With much discussion, we have decided to close Lace in Light. We are so grateful for all of the photographers that have contributed to LiL over the years. You have provided us with constant inspiration and helped us personally grow with our own craft of photography.
If you are wondering why, this paragraph is for you! First and foremost our personal evolution has taken us in a different direction. While boudoir and female portrait work will always be a passion, our main focus has shifted into growing our photo company. While it could be possible to continue to run this on the side, our hearts are just not there anymore. We are simply not fans of half ass-ing anything we put our hands on. We hope you understand!
What will happen to Lace in Light now? We will leave the website up to help archive this time period of photography. We hope Lace in Light will continue to motivate photographers, inspire client's, and provide educational tips for this industry. If you have submitted to us and we said yes, please feel free to submit elsewhere. As of today, we will no longer be updating this site.

I adore the celebration of femininity throughout Gina Cholick's series! The natural lighting is simply breathtaking and works beautifully with the floral arrangements. This series feels like a symphony to me. Individually each artist in this series, whether it be the model or the photographer, is clearly extraordinarily talented and collectively they become astonishing.
With people and with photography, I have found that what we are actually drawn to are the details: the enchantment of the lighting, the kindness in the model's eyes, the unapologetic beauty of the flowers. Gina has a remarkable eye for details. The feeling of grace evoked by these images is so pure and true. It is a whimsical surprise. It is everything that we yearn for, everything that we are too ashamed to ask for, and everything that we need to indisputably give.

From the Photographer | I used the natural light and supplemented it with LED fill light to keep the shoot feeling soft and natural. To enhance the romantic feeling, I stuck to a shallow depth of field and at times a tilt shift lens.
