With the African wind blowing...

“There’s a wild wild whisper blowing in the wind...calling out my name like a long lost friend”

Maybe "boudoir" is not the right word at all...???

Wednesday, 26 March 2014

Boudoir for me is about showing as little or as much as you would like to. It could even mean you all cozied up in a full length coat J it’s about celebrating beauty and art and drawing inspiration from everything that you find beautiful, special and a little seductive.
My style is inspired by fine art and a bit of fashion and I find inspiration in magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and even in beautiful bridal magazines. I love to envision the hair, makeup and that little smile that every woman keeps hidden away! Each photo shoot is a collaboration between myself and the client (read: YOU!)where we include the things she loves (as well as anything she might only have dreamt about) to express her inherent beauty and make her the star. I work to create images that moves her (and me) and hopefully anyone who ever picks up the photos. It must stir emotion, create a fantasy or even a legend.
Our “boudoir” photographs are  usually taken in a beautiful setting, be it a beautiful sunset or against the backdrop of an abandoned warehouse or in a luxurious boutique hotel's garden or a stunning Victorian bathtub...
We capture these beauties in light, surreal, gorgeous photographs instead of the cliche “whips and chains” kind of photos everyone imagine when they hear the big “B” word.  It should be spontaneous and fun and a way to celebrate yourself and your life.
We do not photograph for “little black books” hidden in the bottom drawer of your cupboard but rather photos that you would not want to stop showing off.

Summer lovin'

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

White on white, crystal chandeliers, delicate peony blooms and lots of lace and sequins…. this is what you see when you hear weddings… then there is the meter upon meter of tulle, the smell of vanilla cake and oh yes, all the love love love in the air…..not to mention the slightly giddy groom and the gorgeous blushing bride!
 Is this you? Has the love bug bitten you too and are you strolling down the aisle in 2014? All the wedding enquiries and all the beautiful love stories this summer is making us fall in love all over again!

The Brutality of dance

Monday, 17 March 2014

Are you the woman whose life personifies the Brutality of dance? The ethereal beauty laced together with the drama and the literal blood,sweat and tears. Are you the mother or the wife who has to balance the dirty soles of “life’s” slippers with the soft sweet pink of your dreams?

For YOU I am thinking of some soft, subtle photographs.... a day filled with endless ribbons and the softest cashmere, lots of lace and chiffon...

Come spend a day and let us create an album of all those marshmallow dreams...
