A unique treat

September 12, 2014

boudoir and tattoos.I’ve been so excited to blog this! I’ve been waiting months to deliver these stunning Boudoir images to this extraordinary fancy fox. Once she had her art in hands, she gave me the thumbs up. I’m overjoyed.

I always feel so blessed when I get to show my work off! Lately I have been getting some badass clients and I am so excited that my photos are attracting women I love working with. It just keeps getting better and better.

Suzanne is an incredible woman with such fire burning inside her, and she possesses an authenticity that is unshakable and a beauty that is formidable. Yet still she retains a softness and femininity that shines just as bright as her tough sexy shell. She is a force of nature and I adore her.

Working with amazing women who inspire me is really the definition of success for me.  I’ve struggled in my career with not knowing what direction to go for a long time. It’s been 10 years since I’ve graduated from art school and finally it really feels right. The funny thing is, I knew it all along and for whatever reason, I took a really long detour. It’s all good though, lots of valuable lessons along the way. I’ve determinately arrived at where I belong and I’m undoubtably going for the top.

The Goal for me is to be the best and biggest boudoir studio in Los Angeles. That’s right, I said it, the best. Why not, right! The bigger the goal, the better the outcome. If I shoot for the moon and don’t make it at least I’ll be dancing with the stars. The stars are truly a beautiful place to be.

I’m so grateful for where I am today, and so excited for what’s coming up on the horizon.

the art of posing

The Art Of Posing 

There is an art to posing in portrait and boudoir photography.  If you have spent time researching the ‘net checking out other boudoir photographers, I’m sure you’re pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down.

I see other photographers making some pretty bad calls when sticking nervous half-naked women in front of the camera.  But at Boudoir Los Angeles, you can have utter trust and assurance that I will make you look amazing, because I have spent the last 15+ years perfecting my skills in the art of posing clients in front of the camera. I am not perfect, but I won’t settle for less than perfection for you beauties.  I’m always eager to learn a new trick or position of the body that will capture the breathtaking sensuality of my stunning clients!  The more you practice, the better you get at anything.  At this point in my career, I’m extremely confident that I can walk into any room with any woman, with any body type, and I can pose her to make her body look the absolute most gorgeous it can be.

With posing, lighting, and retouching, I can produce the most beautiful photo you have ever seen of yourself, (and those couple of extra pounds you were worried about will never be an issue)!

I’ve been a retouching maniac the past few weeks. Lots of caffeine and late nights have resulted in some really beautiful photos. This is just a small portion of a Boudoir Posing Guide that I will be releasing with my Boudoir Ebook. Still not sure when that will be released, but I promise you will be the first to know!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today Boudoir is….

Boudoir State of Mind: Pathways to a More Confident You

Confidence is fetching, alluring. When a confident woman walks into a room, everybody looks. Confident women get what they want, have the life they want, date the people they want. They shape their realities.

So why, if being confident is the key to unlocking your full potential, do so many woman hold on to their insecurities? Why do so many people continue to put themselves down?

 Boudoir and Confidence

Boudoir Photography, for me, is synonymous with empowerment. There are so many women out there today who don’t know how incredible they are, and part of the reason is because they’ve never seen themselves through the correct lens.

Each time a new client steps into my Boudoir studio, she will usually feel uncertain at first. I’m not talking about professional models here, but real women who want to create something beautiful, something lasting for themselves or for their lovers. They come in a bit shy and reserved, and leave feeling confident and fully alive. This is because they’ve begun to see themselves as they truly are: worth it.

Self-confidence is tied into the belief that “Yes, I’m f***** worth it.” You attach a value to yourself that no one else can take away. You’ve lit a fire that no one else can snuff out. Dress up to please yourself.  Take a chance. Where something that says “here I am”

Sometimes it isn’t always easy to look at ourselves any differently than we always have. We’re subject to conditioning, to what our parents and friends and significant others have said, and we internalize that. If that’s the case, sometimes we just need to find a way to be able to look at ourselves differently. To appreciate ourselves differently.

Dress up to please yourself.  Take a chances. Where something that says “here I am”  and when your ready, book a fabulous fun photoshoot with Boudoir Los Angeles.
