A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Katie from Mums of Brisbane. She wanted to do a Personal Branding session to update her headshots for her new website Mums of Brisbane but also include the family and some activities that they do together. So I headed over to Katie’s house initally for some headshots and some photos in and around the house, before we headed to Southbank for a few more family portraits and activities.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous baby announcement series of photographs for one of my lovely Hair & Makeup Artist’s Melissa. She is expecting baby number three and wanted to do something fun to tell everyone. Do you think the kids are excited?

Last week I had the pleasure of heading to Showroom in Brisbane CBD for a fabulous lunch chat with Those Two Girls as part of one of the many League of Extraordinary Women events. Those Two Girls are made up of Lise and Sarah and you may of heard them on Saturday morning radio on Hit105.

The event was held in Brisbane at Showroom, a gorgeous retail and event space in the heart of the CBD. As a photographer I was totally crushing on the white walls and gorgeous light streaming through those big beautiful windows.

We had a wonderful turnout for this event with over 75 people attending.

We were able to order these yummy lunch packs from Yes, Joy to nibble on while we listened to Those Two Girls.

Sarah and Lise were super honest, entertaining and just a joy to listen to. It was like just hanging out with two best friends over coffee. They share their story, how they saw a niche in the market and have consistently worked together towards their dreams. They shared how they set boundaries and expectations very early on in their relationship with each other and their work and how working together has been one of the best things that they have ever done. And it shows. I love the photo below as it really just sums them up perfectly!

And of course it isn’t an event without a selfie with the photographer.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of creating a bridal boudoir session for the gorgeous Miss P. She wanted to give her hubby to be a cheeky little smile on the morning of her wedding. So here is her boudoir experience!

About You

1. Describe yourself in 3 words
Opinionated, Different, Logical

2. Describe 3 things people might not know about you
I am an ambivert (an extrovert and introvert at different times and circumstances), I hate the sound of creasing paper and one of my guilty pleasures is trashy reality tv.

3. Describe 3 things you wanted your boudoir session to represent
That a curvy plus size woman like me can also be sexy, the colour and quirkiness of my personality and that you can be comfortable in your own skin.

4. How do you feel about your body?
I have good and bad days like everyone with their body, but I feel I am unique and I like to celebrate that.

5. What is your go-to item when you want to feel absolutely gorgeous?
I will take extra time in picking my outfit and accessories and my makeup.  Also a tutu never hurts

6. What is your best tip for feeling beautiful?
Just be yourself and smile

7. What does confidence mean to you?
Loving who you are, good and bad and not giving a damn what anyone else thinks.  You do not need permission from anyone else to be who you are.

The Experience

1. Why did you book a boudoir session with Nicole Barralet Photography?
I wanted to get a unique gift for my husband to be for our wedding day.  I always wanted to do a boudoir shoot, so this was the perfect excuse for me.

2. What does the term “boudoir photography” mean to you?
Celebrating being a woman and what makes you unique.

3. How did you find the experience of being photographed by Nicole?
The shoot was amazing.  Nicole makes you feel so comfortable and makes the experience fun.

4. If you did the shoot as a gift, how did your husband react to the gift?  He loved it!

5. Has the experience of doing a boudoir session helped you feel more confident, more empowered, sexy and comfortable with being a woman?
Most definitely, I have noticed I feel a lot more empowered and confident after the shoot.

A few words from Miss P…

It takes a lot of confidence for someone to strip down and be photographed in front of a complete stranger.  Nicole makes the experience so seamless and comfortable.  Right from the beginning Nicole put me at ease and she tailored the shoot to my personality and body style.  The whole experience was fun and empowering and Nicole makes sure you are comfortable and gives you tips on how to position your body to get the best results.  Nicole is so passionate about her work and it shows in the details you receive as part of the boudoir experience.

Thanks Miss P. It was such a pleasure to create a beautiful boudoir experience for you! And if you would like to know more about how we could create a beautiful boudoir experience for you, then get in touch!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely G family for Lewis’ first Birthday (side note… where did that year go?). We decided to head out to the family property where we could include some of the beautiful retired race horses in the photos.

Aren’t these boys just the cutest?!

We of course had to get the three boys on the horse (with Grandad’s help of course).

After some gorgeous family photos and some individual photos of Lewis, we let him loose on a cake and he LOVE it!! Straight away he was into it, smashing it up and of course eating all of the yummy icing!! And then right at the end, he decided to sit in it!!

So that concludes Lewis’ first year baby plan shoot! It makes me a little sad that I won’t be photographing these guys as regularly any more (unless more babies arrive!). I absolutely have loved capturing all three boys first years and I can’t wait to capture some family portraits in the years ahead!
