Your Secret is Safe with Me - Never be Afraid to Be You

'I want a Bridal Boudoir' she said 'but I am really nervous and have no idea where to begin'

'I haven't told anyone and want it to be a secret'

Your secret is safe with me.  Now let's begin.


The young lady was getting married in a few weeks and she wanted to surprise her husband to be with a little book.  Some classy, intimate photos that she could give him on their wedding day.

The best thing to do I said, was to meet up and have a chat over a cuppa, so that we could get to know each other.  Also she would then find out if she would feel comfortable with me enough to relax in front of the camera.

A good cup of tea and a chat is always a good ice breaker.
So, to cut a long story short, we had our cup of tea and chat and a date was made for the bridal boudoir shoot.  

We decided that the lady would be more comfortable coming to my house and using my spare room for the shoot.

Makeup Artist was called and appointment made

I organised for my makeup artist to arrive slightly before our client, so that I could give her the low down.   Laura is absolutely brilliant when doing makeup.  She is relaxed and chatty and makes everyone feel at ease.  This occasion was no different.

So with all the bridal bits and pieces hung upstairs waiting, the bridal boudoir makeover began.
We used some pretty flowers to set the scene and to put in the bride to be's hair.  It looked really pretty, but you'll have to take my word for it because it was and still is a secret! :)

Never be afraid to be you.


Well, with makeup applied and makeup artist departed, we retreated to my spare room.  

Nerves were a little on edge with the lady.  She looked stunning and I said 'just be yourself - it's you your fiance has fallen in love with.  It's the real you he'll want to see in these photos - don't be afraid to be you'

And finally a totally relaxed lady who was absolutely thrilled with her images and little book.
  
Let's hope her husband is too!

Always remember, unless you tell me I can, I won't share your images.
Your secret is always safe with me.
