Glamour & boudoir photography session with Jade

We are so happy that Jade chose us for her glamour and boudoir photography session. We had a lot of fun photographing her and using our new Hollywood lighting setup and it was fantastic that she gave us permission to use the images on our site.

If you would like information on a boudoir or glamour photography session with us please call Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on karen@deanagar.com.au

 

Hollywood glamour portraits for women.

We are thrilled to announce our new Hollywood glamour portraits series. We scoured Australia to find our beautiful, authentic film light from Paramount Studios in Hollywood. She is from the 1940’s and still has the name plate for Paramount Studio on the back. The bulb was missing and the wiring was for US but that was fine, we just wanted the shell and she looks amazing. We were so happy when we located her in Melbourne and can only imagine the movies and TV shows that she may have been a part of from 1939 and onwards until she was retired.

When paired up with a nice bit of haze, a golden gel and our newly created background, we get the exact look that we were looking for. For this session you will see Emma looking very elegant and beautiful, helping us to achieve exactly what we had envisaged when we conceived the idea a month ago. We hope that you love the images as much as we do. If you would like to enquire about a Hollywood glamour session for yourself please email on karen@deanagar.com.au or call me on 0402 230 669.

Just a heads up, you will need a lovely evening gown although we do have a few here so please call and we can discuss.

What to wear for your perfect Boudoir Photography session

 This handy guide will help you with outfit ideas for your perfect boudoir photography session.

The beautiful thing about boudoir is that there is no proper outfit to wear as anything goes. There is no perfect image, no perfect body type, no perfect age. With the right posing and lighting, anybody can look beautiful in a boudoir session. You can wear anything from sexy lingerie or your guy’s favourite t shirt to a simple white sheet. This guide will give you some inspiration and I hope it will put some concerns to bed for you.

If you have any questions at all, I am a phone call away on 0402 230 669 or email me at karen@deanagar.com.au.

 

Two piece lingerie 

A two piece set is probably the staple of boudoir but by no means the only option. Some sets can be very expensive but you can get some really nice lingerie from KMart & similar stores. It is great to treat yourself to expensive lingerie but if you have a limited budget just stick to the basic black, white or cream and find something that is soft, feminine and lacy. You can’t go wrong with that. Don’t worry if you cant afford a suspender belt or stockings as we have white and black belts and a range of stockings for your use.

We prefer underwear with a nice lacy side as g-strings tend to look quite hard at the sides. A nice brazilian cut is perfect if you can find that. Some ladies come in to us with 6 or more sets of lingerie which is really not needed. 2 sets are just fine if that is all that your budget can stretch to.

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.

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.

Our sessions are held in our private home studio in beautiful Bulimba and you are welcome to mix any style into your session or bring your husband/partner in for a few special images together if you wish.

If you would like to chat about a boudoir photography session please call Karen on 0402 230 669 or you can find further information on this link.

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 an impressive 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.

Our booklets will give you all of the information you need to plan your session with help on what to wear, tips, prices and do’s & don’ts.

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.

City lights glamour photography session with Jenny

Last year Jenny came to us for a nude/boudoir photography session. Jenny is a ballet teacher and we achieved some beautiful images with her showing some stunning poses on pointe.

This time Jenny came to us for a “City lights” glamour photography session. After having her hair and makeup done by one of our fantastic makeup artists, we did a few studio images and then jumped into the car for the short ride from our new studio in Bulimba, to the River Walk at New Farm for some glamour photographs. Jenny had found a wonderful dress especially for the session and it looked sensational against a backdrop of the city and the Story Bridge.
