My 2015 Glamour Self Portraits | Washington DC portrait photographer



This was quite the experience!  We should all feel a little beautiful when putting ourselves out there for the world to see.  Definitely the most makeup I have ever worn, and as I get older I’m noticing I have to use more of it.  I have been really interested in glamour/fashion photography for several years now, and want to start adding more sessions to my portfolio.

nicolebarr2015-glamor-headshot7I created these portraits on my own with just my little guy Hooper as my assistant.

nicolebarr2015-glamor-headshot2I grabbed a few accessories and about 5 yards of pink tulle to wrap around me into a top.


Yes I am brave enough to post the before!  And look at all it took to make the after!  Hmmm…

I took all of these images sitting on the floor against a wall, with a self timer, 50mm 1.4 lens, and a large reflector.




When I’m feeling brave enough, I will post the before/afters of the retouching process.
