There seems to be far too many black and white photos on my website lately. Let’s change the mood a little bit, especially on Mother’s Day.

I am a bit obsessed with white and not surprisingly, pre-wedding shoots are one of my favourites. The soft natural lighting always resonates with white, which captures perfectly the essence of being a bride.

Happy mother’s day!

 

For the 6 years that I have been doing boudoir shoots, if I were to name one thing which my clients have in common is that they will more than often end the shoot with some semi nude shots.   Of course, some were more open to the idea, while others showed signs of hesitation when I suggested it at the beginning of each shoot (my pre-photoshoot cheat sheet only mentions all the outfits and props one needs to prepare and nothing about being nude in any way). But if my memory serves me right, all of them did in the end.  Why not, I always tell them, you are here doing a boudoir shoot, may be your first and last time, might as well!

This is one of the shots from a recent shoot.  Thanks for letting me post this up!

“Boudoir” is derived from French and it adds that much to the shoot when we mix it with a bit of Parisenne Flaire.

With the help of some props and Jo Jo’s professional make up skills, Viola! This already beautiful lady was certainly ready to take on Paris!

I can’t wait to finish touching up this black and white shoot.  Hopefully, they can be done by this lady’s birthday! Happy early birthday!!

Unfortunately, I don’t have the permission to display the photos.  Hopefully, next shoot!


 

It was unfortunate that the shoot was scheduled in the middle of the cold spell.  It was at most 4 degrees when I checked in! Even though the hotel did not have heat, this lovely lady was a good sport.  She (maybe it’s the dancer in her) radiates energy.  I was truly inspired by her positivity.  We ignored the cold air (on hindsight, we should have ordered some wine), had some good laughs about men, women, relationships.  She chose to do this to celebrate her 40th birthday and I hope she enjoyed the experience as much as I did!
