“Doing a boudoir session should be something you choose to do for yourself.” – Shawna.
Every boudoir photography site I’ve seen always starts out with the premise that you should do a boudoir session “for that special someone.” Well, you know what? I’m going to buck against that. You know what I think? I think the most important reason why a woman should consider doing a boudoir session is to do it for themselves.
You DO matter, you ARE worth it, and you ABSOLUTELY deserve it. Empower yourself.
More images after the break.

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.

There’s always a first time for everyone. Even a seasoned pro.
This is one of those entries where I’m going to let the person in the photos do most of the talking. I just want to take a moment to thank everyone that has supported me on this journey. I truly love creating remarkable memories with amazing people. I am a better person because of each of you.
Now I’m turning this over to Tershia.

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.

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.
