Happy New Year, my friends.

2016 was great, 2017 will be even better.

Happy New Year, my friends. As I sit here reflecting on 2016, I realized it was actually amazing.

This was the busiest year I’ve had, photographically, in a long time. Between the portrait side, the boudoir side and the Women of Power project that I shot I have filled hard drives full of images. Last time I looked there were 50 folders of images generated in 2016.

A quick count shows that I worked with over 30 new people that I never worked with before. That’s amazing to me. I did my first ever couples boudoir session and my first transgender boudoir session. I can’t wait to do more. I developed new styles like Luminous, Light Side, Dark Side, Form, etc. I also started to publicize private and small group photo lessons.

2017 is shaping up to be even better. I’ve put out a Couples session promo and a Valentine’s Day boudoir promo. Check those out. I’ve recently purchases new props that are already being used and working out really well. I’m working on a new concept called Celebration Sessions which should roll out soon. I’m also working on a small studio space here for headshots, fitness, fashion, beauty, etc., when the weather isn’t co-operating.

I’m also heading back to school to finish a degree that I started way back in 2004 but had to stop due to financial reasons. This will open up a whole new world of new images as I work on school projects.

So, for those that helped me be as successful as I was in 2016 I humbly, deeply thank you. I couldn’t have done it without you. Now hold on to your hats for 2017.

Heads up, Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads.

I’m heading back tomorrow and primed to do more sensual sessions.

Today is my last full day in central NY. Three weeks flew by so fast.

I’m re-energized and inspired to try new ideas. I’ll be back tomorrow and ready to rock out more sensual, boudoir, nudoir, bridal, maternity, baby bonding, nude, form, erotic, bondage, couples, and bdsm, at my place, your place, a suite at a high end hotel, or out on location like downtown, a farm, and more.

I am proud and thrilled to announce the return of the popular sunRISE beach sessions for those looking for something a bit more edgy. No one is around at that time so we can get quite a bit more daring. It’s not for everyone but it is something special for those willing to take a chance.

Justice’s and Rylan’s bonding session.

Babies are popping up all over this place lately.

Last week I posted images from my recent maternity session with Mary Helen. During that same week I had the opportunity to work with another mom. Justice and I have been talking for a while about working together but, as she lives in another state, it’s just been talk. Until, that is, last week when she was in town for a few days.

Naturally we had to maximize our short time together as she was only in town for four days so we got in two photo sessions – one boudoir and one at the beach. I’ll be posting images from our beach session at http://www.photosbymarkk.com in a few days so keep an eye out for those.

Why should you do a boudoir session?

The answer to this question is as varied as the people that do them.
