What is Post Production Retouching and why do you need it

Have you ever seen a photo or a video and thought to yourself, "Wow, how did they manage to make it look so good?" The answer lies in post production retouching. Essentially, it's the process of enhancing and perfecting visual content after the initial capture or filming. This can range from simple tweaks like adjusting the brightness and contrast to more complex edits such as removing blemishes or imperfections. The main reason you need post production retouching is to make your photographs look their absolute best. Let's face it, in today's digital age, visuals are everything; however...

We want to make sure that we aren't conforming to to society's ridiculous standard of beauty; so when you are in front of the camera, we will pose, light and style you to flatter YOUR figure and celebrate who YOU are - so that retouching is minimal. We want to enhance your natural beauty, so we so we don't "nip and tuck" extensively and are careful to retouch your pictures just enough to be the most beautiful "real you". But let's be real. We are real women with real body issues, and most of us would not like to showcase our cellulite and stretch marks in our boudoir photographs - so we complete standard subtle retouching tweaks - included with our products.

We have an entire page on our website dedicated to before & after photos, plus some body retouching examples. You can also check out our social media for our Makeover Mondays.
