Oh. My. Word. I knew this session was going to be amazing just because the subject is so incredibly beautiful but little did I know she would be such a natural in front of the camera. She is real. Genuine. No posing here, just very natural and not self-conscious. Which I totally LOVE. It is NOT easy to relax in front of a camera, I always hold my clients in high esteem for doing their part. I feel that I have the easy job showing up in my jeans and sweatshirt, hair in a pony tail, ready to get down and dirty literally on the ground to get my shots. My clients on the other hand show up in perfect make up and often dressed to the nines. Not only that, but they have to look relaxed in front of the camera? That is a big order! Unless you are a full time model, this is very hard to grasp.
I have to say, I am so proud of *G* for the hard work she put into her images; and it is work. I always tell my clients you get out what you put in. It was not a warm evening either. And as much as I would like to do a session in 10 minutes, I really do need a minimum of 1 hour to get all of the shots. It takes patience and a lot of humor. And I do try to put an emphasis on the “humor” part
I’m going to show you more images than I usually show because I typically show my child sessions. However, I often shoot adults too. It’s not uncommon for a woman to want nice pictures of herself to give to her husband as a birthday gift or anniversary gift. Though I typically do not shoot boudoir, I do the type of images you see below. As you can see, they turn out fabulous, and getting dressed up to do some glam poses is a wonderful gift to give your man. Unlike boudoir, you don’t have to worry that your kids will find the images – one reason I have shied away from shooting boudoir all these years, it’s a concern of mine that you children may stumble upon them. So, this is my niche and I think it’s just as sexy to show your man how you can rock an evening dress – of course how small that evening dress is, is entirely up to you! All adult images are touched up to your liking, though it is never done in an obvious way. In fact, I have to edit newborn and child skin too simply because my camera and lenses are so intense they will pick up the tiniest blemish!
And here you go… please enjoy these images, I’m so happy to have the time to present a longer preview for once.
