Bay Area Boudoir Photography/ California Girl Claire

Boudoir photography with a natural modern vibe

Claire and I met before her boudoir photo shoot to discuss what style of photos she was interested in doing….I always like to meet with my clients before hand to get a sense of what their all about. Also to discuss location, wardrobe, hair & makeup etc. I find this complimentary consultation priceless.  Anyhow, while chatting with Claire, I totally got her totally chill, classic California Girl style. With that gorgeous sun dipped hair and rocking’ body. She had done body building and had the abs to prove it! Hair and Makeup by Brittney Lee  https://makeupbybrittneylee.com

Petaluma Boudoir Photographer Getting sultry Boudoir photoshoot

So many times during my boudoir photo shoots, I hear ladies saying they are doing a boudoir photoshoot is to make them feel and look beautiful. Feel like a WOMAN!!!! In this rat race we call life these days, there is just not enough time to look and feel like a sexy, desirable woman.  Add kids to that and your lucky to brush your teeth and comb your hair before walking out the door. Beautiful Alice, pictured below is the mother of seven children!!! Yes, that’s right…..SEVEN! My hat is off to this courageous lady. Actually, she handles it beautifully and has A GREAT sense of humor. If anyone needs a time out to feel and look super hot, it’s a woman with kids…..

 

  

Bay Area Model photographer/Devin’s modeling portfolio shoot

Devin and I met while she was working as a barista and going to school at the Academy of Art in San Francisco! I was thrilled to work with this exotic beauty! This photo shoot was for her modeling portfolio with a strong boudoir influence. The styling is modern and classic using several outfits from “For Love and Lemons”  “Burberry” and vintage items. My favorite piece has to be the black velvet high waisted skivvies from “For Love and Lemons”. Devin looked AMAZING in them!

Bay Area Editorial/Fashion Photographer/Native American Tribal shoot

This shoot is a collaboration with Novum Crafts! I had already been following them on Instagram when they approached me to do a shoot with them! I was so honored! Daniela at Novum had me choose an Indian headdress that I wanted to shoot with. I chose a small, natural Indian feather headdress . It was VERY important to me to represent these headdresses with the utmost respect for the Native American culture. Sooooo, the stunning model in these photos (Ciera) is from the Yeron, Blackfoot and Chippewa tribes! Ciera is devoted to her heritage and practices her Native American traditions. My horse “Oliver” participated in the shoot as well. He was not particularly happy about it. The land we photographed on “Rancho Robles Lomas” aka “Chocolate Horse” is sacred land. The “Miwok” tribe lived there 150 plus years ago. Check out Novum Crafts beautiful headdresses in a variety of lovely colors and styles! Novum01

North Bay Area Boudoir Photographer/ Mary’s photo shoot for her Lt. Colonel airman in Kuwait

It’s that time of year again……Love is in the air and here’s a fun love story!

Mary and Mac met years ago when she was a Playboy Bunny at the Lake Geneva, WIS  Club ( home of many Chicago mobsters in the early days) and Mac an Airman in the Air Force! WAY TO GO MAR!!!! But the timing wasn’t right, and sadly they parted ways. Years later in a parking lot of all places, they happened to run into each other! Mary, now very successful in real estate and Mac, a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force! They reconnected but sadly Mac was  sent as a private defense contractor to run the Efforts in Kuwait as chief of the El Mubarek AFB….(32 years of service to our country so far!) They are continuing there relationship, long distance. Mary in the Bay Area and Mac in Kuwait. To keep that flame hot, Mary did a photoshoot with me! I photographed her in the studio and on location on Sonoma Mountain.The outdoor photos focus on the outdoor lifestyle the two like to share. I loved working with this outgoing and beautiful woman! I designed a book for her to give to Mac for Christmas! Well…….It was a hit! Below is an email I received from Mary.

According to Mac….you are the official favorite photog of El Mubarek AFB in Kuwait….Hahahahah…the men there saw the book you made for me on top of Mac’s Christmas box the day it arrived at his office and he went out to a hanger to tend to something and when he came back he said there were no less than 10 airmen sitting in his office…A lieutenant said ” Fuck Col Mac, we’ve got a whole new level of respect for you now…how the hell did you ever a get a woman like that …IS SHE BLIND???”
 
Soooo funny!
 

Petaluma Boudoir Photographer/April’s Valentine’s Day Surprise!

April’s super sexy photo shoot is a Valentine’s gift for her husband…. This gorgeous woman is one hot mama to 4 girls! This session was shot in the studio with a combination of natural light and studio strobe lights. April’s hair & makeup was done to perfection by Michelle at “Essence Hair Studio”. The wardrobe was simple and classic with a selection of lovely bras and panties, pearls, torn jeans, heels and stockings. I like to shoot a combination of beauty and artistic images during my boudoir sessions. To add a little more fun to this session, April wore athletic apparel from her hubby’s favorite college football team! I’m sure her man will LOVE all of them!
