Just having some fun.

This girl has been my favorite person to take photographs from for a long time. She is just absolutely georgous, a true natural beauty, in my opinion. She is a bit too young for boudoir photos, so I decided to grab her for just a regular mini-session. I was thrilled with how well these photos turned out. I haven't had time to edit any of these so you get to see them beforehand! Enjoy and please let me know what you think!



     Bare with me as I try to update the blog with all the posts I have been keeping in the back of my mind. There are alot of things that we need to work on aquiring as we go along. I do not have a professional flash and that is the number one thing that I am going to and need to buy. I also need to buy Photoshop CS. My husband is working on that one... considering it is expensive.  I would also love to buy some backgrounds and studio lighting.

    I am constantly on the lookout for great props. I am trying desperately to find the perfect vintage chair and/or couch. Also I would absolutely love to have a great supply of corsets and ligerie that I can offer to clients, if they do not have anything to wear.

     Sophia is pretty much set with her make-up. We need to get a good supply of false eyelashes, and a broad range of foundation though to have on hand.

   I  need to find someone who would be willing to work with me and do hairstyles for my clients. :-) If you do hair or have any suggestions please feel free to let me know! Also please, please, please give me your honest feedback/criticism on the photos. I will never get any better otherwise. I know the first few sessions, I had problems with lighting, as I was working under florescent lights but I am working on it. But, let me know what you think! Most importantly, let me know if you would pay me to take your photos! That will be my clue as to when I am ready. :-)

First Session

     This was my first Boudior Photo Session. It was purely experiemental. I didn't even shoot in the raw but I wanted to just get a feel for it. I wanted to play around with poses and props and just see if I could make it work. Despite some issues with lighting, we had alot of fun. Here are a few from that session.

Part One



Part Two

Here we go!

      My very first blog post. I feel so official. :-) Anyway, let me give you a little introduction about myself. My name is Stephanie. I am a 28 year old wife and mom to two wonderful little boys. They are my life. Because of that I have decided to open my own photography business so that I can spend as much time with them as possible. They grow up entirely too quickly, and I don't want to miss a single moment!

      I graduated from the College of Saint Elizabeth with a BA in art. I have taken photography classes and have enjoyed taking photos for many years. I have always found myself bringing my camera along wherever we go and taking entirely too many pictures. I love, love, love to do portrait photography. It's my passion. At the moment, my focus is on glamour boudoir, but really, I just love taking photos. I find the human body beautiful and would love to be able to offer to women (and men, any takers???) the chance to look and feel sexy. I really would like to give women the full experience, not just the photos. Our Pink Boudoir Photography will be offering hair and make-up along with the photo sessions.

For the moment, as I build up my Pink Boudior portfolio, all my photo sessions are free of charge! Anyone who is interested in the Central/northern, NJ area, please feel free to contact me. As a thank you, I will give you a cd of your edited images, to do as you want with them. :-)

My sister, Sophia, is my right hand girl. She will be doing make-up and helping me out along the way, in terms of making decision with fashion, props, poses... etc... When available, my sister Theresa, will be acting as my photography assistant.

Over the next few days, I will be uploading a few of my favorite photos from recent photo shoots. So please check back and check out my photos. :-)
