LET'S PLAY PRETEND...
I love doing creative sessions that push things beyond the expected.
For a bold, dramatic type of client, a wardrobe like this daring collection could make an interesting, theatrical debut. Staging it in a rather unexpected manner, I feel this wardrobe could be amazing featured in an outdoor setting, perhaps even on the cobbled streets of NYC's Meatpacking District. With a very couture hair and makeup look, designed by Makeup Artistry by Miranda Richards. I could also envision this inside a museum, with high ceilings and dramatic light streaming in.
As a boudoir photographer, I love to style and shoot fashion-inspired sessions, making you feel as fit to be in any glossy magazine as you would in one of my couture-styled albums.
Working together with me and my collaborative team, you can let your imagination run wild! Stylized sessions is one of the many ways that we create a different, unique choice for women looking to explore their "Etoile". When it comes to NYC and NJ boudoir photography, we will make it happen and exceed your expectations

YESTERDAYS ARE GONE, BUT TOMORROW WILL GO ON | LIFE AS FINE ART BY CATE SCAGLIONE
How many of us spend our lives saying, "someday"...
Someday I'll go to Iceland...
Someday I'll learn to speak Italian...
Someday, we'll rent a villa in Tuscany...
Someday, I'll learn to cook...
As a working mother, my life is full of "somedays". As a parent, I came across this video and it moved me to tears. This teaches us about the fickle nature of life, the idea that loved ones can leave us. The notion that hopes don't have to die after we do. This reminds me to always teach my children to seize the day and live life with joy and wonder.
Take a watch and I'm sure you'll feel the same.
LIFE AS FINE ART by CATE SCAGLIONE: A Makeup Artist dishes her views about life with and without makeup
So much debate about makeup these days. A few days ago, I blogged about the growing "no Makeup Trend" and the Colbie video. It is definitely something that is starting to take root in the photography industry as well. Many of my colleagues are exploring this as a line of their business.
My stylist, Makeup Artistry by Miranda Richards, has her own spin on things:
"I find it such a shame that many women can't appreciate their natural face and unique features for what they are. Insecurities keep them prisoner behind their makeup mask, when it's really something that's meant to be enjoyed.
I remember a time when I couldn't leave my house without a full face of makeup. I would carry all of my essentials with me _everywhere_ I went. Sweating, humidity, and rain would give me anxiety, out of fear that my makeup would run off. Thinking back on it now, that's absolute insanity. It's a burden, and I hate when I see clients suffering from it.
I'm not sure what changed, but there are days now when I'm out all day running around with nothing on my face but moisturizer. On those days, there are moments when I do feel guilty about not wearing makeup, but not because I want to cover up and hide my face. Makeup has grown to be such a close and dear friend to me that I genuinely just love to apply, wear, experiment and grow with it.
Yes, it does make me feel more beautiful; but only in the sense that I'm enhancing the natural beauty in the features I already have, not crafting and contouring myself a new nose. Nothing makes me sadder than when I see a client scrutinizing their face because there "isn't enough" makeup on. It makes me want to shake them!"
