The thing I love most about photography is my clients, and this extends from both the wedding photography to the boudoir photography. Sometimes people think it is strange that we specialise in a specific area, but it takes a lot of time and patience to develop the skills to do the photography.
I am specialising in two area's that are very close to my heart .... Wedding photography, as I just love the romance and detail of a wedding day. It is one of the most challenging forms of photography as we need to deal with what you have on the day. This could be bad weather to changing light conditions or even strange events happening during the day. Boudoir photography is my other love, as I believe all women are beautiful and can boost their self image but seeing themselves looking sensual, glamourous and beautiful.
The reason I am mentioning this in this post, is, when Robyn came to our boudoir marathon, I immediately thought that this is a different and exciting lady to work with. Not many people are comfortable to sit in their lingerie outside, but Robyn was! There was an awesome hole in the wall outside which I was dying to photograph, with lots of help from our MUA Shandre (who held the reflector) and Shelley (who was shooting with me) we got amazing photographs. The way we had to photograph this was definitely not traditional boudoir, and it was dealing with the same conditions for a wedding. Great thinking out of the box ladies, and dealing with the different situation!
Not satisfied there, Robyn was ready to give us sultry attitude and even was prepared to do implied nude photography. What a stunning lady to work with, I hope to work with you again!
I met Portia at the boudoir party with Shelley Burt and Shandre Araujo, and I have to say she is such a lovely lady! Not only is she stunning with a beautiful body and sultry eyes, but such a lady as well.
Even if you are shy and scared to dress in lingerie, the boudoir shoot is rather liberating. As a photographer, it really makes it worth my while when a lady can tell me that this shoot has boosted her self image and confidence! If this is to spice up your relationship or just as a fun thing to do for yourself, it is something I would highly recommend!
Due to our success and popular demand we are definitely going to do another boudoir party soon!
A few more images from our boudoir shoot on Saturday. Should anyone want details of Shandre, our make-up artist please let me know. The work she did with Sam is breath-taking!
Sam walked into our shoot, the most relaxed I have ever seen some one before a shoot where you "get your kit off". Her relaxed but sultry attitude and wonderful fun personality made photographing her an absolute pleasure. Have a look at some of her photos!
Last Saturday, I had the most amazing day with a very talented boudoir photographer, my friend Shelley Burt - Pretty Boudoir, and the best make-up artist I have worked with, Shandre - Make-up by Shandre. We embarked on a Boudoir marathon which meant we had 6 models to photograph in 6 hours.
We chose a stunning location, The Wesley in Bryanston as it is both beautiful and romantic - perfect for boudoir! It was a challenging but fun day, and I got to meet so many beautiful young ladies. Here is a sneak peak of the first model we worked with on the day .... The lovely Erica.
Thank you all for making this a very special event!
Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
