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.

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’.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Boudoir Photography Brisbane – Studio shoot

Following on from my last blog post, here are some more images from my last Brisbane studio shoot. This gorgeous girl really should be a model as she is such a natural in front of the camera.

What to Wear – Boudoir photo shoot Brisbane

Here are some more ideas on outfits to bring to your boudoir photo shoot Brisbane.

boudoir photo shoot Brisbane

Bodysuit

This is such a simple outfit that ladies may not even think of when planning their boudoir outfits, but it is a great choice and has an ‘effortlessly sexy’ look about it.

boudoir photo shoot Brisbane

Mismatch bras and undies

Again, another thing that ladies may not have considered themselves, but if you like to mix things up and be a bit different then this is a great way to be sexy and unique at the same time.

Net bodystocking

This outfit is not for the faint at heart. You have to be quite daring to go for an outfit like this, but if your aim is to be provocative then this is a great outfit choice. It is also a good choice if you are using your photos for promotional purposes and want to wear something different, as there are many styles available – net dresses, bodysuits or bodystockings. These aren’t usually found at your shopping centre lingerie stores. Instead you will want to search online sites such as www.yandy.com, www.fantasylingerie.com.au or visit your local sex shop.

Dress up outfits

Another great idea if you are wanting a unique outfit for your shoot. There are so many styles to choose from. You will find dress up outfits at lingerie stores like Bras n things, online lingerie shops and sex shops.
