Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man. ~Edward Steichen
The studio session includes a short consultation. Usually at the time of booking.
there will be a short questionnaire regarding your likes and dislikes, as knowing who you are helps us provide a session tailored to you.
The consultation allows you to look at a portfolio of samples and discuss your preferences with the photographer. we will discuss how best to coordinate colors, fabrics and outfits in those who will be photographed.
Glamor and Boudoir sessions Please peruse our PDF Boudoir info BARE Magazine for prices and more info!
Gainsboro Studio offers Glamor and Boudoir sessions throughout the year. Sessions are available for individuals, or couples can come in together.
For those not familiar with what a Boudoir session is; it is a session that creates tasteful images, that produce a hint at sexiness. Each person has his or
her own idea of what defines sexy, as well as what he or she finds comfortable. It can be cute, fun, flirty or even a bit sensual... all the while
maintaining each client’s particular appropriate level of discretion. Gainsboro provides a consultation before the session, to discuss how best
to maintain comfort levels throughout the session.
These images are often given as gifts seen by your significant other. Make great gifts for Valentine’s or for a bride or groom.

Coordinating clothing with family members is paramount to having a spectacular family portrait. Whites, pastels and earth tones in solid colors look best where prints and patterns will distract attention from faces.
For more information on color selection, please see my short section titled Choosing Complementary Colors at the end of this document.
To make sure your wardrobe is presented in the best possible light, you should first make sure it's pressed and clean. An insignificant wrinkle can sometimes ruin an otherwise great photo. You should also ensure your undergarments aren't visible through your outer layers of clothing. Bra straps are notorious for causing problems in photos. And if you're wearing white or semitransparent items, try to remove tags from your garments. Under certain lighting conditions, these tags can sometimes be visible in your photographs. Although this consideration may not always be possible, consider avoiding wardrobe items that are made out of 100% cotton, linen, tweed, stripes, bulky knits, busy prints, shiny silk, satin, and shantung. The nature of these fabrics and accessories can pose unique difficulties in photography. You should also avoid wearing multiple layers of clothing. Multiple layers can often add perceived weight in photographs and make you appear bulky.
And finally, unless you're very thin, avoid sleeveless shirts, sweaters, or blouses. Even for slender subjects, it's often difficult to focus attention on your face if your bare arm is competing for attention in the photograph.
Do you like to camp, motorcycle, bicycle or do other activities as a family? We can photograph you with your vehicle, boat, camper or any object that defines your family's personality and style.
Mustaches and beards should be neatly trimmed, otherwise a fresh shave looks best.
Bring loose powder to cut down on shine. Neutral lip color or gloss will add interest to your portrait and make your lips moist and not cracked or dry.
Sense of Humor
Choosing Complementary Colors ... a quick refresher course.
Colors like black, white, and dark or dull colors should be avoided.
Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
