Naoma’s sensual session at Virginia Beach’s oceanfront.

She did it for herself, as should you.

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.

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.

My first session with Athena won’t be my last.

The best boudoir sessions happen when the client is just being themselves.

First – a little business. I’ve set aside next Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday for last minute Valentine’s sessions. After that there will won’t be enough time to get the finished product back before the big day. Most spots are filled but there are a couple openings left for those looking to get one in

Now onto the fun stuff.

I had the great honor of working with Athena recently. She has a powerful presence that I just adore. She can flip from sweet and cute to “whoa, momma” and everything in between in a heartbeat. We talked about a session where, as it was the first time we’ve worked together, we could explore more of the softer side as a way to introduce ourselves to each other. If it went well, then we could explore further later on.

The return of the sassy Miss T.

Announcing Celebration Sessions.

Miss T., a veteran of this site, was recently in town visiting family for the holidays. Time is always tight during such things so it was an honor when she reached out to me to do a session during her short stay.

As always, whenever we get together, I have all I can do to hold on and keep up as she is just a force of nature in front of the camera. She becomes this magical thing, I just try to document it as best I can.

During the session we chatted about a variety of things. I mentioned a concept that had been brewing in my head for a bit – Boudoir Celebration Sessions. She really took to the idea and gave me some invaluable insights.

Just a quick update today.

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.

Miss F’s recent sensual session.

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.

Mrs. K’s first ever sensual session.

Women like her are exactly why I do this.

People always ask me what I get out of doing sensual sessions like the one here I recently did with Mrs. K. The answer is simple – simple, deep fulfillment.

These (mostly) women come to me full of hope and doubt. They know they want to be shown in a certain way. Which way is something we discuss beforehand. They also come with concerns and uncertainty. This is also something we discuss beforehand. We build a personal game plan together that shows them off in the best possible way.

Then they put their trust and faith into me to present them with images that show that themselves off. I can’t stress enough just how important this responsibility is. I literally have the ability to build up someone’s self image or confirm their worst fears. It is something that I never treat lightly.
