Stella Sassen Photographer – Boudoir Photography done in Cape Town and Johannesburg
I need to express my gratitude for yesterday. From the moment the hair and makeup ladies walked in right till the very end, my experience was complete perfection. Thank you so so much for everything yesterday. I am still in awe of the entire experience.
It really left me with a stronger sense of confidence, beauty and self appreciation. I know that as women we will always have things about ourselves that we are not happy with or conscious about…But you made me feel so comfortable, and you made me feel so beautiful. And even at times when I felt a bit silly, you turned that into something fun.
This wasnt just a photo shoot, or a gift for my new husband…It was so much more. It was something I didn’t realise I needed for myself. Something I will be able to remember fondly on days when I am feeling self conscious, or days when I have low self esteem.
Thank you Stella, from the bottom of my heart for such an amazing experience yesterday. You truly are exceptional at what you do, and you are truly helping people in a unique and amazing way.

I don’t often blog my boudoir sessions – it is a very personal thing and only once in a while does someone allow me to post a few images. This wonderful, brave lady came for her shoot a while ago and graciously consented for these images to be blogged – I am so grateful xxx
“As a 40 something year old woman, I had been wanting to do this shoot as a celebration of my womanhood and femininity and as a way of reclaiming my body as a rape survivor.
I was initially a bit apprehensive and self-conscious but Stella and her team made me feel so incredibly at ease and beautiful. I was made to feel like a queen for the day.
The hours flew by but the confidence and boost to my self esteem and how the shoot has changed the way I perceive myself will stay with me always.
Since the shoot, I hold my head just a little higher, stand a little taller and still feel just as sensual and womanly as I did during the shoot.
It is something I would highly recommend to each and every woman out there.”
