Beautiful Robyn | Styled Boudoir Shoot | Brenaissance

This glorious shoot came about as the result of my dear (incredibly talented!) friend Merlene & me dreaming about beauty over a coffee date :) Winter is a slower time for the wedding industry, which leaves us creatives time to play with different looks, different styles and have some fun :) Between the two of us we came up with a concept for two looks - light & innocent vs. dark & sultry - with an emphasis on celebrating feminine beauty :) We were fortunate enough to find the PERFECT lady for the job - the utterly stunning Robyn :) Ida was the lovely lady who so brilliantly styled Robyn's hair - seriously, Ida & Merlene were beauty machines on the day :) I didn't think it was possible for Robz to look any more beautiful than she does already, but here's the proof ;) She's one of those stunning-inside-and-outside radiant women who just make you want to smile :)

A boudoir shoot is such a beautiful way to celebrate your femininity as a woman - with the added bonus of being a pretty amazing gift for the special man in your life :) As ladies we tend to be so critical of ourselves - most especially our bodies! Even the most beautiful woman will tend to point out her 'flaws' if given half a chance. It's a real gift to be shown your beauty through someone else's eyes, and to have that celebrated wholeheartedly :)

The shoot take place at the absolutely stunning Brenaissance in Stellenbosch, which provided the perfect backdrop for the different looks we were going for - photography heaven ;) It was an absolute dream working with these 3 lovely ladies!!! :)

The Dream Team
Make up: Merlene Joy
Hair: Ida Webster
Venue: Brenaissance

PS. if you're wondering where the exquisite gowns are from, the floor-length white one was custom-made for me by Magda Grove, and the beautiful short back one is by Lace Blossom.

I had this crazy idea to make a bouquet out of winter twigs and spray it gold - am so happy with the result! Seriously, if I was getting married again I'd carry this down the aisle ;)

 This lady - beautiful beyond measure!

Those sea-green eyes - simply breathtaking :)

 Looooove this :)

 So freaking graceful!

 We then totally switched it up with a very dramatic, glamorous hair & makeup change, combining it with darker colors & some attitude from Robz :)

 Ooh glamour!

 Some fierce-ness ;)

 So so beautiful!
 Ida ties a mean bow by the way, along with reflecting like a pro!

 Um perfection much?!

 Gak love this!

  1. wow! I don't think she has a single flaw. What a beauty. I much prefer the first shoot, with the white, she looks natural, soft and gorgeous. While still gorgeous in the second shoot of course! Stunning photography and a stunning model.
