What on Earth is Boudoir?

Boudoir!

HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

There are so many misconceptions about boudoir photography that I want to clear up before we get started...

LET'S GET STARTED, GOT IT?

NOW IT'S TIME TO SEE WHAT BOUDOIR REALLY IS... 

- Boudoir is for EVERY type of women.
- Numbers do NOT define you.
- You can NEVER lose your sexy, no matter what age you are! Trust me. 
- You don't need ANY type of experience at all.
- Women who invest in themselves, go further!
- Lastly, Be You. Do You. For You.

Before & Afters

I know what you're thinking- "These women are gorgeous. They're probably models who walk down the runaway every other weekend. They aren't just your average everyday-women that you see at your local supermarket."

 

BUT WHAT IF YOU'RE WRONG?
 

Well, you're actually half right/half wrong. These women ARE completely

gorgeous. That's a fact!

BUT THESE ARE 100% EVERYDAY-WOMEN. THESE ARE WIVES, MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS AND SO MUCH MORE! 

These strong women are your local school Mums, nurses, lawyers, doctors, teachers, hospitality owners, etc; these are everyday women who decided to treat themselves to so much more than just a manicure, pedi or a makeover.

It's okay to live a little, splurge a little, and feel drop dead gorgeous

every once in a while! 

 

A "LUXURY BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE" WITH KAREN EGAN

IS A STEP TOWARDS:

Appreciating your body NO MATTER what

Recognizing that you've NEVER lost your sexy. EVER. 

Documenting your beauty & growth even if you haven't hit your milestone!

Choosing to celebrate yourself for a change when you do hit that milestone, get the promotion, or turn 40, 50, 60+ years old. 

Remembering that you don't have to be so hard on yourself, we truly are our own worst critics.

About Me

Karen Egan

I've been a photographer in Melbourne, since going to school in Geelong a long time ago. My passion for taking images hasn't waned, and I still love seeing the looks on client's faces when they see their images for the first time.

I focus on Boudoir, and occasionally shoot portraits & weddings if asked, and when I travel I still love an awesome sky and landscape.

Jess is my main lady and is an incredible makeup artist and hair guru. She will really bring out your amazing beauty for me to photograph.

 

 
 
Love Notes...

Testimonials from REAL women like you & me

“I WAS BEYOND HAPPY WITH

HOW I LOOKED!”

I am so ecstatic and impressed by this whole experience. Karen did a phenomenal job with not only the photos, but the entire experience. Not only is she professional and detailed oriented but makes you feel comfortable. Sarah did a fabulous job with the makeup and hair as well, making sure that it went with the theme of the shoot. This was not only just a gift to the hubby but also a gift to myself!

“SHE DIDN'T MAKE ME FEEL NERVOUS AT ALL!

First Kaz is amazing! She did my second shoot about 3 weeks ago and it was awesome.

She didn’t make me feel nervous at all. It was all very natural!! She made it the funnest experience ever. I got my album in the mail yesterday and it looks fantastic. I wasn’t expecting it to come in so fast! I would definitely do it again, only with Kaz. She is awesome and a lot of my friends

are asking about her already!!!

I WANT TO BOOK A SHOOT, BUT I AM SO NERVOUS.
Everyone is nervous! It is normal! You will have a great time though and when you see your

gorgeous images, it will totally be worth it!
 

DO YOUR CLIENTS DO THEIR OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?
No, they don’t. I have a fabulous hair and makeup artist that works with me on every shoot.

The majority of our sessions take place in our home studio. We have multiple sets to choose from. Hair and makeup is done right on location (unless it is more convenient for you to go to our makeup artist’s spa). 
 

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU TELL ME

WHAT TO DO?
We will absolutely tell you how to pose and where to look.  

All you have to do is show up and have fun! Everyone is nervous! It is normal!

You will have a great time though and when you see your gorgeous images, it will totally be worth it!

YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER


Karen Egan

I am a full time boudoir photographer located in the Yarra Valley, north east of Melbourne, and have been for nearly 25 years.

Life has been hard in the past few years, after losing everything when my house burnt down, the divorce from hell, and losing my dad to cancer.

Things are starting to look up now, but I know how hard life can be at times, and that stuff gets thrown at us when we least expect it.

This is why I love my job, as I know I can make a difference to a person's self worth, and for one day make them feel like a rock star!


There is nothing more rewarding than making my clients feel as gorgeous and confident as they really are.

My favourite saying is -

Empowering Women Empower Women.
