Gladstone Boudoir

 Gladstone’s Premier Boutique Boudoir and Glamour Studio

Look everywhere and anywhere and you will find images and ideas about what it means to look perfect, sexy and beautiful.

Just because you are not a size 6 or 8 or don’t weigh a certain amount, doesn’t make you any less beautiful than any another person.

Beauty is so much more than skin deep; it is your personalities, experiences, self-confidence and outlook on life that truly makes you beautiful.

While this concept is often easier said than done, there are many ways to feel beautiful again.

Feeling beautiful
takes effort, but it’s worth it. When you feel beautiful, you’ll love yourself
more and when you love yourself, your life becomes more positive. Happy and
positive people are not only more successful, but they live longer too.

Embrace who
you are, embrace your outer appearance and most of all, accept the things you
cannot change with open arms.

So…are you ready to empower yourself?

FAQ

What should I bring to my shoot? Do you supply wardrobe?

I don’t supply a wardrobe, but I do offer some great suggestions on what to bring or purchase as I know exactly what will make a gorgeous, dynamic photo! Do bring a variety of clothing, lingerie, shoes and jewellery/ accessories. This will help me work with you to create the best look for your photographs.

Boudoir – Lingerie

For a boudoir session, consider choosing more than one set of lingerie to get a variety of looks in your photographs. Lingerie can include bra and panty sets, a corset, teddy, chemise, camisole, garters, thigh high stockings and robes. While black is universally flattering and sexy, I encourage you to play with colour which will also give a great variety of looks to your final images.

For brides-to-be, consider bringing your favourite white lingerie, a veil and white garters to complete the bridal look.

Again, other items to bring include a variety of high heels, high boots, jewellery, scarves, hats and ties. If it’s a gift for your significant other, think about including a piece of their favourite apparel – shirt and tie or a sports jersey – they’ll love it!

I am a little uncomfortable about nudity

Nudity is certainly not necessary and I will not push you to go further than you feel comfortable with. Most of the nude photos are only implied nudity anyway. Meaning the image conveys the idea of nudity without revealing too much.

Sexy isn’t always about how much you show, it’s all about how you show it! Most men feel that leaving something to the imagination is much sexier than baring it all. Let me know what you are comfortable with at the beginning of the session, or even show me some examples so we can understand your comfort levels.

Sounds great … but I’m feeling nervous about my shoot!

Feeling nervous or self-conscious about having an intimate session? There’s no need worry, it’s natural to feel this way. I will guide you through each pose and know exactly which angles to capture for all body types to make you look like the beautiful woman you are.

You don’t need to know how to pose, you won’t have to do any performing and won’t be put on the spot. I’ll show you how to get those sexy poses and sultry looks. My sessions are designed to allow plenty of time to relax and feel comfortable which really shows in the final images.

So leave everything up to me … just relax and enjoy yourself !

I have a little problem area that I don’t like about my body – is there anything you can do?

Regardless of age or body type, I specialize in offering all women an incredible opportunity to commission their own personal collection of stunning, modern boudoir portraits. Flattering your best features, Rafael Photography provides you with something truly unique to show how beautiful you are. Every woman is very different and has something incredible to capture.

My advanced retouching includes skin perfecting, body contouring and feature enhancement. Every detail is covered from wrinkles to acne, scars, cellulite and stretch marks. You don’t have to worry about these little imperfections. I have everything covered.

If you have a particular problem area that you’re not happy with, let me know. My advanced posing techniques are designed to emphasize the positives and disguise problem areas. In addition I can perform a little “digital liposuction” in the retouching stage. I will not however completely change the shape of your body – after all, that just wouldn’t be you !

I’ve had my session – what a blast! When do I get to see my images?

I understand that many of my clients take the day off work for the photoshoot and for convenience I will schedule the purchasing session on the same day or the following week at a time that best suits you. This will save you having to take additional time off work. In that case the photoshoot takes place in the morning and you can come back 1.5 hours later to view the images and select your products.

Can I buy the Digital Files from my session?

Yes, certainly. You can purchase a collection of files from your session.

While I strongly encourage clients to get the photos printed, I also understand that some people may need the digital files for various purposes. Please let me know what you need the images for and I can make sure I can provide the best collection for you.
