Creating your own personalized intimate portrait in your own home has many advantages over shooting it in our home-based studio.

It’s convenient. Since you’ll have access to your own make-up and bathroom to create just the look you want. You don’t have to worry about forgetting your favorite make-up brush because it’s just a few steps away.


Wardrobe decisions are simpler and you don’t have to think about what you want to bring to the shoot. Like your make-up, your closet and complete wardrobe are right around the corner.

Posing is easier too because you’ll have physical objects to interact with. I try not to be fussy when posing subjects. I watch what they do naturally and try to have my clients interact with the background in some way that’s physically comfortable for them.

If you want to be nude or nearly so, chances are you’re going to more comfortable in a state of undress in your own home, rather than in a studio.

One way that we increase communications between the photographer and the client is to show them some of the images on the camera’s screen during the shoot. Not every shot, just ones I like because I don’t like to break their concentration. When this works—and that’s most of the time—seeing how great you look makes the session progress smoother.

Shooting your intimate portrait in your own home is a great option when you want to have the most possible options—and it’s fun too. Please contact us via the Contact tab above and tell us what you have in mind and let’s schedule a photo shoot or a coffee to talk about your own unique intimate portrait.
