femme fatale

November 19, 2014

“She’s mad but she’s magic, there’s no lie in her fire.” – Charles Bukowski

Over the weekend I shot my new promotion video for my Boudoir business. I had two videographers, four stunning models, two amazing make-up artists. From 7am to 5 pm I worked my little butt off and It could not have gone better. I was so happy when it was all over that I actually cried tears of joy. I am feeling ever so blessed right now and things just keep getting better and better. All those countless hours of visualization are finally paying off.

Natasha my dear friend, mother of two and one of the most beautiful human beings I’ve ever met came to be one of my models. She is fiery and powerful, a true femme fatale.

I’ve always loved the archetype of femme fatale. A femme fatale is a lover of literature, art, and all things mystical. Her beauty, charm, and sexual allure allow her to navigate the world in such a way that no man could dim her light, control her dreams or conquer her world. She is the one in charge of writing her tale, the master of her own fate.

Throughout history, it’s the strong women who have stood out from the crowd, wowing everyone with their effortless grace, incredible mind, and remarkable sense of style. The true femme fatales of the world are few and far between, but when one walks in the door, you can’t help but notice. Their very existence demands attention, they won’t be ignored. When doors are closed, they find ways to open them. They raise families and run businesses and look stunning in the process.

This weekend was a whirlwind for me, but it ultimately reinforced my belief in what I’m doing. I want to showcase strong and capable woman as something to be admired. I want to photograph the femme fatales and prove just how incredible they are. Women shouldn’t have to hide behind men. We are full of strength and passion and we have every right to show that off.

If you’ve got it, you sure as hell ought to flaunt it, and never let anyone steal that fire from you.
