I was Flicking through my emails and came across a very familiar name Boudoir Girls and thought whats this. So reading on it was from the director Natalie asking me if i would like to do a shoot and have a bit of fun! So we set a date and before you know it i was knocking on her door and what a door it was! As Natalies house is self built and alot of hard work has gone into this original building! With its gothic/modern feel rooms had archways made from stone and stained glass panels in the kitchen. The whole house has pieces of furniture she has collected from her travels or refurbished herself. The entrance has a winding Black Cast iron stairs coming down the side of the wall while you can look up through to the other floors. My only words i used for the fist few minutes of our meet was wow Oh My God and amazing! Your typical words one uses when their speechless hhmmmm…. We got to the studio and there was wardrobes with clothes from different eras and retro props like old suitcases and french style dial phones! Lots of different coloured backdrops and makeup and mirrors and lights and cameras!
Wow it was sooo kool!!
We got to clicking and then chatting and after the shoot we sat down and a chat and it ends up we know the same people!
So i asked Natalie how did this all come about and this is what she told me…
My interest started when I saw a lot of other countries including England had Boudoir photography and pin-up photography. There was nothing available in Ireland like what I would want for myself so I set about offering women customized photo shoots including Boudoir, Pin-up, Vintage or themed. A shoot of their choosing, withing their comfort zone and of course some airbrushing to enhance their natural beauty even more. As a mother of two children I am very aware of body issues we women have. I aim to make each person look like the best version of themselves. With the help of talented makeup artists the transformation is often astonishing! Any creative ideas are welcomed and all ages and sizes are catered for . I use my design background to my benefit when making props, sets and I sew a lot of custom pieces for the dress up closet. The boudoir room sets are part of my home studio. The Boudoir side of it evolved to hen parties as we all love to dress up for those occasions and I have a VERY large dressing up closet! Booking as a group makes the whole shoot very affordable and more fun. I travel to hotels and venues nationwide with my makeup team for the photo shoot parties. This involves, bubbly, makeup and dressing up before being photographed looking your best! To date the most popular themes are Burlesque and pin up styles. It is a great way to have fun and have a memento of yourself ooking amazing. The hen’s are always buzzing afterwards and feel great heading out on the town all madeover!
My day with Natalie was amazing she made me feel so at ease as im no model, i did feel a bit special on the shoot and would do it again in a flash!
So to all you brides to be our all you besties out there this is definetly a way to spend your day!! Bottle of bubbly Makeup and hair stylist Photographer and costumes galore!! And you dont even have to leave your own county as Boudoir Girls Will Come to You!
