Today I have a very special boudoir shoot to share with you. Earlier this year, Kate came to the end of a long period of surgery and wanted to mark it with something significant, so she booked in for a boudoir session. I know how personal a boudoir shoot can be, so I’m extremely grateful that she has allowed me to share some of her images. Kate also very kindly shared some of her thoughts with me about the shoot.

Natalie and I have been working together on boudoir shoots for a year now. She does the hair and make-up of each client making sure they get fully pampered before their photoshoot. She also helps to calm any last minute nerves that may arise before getting in front of the camera.
But what happens when you’re doing your own hair and make-up and have last minute nerves of your own……?
After telling so many women that having a boudoir shoot is such an amazing experience, a couple of weeks ago Natalie decided it was about time to put her money where her mouth is and get in front of the camera….
For me, it was something I’d done many times before, but for Natalie, it was something bigger. We chatted and giggled as friends do, especially when I nearly fell off her water bed! But it wasn’t until I read Natalie’s blog post about the whole experience that I got a real insight into what thoughts actually arise before and after a boudoir shoot….
If you’d like a boudoir shoot like Natalie had, then don’t be shy – get in touch! Please don’t worry about your images being shared, that only happens if you consent to them being used.
Here are some shots from the day, once you’ve looked through them please head over to Natalie’s blog and check out her thoughts on the whole experience….
Happy Monday! xFiled under: Boudoir, Photography, Weddings | Comments Off
There are many different reasons why women choose to have a boudoir shoot. For some it’s a gift for their partner, be it Valentine’s Day or their wedding day. For others, it’s about reaching a milestone in their life, recovering from an illness or celebrating a significant age. Then there are the women who have one just because they can……
Vic is Mum to five kids. Yep. Five. Not only that, but they’re aged 1,2,3,4 and 5! Talk about having her hands full! She is also full time carer to her two year old disabled daughter. Strong willed and feisty, 37 year old Vic got in front of the camera last month to have a boudoir shoot, and I have to say it was the rowdiest boudoir shoot I have ever done!
Hair and make-up was done by Natalie of Roberts-Steel Hairdressing and I’d like to thank Margo for being on hand to do touch ups throughout the shoot!
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Vic for letting me share some of her images with you all and Ferraris Country House for providing us with a room to use.
Whether you want a boudoir shoot for Valentine’s Day or an anniversary, or for something else, please don’t be shy….. Get in touch!!

Okay boys and girls. Listen up. Christmas is just around the corner and your wife / girlfriend / mistress / fiancée / boyfriend / husband, (please delete as appropriate) deserves an amazing present.
Yes, you could give them a fist full of cash, or another piece of jewellery, take them out for a night on the town or buy them some amazing lingerie.
Or you could buy them some amazing new lingerie and a gift certificate for a boudoir shoot, because the two compliment each other really well.
A boudoir shoot is one of the most liberating experiences you can have, and done tastefully, boudoir photography can create some amazing images for you both to treasure – which means everyone’s a winner!
Every client is different. Which means that every shoot is different. It’s tailored to meet each persons needs. Some clients prefer to start their shoot in some comfortable clothing, a bit like a lifestyle shoot, and other clients like to strip down to their undies and get cracking. By purchasing a gift certificate, you’re giving your partner the freedom of arranging their own shoot at a time that’s convenient to them. It also means I can chat to them to find out what they’re comfortable with.
Hair and make up will be professionally done by Natalie of Roberts Steel Hairdressing and you’ll also receive a complimentary bottle of wine to help you relax whilst you’re being pampered.
For further details or to purchase your gift certificate please get in touch.

There are many misconceptions about boudoir photography. When mentioned, a lot of people instantly think of glamour photography, along with a range of page 3 poses. There are also many other photographers with their own ideas about what boudoir photography is. For me, it’s about celebrating who you are – tastefully. Women choose to have boudoir shoots for many different reasons. For some, it’s a gift for their partner, be it Valentine’s Day or their wedding day. For others, it’s about reaching a milestone in their life or a certain age and wanting a reminder of how they once looked. Whatever the reason behind it, a boudoir shoot is a personal choice and tastefully done it can create some beautiful images to treasure.
Whether you want a boudoir shoot to celebrate just how damn gorgeous you are, you want to surprise your partner with something special, or you want to treat your partner to a photoshoot (it is nearly Valentine’s Day after all!), please get in touch. Hair and make up will be professionally done by Natalie of Roberts Steel Hairdressing and you’ll also receive a complimentary bottle of wine to help you relax whilst you’re being pampered.

Last week I headed over to Preston to shoot some business headshots for the team at Roberts Steel Hairdressing. We had a brew and a chat while all the girls ran round doing their hair and make-up preparing for their close up! It was all very relaxed – which is how it should feel when having your photo taken.
Business headshots are a fantastic way to help promote your business and make it more approachable. It gives potential clients the chance to see your team of friendly faces before they even pick up the phone to call you.
