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.

A small collection from some of my favourite boudoir shoots that I’ve done recently. I absolutely love my ‘job’. That amazing feeling when a client sees their images for the first time, and they look at you and say, “OMG, Is that really me? I can’t believe how beautiful I am!” Yes! That is you, and you are beautiful… you just needed to be reminded of that, we all do. Phenomenal women…that’s who we are.

This is beautiful Lady T, she is in her 40’s, a mother and has been married for 10 years. She wanted to give her husband an unforgettable gift, something very special for their 10th wedding anniversary, so she decided to do a boudoir shoot.
It was something she has always wanted to do, not just purely as a gift for her hubby, but also for herself. She was a little nervous and shy in the beginning, as is the case with most ladies, when doing a boudoir shoot, but she was also very excited, and very quickly found her groove. Lady T absolutely loved the experience and was over the moon with her gorgeous photos, which she presented to hubby in a hand stitched leather album. Hubby loved his gift, naturally.

We did Lady C’s anniversary boudoir shoot in August, after many months of planning. Lady C was very nervous, but we met beforehand and discussed all our ideas, I could she was so much more relaxed after that meeting. On the day of her shoot, she arrived with her sister and a good friend. I think she probably thought she would need the moral support, although nervous in the beginning, she rocked her boudoir shoot, and loved the experience. Hubby is so going to LOVE his anniversary gift, after all he has one smoking hot wife.

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.
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?

This boudoir photo shoot was one of my early boudoir photoshoots, but to date still ranks up there with my favourites. It is such a pleasure to photograph a beauiful lady in a beautiful place – a beautiful lady that knows exactly how to pose i might add! Lady R ‘borrowed’ a relatives mansion (for lack of a better word) – for this shoot and it was an absolutely divine setting for a boudoir session. We moved through the entire house, making use of pretty much every room and reception area in the house, finishing off at the pool deck outside at sunset!

I met with the Lovely Cashe to do her shoot, about a week before Paul’s birthday, this was a surprise birthday gift for her boyfriend, Paul, one he would never forget. Cashe absolutely loved every second of her shoot, and said she would be doing this every year as a reminder that she is not just a mom but a woman, a beautiful woman. We did a Pin-Up styled boudoir photo shoot. Cashe loves Bettie Page and so do I, so we did few shots inspired by the phenomenal Bettie.
What follows is Cashe’s boudoir Photo Shoot in her own words:
‘It doesn’t matter how old you are, what size you are or how many hours a day you spend running after children – as a woman you sometimes forget that once upon a time you were an individual and a sexpot!
Admit it, even now you’re thinking that you would never get back to the sensational knock out that you were before babies, husbands and housework? (Or is that just me?) Well, I wanted to and even though I had some reservations – I did something that woke up my Inner Goddess!
It’s no secret that I love pin up’s and all things vintage, so it was only fitting that when I decided to do the unthinkable that I went with that genre. I had the hair and make up done, got out the lingerie and had my very own Boudoir Pin Up Shoot done with the incredible Bronwyn Stewart from Heart & Soul Photography in Johannesburg.
Bettie Page was a huge influence for me during the shoot and I was very fortunate that Bronwyn understood that and helped bring her out through me. This was initially done as a gift for my boyfriend for his birthday, but it ended up being a way for me to supercharge my confidence!
Needless to say, I wish I could look the way I did on the day all the time but alas, I cannot operate false lashes. It has re-established a love for lipstick and I am wearing the cat eye make up more often now. The key to being a sultry pin-up mom is remembering that you are a woman first and all the rest thereafter.
So ladies, if you are in the Johannesburg area looking for an amazing photographer who will turn you into the goddess you’re hiding, look up Bronwyn Stewart from Heart & Soul Photography!’
