Valentine’s Day shoots that will melt your heart
February is one of our busiest months of the year – and with good reason:Valentine’s Day. Love is everywhere in February, and we’ve had some photo shoots that have struck right in the feels!
Two years ago, Tamika came to our studio because she wanted to surprise her fiancé with something really special, so she had her very own boudoir photo shoot and left with a photobook which she was hoping to give to him on their wedding day (Naww!).
Then, the day after Valentine’s Day, Tamika came back, and this time she brought her husband with her so that they could commemorate their relationship, which was still going strong. They had had beautiful photos taken at their wedding, but she felt that she wanted something that really captured their every-day love.
“I remember I enjoyed my photo shoot so much, that when I left I had already decided that I wanted to come back with Owen to get photos done together”
Being a repeat offender, Tamika knew what to expect, and better still – as a hairdresser with her own salon, she came with picture perfect hair (best client ever). Her partner Owen, however, wasn’t quite as excited at the beginning of the photo shoot, but luckily, our photographer Alice is there to make it fun!
“He ended up really enjoying himself actually, I think you just think it’s going to be really awkward and boring, but Alice made it a lot of fun and I could see how relaxed he was”
Alice took lots of different images during the shoot, including some individual portraits for each of them to have of each other, including Tamika’s favourite photos of Owen. After all, when you marry the love of your life, it’s because you love them as an individual as well as how they make you feel when you’re together. And Isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?
“Honestly, he’s just the best. If I think about what I love most about Owen, it’s that, when it comes down to it he protects me and he’s always there for me”
Turns out, after snuggling up together in our cinema room to view their photos, Owen was just as enamoured with their shoot as she was, so much so that he ended up picking the photo that they’re having created into a beautiful, acrylic wall piece for their home.
As for Valentine’s Day itself, we had an unexpected treat which came in the form of Renee; a beautiful single mum of three children, and an absolute inspiration to womankind.
Having lost forty kilos, and never getting much opportunity to do anything for herself, she decided that there was only one person she was going to tell she loved on Valentine’s day, and that was herself, and we’re definitely advocates for that!
Like many women (mum’s in particular), Renee had always been somewhat body conscious. Even after losing a significant amount of weight running after her kids and kicking in some new, healthy habits, she still felt that she wasn’t seeing the person she wanted to.
Luckily, in our studio, no woman, no matter what age, weight or height she is, will have her beauty found and captured forever for her to see.
“I wanted to improve my self-esteem… I never do anything for myself, so for Valentine’s Day I thought I would do something just for me”
Because Renee was one of our lucky Facebook prize winners, she also had a makeover included as part of her luxury photo shoot package, so we got to pamper her a little bit before the shoot, something that EVERY mum deserves. We like to create an environment where women can feel relaxed and take care of, which is why when it came to the shoot itself, Renee could just switch off while our photographer guided and posed her to bring out her inner and outer beauty.
I was a bit nervous at first, but I had a great time. The photographer was so down to Earth, I was made to feel so comfortable and reassured the whole way through”
By the time Renee was dressed back into something a little more comfortable, we had a beautiful slideshow, a comfortable couch and complimentary beverage waiting for her. Needless to say, it was an absolutely gorgeous photo shoot, and we’re thrilled that Renee fell in love with herself and had so many favourites.
