Luxe USB of images from your boudoir shoot

So I admit it – I’ve been living in the last century.  I was still providing CDs of my digital images until this past month.  Even though yes I know most laptops don’t even come with a CD slot these days!  So I knew it was time to upgrade to USB, but being someone who struggles with decisions I kept putting it off, until I came across this gorgeous gold key USB.  As soon as I saw it I knew it was the perfect fit for my boudoir clients.

These luxe USBs have been such a hit with my clients that I know I made the right decision. I love their reaction when they first see it, they ooh and aah … they want to pick it up, and they literally can’t stop staring at it.

I’m sure any partner would love to receive this gold key to unlock sexy photos of their loved one 🙂  Don’t you agree?

Albums by Gold Coast boudoir photographer

I am fortunate that many of my clients are from the Gold Coast.  This lovely lady was doing her boudoir shoot as a first year wedding anniversary present for her husband.  The 1st year anniversary present is ‘paper’ which makes an album full of prints the perfect gift idea.  If, for whatever reason, you weren’t able to do your shoot as a wedding present, this is another fantastic time to have your boudoir shoot.

Albums really do look amazing and they always come with a CD of the high resolution digital images.  Here are some pages from my client’s album.

Celebrating her body before a fitness competition – Brisbane boudoir photographer

This gorgeous lady had her shoot close to her fitness competition, as a celebration of her hard work and to capture her body at this moment in time.  Instead of fitness photos, she was really wanting beautiful boudoir photos.  She travelled from the Gold Coast to my Brisbane boudoir photographer studio for her shoot.

She has such an amazing physique so I captured some implied topless photos to show it off further.  Hair and makeup by Mequa of Mequa’s Artistry.  Her lovely makeup really accentuated the client’s beautiful eyes and striking purple hair.

I hope you enjoy her beautiful images.

Why everyone should purchase a boudoir photo album

I currently offer both digital image only packages and album packages, however I strongly believe every boudoir client should leave my studio with an album. So I have come up with 6 important reasons why you should purchase an album with prints, rather than solely purchasing the digital images.

1.  You have gone to all this effort – often purchased new lingerie, had a spray tan, and paid for your hair and makeup to be professionally done. Not to mention, you mustered the courage to do your boudoir shoot!  This is a once in a lifetime experience.  Which is why it is important to have a momento to look back on and treasure.

2. It saves you the hassle of doing it yourself. You may intend to print your images, but life just gets in the way.  We all have busy lives and it can be placed on the end of a long to do list.

3. For the best quality prints, with natural skin tone and correct exposure, you should always have your images printed through your photographer and their professional lab.  Please know that not all labs are equal!  Your local Kmart, Big W etc are vastly different in quality to a professional lab.

The importance of printing through a professional lab further hit home to me recently when I was given some prints from a family member’s wedding. Although the bride and groom had dark skin, their images were so blown out that they both looked as white as ghosts. Later they showed me their wedding album containing perfect prints. I couldn’t believe the difference in quality, so I questioned them – they confirmed that the album prints were printed by their photographer, and the prints I had been given were printed off their CD at their local lab.

4. Having your photos sent to a professional lab for printing also ensures the privacy of your images.  Boudoir images are very personal, therefore privacy is usually at the top of mind for my clients.  A professional lab deals with this style of images everyday and understand the need to respect the security and privacy of your boudoir images.

5. Technology is both our friend and foe. Technology changes so quickly. CDs and USBs won’t be around forever. Does anyone else remember floppy discs? It would be extremely difficult to access files on one of those now. Many new laptops no longer even include CD drives. Think of all the types of technology we currently use – how many will still be around in 50 years? Whereas your prints will be.  Not to mention, saved digital files can become corrupt over time and hard drives can crash.

6. An album is a fantastic way to display your photos while keeping your prints protected. You may choose to keep your album in a private spot, or alternatively you might choose to display them on a stand in a bedroom. I always include the high resolution digital images with my album packages too, so it really is the best option!

I hope this has helped you have some appreciation for the importance of purchasing an album of your boudoir shoot.

Brisbane boudoir studio – recent anonymous photos

Part and parcel with being a Brisbane boudoir studio is that many clients are shy about sharing their photos with the world, which is totally understandable!

I will always respect your right to choose whether I can share any of your photos, or only those that maintain your anonymity, or you may choose to keep all your images for your private use only.

Here are some of my recent photos, that my clients have kindly allowed me to share while maintaining their anonymity.

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!

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’.

Brisbane boudoir photo shoot

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

Brisbane boudoir photo shoot

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

Brisbane boudoir photo shoot

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.

September studio shoot – Boudoir Photographer Brisbane

This gorgeous lady came into my studio in September for her boudoir shoot.  She was referred to my studio from a previous client, which I love! Most of my clients are referrals, or previous clients doing another shoot, and I am always so grateful that they choose to do their photo shoot with me.

Hair and makeup was done by Helena of Elegant Creations Hair and Makeup Artistry. Her red hair looks so striking in the photos and I love the pink and purple colours mixed in.

She had put a lot of thought into her outfit choices and each of them really suited her personality and body.  The white dressing gown/robe was my absolute favourite.  The lace was just so pretty that I think I now have a robe obsession.

I am also impressed that she brought her silver glittery heels to go with her robe.  Often clients just bring a pair of black heels, but it is really important when bringing a white outfit to remember to also bring your white/nude/silver heels to go with it.

My client was such a delight to shoot and she was always happy and laughing!Here are some photos from her photo shoot.
