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…

HOW TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL BOUDOIR SHOOT

WHAT YOU NEED FOR A SUCCESSFUL BOUDOIR SHOOT There are always things that look amazing on film and so I thought I would write this blog to explain how it works…. Certain props and attitudes have to come with you on the day of…. My first recommendation whoever you shoot with is to get professional makeup…Makeup artists are just that Artists…They spend their life thinking about how to make you beautiful and the best products and contouring…..which is good for all of us…LOL… Boudoir photography is all about being sexy and beautiful so when you pick the photographer make sure you feel comfortable with them and feel they can do for you what you want….

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…

THE ULTIMATE BOUDOIR SHOOT PACKAGE….LOS ANGELES BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY

Hello this is Hedley Jones, Cherie Steinberg’s partner and husband at the Boudoir Cafe. Our style is that we shoot side by side and are a part of the show! It’s 2017 and we have been shooting at The Boudoir Café exclusively for about 4 years at our studio in #beverlyhills but we are also very much open to destination shoots. Our local area of travel from Los Angeles includes  Las Vegas and San Fransisco but we are open to any romantic getaway that our clients might suggest. So what is the state of boudoir in 2017….from a mans point of view? When I shoot at the boudoir cafe alongside Cherie,  our clients have the unique experience of two cameras and a female/male perspective. This is one of the things that gives us an edge in the industry. …you get double the fun!!!! Also two different angles and lenses which make for more selection. In the past all our marketing was geared to women and their needs, but recently we have been paying more attention to the men….every man wants their woman to be sexy and with the easy access to sexy images on the internet every woman faces stiff…
