Light my fire, a boudoir gift for her fireman! Los angeles boudoir session

Every client is unique, every session a bit different – it is one of the things I love about boudoir.  This one was no exception.

When my client contacted me to book her session , one of the first things she asked was “what to bring”. I get that question A LOT.  Since I love texture, and playing with style and having your boudoir experience be as fashion forward and unique to you as possible – my question back is usually the same ” what does he love & what style do you want most to have?”  Because let’s face it – boudoir may be for the man in your life, but it is also definitely for us too. Who doesn’t want to see themselves with a flawless tush, looking our sexiest in lingerie.

So as soon as she told me her man was a firefighter – I said bring on the uniform! And she did not disappoint.

One of my favorite parts of my sessions actually happens before the photography even starts. When my client is getting her make-up & hair done, and I get a chance to let her relax and learn all sorts of cool things about her – and find what we have in common.  Turns out , we had quite a bit in common.  She is a HUGE animal lover- and let me say – that gets BIG bonus points with me.  After a hour of chatting I felt as if we had been friends for a long time.

When the time came to start her session I was really excited to play with all her fun looks she brought with her . To say I have too many favorites from her session would be a understatement, so I think this post might be picture heavy – which means you get to enjoy seeing how glamorous and fabulous this hottie is 🙂

To my dog loving, fire fighter wife – THANK YOU for coming so far for your session and for trusting me to take your boudoir pictures. It was a absolute honor!

Accidentaly in love, my passion for boudoir photography!

Accidently in love best describes my passion for boudoir photography. let me explan. Boudoir was never my plan. In truth boudoir was more like something I stumbled in to. A friend of mine and fellow photographer shared with me some boudoir images she had done while we were both at a photography convention – and I was totally inspired. It was like a giant lightbulb went off in my head – I knew this was something I had to try out. After lots of research and practice I gave it a go – and had my first “official session” and like my addiction to handbags, I was hooked.

For the greater part of my adult life, fashion was my career. So every time I pick up my camera, plan a session or edit a photo – fashion is always in my mind. Boudoir was like this instant way for me to tap into the couture images that swim in my head all day long , and create this unique world of magazine fashion meets lingerie.

And like every unexpected gift, came the many unexpected surprises that have meant so much. Boudoir is personal. It creates this instant relationship with my clients of gratitude. Gratitude? Well, first of all they are trusting me and bearing all for someone they don’t know. That trust I am grateful for.  Then there are the laughs. And trust me when you are spending a few hours in lingerie and with a camera, we have many laughs. For that I am thankful for. And then there are the relationships.  Getting to know my clients, and find out who they are doing this personal gift for, and why they have stretch marks (the birth of the first baby) or how they met the significant other that the pictures are for … it forms a instant friendship.

So to fully embrace this passion of mine I have created a website devoted exclusively to it.  I hope you take some time to check out the images I love so much.

I look forward to meeting you!
