"I Feel 40 and Fantastic!!" | Client Feature


I recently had the pleasure of photographing the stunning Raquel. Whilst initially chatting to her about the session, I could tell she was a little scared but also excited to see herself in a new light. This is a natural feeling for many girls who decide to go ahead with a Boudoir photo shoot for the first time. However once we meet in person and they begin their pampering in the comfort of the Boudie Studio, all nerves eventually subside and we have a tonne of fun!

Raquel's photos turned out INCREDIBLE to say the least. She chose to present her images in one of the stunning black folio boxes and printed one special image for the wall. But enough from me, read what Raquel had to  say bout her Boudoir experience.


- Raquel, 40, Public Servant

I booked my session as a gift to myself for my 40th birthday.  I felt a bit drab and was starting to get the pre-40 blues, so I thought a session of Boudoir would help lift my self confidence. After I booked, I instantly panicked! Oh no, what did I just sign up for, I thought. In the months leading up to my shoot I got more and more nervous.  On the day of the shoot, I was so nervous my whole body was shaking.

Leading up to the shoot, I was sent a planner. It was amazing!  I had no idea what I was doing before I read it.  The ideas for the outfits and accessories, as well as the information about skin preparation was most helpful. As soon as I walked through the door of the studio I felt reassured.  Allison has a very calming presence and she certainly has a way of making you giggle!

The hair and makeup process was amazing.  Watching Shell work her magic and then the final reveal in the massive mirror.... WOW!  Totally blown away!! The photo shoot was way more than I expected!  It was one of the most liberating things I've done in ages! It was much easier than I expected.  Allison has a way of getting you in the right position for the best possible photos. When the shoot was finished I felt amazing!  It was such a great experience and I totally lost that drab feeling I had about myself!!  I feel 40 and fantastic!!

I was a little apprehensive to see my images, but I was confident that Allison would have some great shots to show me. When I saw the final images all I had to say was WOW!  Just Wow!!  That can't be me, but it is!  It was hard to pick my favourites for printing when they were all just SO amazing! I will absolutely be booking another Boudoir session in the future! I have been recommending this experience to my family and friends without hesitation!
