Pillow talk – Boudoir Photography by Johannesburg photographer

5 Apr

Every woman has this desire to look glamorous and sexy, all while maintaining her class and sophistication, and lets face it – it’s an awesome confidence booster.

When you immortalize that radiant seduction in photos – you have a constant reminder of the powerhouse beauty that you are and what better setting than the one place in your house where you aren’t just the mom or just the wife?

Boudoir: is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. Emphasis on the lady.

Commonly boudoir or pin up shoots have been categorized as risqué or tastelessly erotic – bordering on pornography perhaps – but this is not the case at all.  It is timeless and captures the intimate beauty of a woman, man or couple in a setting they themselves are comfortable with.

Growing in popularity, the idea of contemporary boudoir photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of a glamorous looking and confident feeling person partly clothed or in lingerie.

Nudity is more often implied than explicit – leaving much to the imagination of your significant other and maintaining the grace; and as mentioned sophistication of being a lady.

Commercially the boudoir or pin up shoot is marketed for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. A taste of things to come if you will.

Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, maternity, or just to celebrate the beautiful woman in you.

Think Bettie Page, Mae West, Clara Bow and Jean Harlow – all photographed in boudoir styled shoots capturing their elegance and sensuality all in one photo.

Sweet Judy Garland and her Ruby Red slippers were immortalized in the form of a pin up shoot in the 1940’s and still she is a beloved silver screen icon.  Twiggy had her very own pin up shoot, waif frame and all. Cindy Crawford, Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot, the list is endless – all woman who have had their sensual beauty captured and all of whom have had their moment in the sun.

What is your excuse for not having your moment in the light?

MOM & SON VINTAGE SHOOT WITH TRAINS AND TRACKS – GAUTENG PHOTOGRAPHER

27 Mar

I asked my client, Cashe, to please write me a little something about her vintage mom and son, photo shoot experience. We did the shoot at Hermanstad train station in Pretoria and it was just the kind of shoot i have been wanting to do for so long now, neelesss to say I was a very happy Bron, its so aweosme to do a styled, creative shoot, gets the juices flowing, now bring on more of these shoots  universe!!!!

IN CASHE’S WORDS:

The suitcase with the money in it…

Just like every proud and doting mommy, I wanted to immortalize the little moments with my 5 year old before life happened and they slipped by.  It was fortunate that I had been given a gift of a family photo shoot and what better setting than at a steam train station in Pretoria? I wanted a vintage but not that vintage shoot and we pulled it off spectacularly!  When we arrived I was very nervous about the fact that I’d be in these photos as well but had reassurance from my Riley that I looked very pretty and Bron made it easy for me to feel comfortable as well…  Although that did take time.  The first few photos must have been a flop, but after a quick wardrobe adjustment I started feeling so much better and really got into the shoot.

Trying different poses, different settings, different backdrops, I didn’t want the shoot to end I was having so much fun and seeing my little guy in his 1920’s gangster regalia was precious.  After the initial nerves and uncertainty I went from timid and awkward to confident and relaxed and that shows in our photos!

While we were capturing the last shots of the day with a massive storm brewing in the distance and wind going like crazy, I was thrilled  that mother nature had done her bit to create the mood for us, wind machine and all.

It was an epic day of laughter, excitement and fun and  I’ve already started planning our next stylized shoot that Bron will be capturing as only she can, now just to find another outstanding venue like the last!
