Art Heffron and his ALL HER OWN Project is going on tour! I’ll be offering road support for musician Gregory Alan Isakov & The Shook Twins Pacific Northwest & West Coast Tour from February 14-28, stopping in every major city from Seattle to San Diego using my background as an implied, artistic nude, erotic and a live music photographer, concert promoter and tour manager, and I’m scheduling ALL HER OWN shoots along the way.
I rarely update MM, so join me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/allherown or on FB at www.facebook.com/artheffronphotography
I'm looking for laid back open models who are super confident but also down to earth enough that they are aware that we’re gliding through this lovely ride together, that simply want to get creative and are comfortable being photographed in their own home, tidy or not. The idea is simply nothing but you in your own home/skin/person, surrounded by the things that fully express who you are.
If in-home is not an option, I am very open to outdoor, hotel, studio or friends lofts and condos. Since I am just passing I won’t have access to my usual Colorado & NYC studios.
General Session Rates $175/hr. Very happy to talk trade based on your experience.

Mainly, I'm looking for fun people that inspire and help everyone involved grow and self reflect through the process.
Here’s more about the intent and vision behind ALL HER OWN:
ALL HER OWN is an alternative implied/nude & erotic photography project committed to two things. The first is using natural light and never retouching with photoshop, representing women’s bodies in the best light possbile accenting everyones true and 100% natural beauty. The second is all shoots are in your home, building each shoot around who each woman is, and the things in her life that make her feel sexy, open and empowered - it’s never about conforming to anyone else’s constructs of what is beautiful...it’s all about you!
ALL HER OWN sessions are inspired by who you are, what you do, things you like, your vices and obsessions, without being staged or overly thought out. My goal is to feature women of all shapes and sizes (many that have traditionally been left out of mainstream media). I want to play my part in helping redefine a genre that has been overrun with unrealistic sexually explicit images of women, that have for so long focused more on expressing who men want women to be, and less about who they truly are. All Her Own Sessions give each woman a way to express her personality, sexuality & creativity in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by the things that naturally make her who she is.
All Her Own sessions always take place in your home surrounded by the things that express who you are...this is you in your comfort zone, wearing what makes you feel sexy, great & confident...for some that may mean a fully nude and erotic shoot expressing your sexuallity in that way, for others it may mean flannels, your grandmas hand me down nighty, your fave lingerie, or that old t-shirt you just can't get rid of...Implied, Nude or both...you make the call
ALL HER OWN shoots are for everyone...you can be a kindergarten teacher or a model, a yogini or a CEO, a ballet dancer or a musician, a porn star or a church secretary, an actress or a blogger, a bartender or an urban gardener, a lawyer or a bud tender.
Take away the premeditated props and backdrops. Break down the overly designed and seductively-themed sets. Remove the socially-driven images of runway model beauty from your mind. Be REAL. Be natural. We want flannels or fifteen year old t-shirts. Red lipstick or nothing at all. Flowers in your hair. Heels, flats, flip flops or slippers on your feet...smoke a cigar or a joint, paint your tummy and sip some whiskey or champagne!
This is you in-home surrounded by the things that express who you are...this is you in your comfort zone, wearing what makes you feel sexy, great, confident and at your best.
My very first boudoir client said something before the shoot that inspired me to go beyond mainline boudoir into a more real, more personalized, intimately “you” All Her Own session. She said, "WARNING: objects in mirror may be distorted by socially constructed ideas of beauty." We then went on to kick off my All Her Own project with one hell of an inspiring shoot for both her and me.
My most recent All Her Own client shared her powerful story and journey of modeling that she hopes every women in the world hears…
“They weighed me before I was allowed to get in front of the camera and said it was a normal procedure for modeling agencies. They said I had "potential", but needed to lose 15 pounds and get a nose job. I was already struggling with confidence from growing up in ballet, constantly surrounded by those who always seemed to have the perfect physique. I was just a little girl who wanted to be good enough for someone, and had an eating disorder for five years because of it. It was a long time before I realized how truly beautiful I was, even though I never felt that way. There is this "ideal body type" women try to obtain, and it sucks because it's not always obtainable; we are born with certain things we can not change. I started modeling again after I recovered, with hopes that I could make a difference in the industry.
This photo was taken by a project I adore, called "ALL HER OWN". Real women, of all shapes and sizes, surrounded by what makes them unique. There is NO digital retouching in this picture. Just me, sitting on the floor of my apartment. It's not glamorous, and it doesn't need to be. This is the real me.”
Don't let anyone ever make you feel like you need to change a damn thing. "You are altogether beautiful, my darling. There is no flaw in you." Divinity Ray
As I continue All Her Own: I want my clients to be reminded not to lose themselves & their own identity, or try to be someone they’re not. Rather, you can look forward to images that are authentic, expressive, sensual, erotic and truly focused on your true beauty...meet where you are at , completely in your own.
I hope to create together soon!
