D is for Divine…..

As a photographer, I am entrusted with many a wonderful thing. From making someone feel a million dollars, to capturing their wedding day, and even keeping secrets. I take my role very seriously, and discussions that take place during a shoot are never shared. I would never like to abuse this trust.

A lot of what I do is all about trust. At times I see people at their most vulnerable. They might be about to embark on their wedding day and get a dose of cold feet, or they may be pregnant and wanting to flaunt their whole body in all it’s beauty – I love capturing the beauty of the pregnant woman… It always astounds me that there’s a living, breathing human being in there… Amazing!

Other times, I am invited to capture a woman’s beauty as a gift for their husband because they are separated by distance due to work as was the case with the beautiful woman I captured a few weeks ago. A friend that I have come to see in a new light – she’s not just a wife or mother, she is a beautiful, fun, intelligent, quirky and fabulous woman who loves her family immensely.

D’s hubby works on the other side of Australia, and she contacted me regarding a boudoir shoot and I knew I had to make this something special for her – she’s not what I would call conservative, but she was also concerned about sharing ‘too much’ if you get the drift!

D is a strikingly beautiful woman – there’s nothing plain about her. She has these gorgeous soulful eyes that just – well, I can see why her husband fell for her – he’s still swimming in their beauty. She’s what I would say quietly stunning – you’ll see what I mean when you see her before shot!

Gorgeous right?! I told you!

Then the fun began! D has this awesome wall – it’s exposed brick that has been painted this amazing red and I am jealous of it! She gussied herself up in a dress that her hubby bought for her last Christmas that she’s not been able to wear as it’s a little… well… a lot booby and she’s only worn it once even though she loves it!

Being that this shoot was her hubby’s Christmas gift, we went a little Christmassy with the first few photos…

We start tame... don't want the man of the house too excited just yet!

I wonder what you were thinking here D… Hmmm 😉

At this point we were interrupted by Master H who inherited his Mumma’s eyes….

Master H wanted some attention for himself too and with that kinda cuteness factor who am I to resist!?

Once Master H was satisfied, we got back to the task at hand… I’ll let the photo’s speak for themselves, but Miss D, you are all kinds of gorgeous! I can’t wait to get you back in front of my lens sometime in the near future! I’m glad your hubby loved your gift to him and I hope you enjoyed your day of doing something a little bit out of the ordinary. Let’s catch up for another Lemon Zing soon!

Isn't she lovely?

One of my faves - look at her eyes!

Beautiful rings...

*sigh* those eyes!

Who me?

Yes, you!

And those legs! Wow! They are never ending!

Strut your stuff!
