Glamour & boudoir photography session with Rebecca

One question that we are asked a lot is “do we do glamour photography sessions of fuller figures, or women over 30 years of age?”  A lot of ladies assume that we only photograph size 8, 20yr old models but that is very far from the fact. We photograph all shapes, sizes and ages.

For this reason we have decided to put together an “experience” video featuring the lovely Rebecca. Rebecca is a mother of 2 young men in their early 20’s, she is curvy and turning 40 this year and I believe, is a perfect representation of many other mums out there wanting something special, and to feel good about themselves after years of being a “mum” and carer for the family.

One of the items on her bucket list was a glamour session, so here it is. She very kindly agreed to allow us to film the session and to record her thoughts on women, figures and the session itself.

Portrait photography for women

Portrait-photography 001

Portrait Photography – A little bit of history 

Portrait photography or portraiture is photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background or context may be included.

The relatively low cost of the daguerreotype in the middle of the 19th century and the reduced sitting time for the subject, though still much longer than now, led to a general rise in the popularity of portrait photography over painted portraiture. The style of these early works reflected the technical challenges associated with long exposure times and the painterly aesthetic of the time. Subjects were generally seated against plain backgrounds and lit with the soft light of an overhead window and whatever else could be reflected with mirrors. Advances in photographic equipment and techniques developed, and gave photographers the ability to capture images with shorter exposure times and the making of portraits outside the studio.

Portrait photography for Samantha.

portrait-photography-session 008

Samantha is a personal development,  business and wellness coach and wanted a folio of portrait images to use for business purposes. She wanted a fashion edge to her images rather than the usual happy smily portraits that most of the people in her industry use. She wanted to stand out.

This was a fun session as Sam was very easy to photograph as well as being a very confident and positive person. We love the portraits that we managed to capture for her and thank her for giving us permission to use them here.

Many ladies think that they must be naked or in lingerie to shoot with us. That is very far from the truth as you can see by this session with Sam. Her outfits were very simple but very elegant and effective.

During your session you are welcome to combine several styles of photography according to your personal comfort level, including glamour, boudoir, portraiture, vintage and artistic nude. You are also welcome to bring your husband/partner in for a few romantic images together if you wish. Your session includes wonderful relaxing makeover (hair and makeup) so consider planning a night out that evening to take advantage of your fantastic look.

If you would like information on a portrait photography session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or via this link.

Glamour photography session for Elisha

glamour-photography-Elisha001

Elisha’s parents purchased her one of our Sexy Sunday glamour photography sessions for her birthday and this week she came in for her session. She was very nervous and admitted to us that she considered not using the voucher as she was so scared but she came in and absolutely loved her time with us and the images.

We received this wonderful email from her mum, Tracy after the session which we would love to share with you. Tracy was so happy that she booked a session for herself.

“Hi Karen & Dean,
Last night Elisha showed us her finished photos, wow! I just wanted to say a big Thank You to everyone there. She said you all made her feel so comfortable and she is thrilled to bits with her photos. She said it was such a good experience she may even do it again one day (and that she would never have even thought to do it for herself). The whole experience I think has been a great boost to her confidence, especially as she posted a couple on facebook and was amazed at how many of her friends commented on how beautiful she is. So again, thanks for all your expertise and efforts, it has helped her understand and see the beauty we all already see in her.
Kindest regards
Tracy Johnson”
When you book one of our Sexy Sunday sessions you can choose to shoot glamour, boudoir, nude, pinup, fashion, pregnancy, fitness or you can combine and have some of each. You will receive a beautiful makeover, your session and 4 stunning edited digital images.
If you would like more information on one of our Sexy Sunday mini sessions please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or see this link for details and available dates.

Vintage photography session for Hilary

This was a Vintage photography session for Hilary who loves her bustle skirts, corsets and little hats. Blend the fashion of the 1800’s in with a touch of Steam Punk and you have Hilary. We loved being a part of this session with her, it was so much fun.

Hilary’s good friend Bobbie, made her 2 fantastic skirts and came along for both moral support, and to help strap her into the corsets. We loved catching up with Bobbie again as we had photographed her and her partner a few years ago for a couples session. So,  when Hilary told her she wanted to do a photography session in her beautiful outfits, Bobbie said the only place to go was to us, which is what we love to hear. We hope you enjoy the results of this session with the Beautiful Hilary.

Model folio photography session for Rani

model folio photography

17 year old Rani came to us this week to kick start her modelling portfolio with a model folio photography session. Her mum chose us because she loved our work, but also, because we have a lot of experience photographing first time models.

There are several reasons to choose us for your model/fashion photography session.

The first of course, is that you love our work, but a very important reason is that the models, and especially the young, inexperienced girls feel safe and comfortable with us. Dean and I (Karen) are a team and I am always there through the session. I will help with the posing, dressing and styling and Dean is the talent on the camera and editing. We find this works very well for us.

We take the time needed to get the image as perfect as possible and we will help with styling and posing meaning that first timers are not left floundering, wondering what to do. For the experienced models wanting to update their portfolio, we will let you “do your own thing” but we will fine tune and perfect your pose to avoid those images which are great, but, if only the hand was not there . . . . We won’t just click off a thousand images and hope one looks great. We will work on one and perfect it so we know it looks great.

For the beginners, we guide every step and the young model will definitely learn some basics during a session with us. This means that if she does find a model job down the track, that she will know some basics on etiquette and posing, as not all photographers take the time we do in a session and most will expect the model to pose and style themselves. So, not only will the model come out of a session with us with some great images, but the information she will gain will be like a mini workshop and will push her to work harder and know what to focus on for this career path.

Below is a range of photos from our fashion photography / model folio section.

You can find our fashion photography gallery here

We photograph models and actors of all ages. If you would like information on a session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.

68 year old David came to us this week for a portrait photography session.

He has battled many injuries in his life but has kept himself in excellent shape. We feel privileged to have been able to photograph him for posterity.

David won the South Australian Olympic middleweight boxing trials in 1968. He went on to train with the team in Melbourne, but unfortunately did not get selected to compete in Mexico for the Olympics. After the 1968 Olympic trials win he went on to win SA Open Amateur Middleweight Boxing title in 1969.

We hope you enjoy the images.

Glamour photography session for Cess

This was a fun glamour photography session for Cecilia Arendsen from Brisbane. Cec’s hair started out beautifully neat and smooth in the soft natural light portrait with the flowers, but after a bit of water we achieved a very cool raggy look which we loved in the black & white images.

Here is a link to our glamour/boudoir gallery.

Fashion, glamour & boudoir mixed session for Amie

012 fashion portrait photography Amie

Dean and I have spent the last week watching a series of photography workshops on lighting and photography techniques by the amazing Felix Kunze and Sue Bryce. It inspired us to purchase some new props, make up some canvas backdrops & look at a new way of lighting our sessions.

We loved the new lighting techniques in the video so much that we decided to use the new technique when we photographed Amie & we love the results. It is so soft and particularly fantastic for women. No more retouching harsh lighting. We have been using natural light along with flash for a lot of our sessions, but this new lighting style involves diffusing flash lighting to emulate soft sunlight. It gives us a lot more control and consistency and gives us that soft natural light look even on the cloudiest of days or at night. Fantastic!

We have photographed Amie 4 times before this and always enjoy a session with her. We hope that you enjoy these images. I think you will be seeing this style a lot more in the future from us.
