I’ve always loved the idea of doing a boudoir shoot,Â and after a introduction at Photography FarmÂ week in January and having an alternative boudoir session myself I felt ready and confident that I was ready to take it on! It’s really important to me that I do this my way, in a way I’m comfortable with and for the right intentions.
For me boudoir photography is a celebration of self, something to make you feel good about your body and why not?! When Jenny approached me about doing a boudoir session, I couldn’t be happier. Â She wanted to have a few photographs taken before her wedding, she’s worked very hard to loose weight not just for her wedding but for herself and her health, she’s done amazingly well and I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate.
We choseÂ Monachyle Mhor HotelÂ for the shoot, not for the utterly stunning surroundings but the beautiful, unique boutique rooms filled with gorgeous light. Â Jenny has spent a few breaks away with her (now) husband so it couldn’t really have been more perfect. Â I took Caroline McKeirnanÂ along with me, Jenny wanted a vintage style look which we arranged with Caroline in advance, she did an utterly fantastic job of Jenny’s Hair and Makeup, so good infact that Jenny changed her makeup for her wedding day, inspired by her boudoir shoot.
I’m so overjoyed to share these images today, thank you so much Jenny for being brave enough to let me share them, but why not?! I think she looks utterly stunning. Â To me the best part of the whole process was Jenny’s smile after the shoot,Â not only has she got a set of images with her looking killer but an experience that made her feel amazing, which makes me feel pretty amazing too.
Massive thanks to Monachyle Mhor Hotel for looking after us so well and the fabulous Caroline McKeirnan for hair and makeup and most of all to the fabulous Jenny, not only for sharing these images but for putting her absolute trust in me to do this for her.
