What Is A “Fine Art” Portrait Experience?

All Voulez Vous portrait sessions are fine art creations— but what makes fine art different from other portrait experiences?  Fine Art is defined as art developed primarily for aesthetics or beauty (as opposed to art that is designed for practical function). In photography, fine art is classified as imagery created in line with the vision of the photographer to [...]

Trying New Things

I’ve started reflecting on all the wonderful shoots I’ve done this year, as we near the end of 2019. Photography is a job that always calls for a little creative edge. I believe the secret ingredient to a photoshoot that really stands out is mutual willingness to try something new. I was reminded by my lovely client, Penny, when [...]

You Think You’re Doing It For Someone Else..

  “You often think you’re doing something for someone else, yet at the end of the day it’s you receiving the gift.” These were the words Laura shared with me after our session. Often times clients aren’t sure what to expect out of a shoot. Above all, it has to do with the energy we create together in the [...]

You’re {Not} So Vain

I’ve never understood why women find it vain to have portraits hanging up of themselves. I shoot all styles of portrait work but boudoir is what I am most drawn to. In the 19 years I’ve been shooting boudoir, I’ve noticed a trend of women feeling ashamed to have these images on display in their homes. They are afraid [...]

Pretty Little Things

I've always been drawn to the prettier things of life. The textures and raw intricacies found in the everyday often are what fuel my creativity. When I met Messina working in a local café, I found her personality and doe-like brown eyes inviting. I knew her unique beauty was a perfect fit for the avant-garde shoot I had [...]

Voulez Vous Glamour

Last summer I had the honor of having Tiana as an intern from OSU, where I graduated from.  I was excited to have her in the studio and guide her along with how I work.  We took some time during her internship to play with posing, lighting, wardrobe, post-processing, etc. The images of her in the silver dress are [...]

Beauty Portraits

Beauty, confidence, bubbly, and so smart, Brandi had me giggling through her photoshoot with stories of Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, and teenagers.  These portraits were a gift to her husband for his birthday. Brandi! You are a doll! :) A special thank you to Ashlee & Heather at Primp Salon in Tulsa for hair and makeup.
