Couples boudoir session with Irma & Andrew

Irma and Andrew came to us to celebrate a year of being in love with a couples boudoir photography session. If there is one thing that we have learned by photographing hundreds of amazing couples it is this – there is no age limit to finding your soulmate. Irma (57) and Andrew (60) are both second time rounders and were clearly so very much in love and ‘in passion’. We had a wonderful time photographing them and giving them images that they will treasure for a very long time together.

Boudoir & nude photography for Natasha

Nude photography

Natasha asked us to push her out of her comfort zone today and include some beautiful nude photography images along with the boudoir and glamour that she originally came here for. She was so happy that she did them and loves the results. The images are a birthday present for her boyfriend and we are sure he will love them.

We have a lot of ladies come in to us for a glamour or boudoir session. While they are in the makeup chair they look at a large TV screen which scrolls a selection of our work. They will often see our beautiful and tasteful nude photography and express an interest in doing some of that themselves. They are usually quite scared but they will always decide that they have made the step to come along so they might as well take a deep breath and do the nude images. They never, ever regret that decision. Our nude photography is done in either our dark studio for the moody dark images, or our natural light studio for the brighter images such as you see above.

The big question which is asked when shooting nude photography is “can we fix stretch marks and do a little thinning where needed?” The answer is yes, so if you are coming in for a session with us and you think you might like to get brave enough to include some nude, don’t fret it, it’s easy really.

Here is a link to our artistic nude photography gallery.

Couples photography Brisbane

Couples photography Brisbane

Let’s talk about couples photography sessions. They are a very different dynamic to a normal glamour, portrait or boudoir session.

Usually with a couples photography session, there is a hand imprint in the back of one of the couple. Sometimes they will be here because both of them really want a session but more often it is because one person wants the session and has had to convince the other to come along. That is equally divided between men and women too by the way. It is not always the woman who wants the session. Equally, the male half will want to do the session and will push his other half to come along. In the end they will always end up on the same page though, glad they came to us for a session and loving their photographs.

Couples photography Brisbane

It is interesting to see how different men and women are with their ideas on photographs. When I ask the woman to show me images that she likes as reference for herself, they will mostly be discrete and with a soft feel. When I ask the man for his ideas, they will almost always be sexier and a less subtle. During the session we will usually cover both styles so that both achieve what they want from the session.

A typical couples photography session will run for around 2 hours. We will start photographing the woman first on her own to allow her to relax into the session. We will then photograph the man for a few special images which will usually be a cool headshot and any sexy images that his wife/girlfriend may have requested. Once both are relaxed and settled we will start on the couples images.

Glamour photography session with our Karen

Karen

This shoot was for the love of my life and business partner, Karen who has been styling, set designing and helping to pose, the women, men and couples at our studio since 2008. At 53 (in 2012) and after a year out with breast cancer, Karen has decided it is her turn to get in front of the camera and have some beautiful photos for her and the family. This goes to show that natural beauty and grace can be found in every woman, no matter her age. She has found the process and the finished shots to be a great confidence boost and a very liberating experience.

If you wish to book a session with us please call Karen on: 0402 230669 or email here.

We also filmed some of the day and made a short film which is below.

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.
