Last year Erich was gracious enough to allow me to try a different approach with a boudoir shoot. Before the shoot took place, I provided the couple with a storyline and together we blocked the movements and then I left the couple to find their own rhythm. In groups of 5 and 6 the attendees were welcomed into the space and without intrusion documented the story of the couple as it unfolded. This year we turned the space into a studio and applied the same principles to the attendees, restricting their direction and pushing them to use their cameras as a tool to preserve the moments as they naturally progress. This Loom philosophy is always an emotional journey for me and in some cases the photographers themselves. Perhaps this is why I strive to encourage this form of photography, to evoke an emotion from the photographer allows them to become actively invested in what they are shooting. The end result is a beautiful glimpse into the world of an artist in her studio surrounded by the adoration of her husband.
