As you are most likely aware, the majority of our portrait sessions are women having the modern glam experience, but once in a while I get a guy in on his own, which means I do a lot less hip-popping and a little more slouching.
The other week I had the pleasure of having Rome in for a contemporary portrait session. He joked before coming in that his shoot would be very different than a lot of our women, in that he would most likely be keeping his clothes on (a lot of our sessions end up with boudoir set-ups by the last few outfit changes, as people find themselves so comfortable with the relaxation and professionalism that Sarah and I present). Well, ironically, Rome ended up offering up his shirt a lot sooner than most, and deservedly so. He has been in a personal transition this last year and wanted to celebrate the new him, that includes some new ink.
The variety in our set-ups was awesome and the laughter we shared throughout, lent to the fun time we had.
I’m excited to be sharing with you a small selection of images that embody just some of the variety he and I created that day.
Rome, you are a great guy and I’m glad to get to call you my friend.
