bathtub boudoir

January 26, 2015

My boudoir studio has this beautiful tub that I am in love with. Every chance I get, I am luring women into my bathtub. Lol

I shot this when I did my new boudoir video and if you have seen it, you will know what I’m talking about. Brooke in the bathtub is some of my favorite footage in the video and this photo has got to be my one of my all time favorites shots. I only have one regret….

Those damn panties! I should have made her take them off! Right?

This photo was my inspiration. I pretty excited about my interpretation… 

If you happen have a thing for sexy bathtubs and bubbles, I say it’s a sign… It’s time to book a session and get your bathtub boudoir on!

Bass Ass Boudoir

January 24, 2015

Not often does a client bring her own bad ass boudoir props, but this little blue eyed beauty came with her own fancy weapon. When she broke out this darling blue hand gun, I have to say, I got a little excited. I’m not a big gun person, I’ve never owned one, and I never really wanted to, until I laid my eyes on this little sexy pistol.

This was a gift from her husband and he had nooooo idea that she even knew about this gun that he bought her, because she’s a sneaky one. Nor did he have any idea that she was taking these photos for his big 40th birthday present. So you can imagine the surprise when he opened his gift. We took some amazing photos that I would so love to share with you, but certain things shall remain private, so here it is, the one and only you get to see. I think you could call this some bad ass boudoir?

I’m calling all Bad Ass Girls out there?? Can you top this? I’m game! If anyone has some bad ass boudoir ideas for me, feel free to share!

Have a great weekend

Raising the Bar with Boudoir

January 19, 2015

My new Boudoir video is here!!  This is so exciting!  I’ve been working on this for the last three months, but this idea has been brewing for years now, so I’m thrilled I was finally able to make it happen.  I think it’s the best boudoir video I’ve seen, although I could be biased.

Since I started my boudoir business 5 years ago, my goal has always been to raise the bar, and with this video, I believe I have done so!  Every day, every week, every year, I am raising the bar for myself and my boudoir business.  If you frequent my blog and you know a little about me, you might know I actually really dislike the word “boudoir.”  I just think it’s a little cheesey.  When you google the word “boudoir,” some very questionable photos pop up.  There are some photographers out there posing and lighting women in ways that make me cringe.  I’ve created my own term that I prefer to use which is “editorial intimates.”  It just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?  Sigh… Until my new term takes off, I reluctantly have to continue to raise the bar with boudoir.

My goal is to take the viewer into my world, my studio and behind my lens, so you can see how important it is to me not just to create pretty photos, but to tell a story and make a connection.  I want the viewer to be as taken away as I am when I’m behind the camera.  Women are beautiful, mysterious and fascinating creatures.  The passion in what I do lies in creating portraits that are unique, timeless, and make my clients feel the sexiest they have ever felt.  I don’t just create photos, I create art.

Any woman that watches this will believe that I can tell her story.

I’d love to hear what you think!  Am I raising the bar with boudoir?

Photo LA

January 16, 2015

The international photographic art exposition photo la returns for its 24th year at The REEF, located in the historic LA Mart building in downtown Los Angeles, January 15 – 18, 2015.  Downtown LA has become an international destination for art patrons and enthusiasts.  In addition to photo la and the LA Art Show, downtown LA will also welcome the highly anticipated opening of the new Broad Museum in 2015, along with the arrival of new cutting-edge and blue-chip galleries, such as Hauser Wirth & Schimmel.  Inspired by the vitality of downtown’s growing creative energy, photo la relocated to The REEF for its 2014 edition, attracting an unprecedented attendance of 16,000 guests.

The 2015 edition of photo la will feature a diverse, sweeping showcase of art ranging from 19th Century works to contemporary and innovative photography.  Amongst galleries, dealers, museums, and nonprofit organizations, photo la will expand its acclaimed programming to include more lectures, roundtable discussions, special installations, and docent tours.  This is the first year I will be featured at photo la, which is super exciting and fills me with pride!  One of my main goals is to have my own fine art photography show in 2015, so this is a brilliant start. 

Last month, we shot the sexy photo below of beautiful model Jaclyn Swedberg, Playboy’s Playmate of the Year in 2012.  It was like shooting tequila.  A warm fuzzy feeling rushed through my body luring my system into action.  She’d open those big eyes, pucker her tempting lips and there it was- sex, sex, and more sex!  She was virtually making love to me through my lens.  It was fascinating and I was in heaven.  I’ve worked with many lovely women, including models and actresses, but I have never experienced anything like this!  This is the first and only shot you will see from this shoot for a while, as I don’t yet know what will be published.  So feast your eyes on this beauty and please come visit me at photo la, where she and I will be exhibited for the first time.

I’ll be there all day tomorrow, and I’d love to meet you, so send me an email info@boudoirlosangles.com to let me know your walking around and you’d like to say howdy.

Taylour

January 14, 2015

 I first shot Taylour Paige when she was still in college. She is now the lead in the hit VH1 show, Hit The Floor. When I first met Taylour a few years ago, I knew she had something special. She lights up the room with her big smile and from the moment you meet her you can’t help but love her. She is one of my all time favorite clients and I  just adore her. She embodies everything it is to be an ambitious young woman following her dreams and it’s so inspiring to see all of her hard work is paying off! It’s a reminder that everyday we just can’t wish for it, we have to work for it!  

Taylour is also in my new promotional video that I’ll be posting in the next couple days, so stay tuned! This talented beautiful girl is going to be BIG!
