After a recent shoot I received a call from a client who had posed nude for the first time.  She wanted to relate her experience to me so that I could tell others how she felt.  Here is a summary of the shoot and what she said about it.

She was very nervous at first.  She wasn’t sure that she could actually take all of her clothes off.  Since we do the artistic nudes first, she said that her heart was pounding in her chest as the MUA was finishing the makeup.

After we took some test shots of the makeup it was time to do the art nudes.  The shooting room was dark so she said that made her feel a little better.  I explained the first pose and showed her where she would lay on the floor.  She said that the first pose is what set her nerves at ease.  It was a pose where her back would be to the camera, and although she was nude, she wasn’t really showing anything except her “bottom” (which she had said she was proud of).  As I checked the camera connections and made the computer ready, she disrobed and got into the pose we had discussed.  I took several images and then invited her over to take a look.  She put her robe on and came over to the monitor.  This is where she said that her complete attitude changed.  She was still a little uncomfortable being nude, but she said that she realized she was beautiful and that her nude body really looked good.

As we continued to shoot the artistic nudes she said she became much more comfortable with being “naked” and she said that she actually forgot that she was.  I remember her coming over to the monitor nude, forgetting all about her robe.  She told me, on the call, that by then she was “hooked” on the art we were creating and that the nudity was not a problem any longer.

Her advice to anyone considering a nude shoot with me was to “just do it and don’t analyze it.”   “I was a total bundle of nerves and it showed in the first few poses.  But as soon as I relaxed and got out of my head, the photos were amazing.”

This is not an uncommon reaction to the art nude,  boudoir, or glamour nude sessions I do.  Please take a moment to read through the testimonials on my site.  Most clients are nervous, but without exception, my clients have enjoyed their photo shoots and gained more confidence in themselves.  Nothing makes me feel better than when a client gets into the shoot and realizes how beautiful they really are.  I see them walk out of the studio with a whole new attitude and a whole new feeling about themselves.

ARTISTIC NUDE

Okay, so you need a great idea for a present for that special person in your life. It’s now 14 days until Christmas. Oh No! Time has a way of flying by and now it’s getting down to the wire.

How about a Boudoir album of you for him? But it’s way too close to guarantee that you will have the prints back in time. Normal turn around time from a Boudoir Photo Shoot until you have products in hand is about 15 days because there is time for selection, time for editing, time for approvals, and time for the lab to print them. BUT… if we can’t get everything done and at least get selections and edits done, there is a way to have something in hand as a teaser for the big day. In the past when this has happened I have built a slideshow CD as the “substitute” present. This gives that special someone a present to open and it acts like a prelude to the final present that will be coming. Some clients have used to proof gallery as the “present” and allowed that special someone to pick the images they wanted in print from it.

I know it’s not the perfect situation, but it works very well when time has run out. The feedback that I have received is that it actually worked out better because it was like two presents.

So if you’re still thinking of the perfect gift for that special someone, call today to make an appointment for your boudoir photo 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”.

Between our personal lives and the business it’s getting to be a full week already.

We picked up a stray kitty and we’re in the process of trying to get a rescue organization to take her. She’s a sweet kitty, but we already have 6 plus a foster with special needs, so we can’t keep her. She was most likely dumped at a park near us because she doesn’t have fleas and she is very clean. She loves to be petted and has already learned that a lap is a pretty good place to sleep on. We are planning to take her to our vet tomorrow to be checked over.

The shoot schedule this week is good too. Shoots on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. And I’m working on booking another shoot for possibly Saturday. And all of these shoots have got to be done while my arm is still in its splint, so they take a little more work and are a little longer.

Despite my broken arm, Ruth and I have manages to clean out to extra suite we have and we are almost ready to hand over the keys to the landlord. It’s amazing how much junk I had in the storage rooms and never used. Most will go into a garage sale, some will go to Goodwill, and the rest will make the dumpster a new home. There are a few items that will go home with me and if needed again I will take them down to the studio when the shoot is planned.

I’ve done 4 shoots in the space we have left and it’s no problem at all. I’ve actually got more room because I consolidated a lot of the stuff onto shelves, and they are not even full. My computer was the hardest part of fitting into the move. In the old suite I had a large office and a desk where I could edit images and show clients what the editing process is all about. But now I have the computer in a much smaller space, but it has worked fine for the 4 clients I’ve shot already. I guess we really don’t need as much to do the same job.

I had a great nude couples shoot yesterday and they had a blast. We shot for over 2 hours and got a bunch of great images. Shooting in RAW with the Nikon D800 produced 3.5 Gigabytes of data! I had to go out today and get a 1TB USB drive because my internal drive was almost full. Now I can move the shoots off to the USB drive and now worry about space for a while.

Too many people are afraid of changes. I embrace them. Why? Because most of the time it means a new challenge or a different way to do something with better results. For instance, I need to downsize the studio because I don’t use a lot of the space and I’d rather have a lower rent than pay more for something I don’t use. It will be a real change and it will require a bunch of challenges, but we’re excited to start on it.

For the past few years we have had an extra 500 square feet of space which included our reception area, my office, a low ceiling shooting room, another restroom, and another kitchen. The only room that was consistently used was my office. Most clients just pass through the reception area and very few clients ever shot in the low ceiling room, so to pay to have an office is not worth it.

Over the next month we’ll have to consolidate everything to our original space that we started in. We did it before and it was great so I’m certain we can do it again. Yes, there will be less storage, but heck, I’m not using half of what I have there. SO this will be fun and challenging, but we are ready to start!!!
