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.
"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.."

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.
Sarah 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.

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!
"KAREN OVERCAME ALL MY NERVES, AND I REALISED AFTER A WHILE THAT I WAS LOVING THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE.."
“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 WAS INCREDIBLY NERVOUS AT FIRST, BUT SOON RELAXED AND HAD A BALL!”
"I REALLY DIDN'T THINK I COULD EVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS..BUT WITH THE HELP FROM KAZ, I AMAZED MYSELF!"
"I WAS SO NERVOUS AT FIRST, BUT BY THE END OF THE SESSION I WAS ON A HIGH. EVERY WOMAN SHOULD DO THIS AT LEAST ONCE IN THEIR LIFE."
Everything you need to know to get this DREAM session started.
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.
Hair and makeup are included in the retainer fee.
Jess Harle is an award winning make-up artist that owns and operates her own business.
WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
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!
