Fine art nude photography in Nashville. Now you can do that here at Boudoir á la Mode. But it's not traditional fine art nudes. We blend that genre with our modern boudoir imagery. For our clients who want to show the entirety of their body in a beautiful, artistic, LESS sensual way, this is it! Fine art nude as a genre, whether it be photography, painting, or dating back to carved figures, is less about sensuality, and more about the artistic shape of the human body, usually the woman. (but not always) It's lighting, posing, and SHAPE. That includes MANY different shapes.
Fine art nudes go way wayyyyy back in time. You could say, it's a timeless genre of art. The Greeks did it. The Middle Ages and the renaissance eras were big on it. It's just always been. And in my view, it's not really sexy, it's just beautiful art. But blend that genre with some sensual boudoir, and you have a pretty nice mixture of sensual art. The vast majority of our nudes are in black and white. It just works well. Black and white photography has always been a favorite medium for nudes.
We will soon be creating a whole new tab on the website, to showcase more of our art nudes. As usual, we keep it tasteful. The purpose of this addition, at least in my mind, is to offer more to our clients. Perhaps a certain lady wants to do a boudoir session, but wants a few artistic nudes to hang on her wall also. We can do that. Or maybe she wants an entire album of fine art nude. We can do that.
Our next fine art nude photo session is a week from tomorrow, as I write this. So we will be showing off a whole new genre pretty soon. Dawn and I are excited about it. We hope some of you will be also!
So now we have two routes a potential client can book us for their amazing boudoir session. The usual route, which we have been offering for years, as most photographers do, is to send us an inquiry through our website, and front here, we begin communication, and then book a session if they are ready. but now, we can be booked instantly online, even selecting your shoot date. (as seen below)
Some ladies see our website, and they know right away they want to book us. So to make things faster and more convenient, they can now grab their date immediately. Our session fee (as I write this now) is $375, which must be paid in order to book a date, and that can be done on the spot now, through Square. (using a credit card)
After booking the session date, then we can begin communications and planning. Dawn is the planning queen around here, and our newest ladies would be communicating with her. There's already some basic info on our website already about planning and preparation, but Dawn will be finding out more about a new client and her dream boudoir session goals, and will be sending her special links to read more on prep.
When it comes to Nashville boudoir photography, we keep on the cutting edge with our lookout sets, and our technology as well. We consider ourselves a boutique boudoir studio, not a boudoir factory. We limit how many sessions we do per month. It's not our goal to crank out 20 in a month! We don't want that, and we don't need that. Each of our ladies is special to us, and we want to give everyone the best...even if they booked instantly online. We will get to know their needs during the process.
So, if you happen to be one of those ladies considering a session (or a man, looking to book his amazing lady), then here we are. You may now book online, instantly.
Stephanie, and our new studio.
So here's a great little story about one of our most recent clients, and our transition from the previous studio to the new one. This is Stephanie in all the photos, and I've selected these images to highlight here in this blog. (all images, and even her actual first name are used by written permission) All the images are from our NEW studio, even though we have many stunning ones from the previous studio. Although our studio is on the square in Gallatin, we still believe it's not too far to travel if you are coming from even south of Nashville. It's a chance to get out away from town, and be "away". You know how it's just sexy to be away from the normal town you live in. In fact, we've had several clients from other states find us on a web search, and come out here to shoot with us.
Stephanie was the last lady we had photographed in the old studio before we packed up and moved it across town to a bigger and better location. At some time in between our two photography studios, we finished designing and ordering Stephanie's absolutely stunning boudoir album. She had told Dawn that she would love to come back as a model for us to practice on in our new studio. We were already fresh off a photo session together with her, so we thought that would be a great idea. We needed this! Transitioning to a new studio, with different colors and different lighting and room shapes is something that takes some getting used to.
So, once we had the studio looking pretty good, and ready for some real photo action, we had Stephanie come on in. I mean, we had the baby grand piano brought up some steep stairs into the new studio. That alone was no small task for our piano movers. Stephanie rocked a few really amazing piano shots, but I'm only showing one here, in order to keep the blog post from being too huge with photo content.
So a big THANK YOU to Stephanie for modeling for us. I imagine she may want to order another album, because her images are amazing, and they are many. Her husband is going to love these images either way, even if only in digital form. I'm going to cut out here, and leave you with a small gallery of images from her recent session at the new studio. Enjoy!
New studio is ready!
We have landed our dream photography studio. Dawn and I have been working like crazy people to get it all designed and decorated in quick time. We both have a very esthetic eye for decorating, and somehow we don't clash on idea. Well, very rarely. We are soooo thrilled about this new place to make photography art!
Above is a photo we shot just yesterday. Many of you are already familiar with Dawn's trademark tattoos and booty, so you know that's her in the photo. Consider it a teaser. By tomorrow, the studio will be ready. And of course, we constantly make adjustments and changes.
We are now located right on the square in Gallatin, TN. Right in the middle of it actually, above the Firefly business, which is next door to Ovation Music and Studios. We absolutely LOVE our spot! We have more natural light to work with than ever, yet we still retain enough dark areas to use our signature style studio lighting. The photo above uses both.
We are having a special wine & cheese gathering this Saturday at 4pm. We will have a solo acoustic guitar/vocal act present. His name is Patrick, and his voice is one of the most pleasing voices ever. Contact us if interested in coming. We are located at 101 E. Main Street #206 in Gallatin. Let the good times roll!
New Studio upcoming!
Downtown Gallatin, on the square....it's happening. Boudoir á la Mode is moving into a bigger and better studio in April. (as if our current studio weren't already gorgeous). We will now have very high ceilings, some interior brick walls, hardwood flooring, more windows, more footage, and a much bigger and more photogenic kitchen for some very sexy and flirty kitchen boudoir images. And of course, our sexy black baby grand piano will be there, somewhere right in that space in the photo you see above.
