Surrey Portrait Studio

According to a famous saying, a picture is worth a thousand words. Indeed this is true. Pictures capture not only the likeness and personality of the subject, but even the mood as well. Moreover, it also captures time, thus keeping memories forever. A picture may be an image drawn, painted, or photographed. However, these days the most convenient visual representation is photography.

Photography is indeed a cheaper and a more convenient method than painting. Perhaps, one of the most common application of photography is portrait photography. Although, there can be many and varied subjects of interest, persons and people are definitely the most interesting of all.

Portrait photography has actually been around since the camera was invented. Since then, people yearn to have their portraits taken, whether it is of themselves, or of their families. This is the reason why portrait photography studios came about. Although, taking a picture may seem easy, there are certainly a lot of factors that should be considered in taking the perfect picture.

There are many important factors to consider in portrait photography, one of which is the lighting. When photography is done in a studio, the lighting can easily be controlled by the professional photographer. As such, portraits that are done in studios are definitely of better quality. In fact, one of the features that can attract clients to photography studios is the lighting component. In portrait photography, it is very important that the subject gets the proper lighting intensity and direction.

Since most families prefer to have their portraits taken, one of the most popular portraiture is family. Certainly, there can be a lot of creative portraiture that can be created for families. This includes contemporary family portraits, children lifestyle portraits, and even baby and pregnancy shots. Since there are endless possibilities of family portraiture, many photography studios specialize in family portraits.

Surrey Family portraits photography studios provide the environment that is most essential in taking the best family portraits possible. Since memories are truly precious, and children soon grow up to be adults, it is indeed very important to keep these memories alive through family portraits that document the fun times that your family have together. Moreover, family portraits are the only way of remembering years that have passed by your life. Thus, to ensure that these memories are documented well, it is equally important to choose a photography studio that can perfectly capture precious times for you.

Therefore, in choosing portraiture studios, always keep in mind that it is your whole life that you are entrusting to them. These include precious moments that only happen in that specific moment of your life. As such, you need to ensure that every bit of life, laughter, love, joy, and time is captured in that portrait that will keep the precious moments of your family forever.

Celebrating Femininity – Boudoir Photography

This article was kindly written for us by Darren Chow.

According to one artist,  nothing is as beautiful as a woman.   The woman’s body is perhaps the pinnacle of artistic skills and the conclusion of perfection. As such, many people marvel at the beauty of women and wonder at the mystery of such a wonderful creation. This is one of the reasons why most art pieces depict the many facets and aspects of a woman. In fact, the woman is probably the most indulged subject in art pieces.

While paintings capture the beauty of a woman according to how the artist sees her; photography captures the woman as she is. One of the most popular forms of photography that captures the sensuality and femininity of a woman is boudoir photography.

Boudoir photography is a set of sensual images of women of all ages. Boudoir photography is actually adapted from the word boudoir, which literally means a lady’s private bedroom. As such, anything can be expected in Boudoir photography.

The main objective of Boudoir photography is to celebrate womanhood and release the sensuality in every woman. Moreover, Boudoir photography is the perfect opportunity for a woman to discover and feel her sensuality. Thus, such is taken as unique intimate photography experience that unleashes every tint of femininity in women.

There are many professional studios around Europe, specifically in London that specializes in Boudoir photography. In fact, these studios offer a wide variety of packages for women to choose from. Each of these studios intends to provide the best boudoir experience that any woman can ask for. Furthermore, different sensual settings and environments are created to cater to special needs and preferences of women. Moreover, Boudoir photography caters to women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. As such, there is no practical reason at all why a woman could not have her own Boudoir experience.

Being in a Boudoir photography session is not something to feel nervous about. Most Boudoir photography studios employ the services of professionals who take care of all the women’s needs. Everything is thought of in these studios including the make-up, hairstyles, accessories, and even a lingerie collection. Women are coached and advised on the perfect poses that would capture their individual sensuality. To top it all, women can actually change outfits in the photography session to depict different looks.

The nice thing about Boudoir photography is that everything is held confidential. No other person sees the images aside from the photographer and the client. The client is given the privilege to view the photos in the private gallery and decides if the photos should be held private or public. Therefore, women are guaranteed with privacy in one of the most celebrated experiences in their womanhood.
