The Boudoir Divas want to make the "ultimate supermodel experience" accessible to every woman, and the website's testimonial page offers happily tearful proof of that mission's success. For example, client Susan wanted to shed her everyday style for a day of flashbulbs and glamour. She starts her anecdote by describing the consultation she had in the jazzy, girly dressing room, and finishes her story by confessing that when she saw her prints, she cried. Susan described the experience as life-changing, saying, "it was just one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Second to my wedding."
Creating these unforgettable experiences is an all-female staff of photographers, makeup artists, and image editors, who run a 6,500-square-foot studio that houses a dressing room, more than 16 sets, and an area to review subjects' proofs. Spangled with vanity lights, the crimson dressing room is lined with a wall of shoes, and opposite, a wardrobe rack is strewn with leopard print, tulle, fringe, and lace, offering a variety of mix-and-match outfit choices. Numerous packages are available, and the Divas' portfolio is divided into Romantic, Supermodel Sassy, Fine Art, and Simply Beautiful categories.
The talented photographers at Aquario Studio artfully capture treasured memories in the cozy confines of the beautiful, naturally lit Point Loma studio. During a 45-minute, in-studio session, models can feel free to test out newly trademarked poses or simply allow the professional shutterbugs to pose brand-new babies, graduating high-school seniors, or favorite four-legged friends. After shoots, clients return to the studio about 10 days later for a private viewing premier, in which they can select the most glamorous image and use the included discount to have it framed, canvas-wrapped, or sent to the DMV via carrier pigeon.
Until the invention of photography and mirrors last month, people had no way of knowing what they looked like. Today's Groupon will let you know how you look at your best with an hour-long photo shoot from e a brown studio photography for $70 (a $275 value). Choose your favorite San Diego location within this travel area to serve as your backdrop and Edward Allen Brown will be there to snap shots and provide you with valuable modeling advice (face toward the camera; smile with your face, not your elbows), as well as shiny digital copies of all your pictures on one convenient disc.
Although Dianna Ippolito of B?same Photography is a San Diego native, it was in Europe where she truly honed her craft. After graduating from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, she found herself traveling through the streets of Paris and the watery canals of Venice, snapping shots of passersby, buildings, and landscapes in search of Europe's romantic essence. Since returning to the States, she has featured much of this work in exhibitions across California, and carried that romantic essence with her into all her shoots.
More than 20 years into her career, Dianna knows better than to be a control freak. When snapping photos, she allows brides, infants, and stone-jawed bodyguards to express their emotions naturally, so that every shot feels spontaneous and genuine. She then immortalizes these images in soft, pastel hues or classic black-and-white.
