My focus is on one thing…high fashion portraiture. The goal is to make something unique and flavorful for each client. It doesn’t matter if it’s a wedding or a portrait session, the goal is still the same in terms of capturing the personality of the person and creating something fresh and different. So this week we bring you Regan with her soulful and sultry boudoir portrait session!
Regan has a dance background and wanted to do something different and non-dance related. We got together and discussed several ideas, outfits and the idea of what she wanted to see in her final images. And as many sessions go we got a combination of things we had planned such as her with her boyfriends wardrobe and some things we did not expect such as climbing into a glass shower to wrap up the session.
Some questions I get most often include “How long does a boudoir portrait session take?” The best answer that I can give is that it really depends on you. The longer you’re willing to shoot and the more ideas we’ve got, the longer it will take of course. I like to have a minimum of two to four hours set aside. It’s not so much the time that concerns me but the quality of the images captured. It usually takes a few minutes to get comfortable with the idea that your photographer is going to be posing you in various ways with most of your clothes being gone. Then once you’re relaxed the images begin to flow. I tell most clients to not have anything planned for the next several hours after their session in case we run a bit late. Another question I get is “Who does these sessions…is it right for me?” The answer is that anyone can! It’s right for you if it’s something you desire. A boudoir session is about capturing yourself in art. It’s still a portrait session but one that celebrates your form and beauty. Who’s my usual glamour or boudoir client? Surprising to most it’s most often women who have a family, job and are just like you. They simply want to do something different than the status quo.
