NY Boudoir Photographer | Feeling is Living.

One of the most common questions I get from clients and photographers is if I give my clients alcohol to help them relax before a shoot.

My answer is always NO! A big fat NO… but it may not be for the reasons you think.

Yes, of course I want to avoid droopy eyes, drunk clients and liability issues. That however, is not my main factor for my answer.

The real reason I say no alcohol is because I don’t want my clients to numb themselves. I want the women to feel nervous, excited anticipation and their adrenaline flowing. After all, aren’t all those feelings synonymous with experiencing something out of your comfort zone?

When you do things out of your comfort zone, you grow. You change. You are LIVING.

Why would you numb yourself from all of those amazing things?

Something to think about.


PS… this is me and my family LIVING this last week. We are all floating in the Dead Sea together. What a week of adventure it was!

  1. You know, I’ve seen this debate come up a lot and its always been the issues of liability and lowering client inhibitions. This is the first time I’ve seen this particular stance on the debate and made me look at it from another perspective. I like it.

  2. I completely agree with you. And anyway, alcohol is not a good thing to promote, just like giving candy to a child before a shoot. Just crazy. The process of having one’s picture taken is just that…a process, and while the first number of shots may not be precisely what either you or the client is looking for, it will come with the sense of confidence we as photographers can draw out of the client.

    Because of you and your stellar guidance i have determined to work in the field of Boudoir Photography. Thank you

  3. You always give me so much to think about, every time I check in with your blog there is always something to learn! Thank you!

  4. The liability angle is the one I always think about, but having them live the experience makes sense. They will most likely come away from it a stronger, more confident person.

    What!?! not reading any newspapers while floating in the Dead Sea? 😉
