I will never stop creating self-portraits.
Recently, I've filled a 100-something page sketchbook with daily self-portrait drawings. The time spent drawing each day came to be a meditative release for my mind. I wonder if I'd have the energy to photograph a daily self-portrait? Or perhaps a weekly self-portrait?
This photo is a little something I shot during a drawing session. The light was beautiful and I wanted to remember it in a photo as well as the drawing.
Let's make it official. I've opened a studio in Charleston! The driving force behind this is my boudoir shoots. Just this year I've photographed over 60 women. I definitely needed a professional space to host these ladies.
Boudoir photo shoots are a chance to see yourself as the beautiful, sexy creature you are!
For those of you coming to my website via Living Social, I thought I'd provide a little more information here about what this Boudoir Shoot package includes.
CONSULTATION - This is a chance to meet in person before the shoot. I'll show you more examples of my boudoir work and we discuss ideas, outfits and schedule the date/time for the shoot.
MAKEUP AND HAIR STYLING - Choose your style: natural, glamour, edgy or pin-up.
3 OUTFIT CHANGES - Most ladies bring their own outfits but I also have some vintage outfits and accessories at the studio. Your choice of outfit is up to you and it should reflect your personality. Here are some ideas: Matching bra and panties (with garter belts and thigh highs, optional), corset and panties, chemise, teddy, man's shirt and tie, tank top and booty shorts, pin-up, leather and lace, costume, etc...
PRIVATE PROOF GALLERY - About 2 weeks after your shoot, you'll receive an email with a password and link to a private gallery where you can preview the best photos from your shoot (about 50 images). The images will not yet be retouched, you may choose the photos you want and then I will retouch with care!
3 RETOUCHED HIGH QUALITY DIGITAL IMAGES - Choose 3 images from the proof gallery to be retouched and placed on CD. You will receive a color version and a black & white version of each selected image (so you'll actually end up receiving at least 6 images). You are not limited to 3 images, you may order additional digital images (as many as you like) as well as an album, prints or other products.
ONE 4X6 PRINT - Pick your favorite retouched image to be printed!
All boudoir shoots occur at my studio in Avondale, West Ashley. The studio is located at 811 Savannah Hwy, which is next door to Lava Salon, across the street from Gerald's Tire. You may choose to have the shoot at the location of your choice for an additional fee, $25.
I'm very excited to be collaborating with my soulful and energizing friend Kendra Marie on a new venture. The Goddess Day is about empowering women through a bit of healthy indulgence: Body Tone Yoga session, Guided Empowerment Meditation, Boudoir Photo Shoot, Relaxing Massage, Foot Soak, Organic teas, beverages and hors d’oeuvres...and more.
"Every Woman deserves to feel like a Goddess within her Mind, Body and Soul.
Goddess Day™ provides each Unique Woman with the Opportunity to
Realize her Self Worth, Release her Inner Beauty, and Remember the Experience Forever."
Check out the lovely website, designed by Kendra herself.
Our first official event will take place in the Harrisburg area, July 20 , 21, and 22. Please contact myself or email@example.com if you would like to book a shoot on one of these days.
