Jacqui lost a massive 100kg

Jacqui is the first amazing woman in our Inspiration series for 2018. Each month we are selecting and photographing one person at no charge, who has faced and conquered a battle, and who we believe would be an inspiration to others who are setting out on the same journey.

Jacqui has battled with her weight for most of her life and after suffering a back injury, was told by her doctor that she needs to either lose weight or purchase a wheel chair. This was a massive wake up call to Jacqui who weighed 150 kg and had 2 beautiful young girls to think about, so, she embarked upon a massive journey to shed as much as possible. Unfortunately her journey was especially difficult as she suffered a massive B12 loss which went undiagnosed and lost most of her vision and the ability to walk, but she fought and fought through and today she walks and her vision has returned. She has lost 100kg and she looks amazing.

This glamour photography session was a celebration of that achievement. Jacqui loves to sing and play guitar so we had to add some guitar images to her session. We also added some boudoir and nude. Jacqui was a total inspiration and a testament to what can be achieved when a person wants something badly enough. We felt very honoured to have been selected as her photographer.

Tanya says “F**CK YOU” to Breast Cancer!

Tanya is the second amazing person in our 2018 ‘Inspiration’ series of photographs and she wants to say a big “F**K YOU” to Breast Cancer. We chose Tanya for one of our free sessions to tell her story, which we believed would inspire and give hope to other women going through treatment, so we gifted Tanya a glamour, boudoir and portrait photography session.

Tanya’s story is very similar to Karen’s story in regards to her fight with Breast Cancer and it pulled a few emotional chords with the both of us.

Tanya was diagnosed with cancer of the left breast on July 5th last year, finding also that it had spread to her lymph nodes. She had lumpectomy with axillary lymph node clearance surgery, followed by 4 out of 6 very harsh chemotherapy (CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE + DOCETAXOL) treatments which were cut short due to severe reactions which almost killed her.

Tanya then had 30 sessions of radiation to her left breast which finished 16th February this year. She lost all of her hair, lashes and eyebrows (photo below during treatment) which are starting to grow back now and she has just started her 10 years of hormone therapy (Tamoxifen) and will continue to have follow up bone, organ and breast scans to check for metastasis.

Tanya wanted to have a session with us so that she could feel beautiful again and push away the stigma of “that lady with cancer” that everyone stares at. She wanted a strong photo shoot to say a big ‘F*** YOU!’ to cancer, and reclaim her life back. We had a wonderful session with Tanya today and we enjoyed chatting to her about her experience and life in general. We feel that we have helped her to see what a beautiful woman she is and we also got some sexy images that we know her husband will love.

12 awesome boudoir ideas to hide a “mummy tummy” for hot results!

Here are 12 awesome boudoir ideas to hide a “mummy tummy” and give you photos that are hot, hot, hot. Most of us mums have been there. After having a few children we have been left with a tummy that is not exactly the way it was “back in the day” so to speak. We end up carrying the wear and tear that motherhood brings and really – who want’s to even think about surgery to fix that problem? There are far more important things to worry about and find money for in life. But never fear, we can still give you awesome photographs that will make you forget what time and children have done to you, and, we can help you get that long forgotten confidence back. But, most importantly, we can make you smile and love yourself again.

Clearly, wearing a baby doll or corset would solve the problem but some women would like to try some nude or implied nude in their session and would also like to use a nice two piece lingerie set, so we have developed some great poses to suit. We can remove some damage in post production but most of it we will pose and light for the best results.

Our missing in life is to make as many women smile when they see their photographs as we possibly can and we hope that we can do that for you too. Below we have put together a list of boudoir and nudoir poses and outfits that are sexy but still elegant and will hide that ‘mummy tummy’, giving you photographs that you will absolutely love and, so will your husband/partner.

 

  1. The white sheet is fantastic for hiding problem areas whilst still looking sultry and alluring. We can cover as little or as much as we need and use light to blow out other detail if we choose to. If there are a few stray stretch marks still showing they can be removed in photoshop.

2. Using the men’s white business shirt which can be opened or closed as much as is needed to hide marks if wanted. It is always a sexy option.

Glamour & boudoir photography session for Noela

Noela came to us this week for a mixed glamour and boudoir photography session. In fact she has come to us twice in the past month. The first session was for a family session with her children and grandchildren to celebrate her 60th birthday. Yes, 60th birthday. She loved the results so much that she decided to return to us for a boudoir session. I think these images prove that boudoir is no only for the young, it is for the young at heart. Noela looks amazing and we thank her very much for giving us permission to use her images.

Portrait session with our make up artist, Monique

This week we photographed one of our wonderful makeup artists, Monique Torres from Zalique Makeup. We had been wanting to get Monique in front of the camera for the past 18 months but she was a bit too nervous. We managed to convince her to come in for a few portraits and we had an amazing session with her. Even though she actively avoided being on the other side of the camera, she was a natural. She has a grace and poise which made our job so easy and the results, amazing.

Now Monique knows first hand what a session is like as she is often asked by our clients. She had such a great time that she is planning a trip back with her husband for a romantic couples session.

If you are searching for the right Brisbane photographer to capture your personality and spirit then please get in touch. We would love to have the opportunity to give you amazing photographs that you never thought were possible. Monique may even end up being your makeup artist for your session.

Please call Karen on 0402 230 669 if you would like to discuss your own personally designed photography session.

Glamour, boudoir photography session for Julie-Anne

boudoir photography

Julie-Anne’s husband purchased her a gift voucher for Christmas for a glamour, boudoir photography session with us. He wanted her to see how beautiful she was and to gain a little more confidence with herself and her body and he achieved that mission. Julie-Anne came to us saying that she had no confidence at all in her body but after seeing the photos she felt so good and excited about the photographs that she gave us permission to use the images on our site.

It is so special for Dean and I when this transformation takes place and we can show a woman just how beautiful she really is. So many women have children and then completely lose themselves in their busy family life. We can help to show them that they are still sexy, beautiful women and they don’t always have to be “mum”. Husbands and partners love to see this transformation also.

You can find more information on a women’s session with us on this link or you are welcome to call me on 0402 230 669 and I can email pricing details for your own personal session with us.

We are also now offering private sessions in your home. If you have a lovely home with plenty of great natural light we can come to you for a private boudoir photography session. Simply call me for a chat on 0402 230 669.

Nude photography session for Allisha

Allisha’s partner purchased her a gift voucher for her last birthday and it was up to her to choose the style of images when wanted. She decided upon a nude photography session with a mix of light and dark style images. Our natural light studio has the most beautiful soft light during the day and it is perfect for that soft romantic look that women love.

This is what Allisha had to say about her session with us.

“Hi Karen,

Both Tom & I are very happy with the final pictures and I was very happy with the whole experience from start to finish. I am surprised with how many people I have shown them to, a few ladies at work, my family & friends. I even showed my Mum who was chuffed with them.

Of course I have been highly recommending you and have already given away the business cards I left with. 

 I felt quite comfortable doing the nude shoots and would happily do it again.  

Will definitely be using you guys again and I would hope that you could be there for significant moments later in life. “

Glamour, nude & boudoir photography session for Saow

The beautiful Saow has been wanting to have a glamour, nude and boudoir photography session for the past few years and since she discovered our site earlier this year, she decided to take a breath and book. We photograph many styles of photography in both flash and natural light so it was very easy for Saow to have exactly the images she had been wanting. She chose a mix of light and dark images and a mix of glamour, boudoir and nude for a great folio of varied photographs.

We all had a lot of fun and really enjoyed chatting to Saow during our time together. We know that she will look back upon her images for a very long time and feel proud of what she achieved on the day with us.

Dean and I have a lot of experience photographing women of all ages, shapes and sizes. We know how to pose women to hide the parts they don’t like and to accentuate their assets. We will always aim for the very best results in camera with the right posing but we can also tweak an image when needed in photoshop. We can also fix skin imperfections and stretch marks in photoshop if needed. You will view your images right after your session so you do not have to make time from your busy schedule to return for a viewing.
