As of the end of September Casual Elegance Photography will no longer have our studio location in Sandy Springs GA.   I’ve decided to switch gears in order to lower costs and be able to provide lower cost shoots for my clients.   The savings from not having rent, additional internet connectivity, and the security system will allow me to pass on the savings to my clients.

Of course this is a bit sad for me since I’ve been in the location for the past 9 years and have built it into a fully stocked studio, but so many people are looking for the “low cost providers” that I have to change things up to continue to compete.   It’s been a fantastic location with many fond memories, but change is necessary.

After the end of September Casual Elegance Photography will be an “On Location” photography services provider.  I’ll shoot at client homes, in hotels that clients book, and outdoors at client selected locations.   I’ll have 5 complete sets of lights, computer connectivity (so we don’t have to view the images on that tiny screen on the camera), and the same great photography that you have come to expect from Casual Elegance Photography ®.

I will also be updating my website with new pricing, samples of location shoots, and information on how you can book your special shoot.

I want to thank all of my past clients for all of their support and friendship, and I want to welcome all my future clients to the Casual Elegance Photography family.

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!!!

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.

It’s true that most of our sessions revolve around special occasions during the year. Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc. But we also have clients, both women and men, who come in for a shoot just because they want to feel good about themselves. Sometimes they will say it’s for their significant other, but then they say that it’s also for themselves. They’ve worked hard for the look they now have and want to celebrate it by capturing it forever. An Artistic Nude or Intimate photo session is a great way to capture the hard work and beauty of their body. Over the past few months we have had several “just for me” photo shoots. I’ve worked with people who just want to do the shoot to check it off their “bucket list “, I’ve worked with people who have been working out hard to get a great body, and I’ve worked with people who just want to document their beauty forever. The common theme for the shoots has been “I am doing this for myself, but my (significant other) will enjoy the results too”.

At Casual Elegance Photography we encourage you to feel good about yourself, and we try to show you how great you really look!!! From beginning to end, our sessions are both relaxed and exciting. We shoot directly to the computer so you see the shots as we shoot them, and we work diligently to get images that have a “wow” factor. When you finish your session we want you to be walking tall and all encouraged about how great you look. Empowered!

Treat yourself (or your significant other) to a wonderful experience. Call today to make an appointment for an artistic nude or Intimate Photo Session! You will be glad you did!

When I started Casual Elegance Photography® 17 years ago I did mainly portraits. Within the first 2 years the models and clients I worked with started asking if I would do Boudoir and Nude Photography, so I added it to the venues of my photography. It quickly took over my business and more than 90% of my shoots were either boudoir or nude sessions. For the past 12 years I have specialized in Intimate Photography – Boudoir, Nude, and Couples. I got calls from new clients on a daily basis saying that they have always wanted to do a boudoir or nude session but didn’t know any photographers who did them. Things are different now. It’s great to see that Boudoir is no longer taboo. Photographers who only shot weddings or photographers who only shot families are now offering boudoir as one of their speciality services. Every day I see new names popping up on the internet of photographers who offer boudoir sessions at unbelievably low prices. In the past 3 years there has been a big increase in the number of photographers who are now boudoir photographers. Many only offer their services at your location or a hotel, and some are traveling photographers who do shoots in cities across the country. At Casual Elegance Photography® I have dedicated my studio to boudoir and nude photography. It’s what I love to shoot and what I have dedicated my talents to. I have sets and areas specifically to shoot the these images on. I also offer location shoots, but what I have found is that the clients who come to me for their images prefer the studio over a hotel or home. The makeup artists who are part of the team are all experts in glamour makeup and all have formal education in makeup application. Our goal is to combine our expertise to create the best images for the clients.

Now with the saturation of the market with boudoir photographers, the photographers who have the costs of a studio, pay for insurance and business permits, and maintain a host of equipment, are seeing their business collapsing. Just like the internet has destroyed the brick and mortar businesses, the photographers who have no overhead are impacting the brick and mortar photographers. At Casual Elegance Photography, I’m in the process of closing the doors. It breaks my heart to do it, but this down cycle and my health has taken its toll. I’m hoping that business grows in this month and next, but I’m preparing for the worst. Stay tuned, we maven have a “going out of business” sale.

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!
