You do SO much more than capture beautiful pictures...

Thank you again for a unique and special experience at your studio. I really enjoyed the entire day and feel like its helped me reconnect with the little cheeky, fun spark that has been hidden somewhere deep, deep underneath gym gear, bits of dried banana and baby puke! 

You do SO much more than capture beautiful pictures...helping women reconnect with who they really are is a such a special gift you give and life changing so THANKYOU !

Amazing! Not only was it enjoyable, but I felt utterly and completely beautiful.

Earlier this year I visited Brisbane for a number of boudoir sessions. Every now and then it's great to get out of the studio and work on location. Especially when you meet such cool people.

Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?

I was chosen as a 'Beautiful Breasts Model' for Sydney Cosmetic Clinic/ Breast Excellence Australia.

What made you decide to hire our studio for your photoshoot?

Breast Excellence Australia have used your studio in the past. Your work is outstanding!

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

I was a little nervous before my shoot as I have never been professionally photographed before, especially in lingerie. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but researching your work prior to the shoot, I knew I would be in good hands.

Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?

Amazing! Not only was it enjoyable, but I felt utterly and completely beautiful. I felt confident, empowering, sexy and most importantly comfortable at all times. Your work is beyond compare and I am so grateful that I could experience a shoot of my own.

What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?

I can't recommend doing a shoot of your own enough. Not only is it a once in a lifetime experience, but a keepsake for years to come. You won't regret it!

I walked out of your studio with a renewed sense of confidence, pride and belief in myself and my body.

Good afternoon Chris and Kate,

I just want to send a massive thank you for my shoot last week. Chris, from the second I walked in the door you instantly made me feel at ease. You made the whole shoot not only easy, but thoroughly enjoyable. 

I walked out of your studio with a renewed sense of confidence, pride and belief in myself and my body. Over the last few years I have had several surgeries to try and correct some semi-major medical troubles I have been having, and between the surgeries and medications my body has fluctuated in weight, causing stretch marks, scars and a total loss of confidence. I know that I don’t have the perfect body, that I still have my flaws; but for the first time I can recall I am truly comfortable in my own skin. This is something money can’t buy, and I can’t thank you enough for helping me to feel beautiful again. 

I cannot wait to gift the finished product to my fiancé on the morning of our wedding. 

Kind regards,
Kristina

It was amazing to see myself in such a beautiful light and I'll treasure these photos for the rest of my life.

Interview with Miss K
 

Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?

It was coming up to my ten year anniversary, partner's birthday, our wedding, I've been attending the gym regularly for the last six months and it's something I've always wanted to do in my "middle age" for posterity.

What made you decide to hire our studio for your photoshoot?

The professional response and your own studios. Other photographers required hiring a hotel room or had responses that were "cute" (colors, lots of fonts) but not professional. The costs were clear up front. I appreciated the attachment sent beforehand that answered a lot of questions (finding lingerie in Sydney is tough!) and my expectations were clear going in.

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

Very excited leading up to it but very nervous going in on the day. Looking back, I could barely hold a conversation with Chris while getting my make-up done.

Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?

Excellent. I mean, personally, I cringed through the whole thing because it was just so out of character for me and I'd have trouble hyping myself to do it again because it was hard work (thank you for all the reminders to arch my back and breath through my mouth). But really excellent. Chris was professional the whole time, I felt like I was in a safe space, thank God that air-con was blasting because I was so nervous, I trusted his technique and really, really appreciated his guidance as I had no idea what I was doing. I'm sure it was a lot of work for him too so all credit to his efforts. I also appreciated seeing a range of photos beforehand (sweet to more provocative) so I knew me getting naked wasn't outside Chris' comfort zone.

What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?

Absolutely do it. I've been telling my friends all week it was one of the most empowering things I think I've done as an adult and I've walked taller since. It was amazing to see myself in such a beautiful light and I'll treasure these photos for the rest of my life.

it was special to see myself in a different light and celebrate my personal beauty!

Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?

To capture a special event/time of my life. 

What made you decide to hire our studio for your photoshoot?

Came highly recommended. The photographs on the website had such variety to cater for a range of reasons (maternity, boudoir, couples etc...). The fine art nude gallery photos were also very inspirational and tastefully done.

 

 

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

I was very excited for the photo shoot - I was hoping beforehand to capture the style of photos that originally inspired me.

 

 

 

Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?

I thoroughly enjoyed my photo shoot and wish I could relive it! I felt comfortable, proud, beautiful and at ease. I was also very touched to see the photos at the end - it was special to see myself in a different light and celebrate my personal beauty!

Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?

My fiancée has wanted a glamour photo shoot for years ! So I finally decided to do it , which he was SO excited I finally actually said " yes "!

sexy glamour

What made you decide to hire our studio for your photoshoot?

We researched online and saw your website , it looked very professional and " exactly " the style of photos we wanted to try. We also liked how you had other images of other women who had previously done their glamour photo shoots and theirs looked SO amazing ! We liked how your photos were not just one style .. glamour , black and white , bodouir etc.

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

Very nervous but very excited at the same time ! Part of me thought I am really too old for this ! Laughs . I was very conscious I was not a tiny little figure woman .. but a more curvy woman . Also I was VERY nervous as I surprised my finance and brought along black high heels . I had major ankle surgery where 8 bones were screwed in my ankle and Achilles cut only a few months prior . SO I could not walk in the heels .. but we're just for show ...laughs But Chris the photographer knew this and was SO patient and understanding of this .. and knew what my limitations were and took this into consideration. " Thank you Chris for doing this throughout ! You are a legend !

Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?

It was the most amazing experience! Very empowering and Chris the photographer made me feel very comfortable and at ease the whole time! To think I had partially nude shots as well as totally nude ( some very seductive erotic ones too I might add is absolutely " incredible "! My fiancée has not stopped raving about the images! It was the utmost beautiful gift I could have given him he said! He will treasure the images ( like me ) for ever !!

Very happy with all photos.

What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?

Do it!! Do it now, you won't regret it!

It took our relationship to a whole new level in the feelings.

We love shooting couples because it's a privilege to see and experience for a short time the amazing connection of a couple in love.

These guys came all the way from the top end of Australia to have a couple shoot. But read on...

Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?

We never really got the chance to do one on one wedding photos and wanted to do something sexy and show our love for each other. To make us feel incredible about ourselves.

 

 

What made you decide to hire our studio for your photo shoot?

We loved the amazing photos that you do. Then I realised you did couples and it was something special for us to do while we were in Sydney

We were really nervous and had no idea what to expect or what to do.

It was the best feeling and made us feel incredible. It boosted our confidence. The connection we felt during the photo shoot was comfortable, sexy and intimate. It took our relationship to a whole new level in the feelings.

No it was perfect all round

Sexy couple photo shoot

Looking at the photos I can't believe it is me!

Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?

First wedding anniversary present for the husband (bonus because it was for me too!)

What made you decide to hire our studio for your photoshoot?

Easy to use website. Photos on the website were amazing. Chris and Kate replied to my emails quickly and with options. Prices were reasonable. Well publicised.

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

The morning of I felt both excited and nervous. Once I had my makeup and hair done I felt amazing (even beautiful). I had never done anything like this before so I didn't really know what to expect or what I was getting myself in to.

Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?

Chris was amazing to work with (despite me initially thinking it was going to be awkward with a male shooting; he was super professional and I felt very comfortable). Looking at the photos I can't believe it is me! I look hot and I am so excited to get my products.

What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?

DO IT! There is nothing bad that can come out of you doing one; you will only feel better about yourself.

Is there anything we could do to make this experience completely perfect?

Nothing I can think of at this stage. I am just so excited to get my products!

Now this is unusual...

... unusual because I am usually behind the camera not in front of it.

Earlier this year I was honoured to be asked by the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) to present 2 workshops on boudoir photography and posing. The event, the Hair of the Dog 2017 was held in Queensland and attended by our colleagues and friends in the industry.

It's always a bit daunting presenting in front of Australia's best photographers. I was shooting live with a model and my camera was hooked up to a projection screen.

Here are some images of the workshop, with me trying my best not to look too ridiculous while explaining the poses to the model and the audience :)
