What was in the bag?

A few days ago I posted this picture of myself with my mystery bag of goodies on loan from SJP Bridal. If you’ve been following my blog you’ll already have met “Bella” our little 50’s dress with a modern twist. Would it surprise you to know she wasn’t alone?! Yes, the lovely ladies at SJP…

This is the greatest show

I love it when a client comes to me and says I want to do a boudoir shoot on a theme. I’m a bit of a nerd, so as soon as there’s a hint of cosplay, my response is naturally going to be “YES!” Last week The Greatest Showman got a little boudoir makeover. I…

Long, are the Autumn nights

There’s something about long autumn nights that gets me very nostalgic. I know I’m not the only one. How often do you find yourself happily curling up on the couch? Pulling down a book from the shelves to read through? With me, it’s usually a classic, something I’ve read before. But the call of meeting…

Fashion Inspiration

One of the most popular questions I get asked (regardless of the type of shoot) is “What should I wear?”  I’ve touched on this before for my engagement couples in previous blogs (5 tips for your engagement shoot) but have never addressed the issue on my blog for boudoir.  Every client that comes for a…

10 images you need of your wedding

When I present my clients with their wedding photos there’s always that moment of excited nervousness and anticipation. The memories of that day flood over them, we have laughter, tears and then the statement. “I want all of them!!” And of course you can, but what if you only have a package that includes a limited amount…

A Bridesmaids duty.

Having been to a few weddings I would like to give a little helpful advice to those lucky ladies chosen to be a bridesmaid. Girls, you have been chosen by the bride because you represent either the family members or the best friends that the bride CAN NOT DO THIS WITHOUT. I put this statement in…

The Bridal Emergency Kit

To ensure you remain flawless on your wedding day you may like to consider a little Bridal emergency kit.  I have to admit I was not this organised at my wedding, but luckily my auntie thinks along these lines! Having thought about what a modern bride might like to pop in her emergency kit here are…

Angel of dawn

“I lift my head at the noiseless tread of the angel of dawn.” Last weekend I was restless. I know when I get like this the best thing for me to do is grab my camera and head out the door. Walk it off. The timing of the restlessness may make a few of you…

5 tips for your engagement shoot

When clients come to me for an engagement shoot they often want to mark the importance of the event with more than just selfies and iPhone images. It can be a wonderful time to document the spark of the wedding rather than having it overshadowed by all the preparations. Naturally, I get asked many questions from what…

The art of the tease

There are many props that any burlesque dancer owns and loves. The most iconic may well be the ostrich feather fan. Today, at the studio, I asked my beautiful friend and model Francesca to release her inner dancer and tease us with a little bit of the art of the fan dance. We hope you…

Summer Tease

We’ve had a lovely taste of fine weather this week, and although we’re now back to my favorite weather (yes, I do love the rain) the sun did make me feel nostalgic for the summer weddings. Having a good old look back through my work I thought I’d share some of Pete and Anna’s wedding…

Indulge your curiosity

  Have you been wondering what a boudoir shoot would be like? Many of my clients are unsure what to expect when they book their consultation with me. What they all seem to find is a very friendly, short and enthusiastic woman who, with the generous slice of homemade cake, puts them at ease and explains what…
