The dictionary definition of “nude” is “A naked human figure, typically as the subject of a painting, sculpture or photograph.”

One of the most common comments and questions we get from prospective clients is: “I’m a modest person and don’t want to pose nude; do I have to?” No, you can be as nude—or not—as you want to be. That’s because the secret of producing the best possible intimate portrait is that the person being photographed should be as comfortable as possible. If you’re comfortable the portraits will look better and you’ll be happier with the results.

The very first boudoir portraits that I ever made were in the late 1970’s for a couple that wanted a nude portrait of themselves to hang on the wall above their bed. And yes, we do couples and sexy friend shoots, details can be found in the answer to question #6 on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Our nude photography for clients is typically the glamour nude, that’s a more idealized form of the genre. If you’re interested in a fine art portrait, we can create a fine art approach to nude photography that you can proudly hang in your home as well and will coordinate having an wall-size print made at no additional cost to you—you pay the photo lab directly for the print. In either type of portrait the subject can be partially nude or fully nude, although today’s example partially nude because that’s what the client wanted us to create.

Some images that people want to hang on their wall are made in black and white because they feel the image is more abstract, more artistic. On the other hand, if you prefer something more personal, the image should definitely be in color, like today’s portrait. As in all of the options that are available at Blue Moon, you get to make the final decision based on what you want.

On a health note: Our chief photographer received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in December and received the second dose on January 25. We have had our home and home studio professionally cleaned and sanitized nine different times since the pandemic started so we’re be ready to photograph you when you’re ready to be photographed.
