Before I had a studio, I used to shoot out of hotel rooms. This collection of images was taken at one of my most favourite hotel rooms, which I loved for it’s gorgeous natural light and architectural features. Jamilla’s choice of outfits and props for her session were well thought out and we had so much fun capturing these images of her! Here is Jamilla’s feedback from her boudoir experience:

Why did you decide that you wanted to do a boudoir session?

“To capture my pre-baby body and my features at the age of 30, and also a birthday pressie for myself for my milestone 30th birthday.”

What made you decide to hire Renee Lee as your photographer?

“It was the best website for boudoir photography in Adelaide. Your website answered all of the questions I needed answered before even making contact with you. The website looked very professional and had amazing examples of your work.”

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

“Nervous and excited! I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to pose how you needed me to pose. I hoped that the makeup would turn out alright. I hoped to be able to wear all of my ‘outfits’.”

Now that you’ve had your own boudoir shoot, how was it?

“AMAZING! Such a great experience. You made me feel sexy, empowered and special.”

What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?

“DO IT!!!!! Females these days are surrounded by such unrealistic expectations of what beauty is. Rock what you’ve got and your beauty will be captured in your boudoir shoot.”

How did you feel about having your hair and makeup done?

“Great! Pampered! Sexy! Beautiful!”

Any other thoughts or suggestions you’d like to tell me about?

“The use of Pinterest is a fantastic way to communicate ideas between you and your customers. You’re very quick with responding to emails and I imagine that you must get a lot of emails, so I really appreciated your quick responses. I also really appreciated your flexibility with payments. I was speechless when I received my album. You did an amazing job and I will highly recommend you to anyone who’s thinking of doing a boudoir shoot.”
