Originally a still-life art form, boudoir photography switched to human subjects when clothiers stopped making apple-size garter belts. Bite the fruits of seduction with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a boudoir photography session (a $99 value) including one 8"x10" print (a $60 value), two 5"x7" prints (a $60 value), and one digital file with rights (a $99 value) from Elusive Art by Kemmetmueller Photography Inc. in Deephaven (a $318 total value).
At Elusive Art by Kemmetmueller, women capture their femininity and flirtatiousness in the confines of a comfortable, private studio. During a 45-minute session, a seasoned female photographer snaps 15 sultry frames for stunning mantelpiece portraits or memorable Christmas cards. Subjects can sport two outfits during the shoot, including items such as naughty negligees or haute couture. Digital images undergo professional retouching before being inked onto one 8"x10" wallet and two 5"x7" prints. After the session, clients receive a digital file of their favorite image that can be reprinted or screen-printed onto T-shirts for corporate picnics.
Matthew Kemmetmueller took the reigns of Kemmetmueller Photography in 2010, but the roots of the business go much deeper down than that. Matthew's father founded the studio in 1972, long before the invention of digital photography and when the term "camera-phone" just meant a rotary phone on a tripod. In June of 2013, Matthew was named Member of the Month at Wedding & Portrait Photography International, and his business has expanded beyond family portraits, sports shots, and senior photos to include photography and technical workshops.
