Every year, Ben and I do one photoshoot for our anniversary. The year 4 traditional gift is fruit or flowers… I suppose we have always been a tad non-traditional. Last year, we did an intimate session with my pal Laura Quintero and this year, I actually won a boudoir session with Michael and Carina to […]

DC Studio Rental | Northern Virginia Natural Light Photo Studio

I have been drawn to the idea of intimacy on film for quite some time now. About a year ago, Ben and I did an intimate portrait session in our condo. Since I drag my poor husband in front of the camera about once a year, he is well versed in all of the possible […]

Project Passion | Intimate Portrait Sessions | Virginia Studio Photographer Kir Tuben

When B arrived for her boudoir appointment, I nearly stopped breathing! Since most of my clients book me online, I rarely know what they look like before they arrive at my studio. B looked like she stepped straight out of a magazine! I felt more like I was shooting a model than an actual client!

When L told me she wanted to gift her groom with some sultry bridal boudoir, I was over the moon! I just adore this bride and was thrilled to honor her wedding bod through imagery! These images will forever be frozen in time so when she is old and grey, she can look back and remember her youth and how it felt to be a bride to be.

When D told me her vision for this session, I about died of excitement. D and I grew up swimming outside together so we have always been used to being somewhat naked in public. Swimmer girls have no shame when it comes to their bodies so when D wanted to celebrate her bridal bod with an outdoor boudoir session on the beach, I was all about it.

Outdoor Boudoir Session | South Florida Boudoir Photos | Kir Tuben Photography

I love it when clients let me get creative. D is in the prime of her life: she is a successful business owner, single, in incredible shape… I felt honored to be able to capture this time in her life when she is killing it. D also let me get super creative with these images which I LOVE! She is fearless in front of the lens and it really paid off.
