Photographer

marti-newkirk-photoHi everybody – I’m Marti! Ask anyone that knows me and they’ll tell you that I’m a very casual person who likes to laugh and “cut up”. I figure if you can’t have fun doing something then it isn’t worth doing because life truly is too short! (The older I get, the more I believe that…!)

Several years ago, when a friend of mine who knew I did wedding and portrait photography called and asked if I would take some photos of her as a gift to her husband. I said, “Sure! Come on – we’ll have a blast!!” And that we did. We had so much fun, that I got to thinking ……and Oh la la Boudoir Photography was born.

With boudoir photography, more-so than any other genre, so much is dependent on the relationship between the photographer and the subject. If you are not relaxed and at ease, it will show in your photos. There is a level of trust and respect that is unparalleled in any other genre of photography. Boudoir photography also relies heavily on the photographer knowing their craft. Light and shadow determine what is shown or accented and also what is hidden.

Typically on a photography website, you see photos of models – THERE ARE NO MODELS ON THIS SITE! The images on this site are of real life customers who have allowed me to share a few images. Only real customers, just like you. I have several more samples that I have permission to show only in person, because due to the nature of boudoir photography, most of the images are intended for the eyes of only one other person.  Discretion is, and will always be, my top priority for my customers.
