Sonia’s mission to transform women

We’ve all done it. Flicked through the pages of a glossy mag and wistfully wondered what those very talented photographers could do with us.

Well one local commercial photographer Sonia Harvey from Mandarin Creative Solutions is branching out and doing just that for local women.

Said Sonia, whose business is based in Blidworth: “Because of programmes like How to Look Good Naked I’ve decided to venture into the world of boudoir.”

“My aim is to transform women of all ages, shapes and sizes, and unleash the goddess inside - capturing beauty that will amaze and delight with stunning portraits that are timeless.”

Sonia and her team encourage their customers to talk to them about their inspirations, icons and fantasies and say their aim is to encourage women to leave their ordinary lives behind for a while to capture a moment in time to treasure forever.

Sonia works with professional make-up artist Sarah Vinter at Flawless Makeup Artistry. Sarah has extensive experience within the advertising industry and also works on catwalk shoots and theatre-based projects.

Bella Boudoir offers a number of packages including the Boudoir Bella Photoshoot - the ultimate pamper session perfect for age milestones, gifts for partners, model portfolios or a wedding day gift.

For women who don’t want to pose in lingerie, but still want a beautiful and more fashionable portrait, Sonia and her team will use clothing and props to achieve a custom shoot. Ideal for business profiles, personal gifts, birthdays etc. The team also offer Boudoir Bride, Boudoir Party for up to four friends and Boudoir Beauty which focuses on the make-up and styling.

Chad has teamed up with Boudoir Bella to give our readers a fantastic offer.
