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.

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.

Now that you’ve decided to do a boudoir and/or artistic nude photoshoot, for yourself or someone you love… what’s next? Well, first of all, call or email Casual Elegance Photography (Atlanta’s Premier Boudoir and Nude photography studio) and make an appointment for your shoot!

 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.  Boudoir can be fully clothed or fully nude, the choice is yours. The key to getting your images to look great though 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. 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’s going to make their photos so much better.

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. I love it when a client get into the shoot and comes up with variations of a shot once they see it on the screen. It always helps to have two heads thinking about poses.

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. And while enroute to the studio, listen to some music that makes you feel good. Music has a way of calming your nerves.  Then just come in and let us do the rest.  The studio is small but it has everything we need to create some awesome images. We have a bedroom set and a large shooting room that we can set up for other ideas. We also have a makeup area and client dressing area in addition to our restroom, so w you can come in and make your self at home. And if you have your own music on a CD, we have a CD player too.

So, come in, make your self at home, and you will have fun, and get some fantastic images as a bonus!

It’s been a while since my last post but I’ve been thinking about how hot it’s been lately. But in the nice air conditioned studio you can turn up the HEAT without sweating! A few recent shoots have been very HOT ones! Their boyfriends / husbands are going to be very pleased with the results and their temperature may increase while viewing.

I’m always amazed by my clients. They come in nervous and leave on top of the world. Once they are comfortable they get into the shoot and we produce some awesome results. It helps that we shoot directly to the computer and see the shots instantly as we are shooting without having to look at them on the back of the camera. And I appreciate that they have chosen a male photographer to take their images. The reasons vary, but the most common is that they want shots that their husbands / boyfriends will like, and not just images that are shot from a female perspective. We collaborate on ideas and discuss what we need to do to get them “on film”. It’s a fully interactive session.

So if you are thinking about getting some HOT images, contact me today and make an appointment to discuss your ideas for a shoot.

I always tell my clients that the larger the print, the better it presents itself. Well, a few of my recent clients took it to heart and ordered large prints. What’s large? 16×24, 16×20, 24×36, and even 11×14. And every one of the clients plan on hanging the images in their bedrooms or baths, but one is going to hang the 24×36 in the entry way to their home. Talk about being comfortable with herself… awesome!!!

It’s getting closer and closer to the Christmas. Please don’t wait until the last minute to make your appointment for your special photo shoot. I never like to be the bearer of bad news and have to say that I don’t have an opening, so make your reservation soon.

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.
