Mothers Day sessions

This week we look back on some of our favourite mother and daughter/son sessions in the studio.  From locations to studio and whatever age you are these are always such worthwhile sessions.  To have a photograph of yourself and your mum, parents or significant other I just don’t think its something you will ever regret doing.  So hi to all the mums out there for being such legends and get in touch if you would like to book in a mothers day session with your special person this mothers day.

before you walk down the aisle..

Below are a few images from Gia-Dene’s  Pre wedding shoot.  What a beautiful gift to give to a loved one but also something to do for yourself x  big love always – Beautiful You xx

what brought you to the studio to get new corporate images?

continuing our Woman of Perth project today we are featuring Sam Burling from Seuss&Co  on the blog who recently came into the studio for some new work shots we sat down with Sam after her shoot and asked her a few quick questions

Q – who are you and what is your profession? 
I am Sam Burling from Seuss & Co. I work as a freelancer and consultant managing event sponsorship and corporate partnership solutions, marketing and brand development, and events. I also spend a big chunk of my week working with the Royal Flying Doctor Service managing their corporate partnership program and events.
Q – Do you work with a lot of woman in your field?
Yes! I love to find role models within the industry or simply women who speak my language and provide feedback on their own entrepreneurial journeys – everyone has a story and I love to hear them. 
Q – what brought you to the studio to get new corporate images?
I think it’s important to have your own personal brand, especially when you have your own company and you are your very own ambassador. 
Q – how did you find the experience of getting your photo taken
To be honest, I hate having my photo taken, in fact I cringe at the thought, but Stef and her team were so lovely and relaxed it made it less of a chore and something I would recommend to others in my position.

A new shoot style

A few weeks ago I was lucky to have gorgeous model Georgia Gibbs stop by the studio to shoot for an ongoing project I’m currently shooting called 5min with for online blog Style Voyeur its a very candid raw photo session and and interview with the model involved. You can see it here online  http://stylevoyeur.com/2015/03/5minwith-georgia-gibbs/

This got me thinking of the way photography is changing and the style of womans photography is changing  I guess maybe we are more liberal than every before and we don’t feel scared to embrace who we are and show it through photographs that we can keep as memories forever. So last week I tried this really raw lighting style with a pre wedding shoot client and the results were amazing!!  A modern approach to shooting sexy photographs of woman which is both classy and sexy all at the same time. I would love to know what you think! If you came in for a photo session would you like this style of shooting?

We are so In Love with this image of one of our clients Legs!  ok ok she has such beautiful long legs but it just goes to show that sometimes the most abstract images can make the most beautiful wall art canvas prints!  I love the idea that this can sit as a huge art print on your wall in your home and nobody would even know it was you unless you told them!!!!

bring sexy back..

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the biggest trends right now in photography is Boudoir.. yep people its making a come back.. while some argue it never left we are finding more and more woman are requesting a sexy style of shoot.  Weather it be a shoot for yourself to celebrate how god dame fabulous you are or a milestone or having worked your butt off at the gym why shouldn’t woman celebrate the amazingness of who we are and what we look like!  If you were to do a boudoir shoot what would you’re requests be?  make me look subtle but sexy?  drop dead gorgeous?  bombshell babe? would you be game to shoot semi tasteful topless nudes? or keep it sexy but covered? to celebrate the month of March and the end of summer  I’m going to be posting some thoughts throughout the month about Boudoir shoots and some different ideas to explore for when you come in for your session…  for now here is a taste  of some beautiful images we are working on right now and more to come throughout the month <3amanda3low

mums are the best..

One of our favourite shoots to do is our Mother/Daughter sessions.   When Kristale came in for her session with her two beautiful daughters I knew there was some very special shots to be made x  After Kristale’s shoot I asked her a few questions and here is what she had to say about her session..
How did your beautiful you shoot come about ?
My very thoughtful husband got me a voucher for my 30th birthday. He wanted me to feel special and have a memento of how great I looked at 30 to look back on.
Where you nervous before your shoot?
Yes very! I actually told Stef I couldn’t think of anything worse then having photos of myself done.
What was your favourite shot of the day?
The ones of  my girls  and I dressed up in pink fairy dresses it was so fun to do that with them and dance around.
What would you say to woman wanting to do a photo shoot for themselves if you could give one piece of advice?
Just relax and don’t stress about it. The girls will make you feel so comfortable and you will look amazing. I am so so happy with the way my photos turned out and really glad I did it.

I never do this…

 

 

Meet Eve… dancer, singer, performer burlesque dancer!  Eve came  into the studio last month to get some gorgeous shots of herself and to tell us about her new Lingerie party business “I never do this”   We had so much fun shooting Eve she has no worries at all posing and just spent the afternoon dancing around the studio.  I asked her how she does it.. as most girls can get really shy once the camera is turned on them.. Eve gave this great advice.. “You just have to let yourself relax.. forget about what you look like, what you are feeling like and just continue to move… the photographer will stop you if they see a great pose. Play upto the camera like you do in the mirror!”

great advice!!

Here is a little bit about Eves new venture.. I Never Do This is an at home shopping/ party concept designed especially for the women of today.  We offer a safe, comfortable and fun environment by bringing the shop to you. In the convenience of your own home or chosen venue, the stigma attached to purchasing adult products under normal retail circumstances is removed and replaced with a few hours of fun and relaxed entertainment with friends.

I Never Do This offers an exclusive range of lingerie, nightwear and adult products. Whether it’s a Hens Night, Couples Night, Birthday, Christmas Party, Fundraiser or just a get together, we will help you experience a very special night filled with games designed especially for you and your guests. So what are you waiting for, maybe you should try this…?   https://www.facebook.com/ineverdothis  Email Eve –  ineverdothis@mail.com

Side note –  Boudoir shoots are one of our most requested shoot session but they rarely make it onto the blog.. we believe these sessions are private sittings and intimate photos of yourself for you to share at your own discretion. We only shoot tasteful female boudoir shoots at beautiful you studio. if you are interested in a nude shoot or a couples session I can refer you to the other photographer based in our studio Janet Craig. Our Boudoir blog post are only posted with full permission by the sitter.

photo shoot mood boards

Before any photography sessions we sit down with you and have a one on one conversation about what you want to wear and what you would like to look like for your portrait session.  These details help us determine the style, vibe of your photoshoot. from how we do your hair and makeup ( do you like your makeup natural or do you want serious glam or even something as simple as I’ve always wanted a Marilyn Monroe red lip ) to how Stef photographs you and the lighting she uses.   One great way to prepare for your shoot is to put together a mood board of ideas. ( Did you know before any magazine, fashion shoot or model portfolio shoot this is what the creative team does to prepare for the shoot? )  A mood board can contain anything from style of clothes, lighting, location, accessories, hair and makeup trends and ideas anything that inspires you and helps us achieve an incredible picture for you.   Over at Beautiful You HQ we are compiling some mood boards on our Pinterest page to inspire you.

This first Mood board title “Opulence”  is up on our Pinterest page to give some thursday inspiration. The Pinterest link can be found on the top right corner of our website.
