Think of boudoir photography outfits and you probably think of lingerie. And though there are plenty of black lace corsets and fishnet stockings on display in the Haute Mama Photography gallery, there are also less conventional choices: a loose men's dress shirt and tie, an off-the-shoulders motorcycle jacket, even a strategically placed basketball that serves as a sort of top. It's partly a reflection of the diversity of the photos' subjects, whose figures range from slender to voluptuous, and partly a testament to the creativity of studio owner Leah Severson, who has designed it so that even the studio's most basic package allows for multiple outfit changes. Severson has so thoroughly mastered the boudoir photo business that she holds both group workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions, during which she shares with other photographers tips for posing subjects, establishing the right mood for shoots, and getting their work to appear on the first page of Google results without taping anything to their monitors.
Modern. Fun. Your Life.
Salome photography isn't your typical staged and posed boring photographer. And if you're tired of the typical, you've come to the right place! My photography is fun, fresh, and hip. It showcases you in the best way, the most natural way. It's about YOU having fun, be YOU!
During a half-hour session at MJ Studios’ fully equipped studio, a skilled shutterbug will rattle off shots with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. Families can improvise clever poses that will baffle genealogists centuries down the road, children can imitate the expressions of baffled genealogists, and solitary models can sit simply as themselves or, to achieve better posture, sit on themselves.
