During my photoshoot in San Mark’s Square in Venice, this Venetian gentleman was walking by and I asked for a photo. He said, yes and quickly got into position, then put his cigar on his mouth and his stick under his arm and looked at me. I took 4 photos and it was just super quick. I was nervous and hoping my settings on the camera weren’t overexposed or wrong because I knew I had only a few seconds. But thankfully it was fine. I thanked him and he walked away. The next day I saw him around the same time walking in the same area, looking super elegant like before, probably going to get his breakfast somewhere while enjoying the views of his magnificent hometown. Venice is one of those places you will never get tired of the view. I thought he looked absolutely amazing and I was really nervous in case he said no. But you never know until you ask. This photo is something I really love because it shows this gentleman’s class, confidence and beauty in the most natural way. Makes me feel nostalgic about my grandparents and wishing I had them close to take some epic images of them and who they are.

This is why people need to exist in photos. I wish I could track him down again and gift this to him or his loved ones.

If you happen to know him or is in Venice. I saw him on St Mark’s Square around 7AM going towards the Grand canal. I’d love to get in touch.

Eleven reasons on why you need a professional photoshoot

Before and After Photoshop by Roberta Montagnini

Eleven reasons on why you need a professional photoshoot?

A high-end magazine caliber photoshoot can be overwhelming if you start wondering that it is only for people with prior experience or for the rich and famous. Let me tell you that a photoshoot is for everyone, for all walks of life, for people of all age, body shape and ethnicity.

A photoshoot is an empowering and transformative experience and I came up with eleven reasons on why you need to have a photoshoot:

  • Because you are amazing and deserve to have a stunning photo of yourself.
  • Because you should come first and love yourself first so that you can love others and there’s no better way to eternalise who you are today than by having your dream photoshoot experience
  • Because  you should exist in photos for you, for your family, your friends and your children you may not think about this today, but one day your children will look for photos of you, and what will they find?
  • Because time goes by so freaking fast and it would be so sad to realise you have no physical memories to look back
  • Because you want to see yourself like never before and a photoshoot is a wonderful way to document how incredibly beautiful you are right now.
  • Because your phone is loaded with 3 million selfies and none of them are how you would love to be photographed.
  • Because regardless of your age, ethnicity or body shape you are absolutely worth it!
  • Because you’ve lost someone you love and regret not having beautiful photographs of them and with them.
  • Because you love your (children, mother, father, partner, friends) and you want to have an unforgettable experience with the ones that matter the most.
  • Because all that money you spend on clothes and make up making yourself prettier needs to be documented somewhere, and what is best than having legacy images of yourself to tell your own story?
  • But most of all, because you’ve given way too many excuses and the day of tomorrow never comes

I’d love to personally invite you to this wonderful photoshoot experience and explain all the fine details in person with you. Your photoshoot will be designed to suit your style and desires.

Reasons you should do a boudoir photoshoot

Boudoir photography is an incredibly elegant and one of a kind style of photography. It’s the most intimate and self revealing way to show how awesomely beautiful you are.

It’s the perfect gift for women to celebrate themselves and a one of a kind experience.


A boudoir (/ˈbuːd.wɑːr/; French: [bu.dwaʁ]) is a woman’s private sitting room or salon in a furnished accommodation usually between the dining room and the bedroom, but can also refer to a woman’s private bedroom. The term derives from the French verb bouder to sulk, or boudeur sulk or sulking, and originally was a room for sulking in, to put away or withdraw to.

There are times when you are just looking for the perfect fun and sexy gift for your significant other, or perhaps you just want to celebrate feeling good about yourself. Whatever the reasons that brought you to this page, perhaps because your were looking for a “boudoir photographer near me” or just browsing various ideas to gift yourself or surprise a loved one with a this one of a kind experience. Maybe this is a sign that it’s time to make that decision and feel great about yourself. I can assure you that the only thing you will regret is to not have done it sooner.

There are many ways to look your best in your pictures and you can just set the mood based on your own personality for your boudoir photography session. Most photos are generally, elegant, mysterious, naughty and they all carry the “je ne sais quoi” that each individual bring to the shot.

Unleash your inner beauty

Take a good look at how you see yourself. Women are their own worst critics. We constantly compare ourselves to ideals portrayed in magazines and on TV. We are worried about wrinkles, double chins and flabby tummies. It’s often hard to silence the voices in your head telling you “about your flaws, even when we receive compliments daily.

Well guess what ladies: You are stunning! Every inch, ounce, line, and curve screams perfection. Your boudoir session is the chance to let that gorgeousness shine through and silence that little voice in your head once and for all! Boudoir photography is a great way to challenge you to try something new.

So, take a chance and regret nothing!

A lot of us are terrified at the thought of posing in a scantily clad or suggestive outfit in front of a camera. These inhibitions are often deep seeded fears we learned as girls. We are taught not to be “That Kind of Girl”. I understand you but I know how badly you want to look and feel incredible, and as a photographer I will help alleviate your fears and make your boudoir photography session amazing and you’ll feel fabulous.
