Creating your personalized intimate portrait in your own home has many advantages over having it in made in our studio. This particular client had a specific idea for her intimate portrait and knew in detail the kind of lighting—window light— that she wanted for her portrait session. In fact the window that we used for the featured portrait was one that was in a door located in the client’s dining room.

Shooting in your home is convenient; since you’ll have access to your own bathroom and make-up 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 to bring. Your closet and complete wardrobe are right around the corner.

Posing is easier too because you have physical objects to interact with, as in the featured image when she is leaning against the wall. Under these kind of condition, I try to keep posing simple and natural. I watch what a client does naturally and try to have her interact with her surroundings in a way that’s physically comfortable.

One way we increase communications  \during the shoot is to show our clients some of the images on the camera’s LCD screen. Not every shot, just ones I like because I don’t like to break the concentration between the subject and the photographer. 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. Call us today at 720-515-4497 or via the Contact tab above and tell us what you have in mind and let’s schedule a photo shoot.
