ALL ABOUT US, YOUR EXPERIENCE & THE PROCESS!
About Your Photographer
Hi, I'm Malin!
I am the founder of Willow Branch Photography and full time boudoir photographer. I specialise in classy boudoir photography for women who want tasteful images and a confidence boosting experience to help them feel empowered, or to use as a unique gift for their partner. I have over 12 years of experience in boudoir photography and a bachelor degree in photography from Griffith University.
Boudoir photography is my absolute passion and I find it incredibly rewarding! Working with women from all walks of life is so interesting and I love making people feel beautiful. When you meet me you’ll probably wonder where my accent is from; I’m originally from Norway but have lived 15 years in Australia. I’m a natural redhead and that translucently pale person that blends in with the sand at the beach (hello SPF 50+). I have two beautiful little boys and a super supportive husband (who is also a photographer), as well as a fluffy white dog!
How it Works
My goal is for you to feel comfortable and beautiful and have fun throughout the whole process, and to walk away with a collection of photos that makes you feel confident and sexy.
When you arrive at the Studio
When you arrive for your session, your experience will start with a cold bottle of fresh water while you are having your hair and makeup done. Our residential studio is comfortable and air conditioned; heated in winter and cool in summer. It’s decked out with beautiful furniture and props to use for your session, music is always playing softly in the background while getting your makeup done and while shooting, and we have beautiful samples of our products on display for you to check out.
Makeup & Hair
Hair and makeup is always included in your boudoir session because our awesome team of makeup artists are professionals with years of experience, and you deserve nothing but the best. Whether you want to keep it natural or go full glam, our makeup artists are here to make it all happen. So you can sit back and get pampered while the experts perform your makeover, and you KNOW you’ll look amazing! Before we start, we discuss what kind of makeup you normally wear and what you are comfortable with, we chat about the look you want to achieve and go through the outfits that you’ve chosen for your session, and then we make it all come together.
If you don’t have your own outfits, or you need some styling advice, I’ve got you covered! We have a full closet of luxury lingerie and accessories for you to choose from, ranging in colours and styles, and sizes from XS-XXXL.
Once you are all glammed up we start shooting! Naturally, almost everyone is nervous at first – you are after all getting in your lingerie in front of a complete stranger – we totally get it! But rest assured, Malin has years of experience in posing people of EVERY body shape, size and age in a way that makes them look their best. If you are a bit insecure about how the photos are turning out when we start the shoot, we will happily show you some sneak peeks on the back of the camera just to prove to you that you are indeed looking fabulous!
The Product Viewing
Directly after your session we will go through the image collections with you and show you all the products that are available in the collections! You will probably have an idea of what you want before the day, but there is nothing better than to see, hold and touch the actual products before you finalise you decisions!
After your session
Once you get home and are still revelling in your amazing experience, your proofs will be ready to view within 24 hours. We will send you a link to a private password protected viewing gallery where you can go through the images in your own time and select your favourites. If your collection includes an album or wall art, we will discuss which photos you would like to use for your products. It takes 2 weeks (from the time you make your selection) for us to edit your images and send you the finished digital photos, and it takes 2-6 weeks to receive your physical products such as albums and wall art.
