Self empowerment - a testimonial with Denise after seeing her sexy boudoir images.

A photoshoot is more than just about sexy images, it's about gaining self confidence, seeing yourself in a new light, learning to love yourself for yourself and so many more things that I can't really put into words. Denise who just had her own photoshoot summed it up better than we ever could.
Thank you Denise for reminding us again what we do it for :)

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 !

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!

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 !!
