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 $125, you get a 45-minute private boudoir photography session, 10 4”x6” prints, and a CD of the digital images at Neeva (a $350 value).
Lens doyenne Neeva Kedem crafts alluring portrait, product, and fashion photography in her laid-back, professional studio. A boudoir photography session creates a tasteful set of romantically seductive images that evoke the siren within without drawing the attention of local seafarers. Subjects often model in lingerie, though the risqué level is entirely up to each boudoir dweller’s personal comfort level. Celebrate a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, or preserve a comely body part for posterity should history ever doubt its powers. Kedem stocks her studio with soft, bedchamber-evoking textiles and props that do not include stacks of unread magazines or snores. After the 45-minute shoot (a $250 value), Kedem returns the best of the voluptuous portraits in both print and digital form with 10 professional 4”x6” prints (a $100 value) and a corresponding CD of digital high-resolution images, allowing newly empowered persons to share their successful shots with gift recipients, friends, and nearly identical twins.
When Neeva was 12, she got her first camera and began holding Vogue-inspired photo shoots with her friends and her own accessories. While those early images never hit newsstands, she went on to shoot for high-profile clients. Nowadays, she and her high-end Hasselblad digital cameras split their time between a studio in Toronto and one in New York, shooting an eclectic array of portraits, fashion shots, and natural landscapes. She also employs a full professional team that can help plan and direct a creative photo shoot, and complete any necessary touchups afterward, such as airbrushing out blemishes or airbrushing in Keanu Reeves.
