Have you ever considered yourself fine art?

When one thinks of boudoir photography, the typical go-to thoughts include “sexy”, “alluring”, “revealing”, “nude”, “gift for him”, etc. However, not unlike photography in general, there are many subsets and offshoots of boudoir which are very deserving of their own category. One of those is fine art. This has inspired us to create our Single Light Sessions!

Unlike our standard boudoir portrait packages, the Single Light Sessions are minimal in their approach...

I am beginning to think I might be a tad out of touch. Not that I was ever in touch (no pun intended) with Playboy Magazine on no more than a few occasions in my life. However, either times have changed, I never paid much attention before or a little of both. In any case, following my blog some months ago (Playboy need not necessarily be nude?), I would be remiss if I did not follow u...

Playboy need not necessarily be nude?

Playboy’s first cover featuring Marilyn Monroe (1953)

One might think, as they grow older, fewer things would surprise them. After all, the more years you have on Earth, the more likely it is you can relate current events to something you’ve seen before. The problem with this is: Life’s infinite possibilities outside of a scripted environment never cease to bring about surprises for even the most seasoned of people.

This week offered just such a surprise...

If you’re waiting to have portraits made, the time is now!

The thing about photography is that it is so finite in relation to the moment. It butts up against the flow of time…and it wins every time. Naturally, the only thing that can stop the camera from capturing and holding a moment is to simply not allow it to happen in the first place. And the easiest way to justify that is to convince yourself all your ducks are not yet in a row.

“I am waiting for (fill in the blank)” or “I want to (fill in the blank) before I b...

The Expo has left me spent, but pumped!

If “hausted” could be a word to describe “full of energy” (and it might be depending on which link you click on in a Google search) then I am most definitely ex-hausted. But it feels great to be exhausted for the right reasons!
