BOUDOIR DIARY

Couple session

Some people call it E-session, as in engagement session, I reserve my thoughts on that- oh I can't...lame! Anyway I think is super important for a photographer have this time to get to know the couple. We get to court each other and see what we are getting ourselves into. After all, we are spending at least 8 hours together, plus the emailing- or calls, after. That is equivalent to like 3 or 4 dates. That's almost commitment. Here is one image of one of my recent couples. yes only one! because I am frugal. And there are some awesome ones that I will spread out.
Ha!

Like a girl


never satisfied... with the furniture arrangement. So playing around with templates. I need bigger pictures, and I wanted my columns to look more organized. Almost there, I think. Maybe is too black? Never in my life I thought those words would come out of my mouth. Never too black!

I bought the boudoirdiary.com domain to give it a whirl. Sounds sexy. I was surprised it was available.

Anyway I found a glamour shot image from way back when I was working there. I have to say the girls I worked with there where not settling down for the feather boa. I'm soooo glad. This is from 2001- crap made me feel old. And if she didn't have that thing or her neck you could not tell. Or yeah- maybe the hair is a bit puffy, but it was pure glamour.

Minding my business


Here I am googling Boudoir photography for kicks. Darn there is some holly-eighties-crap out there batman! HUGE. No wonder people think your image is going to look like this:


Not if I can help it. Of course there are some awesome photographers out there, but my only pet peeve is that there are those multi-talented photographers that will take a picture of your puppy, and your son's baptism, and then your naked pictures.

I am like: really? Are you sure? Can you see me as a baby photographer? Which I was for part of for about a year, but in the behind the scenes. I learned my lesson. I get a tick in my left eye when a hear a squeaky toy.

I am all about the multi talents- but I think a website should be dedicated to one part. Clients have asked me to do family shots- which I gladly do.

All right, there is my rant of the day. And here is proof also that I also put out for people I like. :)



p.s. no squeeky toys where harmed during this session.

The secret

People have asked me: how do you make somebody feel comfortable naked?

First of all- I have to say that the secret is that I understand that is not easy to feel comfortable in front of somebody fully dressed clicking away.
I know what it feels like! I've done it a couple of times myself, and mostly with guy photographers and I've learned what and what not to do, the naked way.

I find that 90 percent of my clients are really nervous about it- only a handful go like- ok! let's get everything off now! I start the session slowly and it helps if I am doing the make up because it gives us time to chat a bit. You'll soon realize I am silly. I am a goof. I am an ultra nerd trying to be cool.
And I almost get away with it. I can not say " squeeze your boob harder" with a straight face. However many times I say it.
