Fashion and Beauty Inspired Portraiture
Vintage buildings can make the best backgrounds and environments within which to do a photo shoot. But, photographers find it difficult to obtain access to old buildings. Usually, the owner doesn't want to grant access for fear of liability issues. It's understandable in our litigious society. As a result most of my pictures that have a beautiful, vintage building included are composite images. I photograph the subject on a gray seamless paper background in my studio and then composite that image into another image that I licensed from a stock image company. The background image is called a "backplate". Some photographers shoot their own backplates but I don't. This image of Rochelle was done as a composite.

The World of. Brown
I don’t know why, but I’ve always liked earth tones, especially in the brown tonal range. So when Rochelle showed me the outfit that she brought for your photo shoot, I took the shots against a brown background to get everything in to the world of brown. This was my favorite image from that set.

A sentence can be constructed with perfect grammar, but it may not be a beautiful statement that is a work of art. It may be boring. For it to be memorable, an author must artfully select the words and place them together so that they pull at your emotions. It's the same when it comes to a photographer capturing your beauty in a photograph.
Periodically, I photograph models. Most of the time, I photograph "everyday women". Many of the pictures that you see on my page are of everyday women. They are real people with real life going on all around them. They are mothers, singles, partners and have the grind of a daily jobs. They are twenty-somethings up though sixty-somethings (and sometimes older - age is not a barrier to finding beauty). If you look at an image and can't tell if she is an everyday woman or possibly a model, then I've done my job.
I love to create images that capture a woman's beauty. I want her to have images that she will cherish today as well as when she matures in life. I want her to have images that say to her children "I am beautiful" and "I believe in myself". Her images can teach her sons and daughters how to respect feminine beauty. Her partner will have pride in her. But, most of all, she will have pride in herself.
Valerie told me that she is proud of her gray hair. And she should be! She responded to my model call for people with gray hair to be photographed in beauty inspired images. She was a perfect selection!
You would think that the reason most women want to do a beauty or boudoir photo shoot is to give pictures to their significant other. Some do, but that's not usually what it's all about. They do it for themselves. You wouldn't think so, but it can be a life changer. It's amazing how it builds confidence. It can change how you perceive yourself.
Except for watching themselves practice in the studio mirrors, dancers rarely ever get to actually see themselves performing. A few lucky ones get to watch their performance when a video is professionally created.
While watching themselves in a studio mirror, dancers are focused on perfecting technique and not able to simply enjoy the beauty of their art. Plus, while in the studio, they only see themselves from their eye level vantage point. A still photograph removes those barriers and frees them to simply enjoy the art that they are creating. To see themselves from the perspective of an audience member that has the best seat in the house. They get to view their dance from varied camera angles, something they can't see in a mirror. Many artists, such as painters, get to admire their art as it's displayed in it's final form, but anyone that performs on a stage misses a lifetime of seeing the final form of their own art.
Dancers enjoy dancing, or they wouldn't dance. But think how much more they would reap the enjoyment if they could see the final form of their own art.
Enjoy the art that you work so hard to create. Enjoy it fully.
