A Great Valentine’s Day Gift | Dudeoir Photos

February 12, 2015 /

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, our clients are surprising loved ones with a special gift – dudeoir photos.

What is Dudeoir?

3 years ago boudoir photography was the biggest trend and it is still hugely popular!  In the last year and a half, dudeoir photography has skyrocketed.  Dudeoir photography is a play on the word boudoir, but focusing on men portraits instead of women.

My goal when we launched dudeoir photos the summer of 2013 was to showcase the beauty of a man in a style that was simplistic in nature, often edited in black and white, showcasing the male form in a way that it was perceived as art or a sculpture.  I was introduced to a book by Herb Ritts from my talented friend Chuck, which showcased profound images of men.   This was my initial inspiration when I launched this genre of photography.

How to prepare for a dudeoir shoot:

I love a little 5 o’clock shadow for the first half the shoot. A little bit of an edgy look on some men.  For wardrobe, men bring a 3 piece suit, classic button down shirts, jeans.  A leather or jean jacket, watches and sunglasses.  Sometimes, men bring fitted underwear and fitted t-shirts, it depends on the look – every session is personalized.

If you are looking for a unique first 1st anniversary gift: paper is the traditional gift, consider a dudeoir photo shoot.

A portrait with Je Revele at the castle is a relaxing and luxurious experience. We are located in a historic NJ castle. If you’re looking for timeless portraits to hang on the walls of your home, please call us to schedule a session.

Awards for Staten Island Top Women in Business | Natalie Licini

December 4, 2014 /

Awards for Staten Island Top Women in Business | Natalie Licini

I have to admit when Lori called to tell me that I had been nominated as one of the Top 40 Women in Business in Staten Island I was speechless.

And when I walked into the reception last night, I was completely overwhelmed sitting beside other awardees including the executive director of Staten Island University Hospital, NY State assembly member, the founder of Hospice Care, A Friendly Face, the Seton Foundation and many of Staten Island’s most respected businesses including the owners of Nicotra’s Ballroom, Party Party Party, Safari Realty, AF Bennett Salon, & Casandra Properties & many more.

In 2010 I was introduced to someone who became very near and dear to my heart.  Camille Loccisano.

Camille lost her son Frankie at the young age of 17.   Camille’s foundation Frankie’s Mission in memory of Frankie helps families whose children are suffering from pediatric cancer.  All the proceeds raised go directly to the children and their families.  In 2011 they helped 40 individual families.

I want to share Frankie’s story with you in hope that you support their foundation and the upcoming fundraisers.  PLEASE help support Frankie’s Mission today by donating online:

About Frankie:

This  September of 2014 marked seven years that Frankie Loccisano lost his life to cancer.

Frankie was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the oldest of three brothers. A leader from an early age, he enjoyed popularity among his many friends and he loved to play sports.  A very bright student, he attended Xaverian High School where he studied in their prestigious IB Honors Program with a goal toward attending Princeton University.

A lover of the political arena and a talented creative writer, Frankie was an avid novel reader and he enjoyed the fine works of great authors. The NY Yankees and NY Giants were his teams. He loved Robert Deniro films, online role-play and Friday night card games with his buddies. He enjoyed a good and fair political debate, and he was an extremely articulate speaker. Studying law and practicing as a public prosecutor was a very serious goal for him. He also had thoughts of entering into a political career in his later years. He was a tremendous advocate of civil rights and human dignity. His political views were moderate and his oft repeated words were “Depends on the issue!”

At the age of 14, Frankie was diagnosed with bone cancer and then leukemia,  he endured extremely invasive treatments, countless surgeries, and  constant procedures during a span of 27 months. Through it all, Frankie demonstrated an unmatched courage and an indomitable and prayerful spirit.  As an older pediatric patient, he greatly understood the enormity of what it meant to be so young and fighting for life instead of enjoying life. It is in this spirit and in Frankie’s memory that his foundation carries out its important mission. So important was this mission to Frankie, that they were among the last words he communicated to his family and friends.

Now, in his name and memory, we will raise funds and awareness to help families and children who are fighting the same illness. Join us and help to make a real and true difference!


Receiving this Awards for Staten Island Top Women in Business is truly an honor!AWARDS FOR STATEN ISLAND TOP WOMEN IN BUSINESS

Leah MacDonald | Art & Inspiration Workshop

October 17, 2014 /

Leah MacDonald | Art & Inspiration Workshop

As an artist, I often feel pulled and pushed in new directions.  It’s an exciting roller coaster to make something and put a piece of you into your art.  It’s scary too.

Every year, I hope to attend one workshop. Sometimes two.  I want to push myself and take my work to the next level.  

I was introduced to encaustics through Jennifer Hudson’s 2011 workshop with one of my best friends Peggy. It was an incredible experience, but difficult beyond belief to create a piece.  I deeply admire my friend Peggy’s work and when she introduced me to Leah MacDonald, I was excited to hear that she taught an art workshop with wax, paint and encaustics not far from my hometown.

Leah is a multi-talented artist, photographer, mother of 2 who makes these incredibly beautiful albums, which should be called treasures instead of albums.  I can’t describe them with words, as they contain photos, memories, notes, poems and so much more than you could imagine.  They’re so unique.  Check out her site:


Leah MacDonald was such a kind and thoughtful teacher. She was so welcoming opening her home and studio up to Peggy and I this week customizing everything, ensuring we were at home, feeding us and answering our 15,000 questions.  Her energy and positivity was infectious.

She introduced us to the process, the tools and options.  She taught us how to look at a piece and work with it until we love it.  This is an ancient media, but she helped us understand the possibilities and gave us confidence to dive right in and make something beautiful.

During our workshop we learned to make art with wax, oil paints and pigments and encaustics too. We used pottery tools, mounted our prints and created art from scratch.

It was very scary at first.

But Leah guided us and answered our every question and suddenly we were creating on our own.  Well, with help initially.  Hehe

It was so exciting.  My portrait was transformed into a piece of art that I was so proud of.  This is one of my favorite pieces.  Its 16×20 mounted on wood.

Natalie Licini, Leah MacDonald Workshop

It was such an incredibly inspiring two days with Leah MacDonald.  I learned so much and can not wait to make art pieces for myself and for our clients at Je Revele.  I’m ordering supplies and can not wait to try this again next week in my studio.

Thank you Leah for opening up your heart and your home and sharing so much with Peggy and I.

NJ Boudoir Photographer | Art with Natalie Licini

August 18, 2014 /

NJ Boudoir Photographer | Art with Natalie Licini

Earlier this year, talking with one of my very best friends, we planned a girls trip at her new home in the mountains north of Seattle, Washington.   As an artist, I  look to do things differently and see and capture the world differently.  Planning this trip to Seattle, I hoped to be inspired to create new art.  I was overwhelmed with the beauty and lasting memories of my trip last week.  I wanted to share some of the beautiful portraits we made and a report of the time I spend with my dear friend Corinne Alavekios, known as one of the best Woodinville Senior Photographers.

I’ve been photographing for ten years and as a NJ Boudoir Photographer and I absolutely love making art pieces for our clients.  This trip has really fueled my creativity.

Monday: arrived in Seattle at 9:30am

What a warm and beautiful day. Seattle was breathtakingly beautiful. We drove to Corinne’s Woodinville studio.

{iPhone photo above}

What a charming town! It resembles Lake Garda, Italy with a roundabout in the town center surrounded by cypress trees.  I felt like I was truly in Italy. The town is picturesque.

We had an incredible lunch and relaxing first day catching up as photographers do. Life, family, business. Sharing stories about our wonderful clients and work ahead of us.

There were some unforgettable moments during this time.  My very first moment occurred pulling up to Corinne’s home in the mountains.  It completely took my breath away that I yelled

“Stop!  Slow down!”

I was in awe taking it all in and needed to loop around and come back in one more time. The mountains and golden fields made me gasp in wonder.

We dined in and drank cappuccinos laughing till late that evening listening to the best music station on her TV.  We started to plan a few inspirational shoots which suddenly included one of me – ahhh!

We discovered our mutual love of Tracey Chapman “Fast Car”.  Which eventually became the song of the trip.

Only my husband knows, I have a  love for hay bales from my travels through Tuscany. Just under a mile from her home in the distance were a field of hay bales. I nearly leaped out of the car to hug them I was so excited.  My love of hay bales sparked Corinne’s interest in planning a shoot with me in the hay bale fields later in the week. I was so excited.


We had a relaxing morning talking about art and things which inspire us.  We invited two beautiful students who were friends to come and model for us. One, a high school senior and another just days away from leaving for college.

We had lunch at a beautiful resort. One of the best chopped salads I’ve ever had.  Not to mention the spectacular views.  Here’s a quick iPhone photo Stevn took of us.

Just before our shoot we visited Corinne’s magnificent Rosyln studio with the famous blue couch. It was such a gorgeous spacious studio.  We selected gowns and dresses for our shoot later that day.  As a NJ boudoir photographer, this change of pace photographing seniors was SO much fun!  Her town of Roslyn was the setting for the TV show Northern Exposure.  It was so cool!

That afternoon we met the girls and drove with them to the mountains and river.  These gorgeous blondes were absolutely lovely and kind.  Driving over, we stopped to admire the beautiful lake in front of us.  Here’s an iPhone photo of the girls.

Somehow, Tracey Chapman came on the radio and Clare announced her love of Tracey too.  We listened and sang along badly to Fast Car as we drove to our spot.    This was my second unforgettable moment.

I’ve seen Corinne’s gorgeous river photos but never realized just how rainy it was.  Boy did I find out.  As a New Yorker, I typically photograph my clients in cute dresses and shoes. This shoot was in the mountains, forest and river rapids. Sneakers and hiking gear were crucial. Ow my!

As soon as we parked the sky’s opened up and it started to pour. The rain was intense and I turned to Corinne disappointed that we couldn’t shoot and she said “are you ready?” As in to shoot in the rain.

I was in disbelief that she would shoot in the pouring rain.  At first I photographed from the car with the window down. Yes! I’m a wimp. As the rain subsided a bit we all walked deep into the mountains in search of the river. Just as we found it the rain and thunder started in. Lightning too! Its soooo hard to compose and direct in the pouring rain. Never mind our poor senior girls who never modeled a day in their life. They were hysterical laughing whiping water off their brow. The cameras were getting soaked and so were we so we dashed back to the car and headed home. We were wet ringing out our hair, pools of water drenched the inside of Corinne’s SUV. I’ve never been this soaked in my entire life.

Omg it was crazy fun though.

Except for the scary lightning I could do this again.  This was my third unforgettable experience. 

With the recent forest fires and flash floods we headed home. Although, I had way too much fun and my creativity was off the charts. The rain halted my creativity and I was soooo bummed our shooting came to an end. But luckily the girls said they could return Thursday to continue our shoot. Yay!

Here are a few of my favorites with Alise & Clare in the rain.

We spend Tuesday evening relaxing with a glass of wine in hand, I started to fall in love with the mountains of Seattle and Corinne’s adorable puppy Brinkley.  He was the sweetest, most loving golden I’ve ever seen.  I think about him everyday and miss him.  Here are a few iPhone photos of the night.

NJ Boudoir Photographer, Je Revele

Waking up to Corinne & Stevn’s delicious cappuccinos was such a treat.  We worked on business and marketing a little bit.  Then we went to photograph my new headshot at Corinne’s Roslyn studio.

I tried not to micromanage the shoot. I failed miserably.

Hahahha hut the pictures turned out awesome. Yay!!! My first new headshot in years.  There are a few variations, and this is one of my favorites.  Thank you Corinne for spoiling me.

On the way home we picked up ingredients to make salmon for dinner.  I thought I’d make everyone New York style guacamole to start. Stevn and Corinne loved it so much they used it as a garnish for the salmon. I was thrilled they did. Stevn was really over the moon and I was too so I asked if he liked any special desserts … Maybe a cheesecake?  He happened to love cheesecake so I offered to make my famous cheesecake. I never saw someone leave a house so fast to go grocery shopping. When he returned I made it. As you all know, cheesecakes need to sit overnight so naturally stevn had a piece for BREAKFAST on Thursday. LOL! Here are a few iPhone photos of the evening.

We started the day off with cheesecake for breakfast and an early photo shoot in Corinne’s front yard with Alise & Clare. It was such a fun morning. We photographed through lunch time, laughing and laughing. The girls seemed to have just as much fun running thought the golden fields.  Here are some of my favorite portraits of these beautiful friends.

Just as we finished up Corinne instructed me to curl my hair as she prepared lunch.  She wanted to photograph me by the hay bales. The hay bales were just under a mile straight down from her home nearly in eyes distance. We needed gear and ladders so Corinne’s suggested we drive over on her tractor.  As a New Yorker, I didn’t know what to expect.  This was my fourth unforgettable moment. 

Omg I had no idea what I was getting into. I was in tears laughing so hard as she towed me, the cameras, fabric, and two ladders to this field. Mind you the tractor was going about 3 miles per hour. Which reminded me of a scene with Mr. Bean’s Holiday where he stole a moped HERE.  It was a hilarious bumpy ride. I couldn’t contain the laughter. We got stuck at one point on uneven ground and had to pull the tractor out of a ditch. I couldn’t believe we actually got it out.  What a fun experience.

Here’s a quick iPhone photo of this hysterical tractor.

And of course… just as we pulled up to our spot the rain starts in. Oye!!! Luckily Corinne’s vision was executed effortlessly and we were heading back home in no time.

After we arrived home we excitedly downloaded our photos and started editing a few favorites. What fun!!! Today felt like 3 days in one. It was so exciting and unforgettably funny. It was hard to go to sleep recounting all the stories from our week together. Some which we can’t remember or cant share just yet. Hehehehe

Friday: flight home was quick but saying goodbye was hard! I already miss my best friend. Its rare at this age to meet a special friend, who you love and respect and trust.  Corinne has been so good to me these 3 years. I feel so blessed for her support and friendship.   She’s already planning a trip to NYC to visit me next.  This was my last iPhone photo taken as I left the mountains.  Such a beautiful and serene place.
