I'm going to get more and more open as I write these blogs. I want you as the reader to know me, the real me.
First, it's true, the vast majority of boudoir photographers are female. There are some extremely talented ladies across the globe. I also recognize there are probably a group of clients who would only choose a female boudoir photographer and I completely understand that.
There are a good portion of women and some who have been my clients that say they specifically preferred a man capturing these images. Why you ask? Because ultimately most of the images were for a guy and they felt like my style was more natural, simplistic and less "steamy lingerie" and more tasteful "men's magazine"
I don't take most of the typical shotgun, -Do this for that- approach to capturing my clients. I invest a lot of time. From the start, I may spend 5-10 minutes texting or messaging someone then setting up the initial consultation. This creates the opportunity for me to really get to know YOU. This affords me 2 main things. 1. by getting to know my clients personally I discover things that are specific to YOU and therefore can shoot you in a way that is pleasing and meaningful because it was designed only for you. 2. Also by investing time into my clients and listening to their needs and expectations, I create an experience they can obtain anywhere else which helps ease their discomfort and melt their apprehensions away.
" Ok, that sounds pretty amazing but I'm still not sure I would feel comfortable. What else can you do to put me at ease?"
It's so great you asked that! One major thing that I have done to further put you at ease is partner with an amazing make-up artist. Having another woman present gives you peace of mind and a sense of security. In addition, you will be looking and feeling amazing which is just the boost of confidence we need to capture the best you possible.
Want more reasons to say yes? Good! Don't take my word for it. Read these testimonials by my clients.... This is Samantha. She was 5 months pregnant with her first child and feeling ... not herself ... to say the least. She was also a bit nervous at first but well I'll let you read on what she has to say about her experience.
It was such a pleasure working with Jeffrey! He was very respectful, helpful, and always did his best to make sure I was comfortable. By the end of our session I couldn't wait to see the finished product! And I was not disappointed! The photos turned out beautifully and really showed the excellence Jeffrey strives for!!
Let's listen to what Mrs. Ruby had to say as well...
Jeffrey made me feel very comfortable through the whole process. From the beginning with just talking over the phone and explaining what his process was, to having his Makeup Artist, Paola there to make me look and feel beautiful. She stayed for the whole shoot and make little touch ups to my make up and her presence put me at ease. Then during the shoot Jeffrey gave very clear direction on how he to move and where to look which was super helpful since I didn't know what I was doing. It made me relax and enjoy the experience. It really was a real pleasure working with him and I highly recommend him to anyone.
My interest, my goal and my desire is simply to capture you in a meaningful, unique and memorable way designed for you. I believe this is not just an indulgence for you or even a gift for a significant other. It's a means to a desirable end. What is that you ask?
To show you, You, Revealed. The You that was and is always there but sometimes are too busy, too hurt, too critical or too scared to be. It doesn't matter what shape size or color you are, and hear this, " You are beautiful". No, not some cliche line. Not some thing I say to everyone but it's something I believe from the bottom of my heart and what drives me to continue capturing women and giving them an experience and heirloom keepsakes that they and their loved ones will treasure always.
Isn't it your time? You, Revealed.
