Shawna updated her own boudoir photography blog.

We did a sensual session when she was here visiting family recently.

Shawna is a Byron, Georgia-based boudoir photographer who wanted to experience what it was like being the subject of a sensual session as well as celebrate recent life changes. Go to her blog here to read what she has to say about the experience and her message to others thinking about doing a boudoir session.

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.

Miss KJ’s Super Session.

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.

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.

One thing every woman should bring to a boudoir session.

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.

Things are getting edgier here.

The following post might raise some eyebrows. That is my goal.

Sorry for the absence. The Valentine’s Day crunch took up all my free time. Mind you, I’m not complaining at all. I’m just now turning the corner and getting back to a normal routine of posts. Thank you for being patient. I hope the following was worth the wait.

I don’t think the images that follow should surprise anyone. The recent trend in my work has been more into the dark and mysterious. More visceral. More elemental. More sensual. There are so many paths to explore when it comes to sensuality. I’ve been fighting the urge to go down them but I’ve conceded that it is inevitable. So down the rabbit hole we go.

There’s still time to give the gift of boudoir.
