Vintage Boudoir Photo Shoot | Johannesburg Boudoir Photographer

I haven’t posted in a while, although I have been rather busy with boudoir shoots, the thing is I’ve needed to wait for my clients to give me permission to post some of the photos from their boudoir shoots. Here are a few images from a vintage boudoir shoot I did a little while ago with Jana,  a stunning client, that really emulated the vintage pinup style of yesteryear,   we had so much fun with her shoot.  This vintage boudoir photo shoot was done in a lovely boudoir studio situated in Joburg, its perfectly suited for a stunning boudoir photo session. Posted with permission from my client. Remember ladies, I will never post boudoir images without your permission, I respect my clients privacy.

PinUp photography by Bronwyn

Bettie B is in to the full swing of things again, and so I thought I would share a few images from a recent  Rockabilly Pin-Up shoot done with the gorgeous Ashleigh, at Pretville in Hartbeespoort Dam.   The shoot was done as a birthday gift for hubby, needless to say he absolutely loved it, and Ash had an absolute ball during your shoot.

Lady N’s 30th Birthday Wonder Woman & Vintage Themed Photo Shoot

30th Birthday Studio Photo Shoot Lady N’s vintage style studio portrait session

This studio shoot was in celebration of Lady N’s 30th birthday. For this occasion she requested to do something she said always dreams about. ‘I want to be Wonder Woman!’ On top of that, she wanted to do a few vintage / pinup styled photos.

This was an incredibly fun shoot, a big challenge and probably the shoot that has taken me the longest time to edit… EVER, but it was a more unusual and creative shoot than the usual things that come my way, so i took my time with the creative editing and went with it.

Surietha’s Pinup Maternity Photo Shoot | Maternity Photography

Pinup Maternity Photo Shoot JohannesburgMy dear friend Surietha is one of my favourite people to do a photo shoot for. She is always creative and open minded, and keen on something a little different and involving a little adventure. This was Surietha’s maternity shoot – she asked for a pinup style shoot, after seeing one of my recent pinup photo sessions we did at Pretville. We decided to do this shoot a little more local and close to home, so she wouldn’t have to travel as far as Harties so late in her pregnancy. She had her makeup done, and off we all went to an old diner in Muldersdrift for a bit of maternity pinup fun. 🙂

Special thanks to Bronwyn Stewart for assisting with this shoot, and Iliana Kirilova for makeup!

The FH Woman’s Day, Pin-Up Bazaar – Johannesburg Pin-Up Photographer

Fallen Hero’s hosted a wonderful, ladies only, event to celebrate Women’s Day, a national holiday in South Africa. Here’s a little history about Women’s day; On 9 August 1956, more than 50,000 women staged a march on the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against the proposed amendments to the Urban Areas Act (commonly known as the pass laws) of 1950. They left bundles of petitions containing more than 100 000 signatures at prime minister J.G. Strijdom’s office doors. Outside they stood silently for 30 minutes, many with their children on their backs. The women sang a protest song that was composed in honour of the occasion: Wathint’Abafazi Wathint’imbokodo!(Now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock.). In the 54 years since, the phrase (or its latest incarnation: “you strike a woman, you strike a rock“) has come to represent women’s courage and strength in South Africa.

The Women’s Day Pin-Up Bazaar  was a really awesome event  and was held at Fallen Heroes Tattoo studio in Parkhurst. The attendance was amazing, and all the ladies went out of their way to dress up proper Pin-Up style, they all looked gorgeous. Heart & Soul Photography, which will be launching Bella Dea Boudoir & Pin-Up photography brand very soon, was there with a themed photo booth set-up, complete with a funky rockabilly, African styled backdrop and loads of props. The ladies really had a ball playing dress up and practicing their best Pin-Up poses, which were picture perfect.  It was a really fantastic event and well done to The Fallen Hero’s team for putting it all together, until next year, keep rocking ladies.
