I’ve talked a lot on this blog about how the boudoir, pin-up and burlesque communities are awesome; with a handful of my clients over the last decade becoming close friends. Every once in a while though, it’s the other way around, with one of my close friends taking the plunge and stepping into my world of boudoir, lingerie and burlesque photography. One such friend is Emily, who popped in last summer for her bridal boudoir shoot. Emily and I have only known each other for a few years, but yet I also feel like I’ve known her forever. She is an absolute inspiration of a woman and I’m so pleased to be featuring her on the blog today along with some of the images from her shoot…

What’s the most interesting thing about you that the internet doesn’t know about you yet?  Erm, I’m not really very interesting, but a fun fact is that I coordinated all the cheerleading during the half time entertainment at the London 2012 Olympics (mainly the handball and basketball events) [Editors note: This is TOTALLY interesting! Also I’ve known Emily for years and didn’t know this about her!]

Tell us about one of the outfits you wore for your shoot – why do you love it? The black sheer bodysuit, shows off my legs and bum really well. I worked hard in the gym to say that!

Describe your shoot experience? It was so much fun, I felt completely relaxed all the way through and wish I could do it again.  I loved my hair and make up and felt like a movie star all day!
