Slippery When Wet

I came up with a temporary shower set as the bathroom in my studio is much too small to shoot in and the results were nothing short of spectacular.

This was a limited edition set due to the small space afforded by studio; I cannot leave it up all the time.  BUT...that doesn't mean I won't be bringing it back.  If you want in on these sessions, get on my mailing list now!

How to Feel Sexy When You Just Don't

Women come to me usually for two reasons:  either they feel really beautiful and sexy and want me to capture that for them, or they don’t feel sexy at all and need that confident boost.  Of course there are other reasons women get boudoir done, but those are the top two.  You may be the in the latter camp. 

Although I do find that a boudoir session carries lasting results for clients including a sense of newfound confidence and a reassurance that they are indeed beautiful, sometimes we just have those days when we feel about as sexy as a pissing toad.

I mean, Mama June went and got herself a beach body and I’m still over here eating cookies for breakfast.  That’s ok.  My boobs match my butt.  I put my big girl panties on, which may or may not include a leopard print, look in the mirror, and pull my confidence secrets out of my hat.  Let me share a few:

Whether I’m wearing make-up or not, I fill in my brows. It’s the first step to looking more put-together, and well, younger.  Most of us want to look as young as possible.  Plus, it frames my face.  A microblading appointment with Lauren Haley is definitely next up on the beauty list.

Next, I might throw on an off-the-shoulder or cold-shoulder top to show off my neckline.   It’s super feminine, and if I’m feeling really extra, I’ll put some highlighter along my collarbone.

Sometimes all we need is lipstick and mascara.  Of course, I’m partial to Limelight by Alcone’s Perfect Lipstick which is super pigmented, but no so matte that it makes my lips feel dry, and my lash-lengthening Perfect Mascara that has fibers already in the formula, but no matter which brand you use, there’s just something about lipstick and mascara that serves as a quick mood booster.  Give me lashes.  Give me lips.  Give me the world.

Do something outside your comfort zone.  When we’re feeling too comfortable, we develop limitations.  We suddenly convince ourselves that there are certain things we can’t do.  Getting a little uncomfortable helps you reinforce positive attributes about yourself.  Doing a boudoir session is one way to get out of your comfort zone, but it could be as something as simple trying a new machine at the gym. 

Gym…did someone say exercise?  Yep.  I do it at least four times a week.  It’s a mood booster that gets the endorphins going, and keeps the doctor at bay.

Then, after you’ve done your session with me, get comfortable accepting compliments and accolades.  See below. 

 
 

Are You Ready to Make Your Confidence Soar?  

The Craziest Items Clients Have Ever Brought to a Session

I work in a small space so I don’t have the benefit of using lots of different sets.  One of the ways I keep things interesting is to have clients bring in one personal item.  (Get your mind out of the gutter!)

I love it because it keeps me on my toes creatively.  Over the years, I’ve had some clients bring in some very interesting items.  Hopefully, these examples give you some ideas of what to bring your own session with me.

A Fishing Pole:  A lot of times clients will bring in something that relates to a spouse’s hobby or interest.   This particular session was going to be shot indoors using a bedroom set in a traditional boudoir style.  If this had been retro pin up, it would have made the perfect prop.  I had to find a way to incorporate this into her session without looking cheesy, so I had her sit on the edge of the bed and hold the fishing pole in front of her with her knees together. This turned out to be one of my favorite images from the whole session.

A Life Jacket:  Life Jackets are big and bulky and flatter NO ONE, but I figured out a way to make her cleavage and legs look sexy in spite of it!

A Bottle of Lube: aptly named F*CK Water.  Since I didn’t need to demo the product in use, this one was pretty easy.

Compression Socks:  This sounds like the most unsexy of all unsexy items in the history of undergarments, but the client explained that her significant other found them to be very sexy on her.  They were bright pink and the resulting photo was nothing less than pure sexy legs!

A Fuzzy Pair of Ginormous Dragon Slippers.  Most clients like to bring heels that accentuate a pair of shapely legs, but this client’s significant other loves dragons, so we did a classic pin up pose where she lies on her back with her legs up in the air. 

 
 

Some of the coolest items clients have brought have been:

Sushi:  This client wanted to incorporate her Japanese heritage as well as her love of cooking so I had her lie on her side and I placed a few pieces on her thigh for an abstract shot of her hips and thighs.

A Monogrammed Brandy Bottle with Matching Glasses and a Silk Tie: This client’s anniversary was coming up and sharing a glass of brandy is something that they like to do together, so she brought their monogrammed brandy bottle with their initials on the bottle.  We put the silk tie around her neck and filled one of the glasses half-full (Yes, I’m an optimist!) with brandy. 

A 45lb weight:  This client wanted to showcase her love of fitness.  The resulting photos are still some of my absolute favorites from her session.

A Chanel handbag and a pair of Louboutins:  This totally appeals to my love of fashion.   Besides, if you’re going to buy luxury items, why not commemorate them in a photo session?  It’s a great excuse to splurge!

Her Bridal Bouquet & Veil:  These are perfect for a bride with an upcomimg wedding and a nice surprise for the groom!

A Record Player & an Al Green Album:  This was a favorite combo that represented the couple’s sexy time together.
