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.
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!’
