Emma | Brisbane boudoir photographer

I can't tell you how much I love my boudoir sessions! There is something so powerful about helping women embrace their inner sultry goddess, giving them the courage to step out of their comfort zone and create these amazing images.

You may choose to book a boudoir session for your partner, as a gift for a special occasion... but I think it always does more for you - your confidence, perhaps facing your fears -  than you can imagine, when you take the leap and book your session.

I only have a couple of dates left for image delivery before Valentines Day 2018 - how crazy is that?! I also have a special offer available via my private Facebook Group, if you'd like to come and join the fun. See you there!

Now, see more of Emma's amazing boudoir session below ... how freaking incredible does she look?!

Jessie | Brisbane boudoir photographer

Jessie was such a stunning model for her recent boudoir session! So well-prepared, Jessie brought a whole bag full of lingerie and accessories to use for her shoot. We chose a great selection of outfits, which totally complemented her amazing figure. As a mum of two young children, Jessie was initially a little self-conscious, however after seeing her images I think her confidence has definitely been boosted.

"Oh my gosh Morgan!! I actually look hot! You have made me look sooooo good. Thank you!!!! I'm so happy with how they have turned out, as I honestly didn't feel sexy at all. You are so talented!"

I'm currently taking bookings for September onward, with only a few dates left for the remainder of the year. Contact me to find out more information!

Natasha | Brisbane boudoir photographer

Another amazing boudoir session from a recent client! Natasha is a very talented fellow photographer, and I think this definitely helped her in posing and expression - she was a total natural! Not to mention the stunning collection of lingerie she brought along to use.

Natasha says "What a confidence boost. I thought I would feel nervous and ‘awkward’ having my pictures taken. Why!! Why was I was worried? Morgan makes you feel comfortable. She helps to guide you into flattering poses and honestly makes you feel like there’s no reason to be shy. As a mum of two It felt so amazing to have everything about you and these images to remind you, you still got it ;)  I am so incredibly happy with my images (so is my husband!)"

Boudoir Photography: What to Wear? | Brisbane boudoir photographer

So, you've gone ahead and booked a boudoir photography session for yourself - the biggest question I hear is, "what do I wear?!"

This guide has taken me a long time to compile, but please know that it is not necessarily black and white - after all, these will be your photos, your budget, and your body. So, take as much or as little from this guide as you like - I am always more than happy to work with each and every client individually to select a wardrobe that best suits their needs.

Firstly, you will need to know what shape your body is. 

Source: http://cristinaalonsoillustration.tumblr.com
Inverted triangle: Also known as upside-down pear. You have broad shoulders, large breasts, small hips, slim legs. Look for knickers with frills or a high waist, to help balance out your top half. Deep v-neck bodysuits will help to slim down your shoulders/chest, while showing off your great cleavage.

Triangle: Also known as pear shape. You have a defined decolletage and small breasts, well-defined waist, and larger hips/thighs. Look for bras or bodysuits that have a lot of added detail around the chest/shoulder areas. Knickers which are low-rise, but are high-cut on the sides will help to balance your bottom half, and lengthen legs.

Rectangle: You are fairly straight up and down, no major curves and very little/no waist definition. Waist-cinchers, such as waspies or corsets, can help define your waist and create some curves. Look for padded push-up bras, ruffled knickers, and high necklines.

Round: Also known as apple shape. You have full breasts, round hips, and often shorter in stature. Look for bodysuits and lingerie that helps to lift breasts to create a longer torso. You may choose to wear a babydoll or negligee which will skim over your belly and hips to help hide any lumps or bumps.

Hourglass: You have full breasts and larger hips, with a slim waist. Look for bodysuits with a v-neck, and bodysuits which feature a waist belt or embellishment. Garter belts also look amazing. This body type is lucky, as almost everything looks good on you! Just ensure you choose pieces that are structured and well fitted.



"What about help for more specific areas..."

Small boobs: You want to boost them! Stick to underwired bras (so no bralets) and padding. If you can't create cleavage, try higher necked bodysuits or bra tops. If you find a bodysuit you love, but it doesn't provide boosting or padding, try wearing a bra underneath (if the style permits). 

Big boobs: Flaunt what you've got! Find bras with great support that boost them up, to lengthen your waist and create killer cleavage. Bralets look amazing with perky breasts (fake or natural) that don't need so much support to lift. Look for deep v-neck bodysuits and avoid high necked pieces. 

No waist/short torso: Avoid long-line bras, high waisted knickers, and garter belts. Bustiers can help cinch in your waist and also boost up your breasts to help lengthen your shape. 

Short legs: Look for high-cut knickers on the side (or wear them above your hip) to help your legs appear longer. Nude coloured pumps will also be your best friend, as they will be seen as an extension of your legs, making them appear longer in your photos. 

Mummy Tummy: Are you left with saggy, wrinkly belly skin after having children (or losing a large amount of weight)? Bodysuits are a great option to smooth over your skin if you'd prefer to completely cover the area. Don't shy away from a killer lingerie set though - my posing and editing can still help to make you look flawless!  

Large arms: This can be an issue for many women, regardless of body size - those "tuckshop lady arms / bingo wings"! Again, posing is key here - but adding a robe or oversized shirt can also be a fantastic prop to change up your look, and also conceal your upper arms at the same time. Dropped slightly from the shoulder, it can look super sexy! 

Muffin top: The best thing to avoid a pronounced muffin top, is to buy knickers at least one size larger than your usual size. You can also try pulling the sides up above your hip, depending on the style of knicker - this can also be a great pose to actually photograph. 


Other helpful tips...

* Try to avoid purchasing lingerie pieces online, unless you're absolutely sure on sizing - it's usually best to go in-store and speak with the shop assistants for their opinion and guidance about what works best for your body. In my experience, the girls working in speciality shops are always super experienced and only too happy to help.

* If in doubt, the bare minimum I would suggest is a black lingerie set, a bodysuit, and heels. My sessions allow for 3-4 outfit changes, however don't feel that this means you NEED to go and purchase 4 separate outfits! There are always so many options I can rely on to give you a full and varied boudoir gallery. 

* Although it's not compulsory to bring heels to your session, I'd highly recommend them. They help to lengthen your legs, and put that extra finishing touch on certain poses. I'd recommend either nude or black, round toed, closed in pumps. If you have both colour options, even better! If you also have a fun option, like leopard print, or sparkly glitter heels, bring them along too. 

* What style of knicker is best - there are so many options?! Generally speaking, I'd recommend the "Brazilian cut" knicker to be the best all-rounder option. 

* Although lingerie will usually be the most featured part of your boudoir photos, don't discount other clothing items that also can be used, that you might not always think of. These can be pieces such as an oversized knit sweater, opaque tights, knee socks, lace mask, sheer white t-shirt... the options are endless! 


* And lastly, but certainly not least - when you ooze confidence, it doesn't matter what you're wearing. Make sure you're totally comfortable with your outfit choices, that they make you feel like a supermodel. Flaunt it, be proud, and your images will look AMAZING!

All about professional hair and makeup - for photography

I get a lot of questions from clients, about makeup and hair for their photo shoot. I can't recommend a professional artist more, especially for boudoir photos. One of the best things about boudoir shoots, is that the focus is completely on YOU! You are doing this for your own reasons, celebrating the confidence in your own self. What better reason to pamper yourself and be styled by a professional, who will enhance your natural beauty features and help to boost your confidence even more. 

Over my years of portrait photography, and now most recently boudoir, I've really noticed that clients who have their makeup and hair professionally done photograph just so flawlessly compared to others. It's not always evident in person - sometimes it's not until I see them on my editing screen, that I notice the difference. It certainly makes my editing process quicker and easier.

To elaborate further, and provide professional perspective, I thought I'd have a chat with Liz, from Gorgeous by Liz. Liz is a professional makeup artist and hair stylist, and I've used her services for many clients over the past five years, and I'm always blown away at the quality of her work. Here's what she had to say ...




Have you ever taken a photo of yourself and thought, "wow, I thought my makeup was a lot darker/brighter/different than that"? Or gone from the bathroom into another room of the house with natural lighting, and again the same thoughts pop into your head? That is the best way to describe the main difference with everyday makeup to professional or photography makeup.

My business, or any professional makeup business, is designed to enhance your best features for the camera.

I always tell my clients, the makeup will look a bit darker or have more coverage than what you are used to in person; however, the camera will instantly lighten the makeup. As with most clients, they sometimes feel a bit overdone, so I get the lovely photographer to take a quick snap and show them the image on screen, so they can instantly see how the makeup will look.

False eyelashes are another must-do. All my clients are provided with false lashes. It just adds another layer to the final look. Even if you have beautiful long lashes to begin with, adding extra thickness will define your eyes even more, which again translates on-camera to that beautiful smokey look.

Another issue I notice a lot, is while your makeup looks beautiful in real life - in photos, it really does show up the flaws. And the most common mistakes I see, are incorrect foundation colours - their face and body don't match - and foundations that stop at the jaw line. All my clients are colour matched on their d├ęcolletage and then airbrushed from their face down to their collar bones, so that it's all smoothly blended in, without those harsh contrasts.
Hair is a lot easier to balance, but there are still differences between everyday hair and professional hair. Professional hair will give the right balance and body to even the whole picture out. And while hair isn't quite as harsh as makeup, if you're going to get your makeup done anyway, you may as well feel extra pampered and get both done.

Kylie | Brisbane boudoir photographer

Another sexy mama in the studio for boudoir photos recently - this mum of three was a natural poser!

Boudoir photo sessions are definitely a bit of a luxury purchase, and for some clients (especially mums with young children) there may not be much money left in the budget for expensive lingerie as well. Kylie was actually able to pick up all three of these sets for under $80 total! And they looked AMAZING. You really don't need anything fancy for your boudoir shoot - unless, of course, you want to! But at a minimum, I always recommend a black matching lingerie set, a white matching set, and a bodysuit or two. Of course, this totally depends on your body type, and what you feel comfortable wearing. I'm always only an email or PM away to help you when needed! I've even had clients send me photos directly from the change room while in store, to ask my opinion. I'm more than happy to help!

So now, let's all appreciate how amazing Kylie looks in her bargain lingerie. What a stunner!

Lizzie | Brisbane boudoir photographer

So, why book a boudoir photo session? Well - why not?!

My clients are everyday women, many of them mums to multiple children. After having a baby, we can sometimes feel that our body has been changed - and in fact, it has! At times, it can be hard to look at it in a positive light. We see the flaws - the stretch marks, saggy skin, uneven breasts. But this body has created life - we should be proud, and celebrate it!

Having said that, I completely understand the insecurities about feeling confident, when all we seem to notice are our flaws. I have the knowledge and experience to pose you in specific ways, to emphasise the best parts of your body, and help to conceal the areas you're not so happy with. Clothing choice is also a big part of this as well - I can provide guidance and suggestions about what will flatter your body the best. And of course, there can also be some help in the form of editing/airbrushing - I won't completely change your body shape into someone unrecognisable, but I can certainly help with nips and tucks to ensure you look perfectly polished. This is, after all, something that many women will only do once or twice in their lives - so you want to treasure the experience and the images forever.

Lizzie, below, is a mum of two children under five. And doesn't she look incredible! She says about her images, "They are all just amazing. You photograph me so well, I like myself in your photos (face as well as body)". I couldn't ask for better feedback than that!

If you're interested in booking a boudoir photo shoot, or would like more information, please don't hesitate to contact me
