Miss M. Photo Shoot

with No Comments

“…the photos Valois creates makes you feel and rediscover yourself the most beautiful woman on earth.”

Miss M’s words.

Miss M. was shy at first, but I could see already in her eyes the powerful woman I was about to photograph and

I WAS RIGHT!!

She has the power of making cry every time she writes something to me. She has a gift with words (Portuguese – Hope I didn’t ruin it with my translation) always so sweet.

Miss M. makes me feel like #spreadingthelove all over.

Another powerful woman that will stay forever in my heart.

Miss T. Boudoir Experience

with No Comments

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” “Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”

This quote is translates Miss T.’s life. She is a free soul and it got me thinking….

Why does society always dictate how we should act, how we should think, how we should look, how how how… ???

Meeting women like Miss T. shows me the choices I made in life that brought me to this moment were for sure the best ones.

My life and my business are both going against the wave and I love that I am helping more and more women to FREE from what society says, I am glad I am helping more and more women TO BE and LOVE who they are.

Thanks Miss T. for reminding why I do what I do!

[contradictions of life]

Unfortunately to be able to show my work and keep helping women to find their own way ..

I need to follow some rules.. I hate having to add little hearts to hide something so natural.

I dream of a society that sees nudity part of life without sexualizing it.

Miss H. Boudoir Experience

Fear?! This word does not exist in Miss H.’s vocabulary.

A very calm woman but you can see her strength by looking at her eyes.

Miss B.’s Boudoir Photo Shoot

I love photographing women, but photographing a fellow photographer is extra special.

Miss B. love photography but have never done something like this. She wanted to have the experience to see how it feel in front of the camera ( ..and obviously to have nice photos of herself)

blog_3

Miss B. was a bit shy but during the make up she started to feel more and more confident. During the photo shoot she felt very comfortable.

We had 3 outfits during the photo shoot but here I will only show 2 of them.

Miss M. is a quite and shy woman, but when you talk to her a bit more you realise that she is actually a very strong and powerful woman.

Nothing much needed to show her beauty. No make up, no hair styling, just come comfy lingerie and a pair of stalkings.

Last year I had the pleasure to photograph 2 beautiful girls for the Peter Mark Colour Trophy Competition. My photos helped the girls from the Blanchardstown branch to go to the finals.

Look at the hair, the colors. The girls from the Blanchardstown branch are amazing!!! Very creative and professional. I highly recommend .. if you want to get something done on your hair.. go to Peter Mark Blanchardstown branch.

This year they gave me the pleasure to photograph their girl again and I just got the news .. they got through to the finals again! 😀 I am so happy!!!!

Sheena, Lorraine and Ray thank you so much for choosing me again to be your photographer. Thanks for the trust!

Natural Light Boudoir Session

with No Comments

Natural Light Boudoir Session – NO Photoshop – and

a beautiful surprise in the end.

The make up was done by my dear friend Camila Dantas (Kay)

Kay decided to go for a very natural look for the first 2 outfits and on the 3rd, black one, she decided to go for a red, strong lips, which looks amazing on our girl.

We decided to start with a very casual and simple outfit, so she would feel comfortable in front of the camera before we changed to a lingerie outfit.

To loosen up a little bit, and celebrate the experience, she enjoyed a little glass of Pinot Grigio and I thought it was great prop for our session.

She is not a model but she was very natural and took directions very well.

The natural light was beautiful that day and I just had to use a white reflector in front of her to lighten up her face.

I love capturing moments like this. For me this image really describes the feeling of our session. I had a lot of fun photographing her.

For the second outfit we got a beautiful corset. I was quite pleased with the natural light hitting her beautiful hair. I also had a white reflector in front of her to bring light to her face.

When we changed to the 3rd outfit, the black corset, I decided to play a bit and she totally went for it.

After all the craziness I caught her hugging herself and for me it really says how much this girl loves herself and is happy with who she is. We all should act like her.. #loveyourself #beyourself

To finish the session (I thought it was the end) we got some bed poses, which are the most asked poses from everyone that comes to my home studio.

BUT, she had a little surprise on her sleeves… She got very brave and decided to get Topless. I was quite happy she felt so comfortable in front of my lenses. Quickly I directed her to this pose to show off her beautiful tattoo and to make her more relaxed I asked her to play with her hair, which looks beautiful and ads some movement to the photo.

*She authorized me to use all the photos, including the two last ones.
