The Announcement You Weren’t Expecting

Sep 8, 2021 | Boudoir, Education, Personal Growth

Hello, gorgeous. I’ve been sitting on a secret for a few weeks now, it’s finally time to start telling people…

In November, I will be having surgery on a pretty large ganglion cyst that has developed around the tendon in my left (dominant) wrist. Affectionately called Joanna Lump-ley, she is the third of her kind and, as much as I’ve been pretending it’s no big deal, well… she’s causing me pain and therefore needs to go.

I will be off work from mid-November for 8 weeks (back mid-January) and I’m telling you all super early so you can claim dibs on my work diary before and after, including some extra special Boudoir Makeover Days and a long-awaited Photography Masterclass!

So, gorgeous, if you’ve been waiting for a sign to contact me, this really is it!

Read on for more details, how to claim one of my last two private client bookings (boudoir or personal branding) for 2021 and info on my last day in the office…

The Siren’s Virtual Boudoir Shoot


Now, I know it’s only September and any talk of the ‘C’ word is banned in my house until at least October, but I absolutely wanted an option in the diary to get some festive treats created for you before then.

Therefore, I have an extremely limited number of discounted Virtual Boudoir Shoots available – each includes a 90-minute confidence-boosting Virtual Boudoir Shoot with me, accompanied by 10 gorgeous images of you. You can also upgrade to 15 or 20 images with one of these add-on products.

Your edited images will be delivered to you by early November, ready to to fill your social media channels with festive joy… or perhaps to send as a treat to someone special over the holidays.

I’ve missed my annual Galentine’s (Valentine’s) boudoir shoot tradition, so for 2022 I’ll be back taking over London’s finest Art Deco bar Fontaine’s with my vintage makeover shoot sessions! 

On hand to style your hair into a pin-up starlet style will be my resident hairstylist Kate Roe, complemented by flawless vintage makeup from award-winning makeup artist Ms Moo Make Up.

You will then slip into your favourite outfit and spend an hour with me, Tigz Rice, capturing all your most flattering angles within the beautiful surroundings of Fontaine’s.



Why not join me for May instead! My Boudoir Makeover days are a great opportunity to experience the ‘Tigz Rice treatment’ at a fraction of the price! They are the perfect way to update your portfolio, shoot that new burlesque costume, or simply treat yourself – because you deserve it!

I’ve previously sold out Boudoir Makeover Days in a matter of hours, so don’t delay in booking your place! These makeover photoshoot dates will be announced publicly in 24 hours – but as you’re registered to my mailing list, you’ve got priority access to the dates to take your pick of the appointments…

Of course, don’t just take my word for it! Here’s a link to my portfolio of past clients, along with some wonderful interviews with a range of my past clients.

It’s finally back, gorgeous! We’re kicking off 2022 as we mean to go on! The Art Of Boudoir Photography Masterclass is perfect for you if you’re looking to add boudoir services to your repertoire of photography skills. Proving popular with seasoned portrait and wedding photographers who want to offer an additional service, the masterclass also attracts photography enthusiasts who are excited by the world of boudoir photography and want to experience a shoot under the guidance and support of a leading industry professional. Here’s a taster of what we got up to on a previous masterclass.



I have space for two final private bookings (boudoir or branding) in October, and my diary is now open for advance bookings for Monday 17th January onwards. Simply email me to book in.

Whew! I *think* that’s everything?!


I’ll be honest, I’m nervous about stepping away from the business for a good 8 weeks, but I know you’ll all look after each other and treat the wonderful Sali (who will be stepping in for me whilst I’m out of action) kindly whilst I recover.

Thank you all for your continued support. I love you all
