Miss H’s sensual boudoir session in Virginia Beach.

She wanted something special to give to her husband for their wedding anniversary.

Miss H found herself in a quandary. Her wedding anniversary was coming up and she was struggling for idea on what to get her other half. Nothing was standing out as a clear winner. She wanted something personal, that would mean something, and that her husband would cherish.

Then she hit upon the idea of a boudoir session.

She was intrigued with the idea as it would check off a lot of boxes. It would be personal, from her heart, it would be cherished, and it would be a chance to show off her hard work at the gym.

New Dark Side images and a question.

 

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.

Susie submits to her sensual side again.

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.

Local fitness enthusiast/model Geraci J leaves me speechless after her boudoir session.

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.

The formula for a sucessful session is 5 percent looks and 95 percent attitude/spirit.

Christina was the make-up artist for another boudoir client. She liked what she saw so much she decided to have her own session.

Christina and I have known of each other for a bit. We were friends on Facebook as she is a make-up artist and local model but we never met face to face.

We started chatting more seriously when she was hired to do a client’s make-up for a boudoir session. We compared notes and shared ideas to make sure the client shined for her session. Needless to say that shoot went off without a hitch and the images were stunning thanks, in part, to Christina.

Our conversations shifted after that. She voiced a desire to have her own session which I was all for. She has a classic Hollywood look and she could pull off fun one moment and switch to smoldering immediately after that. I’ve always said that the formula for a successful session is 5% looks and 95% attitude/spirit. She has an abundance of both.

Just an FYI.

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.

This is a call to action to every woman who thinks they can’t do a boudoir session.

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.
