Ms M – boudoir shoot

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.”

Jodi + Gabriel – Jewish Wedding Sydenham Shul

Jodi is gorgeous, a classic beauty that belongs in a magazine spread, but she is also generous, gentle and funny. Gabriel got lucky 😉 Not that he’s half bad mind you, handsome, successful and smart and with lots and lots of energy (no really, lots) 🙂 I heard a quote the other day and it summed these two up for me – she is his sanity and he is her crazy…I love that!

I love the traditions and symbolism of Jewish weddings…the bedeken is so very special, pulling the veil down and to me it just says ” I would marry you no matter what you looked like” You are the one.
I love the energy and joy of the whole day, the special bonds with family that don’t get forgotten and especially the party!!! The horas, the dancing, the kids running around chasing bubbles…its high energy and exactly what a celebration should be. So much so that Jodi’s dress didn’t quite survive the evening 🙂

We did the creative shoot in town the next afternoon, exploring the streets and buildings around Arts on Main, trying to work around the dress that won’t close no matter how you pinned it, a slightly hungover groom (as you should be the day after your wedding), getting stuck in a lift, and hyperactive photographers. We stopped for pizza, sat on the side of the road, drank whiskey out the bottle and ended off on a bohemian little rooftop bar for a glass of wine and a beautiful sunset over Jozi. Now that’s a wedding.

Thank you guys for trusting us and can I just say – it was a BALL! And thanks again to my friend, Corinna for seconding.

There are loads of images, loads… you have been warned 🙂 I apologise if it takes long to load, but there were just too many special people and moments.
Grab a glass of something and settle in!
