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 Pin up style Calendar was a surprise birthday gift for my client’s boyfriend and I was super excited about this project! The whole process of working up to this shoot and planning it was a lot of fun. We planned all the poses in the weeks leading up to the photoshoot. We chose actual Vintage Pinup Photos that had the look we wanted to replicate. We hired and bought some props, and were lucky enough for a local fashion designer Suzanne Heyns to loan us the wardrobe of vintage style outfits to make use of for the shoot.
The shoot was a total success, and the calendar gifted to Tannah’s partner in January, who i was very happy to hear, absolutely adored it!

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!’
