Normally I would post some words about a recent session here in an effort to inspire others. This time, however, I’m going to let Naoma do the talking. Please follow the link below to read, in her own words, about why she decided to do a sensual session, and what she thinks of the whole experience. Then please come back to read my take and look at the images.
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.
The holiday season is in full swing but there’s still time to get a session in.
Today’s entry is going to be short as crunch time is here. Between working and the business there’s just not enough time in a day. I know you know what I’m talking about as I’m sure you’re just as busy. So, to answer some questions:
Yes, I’m still alive.
Yes, I’m still doing sessions. As most of the people I work with do not want their images posted online I am limited in what I can show here. That’s why today I’m posting images from a recent session with a familiar face, my great, beautiful, totally chill, friend Sarah. As always, I received clearance before doing so.
Exploring the Dark Side further with fine art form.
Oh how this is getting so very exciting.
When I started my photographic journey in earnest decades ago I found myself firmly in the realm of black and white fine art nude and form. My first solo show was heavily weighed towards this genre not to mention my BFA graduation portfolio. An example of that work was awarded the President’s Award and now is part of the permanent collection of SUNY Oswego.
Sometimes the universe aligns just right and the results are stellar.
Wow. Just wow. I am literally at a loss for words with these images.
The recent decision to incorporate the dark with the light has seem to strike a nerve. The response I’ve received, from messages, emails, private chats, et cetera, has been a bit overwhelming in a good way.
And then, as if a sign from a higher power, Susie reaches out to me out of nowhere and says she would like to do a session. Sight unseen I agreed. The way she talked about herself and her personality had me hooked almost immediately. We agreed to play on the Dark side and the Light side.
I’m heading back tomorrow and primed to do more sensual sessions.
Today is my last full day in central NY. Three weeks flew by so fast.
I’m re-energized and inspired to try new ideas. I’ll be back tomorrow and ready to rock out more sensual, boudoir, nudoir, bridal, maternity, baby bonding, nude, form, erotic, bondage, couples, and bdsm, at my place, your place, a suite at a high end hotel, or out on location like downtown, a farm, and more.
I am proud and thrilled to announce the return of the popular sunRISE beach sessions for those looking for something a bit more edgy. No one is around at that time so we can get quite a bit more daring. It’s not for everyone but it is something special for those willing to take a chance.
There is no real “season” for boudoir, bringing something unexpected to a session, and introducing “Noudoir”.
Here it is, April first. The birds are chirping, the trees are busting out (and leaving a mess on my car, I might add. Ugh.), and it’s warming up out there. It’s also that time of year when a young photographer’s fancy turns to thoughts of heading back outside for sessions.
Now, granted, I’m one of them. I simply adore holding portrait sessions outside, on location. I love it when the world is my studio. But that doesn’t mean I’m closing up the boudoir shop until the demand for intimate holiday gifts returns in the fall. Oh hell no. I shoot boudoir all year long.
