Every genre of photography requires different equipment. Boudoir photography is no exception to the rule.
For this boudoir shoot, we used the Harold backdrop from Intuition. It’s one of our favorite backdrops we use in the studio because it feels so elegant and clean. The moody, charcoal coloring and smooth texture mimic the walls of a hotel room which really plays for a boudoir style session. There are countless other options, so one Intuition backdrop is sure to match the vibe you’re looking for.
For many studios, repeat clients are a significant asset. Every year, they come in to work with the photographer they love and update their images as their kids and family grow.
Contrast and all the shades of gray is what makes photographs dynamic. Muddy and muted pictures don't do it for me.
Boudoir photography is something that every wedding photographer should be thinking about offering. There are more than a few reasons why. First, the number one question that photographers ask has to do with finding new clients.
It was important to me to never lose the idea of telling a story with the photographs I was taking. I always wanted to go beyond just taking the photo—what does the image make the viewer feel? I wanted the images to tell a story and to have the flow of video or cinema.
Working from home has become the new normal for many of us in 2020. I’ve always loved the challenge of setting up a studio in a small space. Small spaces do not mean that your work or abilities will suffer.
Boudoir is such an intimate experience for clients. They are paying you thousands of dollars to pose in front of your camera at least half-naked.
You hear the notification from your email and… Yes! You have a new booking for your studio. You encourage your potential client into an actual paying client… Now, how do you take a client that’s nervous and relax them for their badass session?
About a year into my boudoir photography business, I was being asked to teach from all over, to host workshops, to speak at events, and so I went with it. I taught my first boudoir workshop in Atlanta, GA in 2015. Here we are almost five years later, and I’ve traveled across the country to speak, teach and inspire. But how did I get here? I’ll tell you one thing—it wasn’t easy. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it.
