Hi! Welcome to my boudoir photography blog! :) I thought it would be best to start with how it all began; how I discovered boudoir photography, why I fell in love with it and what made me start my own adventure to offer an amazing experience to all women out there who wants to feel fabulous.
As far as I remember it all started with Twitter a few years ago when I started following professionals of the photography industry and came across The Boudoir Divas. 2 girls who own a boudoir photography studio in sunny San Diego, California. I checked their website and was blown away by the pictures. And when I saw that they run workshops as well I immediately started dreaming about how I could make my way to San Diego and learn it all. Of course I couldn't afford a trip to the U.S., nor paying for the workshop on top of that so I just kept dreaming and learning from what Kimberlee and Marissa were sharing online.
As a NYE resolution I promised to myself that I'll make my boudoir photography dreams happen - whatever it takes. My friend and I booked our flights to Vegas to attend - what was also another big plan of mine for a while - WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photography International). This event is an annual convention for photographers with tons of workshops and speakers, LOTS of inspiration and kick in the butt to push you further achieving goals in your photography business.
Shortly after booking everything for this trip The Boudoir Divas sent out a newsletter offering every girls dream: JAMES BOND INSPIRED BOUDOIR SHOOT IN VEGAS, IN A PENTHOUSE SUITE!! Ok, maybe it's not every girl's dream, but it hit the spot with me and without thinking I booked my spot to be photographed by Kimberlee and Marissa who I've read, seen, heard so much about and could have never imagined I will actually get the chance to be photographed by them. Ever.
Was I a little star struck to meet them in real life? Maybe a little. Ok. According to my friend, Janine (who's also an amazing photographer by the way!) I was as star struck as a girl can be. Was I feeling like I'm living the dream? Definitely! (The details of this shoot coming soon in another blog post. Bare with me :))
After an amazing week in Las Vegas, seeing and hearing a lot of photography goodness, I arrived back to sunny Sydney and started planning what I've been talking about FOREVER: yes, a boudoir portfolio shoot! 6 gorgeous ladies, 2 amazingly talented professionals, some extremely supportive friends and a whole lot of excitement later; I made more happen already than what I've dreamt of and I'm certainly ready to rock the World and make another countless women believe in their own, unique and shining beauty - just like The Divas did it to me.
Thank you for stopping by!
Stay beautiful x
