Classics to Standards

I think I did all this week.   I had a ton of clients that needed headshots.  I meet the most interesting people that come in for their headshots.

Headshot

And what could be more fun for a photographer that shooting some newborn photos for a prior maternity photography client.   The parents are always so proud and happy to show me their beautiful babies.

And of course there were plenty of boudoir photography clients too.  My favorite shot was this classic pose that Marilyn Monroe made famous.

Things are settling down

Several students came to the studio for private photography lessons.    A few were repeat students coming in to take more advance classes.  I love teaching photography to enthusiasts.

Maternity photography was another busy area.   Some very excited moms to be came in to capture their pregnancy bellies.  Even some of the siblings got in on the act.

And of course there was a lot of boudoir photography for Valentines that kept my very busy.    So many amazing woman gave such a personal gift to that special man in their lives.

Business is growing slowly but surely.  I have recently expanded my boudoir photography into Las Vegas.  With it being a popular destination for so many, it makes it the perfect place for boudoir photos.

Sexy Stripper Pole Set

With pole dancing classes being popular, we started to get a lot of requests for stripper pole photos.  It took some time to find the right pole and solution and a way to create sexy and classy photos with this new boudoir set.

What kind of boudoir photographer would we be if we just set up a pole?  So it required much more than just a pole for us to be happy with the result.  We wanted to create the feeling of being in a club, dancing for that special guy.   As you can tell, it works.

Surprise Pin-up Photographs

Sometimes a photo shoot has a change in plans.  As a photographer I need to be ready to adapt to whatever happens.   From bad weather to equipment problems, there are always surprises.

This week on of the pleasant surprise is when Amber came into the studio to shoot.  She was showing me her lingerie and said that the one outfit was very retro.  My eye immediately saw pin-up for the outfit and asked her if she would like to do some classic pin-up with it.

Amber jumped at the chance.  She hadn’t even considered doing any pin-up photography for her shoot before, but now she was excited by the idea.

She loved the final shot and everyone she showed it to told her it was one of their favorites.

Just starting to catch up

The holidays were very busy and I finally have managed to get caught up and take some time to update my blog.  I’ve gotten a lot of messages from client s telling me how much their loved ones all loved the photographs.

This week I did get a chance to create some boudoir photographs.   I decided to end the shoot with some shoots using water.   Water can help to create a very sexy look.   As I think you will see in this sample from the shoot.

It is already time to start thinking about getting your Valentines Day boudoir images shot.  So I will be getting busy again.

Maternity was the theme this week

As I mentioned last week, this December has been packed with maternity photography clients.  Each one has been so much fun to work with.  The excitement of a new baby coming into a family is a wonderful thing to share.

Of course I always provide the standard pregnancy photos, but I love it when I can create a unique set of maternity images for a client that they couldn’t get anyplace else.  One of my clients was really into this idea and got an amazing selection of images.  This is one of my favorites.

A few lighting tricks to create this spotlight effect created this shadow.  Amazing flexibility for someone who is 9 months pregnant.  This is the kind of fun I love to have as a photographer.

In between these photo sessions I have been swamped with students taking private photography lessons.   It seems a lot of people want to learn how to take better photos for the holidays and like the idea of a private class on how to use their camera.   I enjoy teaching these budding photographers a few tricks of the trade to help them make their photos better.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season.

Busy, but fun week

This time of year the studio gets very busy.   Of course boudoir photography clients lead the requests this time of year, a surprising number of maternity clients having been booking for December.   Each day seems to hold a new surprise.

Saturday I shots some behind the scenes shots of K. T Cools new music video.  Great song and a great group of people on the set.  Everyone was great to work with.  I also helped them get some models for the video.   Here is a quick shot of K. T Cool.

Holiday’s are upon us

Holiday season is a time photographs.  Family portraits are created for Christmas cards to send to everyone.  We want to share the changes in our family over the past year.  Maybe there is a new addition or maybe everyone just a year old and better looking!

Of course there is one of the favorite gifts, sexy boudoir photographs.   Read more about how boudoir makes a great gift here.

Another popular gift is photography lessons.  Maybe they are getting a new camera, and maybe they just want to learn to take better pictures.

Of course if you know someone who is expecting, a gift certificate for a maternity photo session is a great gift idea too.

Pin-up was the theme this week

The theme this week was pin-up.  It seems that pin-up photographs may over take boudoir photos as the leading gift for this holiday season.  It is easy to see why when you look at how fun these photos can be.

Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to get a fun pin-up art piece of the woman they love.

Family portraits are also very popular for the holidays.  Families come together and it is the prefect time to get some photos of everyone.   You never know what is going to happen.
