Kicking off the Holiday Season right.

Let’s do a Bewitching Halloween Boudoir Session.

Tis the season, my friends. No, not THAT season. I’m talking Halloween. A time where everyone can be who they want to be and add their own spin on it. And this season is a great reason to get a bewitching boudoir session in.

Angel, devil, superhero, witch, cartoon character, literary character,  et cetera. You name it, we can photograph it. Bring your Halloween costumes, or any sexy outfits you want, and come have a spooktacular time. We can photograph it here in studio or out on location.

The best part? You can do the session before going to a Halloween party. Get all done up, get your images done, and then head on out to the evening’s festivities. Two birds, one stone. Or you could opt for a stand alone session before things get hectic.

You could do a solo session, team up with your bffs, or do a session with your significant other. It’s all up to you.

Shawna updated her own boudoir photography blog.

We did a sensual session when she was here visiting family recently.

Shawna is a Byron, Georgia-based boudoir photographer who wanted to experience what it was like being the subject of a sensual session as well as celebrate recent life changes. Go to her blog here to read what she has to say about the experience and her message to others thinking about doing a boudoir session.

“Doing a boudoir session should be something you choose to do for yourself.” – Shawna.

Every boudoir photography site I’ve seen always starts out with the premise that you should do a boudoir session “for that special someone.” Well, you know what? I’m going to buck against that. You know what I think? I think the most important reason why a woman should consider doing a boudoir session is to do it for themselves.

You DO matter, you ARE worth it, and you ABSOLUTELY deserve it. Empower yourself.

Miss M’s first boudoir session.

She wanted a pick-me-up after a breakup but I ended up being humbled by the experience.

I’ve known Miss M for a while on social media. We started chatting online one day after she made a post about women and cars that I agreed with and we started a conversation. That discussion opened the door to another photo session that should be coming along shortly. Stay tuned for that.

During one chat she said she loved my boudoir work and was thinking of doing a session. She came out of a relationship recently and wanted to do something that would raise her spirits. Doing this would help her out.

Mrs. K’s first ever sensual session.

Women like her are exactly why I do this.

People always ask me what I get out of doing sensual sessions like the one here I recently did with Mrs. K. The answer is simple – simple, deep fulfillment.

These (mostly) women come to me full of hope and doubt. They know they want to be shown in a certain way. Which way is something we discuss beforehand. They also come with concerns and uncertainty. This is also something we discuss beforehand. We build a personal game plan together that shows them off in the best possible way.

Then they put their trust and faith into me to present them with images that show that themselves off. I can’t stress enough just how important this responsibility is. I literally have the ability to build up someone’s self image or confirm their worst fears. It is something that I never treat lightly.

Return to the Dark Side with Bre.

Stay in this business long enough you’ll find yourself coming back to the starting point.

When I was first dipping my toes into the world of fine art photography over 14 years ago I developed a style that was dramatic, contrasty, and dark. Someone compared my work of the human form to the stylings of Edward Weston. I took that will a large grain of satisfaction.

Over the intervening years I tried my hand at a lot of different styles and genres. When I first started to do boudoir five years ago I defaulted back to the world of dark and contrasty images with an air of mystery. Heavily influenced by Film Noir, in fact. When trying something new it makes sense to go to something you know to ease the transition, I figured. It was one thing I knew so I could spend more energy developing new poses, compositions, et cetera.

Then about two years ago I started working on a new look. Luminous, light, ethereal lighting to envelope the subject. Make them angelic, even. I was very proud of this and it was welcomed by the community.

But the dark side is never, ever far from the surface. It’s in my blood. It sings to me in ways others cant. It’s a siren’s song that pulls at me to come back with open arms. A craving, if I am to be totally open about such things.
