Boudoir-Sophia

Did you know that we offer boudoir sessions at Bliss? Its a bit of a taboo area I know…So we try not to blast it all over our website and blog. I like to keep it tasteful and proper as best as I can. Its that time of year though when people start thinking about getting something special for their loved one for Valentines Day. Plus its a good time of year to use the indoor studio since the weather is not the best.

Boudoir photography is a lot of fun. I have had many clients who were nervous about having a session but in the end had a great time and left with beautiful images. If you are interested in a session please pop me an email or give me a call and we can chat. We have special packages just for these sessions. And if you have a few friends who want to join…we can make it a pin up party! Im happy to share more information if you need it.

Last year (whoa…okay it was only just last november. Crazy that it is 2015…and “next” year) I had the pleasure of teaching a boudoir workshop for some fellow photographers. The event was held at the Kennedy School.  I take a different approach to boudoir photos by not using strobes (lights with a flash). I find that using strobes can be very intimating for my model. So instead I like to use my lights to make a more comforting atmosphere. This type of lighting can also create great contrast to give my images a little different look.

I wanted to share a couple photos from the event I taught with my beautiful model, Sophia. I used some natural light too that was streaming through the very large windows.  Please note that this session was shot at a hotel with vintage decor. It was a blast and totally possible if you want to book a hotel room:)However typically I have sessions at my studio. It all depends on what you are hoping for in the end. Also something to consider…..When people think boudoir they tend to think “naked” shots. You guys…Its not all about that. Its about capturing your beauty and for me to help you feel beautiful. This can be accomplished in many different ways. Its a celebration of you.  Sophia brought adorable props and outfits that really embraced the vintage feel of our location and what we were hoping for. We shot a range of “looks” and each and everyone one was capturing her beauty.

Project Life explained by ME.

I have had soooo many people see my posts on Facebook recently about Project Life and have asked me what in the heck it was. So in hopes of helping people get a better understanding of what it is…Stacie and I have made a little video explaining it a bit. Im here if you are interested in joining the party:)Our next Happy Hour is Jan 18th 1pm-5pm. This Happy Hour will be complimentary. Please RSVP if you are planning on attending as I need to make sure I have enough tables/chairs set up for everyone. If you have any questions I am more than happy to answer! Enjoy the video…and no making fun of me! I always feel a little silly being on camera:)

Displaying your Bliss Art

I always LOVE showing clients finished pieces hanging in their home. Not only is it rewarding for me to see but it also can give other clients ideas of what or how to display their photos. Or even an idea of what to order in the future. I love our Bloom Collection of frames and proudly hang them all over in my house too.  So today I thought I would share a display in my own home for you guys. Its both a fun share and also an idea. Do you ever wonder where the heck the appropriate place to display those little naked bun (baby) shots? Well how about the bathroom?  Seems like the perfect spot right? This is my newly remodeled (Ill post a remodel post on my personal blog www.babyharlacher.com soon) bathroom with a shot of each of my kids at 6 months. I also added a floral print too.

Here is a couple of pics: (iPhone pics….bear with me)

Another thought for bathrooms (especially for a master bathroom) is boudoir photos. This is a tricky area that people have a hard time hanging a larger print from. Bedrooms can work as well as walk in closets if you have wall space in it. But a master bath can work great. Anyone else hang anything in their bathrooms? I think I have a few clients who may have hung the cute little ornaments in theirs? I would love to share some more fun Bliss displays. Send me pics! Or share in the comments your creative ideas!

Updated Blog for 2015

And we are just about there! A few minor changes to go and the new blog look is complete. I will work on updated the website next but I needed to start with a smaller project first. Re-design and updating photos is always quite the chore. I enjoy the final results though so I know its worth the time.  The biggest add to the blog is the new Bliss LOVE page that I have created. I find that most of my business is from referrals so having a place where my happy clients can provide feedback is awesome. Plus I know how important it is to read positive feedback. I know when I am looking for something I either go from a good recommendation or I am reading through the reviews first.  If you would like to take a peek you can click HERE or find the Bliss Love box to the right of my blog.

I am going to do my best to keep this blog updated with new posts. I tend to spend more time on Facebook but you can’t always write what needs to be said in the small little status line. I think its important for me to share both my experiences and my love for my job on the blog. Plus I love writing about my wonderful Bliss clients too!

Here we go 2015!
