BOUDOIR BY ANGEL EYES
DAVE AND MEL SMALLEY
Hi, We are Dave and Mel, and we are Brisbane boudoir photographers. We have been happily married since 2004 and photographers for since 2009, operating out of our Slacks Creek studio.
We both share a passion for creative photography and together, we work to create a fun and comfortable boudoir experience for you with gorgeous photos that will compliment you and your body. We both have different kinds of artistic flare that we bring into your session to create our style of boudoir.
During your session, you will have both of us as photographers. We believe this gives you the best of both worlds. The artistic perspective of 'what is sexy' from a male and female's point of view. Plus it's always a good laugh when Dave demonstrates some of the poses. You'll find that we are very down to earth people who are easy to get along with.
On a more personal level, we have 4 children who we adore and a couple of cheeky huskies. Our escape is to sit by the fire pit roasting marshmallows whether it is just the two of us or with family and friends. Dave also loves to get out on the basketball court and fire some arrows at target archery and Mel has a new found love for pole fitness. Our happy place is definitely holidaying on the beach. With or without the kids is the question though.
Now lets take this journey together and discover how fierce & beautiful you are! "
MAINTAINING THE SEAMLESS OPERATION - A MUCH NEEDED STUDIO MANAGER
Hey! I’m Sherie, the person you’re most likely to chat with if you have a query or are looking to book your own session! I love my role as Studio Manager here at Boudoir by Angel Eyes, partly because I enjoy chatting to people and helping them where I can, but also because I have a passion for organisation. I thrive on routine and work best when there is a place for everything and everything is in its place, which is absolutely necessary in this role! At home you would find things meticulously organised and everything labelled, nothing is safe from the dymo labeller!
I have an awesome little boy who is my permanent sidekick, so when I’m at home you’d find me playing whacky games, building Lego masterpieces or entertaining our two ginger kitties, plus Mum duties of course. I also have a very creative side, I’m an experienced cake decorator and nail technician, I love all things crafty and DIY and often have too many projects on the wish list! My favourite way to wind down is movie night and snuggles with my little one.
Can’t wait to chat to you! x
ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER - OUR POSING PRODIGY
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER - THE BRAINS BEHIND OUR DIGITAL PRESENCE
Hey! I'm Nicole! I assume various roles that I adore, within the Angel Eyes team!
Being able to make boudoir dreams come true with Angel Eyes is the perfect environment for me as it combines my perfectionism, creative flare and hype queen vibes!
Mel & Dave have bestowed a brilliant amount of knowledge on me in order to provide any Diva walking through our doors a fabulous boudoir experience and immortalised images of their beauty, to last a lifetime.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER
I'm the brains behind all the Social Media planning for Boudoir by Angel Eyes, plus I help run the Facebook groups, so you can have a fabulous time being immersed in boudoir and seeing what we do! I ensure that you always have something new to check out in the group, and that any of your questions get answered.
On a personal note...
In my free time I love being creative through dance and performance, and can usually be found in a dance studio somewhere (I even taught for a short while!) as well as watching paranormal and true crime doco's and catching up with friends and family.
Having always been drawn to spaces that promote body confidence and inclusivity, I firmly believe that your uniqueness is your magic. There’s no one like you!
THE CREATIVE MIND BEHIND OUR VIDEO CONTENT
Hi! I'm Teneal and I wear two hats for the Angel Eyes family. Not only am I one of the hair and makeup artists who will glam you up for your session, but also the creative mind behind all the reels, stories and Instagram - anything video related really, that's me! Make sure you check out some of the 'behind the scenes' videos I have created. They give you a really good idea of what to expect during a session!
MEET OUR HAIR AND MAKEUP TEAM
MEET TENEAL & CINDY
Hey!! I'm Teneal
Hair and makeup artist by day and mother to a few crazies by night. I've been doing hair and makeup since 2016 and still loving it. I'm a creative person and a little bit of a perfectionist at times, so makeup and hair is right up my alley. I love having a client sit in my chair and allow me to work my magic and enhance the beauty that's already there. This is my style as a HMUA, we don't want you looking like a completely different person. And one of the best parts is, when they look in the mirror for the first time after being all glammed up and say "oh wow, I love it".
When I'm not glamming I'm usually playing taxi to my children, having some downtime with my family or getting outdoors on a new little adventure with them.
Can't wait to see you in the studio.
Hey, I’m Cindy and I’ve been traversing the world of Hair & Makeup for over a DECADE now! This includes glamming up amazing women in the world boudoir, fashion, weddings and retail.
Having been in the industry for so long means that not only do I have the experience to ensure you not only look incredible, but also have an amazing time, you're can also rest-assured that my passion and love for enhancing your already beautiful features is still kicking!
When I don’t have someone in my H&MU hot-seat, I am on mum duty to one brilliant little, dinosaur-obsessed ratbag who is my tiny, life-long partner in crime (along with our cats!).
You can find me camping, cooking, at the beach or catching some live music in my spare time! Fun fact: I am also a qualified midwife!!!
