About the Author
Jessica Lark was always an artist in one medium or another, accepted to Moore College of Art and Design under a young artist's scholarship at 16 years old. Her flair for artistry culminated into a project to honor her best friend that passed away at 19 with a body painting series, which she painted herself and photographed. While she had always had a love for the nostalgia and immortality that photographs provided, she had never found her way to it from the artistic perspective until she used it to archive the imagery she created on the female form And the rest as they say, is herstory. She married young and began her photography career with no training or education in photography, business, or marketing. Her first sessions were done in her basement next to the oil tank on a backdrop made from a canvas drop cloth bought at home depot and hand painted by her and her sister. She shot on the little green square and charged $25 for the first session, $50 for the second, her first boudoir series, shot in her own bedroom as the set. In 2 and 1/2 years she took her operation from her basement and handmade backdrop sittings at $25 each to an $80,000 a year business, with high end weddings of more than $12000, and opened 2 boutique studio locations with a full staff, now offering her signature intimate portrait collections at $1500-3000. With no experience, training or education, a $2000 start up investment and a lot of determination she built her own little photography empire, while simultaneously juggling a toddler and newborn, no advertising budget, and in the middle of a failing economy.

Essentially if you're looking for a textbook or something more instructional than a discussion of moods, feelings, and such then get a different book. I was pretty disappointed and can't see this book being very useful other than to suggest potential clients read it. It's a book for people that want to be subjects and not photographers.

This intriguing work gets to the heart of any woman’s inner goddess. This comes from not only understanding your clients well, but also knowing yourself. Lark takes the time to put the reader through exercises designed to figure out your own personal sources of inspiration. What are you drawn to? That can help to define just how your ideal client will be drawn to you.
Beyond telling you how to pose a client, the book also goes into what not to do. For timeless art, author Lark helps you, the reader, get to your own passion. And in that way, you will get to your clients’ passions. It’s not about explicitness. It’s all about seduction.
To explore your clients’ motivations and learn what makes their self-images tick, this book is an invaluable resource, you’re going to love it!
