Basing Burlesque photography around the popular form of entertainment that began in the 1840s, it is a more tongue-in-cheek version of Boudoir. While the main focus is to capture you in a way that flatters and compliments your body, we also aim to capture your playful, cheeky and naughty side. It is a great confidence booster designed to empower you, and bring out your inner vixen. There is an array of costumes and props available, as well as the expert stylings of Miss Lilly Loca on hand. The images can also make for a fantastic gift for your partner – something a little bit different from the norm, but equally as special.

$160 Booking fee 

Includes hair and makeup, Photo shoot up to an hour and same day viewing.

If you require wardrobe and props, you have the option of booking in Miss Lilly Loca as your stylist for an additional $100.

Don’t be fooled by her sweet smile, miss Lilly Loca is a sassy little vixen who brings an arsenal of witty and brazen humour with her wherever she goes. Dabbling in theatre for years, in 2009 Lilly made herself known among the cabaret, burlesque and vaudeville circuits and hasn’t looked back since. With an affinity for relating to the audience and simultaneously being able to have them laughing so hard until they cry, Lilly is an accomplished performer with many a show under her incredibly sparkly belt.

Shooting with Lilly Loca as director was amazing, amazing, Amazing!! I highly recommend getting her to help with your next shoot! Her directions are easy to follow and understand, she's fun to be around and she really knows what she's talking about and how to help you get the most out of the experience. The results speak for themselves, I wouldn't hesitate about shooting with you again. I had such a great time with the team from STUDIO81! They really know how to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. I really didn't know what I wanted hair and makeup wise but the stylists rose to the challenge and made me look as fabulous as Id hoped. Jeff was amazing to shoot with too he really knows how to get the most out of you! Loved it! Thank you guys, choosing what images to get was the hardest part of the day. Will definitely have to come better prepared next time.
I was fortunate enough to have a photo shoot with Studio81 in Newmarket, Auckland. On arrival was made welcome and introduced to the staff . My hair was organized into a better look than it was while I was having the face made up what a difference, the make-up girls were so lovely to talk to. Then it was time to get changed and the girls, plus Lilly Loca were there to help. After a few adjustments it was into the studio for photos. Lilly Loca directed the shoot in her professional manner and helped to get the best poses . A change of costume and a few more shots then it was over. I was given a coffee while waiting to view the photos. Soon I was in the viewing room and I had the hard job of picking out two of the best. But, after loosing a lot of hair scratching my head trying to pick two, I ended up picking seven as the photos were so great. The staff did a marvelous job of making me up like a queen and Lilly Loca was amazing with her modeling expertise. In 10 days I get the photos I purchased. Thank you all for great experience and hope I can have another session later on next year.
