Mrs K contacted me some time ago to plan her very own Emotive Boudoir photo session, as a present to her fiance on their wedding day. Mrs K gave herself plenty of time to plan and prepare for her photo shoot, which is so important when you are hiring a professional photographer, especially for this type of shoot. I spend a great deal of time with my clients, answering their questions, and giving them ideas about how we can style the shoot to suit them. It is important to give yourself the time to prepare for this shoot, so you can have the full experience of an Emotive Boudoir shoot.
I love to use the different spaces in a person’s home. You will be surprised what you can do with a simple red rug, a set of stairs in a hallway and even just a bedroom. I also aim to use as many props as possible that are relevant to my clients and can usually be sourced from their home. The aim for Mrs K’s shoot was to produce a variety of both soft and relaxed images, and strong and sexy images that capture exactly who she is as a woman and the interests that she shares with her fiance (now hubby). Mrs K totally rocked this shoot! We had the best day photographing at her home, music blaring, giggles and laughter filling the house, all while her fiance was out and about totally distracted for the day by his mates 🙂
Erin Bigg was the makeup artist and hair stylist on this shoot. Erin is so good at what she does! She is relaxed, professional and keen to pamper our clients as they are getting ready for the photo shoot. Mrs K’s nerves melted away as she looked in the mirror after Erin had worked her magic, and saw just how gorgeous she is!
Last week Mrs K picked up her gorgeous Portrait Suite, with an album and matted images inside, just in time for her wedding on the weekend. I am yet to hear what her hubby thought of his gift, as they are on their honeymoon at the moment, but I can be pretty much certain that he would have been ecstatic!!! Congratulations Mrs K!
WHERE WAS YOUR SHOOT DONE?
The shoot was held in our home. I think it made it a lot more personal and we were able to pick out different parts of the house on the spot. The trouble was getting my fiance out for the day!
WHAT WAS THE OVERALL THEME OR STYLE?
I wanted to have a bit of variety, which I think Louise captured brilliantly. We had a mixture of romantic, sexy and fun shots.
WHAT OUTFITS, SHOES AND JEWELLERY/ACCESSORIES DID YOU WEAR? ANY SUPPLIERS YOU WOULD RECOMMEND?
I used a variety of lingerie, outfits, shoes and jewellery that I have collected over the years. Hubby thought it was great cause he recognised most of them.
ANY PROPS AND WHERE DID YOU GET THEM?
We used lots of items just from around the house, Louise was great at picking out different items that we could use.
WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REASON FOR DOING THE SHOOT?
I wanted a special gift to give to my Hubby as a wedding surprise, my Maid of Honor dropped it off to him the night before the wedding. I also recently lost 17kg, it’s the best I have felt about myself in a very long time, so what better way to celebrate than getting glammed up and showing it off!
HOW DID THE SHOOT MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
It was so much fun and the end results were amazing. It was everything I wanted and more.
WHAT DID YOUR PARTNER THINK ABOUT THE PHOTOS?
He loved them!
WOULD YOU DO A SIMILAR TYPE OF SHOOT LIKE THIS AGAIN IN THE FUTURE WITH EMOTIVE IMAGES?
Absolutely! I would do it again in a heartbeat. Hopefully, Louise is going to do my trash the dress shoot soon!
WHAT WAS IT LIKE BEING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA DOING THIS TYPE OF SHOOT?
A very unique experience. It takes a little bit to warm up but once you get into the swing of things and relax it is so much fun.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST FAVOURITE PRODUCT THAT YOU PURCHASED FROM EMOTIVE IMAGES DURING YOUR ORDERING SESSION?
The beautiful box set with the album and individual photos.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT YOU WILL SAY ABOUT THESE PHOTOS IN 5 OR 10 YEARS TIME?
I wish I still looked like that!
WHAT SURPRISED YOU THE MOST ABOUT THIS PHOTO SHOOT?
How different angles made me look so different.
