I met a new aspiring model recently who was in need of some portfolio development, and was interested in exploring boudoir and implied nude photography. But she has had a couple disappointing experiences and needed to discuss first, which was smart. I explained to her that as she finds herself as a model, she will be conscious of angles and know her own body better, and will know more about vetting photographers and freelance assignments. She knows that part of her search criteria for a photographer involved in intimate art and female form has to understand body angles as well as building trust with the subject. Especially before a subject or model has lots of experience being photographed in any stage of undress, they are vulnerable and it’s the photographer’s responsibility to provide a good experience. That doesn’t mean be a white knight, etc. But just to respect the fact that they are trusting us to be discreet, not cross lines, and to capture them in a flattering light.
The hotel offered a nice furnished boutique setting especially since it was a little chilly outside to use abandoned locations….and this particular setting fit her look better. I offer hair and makeup and option to use boutique hotel for my clients’ boudoir shoots. The goal was to capture mood, beauty, softness, and sensuality, yet retain elegance. Female form in it’s glory.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the boudoir and implied nude photos of Kaila, it was rewarding to me that she was pleased with the photos and experience she had, win 🙂
