A Boudoir Invitation





” I’d love to do a Boudoir shoot, but I am just not brave enough….”


I hear those words frequently from my brides and other women, who love the idea of having some beautiful, stylish images of themselves which are braver than a typical portrait shoot…. but just never pluck up the courage.

So next month I’m inviting you to a glamorous evening of pampering and lingerie browsing, to meet me and my team and find out how we can take you on a boudoir journey you’ll absolutely love. You can view our work, get expert advice, chat to us about the shoots, how they work what to expect, get advice on what to wear, on styling and make up, all whilst sipping champagne and viewing the latest seasons lingerie styles. Now whats not to love?

As women we convince ourselves we’re not good enough. We tell ourselves over and over that our bad bits outweigh anything positive about our bodies and those worries are often deeply entrenched.

Many women also associate the term Boudoir, with slightly tacky and even dare I say it, cheap and sleazy looking imagery…. the truth is, it doesn’t have to be like that at all.

My Sweet Reveal shoots are about celebrating you as a woman, they are designed to enhance every good bit about you,  fill you with confidence and leave you feeling empowered and inspired. I’m yet to work with a client who starts the shoot loving the camera, loving her body or is full of confidence, and yet by the end, time and again, women tell me they feel amazing, they are so proud of themselves and they LOVE how they look.





My style is romantic, it’s very editorial, it has a fashion edge and it’s all about making you look breath-takingly gorgeous, with no trace of tacky.

I work with the most incredible team to make sure you look every bit as amazing as you can.

Firstly Jayne Winn, my lingerie and styling expert, owner of Sheer Bliss in Knaresborough. Jayne is my go to person for all my boudoir clients, she can work with you to help you choose incredible lingerie to suit your shape and style, she can suggest ideas, accessories and colours. She’s incredible and should be your first port of call before the shoot.

Then comes the hugely talented Victoria Farr, of Victoria Farr make up and hair. Vicki is my right hand man for these shoots. She understands exactly what I try to achieve for the women I work with, she’s incredibly talented at creating looks which suit each client, and can whip up a hair storm in minutes. Vicki stays for the entire shoot, changing your look, reworking a style, touching up make up…. she’s there to give you confidence, and make sure you look utterly amazing for every click.

Finally I’m delighted to welcome Holly Miller to my trusted team, as a skin retoucher. Holly adds the final gloss to the images, once edited she looks in detail at skin tone and smoothness and works her incredible magic to ensure your skin is magazine worthy in every shot.  She’s a genius.

Then of course there’s me. A photographer with a devotion to all things stylish and glamorous, hugely influenced by fashion and the glossies, and a woman absolutely committed to creating emotive, evocative and ethereal images for my clients. I work with you from concept right through to delivery of your beautiful bespoke albums, framed images, print boxes and more. My shoots are relaxed and fun, easy going and challenging at the same time!






Here’s what some of my recent boudoir clients have said after their shoots;

“ I am genuinely shocked that I really love so many of my photos, and look forward now to putting together my own album just for me! I can’t thank you enough for making me look so amazing. I would never have done this without you and I know my husband to be will love the images we have chosen.”

“Oh My God !! Cat these are fab !!I could pick out loads !!!  don”t know where to start.. How many can I choose ? ”

“ Thank you so much for sending over the pictures! I am really pleased with them, there are so many nice ones I am not finding it easy to narrow all of them down! You have captured some great shapes and lovely light too. ”

So, perhaps you’d love to surprise your groom on the morning of your wedding with some stunning images of you, or maybe you’d just like to treat yourself to an amazing experience and photographs of you looking sensational?

Then come along to our Sweet Revel night hosted at The Sheer Bliss boutique on September 12th from 6pm-9pm, for champagne, advice, pampering, lingerie browsing and an insight into these wonderful shoots. Bring your bridesmaids, and come and see why this shoot can be liberating and not at all scary.

I guarantee you’ll love it and you’ll love the shoot even more….

We look forward to seeing you there.
