stay off it for several days! I just made sure to put my feet up at every possible chance. I will definitely be doing many more hotel shoot weekends, so stay posted for final dates.
One of the girls I photographed during the hotel weekend sent me the most lovely email after she saw her images last night. She has said it is fine for me to share her email, and this is what she wrote:
‘It was such a pleasure to have met you! you are so nice and amazing to work with..never felt so relaxed with someone..and i have never felt so beautiful:-) the images were all so beautiful!! its so hard to choose from !!! aaaaaaaahhhhh! ;-P i will definitely recommend you to my friends..your work is absolutely stunning.. thank you so much Nikki.. it so nice to meet such a beautiful lady inside and out.. take care always.. and keep up the good work of making an everyday woman feel the most beautiful in the world.’
Wow! I sooo love my job, I get to meet such wonderful girls and have so much fun. Thanks Lorie for letting me share that – you are a gorgeous girl and such a pleasure to shoot with! Here is a photo from the shoot.

Here are some photos from a recent glamour shoot in Brisbane. To view more of my work visit www.nikkibrown.com.au.
I found this on the internet and just had to share it. Wow. Who would have thought that supermodels could look like normal girls without the hair, makeup and amazing photography. They are still beautiful – but no more so than many girls I see everyday and photograph. They don’t actually wake up looking like their magazine photos, so let’s all stop comparing ourselves to their ‘after’ photos! Have a glamour photo shoot done and you too can look like a model.
I have just had my Inked Girls Australia magazine scanned so I can show off some of the photos that I have had published. As I have mentioned before I am so in love with this magazine! The girls always look confident and gorgeous – and the photography is so natural and raw. I buy every single issue because I find it so inspirational.
Three of my clients have now been featured in Inked Girls and I have had 10 photographs published in the magazine.
If there are any tattooed girls out there I would love to do a photo shoot to capture your beautiful artwork. I can also submit photos from your shoot to Inked Girls magazine and other tattoo magazines for possible publication.
Here are some of the magazine tear sheets of model Sara who was so amazing to photograph. To see other published shoots visit the publications section of my website www.nikkibrown.com.au.
I often get asked if I do fitness photography and the answer is yes definitely! I really enjoy shooting in the gym and using the gym equipment in the shots.
I recently did a fitness photo shoot for Belinda, owner of Hot Fox Fitness. If you are currently looking for a Brisbane personal trainer, then get in touch with Belinda. She has such a lovely nature, which would be so beneficial in a training environment. She also has a motivational blog which has loads of fitness tips and inspiration. Check it out at www.hotfoxfitness.com.au.
Meet Lisa, she recently had a Brisbane swimsuit photography shoot. I know you are going to find it hard to believe, but she is 37 years old and has 3 kids. And she still looks like a supermodel! I was sure she must be a gym junkie but alas she just runs to stay fit.
Lisa’s swimsuit shoot was on a Friday, so we had the beach all to ourselves. For any girls out there that are a little shy I definitely recommend a weekday shoot to avoid the crowds. It was such a windy day, but it ended up being to our advantage as we got the lovely windswept look.
I get a lot of enquiries from mums who are interested in doing a glamour shoot and they are always concerned about their body not being the way it used to be. I understand your concerns. I know that not everyone is going to have a figure like Lisa, and that is okay. I will use the poses and camera angles that flatter you – that highlight what you and your partner do like about your body, and hides what you don’t. Photoshop is also amazing at any slight nips and tucks, although I’m a firm believer in only using it to enhance realistically.
Here are some photos from Lisa’s swimsuit shoot. She is such a beautiful person inside and out and I wanted to capture that. I have to confess that I also have a real love of sun flare shots, I find them so natural and beautiful!
