Mademoiselle Chantell’s Boudoir shoot | The Cape Standard Guest House | Greenpoint


There is something so inspiring about doing a boudoir shoot for a woman that just exudes warmth and confidence.  Confidence is sexy….and it shows a strong belief and value in oneself.  Chantell and I had been chatting via email for many months, and she wanted to surprise her fiance with some photos before their wedding (which I’ll be blogging next week….can’t wait!!!).  She is one of the loveliest woman I have ever met, and has such  allure, I just wanted to hang out with her and be friends with her immediately!

I photographed Chantell’s boudoir shoot at the swanky, yet laid-back Cape Standard Guest House on a quiet street in Greenpoint, Cape Town.  Beautiful white rooms, each superbly designed…from beach house fusion to retro-chic…and close enough to all the hotspots in Cape Town.  I highly recommend for a playful weekend getaway….or for some chill time to get away from it all.

    Beautiful my friend, you are so talented! I’ve been thinking about how we tend to brush off our talents and not truly realize how gifted we are. Until we see something fresh and you realize, sjoe this is a God given talent. Very inspiring. Not just these images, but the process. The magic before you press the shutter. How you make people feel. Well done!!
