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.

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!
