A Rave From Ms. K

We recently took a look at our reviews on Yelp and found some gems! Here is a very sweet review from Ms. K, who came to our studio for her Boudoir shoot last Spring. She had nothing but amazingly nice things to say, and she was so fun to work with. One of our favorite parts of her shoot was when she pulled out her boxing gloves to use as a prop!

I would highly recommend Erik Patton Photography for any photo needs! I had a great experience with Erik’s team for my boudoir photo shoot – everything from the initial consultation and answering my questions, to a great hair/makeup prep and photo shoot, to my review and purchase. They were amazing, extremely professional and made me very comfortable throughout the entire process. I really enjoyed working with the team and would happily work with them again in the future! Beautiful pictures and a great experience from end-to-end!!

Our Inspiration: Bruno Dayan

Bruno Dayan is an amazingly talented photographer I have been inspired by for several years now. I like his work so much I thought I would share with you all!

Dayan studied Fine Arts and Cinema at Concordia University in Montreal, and now works in both film and print media between Paris and New York. His photographic career began in Toronto where he shot for Canadian fashion magazines. He later moved to Tokyo where he started to shoot videos and commercials for top Japanese artists while continuing fashion photography. He now has a long list of luxury and high fashion brands that he has done video and photographic work for.

What I find most stunning about his work is the emotional qualities he is able to draw out of his models. What also keeps me coming back to his work is the richness of color and texture, and how Dayan pairs that with ethereal or otherworldly subject matter. His is some of my favorite commercial photography that I’ve seen, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Our Friends at the L’Ecole Nuit Lingerie Boutique in the South End

Kristine is the owner of L’Ecole Nuit, a new boutique lingerie shop in the Boston’s South End. She contacted us earlier this summer offering her services to our clients for fittings as well as styling assistance. I had never met her but was intrigued by the idea, so I arranged for Lorna and I to head down to her shop to meet her and see her store.

What I found was a beautifully appointed space that feels more like a luxe bedroom than a clothing boutique. Specializing in European lingerie designers, especially from France, Kristine designed the shop to be warm and inviting while capturing some of the old world elegance of Paris.

Kristine was a real sweetheart and we spent well over an hour chatting about our common interests in photography, fashion, and life as small business owners. Since that first meeting we’ve developed a great working relationship and are excited to bring you some collaborations of our two businesses.
