A little over a year ago I did a boudoir photo shoot in Bali. On Saturday I did another one with @boudoirbyclarkson and honestly I’m speechless with these photos.
The difference in over a year is honestly incredible; not just with the difference in my body after going to the gym but also my confidence.
I was afraid of being seen, I was so uncomfortable in myself, as a woman and in my body.
I feel so much more empowered in myself, my body and as a woman.
Every imperfection I have; every curve, every scar, every tattoo I have is my story and how beautiful I feel as a woman inside and out. I own my body and freaking love it no matter how curvy I am
As @asti.maree has said to me: I’m a boss ass Boujee empowered goddess 😏
If I can do this photo shoot as a curvy woman and own it like a boss then I know anyone can do it.
Massive love to @jezabelartistry for the hair and make up
@boudoirbyclarkson for the photos and to my girls @teesh_a5 @asti.maree @selfloveempower and @cassandraaaalee for all of the support and encouragement you sent me when I was a nervous wreck.
Having modelled or done a photoshoot before, I was pretty nervous going into this. Andrew from Boudoir By Clarkson made me feel so extremely comfortable and was so professional from the moment i contacted him! Ladies, if you ever want a “feel good” photoshoot, he is your man! After losing some weight I wanted to do something to show i was proud and confident of my body again and i can honestly say i came out of this shoot feel amazing!

Andrew is a true professional and talented artist. As a mum of two, I was apprehensive about doing a ‘boudoir shoot’ at first as I thought it may come off as a little raunchy or potentially tasteless but I was so wrong! Andrew made sure I was completely comfortable, invited me to a magnificent shoot location with a spectacular view where he arranged the furniture accordingly to make the most of the natural light and get the absolute best results before guiding me comfortably and professionally through poses that were flattering to my figure and features. The end result is some of the best photos I’ve seen of myself and have brought me a great deal of confidence in myself as a woman and a mother. I can’t recommend Andrew enough! He is a fabulous photographer and his communication and commitment to producing great art are second to none. Thank you so much Andrew and the team at Boudoir by Clarkson.
WOWWW 😱 the boudoir photoshoot with Andrew was way more than just a photoshoot. It was an EXPERIENCE, one which I’m grateful he encouraged and supported me in. One which I’ll never forget.. .
For many years I’ve been so uncomfortable in my own skin. I hated the way I looked and I hated the way I FELT. I was so ashamed of my body and severely lacked self worth and self love. And like many women, constantly compared myself to others and never felt “good enough”. Nobody should EVER feel like that and I want to be an example to girls to love themselves everyday, every way and at every angle. It’s been a journey learning to love myself and unlearning behaviours but each day I’m a bit closer to becoming the woman I was always meant to be. “I’m obsessed with becoming a woman comfortable in her own skin”.
When I learned about Andrews mission founded on creating self love and confidence among women I just had to get behind it, I love supporting others but I wanted to LOVE and SUPPORT me. I wanted to have something physical to look at and be PROUD of.
Admittedly, I never thought I’d do something like this and I was so nervous to start off with that I was actually shaking. Was way out of my comfort zone and I’ve never been so vulnerable and exposed. Well, half an hour in and I’ve never felt so comfortable and happy in my body and mind. I completely lost time and forgot I was even in lingerie. It was incredibly invigorating and EMPOWERING it’s truly something you can’t express in words.
Andrew is extremely talented, funny and remained professional throughout the entire shoot. I could really see he cares and is passionate about what he does.
Girls, especially those who struggle with confidence, I URGE you to do this. You’ll come out feeling like a brand new woman!!! Like the women you were always meant to feel like 💖 MISS E
Andrew is amazing! I’ve had over 50 photoshoots in my career and it has never been as comfortable and professional as Andrews. I had never been involved in a boudoir shoot before but was taken in by his previous shoots. I never would’ve been able to get the photos I had with any other photographer. Andrew is extremely talented. He was organised punctual and was able edit them and get them back to me so quickly. Then when I first saw the photos he had capture I was overwhelmed. I highly recommend Andrew – Boudoir Clarkson and believe he will Grow famously in the photography world. I can’t wait to shoot again and watch him grow in the future! MISS P
Well, where do I start…. From beginning to end Andrew shows nothing but complete enthusiasm to ensure your shoot is exactly what you want, if not more. His professionalism and general energy is one that makes you feel instantly at ease and in the right hands. With his love of natural lighting to his ability to understand the female form, he effortlessly combines the two in way that captures you like you have never seen before. I can’t speak highly enough of his talents and the delivery of prints. Do yourself a favour and book in before he books out. Boudoir by Clarkson is the epitome of perfection! MISS L
I had a photo shoot recently with Andrew and i have never done a boudoir or nude shoot before. It was honestly the most empowering and liberating experience. Andrew made me feel extremely comfortable and confident, giving me heaps of direction and showed consideration for my opinion on different poses and angles. I couldn’t recommend him enough to anyone, regardless of their modelling experience – he wont dissapoint! MISS E
I had a pretty crappy year this year and it was good to get some confidence back doing this shoot. I really enjoyed the entire experience. Andy made me feel so comfortable and helped capture exactly what I was looking for. MISS K
Andrew is such a talented photographer and wonderful person to shoot with, he kept the atmosphere light and friendly so i was super comfortable during the shoot. He helped me with posingand gave great direction and in return we created some truly beautiful images together. I would highly recommend Andrew and i hope to shoot with him again soon! MISS G
I’d like to thank Andrew for our recent boudoir shoot. He is very organised and professional, but can still have a laugh. He has great potential and very established already in what he is doing. I would recommend Andrew to anyone, he makes you feel comfortable and is very informative in regards to his process and receiving images in a timely manner. MISS M
Boudoir by Clarkson is amazing. I had not done many, if any shoots in lingerie before and I was made super comfortable. It was such a fun and creative experience. I learnt some pretty spectacular poses from Andrew.
He was also super friendly, easy going and great to get a long with.
Last but not least, I am actually in love with the outcome! I received so many beautiful photographs. Andrew got them back to me edited and all within 48 hours which is super rare for photographers (with my experience). I think some of the photographs may just be the best photos of me yet! He definitely has talent and knows his stuff – especially with good lighting and angles which is what you want! 🙂 MISS R
I highly commend Andrew for his professionalism, understanding of the most flattering poses. As a female, I felt completely comfortable and absolutely loved the results! Would highly recommend. MISS N
I had the pleasure of doing my first ever photoshoot with Andrew. No clue what I was doing or how, or even what to expect when I got there. He made everything super simple to understand. He explained absolutely everything and there was no such thing as a stupid question.
I always felt strange doing a photoshoot like this while in a relationship and having a male photographer but Andrew showed nothing but professionalism and even gave me ideas to surprise him with the images/using his own t-shirts and clothing for the shoot and turns out my partner loved them. I had my images back so quickly and Andrew was really understanding about my negative self body image and worked with me to get the best images possible without putting me in an uncomfortable situation.
Andrews now got me addicted to this new part of my life and I never wanted to show off my photos so much.
I will be shooting with Andrew again and again and again and again! MISS R
