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.

You can also find a link to download our free booket on “Planning your perfect couples photography session” on this link which is packed with helpful information including what to wear, how to prepare, do’s and don’ts plus lots of hints and tips plus pricing.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
One piece teddy or corset
A nice lace teddy or bodysuit is perfect, especially if you need to cover stretch marks or if you are self conscious about your tummy. They are sexy and elegant and flattering to all body types.
There are so many different designs, colours and fabrics to choose from but once again, if you are unsure on colours, stick to the basic black, white or cream. They will always work and they will be easier to team up with our sets and props.
Corsets do seem to come and go. Sometimes in style and sometimes not but never the less, they do look amazing in photographs. They are extremely flattering on all body types and can give off a particular sex appeal that can add mood to your image. We have a few boned, satin corsets in different colours to fit sizes 8 – 14 in the studio or bring your own in.
Garter belt, stockings & heels
Most women have no idea how to put the garter and stockings on but never fear, I have become expert at it. Garter belts are great if you have a problem area on the tummy to hide and teamed with stockings they look fantastic and sexy. Just make sure that your stockings are the right size and not too tight.
We have a black and a white garter belt that you are welcome to use as well as a range of stockings if you do not have any of your own. Stockings and garter belts are also great to use in the image as a focus such as pulling them on or attaching the stocking to your garter.
Lace, feathers or fur
Robes are fantastic to wear either over the top of your lingerie or by themselves with nothing underneath. They are soft and feminine but can also be sexy and seductive. Bring your own favourite robe or use ours. We have a black, white and pink lace robe for your use.
Little tops are great to team with knickers and stockings for a sexy but slightly more covered look.
If you love the “Movie Starlet” look, why not go old style with a feather boa or fur stole. We have feather boas available in white, red & black plus a fur stole, or bring your own.
Fur Jackets also look awesome with lingerie underneath or be brave and go nude with your favourite heels.
Men’s oversize shirt
Mens business shirts are very popular and make great boudoir outfits. It is one of our favourites and is so versatile. Wear it with lingerie underneath, or just a sexy pair of lacy knickers, or completely naked.
The shirt can cover as much or as little as you like. Bring in ‘his’ favourite shirt or use ours, the choice is yours. We have a white business shirt in small, medium and large.
The oversized jumper would be one of our most popular outfit choices. They are perfect for boudoir, especially for those who are a little shy and want to be sexy without showing too much skin.
We have three jumpers here for your use. We have the cream cable knit jumper, grey button front and the white plain jumper (all pictured on this page). They will fit sizes 8 – 14. If you are over a size 14 you would need to bring in your own jumper.
Be sure to bring a matching pair of knickers also and preferably with a nice lace side. We do have lace knickers available in white and black but it is a good idea to bring your own if you have them.
The white sheet
This is a favourite of many women as it is the ultimate in “leaving very little to the imagination”. It is easy and makes a fantastic extra look. You can appear to be naked while revealing less flesh than lingerie and it can be great to hide those problem areas if you need to. Team it up with simple white lace knickers and you have a sexy, playful look. There is no need to bring a sheet. We have that here for you.
Who doesn’t love a great pair of jeans and it seems that the more ripped they are, the better. We have an awesome pair of ripped up jeans which will fit size 8 – 12 that you are most welcome to use or bring your’s or your guys favourite pair.
They can be worn topless or with your favourite bra or bikini top or with a sexy singlet knotted at the front or side. Leave unbuttoned or unzipped for an extra sexy look or go for the playful girl next door look.
If in doubt, wear nothing.
We have perfected the ‘nudoir’ session so that our lovely ladies can have the option of combining a little bit of art nude in with their boudoir session. Once again, we pose these sessions according to your specific body type.
If you are feeling brave and wish to shoot nudoir then we are your best choice. Combine a few tasteful art nude images with your boudoir session and have an amazing variety of images for your keepsake album or to keep as private digital files.
There are so many options available in one of our sessions. You may add some headshots for your online or personal branding profile or bring your guy in for a few romantic or sexy couples images. Mix any of our styles together into the one session.
We want your session to be awesome and all that you have wished for, so please tell us your ideas and let’s get busy making your dreams come true.

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.
If you would like information on a photography session tailored to you please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or by this link.
We are well known for our tasteful and elegant nudoir photography for women, men and couples. Our home photography studio is private and heated/cooled for your comfort. We will style and pose you specifically for your body type. We realise that you will be extremely nervous but that usually lasts for only the first 10 minutes or so. You will very quickly gain confidence with us and you will relax and feel comfortable. Once you see your images you will feel very proud of your achievements and many women tell us that they feel very ’empowered’ after their session.
You are most welcome to bring your partner/husband in with you for some special nudoir couples images and we welcome same sex couples (additional hair and makeup for 2 women as a couples is an extra $140)
Our sessions all begin with a beautiful relaxing makeover which will make you feel amazing so consider booking a night out afterwards to take advantage of your awesome hair and makeup.
Our session fee is $250 and includes your session fee and makeover. You can then add prints, wall art or a print or digital package to suit your budget. Payment can be made by bank transfer, cash or eftpos. We require a $100 deposit to hold your session and book your makeup artist. Clients typically spend between $500 – $1500 and payment plans can be arranged if needed.
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.
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.
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.
Over the past few weeks we have had a great time photographing headshots for some very talented actors and dancers from Sheridan’s Studio 1 on the Gold Coast.
Sheridan contacted us as she wanted to redo her casting site and wanted the images for her talent to be consistent in quality and style. She loved our work and we were happy to collaborate with her on a headshot package to suit her talent, giving them the best headshots possible and keeping the style and quality consistent across her casting site.
Our headshots are provided in high and medium resolution within 4 days of your session and are in colour and in black & white. You can find further information and booking details on this link: https://www.deanagar.com.au/brisbane-headshots-booking/
Over the past 2 weeks we had 4 talented children in for child portrait sessions. These children were either musicians or ballet dancers and they displayed an awesome amount of talent and potential. We had a great time photographing them and showcasing their particular talents.
Our child portrait sessions are only $79 and you can bring two children in for that one session fee. You can then choose your print package or individual wall art pieces of your favourite images.
Let us photograph your child and capture their unique talent and personality at this time of their lives, in photographs that will hang on your wall for many many years and make you smile each time you walk past them.
You can find more information on our child portrait packages on this link or you can call Karen on 0402 230 669 or by email on email@example.com
Yesterday we had a fantastic boudoir photography session with Chlo who was incredibly easy to photograph. Chlo was fun and a natural in front of the camera which made our job so easy.
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.
