Fine Art - "Lights" Session

One of my favorite things to do is experiment with light and use it in new and interesting ways. It’s been a little while, but I had a friend and model visiting from out west and decided to try out some of the unique Christmas lights I picked up in the Boxing Day clearance specials that I thought might make for some interesting light sources and props for future photo shoots. Ellen, as always, was eager to get into the studio and try something new. She exercised a lot of patience as I tweaked the lights… Moved the lights. Moved the lights again… And again… And tweaked things yet again. LOL! Creating a piece of art takes time and lots of patience. What else can I say? But after all that, the results were worth the effort.

Hope you enjoy the results!

Studio Boudoir with K

K contacted me as she was coming to Halifax from her small town home in Northern New Brunswick for a Christmas shopping trip and wanted to treat herself but also step a little out of her comfort zone by doing a boudoir shoot so she could surprise her fiance with the photos for Christmas. 

Because she was travelling so far we were only able to discuss prepping for her shoot through Facebook messages but by the time the big weekend arrived, she was ready and very excited. 

We talked and got to know each other a little better during hair and make-up and looked through the wardrobe she picked up while on her shopping trip earlier in the day and the plan was set. K said she was a little nervous because she had never considered being photographed in lingerie and was a little self conscious, but our team helped her relax and after seeing a few frames on the back of the camera she quickly brightened up and started killing it in front of the camera. 

As thrilled as K was when the final images were delivered, I hear her fiance was blown away. 🙂
