When I first had the appointment I did feel, a little overwhelmed and nervous as I had just had a bubby 4 weeks prior. I was worried about my baby weight ect and I wasnt 100% sure what a boudoir photo shot was. What sort of clothes ect.
However the second I walked into the studio all of the anxiety and fear vanished. I was so relaxed and felt very welcomed. There was so much I liked about the whole experience it would be hard to pin point just one thing. But if I had to choose. The atmosphere, you ladies made the whole experience so amazing. We had a laugh and a giggle and I felt so comfortable and welcomed. The directions were clear and you ladies made me feel comfortable in my body. After the photo shot I felt amazing, glamorous… to be honest I was a bit upset it was all over hahaha.
When I went to view my photos… I wasnt sure what to expect. But I was amazed at the end product. They were so much more beautiful then I could ever have imagined. The word beautiful to me is inner confidence. And you girls made me feel confident and sexy. it doesnt matter what size you are, if you show confidence in yourself and your body you can be the sexiest girl in the room. To me the most beautiful celebrity would be beyonce. She isnt a stick, she has the most amazing curves, she knows her body type and she flaunts it. But most of all she is confident, yet she appears to be humble and well conducted. You never see any negative press which in the celebrity world I am sure would be a tough act to pull off. The most beautiful woman in my life. I have way too many to list. My mother, sisters, my friends the list goes on. Each has a unique reason as to why they are beautiful but beautiful all the same. I would and already have recommended cherish you photography to my family, friends and other mummies looking to pamper themselves. I cant thankyou you girls enough. Amazing experience.
And I am already asking my hubby to be for a gift voucher for another session!!
Thank you so very much for the most wonderful and uplifting experience of my life. I had never had glamour/professional photo’s taken before and didn’t know what to expect. I was so nervous but so very excited. I saw images of friend who had a session done and was so inspired by her beauty that I wanted this experience to. My 40th birthday was coming up and I had lost some weight so I decided; why not, time to embrace ME!! Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to look and feel as beautiful and as glamorous as I do in my photos. You made me feel so comfortable, it was awesome being a princess for the day. I had so much fun and I didn’t want the session to end. It truly was empowering. I love my photos and so do my family & friends, but especially my partner Dave. I gave him a little black book of my photos as a surprise for his birthday and boy did he love them. I would highly recommend the experience; ladies you will not be disappointed. I will certainly do it again. Regards Mel xx
Trish talks about her Glamour Photography Experience in Mackay.
“Thanks for my experience on Friday. I have never had glamour photographs taken before and was at first quite nervous and not knowing at all what to expect. I was also concerned and worried that I was not going to do the ‘right thing’ to allow you to take beautiful photos of myself. Although nervous at first and feeling a little awkward and well out of my comfort those feelings disappeared and you made me feel comfortable, always with the most positive remarks and comments. Thank you for the experience, I enjoyed it and will certainly mention it to others. I’m quite excited to see the photos!!!!”
A Beautiful Boudoir Photography Session With An Longtime and Wonderful Friend
“I have known Cheryl and Sue for many (many) years and have shared many a special moment with them. This aside they are two of the most caring and thoughtful individuals I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I have always hated having my photo taken and am usually the one trying to hide behind something/someone. “Getting my kit off” has never been up there on my things to do list as all my life I have suffered from very low self esteem. From the moment I arrived at the studio I was made to feel so at ease. These ladies made me feel just so good about myself and I don’t think I stopped smiling and laughing the whole time I was there. It truly was the most enlightening and liberating experience and I urge everyone to just give it ago. My photos are amazing. I look good, bloody sexy even Isn’t it amazing how you can see yourself so totally different until the images are right there in front of you. My wonderful husband said he fell in love all over again. This has given me such a boost to my confidence I thank you so very much.”
Husband buys Wife A Glamour Session with Mackay Photographers, Cherish You Portraits.
“My husband started it off with a surprise present for our wedding anniversary, Getting ready for my shoot was quite exciting, he helped me by making suggestions on which outfits, Jewelery and accessories that I might use. I was really looking forward to the hair and makeup session. I have always enjoyed dressing up so this was the ultimate gift for me. At the studio Cheryl and Sue were fun to be with and had me feeling like a model, all the different poses and outfit changes, I was really eager to see the end results. The photos are beautiful, I tell every one who sees them what a great experience it is and would highly recommend it.”
Chantelle received a Glamour and Boudoir Photography Package as a gift from her Mother.
Alya Contacted Mackay Photographers Cherish You Portraits for Boudoir Photography as a Suprise for her man.
“Before the session my main concern was how the photos would turn out, I’ve never really been able to fully become confident in my own skin and as a result I have never associated myself with the words ‘Elegant’ or ‘Beautiful’. As the day got started both Cheryl and Sue made me feel so comfortable and made the experience incredibly enjoyable, so much so that I forgot all about my worries and just had fun, they truly did make me feel beautiful. When I got to see my photos I was once again back to being nervous, but I was immediately blown away with how well the photo’s turned out! Cheryl, Sue and the fantastic hair and makeup team transformed me into what I believe to be the definition of’Elegant’ and ‘Beautiful’. I cannot put into words how much that meant to me; you gave me the gift of self confidence.”
Sabine was one of our very first Boudoir Photography Clients in Mackay. I think I was more nervous than Sabine, but we ended up having a ball!
Hi Cheryl! I was a little nervous but more like butterflies, before the shoot. Things like, how am I going to “pose”, what am I supposed to do, can I pull this off… But as soon as we got going it was all just fun and FUN. I enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish!! It surprised me that during the whole time I didnt even think about what I was nervous about in the beginning. Time just flew! On What Beauty Means to You For me beautiful is when someone is completely at peace with themself and happy for who they are and dont mind what other people “might” think. Which celebrity do you regard as beautiful & why? Jessica Alba, she seem to have a good balance between her self, family, work, beeing healthy, the press and so on. She seem real! Who is the most beautiful woman in your life? My mom, she is the best! Would you recommend a photo shoot to your friends & family & if so, why? Absolutely, Cheryl is just the right person for this job. Standing in front of a camera isn’t always very comfortable but with Cheryl you forget that she is even taking photos, which makes up for really good photos capturing the moment and the real you. You are just having a really good time! I would definitely do it again!!
It was our pleasure to photograph Vicky and Jorja, a wonderful Mother and Daughter Session, combined with Glamour Photography for each. So much Fun!
“A couple of weeks ago, my daughter and I had the absolute pleasure of a photoshoot with Cherish You Portraits. From the moment we walked in the door, we were made to feel like old friends and were warmly welcomed. Our hair and make up was professionally done and we were amazed with the results. The studio is amazing, with gorgeous props, outfits, shoes and jewellery. It was a day full of,fun and laughter while dressing up in gorgeous clothes. Cheryl, our photographer was amazing and patient (as experienced supermodels we were not). We viewed the photos last night and were overwhelmed at how wonderful we looked. I usually hate photos of myself, but there was not one photo I did not like. In fact, I loved them all so much, that I had trouble deciding which ones to enlarge and frame. Our Mother/Daughter shots were absolutely gorgeous and a box of tissues was close by when we saw the results of Cheryl’s expertise. I have absolutely no hesitation in singing Cheryl and Sue’s praises. Truly wonderful women, empowering others by giving them the experience of a lifetime and the gift of beautiful art as well. If you are considering getting glamour photos done, I would highly recommend you give Cheryl from ‘Cherish You Portraits’ a call. You won’t find better… .”
Cate experienced a Boudoir Session here in Mackay, nervous at first, we soon had Cate relaxed and together we produced some amazing photography…
Before the session I was very nervous as there are parts of my body that aren’t so pretty and even when I got there I was still nervous. But after I met Cheryl and Sue, they made me feel very relaxed with a hug and conversation. During the whole make up and shoot I felt just amazeing I think because I was made to feel it was just about ‘me’ for a change and not everyone else and that surprised me as I am really not that vain. There are a few women who I admire and they aren’t celerbities, one is Rita Jackson and the other is Ella Stiller. It seems that no matter what they do and they both work hard they are able to look fresh,beautiful, confident and in control. Upon leaveing my session, I was amazed at how I felt and I felt great, not just because of the make but how I felt as a woman. I would highly recommend Cherish you portraits as the ladies are very understanding, cheeky, beautiful and your made to feel special and amazeing. Thank you Cheryl and Sue for an experience I will treasure.
Petrina came to Cherish You Portraits for a Boudoir Photography Session for images for her partner, she didn’t realize what effect have the images presented would have on her… read more below …
“On the day of my photoshoot I was somewhat nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. The nerves disappeared quickly as Cheryl and Sue made me feel so comfortable. These ladies taught me that I am beautiful and girly. When I seen my images for the first time it made me cry.I love the images and so does my partner. Thank you ladies for giving me my feminine mojo back.”
Kathryn roped her hubby into doing a Couple Photography Session to Celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversay, Hubby was then sent home whilst we carried on with a Boudoir Photography Session as a surprise gift for Andrew.. by all accounts he was absolutely wrapped in the images :-). Kathryn talks of her experience below…
I was excited more than nervous to be getting our couples and my boudoir photo shoot done. It was the perfect time to have photos done to capture a special time in our lives and the love and joy we have created together over the past 25 years. I wanted to get the boudoir photos as a special gift to my husband but I have got so much out of the experience myself. Andrew and I were both made to feel special and comfortable during our session and it was more fun and relaxing than I thought it would be and I love that the photos captured our relationship so beautifully and it was hard choosing our favourite one to order in large size for our wall. The boudoir experience is something I will always remember as I felt like a movie star with my hair and make up done and Cheryl and Sue made me feel so relaxed and beautiful and when I saw the photos at the viewing I was overwhelmed by how the photos have captured the beauty I felt inside but did not see when I looked in the mirror. I feel so much more confident and less critical of myself now and my husband’s emotional reaction on seeing the photos is something I’ll cherish forever.
I would highly recommend the experience for every woman as it’s so wonderful and empowering to see beautiful images of yourself and a truly personal gift for yourself or partner. My family will be giving my sister a gift voucher from Cherish You Portraits for her 40th birthday next year as I want her to feel beautiful about herself and capture a milestone in her life.
Thank you Cheryl and Sue for the love and care you showed us and for a wonderful experience and beautiful photos.”
