Tats and Beauty!

I have always loved tattoo’s I think they are a form of art and the body is the canvas. To me tattoos should have meaning, they are with you forever I currently have a vine with 4 leaves one representing my commitment to live a healthier life. I have to admit though I haven’t  been as committed lately as I would like to be but it is a constant reminder to love myself and work towards a greater goal, My other 3 leaves represent my journey of loosing 30lbs thus far and they also represent my husband and two daughters. When I met Ms. S I knew I would love her, I failed to get the story on her tattoos (I am sorry Ms. S). She came in the beginning of the hectic Valentines season, but I promise I will work on that!! Love everything about this girl!!

The Beautiful Ms {O}

I have been slacking for a few weeks on the blog (alright it has been a full month or better hasn’t it :O )  I am sorry everyone. I am also short for words today :(  Part of it is because a lot of my work over the last month and a half has been dedicated to Valentine’s Day gift shoots so you can imagine I didn’t have a whole lot to show you! Here is my favorite of Ms O .. So happy she came in for a shoot, you are beautiful!!



A gift for any occasion

Mrs. {M} came to me because she wanted to do a shoot, as a gift to her husband. She shared that her husband a guy who has everything and is hard to buy for! So this statuesque bombshell gave him a surprise he was not expecting! A boudoir shoot for that special someone is always an appreciated gift for any occasion

Lovely Ms {W}

Miss W was referred to me through a colleague and friend. I was excited to fit her in last minute! Her fiance is on a deployment and wanted to do this for him as a gift!

Beautiful Miss {M}

So I write my blog posts weekly and then with a little help from my great friend Kandice, she perfects the wording for me because frankly I am a horrible writer! She is great with words, I am so thankful for her talents! So today I am writing and posting without her editing help, as she is in Las Vegas and getting married this Friday!! So Excited for her!! Have fun girl!! 😉

Today you will meet Miss {M} She was so much fun to work with she was excited and nervous at the same time totally normal I am sure you have heard me say that before.  So {M} was very quiet at first but as soon I lifted my camera and gave a little direction she started to glow and let go and had fun!! I remember her saying “I see why you like doing this it’s so much fun!”  I know I have said this before but the idea of playing dress up really does appeal to everyone!

“To start telling people that you’re beautiful, or just feel beautiful, just start acting like you are the most beautiful woman in the world. And it really improves everything! Because your sort of psyche responds to it – like this is truthful! “ ~ Margaret Cho

Giggly & Radiant

Meet Mrs. C she is fun giggly and really a great person! She came to me through Erica. Mrs. P is a Doula! She was a lot of fun to work with my favorite part was her giggle and although I imagine outside of the circumstances she is a truly happy and giggly person I imagine she was a little bit nervous! I can’t say I blame her! Everyone feels this way when the first come in to the studio for her session. Once you are there and having your hair and makeup done your nerves will calm! My staff is accustomed to the setting and the fact that you just might be running around in your bra and panties at some point during the day!

Check out the facebook picture i posted with her giggling.. one of my favorites!

Hot Red Dress

I was ecstatic when Miss A contacted me to do a session. Recently married, she wanted to give her groom a late wedding gift.  For those of you who are getting married this makes a perfect groom’s gift, nothing will surprise him more than a little black book for him of alluring pictures of you. This will also help you feel even more self-confident and radiant for your wedding day!
She was a natural in front of the camera, and we had a ball doing this shoot. Her red dress was a hit with the camera. In photo shoots you can get away with wearing dresses that may seem too tight or too short for public use, and she rocked this dress! Don’t be afraid to bring such a dress to your photo-shoot it may be the little surprise that blows us away! We also did some photos with the wings I have, and she was mesmerizing!

“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.”
