Fi Rooney - Best dressed competition winner!

The delightful Fi Rooney was in to us for her shoot after dressing up in full lion attire at the Dirty Circus Night circus extravaganza before the christmas. It was such a fun night at the big top with so many fabulous entertainers - they really manage to bring some sparkle and Cabaret style to Galway which is what we love so much.  It's a great excuse to dress up have a bit of fun and be entertained.
The next one is taking place on Feb 13th if anyone is around the town check it out!

Fi is a stunning red head with lots of unusual circus skills check out her page here Fi Rooney /Entertainer to catch up with her and see photos of her pole, ariel, hoop and burlesque preformances. Anyone wishing to contact her for bookings:
Fi is setting up a website so wanted to have a few images that she can use for this in a pin-up style and also some showgirl style ones to get a run out of her amazing red sparkly dress. (jessica rabbit eat your heart out!)
We couldn't help but get carried away with another set and managed to squeeze in a bath tub pin-up and santa look aswell.
Check out some sneak peeks:

Fiona Coyne 60's Makeup shoot

Having worked with Fiona on a few occasions on various shoots  I had always wanted to get her on the other side of the lens. Like myself it can take some persuasion once you are used to hiding behind the scenes!! For the launch of her new makeup page we created some images to showcase a nice 60's look that is wearable but not too OTT. We also got to show off her beautiful petticoat (which got a day out for her hen party) She was like a wee Doll!
A few bridal accessories and the look was complete .. we took our inspiration from the stunning 'Style me pretty' blog , simple , elegant and a little whimsical!
Fiona has kindly shared her favourite makeup products used on this shoot with us!
Lisa Walsh of Lisa's hair Emporium got to work on Fiona's tresses that day giving her that 60's bouffant and some soft curls. It looked amazing.

Temptu airbrush make up using Ivory foundation, 
Peony Pink blush and Warm glow bronzer and pink pearl highlighter. Creating a flawless airbrush finish with all day lasting power that is perfect for parties, weddings and special occasions.
Illamasqua precision gel liner in 'infinity'. It's ultra smooth and creates pristine lines for the 60's inspired look.
Lime Crime is fast becoming one of her fav lipsticks. So many colours,  so little time!! Fiona used 'Airborne Unicorn' from their 6th anniversary edition.
And of course Hi Brow kits for super defined brows and 24hr semi permanent powder available @Heaven Scent.
Fiona loves everything Whimsical,  fairy like with an angelic touch! Her moto is to see Beauty in Everything and Everyone.

Shir Madness the amazing Hoop girl!

I first witnessed the stunning  Shir Madness while attending one of the many Dirty Circus events in Galway. I highly recommend it for a fun night out if you are looking for something different. I remember thinking how the hell does she do that ! This girl has a great talent for balancing and performing with Hoops and still managing to look sexy!  She has also been around the world performing at various events . Closer to home she has been performing at the Jerry Fish and the electric sideshow for over a year now, a feast for the eyes and the senses!
Originally from France Shir has made Ireland her home and continues to wow audiences around the country. I foresee big things in her future.

We had a lovely photoshoot recently to showcase both her talent and also to present the new 'Showgirl' boudoir session that is available with ourselves at Boudoir Girls . A fun alternative to the usual boudoir sessions..' every girl gets to be a showgirl for an afternoon'!  We also provide photoshoots for performers of circus and burlesque should you need some quirky images for online use.

John Denton Workshop

I've been a bit behind on my blogging of late. As with all of us photographers shooting is the fun part! Speaking of fun and shooting I had the pleasure of traveling up to Moate in August where Ken Byrne and his partner Aine (now fiance! congrats guys! ) was hosting a fashion /fine art workshop by the amazing John Denton.
I travelled up with John Mc Mahon and got to meet some lovely local photographers and shoot the fabulous model Devon who travelled over with John for the occasion from the UK.
We had a lovely time wandering around the fabulous grounds and shooting in the house itself. Devon managed to pose her way through the day for us no complaints fair play! I was feeling for her as its no simple task holding poised positions for hours on end. Thankfully the weather was pretty mild! 
We went through new techniques with posing and lighting and it was done in a lighthearted fun manner which I really liked. 
Big thanks to everyone involved really enjoyed the day and would highly recommend John's Workshops to anyone SWPP member or not. Links below :))

Bridal Boudoir Packages

The beautiful Katherine Gannon modeled on this to help us showcase some of our new sets available for our new bridal boudoir session package . We will be doing another blog post on Katherine soon from her swimwear session with us. Exciting times ahead for this lady..and none more deserving as she is such a hard worker and a pure dote. Beautiful makeup by Sarah Holleran MUA check out her FB page here

Here is a little info about our bridal boudoir package:

As boudoir sessions are more often a private affair and surprise for 'himself' before the wedding or  a christmas present , I rarely get to show the stunning teachers, solicitors and housewives that come through my door for these portraits. So very understandable as not everyone is content with being online in their smalls! I have to stress that only images with permission are ever shown online so you never have to worry ladies!! We also take plenty of headshots in a session incase you do feel like showing off your beautiful face or having some nice facebook profile images.

Whatever your shape or size we can cater for your needs and tastes. We love shooting plus size girls every bit as much as we shoot skinny girls prejudice here and you will get help with posing for any areas you may not be completely comfortable with. For cellulite , blemishes and stretch marks we offer retouching should you want it but it is an entirely personal choice. We promote beauty in any shape and form and if you prefer yourself with a little retouching then who are we to judge?

Here at 'Boudoir Girls' we have a large selection of lingerie you can wade through from the bridal looks shown to more nude soft colors -we encourage you to think about and research the looks you like for  your shoot so that we can nail your vision and create something special for you specifically! Bring your favorite heels and lingerie and feel empowered after a fun session with us. I always describe it like the buzz of getting ready for a fun girly night out!

If the softer look is not for you then the more fun options can work too eg. superhero, geek, outdoor, themed or just tasteful simple images of yourself to treasure forever.

Call us to book an appointment before christmas to ensure your book is ready on time. We require 2 weeks to complete the books but can prioritize for you if there is any urgency.
