On Saturday I launched my new Boudoir Studio and I’m ecstatic about this as I have been booking rooms at hotels for far too long and that at exorbitant prices. Then, when you arrived at the hotel they gave you a room which did not at all look like the one you saw on their website or it had other irritation which influenced the outcome of your work. This also had an impact on my prices and eventually what clients had to pay for Boudoir shoots and to get an opportunity to look gorgeous for probably one day in their lives.
I have been dreaming about converting the flatlet on my property into a studio as it would be perfect to have a room setup as well as a dressing area and bathroom – will still post photos of the latter two. I think I abused Pinterest for ideas and eventually decided on a white, gray and mint/avo green room. It helped that Mr Price Home had a range in the white, gray and green that I was thinking about and so the planning started.
I didn’t want to use the normal base of the bed I had and needed to get a new bed. I loved so many of the pallet beds I saw on Pinterest and asked my friend, Bethwell, if he knew anyone who can make me the bed. I organized all the materials and they eventually ended up making the bed in two days in my garage. And as you can see it looks absolutely amazing. Feel free to ask me for his number if you want any wooden products to be made. I only showed him the pictures and he made it from there.
We started painting the walls and I bought all the details and décor. I did most of the décor myself and absolutely just love how it turned out.
The ottoman was ordered from Osman from Barena Upholstery – Auto trimming and Furniture sales. They are situated at 628 Ontdekkers road, Delaray. His work is really amazing and service very professional.
I already had two shoots in the studio over the weekend and celebrated it with special people – from my amazing domestic worker, Grace, for all the cleaning and love, the make-up artist, Kirsten from Kirled Lash, to the clients as well as my special friends, Phillip and Elisna, who helped with the setting up and finishes. I love you all so dearly!
Enjoy this new adventure with me as my dream has become reality and I wish to make many a women look stunningly beautiful in this special place of mine. My wish for my client is to realize how beautiful she is and the world is so blessed to have her as a mother, girl friend, daughter, sister or whatever role she needs to fill. That there is beauty in her and the world needs more of that and what she has to offer.
And feel free to book your shoot with me, Contact Me, for an amazing experience and absolutely beautiful photos.
PS: My beautiful petite gray cat in some of the photos is not part of the décor, she was just too nosey and she fits the colour scheme :-D.
PPS: The studio is also available to be rented out to other photographer and terms and conditions apply.
