Hi I’m Sharon – a very experienced Lincolnshire Boudoir Photographer. Thank you for taking the time to read this – oh and this is an incredibly rare photo of me! (But I love it!)
I started in photography with an experience many you may have also had. I took my then 18 month year old son into a local Mothercare store for a set of “bargain” priced photos. Yes, you guessed it – he hated the experience and screamed the house down. However, being the doting mum, I bought all of the pictures anyway and realized I could have done better myself. I was off and running , went to college and got some training, and eventually created “Little Cherubs Professional Child Portraits”
For years I was doing strictly children portraits, but was being asked more and more to do wedding photography (you can see my Symply wedding photography site here ) – and then following some excellent mentoring by one of the top boudoir photographers in the country, I opened my home studio for boudoir photography.
Yes – it is in my home – I have three dedicated boudoir bedrooms, a studio and two golden retrievers who are strictly locked away during a shoot! The two cats Sabrina and Tabitha however can often sneak in without me knowing a has caught many a client out peeping from under a bed !
I vowed I wouldn’t do boudoir unless I could do it well – too often it looks sleazy or cheap but I’ve found my style now. It’s classy, elegant and sultry. Certainly my ladies LOVE my work! I thought initially it would be girls full of self confidence who would come to have their boudoir shots taken – but it isn’t.
It’s women like me and you -with body issues and self doubting and bizarrely who usually hate having their photo taken. (Why do you think I’m on this side of the camera!)
So I understand your reticence, and do my best to put you at ease. And yes – I’ve put myself in your shoes and been through the boudoir experience – I know how vulnerable you feel! I hate my tummy too (hence on the bed on my front shot!) Lots of fizz needed for this shot! As mentioned, I have been mentored, and taught by some of the top wedding and boudoir photographers in the country – Damian McGillicuddy, Trevor Yerbury, Brett Harkness, so I know my craft.
If you are looking for a female boudoir photographer who brings experience, humour and personality to all that she does, I won’t let you down – you will be thrilled with your photos if you choose me to take these very special portraits. Please have a look through my photos and give me a call if you want to have a chat!
