The Lovely Ariana Lamour

August 26, 2014

Ariana performed last night on stage with Taylour Swift at the video music awards, so of course I was inspired to feature her on my blog today! I could have posted a 100 photos of her. Every photo I shot with Ariana Lamour was so lovely and  I could have spent all day putting together a stunning blog post, but chop chop, I have 100 photos to retouch before tomorrow morning! Bring on the coffee! It’s going to be a long night.

classic bedroom boudoir

August 21, 2014

I don’t know if I could ever get sick of my new bedroom boudoir set. I find new things to do with each shoot and I just dance around there like a little girl with a new set of skates.

As sexy music plays around the whole studio, and we sip champagne and giggle about what we are going to do next, I revel in every moment! It’s a dream come true and I can’t think of anything else I would want to do more!

Honestly what can be better than playing dress up, feeling fabulous, looking fabulous and having an experience that you’ll never forget! I get to capture the essence of women and ultimatly give them the most beautiful photo they will ever have of themselves! I’m in heaven!

Book your next boudoir shoot with Boudoir Los Angeles today and experience yourself on a whole new level!

100mm for boudoir photography

August 15, 2014

Why the 100mm is one of the Lenses for Boudoir Photography 

Listen up ladies and gentleman, I know how much you love your “nifty fifty” (Or if you have a ƒ1.8, your “thrifty fifty”) but there’s a new contender in town for best Boudoir lens, and it’s…

The 100mm.

I cannot possible describe how much I absolutely adore this lens, but I’m sure as hell going to try, because if you aren’t using it, you’re missing out.

Obviously, being a creative Boudoir photographer doesn’t hinge on having this or that piece of equipment. There’s no such thing as the “right gear” for the job, but there are tools which are superior to others, and your choice of lens is absolutely one of them.

Why the 100mm is the Best Boudoir Lens 

Your Boudoir clients are a tableau of beautiful details – the curve of her spine, the length of her neck, the light in her eyes. You want to capture these elements in all of their fabulousness, but sometimes you just can’t do that with a short focal length.

So why not just use a zoom lens?

Prime lenses make your shots deliberate, intentional. They force you to frame your subject in such away that flatters them. Although telefoto lenses allow for some freedom of movement, I find that when I use them it’s easier to be lazy and not set up my shots as well as if I used a prime.

Having that said, the reason why I love the 100mm, rather than the 85mm (also a great lens) or the 50mm or something else, is because it’s a macro lens – it focuses on the important parts of your frame while deemphasizing the less important stuff. You have better control of background, access to angelic light, and more of that much-envied softness which will always flatter your subjects.

Don’t believe me? Check out these shots I took with the lens. You can also try it yourself, and be amazed by the results.

Vinessa Shaw

August 13, 2014

Vinessa Shaw is one of the funniest human beings I have ever met! I loved every moment with her and I feel pretty damn lucky I got to meet her and work with her. She is known for roles like, Eyes Wide Shut, Yuma, and The Hills Have Eyes just to name a few! She is definitely one of the sexiest women I have ever photographed.

I’ve had the privilege of working with quite a few celebrities and I must admit there is something magical that happen when they get in front of the camera. Call it star power, charm, or whatever you want, they have a presence about them that fires me up! A lure that cannot be denied and I can see it, I can feel it, and I get to capture it. Vinessa Shaw is truly unique and I’ll never forget how fun it was just to be pull of her charisma.
