Bottoms Up

February 26, 2015

Curtis and I have been playing around quite a bit with time lapse. It is so much fun. you should try it! It’s right there in your handy little smart phone. We made this silly little video in Rio at our favorite beach in Ipanema.

The first day on the beach, as I said in the previous post, was an eye opening experience. I was so inspired by all the beautiful butts around that I of course had to buy a Brazilian bikini right away. Shocking I know, I can’t believe I did not own a thong bikini, but now I own several. Guys walk around the beach all day long selling them, so it made it quite convenient.

I shoot beautiful bums all days long, but I never thought I would display my bum out there like this, shaking around in the ocean. Lol. There were girls everywhere though, in every size owning their but, so when in Rome?! Right!

 I am going to cherish this silly little video till the day I die!

What I more I say. Honestly, I just want want to be strong, beautiful, wild and free, just like the sea.

Beach Bums

February 26, 2015

I just got home from my 2 week Rio adventure. It was amazing! I went to the beach almost everyday, ate a scary amount of fried food, drank too much, danced, laughed, made love, and slept more than I have in months. It was just what little me needed after the last few crazy months I’ve had.

I’ve never seen so many gorgeous beach bums in my life! I was mesmerized, I couldn’t take my eyes off them. I’ve never seen anything like it. Small, medium, large, extra large, it didn’t matter, they were all out for display and they owned it in every which way!

The first day on the beach I was already planning out a coffee table book, coming up with names, oh man was it going to be a GEM,  but my dream was quickly squashed within the first 10 minutes I took my camera to the beach. Rio is a very dangerous place and I just can’t be strolling the streets, the beach, or really anywhere with anything expensive. My camera is worth 3 times the amount it is here, so it could have been ripped from me at any second. This was really hard for me to digest, as I take my camera everywhere with me. I’ve never felt in danger with my camera, but 10 minutes in Rio was enough for me to put it away and not take it out again.

This shot was within those 10 minutes. There were so many sexy beach bums everywhere you looked, strutting their stuff for everyone to see. It’s not like they are trying to keep anything a secret, so please… excuse me, I didn’t think anyone would give a damn. Once I have an idea, I want it, and I go for it. But after I get yelled at by a very strong, scary, tattooed guy on the beach, I take it as a sign. Sigh… Defeated, I put my camera away.

So here it is, better than nothing, right?!

We could learn a few things from these beautiful Brazilian people! One, being sexy is a state of mind. Two, whatever you got, fucking own it, love it and show it off. Three, shake it, shake it, and shake it a little more!

50 shades of grey flash sale

February 14, 2015

Happy Valentines day all you lovely people! As promised, here is my 50 shades of grey flash sale!

50 shades of grey flash sale_

I’m going to make this short and sweet because I’m in Rio and I should not be working, but here I am thinking of all you and how I can make your day a little sweeter.

The long anticipated 50 shades of grey comes out today and I could not think of a more perfect time to offer one of my boudoir flash sales to celebrate all things bold, sexy and daring.

This movie has taken America by storm and has caused so much controversy that it’s just going to make it an even bigger success. I am a firm believer of adventuring into the unknown and with each year on this planet I grow stronger and braver than I was the year before. I believe this is my truth because I am always doing things that scare me and that are considered to be taboo by most, but to hell what everyone else thinks! The older I get, the less I care what others think, and this brings me to the “why” of boudoir Los Angeles and why I love what I do so much!

It’s about being brave, bold and adventurous and if we are not doing things that make us grow we are not living! Period.

So Boudoir Los Angeles is celebrating a movie that is challenging beliefs and sparking curiosity with a 50 shades of grey flash boudoir sale!

Come in by yourself, with your partner, or with your friends and I promise you won’t regret it!

Boudoir Feature

February 13, 2015

Happy Friday!!! It’s my 4th day in brazil and it’s been pure heaven! We’ve been taking it easy, going to the beach daily, drinking lots of juice and gearing up for Carnival. The madness begins today, so  I believe my next post should be pretty colorful!

This beautiful barbie flew in from San Fran to come and shoot a boudoir session with me. She is a little fitness guru and as beautiful and fit as she was, she was super nervous. I think she even downed a whole bottle of champagne.

I don’t think she thought she would love her photos as much as she did, but she did, and I believe I even saw a tear of happiness when she saw them for the first time.

Beautiful Becky is my stunning boudoir feature for the week. Isn’t she lovely!!

Ooookay I’m off to the beach again! Have a great weekend everyone!  Also, I am thinking I might do a little boudoir promotion for valentines day tomorrow, so if you have been wanting to book a beauty or boudoir session with boudoir los Angeles, don’t forget to come back and check tomorrow, as It will probably be one of my hot 24 hour boudoir flash sales!

Luxe Boudoir

February 11, 2015

Hello From Brazil!!

I finally got a good night of sleep thank god. I think I only slept around 4 hours in 48, so when I knocked out last night I did not wake up till 12 today. I could not sleep on the plane so I just kept drinking wine hoping I would fall asleep, but I just got loopy and crazy. What a night!!  I feel like a brand spanking new person today! It’s a beautiful day, and after I post this, I’m off to the beach.

Beautiful Bri shot with me a few months ago and she had so much fun she came back again to have the   the ultimate boudoir experience and my luxe boudoir studio. If you don’t know yet, I have two fabulous boudoir studios, but when you step into my Gardena studio, you are in a whole new world. It’s magical studio and I feel so lucky to be there!!!

It really does not get more Luxe than this. You can even take a bubble bath or get a massage after your shoot. If you have not seen either of my boudoir studios yet check them out here.

She has not even seen the shots yet, so this is a special sneak peek!
