A FEW WORDS FROM SOME OF MY WONDERFUL CLIENTS...
“As I sit here reflecting I find myself looking back over my recent session with such a different attitude to the lady I was walking in. Without sounding negative (and I’m sure many are or have been in my situation), I have always battled with severe anxiety and had so much self doubt for as long as I can remember. I have always been so hard on myself and for years have watched Steph’s work with hope that one day I would build up the confidence to book a shoot. I am not writing this for sympathy nor am I saying a shoot will ‘cure’ you, but one thing I do know is having my shoot with Steph helped me in ways I didn’t know were even possible. I feel like a new person and I am so proud I did it. So ladies for those of you who are considering booking, this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Steph is one in a million ❤️🔥🙌🏼”
“Steph was the absolute best to work with. From the moment I emailed her from Melbourne (thinking I was crazy for wanting to fly up to Brisbane for a photo shoot, I live in Melbourne!), she was prompt with her response, super friendly and helpful and not at all pushy, just informative. In the lead up, she gave me plenty of information so I felt at ease and that was exactly how I felt when we met. It was like we already knew one another, she instantly made me feel at ease and Hayley who did my makeup was wonderful also, chatting away to me so I didn’t have time to ponder that I was about to take my clothes off! When it came time to shoot, she was great with helping me pick my outfits but above all else she has a great knack for helping you pose and how to adjust your pose. This has always been a sore point for me - I feel so awkward posing. My partner also felt at ease and he was more nervous than me. Steph has a way of making you feel beautiful and confident in the moment so you can act with ease. We had such a fun afternoon and I can’t wait to go back post pregnancy for a shoot just for me. Receiving the proofs, I was blown away, I couldn’t believe how good I looked and how beautiful I felt. Do yourself a favour if you’re considering a boudoir shoot, don’t go anywhere else and trust that Steph knows how to make you feel like the goddess you are.”
“My boudoir experience with Steph was absolutely amazing! I had so much fun in the shoot - Steph is so professional and fun, and she made me feel awesome! The photos are amazing - she has chosen poses and angles that flatter me the best and I am so happy with them. You will not regret booking with her for a boudoir shoot! So much fun... I will definitely be back in the future! Steph, your website is what drew me to book with you, it stood out above the rest. Even looking at another 4 or 5 after yours, just to make sure I had looked through all the options, I came back to yours without any hesitation. Definitely the best photography in my opinion, and my experience was even better than the expectations I had going into my shoot. You're doing an awesome job! Thanks again :)”
"Wow, ladies if you’re on the fence about booking a shoot or not, please don’t hesitate and book!! I promise you you won’t regret it. The experience/excitement/thrill is so amazing and one I feel every woman young or old should experience. Steph is hands down amazing, and very welcoming. From the moment I stepped into her home studio and she handed me some champagne 🍾 I knew this was going to be amazing..... and I wasn’t disappointed. Steph has an amazing ability to make you feel comfortable, whilst guiding your through poses that will work with your body shape to get photos that you will adore. Her passion for getting beautiful images and making women feel amazing is what makes her so easy to work with .... I guarantee by the end of it you won’t want to put your clothes back on! Thanks so much Stephanie xx 💋"
"Doing a boudoir shoot has always been on my list of things I’ve wanted to do, but never had the confidence to go ahead with it. As I have been preparing myself for my wedding at the end of August this year I thought it would be the perfect time to do it as well as making the perfect surprise gift for my husband to be. From the very moment I arrived Steph made me feel welcome. She is so lovely and bubbly and exudes positive vibes, which definitely eased the nerves straight away. She showed me around her lovely new home studio and we had a discussion about the outfits I brought and the kind of photo styles I liked so that Steph could tailor the session just the way I envisioned. The shoot itself was so exhilarating and fun. I’m usually one to shy away from the camera but felt extremely comfortable around Steph. She guided me through the whole process and gave clear directions on how I should pose and where (and even gave me breaks to eat cookies in between). I have seen a couple of sneak peek photos already and can not wait to see my final gallery!! Thank you so much, Steph and also to Kailee who did hair and makeup. She worked her magic and I felt absolutely gorgeous the entire day! 10/10 would recommend and hope to come back another time."
"Thank you so much Steph. The images are spectacular and I would never have thought I could be photographed like that. I have never felt more alive. You are incredible at what you can do, not only with a camera but the whole experience. From the bottom of my heart thank you. My partner is so appreciative for what you have done for me and the confidence you have left with me. Again Steph, thank you. Thank you for changing my life."
"Working with Steph was such an amazing experience! From the information and preparation before the day to the planning, hair and make up, shooting, styling etc on the day and even post shoot, Steph has been nothing short of amazing. I was quite nervous leading up to my shoot, but upon meeting Steph I was instantly at ease and felt excited more than nervous. Steph is so encouraging, fun, friendly and passionate about Boudoir and made me feel 110% comfortable in my own body, and empowered me to flaunt what I have for the camera. Steph is worth every cent and I would highly recommend her!"
"I have done some extreme, exhilarating things in my life (Skydiving and Kokoda trail) however I never expected to find such a rush and endorphin release from a photoshoot. I have never felt more strong and unbreakable than during this shoot."
"Anyone who has not experienced a Boudoir shoot before, should definitely put it on their to do list. The thrill and excitement alone is something else and having images to keep forever is empowering. I am so glad that I booked with Stephanie for a boudoir shoot and I cannot recommend her enough. I wanted the shoot to be a surprise my husband as we recently got married and also a present for myself for my birthday. Steph made me feel very relaxed, comfortable in my own skin and beautiful, whilst her professional experience guided me every step of the way. I can guarantee you Stephanie will change you life!"
"My experience of a photo shoot with Stephanie was transformational. Having worked in the photography industry, I had seen other photographers get great results from professional models. When I booked in with Steph, I was hesitant because I am a size 16 and very shy, but I really wanted something I could look back on and appreciate. I thought getting beautiful photos of me would be a challenge, but after doing my research I felt Stephanie was the right photographer to do it. The results have been phenomenal and have most definitely changed the way I see myself. If you want to feel more confident and have a collection of beautiful images to treasure, I highly recommend booking in a session with Stephanie."
"I couldn’t imagine doing the shoot with anyone else! I honestly can’t thank you enough for the most incredible, uplifting and amazing experience! You truly made me feel so comfortable and at home! You are incredibly gifted and talented and I’m so happy I was able to do a shoot with you! I left feeling the best I have about myself in a VERY long time!! You made me feel like I am good enough, and to me that means more then anything I could have ever imagined come out of the shoot, so thank you! You’re an amazing woman bringing so much to women across the country!!"
"I knew boudoir was something I wanted to do for my fiancé as part of a wedding gift. I did a lot of research on Google, and the style of your photos and the details in your shots were beautiful and unlike any other. All the welcome and prep emails leading up to the shoot really helped prepare and guide me on what to expect and do. The Welcome Guide is such an immense help - and great touch! The whole experience was amazing. You made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. I also loved how much time you took planning my photoshoot while I was getting ready. It made me feel really part of the planning process and very confident I was going to get all the photos I wanted and more.To anyone considering doing a boudoir shoot... Definitely do it! It’s fun, you feel great during the photoshoot and proud of your body! Don’t be shy and don’t talk yourself out of doing it because of a part of your body you are unhappy with - YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! And Steph captures all your beauty."
"This was always on my bucket list of things to do before I turned 40. I did a lot of research into photographers, and yours were by far the most professional with a lot of different poses and lighting. I was very nervous about my shoot as I have a lot of body image issues after I had kids and getting older. But my experience was second to none. You made me feel very comfortable in my skin and not once did you make me question the poses I wanted to try!All I can say is don’t think twice about booking a shoot with Steph, have all the confidence that she knows what she is doing. From start to finish Steph was so professional and friendly. For me it was a very liberating experience and can’t believe that it took me so long to do it!"
“I've been wanting to do this for a while but didn't really think I was beautiful or sexy enough to look good in photos. After 4 children and the scars that they brought, I was not confident in myself and my body. I decided to do this for 2 reasons.....my wedding anniversary is coming up and I wanted to surprise my husband with something sexy as a present and secondly, because I needed to see myself through someone else's eyes and believe that I am still beautiful. I love you work Steph. It is sexy and hot whilst still being classic, elegant and beautifully composed and captured. During the shoot I made an effort to release all my inhibitions and feelings about my body, and just let loose. I had a lot of fun. You helped me feel comfortable in my skin, directed me gently but effectively with how best to pose and were very in tune with the results I was hoping to achieve.It was so much fun, relaxed and empowering as a woman and a mother to do something for me. I’m so glad that I overcame my own inhibitions to get in front of the camera and feel sexy and beautiful for once!!”
“I’m not sure I can even express how much my shoot has helped me, but I will do my best to put it in words. From the moment I arrived I felt so comfortable with Steph. She was so welcoming, friendly and bubbly which relaxed me straight away. The whole shoot was amazing, I felt so hot, sexy and confident with my body and I haven’t felt like this since before my children. My hubby even took a photo of me last night when we were out and I couldn’t believe how beautiful I looked, and was so shocked today when I saw my images. I still can’t believe it’s me! I look amazing and I honesty have never seen or thought of myself like that. You are absolutely amazing and talented and I can never thank you enough for what you have done for my self confidence. Thank you so much and I will definitely be doing another shoot with you.”
“Steph posted a picture from my shoot, I liked it & read her quote! I then really looked & realised it was me. I saw me through the lens, I saw me confident, sexy, sultry, strong I saw me how others see me. I didnt see all my imperfections or what I dislike in myself. At that moment I fell back in love with me I was reminded that all those negative things don't matter. The shoot was empowering, mesmerising, fun, sexy & a massive confidence boost. I could not speak more highly of Steph. She had me comfortable from the beginning, she helped me to relax, laugh & enjoy each moment. She is so easy to take instructions from and she makes you feel like a sexy goddess. I have never posed or got naked in front of a photographer before yet she made it so easy and calming. Those few kgs you haven't lost, the skin imperfections, the parts of your body you don't love. None of it matters on the day. She makes you feel like no matter the pose, the outfit or the backdrop your gorgeous in every way. Please do this for yourself! I also had the pleasure of including my partner at the end of my shoot and seeing my partners face light up when he saw the picture was amazing and special! Steph by far is amazing at what she does!!!”
"OH.MY.GOD!!!!!!! These images are insane!! I can't believe thats me!! I absolutely adore every single image!! Thank you SOOOOOO MUCH. I've been feeling a lot more at home in my skin after the shoot, after having my son and the changes that your body (and whole life) go through. I can't tell you how liberating and confidence boosting it has been to see and feel like 'me' again. And now seeing the images - I hope my head is still going to fit through doors!!! Haha. I think every mum struggles a little bit to accept their new skin but this whole experience has shown me that even though my body has changed, it's still beautiful. And even though my life has changed, and I spend most days with no makeup on and covered in baby food or worse, I still have this side of myself. That version of me isn't gone. You really are offering more than photos, you're showing and reminding women how magnificent they are, and that filters through to every aspect of their life - I can feel it in how I'm walking, how I'm talking to myself. Everything! Thank you for being so amazing Steph, a few people asked me if I was nervous or felt awkward and honestly I thought I would be but I wasn't - you are so lovely and relaxed it just felt like hanging out with a friend"
"Steph's gentleness, direction and constant compliments produced some amazing shots. All I can say is WOW! So... whilst I respect women are inspired to get shots done for their partners... from the bottom of my heart I encourage you to consider doing something like this FOR YOU. I tell you, after being single for many years, I feel more like a woman today than I think I ever have. A HUGE THANK YOU to you Steph and the work you do in helping us for fall back in love with ourselves."
"My boudoir shoot experience was AMAZING! I must admit I was a little nervous about booking, but I wanted to embrace and celebrate my body, being on the curvier side. During the shoot, I felt comfortable and confident. The guidance and support you give throughout is fantastic. Your words were so encouraging and confidence boosting. All the emails leading up to the shoot are also extremely helpful. To anyone considering doing a boudoir shoot, all I can say is DO IT... but do it with Steph. You won't regret it!"
“I have been doing a happy dance nonstop since I saw my photos. I can't believe that's me! I have never felt more beautiful than I did in front of Steph's camera. It was an absolute blast and you leave with a spring in your step. I would highly recommend Steph to everyone. The whole experience was AMAZING! It was so much fun, Steph made me feel so wonderful and comfortable. I wish it never ended. Hopefully I'll get to do another one with her soon. I just love my images so much. I want to hang them on the trees around my neighbourhood!"
"My boudoir shoot felt like a rite of passage to me. As someone who has always struggled to feel sexy, my shoot was an incredible experience. From going shopping for lingerie, to getting my hair and makeup done, and then working with Steph to create looks that made me feel sexy, I loved every second. If you are considering it, do it! Do it for you!"
"I’m a photographer and I’ve been following your work for years and fell in love. It wasn't something I ever thought about doing until I seen your work and thought it would be a great idea for my husbands birthday present. When I found out you were in Brisbane I was devastated, as I'm in Sydney. So I did some research into other boudoir photographers around my area, and nothing compared. I was so exited to see that you were coming to Sydney again, that I booked straight away! My experience with Steph was exactly how all her past clients described it.... Easy going, relaxed, and fun! She was so thorough with every aspect of my shoot right down to tricks and tips to practice on how to pose before the shoot, but even then her direction during the shoot is so easy to follow. I never felt uncomfortable, self conscious or aware I was walking around with lingerie in for hours. From the moment I booked, I felt completely looked after. Thank you so much for the amazing experience!”
"Steph you are just lovely and easy to talk to, even though I am not the most talkative person. I didn't feel arkward being half naked, it was just like you knew exactly how to make my body look great in a photo and I trusted you. You're just a woman and I am too, and we all have the same but different body, and there really isn't anything to be embarrassed about. I realize that now. The experience was really just quite easy, and fun, you helped so much with guiding me how to pose! I look at my photos and think "Oh, thats what other people see, I do have a beautiful body." Any women considering doing a boudoir shoot, do it for yourself. I just think why not. I think it's so freeing. To get out of you head and your opinions of the way you look. See the way you look and realize how beautiful you really are!"
“Love love love my photos, you’ve done such an incredible job, I really can’t thank you enough. I’ll treasure these photos forever, I’m so glad I decided to book in with you for my shoot.”
“I decided to do the shoot as I wanted to create something that I could give my partner that was a bit more sentimental and intimate, but was also a gift for me too. I never really saw myself as sexy, so I wanted to prove myself wrong! Steph your work is sophisticated and classy, and it was important to me to have a female photographer, as I felt it would be a more comfortable environment. I honestly couldn't have had a better shoot, it was amazing. We had a few laughs and it was just like hanging out with an old friend. You told me exactly what to do and what is the most flattering position for my body, even to the point where you moved a finger if it doesn't look right! It's all about the details. As a women, I knew Stephanie would understand any insecurities I had and instead of trying to mask them, she helped me own them. How many times in your life will you get the chance to work with someone who is truly great at what they do?! ... Also, you have the best cookies to eat in between photos!!”
“Wow! You are an absolute genius! They are beautiful! Thank you so very much. I LOVE THEM! It’s just perfect, exactly what I was after. Thank you so much. You will definitely remain my photographer for all things going forward!”
“I was a little bit nervous about doing a Boudoir photo shoot, but now that the experience is over, I am so happy that I did it, and even happier that I chose Steph as my photographer! She was so helpful leading up to the shoot – providing inspirational images, and advice on how to prepare myself and what to wear. Then when the day of the shoot came, from the moment I arrived at the shoot Stephanie made me feel so relaxed and confident in front of the camera – giving me great direction on how to pose, how to make my body look as sexy as possible and accentuate my assets – all of my nerves melted away and it was a really fun day! The best part of all was when I got to see the results! My goodness – at first I couldn’t even believe the photos were me they were so sexy and glamorous – what an incredible confidence boost it is to see just how beautiful you are through someone else’s eyes! I could not have been happier with my images – they exceeded my wildest expectations! The whole experience was fantastic, from start to finish, and I will be recommending Steph to everyone I know”
“My new husband absolutely LOVED the surprise which made it all the more worth it! You were so lovely and made it so easy and relaxed, thank you so much!”
“I just received my album and can't describe how thankful I am. Not just for my absolutely amazing images and my stunning album, but for the whole experience from start to finish. Everything was easy, nothing was a problem. You got back to me with any questions or concerns I had so quickly and made this mum of two feel so relaxed and beautiful. I was worried I'd feel awkward, but at no time whatsoever were there ANY awkward moments! Thank you again Steph, I really do appreciate your incredible talent and everything you've done for me!”
"To anyone considering doing a boudoir shoot... absolutely go for it! You will feel beautiful and sexy, but relaxed at the same time. Treating yourself is something not a lot of women do, but this is something that should be done at least once in your life! You will feel amazing!"
