A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to shoot with Christa Durante in Bern in her superb studio le Boudoir.
For a while I had wanted to do a shoot with my perfect Pommie Sayuri, and this seemed like the
perfect place to do it!
My Pommie Sayuri
Christa was happy with this idea and we booked the shoot.
We arrived in Bern and found Christa's studio. She shoots from her house which fittingly is called boudoir, as everything is reminiscent of that. She has one room with a bed and dressing, and a whole room dedicated to make up and hair.
We prepped, she did my make-up and hair, and got to choosing the right outfits.I had taken a suitcase full of clothes and we decided on a pink and black dressing gown with a nightie, some pink and black lingerie, a sixties style dress a black nightie. If you don't have your own vintage wear, don't fret because she has the biggest collection of nighties and dressing gowns I have ever seen as well as other vintage wear
Prepping Make-Up, Hair and Clothes
This one doesn't need any prepping
So the whole experience was a great one. Christa is a real sweetheart and makes you feel comfortable, is great with dogs as she has two herself and is a genius at hair and make-up.
I highly recommend shooting with her her as their is a unique feel and ambiance to her studio.
I feel as though this was a new experience in exploring a new side to my femininity, a softer more romantic side. I was so excited to see the final result of these pics as not many people know this part of of me.
I love the fact I will have these memories with my sweetheart doggy as this year, she will be in my life for 10 years !
I received my pictures retouched exactly one week later in the mail on CD.
I'm happy I finally get to share them with you!
