Brandy L.

Since not a lot of our clients will let us share photos for privacy reasons, we occasionally have a need for a “model”. In this case, it was Brandy, a good friend of our makeup artist, Kerri.

A busy mom with three kids, she was happy to spend some time with us in the studio. She said it great for her to feel “like a woman again”, which for us, is a great compliment. Throughout the shoot she was brimming with confidence and showing her some pictures as we shot made her feel even better about herself. She rocked the entire shoot!

We did a couple of different looks, one with a body suit and a second with a man’s white shirt. To match the lighting and feel, Kerri started with a lighter look and then moved to something darker.

Her photos have been well received on social media by all of her friends. And as a result we’ve had a few people reach out about doing their own shoots. If you’re interested in learning more about it, we’d love to hear from you!

A boudoir shoot with Ms. G.

We’ve been running a contest to win a free shoot as part of a promotion we’ve been running on Instagram. Ms. G. was selected for January! She wanted to do a boudoir shoot as a gift since the timing was right for Valentine’s Day.

She brought with her three outfits. One was a pretty floral combination in white, another a beautiful emerald green lingerie combination, and for her final look, a lacy black bra and panty set. This was the perfect combination for a lighter soft feminine look as well as some darker sexier shots. And Kerri did her magic with the makeup looks to match.

Here are a few of our favorite images. Interested in a boudoir shoot of your own as a gift? Get in touch! We’d love to hear from you!

A shoot with Liv

A couple weeks ago I photographed a few ladies on the same day for a boudoir Valentine’s special. It was a long day for both myself and makeup artist Kerri, but in the end it was very well worth it as we got some very special images for our clients. One of whom was Olivia. Liv, as she’s more commonly known, is a model represented by modeling agencies both here in Boston and in New York City. She’s done a lot of commercial and fashion work, but never done a shoot just for herself. So when she found out we were running a series of short shoots, she got in touch. And I’m glad she did. We went for a couple of different looks, one a more traditional soft and pretty boudoir look of a bra and panty set with a bulky cable knit sweater. For the second look, we went with a denim button down, panties, and knee high socks for a more just-rolled-out-of-bed sensual look. For makeup, we started with a lighter look and moved on to something a little darker to add a little more edge. I love the way the images came out, especially in the black and white. Liv is a real pro in front of the camera and I think the final images really show it.

Outdoor Fine Art Nude Portraits

Nude portrait at the pond In addition to shooting boudoir and some commercial work, I’ve been working on and off over the years creating a series of outdoor fine art nude portraits. I shoot these for my own creative outlet to keep things fresh and interesting. The locations are outdoors in the natural environment, be it the forest, beach, or a grassy field. My approach to this work is to keep planning to a minimum and just let the creativity happen during the shoot. Just myself and the subject, nothing complicated. Shooting early in the morning, I wander around looking for great light and an interesting composition. From there I find a quiet, introspective pose that sets the tone of the image. A beautiful woman in a beautiful setting. Perfect. This particular image was taken about three years ago with a model friend of mine at a location about 20 miles north of Boston. I’m currently working on a website for this work but until then, follow me on Instagram at @erikpattonphoto if you want to see more. –Erik
