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.

Nikita’s stunning boudoir

Nikita is a fun loving, vivacious, unicorn loving attorney – so we had a bit of fun with her photoshoot.

I loved the onesie that she brought with, boudoir isn’t always about being sexy – but sometimes we need to show you how gorgeous you are when you are just yourself in your pajamas.

Nicole’s stunning boudoir – Light and Airy

Nicole answered my model call and wanted me to try a light an airy feel with her boudoir (much like my original work). We played around with some of her favourite things like flowers and all things pretty.

She totally rocked her boudoir shoot with me, and I didn’t quite realise how much I missed shooting light and airy.

Emma and Giuliano’s summer engagement photoshoot

Emma and Giuliano have this amazing spark between them, I was lucky enough to catch it a few times on camera.

We started off with family photos, with such a tight knit family it turned into a super fun mini family photo shoot. By the time we we were finished with the photos we were melting from the heat. Hartebeespoort in the summer is smelting hot.

 

The venue, French Toast in Harties, was perfect for Emma and Giuliano’s quirky romance and gave us tons of places to get some stunning photos. They have a bridge full of locks that you can engrave and secure to the side – throw away the key and your names are together forever. Such a sweet sentiment, just like the real thing in Paris.

Waiting for Liam

Mariette and Charl are the cutest married couple. The photo shoot was full of laughs and jokes.

Mariette and I have been friends for 3 years now, we found out we were pregnant a month apart from each other. Their little boy was born exactly a month after our little angel. And he is just as gorgeous as his parents are.

This was the last shoot I did before going on maternity leave, it just took me a while to blog it. How absolutely stunning are these parents?

Domenique found me on a mommy Facebook page and suggested we do the photo shoot at the same place that they got married (Toadbury Hall). What a special idea! This venue had so many places that made GORGEOUS photos.

Domenique and Henry were up for trekking all around the place with me, luckily I am pregnant too so I knew when it was getting to far.  Have a look at their amazing photos we took last month:
