Julie | Boudoir | Brisbane | 23rd November 2014
A few months back I had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous Julie for her boudoir session. She wanted to give her husband a 50th Birthday present he would never forget!! And he loved it!! It was also a great opportunity for me to show Julie how gorgeous she is both inside and out and to help her with her confidence! This is why I love photographing boudoir sessions!! We should all embrace our imperfections and celebrate who we are! Here is Julie’s boudoir experience.
Describe yourself in 3 words:

Describe 3 things you wanted your boudoir session to represent:

Not so keen on my body, full of scars and stretch marks.
What is your go-to item when you want to feel absolutely gorgeous?
Dolce & Gabbana Light blue perfume
What is your best tip for feeling beautiful?

Not to be a shamed of yourself and not to really care what others think of you.
Why did you book a boudoir session with Nicole Barralet Photography?
To do something out of the ordinary.
What does the term “boudoir photography” mean to you?
Up close and Personal
How did you find the experience of being photographed by Nicole?
I was very relaxed and a lot of fun.
How did your husband react to his gift?
It was a 50th birthday gift for my Husband. His reaction was WOW, wow you have certainly stepped out of your comfort zone. I feel very much loved. You are amazing.
Has the experience of doing a boudoir session helped you feel more confident, more empowered, sexy and comfortable with being a woman?
My experience has assisted with my low self image, I am a attractive person with an amazing body for a unfit almost 50yr old.
Thank you Julie for an amazing boudoir session and I am so proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone and doing a shoot. I am truly happy that you are feeling more confident and empowered as a gorgeous almost 50 year old!!!
I love a good wet wedding, especially when the bride and groom get into it!! Nothing like a pair of fun gumboots to lighten the mood of a rainy day!
Cathy | The Celebrity Next Door Project | Brisbane | 19th November 2014
A little while ago I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the lovely Cathy for the November Celebrity Next Door Project for All for Mary. Cathy was chosen by Beth to be the next Celebrity Next Door as an example of a wife, mother and business owner who wears many hats and juggles life always with a smile on her face. Beth wrote a beautiful blog about Cathy and why she was chosen which you can view here.
Photographing Cathy was lots of fun. The idea behind her shoot was to capture her beautiful vibrant personality, gorgeous smile and showcase her talents in sewing and as a pattern maker. Cathy was wonderful in front of the camera. We laughed, we played and we got silly. Some of my favourite photographs from the session where the gorgeous giggles and silly expressions she was making. I love how she is so expressive not only through her expressions but also the clothes she chose for the shoot. I think we had a beautiful insight into this gorgeous woman. Here are some of my favourite photographs from the shoot.
And here is Cathy’s fun 9up.
