Lisa Minns wrote a fabulous article about my Classy Not Trashy Professional Boudoir Photography here in West Palm Beach South Florida which was featured on page 24 of this months November 2009 “the Parklander” Magazine; previously interviewed by the TodayShow February 2008 Valentines Day.

As for myself, Professional Photographer and wife, Fabiola, Licensed Cosmetologist, it was an absolute honor to be recognized throughout the country from the Today Show and now locally within the amazing Parklander Magazine for this life changing form of photography called Boudoir. It is my goal to not only make beautiful images but to impress positively on every individual whom I photograph. I’m humbled by the amazing stories that I hear from past clients on how we had effected their over-all view of themselves and empowered them to move forward fearlessly and with confidence.

Lisa Minns – The Parklander Noverber 2009:

In the age of flash and technology, it’s become increasingly hard to buy a gift for that special someone that will just blow him away. Clothes? Boring. Watches? Been done. Fancy dinner? Very nice, but only if your man enjoys fine dining. Not everyone does, so that can be risky. Vacations? Fabulous, but they can be pricey and once they are over, all you are left with are memories and pictures. Pictures? Now we are onto something! Why not have some boudoir photos taken of yourself and give them to your special man? Seriously! Pictures last forever and trust me – no man is going to turn down beautiful pictures of his woman. From the sensual feminine photographic period of the pinup and Bettie page to the hot cover styles of magazines like Maxim, this fact has been proven time and time again. of course, now the question is … where for I go for something like this? Glamour photo companies certainly don’t advertise this service. Is it weird to go have sexy shots taken of yourself? No way, it’s not weird! As for where to go, there are a number of photographers who specialize in this sort of thing. One of the best places in South Florida for classy boudoir photos is Allure Multimedia. Photographer Joseph Cristina can take you to a side of yourself you never believed existed.

Taking boudoir shots just kind of happened for Joseph. his wife being an accomplished licensed cosmetologist and he being a professional photographer, they had worked together on many projects from weddings to magazine cover shots. After seeing the trashy way some photographers were portraying women while calling it boudoir, they felt compelled to transcend the negativity and bring the genre back by empowering women with their work. Boudoir Photography is a style of imagery that has its roots in the early 1900s and has re-emerged within the last few years stronger than ever.

You are probably wondering about the process. First thing to stress is that the client’s comfort is the most important thing to Joseph and Fabiola. A client has the option of having her shoot at the studio, in her home or at a location she has chosen. She also gets to choose the lingerie, shoes, boas, gloves and other accessories that she wants to wear to bring out her personality and vision of the pictures. You name it … they are your pictures. Once a client arrives at the location, it is all about comfort and style. First stop is hair and make-up with Fabiola. The is when the transformation from everyday women to glamor starlet begins. You think that sounds overly dramatic, but I’m not kidding on this one. Professional stylized hair and makeup application, wardrobe styling, music and aroma; this is where Fabiola’s artistry shines. While this is going on, Joseph is already at work getting to know the client, learning her personality a bit and using his artistic eye to explore the hundreds of different angles in search of the most flattering. Once hair and make-up are complete, Fabiola will hand the client off to Joseph for the photography to begin. Shot after shot, he talks his client through poses, smiles and angles, all while controlling light to emphasize the positive and diminish the negative. Everyone has a “good side” or, to be exact, a “good angle”. Joseph believes it is his obligation to find it and capture it. Almost everyone is nervous in the beginning of the session, but as the shots will show, as the session goes on, the nerves diminish. It is all part of what Joseph and Fabiola do. One of the most important requirements for something like this is a photographer you can trust and feel comfortable with.

When the session is over, Joseph’s work has only begun. He will go over each proof, find the winning poses, and then begin the discreet retouching process. From evening out skin tones, removing blemishes, getting rid of cellulite, massaging other flaws into non-existence to emphasizing the poitives, he will do it. Yes, I do that we are all beautiful just as we are, but seriously, which one of us doesn’t want something retouched in a picture? Although retouching is applied on most images, it is done tastefull and within reason. Having worked on magazine cover shots, plus model and actor portfolios over the years, Joseph is known to retouch much more discreetly then most. His goal is to depict a woman in her most flattering light, while allowing her inner beauty to shine.

In February 2008, The Today Show profiled Joseph and Fabiola. Laura T. Coffey contacted him regarding his style of boudoir photography. During the interview, they spoke about how difficult it is to find boudoir photographic work on the Internet that did not cross the line into simply being pornographic at best. Their wonderful conversation was published on the shows website. Again … classy, not trashy.

Trust me, this is a photo shoot like no other you have ever experienced. I’ve had a photo session with Joseph and had my hair and make-up done by Fabiola. I’ll leave it up to you to decide what that may have been for or what type of photographs they were. What I will tell you was that it was definitely a great experience and the photographs were all so beautiful, it took me almost two week to decide which proofs to have printed.

Bottom line: From the subtle look of accomplishment, stories of empowerment and deep appreciation of the work, I’m truly blessed to be able to do what I love while touching people on a daily bases.

About Joseph Cristina

I'm a full-time Palm Beach based Professional Photographer with over 18 years experience in both Photography and Graphic / Media Production. Formal training was received from FAU and the Art Institute in the late 80's. I've worked within multiple advertising agencies along with having work published internationally.

The studio's capacities are many from professional photography to advertising design and multimedia presentation ie. (Wedding Photography, Corporate Events, Modeling, Mitzvahs, TV and Internet Advertising Spots) to name a few. In this digital age, the number of part-time photographers has increase 100 fold diluting the industry with what are known as "weekend warriors". This has lend itself to a rise of a cottage industry of amateurs posing as professionals, underbidding and misleading only to then produce mediocre, at best, final production work. Clients coming to us for professional photography or media creation are reassured by our professionalism, impeccable service, and final product provided, they have made the right decision in commissioning our studio.
