The dance between light and structure, tones and tension, goes on.
“I have…a terrible need…shall I say the word?…of religion. Then I go out at night and paint the stars.” – Vincent van Gogh.
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” Carl Sagan.
Those words are in the first book I’ve ever cherished – Sagan’s Cosmos. I’ve read that book several times and still have the original volume given to me as a birthday gift back in 1980. I was 12.
I identify with them when it comes to certain aspects of my personal photography – projects I do just for me. Things I look for when I have a need of religion. Fine art form, flowers, and a few other things. Images that are created for no other reason than to feed my soul.

The greatest work of art is the human body and I love honoring it.
When I started my photographic journey one of the genres I was attracted to was using the human body as a landscape. There was, and still is, this pull to explore all the peaks and valleys created by the intersection of a body and light. The creases and textures just pop.
The best thing is that, since every body is different, each body brings something different to the table. Each of use has a different build and different proportions to be sure. That alone makes each subject unique. A little more here, a little less there equates to endless variations. Add to that the fact that different areas of our bodies provide different textures.

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.

She wanted to get the most out of our time together.
When someone outside the area reaches out to me to do a session then I know I must be doing something right. Miss KJ is such a person. She lives almost two hours away from me so, during our chats, we decided to maximize our time together with a Super Session.

She embraces my concept of what boudoir is all about.
Susie is what I would consider perfect. She is strong, independent, confident, fearless, and gives zero thought to what you think of her. She embraces exactly who she is, mentally and physically, and relishes it. She is a dynamo of sensuality.
When we team up, everything is on the table. She owns the place without hesitation and dares me to keep up. I have a hard time doing so but I try my best. At the end of our sessions I am exhausted, mentally and physically, but I know I have pushed my boundaries past anything I’ve done before.
I am a better photographer and person because of her and people like her.

She proves that fit women are sensual women.
I make it well known that there is no “ideal” age or fitness level when it comes to doing a boudoir session. Everyone has the ability to create amazing images. All it takes is a little faith in the right photographer. I’ve made it my goal to show exactly that.
Geraci (https://www.instagram.com/juniper_geraci/) recently reached out to me about working together. She is a woman of a certain age. Don’t bother guessing, I promise you, you won’t get it. She’s also a fitness enthusiast who works hard to look like she does.

It’s good to be home.
I love being a photographer. It is, in all honesty, my life. If I’m to be even more honest, there are certain topics that I love shooting more than others. I love working with people more than, say take traditional landscapes. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good landscape. Working with people, however, reaches a deeper level of satisfaction.
For me, artistically, black and white form work is my personal acme. It is where I open up and do my best work.
Even the act of photographing it elevates my spirit to a higher plane. All the distractions and white noise of daily life fade away. My mind, which is usually a jumbled mess of a thousand things fighting for my attention at once, goes quiet. I am completely and totally in the present with my focus tuned into a patch of skin a few inches across but really represents it’s own landscape.
