WHAT IS BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY?
WE GET IT! BOUDOIR IS A PRETTY BIG LEAP OUT OF ALMOST EVERYONE’S COMFORT ZONE. BUT HERE’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW:
✨ Boudoir doesn’t judge. Yeah, you read that right. Your size, shape, age, colour, sexual orientation, or any other category that can be listed doesn’t matter to us or our cameras.
✨ Boudoir doesn’t need an occasion. We know you’re busy, so when you have the time, you should spend it reconnecting with yourself.
✨ There’s no expiration date on being sexy. Women are like a fine wine - only getting better with age, and that’s a feat that deserves some celebration.
✨ This is all for you! Sure, you might be thinking of doing this shoot as a gift for your significant other, but this is still your day and your chance to be treated like royalty.
✨ Be bravely, unashamedly, boldly yourself.

This also gives you a chance to ask us any questions.
Girl - You got this!
You'll begin the day with the ultimate pampering of professional hair & make-up from our qualified in-house artist. Then we'll put you in touch with your inner goddess as we help guide you through a boudoir session of a lifetime!
Be prepared to walk out feeling like a new woman!
Yes!!! That is you!

Take your time in looking as this is where you will select the images you love.
"When I saw the finished product I was amazed. I never saw myself like that. I saw someone confident in her body, I saw myself in a different light. Its definitely built my self confidence and self worth and I felt and looked amazing"

"Oh my gosh! I am absolutely in love with my photos!!If you are on the fence, I would say ‘go for it!’ Mel and Dave are amazing and I felt like I already knew them before I even met them.
I was extremely nervous before my shoot, but they were so welcoming and made me feel so at ease that after 10 minutes or so I was relaxed and having a blast!! Give it a go ladies, you absolutely won’t regret it!"
HEAR HOW THESE WOMEN FELT AFTER THEIR SESSION
"I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD LOOK SO SEXY"
"I LEFT FEELING REALLY BEAUTIFUL , HAPPY AND VERY EMPOWERED. "
"I NEVER KNEW THAT I COULD LOOK THAT GOOD."
"Hi, guys. I'm Ren. I got my booty out with Angel Eyes Photography. What an amazing experience.
Now, as you can see, I'm curvy. I'm not a size six. I went in petrified, worried that I was going to be judged. That I'd be shamed because I'm not society's norm. But from the minute I walked in, Mel and Dave treated me like a princess.
I was pampered. I was primped. I was popped in positions that I haven't achieved since I was a teen. But it was fun. I had a ball, I had a laugh, and I walked out feeling pretty damn fine.
A couple of weeks later, I got to view my photos and oh my God, did not recognise the woman looking back at me. I suggest if you need a confidence boost, if you're a curvy girl like me booking with Mel and Dave now. You won't regret it."
"Hi, guys. Just a little video note just to say how wonderful Mel and Dave are.
I did my first shoot the other week and was very, very nervous going in. Being a bigger lady, I never show my skin to anyone. And they made me feel so comfortable. I ended up going topless. I'm very sorry. I can't remember the hair and makeup lady's name, but she was just so lovely and she made me look beautiful.
And I left feeling really beautiful, happy and very empowered. So I highly recommend this. This team of people. They're just so wonderful."
"...It was really stepping outside of my comfort zone. But Mel and Dave made the whole experience really easy from the moment I walked in. They were joking, making me feel at ease.
We had a great time. I enjoyed the whole experience and I have some incredible images from that day.
I have an entire album of photos and two wall arts, which I find incredible. I still look at them each day and think, Gee, is that me? A lot of people that have looked at my images can't believe that I'm 50 for a start and ask me who did these amazing photos? Mel and Dave are incredible at what they do. They made me feel confident in myself, and for that I cannot thank them enough. And I can't wait to do another shoot."

What is boudoir to me?
Boudoir to me is empowering women to love the skin they are in. To help them feel confident and sexy.
To show you a new perspective of you and help you fall in love with yourself.
On a personal note:
Pole fitness, dinner with friends and watching movies with my family.
I find strength and inspiration when I help women find their beauty and confidence through boudoir. I can't wait to help you on this journey.
What is boudoir to me?
To me boudoir is a discovery of ones self. A discovery of beauty, confidence and self love.
To help others see their true beauty no matter their age, size, body type or colour.
On a personal note
I love to play and watch basketball. Cooking and a bit of socialising.
I want to personally thank all of the women who have trusted me to help them see their own personal beauty. This is the true reward of being a boudoir photographer.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SRE SAYING
"I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD LOOK SO SEXY"
"...IT WAS SUCH AN EMPOWERING EXPERIENCE "
"I NEVER KNEW THAT I COULD LOOK THAT GOOD."
"I never thought I could look so sexy, I never thought I could look like a model.
If you’re even slightly thinking about doing a photo shoot stop thinking about it and just do it. There’s never going to be the 'right time.'
Don’t worry about your imperfections, your photos will turn out better than you could ever imagine"
"As someone who used to struggle with an eating disorder and has scars on her body,
I was a bit nervous going in front of the camera. But in minutes I was feeling super comfortable with Mel and Dave and decided I would do full nude!
It was such an empowering experience to be in my birthday suit, finally falling in love with my body"
"Due to an alcoholic ex-partner, my self-confidence, worth, and image were pretty much at an all-time low.
I never knew that I could look that good.
Right now my confidence level is pretty high, because of the boudoir shoot and those beautiful photos"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where will the session take place?
All photo sessions are held at our Slacks Creek Studio in Brisbane (two minutes from IKEA).
Our studio provides you with a private, quiet, and air-conditioned experience with a variety of different sets to suit every personality.
Do you supply outfits for the session?
We have a continuously growing client closet that you are more than welcome to use.
It includes lace robes, jackets, button up shirts, body suits, lingerie sets, heels, and much more! Don’t be afraid to pull out some of your personal favorites from your own closet, too.
How do I know my photos won’t end up on the website or Facebook?
We only post photos with a client’s permission, and even then the client can pick and choose which images they are comfortable sharing. Want to share the cozy sweater pic but keep the nudie shower shot to yourself?
That is your choice, and we would never try to influence your decision or share your images without getting the final say from you first.
I’ve been wanting to book a shoot for a while, but I’m just so nervous!?
Trust us, we totally understand. We’ve never had a client that wasn’t at least a little nervous when they first step into our studio, but once we take those first few photos, the nerves just seem to vanish. Before you know it, you’ll be having the time of your life!
But what if I’m not good with makeup and styling my own hair?
Did you really think we would leave you hanging? All of our boudoir sessions include full professional hair and makeup from either Teneal, Loren or Cindy.
This isn’t just a photoshoot. It’s a full pamper session that will leave you photo-ready with the perfect curls, gorgeous lashes, and a glass of bubbly.
But I can't pose for the life of me?
That’s why you’ve come to professionals. From here on out, you can call us your personal posing coaches, since we’ll explain every stance, head tilt, and bat of your eyelashes to best suit your body type and personality.
Dave might even demonstrate a pose or two while we laugh in the background! Maybe you have some pose inspiration? Bring it with you! We would love to incorporate it into your session.
