  • I’m Jasmine

    With over 7 years experience in the modeling industry as a "Plus Size" model in New York City, I have learned and practiced all of the TOP-SECRET fashion and beauty techniques to creating stunning and mesmerizing images of women with REAL bodies.

    Jasmine E. Photography, LLC provides a one of a kind experience and unique one-on-one service for women and brides.

The color black and women’s portraits

I never realized how beautiful the color black is in photography and for women’s portraits. I mean yes, we women wear it when we want to feel sexy on those “little black dress” days. Or we use it as a way to slim and minimize the lady parts we don’t like. In real life and portraits, I try to get women out of their comfort zone and away from the color black. Wear OTHER colors. Bolder, beautiful, fun colors. I especially love to glam things up with feminine fabrics, sequins and sparkle. But for women’s portraits, I’ve found a new appreciation for the deep color as a backdrop to place my subjects against. Black adds drama and sophistication to portraits that I think today’s “contemporary” photographer’s don’t play with too often. I’ve grown to love shooting against the color black because simply, it emphasizes the contrast in an individual. The soft, the feminine and the sultry soul of everyone I put in front of me comes to life. When shooting against the color black, I feel like I get to see the real you.

Jen’s Before and After Weight Loss Success Story – New York City Glamour Photographer

This is Jen. I think her story is important because in the last nine months Jen has lost over 100 pounds. With a lot of hard work, blood, sweat, tears and the support of her husband and 4 beautiful children, Jen is a new woman! Like many of us, Jen has struggled with her weight, body image and self confidence for as long as she can remember. I’m sure many of you now reading this can relate with your own personal struggles and desires to look and feel prettier or better about yourselves. One day, after having enough, she made a decision that would change her life forever. Jen opted for bypass surgery. Many might ho and hum at the thought of surgery for weight loss. Listen closely. Surgery is not “the easy way out” as some might want to argue. It’s just has hard as any other diet that exist, if not harder! Recovering from surgery without the ability to consume the nutrition your body needs to heal is physically and emotionally exhausting, and beyond frustrating. Your body goes through an intense and excruciating detox – you know that feeling you get on day 2 or 3 of your diet? Now multiply that by 100 and then compound it with the pain and discomfort that comes with a major surgery. If anything, I believe that Jen is a brave and tough fighter. She wanted to make a change for the better in her life, she took control and she did. Today, she’s 130 lbs smaller, an avid Crossfitter, more comfortable in her own skin than ever! And might I add … A total Knockout!! Doesn’t she look a bit like Krisite Alley? πŸ˜€ Congratulations on all your hard work Jen! You are BEAUTIFUL!

Before and After - Weight Loss Success Story - New York City Glamour Photographer

“Having hair and makeup was such a new experience. I felt like I was literally going to be on the cover of vogue! Every girl should be pampered every now and then. I felt instantly more confident with hair and makeup and wardrobe. Posing was made easy by guidance and it was such fun! When I saw the first image I was in awe. I honestly would’ve cried had I not been around so many new faces but to always see myself as a 320 lb woman and then to see myself like this was a shock to my brain. It was like I was looking at someone else. But to know it sure was me after all my hard work….was nothing short of amazing. Jasmine is a great and wonderful artist with a pure ability to make a woman’s true beauty shine through. I’m forever thankful for this experience.” – Jen Morias

Contemporary Women’s Portrait – How Would You Like to Be Photographed? – Jasmine E. Photography

Whenever I ask someone how they want to be photographed, I usually get “I’m not really sure” or “I haven’t thought about it”.
The great thing for me however, is that although most people never give it a thought, every single woman (or man for that matter) brings their own sense of style and personality to the shoot. I certainly have rules in my studio, about what to wear and styling (no printed garments or logos for example), makeup and hair applications (always mandatory) and posing (suck in tummy, long neck, chin down), and once I go over my rules with you, I like to find out a whole lot of stuff about YOU. What are you favorite colors to wear? Do you prefer pants/jeans to dresses? Do you have anything awesome in your closet at home that you’ve been saving for a special occasion? And before you know it, I get a really great sense of your personal style which certainly helps me tailor a personalized session just for you.

My point is, don’t worry too much if you’re not sure how you want to be photographed. We talk it out together, and come up with a game plan that’s just right for you!
