I get it. You may reeeeaaaaallly want to try a boudoir photo shoot, for yourself or as a gift…but then, all the “what if” thoughts start. What if someone else sees? What if we break up? What if someone from work recognizes me? What if I’m just too shy? And depending on your life/career, these concerns can vary in strength. Don’t want so-and-so from marketing to be whispering about your sexy photos by the water cooler? I hear you.
Guess what? You can work around that! I’m showing some samples of sensual images that range in identity…you don’t even have to take anything off, or even show your face, if you don’t want to. It’s all about choice, and what you think will make you feel comfortable.
Let’s talk. You tell me your concerns/boundaries, and we’ll work around that.
So, I recently shot this image for wallpaper for the new Marisa Perry Atelier location…I’ve never done wallpaper before so that was challenging and stressful! The color didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted, but I’ve decided to (ok, fine, TRY to) stop nitpicking and be happy with the experience. This was just a crappy shot done on my phone…
And this is the one off my camera. They wanted a sexy pin-up look to show their rings on, and this model, Brittany, was wonderful…she’s a dancer and could hold that pose endlessly while we fussed.
Check out her instagram, lots of amazing shots there! https://instagram.com/bricavaco/ Makeup and hair was done by Leah Stangas, another fab lady to work with….and here’s a behind the scenes look!
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!
Ok, a few entries back, it was all about the cats! This time, here’s Bella the Boston Terrier wanting her close-up, thank you very much….
Not a fully edited shot since a different one was the winner for the client, but I was entertained by Bella, so here it is. What you don’t see is me lying on the floor, trying to shoot upwards with Bella licking my face 🙂
