French for "pouting room," the boudoir of yore was a place where sulky young ladies were sent to pout in private. At Little Black Book Boudoir, however, resident shutterbug Angel captures images of women feeling far from blue. After a professional makeover replete with hair and makeup, clients strike flirty, yet elegant poses during on-location shoots inside hotel suites or at their homes. Angel's boudoir, pin-up, and glamour sessions yield color and black and white images that she preserves with prints, which make a more intimate gift for significant others than building a Jumbotron by their bedroom window. Along with snapping sultry pictures, Angel lends her photography services to patrons in need of headshots or family portraits.
In 1999, 17-year-old Laura Renée began her first foray into photography by snapping shots of tour groups passing through Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. From that summer job, Laura’s fascination with photography eventually led to the opening of her own professional studio. Both at the studio and on location, Laura takes a photojournalistic approach, capturing candid images of families, newborns, and expectant moms rather than using artificial poses or encasing subjects in plaster casts for the entire session. She maintains this approach when she’s covering weddings, for which she offers unlimited photographs. During sultry boudoir shoots, however, she mixes in posed images with candid ones.
Although framing a Facebook photo sounds like an exercise in futility, National Photo’s technicians bridge the gap between the online and offline world by printing digital images on high-quality photo paper. They can also print photos in diverse formats onto greeting cards, posters, and collages, or emblazon snapshots onto iPhone cases. Additionally, the studio’s photographers snap their own images, capturing families, children, and even pets against simple backdrops rather than at parks or on the beach, where attention-seeking wildlife might try to steal the camera and shoot the pictures themselves.
