The overall feel of the shoot


  1. OVERALL THEME: Theme is Modern Royalty. 1-2 models portraying a Marie Antoinette styled boudoir session, the second portrayal of a twist to the legend of the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.  The session expects to be between 60-90 minutes in length of total shooting time for each look. Themes DO include mild nudity on set, for example, model may have exposed breasts on set, but non exposed nipple/areola to the camera. Model may have exposed bottom to camera as shown in style images.

    THEME 1 Marie Antoinette. 

    Marie Antoinette was Wife of King Louis the XVI of France.  She is known for being lavish and exquisite. This will be a boudoir session that will stress sexiness as well as class. The session should be detail heavy, not only to the garments/accessories on the model, but the items in the background.

    THEME 2 Cleopatra.

    Cleopatra was an Egyptian queen famous for her beauty, romance and brains. I want to do a twist of what we know of her as a beauty, and focus on her intelligence as well. Including libraries of scrolls, viles, etc. 

  2. WARDROBE: Wardrobes will be provided by stylists. To include corsets, drapes, sandals, etc
  3. HAIR: Hairstylist will be required for both looks. Marie will have BIG hair, Cleopatra will have twists. 

  4. TIMES & LOCATION: TBD. Times are presented in relative form and not time of day.  Second look, may require second day.
