About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Liberation, Confidence, Self-Acceptance and Better Sex! These are the benefits of Boudoir photography and they last a lifetime. I’ve seen shy girls lose their inhibitions. I’ve seen brave women shed tears when they saw how amazing they looked. I’ve seen women fall in love with their own scars. It truly is a transformative experience and I’m proud to be a part of it.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

If you’ve been on the fence, waiting until you’ve hit some weight loss goal, I’ll tell you right now, whether you’re 120 pounds or 300, you are still the same person, and deserving of all these benefits. By all means, keep working toward your goal but don’t equate losing weight with having value. You are beautiful right now. Get in touch with me and we’ll put together a session that’s just right for you.

    Steve Gracy is a good friend of mine. He became that after I first commissioned him professionally. I know Steve will serve you with a spirit of excelence. You will never find anyone who will work harder to give you what you want for your website. Look at the work he did for us at www.theworshipcollege.net.

    I am a musician/instructor who wanted to have a website that would showcase my music and serve as a resource for students who wished to view lesson material online in order to reinforce concepts learned in their lessons. I had worked with Steve Gracy before on several musical projects and knew him to be a renaissance man - very creative with a knowledge of quite diverse subjects. When I found out he did web design, I figured that he would be a perfect match, and I wasn't disappointed. Steve is an idea man. If you know what you want, then he will stay out of your way and just do the job. But if you aren't quite sure what you're after or are indecisive (like me), Steve can guide you in the right direction and often suggest ideas that you might not think of. I'm very pleased with the work he did for me, and now we are doing a bit of redesigning to incorporate new ways of presenting my material that I did not the technological ability to do before. By the way, he's also a funny guy. Not that it matters, but it makes the brainstorming sessions fun!

    Gracy Studios built my website, (www.absolutekarate.net). Mr. Gracy was very professional and easy to work with. He worked hard to create a website that not only looks good, but is easy for users to navigate. My business has increased over 60% with new students due to the website. I highly recommend Gracy Studios to anyone thinking about starting up a new business or improving their existing business. His rates were very reasonable. And if you dont know just how you want your website to look like, then trust Gracy Studios to come up with a modern look that will make your website stick out from the rest.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I keep things very simple so the process isn't too intimidating. I always walk my clients through step by step, helping with outfit ideas, guiding them through poses, making it a fun experience. I want to make sure I understand their needs and make them as comfortable as possible. Many of my clients have never done a boudoir session before and are a pleasant mixture of excitement and nerves, so I always start my shoots out with a bit of a warm up to get things going. And it doesn't usually take too long to get them loosened up. Having great music playing on the system is always a big help and I have a very casual atmosphere in the studio. Having a cocktail or two before and during the shoot is common as well.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have spent thousands of hours honing my craft and done hundreds of shoots. I'm completely self-taught and have developed a style that's very unique and edgy, especially for this region.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I keep my pricing very simple. A photo session is $350 with no time limit. Images and printed products are sold separately and include editing and retouching. Everything is a la carte, so you only buy the images and products you really love.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I spent most of my life as a hobbyist until about 4 years ago when life threw some curve balls at me. I took that opportunity to throw myself completely into photography and try all the things I always wanted to do. I was very honest with myself and decided to just go for it. I've always loved bold, edgy, in your face, sexy imagery and I've made it my goal in life to impact people with my work with no apologies. I think that decision has made me the photographer I am today and helped me become a more genuine human being. I love what i do and i wouldn't trade the experiences I've shared with my clients for aything in the world
What types of customers have you worked with?
All ages, races, shapes, sizes, walks of life have come through my studio. College girls, Moms, Career Women, Grandmothers, they all come with a common goal: to feel beautiful, sexy, vital and confident.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Most of my sessions last anywhere from 2-4 hours. A recent shoot I had was with a young lady who has been on a mission to create the body she's always wanted and had recently recovered from a back injury. It was her first time ever doing any kind of photoshoot and she was very nervous but extremely excited. She was just a bundle of energy and extremely fun to shoot. Once we got her warmed up the images were coming out beautifully, and the look in her eyes when I showed her the back of the camera was priceless. She had seen my work but she really wasn't expecting to look as amazing as she did. I see that a lot. Most women don't realize just how beautiful they are, and I never get tired of showing them.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Choose a photographer by their images first, their personality second and their price third. You're guaranteed a good fit and great results if you do things in that order.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
While it's not necessary to have a fully formed idea in your head when you come to me for a shoot, it's definitely helpful to have a path in mind that you'd like to take. I love a challenge and bouncing ideas back and forth always brings great results. In my opinion the best questions to ask yourself before you make the plunge are "What do you want to get out of your shoot?" and "What's more important to you, price or quality"
