Happy Friday everyone how are you all coping with the heat? I have to admit...
Only a coupe of weeks ago I was saying that I hardly ever post boudoir shoots, and what happens I get this little beauty land in my in box. It is a beautiful shoot sent into me by Mya at SilverMoon Photography . The shoot was actually commissioned by the model, and there were quite a few other more risqué shots that I couldn’t really add to the collection, very tasteful but I wasn’t quite sure a wedding blog was really the right place for them.
What I love about this shoot is the incredible lighting and the soft feminine editing added to the images. They are all very simply but very dreamy and ethereal at the same time. The whole team worked well to create a beautiful set of images for the model Natalie Jayne , who I’m sure is over the moon with them.
Mya tells me a bit more about how the shoot came about
The shoot – February 2012
‘Natalie Jayne, the model for this shoot, contacted me after she has seen my work on my Silvery Moon Photography Facebook page. Natalie Jayne has been modeling for some time, but had always worked with male photographers in the past and wanted some of my more feminine images to enhance her work portfolio. Natalie Jayne makes her own fabulous “Steampunk” jewelry and loves the sub-culture associated with it, so I knew I could give her pictures a bit of an edge…. Hence the amazing star-tipped false eyelashes that I sourced especially for her!!’

I’ve found my style pretty early on …. I love to document weddings with reportage photography, capturing those amazing moments as they happen….. it’s more like telling the story of the wedding. I like to get to know my Bride & Groom’s before the wedding, I think it’s important to understand what they want and to find out about their individual personalities, so this can shine through in the images…..as a result I get choked up at every wedding I document!
I have the same approach to my other passion, Boudoir Photography. I like to get to know my ladies prior to the shoot and we will chat on the phone and exchange lots of texts and e-mails. It’s important they feel relaxed and comfortable, as it will show in the final images. I like soft, romantic images and use a lot of focal depth in my Boudoir photography. I focus on detail and make the most of features like amazing eyes. Boudoir is very liberating and great for all shapes and sizes … whether you are size zero or size sexy! I work from my Home studio near Haworth, West Yorkshire.
