Model folio session with Akima

Akima came to see us for her very first model portfolio. We loved her look so much when she came in that we had to ask if we could video the session and thankfully she was good with that. We had a fantastic time photographing her and we love the finished images. We photograph a lot of first time models as we make sure that we have the time available to guide them and help them through this often daunting first time experience. We give full guidance on posing and styling and will discuss wardrobe in advance to get the best results.

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.

Fashion photography session for aspiring model, Danielle

The modelling industry is a very competitive industry, so you must have the very best portfolio possible. Danielle decided that we were the right photographers to book her fashion photography session with so that she would have the very best chance of success in this tough industry. 23yr old Danielle is from northern NSW and she drove the hour to see us along with her younger sister Jessica. She was extremely easy to photograph and we had a great session with her. We couldn’t resist putting the girls together for one special photo which Danielle is going to give to her mum on Mother’s day and we are certain that mum will absolutely love it.

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.

Model photography session for Emma Thompson

fashionfolio 001

This week the beautiful Emma Thompson travelled from the Sunshine Coast for her first model photography session. She has recently turned 18 and has a goal of getting into some modelling whilst finishing her university degree.

Emma loved her session and we found her very easy to work with and to get great results from. Emma will take her images to a few agencies to start her modelling journey and we wish her the very best.

Emma chose to add some implied nude images to her portfolio but that is not a necessity. The type of images we shoot for you will depend upon the style of work you wish to get. We shoot model folios for all ages and have photographed a lot of younger models starting out from age 14 & upwards. For the inspiring models under 18 we keep the images age appropriate and will not shoot nude or topless.

A word of advice about your images:

Some modelling agencies will offer to do your model photography for you, but they will retain ownership of the images, so if you decide to move onto another agent, you won’t be able to take your photos. If you have your model folio session done by an independent photographer, you will retain the ownership and if your not happy with your agent, you simply move onto another one, with your images.

If you would like information on a model folio session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.
