I recently photographed the sassy, Missy H. She was such fun to work with as she has a real quirky sense of humour that just lends itself to mine. Therefore, we had a ball and chatted more than I photographed…hehe! However, managed to get some nice shots
The only thing I had to work on was to get her to smile as she has such a stunning smile that lights up her whole face. So after lots of cheesy jokes, I managed to capture a few smiles
Her awesome make-up was done by Jana Kriel of Jana Kriel Makeup. Her work is so stunning – she used such a beautiful colour on Missy H’s eyes – totally loved the look! Thanks Jana…your work is fantastic
Last week-end I did a shoot with the gorgeous Miss Michelle. She seemed so quiet and reserved when she arrived but as we started the shoot I saw her cute and cheeky little smile – which was just a must to capture!
Had a fantastic shoot, despite the extremely cold weather – thank goodness for gas heaters, kept me and Michelle warm
Her make-up was done by the fabulous Jana Kriel of Jana Kriel Makeup. I was so impressed with Jana’s work. It was beautiful. Any ladies looking for a MUA for a shoot or their wedding – get hold of Jana!
I met Miss P about a year or so ago and have always wanted to do a boudoir shoot with her (as I just love her tats) so when she agreed, I was over the moon! And if I do say so myself, the pics are smoking hot! She looks amazing!
Miss P was such fun to work with and shoot. She is so easy going and filled with great ideas and concepts. The first two images below are of her braving the outside garden area in her very sexy lingerie. Even though the sun was a little harsh, we got some wonderful pics.
Her stunning make-up was done by Shandre - so a big thank you as it looked awesome!
When I think about lingerie…for me each piece has its own unique look, feel and personality. We are normally drawn to the lingerie that we are most comfortable in, makes us feel and look great by enhancing our assets and character. These pieces normally share some or all of our personality traits.
We don’t all share the same perception when it comes to lingerie, therefore, a negligee may not be seen in the same way and light to you as it is to me. I may see it as romantic, while you may think it is sensual. Neither of these are incorrect, the traits are similar but sightly different, giving each of us our own unique perception of how we view and feel about lingerie.
I came across this blog post – What’s Your Lingerie Personality, which got me thinking and thus inspired this post : if I had to classify my boudoir photography style as a piece of lingerie what would you be?
I had to think about this for a while, because in my mind I was two very different pieces, and I was trying to figure out how they fit together…after a while I realised that they can go together and actually compliment and bring out the best in each other. My style is both a corset, which I see as sexy, edgy, bold & curvy; and a baby doll, which I perceive as soft, feminine and pretty. I know these seem like complete opposites yet somehow they mash up, compliment each other and make up my style.
Just a selection of images of the sassy and sexy Miss C…she is stunning, isn’t she!
She was such a pleasure to work with and lots of fun to photograph. She was up for anything and has such an easy-going and fun-loving personality. This lady really has a beautiful and expressive face…Wow and the smouldering hot looks she gives…can just imagine what they must do to her fiancé (Congrads to Miss C on her recent engagement…wishing you all the best…think u may need a bridal shoot ;)) Thanks Miss C, you are fab and hope we can work together again soon!
Another big thank you to Candida from Decadently U Lingerie for the sponsorship of this beautiful and sexy lingerie. If you are looking for any lingerie or just something sexy, give me a shout for Candida’s details (her website is still under construction).
A final thank you to Shandre for her fab make-up…Miss C’s eye were stunning! If anyone is looking for a talented MUA…get hold of Shandre!
If you want to see some more images of Miss C, visit my colleague and friend Chantal Drummond‘s blog.
I decided that it was time to put my boudoir skills to the test and see if I was able to photograph a number of ladies in a day. I contacted a very good friend of mine Chantal from Chantal Drummond Photography and ran idea by her, she loved it and wanted in on the action.
So, we set out and found a beautiful location : The Wesley boutique hotel in Bryanston, a talented make-up artist : Shandre and some gorgeous ladies. We also organised to have some of the lingerie sponsored by Dedicatedly You, which added some variety to the outfits.
Thanks to all those involved for making it such a successful, fun and fantastic day!
Here is a sneak peak of the photo’s from the day :
