Every woman has beauty to reveal, whether she is 21 or 81, or any age in between.
That is the main focus of this book: to show you how to bring that beauty to light.
Have you ever looked at a wonderful photograph of a woman in lingerie and thought,
“How can I do that?” This book is for you.
Have you ever wondered if/how you could look as delicious as that model? This book is
for you.
Have you ever despaired of showing your true beauty as a mature woman when all the
models seem so young and overly thin? This book is for you.
Have you ever taken picture after picture without quite knowing how to make it look as
utterly wonderful as the pros? This book is for you.
Just to start with, here is a before-and-after example what what boudoir photography
can do: a pretty woman made more beautiful by the right clothes, pose and makeup.
Lingerie photography is an emotional art form as well as an adventure for everyone
involved. Your camera - and the vision behind it - is like a magic wand that has the
ability to transform a humble caterpillar into a gorgeous butterfly. As you learn and
practice the techniques in this book, your own talent and ability to ‘see’ the beauty of
your models will give you more confidence. That will attract people you know, and
people you want to know, and you will delight in being able to show other women just
how wonderful they can look.
Seeing this beauty and learning to develop it through these techniques will encourage
your models and the people around them to appreciate qualities that might have been
hidden before. As you develop those ‘photographic muscles’, you will uncover the inner
rewards of your own creativity; these will enhance your life and make you feel valued
and appreciated. After all, as a photographer, you are doing something very special:
helping someone else feel beautiful and sexy at any time of her life.
Our aim here, as a photographer (Madeleine) and writer (Kyre) is to show you a picture
that you have never seen before: the image of yourself as a photographer capable of
greater images than you have achieved to date. We know that you are interested in
photography (or you wouldn’t have picked up this book), and we trust that with a little
coaching (and a few examples) your innate talent will be able to blossom to new
heights. Sometimes we need another person to share their techniques and also to hold
us to a new standard, in faith and trust. That is what we hope to do for you as you read
this book, try out these proven techniques, focus on the images we love to take, and
enjoy your own photographs (which will get better and better as you learn to ‘see’ the
various factors we discuss and demonstrate here).
As you can see from the Table of Contents, we have broken down the material into
manageable chunks. You can use this book any way you like: flip through at random,
work your way through the material sequentially, or just dive in at the chapters that
appeal to you the most. Everyone works in a different way, and our job is to provide the
material in ways that appeal to your logical left brain as well as your creative right brain.
When your whole brain works together as one, the results can be outstanding!
So we start with the overall ‘big picture’: Before and After. We want you and your
clients to see from the start just how big a difference it makes when you use the right
techniques married to your photographer’s eye for shape and shadow, location and
form, and (of course) the right lingerie to develop the beauty of your model.
The next chapter is about Bringing Out the Best in Your Model. Although your ‘eye’,
skill and technique are all essential to unveiling the loveliness of your model, another
huge factor is making your model comfortable throughout her whole experience. When
a woman is able to relax and feel confident, you and she will find it easy to bring out her
natural beauty -- no matter what age, body type or level of sexiness she feels she

Food Photography by Chef & Chocolatier Kyre Adept-French Cook book

Recipes/text by
Kyre Adept, chef and chocolatier
Images by
Madeleine Vite, photographer extraordinaire
Or how to delight your friends with luscious potluck dishes and desserts!
A cookbook based around films, and sent out ut
via the internet? What could be more fun?!
You’ll find that there is almost no wheat, pork,
and definitely no shellfish in this cookbook.
Recipes are marked as vegan, vegetarian and/
or gluten-free. As much as possible, the cooking
is done at home, with a gap allowed for transport,
and a minimum of assembly on site. And
there is way too much chocolate - yum!
Naturally, these recipes are organized by the
type of film that they most resemble:
1. Shorts are soups, appetizers and relishes.
2. Cult Favorites are vegetarian dishes.
3. Independents are fish recipes.
4. Dramas are chicken and duck recipes.
5. Thrillers are clearly meat dishes.
6. Romances refer to chocolate recipes.
7. Comedies are non-chocolate desserts.
Why will you love this cookbook? Because
these recipes are great for sharing: you can
easily stretch them, they travel well, and most
are surprisingly simple to make. So have fun,
experiment, and with a little practice, you can be
the toast of your own film, craft, church, dance
or potluck group!

Befor and After

Professional people needing new branding and social media  images by
Madeleine of madphoto does the make-up Hair and is also a color consultant and provides some clothing as well

Madeleine Choosing the SharpColors for You.....

When trying on clothing, look in the mirror and think, does this color really look good on me? Does this green bring out my eyes or dull my skin tone? Does this orange bring out the richness of my skin or make my face look red? If the answers to these new questions aren’t immediately obvious, keep asking them. Understanding what looks best on you is a skill that requires practice. Try these tips:
  • If you naturally have darker skin, brown eyes and dark hair, consider choosing winter colors. Avoid summer colors.
  • If you have olive or medium-toned skin, green or deep blue eyes, and light brown to dark blond hair, consider choosing fall or spring colors. Avoid summer and winter colors.
  • If you have pale skin, blue eyes and light blond hair, consider choosing summer colors. Avoid winter colors.
Need more help? For a complete evaluation of what colors look best on you, look for a color consultant in your area.
Color consultants analyze hair, eyes and skin to find their customers’ best colors. According to Marcia Levake, wearing the wrong clothes can make under-eye circles appear darker, can make hair appear "mousy" by hiding natural highlights, and can distort the skin tone’s appearance. "The right color can harmonize your whole look," says Levake.

What are actors head shots?

                   Photos taken in Madeleine's studio Santa Barbara Ca
       Theater, film, and television Actors models, singers, and other entertainers often are required to include a head shot, along with their resume, when applying for a job. These head shots are usually more artistic, intended to portray the subject in the best possible light. They often have the subject facing off-centre. A performer will often have head shots expressing different poses and expressions to give a potential employer an idea of the subject's range of appearances or expressions. Those types of head shots are called "looks". However, this practice is less common in the current market.It is still common for an actor to have different head shots for their sitcom audition as opposed to their film audition, but for the most part these would represent a change in attire. The headshots that include a person’s shoulders are called "three quarter" shots
The main purpose of an actor's head shot is identification. Therefore the most important feature of an actor's headshot is that it looks like the subject. Actors' head shots should be clear; theatrical headshots are usually very "neutral" looking shots of the actor clearly showing his facial features.
Headshots are intended to show a person as they currently are (age, look, style, etc.) and reflect their best qualities. Therefore, if an actor's hair is recently cut or coloured, they might then need a new headshot to reflect the new image of themselves. Additionally, if an actor has a scar of the face or moles, it should be visible on the headshot and not digitally retouched out of the image. Pimples or spots are temporary and therefore these are usually retouched.

"What do we need to do, to get ready for our photos?"

Family photos 

"What do we need to do, to get ready for our photos?" 
To answer this question, you must decide on a few things.
A) Do I want my pictures indoors or outdoors
B) How many people are going to be in the picture?
C) Are we going to have the family pet in the picture? 
D) Do we want to match, or should we all just wear nice clothes? 
In my opinion, the last question is really the most important one. I feel that the family photos with matching  white shirts, or blue jeans with matching colored sweaters can be very nice. Some families go a totally different route, and just wear nice clothes for pictures.
I have found when photographing families, the most important thing for people to remember is, just look nice for pictures. Whether you're matching, or just dressing up, look nice. 
Things to avoid before pictures: 
A) Going out the night before
B) Getting a haircut too close to your picture date
C) Wearing something super trendy
D) Wearing patterns, that will obviously not be in style in 10 years
E) come well feed so no one gets moody during the photo shot
F) Tanning too much before pictures. 
This Family photography by in Santa Barbara california photo-shot is in studio.It was shot witch a combination of fine art photography and just capturing this beautiful family together.

Dads in the Lime light

                                 Madeleine Vite of created all the photos below :

Our 234th Dad in the Limelight is Brian Chossek of Garlic Gold. I want to thank Brian for being a part of this series. It has been great getting connected with him and now sharing him with all of you.
1) Tell me about yourself, (as well as how you are in the limelight for my readers knowledge)
I’m a 36-year old social entrepreneur who bypassed Wall Street and other traditional MBA opportunities to help start businesses that make a difference.  I’m also the proud father of a 10-month old and proud participant in the life of my fiancee’s 17 and 21 year-old daughters.

Since 2003, I’ve served as President of Seven Oaks Farm, where we make and market break through, certified organic, consumer goods products including our Hand Crafted Gourmet food line, Garlic Gold.  In addition to my efforts at Seven Oaks, I serve on the Board of a variety of non-profits, including the World Business Academy, a 25-year old organization seeking to understand and clarify the role of business in society and create a vision of businesses being a vehicle for societal betterment and other lesser known, but equally important non-profits.  I dedicate a percentage of my time, on a pro-bono basis, to other entities and individuals working to make a difference.

Since as early as 2003, we were identified as a Top 20 Organic Company and subsequently profiled in the NY Times and other publications due to our track record of success, social mission and break through products.  Most recently, we’ve begun transforming the personal care and products industry with a break-through product, Aloe Cadabra, one of the first certified to new organic standards for body care products.  As a result, I’m frequently contacted by entrepreneurs and others to offer insights and expertise, a wonderful opportunity, but, another time commitment.
2) Tell me about your family
My fiancee and I have a beautiful blended family with our 10-month old baby boy, my fiancee’s amazing 17 and 21 year old daughters, and our “adopted Daughter,” Yomiko, who helps us care for Hudson.  Over the past few years, we’ve worked hard to get to know each other, welcome our 10-month old to the family and make sure everyone has the opportunity to follow their own path’s and dreams.
3) What has been the largest challenge you have had in being a father?
Patience and time.  In a small growing company where I wear many hats and a new, growing family, time is always short and things needing attention, long.  Each person in our family deserves time, energy and attention, as does the company and the people we’re blessed to have work for us.  Having the patience to provide that time in a caring and compassionate way, when pulled in many directions, and having the discipline to focus on the most important things, whether at home or the office, are the greatest challenges I face.
4) What advice would you give to other fathers?
Trust yourself and your ability to handle more things than you’ve ever imagined: You have the ability to rise to the occasion when it presents itself!
Flow with and embrace the responsibilities, opportunities and new things you face ; and
Remember to say thank you and share your affection for those that are most important to you.  They are your support system!
5) Seeing that you (or your position) are in the limelight, how have you come to balance parenthood and outside life? If you are currently not in the limelight per se, please still answer this in regards to how you balance parenthood and outside life.
The most important things for me are to identify the most important things that require ME, surrounding myself with good people and delegating those things that don’t require me, making a conscious effort every day to remind myself of what’s most important to me and being willing to let go of perfection and the desire to do “everything.”
6) What have you learned from the fathers that you have interacted with?
That your life will never be, “normal,” again.  Expect and embrace the unexpected.  It only (often) comes around once.  Don’t miss the big moments with your family.  Big moments at the office will come around again.  And, try to maintain your compassion and empathy for those around you, even in the midst of the most challenging, busy times.
7) What else would you share regarding your experiences as a father thus far?
It’s the most amazing experience I’ve had and caused me to grow more than I ever have in a short period of time.
8) What have been the most memorable experiences that you have had thus far as a parent?
Watching our family come together – 17-year old and 21-year old embracing their new younger brother.  The rush of emotion and elation that comes from watching your children experience joy and the return of the sense of wonder that comes from watching a baby experience things for the first time.

If you have any questions for Brian, please leave a comment here and I will make sure that he gets them so that he may be able to respond!
Also, do you know a Dad in the Limelight? If so, please email me their contact information so that they too can be a part of this series!
