I recently photographed Miss F, from Joburg.co.za and Joburg’s Darling. We had such fun, Jana did the most beautiful make-up – loved the green eye shadow – looked so amazing and sexy!
Miss F was a little nervous at times but managed to calm her nerves and we had plenty laughs…and I spoke far too much…as usual! hehe!
I was so delighted when she said she would be writing a review of her experience for Joburg’s Darling…wow what an honour! The article is so fantastic…I love it and am so grateful! If you want to have a look at it – The Perfect Gift for Your Man!
Below is a selection of my favourite images from the shoot:
Ms J is a sexy lady and mother of 1, who wanted a shoot for herself, as she was feeling like she wasn’t as gorgeous as she used to be…wow…was she wrong! She is smoking hot…look at her smouldering green eyes…they are stunning!
Jana from Jana Kriel Make up pampered Ms J and made her look like the vixen she is. I just love the purple eye shadow, really makes her eyes pop and brings out the green. Jana always does such a fantastic job…just love her work!
Below is a message that Ms J sent me. I just couldn’t stop smiling and really warmed my heart to know that I made a lady feel this way. Message from Ms J:
I could barely decide which images I wanted as they were all so lovely. Shelley really made me feel relaxed and sexy, I couldn’t believe that was me in the photos. I would just like to thank both Jana and Shelley for the fantastic experience. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone and everyone.

If you are ever looking for a different, unique and personalised wedding anniversary gift for your partner. Why not have a boudoir shoot of yourself done. Your partner will love it and it will be such a pleasant surprise.
A client recently booked a shoot because it was her one year wedding anniversary. As we all know traditionally the gift given is one of paper. Therefore, we did the shoot and had a beautiful leather bound album done for her…perfect paper gift!
A boudoir album can work for paper (1 year), leather (3 years) and just about any other anniversary…I just love this idea, as think it is such an awesome and unique gift…that your partner will never expect

Here is the list of traditional wedding gifts per year :
I recently did a shoot with the beautiful and sexy Miss B…she is a model that is just starting out in the industry and wanted to include some boudoir to her portfolio. I of course, jumped at the chance as she is so stunning and has the most incredible curves in just the right places
Candice assisted with the shoot… I am hoping to teach her and have her assist me a lot more in the future. However, this was her first boudoir shoot being the photographer and not the client. She did a fantastic job and took some fab images.
We had such fun…and got some awesome sensual and sexy shots

I know this is my Pretty Boudoir photo blog but I also feel that from these blogs and images you should get a sense of who I am. As a lot of who I am, is in my photography, so here is a little insight into me
I decided that I wanted a tattoo on my wrist…I already have 2 which I had done about 9 years ago. I have been thinking about getting another one for some years but hadn’t found a design that spoke to me. However, last week I found a design online, so I booked, paid and had it done yesterday.
The design I found was a Celtic heart design with the triquetra (all my tattoo’s are Celtic…they have a deep spiritual meaning for me). I had the tattoo done at Fallen Heroes in Parkhurst…like wow, fab place! I was so impressed with their professionalism and work…Bryan du Rand did such a fab job and I would highly recommend him for any work you want done. Go have a look at his portfolio…some really beautiful custom work!
Also, he really helped to calm me down, as he realised I was a little nervous. I was expecting it to be very painful…as the others were so long ago…I couldn’t remember. However, I must admit it hardly hurt…which was a pleasant surprise.
Well, I am sure you all want to know what it looks like. So here is a celphone pic I took right after it was completed. I must just say another huge thank you to Bryan and the team at Fallen Heroes for such a fantastic experience…might see you in a future
A very close friend of mine, Chantal who is also a fantastic photographer asked me to help her out and take a nice profile pic of her, that she can use on her website. As you can imagine, as a photographer you are normally behind the camera and not in front of it. In addition, ordinarily you are not used to or do not like to have photos taken of you. So this was a challenge but like I promised her, we would find a fantastic angle that would work even though she wasn’t convinced… photographers…we can be so difficult…lol!
I only took a few shots, and this is the one that we just loved and decided to use. Now, doesn’t she just look stunning. Not only is she going to use it for her website but is also going to print and frame it for her significant other
This is my second fairytale inspired shoot…so if you go down to the woods…you are sure of a big surprise…Snow White is out in true boudoir style
Thought, I would also share an interesting little fact about Snow White, that I never knew…it is a German fairytale known as Schneewittchen. With the best known version being the one collected by the Brothers Grimm (the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales) in 1812. Now you know
Back to the details of my shoot : I paired up with the beautiful Rozi in the Bryanston forest. We actually did the shoot shortly after the Red Riding Hood inspired shoot. It just made sense to do them one after each other. It was lots of fun and we had such beautiful light…which made for some stunning images.
I have always been fascinated with and loved fairy tales and the characters in them. Using this as my inspiration, I decided to start my fairy tale series with little red riding hood…I embarked on an alternative version of this tale rather than the traditional, so I bought a little bit of boudoir to it
I knew a beautiful lady who would be perfect for the role of little red hiding hood (Rozi)… managed to find a super cute outfit and discovered a hidden treasure location in Bryanston…so we were A for Away.
We set off to the forest on Sunday afternoon to shoot…it was great fun, and challenging all at the same time. We had a few people come and see what we were doing but all in all it was quiet and we managed to get some fantastic and magical shots.
Here are a few of my favourite shots from the shoot.
