Tonee Lawrence, a member of Professional Photographers of America, captures feminine beauty in artistic boudoir-photography sessions. During the one-hour photo shoot, each model comes up with a theme—be it flirty, sexy, or glamorous—that shows off her personality, physical features, and good report cards. Two to three weeks postshoot, subjects review the image collection online and select two poses total for their 5”x7” prints and digital files. After diminishing the appearance of fine lines or turquoise body glitter, Tonee makes the magazine-quality portraits by spraying and mounting into hard prints. Within two to three weeks of placing an order, the sprayed and beveled 5”x7” images are ready. Meanwhile, digital images find a permanent home online, where they can be accessed by a mouse-click or forefinger caress.
