“Beauty is when you can appreciate yourself. When you love yourself, that’s when you’re most beautiful.” Zoe Kravits
I love to create sensual, feminine and authentic boudoir images that celebrate a woman's beauty.
As every woman has different perceptions of what beauty and sensuality means to her, my boudoir photo shoots are each unique – customised to a client’s vision, combined with my artisty. They aim to bring out a woman’s spirit, her inner and outer beauty as well as promoting feelings of confidence and empowerment.
With a style-conscious approach and attention to detail, I take great pride in planning so that your boudoir shoot becomes an unforgettable experience.
I love helping my clients style a photo shoot with different looks – with beautiful lingerie, a variety of accessories and a choice of suitable locations, as they all play an essential role in staging and fulfilling her own unique vision.
I particularly like to photograph ‘real’ women, who may have never posed in front of a camera and who often have insecurities about their bodies and their looks, but who have one thing in common – a desire to have beautiful, sensual photography for themselves or for their partner.
It may be that you are a bride who wishes to surprise your husband-to-be with a romantic gift, or you may want to celebrate an important birthday, a wedding anniversary, re-invent yourself after a divorce, or maybe you’re in need of a confidence boost to recapture your sexiness and sensuality, which has been consumed by motherhood. Regardless of your motivations, I aim for my boudoir sessions to be a fun, transformative experience which will leave you feeling beautiful, confident, sexy and empowered.

Before the photo shoot, I will create a plan for your boudoir session.
The PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION is key to the success of the photo shoot, for getting to know me and learn more about my approach and style. Ideally, I would like to meet you in person or perhaps via skype. During the consultation we will discuss your motivations for the shoot, the look, the wardrobe and lingerie options and the style you are attracted to. Your personal comfort is my top priority.
We will also look at products you may be interested in purchasing and where you may envisage displaying the art work in your home, once it has been created.
You will be involved throughout the creative process and together we can create a mood board with ideas and styles for the shoot. I have also created a list of dos and don’ts that will help you to prepare for the photo shoot. This list is comprehensive and will answer all the questions you may have. Also check the FAQ section.
The PHOTO SHOOT will take place either at your home or at a location of your choice. A selection of boutique hotels are also available, to enhance your experience. The only additional person that will be present during the photo shoot will be my make-up artist, who will stay throughout the shoot to help with hair styling and make-up. Your hair and make-up session is a chance to unwind and it will last approximately 1.5 hours. The talent of a make-up artist lies not only with making you look beautiful but also primed for a photo shoot.
The ORDERING APPOINTMENT: Within three weeks of the photo shoot, I will show you your fully edited images, in the comfort of your home. This is when you will finalise your portrait order and we will be looking at suggested fine art album designs, wall art, framed and unframed prints, framing or contemporary acrylic mounts that will look best with your décor. To make the decision process easier, I use software that enables me to show you what your images, with the artwork of your choice, will look like in different spaces in your home, making it easier for you to make a final decision. Your order will be delivered within three to four weeks. Please refer to Boudoir Prices for more information and options.
