Today’s gorgeous boudoir photo of the day is the gorgeous Lizzie who we photographed as part of the Celebrity Next Door Project with All for Mary. We wanted to create some gorgeous portraits that gave the illusion of nudity that really showcased Lizzie’s gorgeous tattoos. This is one of my favourite photographs as I love the contrast of the ink when its converted to black and white and I just love her expression.

Confetti. Oh how I love confetti!! Sadly, it is incredibly hard to buy now, so when it is at weddings, I am oh so excited! I have a great supply in the studio that I use for my boudoir sessions, which is always incredibly messy but oh so much fun. Ash and Sarah decided to have eco confetti at their wedding which we used for the group shots, but one of the incredibly cheeky guests, decided to hang on to their packet of confetti and surprise Ash with a sprinkling of confetti. How good is his reaction! The shot on the left is from my perspective and the shot on the right is from Kyle my second shooters, perspective. This is one of the main reasons why I love having a second shooter on wedding days – one moment, two perspectives.

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful country wedding of Brady and Kerryn. It was such a beautiful day and we had the most beautiful weather. Kerryn looked stunning in her gorgeous gown and Brady looked very handsome in his suit. We had so much fun photographing the day, and the bridal party really got into all of the photos after a beautiful luncheon. So here is a little slideshow showcasing some of the beautiful photographs from the day.

 

Earlier this year I had the gorgeous Cassie in the studio for her boudoir session. Cassie was so much fun to photograph. She is a medic in the army, and a good old country girl, so we had so many interesting conversations and so much fun just being girly for the morning. Here is Cassie’s boudoir experience:

About You
1. Describe yourself in 3 words
Clumsy, animal lover, emotional

I am, and feel much older than my years, I grew up on a farm and always got and still do get around in my tracky dacks, I’m a closet girly girl – so far back in the closet infact that I’m in Narnia.

3. Describe 3 things you wanted your boudoir session to represent
I wanted my boudoir session to represent that a rough and tough country girl who works in the army isn’t necessarily plain, ordinary, ungirly, unglamorous or in the slightest a “Bulldike”. I wanted it to represent that women can be sexy, beautiful, classy and raunchy all in one. And I also wanted it to represent me coming to terms with my insecurities and accepting myself for the way I am.

4. How do you feel about your body?
I mostly feel pretty good about my body. I have my occasional insecure moments but these are overcome knowing that I am healthy. Mostly…. I exercise, and I think, ” Hey, if I could have a body like this at eighty, I’d be a pretty happy lady.” Regardless of the fact that at that point in time I’m not enjoying the way my tummy looks or the stretch marks on my thighs, but I’m coming to terms with it.

5. What is your go-to item when you want to feel absolutely gorgeous?
Hmmm, go to item when I want to feel gorgeous….. Maybe I have two, Skinny jeans and hair curler.

6. What is your best tip for feeling beautiful?
Best tip for feeling beautiful? It’s easier said than done but, you have to learn to love and accept yourself for the person you are and for your body and the way it looks. My mum always said that until you can learn to love yourself, how can you expect others to? On the physical side I do enjoy a facial.

7. What does confidence mean to you?
Confidence to me means sticking by your beliefs and telling people to their face”the way it is” so to speak, or honesty rather, which occassionally gets me in trouble, but hey, I don’t like to beat around the bush.

The Experience
1. Why did you book a boudoir session with Nicole Barralet Photography?
I booked a session because my partner and I have currently been in a long distance relationship for three years now due to our work commitments and I wanted him to have some nice photos of me instead of cheesy selfies.

2. What does the term “boudoir photography” mean to you?
Boudoir photography to me means classy well taken photos of ladies in their lingerie. Also the experience that comes from getting almost down to the nuddy infront of someone you don’t even know, well that’s something you must try for yourself:)

3. How did you find the experience of being photographed by Nicole?
I found the experience with Nicole was amazing. I’ve never met her in my life yet we spoke like we’d always known eachother. It didn’t even feel like a photo shoot let alone one in my lingerie because I was just so comfortable with her. It was fun and entertaining and through our conversation during the shoot Nicole managed to get some pretty awesome pictures and facial expressions.

2015-07-02_00274. If you did the shoot as a gift, how did you boyfriend react to the gift?
My boyfriend absolutely loved it:)and was shocked to see my transformation, but it was very very well received.

5. Has the experience of doing a boudoir session helped you feel more confident, more empowered, sexy and comfortable with being a woman?
The shoot definitely helped me feel more confident and at peace with the way I am
