Who Do We Think We Are?

 

Felix and Sara would love to meet you. We dig adventurous, different, aesthetes, which you are if you’ve read this far. We love showing people that having their picture taken can be fun and liberating instead of awkward and excruciating.

Here’s the scoop about us: We met each other at Disney World and have been married for twenty six years. We have two awesome kids: Dash, who is eighteen and is incredibly serious about video games, and Magali, who is fifteen and can tell you everything you could ever hope to know about Justin Bieber and nail polish.

We are all kind of geeky. We like sci-fi and musty museums, weird movies and long books.

And we make art. We can prove it if you call or send us an email 🙂

More About Felix

me Once Felix was in CVS buying some honey roasted cashews. There was one line at the register and two registers open. When one of the registers became free a lady who wasn’t in line quickly stepped up to make a purchase. Maybe she didn’t realize there was only one line but it’s doubtful. He didn’t say anything, though.


Felix’ original rock band lost the “Battle of the Bands” in a tiny club in Orlando to a Ratt cover band. But the important thing is that they had fun and nobody got hurt.


Felix and Sara’s family were walking around in Harvard Square when their six year old daughter, Magali, decided she didn’t want to carry her American Girl doll around and asked Felix to return it to the car for her. As he walked to the car shifting the doll from hand to hand he realized that there is no way for a forty year old man to look cool carrying an American Girl doll through the crowded streets of Harvard Square.


When Felix was four years old he was examining a bug or something on the ground when his three year old brother peed on Felix’ head. Felix was really upset and ran into the house enraged and crying. When he told his mother and all her dinner guests what happened they all started laughing. But it’s not funny.


When Felix was eleven his father bought the wrong size bag ties and couldn’t tie a bunch of cables together because the ties were too small. Felix suggested his father try linking two ties together. His father told him he was “pretty smart.”


Felix has what borders on a disability when it comes to shopping. If Sara sends him to the store to get a box of Cheerios, he will stand in the aisle staring at the wall of choices until it all becomes a huge blur of screaming text and colors. He is unable to differentiate between brands and shapes and names and he quickly becomes paralyzed with overwhelm. Sara does most of the shopping for the family.

More About Sara

Sara Sara seriously doesn’t like vegetables. She’s living proof that you can grow big and strong without eating your greens. So I guess your mom was wrong.


When Sara was five she was at a birthday party and was scared of the clown. Then the clown turned out to be her dad. Now she’s scared of her dad. (Just kidding)


When Sara was tiny there was a little fairy gnome sculpture in one of the windows of her family’s garage. She would take special trips to the garage just to see it. Sometimes she would go out there for a visit and it would be gone. And then she would come back and it would be back. That’s because it came to life and went on little walks by itself.


Sara sneezes really loudly. Like, really loudly. Everyone in the room jumps and the guitar on the wall rings for several seconds afterwards. It’s pretty impressive.


Sara loves Coca-cola. It’s her favorite drink. She drinks a lot of it. Is Pepsi OK? No.


In the car, Sara forces her children to listen to NPR instead of Ariana Grande, for some reason. “Earbuds going in,” says twelve year old Magali.


Sara’s older sister said that when the flowers next door got ripe they turned into bees. Sara always walked around the hedge instead of through it.


Sara tries to make all animals look at her. Especially little furry ones. She just wants to pick you up and rub you on her face! You’ll like it! But they probably wouldn’t.

boudoir

OMG!

Boudoir photography? I could never do that!

It seems crazy, right? But you won’t believe how beautiful and empowered you’ll feel by stripping to your unmentionables for the camera. You’ll really see yourself the way THEY see you. Hollywood and Madison Avenue spend billions trying to convince you that you aren’t pretty enough, young enough, thin enough. But we will show you that you are. Your time is NOW. When you’re awesome! Boudoir photography, it’s such a cool thing to do for yourself and for someone else you love.

 

 

But, but, but... FAQ

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?

Our studio is in a really cool building in Central Square in Cambridge. We are on the 4th floor… But it’s totally worth it.

686 Massachusetts Avenue
Secret Clubhouse at the Top of the Tree (aka: 4th floor)
Cambridge MA 02139

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Call anytime or send us an email form by clicking the CONTACT button below. 617-515-0128

WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULING POLICY?

We require 48 hours to reschedule a shoot. You can call us and we’ll cancel your appointment and then you simply go back online and make a new one. If you cancel without 48 hours notice there will be a $25 rescheduling fee. This is because that time will be blocked out and we will be standing there missing you, probably just taking pictures of each other.

WHY IS THERE A SHOOTING SESSION AND A VIEWING SESSION?

The shooting session is where you come to our cool studio and look sultry in front of our camera. Then, as soon as the very same day, we have you come back and we show you the results of our, and your, work. We talk about why we like the ones we picked and we help you choose prints, albums, etc.

Plus we get to hang out with you more than once 🙂

I’M NOT A SUPER MODEL AND I’M UNCOMFORTABLE HAVING MY PICTURE TAKEN. I’VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE. WILL I SURVIVE?

Probably. We won’t pressure you to do anything you are uncomfortable doing. We are super professional, respectful, and we know how to make all different body types look great. Sara has modeled boudoir herself and knows exactly how you feel. She’ll help guide you through. Trust us. The awkwardness wears off quickly and soon you are having a blast. It’s fun… Really!

I AM A SUPERMODEL AND I ALWAYS LOOK AWESOME. I DON’T HAVE A QUESTION. I JUST WANTED TO PUT THAT OUT THERE.

Nice.

DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?

We do not provide hair and makeup services because we want you to look like you. Makeup should be pushed just a small step or two beyond how you normally wear it. If you aren’t comfortable doing your own, many salons and premium makeup counters offer these services. You should find someone you connect with. But seriously, you don’t have to glam it up. Just be you.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? DO YOU SUPPLY CLOTHING?

We do not have lots of clothing options here beyond a few sheer robes and a shirt or two. We do have veils for our brides out there.

For the shoot bring lingerie options that make you feel sexy.  Don’t forget shoes, boots, hats, and accessories- if you’re not sure, bring it. It’s better to have too many options than not enough and we can help you narrow it down.

Think about bringing something that has real meaning to you or your mate- is one of you a gourmet cook, musician, kick ball player? You could bring pots and pans, a snare drum or guitar, a kick ball or team t-shirt, running shoes. Bring your legos, his favorite book, your bonsai tree, his shaving kit, your sun hat, his dark glasses… Be creative and personal 🙂

On the day of the shoot you should wear very loose fitting clothing. Those creases caused by your clothing take longer to disappear than you think and don’t look good in pictures.

And here’s where to go to get ready for your Boudoir Shoot:

Forty Winks in Harvard Square (56 JFK Street) We love this adorable little lingerie shop. And the owners, Rachel and Meredith, are the coolest, most approachable people ever. You’ll love them.

ARE YOU GUYS OK WITH NUDITY, IF I CHOOSE?

We are great with shooting artistic nudes and provide a really safe, comfortable environment.

WILL OTHER PEOPLE SEE MY PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE OR FACEBOOK?

We maintain copyright to all our images but will not use any image without your consent.  We won’t post anything anywhere without your written permission.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND SO I’LL FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE?

Absolutely. We are nice to everybody.

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OUT MY WRINKLES AND SCARS, MAKE ME 10 YEARS YOUNGER, AND 20% HAPPIER?

We don’t want you to look like a super fake version of yourself from a planet that has no gravity and is free from the constraints of time. But we do a little correcting- we’ll hide some flaws and bumps and bulges but we really want you to look like you- the best you. And we do most of that with posing. Sara keeps a watchful eye to make sure you are always looking your best during the shoot.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE IMAGES FROM THE SESSION?

All your images will be presented to you at the viewing session where you will place orders for goodies. Prints and albums are ready within four weeks of the viewing session. Digital images are ready immediately after the viewing session.

How Much?

You can take some time just for yourself to feel beautiful. A boudoir photo session with Felix and Sara gives you that. And the images and album we create let you remember how amazing you are right now. We want you to look back on these images in twenty years and wonder why you were so hard on yourself! It makes a great gift for you or that someone who already sees that powerful goddess in you. We provide a comfortable and fun atmosphere that allows you to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera. Our typical client spends between $700 and $1500 total on her entire boudoir experience with us. We realize that money is a good excuse not to do something nice for yourself so we’ve decided to make the session fee complimentary. We take a $50 deposit to hold your date and it all goes towards the purchase of images after the session. Here’s whatcha get:

•We schedule plenty of time on the day of the shoot to sit down together and plan how the session will go. We are always available for phone consultations before your session.

•At least one hour of shooting time with Felix and Sara.

•Unlimited outfit changes.

•Viewing session scheduled as soon as the same day.

•We show you twenty+ awesome images and a fully designed album for your consideration.

•Quick turnaround: Digital images are available immediately and albums and prints usually take four weeks but can be rushed.

•Our style focuses on who you really are. We rely on you to provide your own hair and makeup because you know you better than anyone. 🙂

head shots

YOU ARE APPROACHABLE, CONFIDENT, FUNNY, COOL, AND AWESOME!

Does your head shot tell the world that? Let’s help you.

 

Most people can’t tell the difference between good photography and great photography. And for a lot of people, it doesn’t matter. But for your head shot the difference between good and great might be the difference between getting the client or not. A good head shot shows what you look like. A great head shot shows who you are and, more importantly, what it’s like to work with you.

We are an emotional species that makes irrational and unfair judgements based on tiny pictures. Let’s make your tiny picture great.

 

Head Shots FAQ

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?

Our studio is in a really cool building in Central Square in Cambridge. We are on the 4th floor… But it’s totally worth it.

686 Massachusetts Avenue
Secret Clubhouse at the Top of the Tree (aka: 4th floor)
Cambridge MA 02139

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

For head shots, which is all about the face, you want to keep the clothing as neutral as possible. Avoid crazy patterns, words, etc. But it is also about you and you should dress how you normally dress. You might want to bring multiple outfits so we have a choice. For actors you probably want to bring a tank top or something that shows your shoulders, as well.

DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?

We do not have in house hair and makeup. We want you to look like you- and a stranger applying your makeup probably isn’t the best way to achieve that.

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OUT MY WRINKLES AND SCARS, MAKE ME 10 YEARS YOUNGER, AND 20% HAPPIER?

We strive for a naturalistic approach to head shots. We want images that look like you- the best you- not a fantasy version from a world without gravity and the dimension of time 🙂 We work with angles and light to minimize the things about which you are insecure and enhance the things about you that rock. We do remove blemishes and transitory imperfections but we try to keep it real, yo.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU SHOW ME?

We start the session by photographing a few images and then showing them to you so we can all talk about what works and what doesn’t. Then we go again armed with our new knowledge. We repeat this process until you love the images. We gently coach and give you killer tips that make you look great along the way. We end up showing you lots of images and you pick only the ones you love

HOW MUCH MORE ARE EXTRA DIGITAL IMAGES?

It is $300 for the session and your favorite three images. If you want more, it is $100 extra for all the other good ones (probably 15-20 total images).

CAN I BRING A FRIEND TO THE SESSION?

Absolutely. We are nice to everybody.

WHEN DO I GET MY IMAGES?

We give you the digital images from the session the same day- either by email or Dropbox link. Prints take four weeks to be mailed to you.

CAN YOU COME TO OUR OFFICE AND PHOTOGRAPH OUR ENTIRE STAFF?

We sure can. The pricing works out like this:

$250 per person (minimum 4 people)
$1500 5-12 people
$2000 13-20 people

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Call anytime or send us an email form by clicking “CONTACT” below. 617-515-0128

How Much?

Our head shot sessions are $300 and include your favorite three hi res digital images from the shoot. We photograph you at our home studio in Cambridge. The session takes about an hour. We photograph you a little, show you the results on a projector, talk about what works and what doesn’t, and then photograph you some more. We go back and forth until you love the images.

family

THE KEY WORD IS “NATURAL”

We’re not all posey-pose. And we don’t say “Smile!”. We photograph you and your family as who you are. We like kids who misbehave and are uncomfortable in a button down shirt.

 

 

Family FAQ

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

We really want family portraits to be about who you all are as a family. We like people to dress how they normally dress. Don’t get all dressed up. Don’t all wear the same khaki pants and white shirt- that’s dorky. Unless, of course, you normally all wear the same khaki pants and white shirt in your life. In which case that isn’t dorky at all. It’s… uhmm… cool.

We recommend you stay away from crazy patterns, super bright colors, and T-shirts with huge heads on them. We want this to be more about your head.

It’s no problem, of course, if you want to dress up a little… we just recommend not going crazy with the kids in ties and shiny shoes looking all uncomfortable.

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OUT MY WRINKLES AND SCARS, MAKE ME 10 YEARS YOUNGER, AND 20% HAPPIER?

We strive for a naturalistic approach to our portrait sessions. We want images that look like you- the best you- not a fantasy version from a world without gravity and the dimension of time 🙂 We try to take images of not just what you look like, but who you ARE. So, no, we do not use extensive Photoshop. We do, however, remove blemishes and transitory imperfections but we try to keep it real, yo.

WHY IS THERE A SHOOTING SESSION AND A VIEWING SESSION?

The shooting session is where we come to your home (or wherever you’d like us) and photograph your crazy family or kid(s) or totally normal family or kid(s). Then, as soon as the very next day, we have you come to our studio in Somerville where we shine our favorite images on a movie screen. We talk about why we like the ones we picked and we help you choose stuff, like prints, albums, etc.

Plus we get to hang out with you more than once 🙂

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?

Here’s where we are located:

686 Massachusetts Avenue
Secret Clubhouse at the Top of the Tree (aka: 4th floor)
Cambridge MA 02139

There is some street parking and a few lots nearby.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU SHOW US?

We usually end up with around 20 or so images. We also put together an album so you have the option of having all the images in physical form.

WHAT IS A DIGITAL FILE?

A digital file is a digital version of a single image that you can upload to Facebook, send to grandma in an email, make prints at a photo place, draw moustaches on in Photoshop, etc.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE IMAGES FROM THE SESSION?

All your images will be presented to you at the viewing session where you will place orders for goodies. Prints and albums are ready within four weeks of the viewing session. Digital images are ready immediately after the viewing session.

WILL OTHER PEOPLE SEE MY IMAGES ON YOUR WEBSITE OR FACEBOOK OR FLYING ON BANNERS BEHIND AIRPLANES?
