I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

R-Rated Warning!~Boudoir Shoots for Valentine’s Day

Lately, I’ve had many people who have wanted boudoir shoots for their 1st year anniversaries, wedding gifts to their husbands and Valentine’s Day. Now, of course to respect my clients, I’ve avoided images with their faces (unfortunately the face shots are the most GORGEOUS of the photos), except for a few where I created a “modesty patch” for their protection.

Anyone interested in a boudoir shoot, contact me! I’ve been inspired by other friends and photographers and therefore I’m also running a special where $50 of your price will be donated to either Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation or Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund.

    Colleen, these are gorgeous. There will be a few very happy husbands this coming valentine’s day :-)

    Bwahahahah! I love that the “modesty patch” covers the face! :-D They are beautiful shots, though. I thought the side shot and the one in the pseudo french maid uniform were exceptionally good as boudoir, though the first shot is exceptional as a mood shot.

    People actually DO this for their significant others? Seriously??? And they didn’t lose a bet or do something really, really horrendous for which they need to apologize (See: Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, et al.)

    Somehow, somewhere, I really screwed up.

    Your photos are lovely, though, C. Can I be your gaffer next time?

  4. Colleen Says:

    Merry - Thanks! I hope so…

    Word - I was SO hoping that someone would comment on the irony of the “modesty patch”

    TJ - Apparently they do…it’s actually a huge, booming part of the business. There are photographers out there who do nothing BUT boudoir/glamour shoots.

    The pics are GORGEOUS! I went to a stagette party where we did pin up photos, and they didn’t come out nearly as good as yours. [I didn't plan it - I would have flown YOU clear cross the country to do it!] Wish you lived closer!


  6. Colleen Says:

    Hey Jewels - Dude, I’d love to visit you up in Vancouver! However, if you end up needing a photographer that you don’t want to fly across the country (and then up to your country), I have a fantastic photographer friend right across the border from you…

    Modesty patches! I wish those would also appear on people’s butt cracks when they bent over.
