A fun little water boudoir photoshoot in Pretoria

A fun little water boudoir photoshoot in Pretoria. Maryke booked me during lock down to help support me, we all know lockdown was terrible for small businesses and photographers really struggled without being able to photograph people.

It wasn’t just the restrictions but fear for my own health that had me postpone my shoots, but postponed shoots also means very little income during the lockdown.

I am forever grateful for clients like Maryke who continued to support me on one of my specials.

Maryke and I came up with this awesome idea to do a charcoal water photoshoot with red roses. We couldn’t find the roses so we settled for daisies.

We used Blue Diamond Boutique Hotel for the photoshoot, their rooms are stunning and their bathrooms are perfect for what we wanted to achieve. Have a look at booking them if you are keen for a quick getaway that is not too far from the city.

Maryke was such a pleasure to work with, even dunking her head under the water to get that perfect shot.

At the end we decided to get a funky/scary shot in.

Kim’s fabulous boudoir shoot

Kim’s fabulous boudoir shoot.

I have been wanting to shoot with Kim for a while nowso when the time came around I was so excited to be doing the shoot.

This shoot is particularly special because it was done at a venue I had never tried before and I am BLOWN away with what magic it provided.

The venue is in Pretoria , Rooihuiskraal to be exact and it is called Ivory and Alabaster. It is right above a stunning dress maker called The Maiden .

Kim is a stunning plus size lady who owns her body. She is a dream to photograph, and like most clients, got warmed up after the first few photographs.

This is what Kim had to say about her shoot:

“I honestly can’t believe that’s me and that I LOVE the way I look. Normally with boudoirs etc I try and hide my stomach and some bits I don’t like etc with poses and so. I love every single one of those. I love every single one of the photos and poses everything!!!”

You are very welcome Kim, I live for these comments and feedback. I really do.

Boudoirs are my everything next to my kids and my goofy husband.

Carla’s breathtaking boudoir

Carla is a photographer herself and came with so many stunning ideas – she really pushed my photography limits 🙂

I lit our fireplace and tried to get some winter warmer photos with Carla, her inspiration for her shoot was a typical warm, comfortable day at home in slippers and pajamas.

Salome’s super hot Boudoir on a chilly rainy day

Once again I had the privilege of photographing my make up artist (Salome from Pink Hotness Beauty Boutique) and the weather just TOTALLY played along.

The softness the rain brought, the hotness Salome brought. The windows, the venue. All were just a PERFECT fit. I absolutely adored this boudoir, and as a result I have changed my style to a darker moodier boudoir.

Lindy and Johan {Silver Sixpence} Beautiful Dullstroom wedding

I was fortunate enough to be Yolandi’s right hand at this amazing wedding.

Lindy and Johan got married on a beautiful summer’s day in December at one of my favourite wedding venues Silver Sixpence.
The amount of love between these two is contagious, a love like theirs will last until the end of time. I don’t often cry at weddings but I caught myself shedding a tear or two with theirs.
