Beauty Meets Boudoir And Creates Portrait Magic...
Our clients - both beauty and boudoir clients - are just regular people like you and me. They want to feel and look good. But they also have some trepidation about being in front of the camera as it can be scary to be vulnerable and let your true self shine through. Our clients choose Twisted Wire Design because they want a comfortable, effortless fine art portrait experience to ensure the final result is fabulous, confidence building portraits. Our bodies are beautiful just as they are, and read on to settle your fears and feel empowered today, tomorrow, this week, this year. We can't wait to show you how beautiful you really are.
1. But wait! My body doesn't look as good as I want it to!
Embrace and love your body. It is the #1 most amazing thing you will ever own.
Most of our beauty and boudoir clients are mothers. Have lived life. Have scars. And stretch marks. But all those marks are testimonies to who we are inside and out. Embrace all the life experiences that have made you who you are, and recognize that your body has carried you through both challenges and JOYS in your life.
And trust us to light, pose, and retouch your images in a way that makes your jaw drop when you realize how beautiful you are, and portraits that allow your personality to shine through.
2. I'll look ridiculous because I don't know how to pose!
We are experts at posing and lighting to create the most flattering angles, light the parts of our bodies we love, and softly shadow the parts we want to show in a more subtle manner. Some of our clients say that coming to a session is like doing yoga, where you realize where all your muscles and body parts are as you stretch and move. And we pose right along with you behind the camera so you know exactly how to look your best.
3. How on earth will I figure out what to wear?
Part of your consultation and preparation for your session is to discuss the look, feel, and style you desire. We will send you links, give you feedback on the items you have in your closet, and discuss pros and cons of certain styles to guide you in creating perfection in your finished portraits. And browse our complimentary selection of jewelry we have at the studio to pair with your clothing for just the right look.
4. But I'm terrible at hair and makeup!
We take care of this for you! Complimentary professional hair and makeup are included with every session, so you look your absolute best. We encourage a natural look with our stylists to make your eyes sparkle, your skin look flawless, and make you feel pampered.
5. Once I take them, how do I, my spouse, or my partner enjoy them?!
Most of our clients choose to create a custom, luxury album of their portraits, and intimate sized wall portraits to enjoy in select locations in their homes. During your ordering appointment, we brainstorm with you to determine which products are the perfect fit for your home and style.
