I wanted to capture the lovely Carmen Caliente in a more personal way, so we headed to her favorite studio to shoot her zen time, which is her dance time.
Meet Jaynie Jezebel from the After Midnight Cabaret burlesque troupe here in Seattle! Is that lingerie fabulous, or what?
Full set and downloads available on my Patreon page!
I love a good dress up session! Io looking amazing in burlesque style! I love the element of transformation during shoots…it’s really interesting to see how moods and attitudes can shift with something as simple as a wardrobe change.
If you’re in or traveling to Seattle, feel free to contact me here regarding booking a shoot!
This is one of my last shoots in apt 1003, and I can’t take credit for the concept. Theda came with the idea to do a Maltese Falcon/Sam Spade turned into a Fosse/burlesque type thing, so we took full advantage of the pre-war setting. This was after I had her doing strange gymnastics in the fireplace…
I am one sleepy girl this week…but vintage style always cheers me up. It’s fun to shoot…in the film days, I used to stain prints with tea and lightly burn the edges to get that look. Um, away from all the chemicals of course!
I find vintage style to be a great way for first time subjects to play around with the concept of sexy. It can range from just a hint of leg peeking out from a robe, to quite nude! Up to you how you want to do it!
I loves me some corsets. I don’t loves me wearing them for too long…I do love shooting them though. Makes for beautiful lines, and not to mention, posture. I’ve been fascinated with them since I was a kid. I remember seeing Meet Me in St. Louis on Broadway, and getting to go to the dressing room of one of the actresses. She was absolutely wonderful to me…I remember the dress she had to wear on stage…that thing weighed a ton! The corset she wore underneath was authentic to the time period of the play. Later in life after trying my first, I was thoroughly impressed that she could sing in that thing! Anyway, corsets do tend to pop up in my shoots pretty often, and I notice the models attitude shift into a slightly more badass mode ;). Don’t worry, never had a model pass out on me.
