Women's photography is my passion. I love creating breathtaking images that celebrate the beauty of every woman.
I specialize in bringing out your natural beauty in an atmosphere where you can feel confident, beautiful and safe to be you. I want to get to know the real you in order to create images that reveal not only your beauty, but your true personality and the goddess within. Whether you are looking for glamour, boudoir, business photos or simply a session that is casual and fun, I want to help you feel amazing during and after your session.
I’ve been doing women's photography for eight years and know a wonderful session is more than what you’re wearing or how you look. It’s about your attitude, your personality and your sense of style. I want to capture your individual glamour, in whatever form highlights your personality and unique femininity. My goal is to present you as your most beautiful, flattering and natural you!
Look and feel flawless during your photoshoot with a professional stylist! My stylist will work with you to design a custom look that flatters your natural beauty. A stylist will ensure you won’t need to worry about a thing before or during your session. Just bring your natural radiance, and I’ll make sure you shine during your shoot.
The stylist will be an experienced make-up and hair artist who will focus on making you feel beautiful, glamorous, confident and utterly irresistible. If you have a particular look or style in mind for your shoot, feel free to bring a photo to show the stylist what you would like for your make-up and hair. You can also let the amazing stylist use her years of professional expertise to design a look especially for you, one that best complements the real you. You’ll look and feel flawless during your photoshoot.
If you would like to have a professional hair & make-up artist for your session, let me know at the time of booking.
When you know you look wonderful, your natural radiance will show on camera!
When deciding on a wardrobe for your photo session, the most important thing is choosing clothing that makes you feel fabulous. If you have a physical attribute that you love, select an outfit that highlights it. Similarly, if you feel self-conscious about a part of your body, it’s best to choose clothing that camouflages that area. Remember, the way you feel about yourself will come through in the photos, so the key is to wear something that gives you confidence.
A glamour session is nothing without a jaw-dropping gown and divine jewelry. Bring the gown and I will adorn you with sparkling jewelry. You will look and feel like a princess at her first ball during your session.
Want to feel glamorous and sexy? Your session offers time for various style changes. Maybe you need new business photos, but would like some photos just for you. No problem! Let your mind wander with the possibilities of different styles, or even different personas. Need ideas? I am happy to work with you in styling your session.
If you select a boudoir session, your options are limited only by your imagination. Vintage-themed photos can transform you into a bombshell from the golden era of Hollywood, a World War II-era pinup girl, or a goddess from a Renaissance painting. A more natural look can be wonderful, too. Images from magazines, films or art works can be your inspiration, or you can don your leather for a sexy S&M look. If a nude session appeals to you, I will create beautiful, tasteful images using no wardrobe at all.
Keep in mind that fit matters. You’ll want to choose clothing that shows off your curves. Avoid clothing that is too large, bulky, or doesnt hug your figure flatteringly. Also avoid clothing that is too tight creating curves where you dont want them. Bring a variety of outfit combinations so we can work together during your session to ensure you look and feel amazing.
For boudoir photos, lingerie is a popular choice. Corsets and bustiers can give you shape and support your assets flatteringly. A fabulous bra and panty set keeps things simple and puts the focus on you. A babydoll or glamorous dressing gown is a softer choice that provides more coverage and is a bit more forgiving.
When you’re selecting what to wear for your photoshoot, don’t forget the shoes! Sexy footwear, from stiletto heels to a great pair of tall boots will help create the image you’re after. It’s a good idea to bring more than one pair of shoes to try out different looks on camera.
Where wardrobe is concerned, there is one final thing to consider: accessories. Jewelry, gloves, glasses, scarves, faux furs—all of them can help you to create a fun, unique style that expresses the real you. Your accessories can be openly sexy, like a pair of fishnet stockings, or they can be items that relate to your personal interests or hobbies. Anything can become a prop that accentuates your personality while catering to your chosen session style.
I encourage all potential clients to contact me prior to booking a session to ensure my photography services align with your personality and style. You can contact me via email or online, but I recommend chatting over the phone. I want you to have the opportunity to ask questions, share your thoughts, and be assured about your session and the products you will receive from Belle Vie Photography.
When you’re ready to set the date for your photo session, I will work with you to schedule a time that fits your busy lifestyle. Once I receive your session fee or a deposit on any photography package, your session will be booked. At this point, you will want to start planning the style of your shoot, your outfits, how you may want your hair and make-up styled, and anything special you would like included in your session.
It’s time for your photoshoot! I want your session to be a wonderful and relaxing experience so I do everything I can to put you at ease before and during your session. I will work with you to select the perfect outfits from the items you’ve brought, and then will set to work styling and shooting your session. I focus on making you feel good so that your confidence will show through on camera.
