Lady G’s French Vintage Boudoir Shoot- Johannesburg Boudoir Photographer

I did this wonderful boudoir shoot a little while ago at Lady G’s house.  It had a very French boho, vintage feel to it and Lady G rocked it.  She didn’t have loads of lingerie, just three well chosen pieces, so there again,ladies, you don’t need to fork out loads of cash, to do your boudoir shoot, just few really beautiful pieces, that make you feel like a goddess and that fit you really well, that’s rather important, that it fits well and flatters your body shape.

Then You also really don’t need  a fancy house to do your shoot in, Lady G, lives in a townhouse complex, and we just made it work.  This is one of my all time favourite  boudoir sessions.

The Lovely Trio Pin-Up Shoot | Miss Oh, Bronwyn & Cashe | Johannesburg PinUp Photographer

I recently had the absolute pleasure of photographing three very gorgeous woman, Pin-Up style,  in a most stunning lingerie boutique situated on 44 Stanley in Johannesburg, South Africa.  It was a day of stunning bodies, all different shapes and just celebrating their beauty as women. These are my favourite type of shoots, for many reasons.

I asked Cashe ( Bettie Flash) to write a little insert  from her point of view, on what this Pin-Up photo shoot meant to her, what follows are her words:

Who said three’s a crowd?

I often Google pictures of the gorgeous Pin-Up and burlesque ladies from way back when, and more often than not there are very few where the gorgeous ladies are together.

So when I was asked to participate in a trio pin up shoot, I jumped (very gracefully naturally) at the chance.  It was a lot easier to agree to a trio shoot when the fabulous burlesque performer; Oh Miss Oh wanted in on the action as well.  As always; the incredible Bronwyn Stewart was on hand to work her photographic magic on three very different ladies crammed into one awesome lingerie shop in Milpark.

The setting was perfect, we were using Mechant & Gentil as a location, and there is really something about being surrounded by stunning lingerie that brings out the sensual goddess within, hair and make-up done by a professional also helps!

When you are being photographed with two other gorgeous women; two women you haven’t actually met in person before; there is a certain nervousness that takes over that you cannot let show on the photos.  Fortunately Bronwyn Stewart is a master at helping her models feel at ease, it is very easy to feel so comfortable wearing very little when Bronwyn is behind a camera; she has a way with words, poses and energy that allows a girl with curves to feel like the sexiest creature in the room.  And there were three of us.

With myself, Miss Oh and Bronwyn Ruth Williams made up and ready for our shoot, it was surely a challenge to get all of us positioned and posed beautifully, while taking into consideration that each of us have very different body types and personalities.  Bronwyn S just has a way of bringing our personalities out without much effort either; all while having the artistic vision to capture some incredible shots of the three of us!

I absolutely adore the Pin-Up pictures of the three of us; the edgy and beautiful way that they were captured shows a group of ladies who have known each other for years; even though it was only for a few hours.

Bronwyn S allowed us to bring our ideas to the table and worked with what we had envisioned for the shoot in ways that neither of us could have imagined.  It made me wonder that if three almost strangers could produce photos of this nature, I could only imagine what a group of friends could produce. 

I am no professional model; I am definitely not a skinny girl and I am not the type of girl who will flaunt my mom curves, thanks to Bronwyn S though; I am very proud of my body and of any beautiful woman who is willing to flaunt her best side.  I have said it before and will say it again, I would definitely recommend a pin up shoot with Bronwyn Stewart – she is a lady who nails pin up poses to help you get into them; she knows exactly how to direct you into the most flattering positions and is more patient with her clients than most people I know.

So I would like to thank Bronwyn once again for helping me realize that I am more than just a mom; more than just a girlfriend or just an employee –  I am a woman and a pretty sassy one at that and without Bronwyn I wouldn’t have seen that at all!

Pillow talk – All about Boudoir Photography – Johannesburg Boudoir Photographer

Every woman has this desire to look glamorous and sexy, all while maintaining her class and sophistication, and lets face it – it’s an awesome confidence booster.

When you immortalize that radiant seduction in photos – you have a constant reminder of the powerhouse beauty that you are and what better setting than the one place in your house where you aren’t just the mom or just the wife?

Boudoir: is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. Emphasis on the lady.

Commonly boudoir or pin up shoots have been categorized as risqué or tastelessly erotic – bordering on pornography perhaps – but this is not the case at all.  It is timeless and captures the intimate beauty of a woman, man or couple in a setting they themselves are comfortable with.

Growing in popularity, the idea of contemporary boudoir photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of a glamorous looking and confident feeling person partly clothed or in lingerie.

Nudity is more often implied than explicit – leaving much to the imagination of your significant other and maintaining the grace; and as mentioned sophistication of being a lady.

Commercially the boudoir or pin up shoot is marketed for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. A taste of things to come if you will.

Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, maternity, or just to celebrate the beautiful woman in you.

Think Bettie Page, Mae West, Clara Bow and Jean Harlow – all photographed in boudoir styled shoots capturing their elegance and sensuality all in one photo.

Sweet Judy Garland and her Ruby Red slippers were immortalized in the form of a pin up shoot in the 1940’s and still she is a beloved silver screen icon.  Twiggy had her very own pin up shoot, waif frame and all. Cindy Crawford, Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot, the list is endless – all woman who have had their sensual beauty captured and all of whom have had their moment in the sun.

What is your excuse for not having your moment in the light?

Lady T’s Vintage Boudoir photo shoot – Johannesburg boudoir photographer

Lady T contacted me in February wanting to a boudoir shoot as a surprise gift for her boyfriend’s birthday present, I love that, what a fabulous gift to give your man and indeed yourself. The shoot was kept very hush, hush from Lady T’s boyfriend, as it was a surprise after all. We discussed various themes and finally decided to go with a vintage style boudoir photo shoot. I do so love me some vintage, so i was over the moon.

 We found the perfect venue, an old Victorian style house in Parktown complete with antiques and a most fabulous energy. The gracious owners were very accommodating which made the shoot even more enjoyable because of the very chilled environment and the complete privacy they afforded us.  Lady T is gorgeous and such a beautiful person, she was nervous in the beginning, as was to be expected, but we quickly put her at ease and kept the vibe very light-hearted and fun. She was however very open to all our ideas and trusted us completely which really made a huge difference, and oh my word, did she have the most gorgeous lingerie and so much of it to choose from, so much of loveliness.

We had an absolute ball. I am so ecstatic with pics from a stunning vintage boudoir shoot with a gorgeous lady. What is even more important is that Lady T  absolutely loves her pics.   I loved every minute of Lady T’s shoot from concept to shooting, to post production.  I really  love, love, love what I do.

Here are the pics from Lady T’s vintage boudoir shoot, I’m sure that you will love them as much as I do.

Thanks to my photography partner, Sigrun Wagner for being amazing every step of the way, your contribution is, as always invaluable, and highly appreciated.  Thanks to Iliana Kirilova for doing Lady T’s lovely make-up.
