Exploring new things and looks.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated. Life, as always, steps in whenever it wants without so much as a “If you please”. Also, as most of you know, a lot of my work in this area is “eyes only” to a special someone or for the client themselves. So, I offer my apologies for the lack of new images and offer up the following set for your viewing pleasure.
As you might have noticed, the look of this page has changed. I’m exploring new layouts. Looks that are more befitting the work presented. I want the entire site to be more unified, more cohesive to the idea of sensuality. There will be more changes as I wade through the sea of page layouts to find the one I like the most.

A corset is one of the most fabulous, versatile things that enhances every body type.
What is old is new again. I absolutely love it when a client pulls out one or more beautiful corsets for their sessions. Let’s talk about why you should have at least one yourself.
Obviously, they are designed to make the wearer look great. They enhance the hourglass shape by making your waist look slimmer and tummy appear flatter. The overbust ones enhance the bustline. They are popularly used to get a body back to it’s pre-pregnancy shape. At the very least wear the corset to just feel sexy and glamorous.

There’s always a first time for everyone. Even a seasoned pro.
This is one of those entries where I’m going to let the person in the photos do most of the talking. I just want to take a moment to thank everyone that has supported me on this journey. I truly love creating remarkable memories with amazing people. I am a better person because of each of you.
Now I’m turning this over to Tershia.

I won’t have a blog update tomorrow.
I have to drop my sister off at the airport at 430 am – yes, that’s right – 430 am. I then have an appointment in Newport News at 8 that will take a good 3 hours. Following that I come home and start prepping for the first boudoir session of 3 set for the weekend. Needless to say I won’t have time to post.
Stay tuned for updates when I can post them including a new bdsm based session. I promise, you wont be disappointed.

I need more people like Mrs. R to be ambassadors for others.
The biggest misconception, I find, about doing a boudoir session is that you must be 18, flawless, and size -2 to look good doing it. I’m here to say that is totally wrong. In my opinion, the only thing someone needs is an open mind backed by a strong photographer.
I know the concerns, I feel them deeply and emphasize with them. I really do. “I need to lose weight”, “I’m too old”, “I have stretch marks”, “I don’t look like the women you have on your site”, “I’m not special, I don’t deserve it”, et cetera.
That voice inside your head trumps anything anyone can say. I totally get it. There is no amount of words or phrasings that I can generate that will overcome some people’s fears and doubts.
Which is way I’m posting this call to action today. I need you. I need women of all ages, shapes, sizes, races, those that are pregnant, those with handicaps, survivors of illness, et cetera, to step forward and show the rest that they can do it. I need you to be a vanguard for others. Lead the way.

Announcing Celebration Sessions.
Miss T., a veteran of this site, was recently in town visiting family for the holidays. Time is always tight during such things so it was an honor when she reached out to me to do a session during her short stay.
As always, whenever we get together, I have all I can do to hold on and keep up as she is just a force of nature in front of the camera. She becomes this magical thing, I just try to document it as best I can.
During the session we chatted about a variety of things. I mentioned a concept that had been brewing in my head for a bit – Boudoir Celebration Sessions. She really took to the idea and gave me some invaluable insights.
