What makes me unique when it comes to boudoir.

I’m breaking the Golden Rule of blogging by talking about myself for a moment.

I was having lunch recently with a really great friend and we were talking about how to improve our online business presences. We were tossing ideas back and forth about the other’s site when she hit me with a doozy.

What exactly makes me different from the other boudoir photographers out there?

Moving forward. Always moving forward.

New email address for inquiries and tis the season.

Today I’m proud to announce an email account just for this site. The mark(at)sensualphotosbymarkk.com account is now active and ready to be used. Drop me a line there to say hello, ask questions about a session, let me know it’s working, et cetera.

Stay tuned for more changes like page design to upgrade the overall viewer experience.

On a different note. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Time to think about a gift for yourself or for that special someone. I will be talking about this more in the coming days. Right now I’m just putting the idea in your head.

Well, that and I wanted a reason to use this amazing image from last season.

Ann – Part I.

This seriously sensual session was so good I need to break it down into sections.

I usually do edgy, editorial type shoots. Working with Mark was great change of pace. I felt so soft and feminine. Mark made me feel comfortable so I was able to let go of the world.” – Ann

What can I say about Ann? I could say that she blew me away with her presence. I could say that her captivating eyes could stop ships with a wink. I could say that she belongs on the cover of major magazines. I could also say that her humor and quirkiness made working with her a breeze.

I could say all that but I think the images say that and so much more so I’m going to let them do the majority of the talking.

Angelina’s sensual session.

The experience was excellent over all. I had a lot of fun and felt very comfortable during the session. Mark handled himself in a very professional manner and I felt in control during the session. – Angelina.

Thanks Angelina :-).

One of the first things I discuss with someone who is considering a sensual session is just who is in control. My response has always been the same – they are. They control what we shoot, where we shoot, when we shoot and what happens to the images after the shoot. They control everything.

Arlandra’s session

Arlandra’s session

I’m settling into this new, lighter look quite well. I’m also settling into using my place as the setting for these images. As always it’s not what you have but how you use it that matters and, in this case, my place is turning out to be a great place to shoot. I’ve purchased an antique perfume bottle, a brownie camera, the netting, small pillows, some jewelry and, of course, the red velvet couch to add flavor and context to the images.

Arlandra stopped over for a session earlier in the week. After going through outfits we decided to start on the bed, framed by natural light coming through the window. She put on some mood music and climbed up into the king-sized bed surrounded by netting. She really took to the setting and lost herself in the concept of her in a Princess bed setting. She was magical in the lighting and I took full advantage of it.
