It's Christmas Boudoir Season

This week I completed photography for two clients, both of whom will be surprising their beaus with gifts of boudoir albums at Christmastime.  It is tricky to post photos from these sessions, since I don't want to spoil anyone's surprise!

The photographs that I made for E were carefully lit fine art style portraits, including figure studies which imply more than they show.  There are several takes from E's session that are sufficiently anonymous to post.  The printing style will that we will use for her album will be desaturated and tinted similar to these:

Compared with E's album, C's album will include images that are much looser and more informal, with some fashion oriented portraits, and some nudes that are more revealing while still being artful, tasteful, and beautiful.  Whereas E's session was all about studio lighting, C wanted to use daylight only, occasionally supplemented with portable flash.  Finding takes which showed neither C's face nor any recognizable clothing was, well, nearly impossible.  But with some blurring, I can show you these:

I look forward to sharing more images from the portrait sessions of these lovely clients after Christmas, when the veils of secrecy can be lifted.
