TEMPTED BUT CAN’T FIND THE COURAGE TO DO IT?
Let’s face it, the thought of posing in lingerie in front of a stranger can be a daunting task. It’s normal! Many boudoir clients who came here to our studio admitted they were nervous on the morning of the photo shoot up until the first shots being taken.
However, every boudoir client have one thing in common; they loved the experience and were in awe with the results! My best advise for women who would like to have their boudoir portrait done but are nervous about making the decision, call us for a free consultation. It will be my pleasure to answer all your questions. A consultation will go a very long way to make you feel more confident and comfortable with posing for boudoir photos.
“I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS ME!” Or “I NEVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED THAT I’D LOOK SO GOOD ON PICTURES!”
As an experienced professional photographer, I find this common testimony very interesting. The fact of the matter is, to the general public photography has become a fast food! Especially in this digital age where people are exposed to photography on a daily basis. Almost everyone has access to a digital camera; snapshots are being taken on an almost daily basis at home, at work, and at social events. It is easy to conclude we’re not photogenic people when we glance at the numerous mug shots family and friends have snapped with this little digital camera or cell phone. On very rare occasions a good snapshot will emerge and you’ll say “Wow, this one’s not bad.” Truth is, no matter how many snapshots are taken of you whether it is a point-and-shoot digital camera or a more sophisticated DSLR camera, you’ll never look as good compared to what a professional photographer can create!
OILS, BRUSHES & CANVAS…. LIGHTING STROBES & CAMERA
Professional photographers are quite simply modern day artists! Before photography was invented, artists used oils, brushed and canvas to create artistic expressions. Each and everyone of them had their own unique way of interpreting light and creating portraits.
The very same basics apply to modern day photographers. We work with light but modern technology allows us to control light. Although the basic fundamentals are the same, we photographers have better control of our finished product thanks to technology that allows us to fine tune a photograph from the beginning to the end product. Lighting strobes, softboxes, reflectors, sophisticated high resolution digital cameras, computers & top of the line photo editing softwares are everyday tools a professional photographer uses to work. However, It isn’t the tools that will best document this artistic expression but the eye behind the camera will! The experienced photographer will ensure you are at your very best!
A professional boudoir portrait is an artistic expression of your sensuality. This type of art form has been part of civilization for hundreds of years. Only the way it is captured or created has changed. A professional boudoir portrait is also a huge boost to a woman’s self confidence! The biggest reward I get from a boudoir photo shoot is the reaction of my clients when they see the finished product. I can honestly say I have brought tears of joy on many faces throughout the years.
I will always remember a point a client made one day when she said:. “The older this portrait will get, the more I will appreciate and cherish it”.
