WHY ALL GIRLS NEED A BOUDOIR SHOOT

The reason every girl needs to do a boudoir shoot is to have that time to reset the sexy button on their life and remember that being a woman is the greatest gift in life that can be given...... We have been revered throughout history since the beginning!! Women have somehow lost their way and because history is now a thing of the past and no one seems to care the ideas and concepts that women are the amazing creatures that are Gods gift to men and the world itself is a forgotten idea. If only the girls of today would read and find the history of women and see how this is such a gift to be shared to everyone. We feel that with every woman that steps through our doors. I know the history and I know how urgent it is to spread this gift of knowledge to the women of today. We must remember and not forget and keep our gifts and be able to sweetly use them for mankind!!! We are the strength of the earth and we have the power and we must know that! I must say that I am not a writer and…

WHO IS THE BOUDOIR CAFE AND WHY WE ARE FABULOUS :)

When alot of clients come into the studio and finally meet us for their experience, There is alot of asking who we are and the story about us!! So I thought since I am bringing my website up to date and giving it a facelift I would tell our story before you get into the studio so you feel like you already know us. I find that a lot of women do say that and have read the info on us but here I thought I would put up old photos and highlights of our lives together and tell the what some call a great story for all!! W have always done boudoir photography and shot women right back to the beginning of meeting in Toronto in 1976 (yes way before you all were born!) We were total 70's kids having the time of our life! Don't be jealous but I can see how you might be. The days of Studio 54, Ibiza back in the day, Goa India, being a radio DJ and first woman photographer at a major Toronto newspaper was all part of the story! Not only that but Hedley brought alot of very cool music to…

WHY YOU WANT YOUR BOUDOIR SHOOT TODAY!!!

In these days of really fast changes and memories going by so fast, and with the explosion of short videos for social media, I am really thrilled to be a still photographer…..don’t get me wrong, I find myself shooting more and more videos for clients who are asking for it but it also forces me to make more compelling images that tell a story…emotional portraits? This is what we try to portray with our Boudoir Cafe images….Cherie and I are relentlessly pursuing every aspect of the art of creating beautiful images that make connection with all of our subjects! The make up, the clothes, the lighting……..In todays photography world we are involved in every aspect… from the clients phone call or email where Cherie discusses in detail every move on how to prepare for the shoot …..from the selection of her garments to be worn, the poses, and maybe the most important question:  how the images will be viewed in the final product. Yes the times are a changing and in the era of Social Media and of the selfie and smart phones with cameras, peoples photo requirements have changed. Luckily Boudoir photography needs special gear that can’t yet be duplicated with camera phones…Cherie…

OUR BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY REALIZATIONS….

It suddenly occurred to me as we were shooting our most recent clients this week, that Cherie and I have a very unique shooting style> We shoot side by side with different cameras and different lenses and we get two different perspectives at the same time using a combination flash and continuous light…we are constantly pushing to get the next great shot…all the while making the clients get over their fears of being the subject and being photographed we create a party atmosphere with great music and drink …. …..our last clients were a couple that came to us for a boudoir shoot and we had to think about how to add a man into the mix We have not been shooting couples so this seemed like a good opportunity to explore further #couplesboudoir . Traditionally the men are never on the boudoir set unless he is the photographer….in this case however the man in this couple was very much in love with the woman so the emotion was already there….they had great fashion sense which made our work a little easier  They brought samples of images they were interested in and Champagne with glasses…I could get use to this! Lighting is…

EMPOWER AND LOVE YOURSELF WITH A PHOTO SHOOT~BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY

Whether you come to us for a sexy boudoir shoot or a looking fabulous personal portrait the results are the same!!! We are here to empower and make you feel so special and beautiful it is a crime not to do this for yourself!!! Society seems overloaded with images and ideas what it means to look perfect, sexy and beautiful. Just because you are not a size 2 or weigh a certain amount doesn’t make you any less beautiful than another person. Beauty is so much more than skin deep; it is our personalities, experiences, self-confidence and outlook on life that truly makes us beautiful. Lets find the things you love about yourself and focus on those features. When you draw attention away from your “flaws” and focus on your best attributes, you will see your own beauty easier than if you were to focus on your “flaws”. For the record, flaws are only flaws if you make them into something negative. Let us help you turn all that around!! Have a photo shoot for yourself. No, you aren’t conceited in wanting a sexy boudoir shoot for yourself or a fabulous, amazing portrait; in fact you’re showing your inner strength…
