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.

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!

Most of the time when a couple first contacts Casual Elegance Photography ® about doing a shoot together, they have not quite decided how “daring” they plan to be with their photographs. They simply know that they want something beyond the standard couples portrait – they are looking for something more romantic, more intimate, and with more spice!

Most clients arrive with at least a couple of specific shots in mind that they want to do.  Something they have seen on my website, or one that is particularly significant to them.  I start off the photoshoot by doing those shots for them, and I do more in terms of “directing” – since they are trying to achieve a specific look or a specific pose.  After we’ve finished those shots, if they want me to stay that involved in creating their poses, I do.

There are times though, when my couples photoshoot clients prefer a more laid back shooting style.  And that’s ok too!   My shoots are pretty laid back anyway!  But while a boudoir or glamour shoot is all about getting glammed up and creating a definite look, which sometimes can require more direction as to the various poses, facial expressions, etc, the couples shoot is about capturing the true essence of their relationship.  

I find that couples really relax when they get into the shoot and see that I am willing to let them take the lead, unless they ask for my input.  I’m always happy to help with ideas of how to create a certain look, or a lighting change that can really add to their photograph.  But basically I feel that in a couples photoshoot my purpose is simply to capture their moments.  Not to try to create them.  For example, if a man is going to kiss a woman’s neck – I don’t really think I need to tell him how to do it!  In that instance, too much direction from me could steal their moment.   I prefer to “fade” into the background, and simply point my camera and shoot, so that all they are hearing is the click of the shutter, not “bend your head a little to the right – great, now lift her chin a little…”  You get the idea!  In couples photography less is definitely more!  The less “involved” I am in the process, the more relaxed and natural their photographs.   Giving couples the “creative control” over the shoot also allows them to decide where they want the shoot to go – and I just go with the flow!   Knowing they can always just give the reins back to me allows them let their hair down and just have fun with the shoot.

Once again comes the question – do you have to be nude?  Absolutely not!  You decide how revealing you want your photographs to be!  Generally when couples come to me for other than the standard couples portrait, they intend for their photographs to be at least partially nude.  Sometimes she wants to be nude, and he wants to be clothed or just bare chested – that’s great!  If you both want to be just topless, that’s fine too.  These are your photographs.  Many of our couples have done completely nude photographs in poses that left everything to the imagination – except for the fact that the viewer knows they are nude.  A simple lighting adjustment or change in the position of an arm or leg can place shadows wherever you want them to be!  Some of the most fabulous art nude portraits I’ve done for clients to hang in their homes showed nothing more than the symmetry of the lines of their bodies.

If you’ve come so far as to read this entry, you’ve probably at least considered doing a couples photoshoot.  This brings me once again to this statement – your photographs will absolutely never  be used on my website unless you ask me to use them and give me your specific, written permission.  Nor are your photographs ever sold to anyone except you.   My respect for my clients’ privacy is well known, and is one of the reasons my clients happily refer their friends to Casual Elegance Photography ®

I can only tell you that without exception my couples clients have said that once they got up the nerve to just go for it, and scheduled a photoshoot with me, they had an absolute blast doing their photographs, and not one regret later!

To all the dad’s out there I wish you a very happy Father’s Day. My favorite quote that sums up how many kids feel about their fathers is from Mark Twain. “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.” Always remember that you children are listening and learning no matter how they pretend that they are not. All of the little things you do are being taken in and will someday be a revelation to your children.

So have a Happy Father’s Day, relax a while, enjoy the day, and remember that there is hope…
