Sugardrops | What Is Glamour Photography?
Hello Beautiful, my name is Jennifer. I am a photographer. I know what beautiful looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I also know what it’s like to be a woman who struggles to see her own beauty. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to create the most beautiful portraits you have ever had. I want to show you how beautiful you are; to help you reconnect with the woman you see in your portraits, and be awed by her again.

What Is Glamour Photography?

FASHION & MAKEOVERS

Glamour photography is a genre of photography in which the subjects, usually female, are portrayed in erotic or exciting ways ranging from fully clothed to nude, but in ways that either may conceal or may otherwise not especially draw attention to the subjects’ breasts and buttocks.

That’s the definition of “glamour photography” you’ll find if you look it up on Wikipedia.  But that’s kinda scary (erotic…nude…breasts…eeeeek), and definitely NOT what I mean when I say “glamour photography”.

My work is all about combining fashion and makeovers.  I absolutely love giving women of all ages the rare opportunity to do something for themselves.  Usually they’re the ones taking the photos, so they rarely end up in photo albums—where’s mom?  This way, they get to play dress-up and be a pampered super model for the day!  I use natural lighting (as much as possible) and find the most flattering poses that accentuate everybody’s best features — their eyes and smiles.

 

Fashion and makeup fascinated me from an early age.
I can remember drawing shoe designs when I was in grade three! I adored makeup.  My girlfriends and I would sit in the back of the grade eight science class and do our makeup (We always finished our work early, so our teacher let it slide. We love you, Mr. Marantz.)  I even experimented with new techniques on my roommates at university.  I’d line them up on the floor of our hallway at residence and give them makeovers (I’m thinking that might explain why I failed my first year of sciences at UBC. Hope my parents aren’t reading this blog post!!!).  It’s no wonder that I ended up passionate about this art genre! I probably should have figured that out in grade eight!!!

 

Most women (yeah, probably even Angelina Jolie) tend to criticize the way they look.  I’m definitely guilty of that.  I don’t think any of us ever wake up and look in the mirror saying, “Damn, girl. You’re lookin’ hot, hot, hot today.  Better get a picture taken.”  What we don’t really know is how other people see us.

Our families and friends love us, just the way we are (unless they’re complete jerks).  They look at us and see our heart and soul, not the extra 20 pounds we’re carrying on our hips or the way that little scar on our chin gets red on cold days.  They’re seeing us with loving eyes.  And that’s the way we need to start looking at ourselves.  I see it in a woman’s eyes when I get the perfect shot of her.  That twinkle says everything.

I absolutely passionately believe that every woman deserves to see herself looking amazing.  That “glamour” portrait will be cherished for generations.
