Creating your personalized intimate portrait in your own home has many advantages over shooting it in our studio. This particular client had a specific idea for her intimate portrait and knew in detail the kind of lighting—window light—she wanted for her session.

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. I try not to be fussy when posing subjects. I watch what they do naturally and try to have her interact with the background in some way that’s physically comfortable.

One way we increase communications is to show our clients some of the images on the camera’s LCD screen during the shoot. 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.
