I had never had Boudoir photography taken before and I wanted to give my husband a special gift for Christmas. After talking to a couple different photographers, I decided to go with James. And I couldn’t be more happy about my decision. He was very professional and he really took the time to understand what kind of look I was going for. My album is amazing and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
“Whether you choose to keep the photographs for yourselves or share, boudoir/ artistic nude photography is an empowering experience, and James Tarver is the photographer to make it happen.
The art James creates is as much about the comfort and ease he has with his subjects as the subjects themselves. From our initial correspondence, to the photo reveal, I felt relaxed with James and had no hesitation working with him in a boudoir setting. James took the time to familiarize himself with my personality, and learn about the style of photographs I had in mind. With the aid of his assistant Alice, James guided me through each set. He was honest and direct, clearly demonstrating an eye for light and posing. Despite the nature of the session, James could tell I was a “smiley” person, and encouraged me to let that shine through, capturing my laugh and authentic person.
His assistant Alice, was thoughtful and clearly honored to be part of such an intimate experience. She provided valuable advice, and was always one step ahead, waiting with a robe between sets, and anticipating our needs.
With a tendency to be hypercritical of myself in photos (aren’t we all?), rarely is one taken I love. However, after a session with James, I ended up with multiple – so many in fact, it was difficult to narrow down. The experience left me feeling confident and beautiful.
James Tarver is an artist and professional who clearly loves his work. I can’t recommend him enough.”
JAW DROPPING! I was SO pleased with my photo-shoot and I cannot express my gratitude enough for the professionalism and amazing work James and his staff provided. He is very thorough and figures out exactly what type of pictures you want and he sticks to your wishes.
James knows how to photograph women so that we look our best (the curves he can see and the ability to pose his models is amazing). Getting your hair and make up done by his staff is a must! You feel and look like a model! Even after the shoot, James followed up with me and we made the best book for my husband!
Thank you to James, make up artist Jessica, and his assistant Alice for making this girl feel amazing! I SO highly recommend him that he may travel to North Dakota and do a photo shoot for my friends!
