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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
