While we are at the beach this year I realized how much I miss the opportunity to shoot at the beach.  I saw several photo sessions where, if I lived closer, they could be something that I did as part of Casual ElegancePhotography.  I love using the natural setting of the beach as a backdrop for romantic images.  This is especially true now that I will be closing my studio due to a downturn in business (too many “photographers” offering no cost shoots and the lack of discretionary funds for consumers).  I still plan to keep Casual Elegance Photography open, but I will concentrate on location shoots rather than studio shoots.  The location shoots can be at a hotel, outdoors, a rented studio, or at homes, but they will still have the same lighting and quality as the shoots I do at my studio.  I’ve built a “portable studio” lighting key that I can transport, setup, and breakdown quickly and easily.  I even have portable backdrops if necessary.  It’s going to be sad to leave the studio I’ve had for the past 9 years, but economically it’s the right thing to do.  I’ll sell or dispose of many of the props I have at the studio and put the rest in a storage place until I can sort out exactly what I need to do with them.  When I downsized a few years ago I had really reduced the amount of “stuff” I had, so now it won’t be as hard to downsize again.

So if you are thinking of a shoot at my studio, the time to do it is NOW.  From now until mid September I will be doing shoots at my studio.  So contact me today and get your appointment scheduled.

Boudoir photography at Casual Elegance Photography ® is not “your grandmother’s boudoir”. Gone are the days of too much makeup and uncomfortable looking poses. We create beautiful, natural looking poses that not only look comfortable, they are comfortable, and they work well for a variety of body types, making every woman look and feel beautiful and sexy. This instantly puts our clients at ease when they see their photographs pop up on the computer screen as we shoot!

Our studio is comfortable and the shooting environment is not only relaxed, but focused completely on our clients. Our goal is to make them look and feel fabulous without that outdated “overdone” look that many boudoir photographers produced years ago. We want them to look real. Really beautiful, really comfortable, really sexy!

Woman have many of different reasons that they want to do boudoir photographs. The reason we hear the most: “I just want to give myself a present – something to make me feel good about ME!”
So who are today’s boudoir clients? You would be SO surprised – we’ve had brides to be, school teachers, harried mothers of several children who just wanted to pamper themselves and feel glamorous for a day, we’ve had wives of servicemen, women serving in the armed forces, grandmothers, and yes, even wives of clergy! Every woman wants to look and feel beautiful!

Our clients range in age all the way from their 20’s to their 60’s. Yes, we’ve had many clients in their 50’s and 60’s. They come in with the attitude that after years of wanting to do it, they are going to go for the gusto!!

Check out our website for some samples of  boudoir at Casual Elegance. If you are still hesitant about “taking the plunge” be sure to read our client testimonials!

Great shoot a few days ago with a client who is over 50. She lit up the lens!!! Boudoir photography is not just for the young and for those with “perfect” bodies. We all bring something special to a shoot. I love to work with the natural beauty each of us has and it’s a great feeling when you capture images that make us all go “wow”!!!! The older I get the more I appreciate the relaxed nature of my clients who trust me to get the images they can love over time. I really like to sit and talk a few minutes before the shoot and talk about “the world.” As the shoot progresses we normally get a chance to laugh and talk about all sorts of things. Many of the clients I have worked with have come back to get more images done.  You know you are doing things right when you get repeat business in field where it’s typically a one time thing.  I Love My Job!!!

Well I learned something new (yes, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks). I learned that “B-Pics” is the new name for Boudoir Photos. I read it in a forum about brides doing b-pics as the gift for their groom. Okay, this makes perfect sense in today’s “text messaging” world but I had never heard of it before. It’s amazing the number of shortened versions of words and phrases that have come into our lives as we have had to make it easier to text message and Instant Message people. I actually read an article that said that a college student used many of them in an application for employment. 🙂

So, whether or not you call them B Pics, Boudoir Photos, Intimate Images, or something else, Casual Elegance Photography® is the professional studio that can get the images for you. We specialize in Boudoir, Glamour, and Art Nude photography and we are experts at capturing the images you are seeking.

And remember, not only do we do B Pics, we do HS, Comrcl, Mtrnty, and Modl pics 2. 🙂

As I was preparing for a shoot last week I started thinking about the different venues of nudes that my clients ask for.  That day was the Glamour Nude day (here is that cycle thing again).  My first shoot was a bride who wants to give her groom a special gift for their wedding.  She brought her wedding dress and accessories and she did a “strip-tease” for the session.  She ended up totally nude for the final shots and will present the album to her husband on their wedding night.

The second shoot was a Glamour Nude session with a woman as a 10th anniversary present for her husband.  After 10 years she said that she “finally got up the courage” to do a shoot for him.  But, she told him that if she does the shoot, then he has to do one for her!

Glamour nudes, artistic nudes, and boudoir are the specialties that I’ve chosen for my business.  It’s an honor to have clients trust me with their very special photos.  I realize that they are probably going to be nervous and I make every effort to see that they relax and enjoy their shoot.  I take this all very seriously and my clients appreciate it.

At Casual Elegance Photography we never get tired of the variety of shoots we do.   From head shots to Maternity to commercial to art and glamour nudes!  Every day it’s something different.

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 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 (and recommend that you bring your own) in the studio for your use before we begin shooting and during set changes. 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. It makes the session so much more productive.

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.  The feel empowered and sexy when they leave.

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.   As I mentioned before, nerves will show.  But if you just relax and look at it as an adventure, you will do well.  Then just come in and let us do the rest.  You will have fun, and get some fantastic images as a bonus!

I welcome questions and I welcome you to come in ahead of the shoot so that you can see the studio and meet with me to discuss the shoot.

Now that you have seen the movie or read the books, you have an interest in the “Bondage World.” But… you are a bit nervous but would like to give your loved one some awesome images that would pique their interest. But where do you find a photographer who will capture the images for you and make sure you are safe as well? Casual Elegance Photography!

We have been providing the highest quality in Boudoir, Nude, and Erotic imaging for more than a decade!

We know how to make the images look authentic while giving you the knowledge that you are not really bound. In other words, we make it look real but it’s not.

Many of our clients have come to us because they had no idea if they would like this new venue for them, but wanted to give it a try even if only a pretend session. They put their trust in Casual Elegance Photography and were not disappointed. I remember one client who, after we did the first set of images, got totally into character and created some super erotic images that her husband was speechless when looking at them. She said his jaw dropped when he saw the first photo and then… well, the rest is client / photographer confidential. 🙂

The key to success is to call or email us with your ideas. Then we can work together to plan your shoot, put together the things we need to make it a success, and then shoot the images that you want. Contact Casual Elegance Photography today and let’s make this “50 shades of gray” dream come true – or at least look true!
