More) Secrets To Having A Beautiful Boudoir Portrait
Created - The Stuff Most Don't Know:
Secret #1 Is The Most Important Of Them All!
Whether you choose to
use me as your boudoir photographer or not, Please, please,
please, make sure that your photographer is a true
professional. Check references and take someone
with you to all sessions. Especially for this type of
photography you need to be extremely careful to use a full time
professional photographer with a photography studio in a professional environment.
Any other situation could lead to a disaster. The
least of which is that you may become uncomfortable and that
will show in your pictures. I'm not going to go into
horror stories here, but believe me I could. Safety
concerns aside, you will feel much more at ease in a
comfortable studio environment.
Secret #2 Is Easily And Often Overlooked!
Secret #2 is picking the right outfit! Weather you are
doing conservative glamour shots or erotic photography,
this is huge.
Even a top model wouldn't know what to wear that would help
him or her look the very best in a still photo. The "Art
Director" would say what to wear! The "model" would just
show up, and wear what has been arranged! The
person does the hair. The Art Director plans everything and
tells the subject what to do next.
You see, most people don't know what really photographs well.
Why should they. That's my
. And I love it. I'll help you select clothing
that will help you look your very best. Nothing you
don't want to wear. This is your decision, but I'm here
to help. That's why I give you a free consultation.
For example, the wrong clothing can make up to a 44 pound
difference in the way you look in your portrait! 44
Now, most women want to look as thin as possible in their
portraits. Clothing makes a HUGE difference in this area, so
let's make sure your clothing is really perfect!
Secret #3 Is A HUGE Destroyer Of Glamour Portraits!
Secret #3 is making your hair looks as good as possible. Many
women goof this up in several ways. Not only that but,
most photographers goof this up, too, because they don't know
how to photograph hair properly.
Not only do we have professional hair and makeup available, we
know how to make your hair look it's best in pictures.
This is such a big point! As you know, your hair is a
huge part of your appearance. It can make or break how
you look. We've all had "bad hair days" and if your
photographer doesn't know what he or she is doing, your
photographs will look like a permanent "bad hair" day.
One of the things that separates my photography from that of
most of the other photographers in the area is that I pay as
much attention to the light that is lighting your hair, as I
do to the lighting that is illuminating your face and they are
completely different lights!
You see, if you study Hollywood Portraiture of the stars, you
begin to see how careful the photographers are about lighting
the hair. Well, I've studied the best professional Hollywood
and I'm going to use these very same techniques to create your
pictures, to help you, and your hair look really, really
For example, many women who go to other photographers often
complain that, if they have dark hair, that their hair seems
to disappear into the background. Or, if they have light hair,
that their hair has no "life" or detail in the photograph. Or
if their hair is brown, that it doesn't look as great as they
wanted it to. It's not just how they combed or prepared it,
it's how it's lit in the photograph, too!
Well, that's not going to happen to a glamour portrait created
by me, because I'm going to take the time and the care in the
lighting of your hair so it looks absolutely perfect. It's as
if one of these Hollywood Master Photographers just finished
photographing Jessica Biel or Kim Kardashian, and now
is going to do your portrait, and I'm going to put as much
care into lighting you as they would!
Secret #4 Begin With An End In Mind
This is not just another
portrait. We need to come up with a great look for you
and your portraits. I will work with you personally to
be sure you are able to create just the right mood for your
portraits. I will even meet with you in advance of the session
if you like to discuss every aspect of your plans for a
portrait. There is no selling involved in this "chat session"
and no obligation at this time and you will walk away with a
much better idea of what you would like to achieve and how to
accomplish that .
Your first step should be to give me a
call at 205-750-0222 so that we can talk about what we can do
to create awesome portraits. You won't even believe it's
you in these portraits.
I encourage you to ask as many questions
as you like until you feel comfortable with your choice. When
we both feel we understand the requirements of what you need,
you can make a more informed choice when you are ready to
choose your photographer. Of course, I hope you will choose me
but I can give you valuable information no matter who you
Secret #5 Missing This One Is A "Silent Killer" Of Glamour
Most women don't understand (or don't want to admit) that they
get nervous in front of a camera. And they don't know
what to do about it.
You see, there are over 30 muscles in your face. And if you're
tense, these muscles tense up, and therefore, you won't love
photographs. You won't know why they don't like them. They
One of the keys to my success in photography, is that I meet
the clients I photograph in advance. And what's the purpose of
this? Yes, we're going to talk about clothing, and all the
other things. We are also going to talk about different
looks. This will help us put together session that will
be designed just for you. This meeting will give you the
chance to meet me, get to know me, and see just how well I am
going to take care of you through this. You will see my studio
in the beautiful Jemison Mansion. I'll give you a tour.
I'll spend time with you so you begin to feel comfortable and
confident about how you can trust me and take my advice.
This is going to make an enormous difference in how natural
and confident you look on the day of your photography! It's
almost like magic! You will be impressed!
can't stress this enough. You see, most photographers
just are not willing to do this. Why? Because it
takes time. All they want to do is crank people through
their studio like a "factory." They want to do your
photograph as if they were building a car. They want to put
you on the assembly line, and run you through,
click-click-click-turn this way - click, etc....Next person
I will not do that to you. I am going to treat this as
if it were the most important photo of your life - because it
See what a huge difference this will make in how you feel on
the day of your photography? You'll feel great.
You'll have met me. You'll have seen the studio. You'll
know that what you're wearing is perfect. You'll know
that your hair is going to look perfect. You'll know that no
blemishes will show! So You'll be confident, and excited
- not nervous and apprehensive.
Now, You May Be thinking, "Give me a break. This is just
a photo shoot."
Well, yes, but you and that special someone are going to
treasure these pictures more than most people could
understand! I wish I could put into words the wonderful
reactions I've seen (and heard about) when these photographs
are presented. So let's be sure they're fantastic!
Right? And that's what we're all about. That's what's so
special about us.
It's not the lens we use. It's not the camera we use.
It's not the backgrounds we use. (Although we use the
best of everything!) The thing that separates us from other
photographers, is how sincerely we want to help you look absolutely
perfect - stunning - fantastic - better than ever - in your
Secret #6 Is A Little Technical, But
Extremely Important To You!
Most people (and an awful lot of photographers) don't realize
how important light is in photography. The wrong light, and
the wrong direction of light can add up to 27 pounds to you on
film, and also, bring out your worst features!
It's really a matter of life or death in glamour portraiture.
The light is the "paint brush" with which I "paint" your
portraits. It's very important!
Now, one of the things that separates my photography from so
many other photographers is that I have studied light from the
true Masters of photography for over 20 years.
I understand the different types and direction of light that
will help you look your VERY BEST. And this is different
for every person! Again, that's another reason we meet
you in advance, so we can determine the very BEST LIGHT for
you and have it ready to use at your session day and time.
You see, there are five major highlight areas just on your
face. And they must be PERFECTLY lighted, or you won't look
Also, I don't want to get too technical here, but if you're
still reading this, you realize how important this session is,
and you sincerely want to look your absolute best. So...
the "Transition Zone" of light, between the highlights and the
shadows is what "paints" the contours of your face, and brings
out your personality and "SPARKLE." So we want to be sure that
this "Transition Zone" is perfect, too! I could go on
and on, but you get the idea.
Also, light is equally important for outdoor pictures! It must
be absolutely PERFECT if we are to create a portrait of you
which truly "Sparkles". So, the type of outdoor
portraits you like will then determine the perfect TIME OF DAY
to create the portraits. It's so important.
Secret #7 Is A Very Important One!
Nine out of ten people don't realize how important posing is.
The most important word when it comes to posing is "NATURAL."
You absolutely don't want to look stiff and fake! One of the
most common comments we hear from our clients is how "natural"
the pictures look. Our models love how good they look, but
they also love how "natural" they appear in the images.
You see, I understand that you want to look really great, but
there are only certain pictures that should use dramatic
posing. weird, stupid, pathetic pose that makes you look stiff
Yes, I will "guide" you so the composition and "look" of the
pictures.. You and I will work together to help you look
confident, comfortable, and just plain great.
Secret #8 This Is Extremely Important To You! Don't Miss
You want to be sure to select a photographer who will not
"manhandle" you with the posing. Almost all the photographers
in Alabama tend to touch their clients and push them around
way too much when posing them. (In my humble opinion.)
The posing is so important, and should not be done by sticking
you in the middle of your back if you aren't sitting up quite
straight enough! But that's what so many photographers
do. Not only does this make you really uncomfortable, but it
also makes you look stiff!
That's why I call it "guiding". I will guide you.
This is so important to helping you feel comfortable!
However, I am really picky. I'll be very careful, and
very attentive to detail. I may pick a little at your hair if
something is out of place. I straighten your collar or
Don't worry about a thing! We'll make sure you look "like a
million bucks"! We're very picky, but we don't manhandle
you - and we won't drive you "nuts" with being overly picky
Secret #9 Is Of Enormous Importance!
Don't Miss This One!
This mistake has ruined so many glamour portraits! It's
the mistake of not choosing a photographer who GUARANTEES THAT
YOU WILL BE REALLY HAPPY - and who will give you all your
money back, if you aren't!
Here's our guarantee: "You will be THRILLED (not just
'satisfied') with your portraits, or we will do whatever is
necessary for you to be thrilled, or we will return every
penny of your money. No hassles and no hard feelings either.
We want you to be THRILLED with your pictures, and will spare
no effort or expense to see to it that you are! We absolutely
You see, only a photographer who really believes in his
product and service is going to be willing to have such a
powerful guarantee. So his guarantee is your first
indication of whether or not you even want to work with him.
I just can't stress this enough. Ask about the
guarantee. Listen to their reaction. That will tell you
if you want to trust your portfolio to that photographer.
Secret #10 Is So Obvious, And Yet Most
People Don't Do It!
What's this mistake? Not asking lots of questions when you're
talking with photographers. Now, if you're still reading
this, you certainly have the questions to ask, right?
Remember, you are the customer - you have all the rights!
You have the right to ask the tough questions, before you make
You ask them first about their guarantee, and see how they
Then you ask them if they will meet with you in person, at no
charge, to discuss the clothing, locations etc,.
Then ask them about how they light the hair perfectly. Ask
them if they have studied with the greatest
photographers of all time.
Then ask them how much time they are going to spend with you.
And do they do outdoor portraits, as well as indoor
Ask them if they understand the importance of the correct
lighting of the "Five Major Highlight Areas." Ask them
if they know what a "Transition Zone" is.
Ask them how they get natural poses.
See how much you have learned so far? Pretty amazing,
when you think about it, isn't it?
