Sydney boudoir

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 !!

Nervous, felt bloated, thoughts like I need to have spent more time at gym :)

Relaxed quite quickly. Great guidance during the shoot as we had no previous experience and the cues given allowed us to keep calm and relaxed. 
Very happy with all photos.

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.

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.

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 :)

Do you provide hair and makeup service?

This is a question we get asked all the time. Yes we do. Professional hair and makeup is actually already included in the session fee.

We have an amazing team of hair and makeup artists who will look after you. You just let them know what kind of style you are after, maybe you prefer natural and sexy or maybe you prefer a more sexy dramatic makeup.

A quick tip from our makeup artist:

To ensure you look your very best for your photoshoot please arrive with a clean face (no makeup), clean dry hair and tidy eyebrows.

If you have any areas of concern that you need covered up just let our makeup artists know.

We strongly encourage to always having both done by professionals - it really makes a difference in the final images.
