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 Café images. Cherie and I are relentlessly pursuing every aspect of the art of creating beautiful images that make a sincere connection with all of our subjects! The make-up, the clothes, the lighting, all aspects of the shoot are important.  In today’s photography world, we are involved in every aspect. From the client’s first contact, where Cherie discusses in detail every way to prepare for the shoot, from the selection of the garments to be worn, the poses, and maybe the most important question:  What is the final product ultimately desired?

Yes, times are a changing and in the era of social media, the selfie and smart phones with cameras, people’s photo requirements have changed.

Luckily, Boudoir photography needs special gear that can’t yet be duplicated with camera phones. Cherie and I use #Nikon and they still rule, in our opinion.

Cherie’s #NikonD750 and my #NikonD810 combined with a slew of #Nikon prime lenses 10mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 60mm Micro, 85mm, 105mm Micro,135mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm; the only one missing is the new #Nikon105mm 1.4 and we can’t wait to add it to our kit. So why am I telling you all this? Oh yes, the times are changing and so are our bodies and we are here to preserve your best look year after year! So, I encourage you to call us today. Let’s get started on making those iconic, awesome boudoir images — the one’s you deserve!
