Bay area senior portrait photographer/ Blue Velvet Valentine

The blue crushed velvet and Carmel’s eyes were absolutely mesmerizing……. this is only one portion of the photoshoot which was perfectly planned during a break in this crazy rainy season. Valentine’s Day is this week and these photos capture the fun and fashion of the season. The blue velvet dress is from OOH LA LOFT. Makeup by Mandy at Sensational Skin Petaluma, Hair by Rapunzel’s. It all came together like perfectly at the French inspired hotel ,The Metro. This is a style I like to call Modern/Vintage! A perfect combo of the new and the old, the trendy and the classic. This shoot was so special because ,when Carmel was three, I had the pleasure of photographing her during a family portrait shoot! Carmel is now a Senior attending  St. Vincent’s High School. It’s just amazing seeing the little girl I photographed 15 years ago all grown up and so incredibly beautiful, both inside and out.

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!
