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.
