BOUDOIR

boudoir shoot with Jolie Papilon, burlesque performer, London

You’ve always wanted to do a boudoir shoot, but you’re nervous about being photographed in your underwear by a stranger. Perhaps you’re waiting until you’ve lost a few more pounds. Or you’ve convinced yourself that boudoir shoots are only for women in their twenties and you’re too old, or not pretty enough, or it would be selfish to spend that amount of money on yourself. Does any/all of this sound familiar?

WHATEVER REASON YOU’VE BEEN PUTTING IT OFF FOR; THE TIME IS

NOW

Being photographed is such an empowering experience. I won’t deny it can be nerve wracking getting in front of camera for the first time, but with the right photographer, lots of friendly pre-shoot conversation, your favourite music playing in the background and plenty of posing guidance on set, those nerves will disappear within seconds. Boudoir photography gives you the opportunity to celebrate your body by creating beautiful, sophisticated and timeless images that will preserve those ‘wow, I look and feel incredible!’ memories for years to come. The privilege for me is that it’s in my power to make you feel empowered, confident, strong and sexy as hell; whether you want to mark a particular life milestone, reward a personal achievement or simply document your fabulous self in all your glory.

LET’S CREATE SOMETHING TOGETHER THAT MAKES YOU FEEL

EPIC

One of the main reasons people come to me for boudoir photography is for my signature style of realistic editing. Drawing on my years of expertise as both a photographer AND professional retoucher – (thats right, you can read all about my work with Adobe and Wacom here) – I want you to look and feel like you on your very best day; because let’s be honest, no one else does a better a job of being you than you! No over-edited skin or photoshop surgery goes on over here, we’ll focus on getting it right in camera, with comfortable lingerie that flatters your figure and perfect posing to accentuate your best bits, combined with flawless lighting skills and lots of attention to detail. When you look at the un-edited proofs to choose your favourites for editing, you’ll feel amazing knowing thats really YOU in that photo. Your body is incredible and you really do look that good in real life!

Clothes on or clothes off, everyone has a different reason for wanting to be photographed. No two people are the same, and it’s really important to me that you’re offered a completely bespoke package to reflect that. You won’t be limited by a number of sets or poses, giving you the freedom to get as creative with your shoot and reflect your unique personality. I want to leave you with images you’re going to obsess over and use as a constant reminder of exactly who you are, and why you are proud to be you. Why? Because one of the most important processes in my journey to body confidence and self-acceptance was opening myself up to the concept of being photographed and existing in photos. The best part of having your photograph taken is seeing the beauty that another person finds in you – and I want you to have that uplifting and empowering experience too.

THESE IMAGES ARE A CELEBRATION OF

YOU

So how does it all work? Well first, we’ll choose a date that works for you, and once you’ve signed your contract and paid the booking fee, we’ll book you in for a pre-shoot consultation via Skype, FaceTime or standard phone call, whichever you prefer. This is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other and chat about any ideas you may have for your shoot. You will also get a free digital download of my Welcome Pack, a 24 page guide packed to the brim with lots of helpful tips and advice on how to prepare for your shoot – from beauty tips to a packing checklist. It also includes a list of my favourite lingerie brands to suit every budget.

The shoot will take place in a location of your choosing. This is one of my favourite features of my boudoir package, giving you complete freedom to control where your shoot takes place and allowing us to create you something completely bespoke rather than limiting you to specific sets or poses. Some clients opt to shoot in their home, others choose a fancy hotel and plan a full night out on the town afterwards with their hair and make up! Clients also have the option to upgrade their package to shoot in my Art Deco inspired boudoir should they wish. The choice is completely up to you!

On arrival, we’ll get you settled into hair and make up with one of my resident professional stylists for the full makeover experience. Its important to me that you look like you on your very best day, so you’ll spend about 90 minutes being pampered and made to feel like a queen. I’ll pop on some music, we’ll have a good chat and before you know it, you’ll be slipping into something glamorous ready for you moment in the spotlight!

The shoot itself is quite a physical process – those pin up poses require some core strength(!) – so we’ll aim to shoot for about 60-90 minutes, giving you plenty of time for an outfit change, or even two! Working from your natural body movements and nuances, I’ll guide you into poses that flatter your figure, enhancing your curves whilst still reflecting your personality. We’ll put on some of your favourite music, have a dance between poses and have lots of fun, making this an experience you’ll remember forever.

After your shoot, you’ll receive access to your very own private, password protected gallery, which will include proof images of your best shots from your boudoir photoshoot. There’s usually a choice of about 50 images in a wide range of poses, from which you’ll be able to choose your favourite images to be edited in my signature style and sent to you in high resolution on a Tigz Rice branded USB stick in a beautiful presentation box. And yes, if you decide at any point you want to upgrade your package to include more images, you are absolutely welcome to!

TIME TO GET CAMERA

READY

It is easy for me to tell you why I think you should invest in me for your boudoir shoot, but we both know images speak louder than words. With that in mind, make sure you delve into my portfolio, where you can find real life examples of client shoots; or read a few of my interviews with clients talking about why they came in for a shoot and their fantastic experiences in front of my camera. You might even want to check out the kind words on my testimonials page.

FAQs

fashion inspired boudoir shoot with Didi Derreire, burlesque performer
HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO REVEAL?

Clothes on or clothes off, everyone has a different reason for wanting to be photographed. No two people are the same, and it’s really important to me that you’re offered a completely personalised package to reflect that. You can dare to bare as much or as little as you like, safe in the knowledge that you also have complete control over the privacy of your images as well.

CAN YOU HELP WITH POSING?

Of course! Whether you’re new to modelling or a seasoned professional, on the day I’ll be there to guide you into the most flattering poses, making sure only your best angles are captured on camera. We’ll put your favourite music on, laugh lots and genuinely have a brilliant day!

DO YOU PROVIDE LINGERIE?

For hygiene reasons, lingerie is not provided for your shoot. However, it does create the perfect excuse to treat yourself to something brand new for your wardrobe! As part of the Welcome Pack you will receive with your booking confirmation, I include a handy list of all my favourite brands to help you find the perfect outfit for your shoot.

WILL YOU KEEP MY IMAGES PRIVATE?

You can dare to bare as much or as little as you like in the knowledge that you are in complete control of your images. I will always seek express written permission from you before any photos are published, however if you’d prefer to keep them for your eyes only, they can be our little secret!

I HEARD YOU OFFER AN EQUITY DISCOUNT?

Yes! Now in my ninth year of working with the burlesque, cabaret, circus and acting communities, I’ve been privileged to photograph some of the most talented and awe-inspiring humans on the planet and build a portfolio that I couldn’t be prouder of. You guys rock and, as a thank you for so many years of support, I’m really excited to offer a mid-week portfolio package, designed exclusively for Equity registered performers to make keeping your portfolio and promo images up to date just that little bit easier.

Discounted shoots will be available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, keeping your weekends free for those important gig bookings. Each shoot will be completely bespoke to your needs, giving you the freedom to get as creative with your shoot as your want. For more information and to make a booking, pop me an email via the form on the Contact Page. I can’t wait to hear from you!

WHEN DO BOUDOIR SHOOTS TAKE PLACE?

Boudoir photography sessions are available Tuesday to Saturday. My diary books up pretty fast, so it’s best to book a month or two in advance if possible. If you have a specific date in mind for your shoot, or you need your images by a certain date, please let me know at time of booking so I can do my best to accommodate you.

I'M NOT A MODEL, WILL YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH ME?

Of course, absolutely everyone who identifies as female is welcome in front of my camera. I can’t wait to photograph you!
