A Surprise Boudoir Shoot For Client Louise

May 12, 2021

Hello gorgeous! Hands up if you love surprises, because today I have the pleasure of introducing you to Louise, who’s partner booked her a surprise boudoir shoot with me as a gift during lockdown! Opting for the gift voucher approach, which gave Louise some time to mentally prepare for her virtual moment in the spotlight, this was one of those magical days where everything came together perfectly to create some beautiful images. If you’ve been thinking about giving the gift of a surprise boudoir shoot to someone special, read on, and find out how Louise’s partner pulled it off…

Occupation: Doctorate Scientist / Crafter

How would your best friend describe you? Open-minded, generous, adventurous, stubborn, gourmande (a French word for someone that loves tasty food) and always fashionably late!

Name three things that you always carry with you? Earphones (because I’m never without music), my phone and a smile.

What was the last book you read? Elana, by Pierre Bottero, a beautiful book about a free and strong woman in a fantasy world.

Do you remember how you originally found me? My boyfriend surprised me by offering me a photoshoot with you.

[TIGZ: I’ll actually expand on this a little because its the CUTEST story and I’m not sure how much Louise actually knows! Louise’s significant other reached out to me last October and booked her a surprise Virtual Boudoir Shoot e-voucher with me, which he also arranged for me to virtually hand-deliver as an extra little surprise (which I’m always happy to do, just as an FYI!), He also corresponded with me several times over the following days and weeks to arrange a fully compatible DSLR set up for Louise so she could have the absolute best quality photos possible – and if that wasn’t awesome enough, he also dressed up in a dapper gentleman’s suit for the occasion, which is one of Louise’s favourites outfits on him, so that they could both be well-attired for the day. Partners, take note: This is how you do boudoir surprises!]

What inspired you to book a surprise boudoir shoot? From Him: Tigzrice’s universe is a place where people can be who they are.

Who would play you in a movie of your life? Princess Leia (or Elana, but she is way less known)

Tell us about one of the outfits you wore for your shoot – why do you love it? My tiger pattern body always makes me feel like I can run the world! Like a dangerous woman…

Describe your shoot experience? Wonderful <3

What song gets you on the dancefloor? Jerusalem

What are you most proud of in your life so far? To have been able to stay myself even after all the people that wanted to change me

What is your top body confidence tip? The defects you see, only you can see. You’re beautiful.

What will your autobiography be called? Freedom Is Ours

If you could be a model for any brand, which brand would it be and why? Icebreaker, because it’s outdoors, sexy, hidden, and warm

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about booking a boudoir shoot of their own? You will feel so confident after and proud of yourself. Don’t hesitate anymore!

What exciting project are you working on right now? Nothing just yet, my studies are taking all my time…. But stay tuned!
