We had the great privilege of photographing one of the Washington area's best young models - Vita - to create some new images for this website. The tough part is selecting the best images - because it's almost impossible to take a bad picture of Vita. Here's a sneak peak at some of our first efforts.
Ciao Bellezza! wants to pay tribute to some ladies who have come to us who understand a basic and important truth: Beauty is not the exclusive province of the young. Playfulness is not the exclusive province of the young. And neither is Just Plain Sexy. These ladies, in our 40 Something (Plus) gallery, have still got it. And fortunately for us, they want to celebrate it!
Many thanks to Judith Olivia Heartsong, the Executive Director at Artists and Makers Studio in Rockville Md, who curated that arts community's Valentine's Day show Decadent - and included 15 of Tony's fine art nude and glamour images.
Many thanks to Inna and Steve, who came to ours studios this weekend for a couples shoot -- and who graciously are allowing us to share some of their images with you... They're our favorite couple so far. YOU could be next!
A lot of women are intrigued by the idea of a boudoir shoot, but they fear they're too timid to actually do it. Here's some sage advice from everybody's favorite good witch!
While Taina's been shooting in San Juan, Tony's been shooting for a client in New Orleans. He and his camera managed to make it to the French Quarter's Bourbon Street for a few hours - where he encountered street performers, boy go-go dancers, tattooed ladies, half-naked women posing for tips, bridal parades, tarot card readers, lots of great music and dancing, drag queen parades, 64-ounce beers and a LOT more. Check out our photo essay!
It's a beautiful, intimate gift - a boudoir album of the bride, for the groom, presented on their wedding night. It's a great idea for any bride - no matter how long she's been married! Ciao Bellezza! specializes in Bridal Boudoir. You can check out our work here.
Never fails - those pesky corsets just won't go on by themselves, sometimes driving our models and our clients crazy. Good thing Taina knows how to tame rebellious clothing -- and she's always on hand to put down her camera for a moment to save the day (and the shot).
Erika Tievy, one of our favorite makeup & hair artists, applied her impressive talents to one of our favorite models, Miranda Marie, for a shoot we did recently. Great job, Erika! You can see images we shot of Miranda Marie that day in many of our galleries.
