Angel Baby

Angel Baby

How does Lori keep her photography fresh after doing it for over 25 years? Because each shoot is so unique. This excited mom actually called Lori from the hospital after giving birth to her new baby girl. She saw Lori's newborn portraits inside of the OCWMG and knew that Lori would create a beautiful shoot for her new bundle of joy. After doing a phone consultation with Lori, the two of them came up with this sweet, angelic shoot. Lori actually went out and bought teenie tiny angel wings just for this shoot. The result was just so beautiful. Look at the way the sunlight floods into the studio and shines so beautifully on baby. You know that I've talked several times about our beautiful keepsake albums and wall portraits. This is one of those shoots that demands both of those. Wall portraits in baby's room are a must for this family. There were so many photos to choose from that choosing just a couple for wall portraits will be impossible. That's why a keepsake album would be perfect. How adorable is big brother by the way? So dang cute! I think when the family sees this beautiful, unique photos of their newborn, they're going to have to do a cool shoot with big brother. Hmmm....I wonder what kind of fun , cool things he's into? I can only imagine what Lori could come up with. Too fun! If you have a special eveng coming up that you want to capture through Lori's photography, call us. Lori will come up with something magical for each client. If you can dream it, she can create it...
How to prepare for a photo shoot

How to prepare for a photo shoot

  How do I prepare for a photo shoot? I get this question daily. Here's what I tell our clients. The most important thing is to keep it simple, relax and have fun. This applies to everyone for any type of shoot. How do I prepare for a boudoir shoot? Do I bring my own wardrobe? Do I do my own hair & make-up? Do I spray tan? Can I bring a friend for support? All of these are great questions. You'll want to bring a beautiful black bra & panties with you and thigh high's if you want to wear them. If you're doing a bridal or a softer look, bring a beautiful white (or light colored) bra and panties and thigh highs. Feel free to bring a sexy bustier for your shoot. Over the years, we've invested in several beautiful items that you are  welcome to use. We've got beautiful wraps, jewelry, hats, gloves and gorgeous feather boas. We have a large wardrobe, hair and make-up room. You can upgrade your shoot to include hair & make-up if you would like. We ask that all clients come with their hair styled as they normally wear it and we will add soft curls & spray to their hair. If we are doing your  make-up, we like to do the full make-up for you. We've got every colors for every skin tone. Our photographers are also highly trained make-up artists. Then there's the spray tan question. No, no, no, please don't spray tan. Spray tans on occasion can be nice but never before a shoot. You just don't know how the color will turn out or how even the coverage will be.  You also wouldn't want any of the color to rub off on your clothes or the sheets during the shoot. We know how important it is to bring a friend for moral support. Boudoir shoots can be a little intimidating if you haven't done one before. Please feel free to bring a friend with you however, for your sake, we don't allow friends, boyfriends or husbands on the set. We want you to feel your most comfortable and not self conscious. Last but not least, don't wait until your body is in "perfect shape". Most of us never feel like we're in the best shape. Trust that our photographers will play upon your finest features and create beautiful works of art for you....
