As Colorado’s premier boudoir photographer, I have been photographing boudoir sessions for women for the last 11 years.  It’s wonderful to watch the transformation when a woman walks through my Boulder Boudoir Studio door and she goes from being nervous about her boudoir session to confident and relaxed within minutes.  All it takes is those first few boudoir pictures in the studio and letting the client see the actual boudoir images so she knows just how gorgeous she looks through the lens of my camera!  I love hearing her words behind a huge smile on her face, “Oh, I love it!  I never knew I could look so sexy!”  That’s my goal of every boudoir session for each Denver Boudoir Photography Studio Session!  Empower women through professional boudoir photography!

Let’s talk about prints!

Before I became a professional photographer we had just started to enter the digital era, and I too, was uneducated about the difference in portraits printed through my professional photographer versus prints through my local drug store. What I didn’t know, and what clients today do not understand, it that every professional photographer calibrates their equipment to the exact specifications of their professional lab of choice. There is actually a device that we place on our screens called a monitor calibrator. I personally use the X-Rite i1Display Pro Monitor Calibrator, which you can view by clicking on this link so you have a better understanding of what I’m talking about and know I’m not just trying to coax you into purchasing professional prints; http://www.adorama.com/GHEODP.html

As a professional photographer I calibrate my monitor and equipment every week to ensure accurate color in my professional prints and edits. See, every screen is calibrated differently. That’s why you can look at something on your iPad then your computer monitor and the colors appear brighter, darker, or just off in general.

So in order to better educate my clients I think it’s easier to see the difference in prints than to just simply describe the different shades and tones every lab produces when you take the digital collection to be printed. I sent three different images to six different labs; my professional lab, Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Costco, and Shutterfly. I knew the results would be “off” from my original file, but I honestly had no idea it would be so drastic!

This first set of images that I had printed and then scanned into my computer are taken in my studio on a white background. You can see my original file and the image printed from my professional lab that I’ve been using for nine years. They are practically identical! This is because I calibrate to my professional lab’s technically advanced printers. I make sure I match the exact calibration numbers as far as levels, brightness, shades, and tones.

This second set of images are from a maternity session taken on a black background with a pink rose. Once again, you can see the extreme color variations from each lab, other than my professional lab compared to the original file.

The third set of images are from a boudoir session taken in my studio’s natural-light boudoir room. There is absolutely no comparison in the accuracy of color I get when printing through my professional lab with calibrated equipment. The other labs do not even come close to printing the tones, levels, or shades of color represented in my original file.

My point in this article is to educate my clients, not bash your local labs. Obviously these labs are great for printing snapshots where you don’t really care about quality…but if you are going to spend money on a professional photographer you need to understand that if you only purchase the digital collection you will never achieve professional looking prints from your local lab or online printers. The colors and tones of other labs will NEVER match my professional prints that are calibrated to my professional lab and printed according to my professional specifications. I do think the digital collection serves a certain purpose, but please don’t be disappointed when your prints aren’t as beautiful as the professional portraits hanging in my studio or as your images appeared in your gallery during the ordering process because you only purchased the digital collection not understanding what it means when you’re in the studio and I talk to you about calibrating my equipment to my professional lab’s specifications. I want my clients to LOVE their portraits and I can only guarantee you’ll be pleased with the professional prints through my professional lab!

I can’t believe I’ve been photographing this little guy for two years! My how time flies! He is sooooooo sweet, and his mom and dad were awesome as we bounced from one activity to the next. Thankfully the weather cooperated and we were able to get images outside too.

I LOVE this picture of dad helping him ride the tricycle.

Need your opinion please. So many of my clients have gone through my Bella` Baby Collection and have asked me, “What’s next?” I’m looking to you to tell me what you would like to see offered. An outdoor park session with balloons, bubbles, swings, sidewalk chalk, wagons, pushing a stroller, and other fun kiddo shots where they are just playing and being a kid? A single session or an offer for 2 -3 children from different families for a discount package? I’m open to suggestions so please let me hear from you. Thanks!
