Whether she's catching the exact moment when a beaded drop of water falls from a curled flower petal or the violent head bang of a rocker beating the drums during a concert, Bethany Quillin is all about capturing images with natural movement. In fact, many of her subjects can be found dreamily staring off into the distance, caught unawares in a moment as natural light illuminates their face.
Bethany turns these ethereal images into professionally edited photos and creates prints to hang on walls. She also puts them on CDs so customers can reprint them at home.
DeBoudoir photographers specialize in setting their clients at ease, carefully directing poses and maneuvering lighting to elicit flattering shots that smack of self-confidence. During trademark boudoir sessions, subjects wear sumptuous lingerie or drape their nude frames strategically in sheepskins and blankets before posing in-studio or on the beach. DeBoudoir tweaks this photo formula for its other services, which include engagement sessions and pinup shoots, during which subjects wear stylish vintage garb.
DeBoudoir's lingerie boutiques brim with corsets and accessories such as hats, gloves, and thigh high stockings. Lingerie, meanwhile, runs the gamut from negligees to underthings more delicate than an aging movie starlet?s ego.
