Ladies of all ages and physiques pose for skilled photographers in a private, female-only studio to create artful, sumptuous portraits highlighting femininity and confidence. Upon arriving at the Boudoir Photography by Angie Garfield studio, clients comb through potential outfits with the talented shutterbug and can sip a glass of wine to calm any preshoot jitters. The photographer then leads subjects through a beauty-capturing session composed of a series of poses tailored to the client’s comfort level. Boudoir Photography encourages women to incorporate flirty accessories such as feather boas, long strands of pearls, and velvet leprechaun caps into the session. The retouched prints and digital images immortalize each subject’s unique beauty for a personal keepsake or memorable gift. Groupon holders may also purchase additional prints, products and makeup-application services at 10% off.
The photographers at Retro Vice release each subject's inner temptress with sultry re-creations of classic pin-up poses. Bombshells sit down in the stylist’s chair to make tresses shimmer and cheekbones blush for prints that light up the insides of lockers. A plethora of vintage props and wardrobe pieces spice up shoots with skimpy sailor suits and naughty aprons, and photographers coach models, cladding them with a natural confidence. Much like bootleg antiques, five portraits of the client's choice undergo vintage retouching before the images are finalized in physical and digital form.
High-fashion photographers might view laugh lines, stretch marks, and scars as imperfections, but boudoir photographer Erin Colleen sees them as marks of a life well lived. This aesthetic infuses her sultry boudoir shoots, during which she captures the unique beauty of subjects of all ages and sizes. During sessions, which can be purchased for holiday and anniversary gifts, her models can don outfits ranging from football jerseys and panties to lingerie and thigh-high stockings; alternatively, they can pose nude and conceal themselves using artfully cast shadows, rather than by peeking out from behind a clothed friend. Erin Colleen just as artfully documents women flaunting their curves solo and couples showcasing their chemistry.
A fun-seeking spirit is the driving force behind Mikenzie Bean’s sessions at Grey to Blue Photography. Mixing posed and candid shots, her sun-soaked images capture everything from kids helping their dad clean the pool to couples cuddling in the park. Whether shooting engagements, kids, or families, clients can enjoy some 50 or more photos per session, which Mikenzie offers on a convenient USB drive.
