The formula for a sucessful session is 5 percent looks and 95 percent attitude/spirit.

Christina was the make-up artist for another boudoir client. She liked what she saw so much she decided to have her own session.

Christina and I have known of each other for a bit. We were friends on Facebook as she is a make-up artist and local model but we never met face to face.

We started chatting more seriously when she was hired to do a client’s make-up for a boudoir session. We compared notes and shared ideas to make sure the client shined for her session. Needless to say that shoot went off without a hitch and the images were stunning thanks, in part, to Christina.

Our conversations shifted after that. She voiced a desire to have her own session which I was all for. She has a classic Hollywood look and she could pull off fun one moment and switch to smoldering immediately after that. I’ve always said that the formula for a successful session is 5% looks and 95% attitude/spirit. She has an abundance of both.

Heads up, Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads.

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.

Miss F’s first Sensual Session.

Slowly getting back into the swing of things and why I encourage reacting over posing.

The move to my new place has been mostly completed. Everything is here and now it’s just a matter of finding the right place for everything in this new space. I can’t wait to get started shooting here as the light and space are better than the old one.

Unfortunately, due to the effort put forth in relocating, I’ve created a backlog of images to be edited and posted. I have my work cut out for me in the coming days as I try to climb the mountain of images waiting to be processed in post-production. The effort will be worth it as there’s some truly amazing new images waiting for their moment in the sun.

Take Miss F. here. We got together for a sensual session a few weeks ago. Although she had some experience with modeling she gave it up for a while. Now wants to get back into it and thought this was a good way to announce her return.

Chelsey’s first sensual session with me.

Let’s show off the real, sensual, natural, you.

Chelsey came to me wanting to do some sensual images. I was honored that she had asked me to help her out in getting new images and was truly excited about the opportunity to work with someone like her.

You see, she is not what some in the market would call “standard.” She is not 5’8 and 100 pounds. She is not Caucasian nor is she a blonde. She is, in fact, perfectly, wonderfully, human.

Now, if you’ve been a regular reader of this page then you know where I stand on what is “beautiful.” To be bluntly honest, I think all women of all sizes, age, shape, ethnicity, et cetera, are beautiful. It is my core belief that everyone is beautiful as they are, right now, and it is my job to bring out that beauty.
