Boudoir, in my mind, is a place where a woman can drop her mental and physical armor and just enjoy being a woman.
The best thing about doing what I do means I get to work with such a diverse group of people. I have yet had a “typical” boudoir session. Each of us is unique. We are perfectly, wonderfully, ourselves.
I’m not talking just about age, ethnicity, or size. I’m also taking about personalities. Which means, when combined with my desire to capture them simply being themselves, that no two sessions will ever be the same.

I couldn’t have had a better time and the images are amazing. Book your couples session today.
Doing a couples boudoir session has always been on my photographer’s Bucket List. The desire to capture the essence of a relationship in a sensual manner has always intrigued me both artistically and technically. Recently I had a chance to cross off that item on the list.

There would be doubt in their eyes and discomfort would be reflected in the way they posed. I want to capture true, unfettered, desire in its purist form. I wanted honest actions and reactions with no posing as they moved about.
Enter Sam and Chris.

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.
