Don’t call it glamour photography is something I hear a lot when I am discussing my business with other people. Glamour photography is a dead genre that nobody buys anymore, that nobody photographs anymore. Glamour photography is cheesy, with silly poses, dumb props, and a lot of 1980s clothes. Glamour is a dirty word that you should not use when talking about women’s portraiture.
But I like to shoot portraits of real women. Real women with compelling stories, laugh lines and real bodies. Women who are inspirational, caring, and trying to embrace their own uniqueness. Women who need to feel better about themselves, women who love their families, and any woman who has ever looked in the mirror and felt like she wasn’t good enough. I want to show women a different way of seeing themselves. I want to show women how I see them, and I want to share their stories.
I agree the 80s genre of glamour photography was pretty bad, and it needed to be revamped and revived. But to me glamour photography is not dead, and there is no other word for the kind of photography I want to shoot. It’s beautiful, sexy, empowering, inspirational and of course glamourous.
I challenge you to come into my studio and have your photograph taken by me. Make sure you bring a friend, your mom, your sister or your partner because somethings are better experienced with others. Also book a night out afterwards because you will look gorgeous. Trust that I know what beauty looks like, and I can see your beautiful spirit, the spirit that lights you up inside and makes you that fun, loving person. I can capture it with my camera and show it back to you. Contact me here for your personal consolation.
Glamour is back! How do you want to be photographed?
