Back several years ago Boudoir Photography was more on the fringe of the photography business. There wasn’t enough interest in it to make it a mainstay for a photography business. Casual Elegance Photography still made it one of our specialties and has remained true to providing exceptional boudoir photography for our clients to this day.

Fast forward to 2017… Boudoir photography is very common. Many photographers who had never ventured into the boudoir venue are now providing this service to their customers. In fact, the market is being saturated with boudoir photographers. It’s not difficult to get into the boudoir business, but it’s critical that you possess three essential skills. First, you have to be genuinely interested in getting the best shots for your customer. The customer is going to be nervous and shy, so you have to work with them, get them to feel comfortable, and honestly help them hit the poses. Second, you have to have a good command of lighting. Portraits and wedding photos have a different lighting setup than does boudoir. Boudoir requires sensual yet lit well lighting. It’s not something that just happens. You have to plan and practice to get the most out of the lights. And third, you have to price your services to remain in business yet compete with all of the other boudoir photographers. That’s where the biggest challenge comes in. Some boudoir photographers use a hotel or the customers home to shoot. They don’t have the expense of a studio, insurance, licensing, and utilities. So they can keep the prices very low. Others, like me, have invested in the business and have been doing this for a while. SO while our prices may be higher, you will see a difference in what we do and how we do it.

The decision is the customers. At Casual Elegance Photography I can honestly say that we will do every reasonable thing to make your photoshoot a fun and successful shoot. We pride ourselves on getting the shots you want and on making you comfortable throughout the shoot.

Well, did you get him that unforgettable unique present yet? No? Well it’s almost too late, but if you want to get him something he probably has never thought you would, how about a Boudoir Album of YOU!!! Sure, this is something that you would be a little nervous about, but believe me, we have never had anyone come in that didn’t totally enjoy their session. They all tell me that at first they are nervous, but when they see the images coming up on the monitor and realize how hot they look, they quickly lose the nerves and get into the shoot.

So what’s a Boudoir shoot all about? Easy, it can be anything you want it to be – from fully clothed to fully nude and anything in-between. It’s all about you and presenting your sexy self to him in an album. You can even add some artistic nudes to the mix if you want to.

Imagine sitting by the fireplace, a glass of wine, snuggled up. You present the album to him. As he opens it you see his breath coming faster and that glow in his eyes. “WOW” he says as he slowly opens each page. “You are HOT!!!” he mumbles as he catches his breath between each photo. It’s going to be a good evening…

You know you have always wanted to do this so call and make your appointment today. We are running out of time to be sure to have everything back by Valentine’s day. But if you miss the great occasion to give him a great present, there’s always his birthday or your anniversary, or for no other reason than to say “I love you”.

Now that you’ve decided to do a boudoir or artistic nude photoshoot, for yourself or someone you love… what’s next?

 Boudoir actually means a woman’s bedroom, dressing room or private sitting room.  Your boudoir photography session at Casual Elegance Photography ® will reflect a sense of intimacy, sexiness, and femininity.  The key to getting your images to look great is comfort, and relaxation!  Nerves will show in the photos every time.  If you read our clients comments you will see that without exception they are comfortable and relaxed in our studio – even if they have been completely naked for artistic nude photographs! And most of them are surprised by this!  We have robes available in the studio for your use before we begin shooting and during set changes, but we recommend that you bring your own rode with you to add to the comfort feeling. It always surprises me that halfway through the session most women aren’t even bothering with the robes anymore! I am glad that they are that comfortable.

Remember, this is new to you, but as the photographer, I have done this hundreds of times. I use digital imaging and shoot directly to the computer – so we can see the results as we shoot. I have never had anyone say that they didn’t enjoy their shoot once the photographs start appearing on the screen! Most say that they cannot believe how beautiful they look, and seeing their images on the screen helps them to relax more.

There are many things you can do prior to the photoshoot to calm yourself if you need to. Take a relaxing bath, listen to soft music, meditate… just spend some time keeping the nerves at bay.   Before the shoot I will send you and email that gives you hints and tips for the shoot. Then just come in and let us do the rest.  You will have fun, and get some fantastic images as a bonus!

From one extreme to the other! I love the wide variety of photography that I’m involved in! This weekend will start with family portraits and head shots, and will end with a male artistic nude session, to update my portfolio and website.

For some reason, the phrase male nudes immediately makes people think “oh, you mean porn!” Actually at Casual Elegance Photography, nothing could be further from the truth! We firmly believe that the human body is a work of art. Our male nudes focus on the lines of the male form, and lighting to highlight the shape of muscle and mass.

I can’t wait until I can find a safe and secure place to shoot some summertime nudes outdoors. A few years back I shot some in my back yard, but that was when I had my studio in my home. And a few years ago I did a photoshoot for a client in the driveway of her home. No neighbors were home and the street was a very quiet one. We moved her classic car out to the driveway and she posed nude with it. We got some great shots and her husband was thrilled to get a book with the images in it. Last time I heard from her she said he looks at the book often!

Shooting outdoor nudes is a great way to celebrate the beauty of the human body in a natural setting. But it has to be a safe and secure place. You don’t want the public to be walking by, and you don’t want the law to get calls about it. The best place is on private property that’s off the main roads and in a location that’s not easy to see. I wish that I knew someplace like that, but sadly I don’t. Well, at least not yet. I’m planning a couple of days to research locations and visit them to see what I can come up with.

Even though we don’t have an outdoor venue yet, you can still come in and get your boudoir and nude shots in our comfortable, safe and secure studio. Visit Casual Elegance Photography ® and make an appointment today!

Yes, if you are reading this, you have survived a Full Moon on a Friday the 13th. You’re safe again until the year 2049, so take advantage of your new lease on life!

Yes, I joke about this but in ancient times events like this were both feared and worshiped. Things that can’t be explained were surely the work of the gods. But even today, there are cultures and societies that embrace these events as special days with special meanings.

Last night it was actually very beautiful to see the moon rise. First there were low clouds that the large moon had to come up through. It had a mystical look, all covered in a shroud of fog. It rose slowly as if to take every moment to say “here I am, like it or not.” As it rose in the sky the clouds thinned out and the moon took on it’s usual look and lit up the earth. It was brilliant and beautiful – a heavenly beauty to behold. I could actually see my shadow as I stood in an open parking lot. Several times I noted that I didn’t need any other light to see around me. And that was great!!! I could have seen any crazies or weird things coming at me even if my flashlight were to give out. Although I 2 backup batteries, I was confident that there would be light, thanks to that full moon.

So take advantage of your new lease on life and come to Casual Elegance Photography® for that special shoot you know you’ve been dying to do! And do it soon because 2049 is just around the corner. 🙂

On of the most flattering and sensual lighting arrangements in my opinion is a rim lighting set up. Basically the lighting is coming from the rear, and they way I like it, at a 45 degree angle. This accentuates the curves, the lines of the body, and leaves the rest of the body unlit. It could be full frontal nudity and nothing shows except the sides of the body and a shadow for the rest.

When clients come in and are undecided about whether or not they want to shoot art nudes, I show them samples of past works. Most of the time the clients love the rim lit shots I have in my sample portfolio. I have several samples up on the wall too. We discuss the way that the client will look in them, decide on some poses and angles, and then we shoot them. It’s simple, fun, and the clients love the way they look.

Rim lighting is a beautiful way to show the human body in a light that you don’t see every day.
