Miss L - 50th Birthday Boudoir - Albuquerque, NM

LP-Lavish-Boudoir-063.jpg

L, I love that you came in knowing what you want and we rocked this 50th birthday boudoir photoshoot together.  Your love of Prince was THE best... I always play the same boudoir playlist but for you... Prince on Pandora. We even added a little nod to him with the purple ribbon in your image box.

It's kind of funny how we met. You e-mailed me and said, "You photographed my friend and I want to do this, too!" I checked my archives and I had no record of this friend. So I scheduled a meeting with you thinking that maybe she had a nickname or something. But I knew from your e-mail that we absolutely should meet for a studio tour.

We connected and I knew that I could create AMAZING photos for you. You had all these great ideas and I just knew that we were a good match.

You went ahead and booked me and we started the planning. The Prince shirt, borrowing the beautiful slip from my wardrobe, your slouchy sweater that was so sexy off the shoulder, white sheets and a high-fashion look with the high-waisted panties and push up bra.

Your photoshoot was effortless. You worked it like you've been doing this forever. There was never any awkwardness as you easily took my direction. I love it when that happens!

I loved sharing the reveal with your husband. You were a little bit hard on yourself, but he and I both agreed that you looked PHENOMENALLY sexy.

I didn't get to see your face when you opened the folio box for the first time since we did a hand-off delivery at Sandia, but I will always remember the text you sent afterward.  It absolutely made my week.

Thank you, L, for honoring me with this important celebration. I can't wait to have you and your daughter back for a glamour shoot.

Sincerely,

Leslie

Miss D | Body and Soul Transformation

d-Lavish-Boudoir-46_WEB.jpg

Body and Soul Transformation | ®Leslie Cersovski | Lavish Boudoir | Albuquerque, New Mexico Miss D - Your body and soul transformation is just so inspiring.

You came to me to celebrate an incredible accomplishment.  You lost a significant amount of weight (scroll to the bottom to see her before photo) and gained poise, a fabulous new wardrobe and the confidence to step in front of a camera as my model.

Your story touched my heart. How you spent your whole life hiding behind your weight.  How you always wondered what it would be like to feel beautiful. You spent decades caring for others and completely neglecting yourself.

You said the doctor told you that your body was not just heavy, but that you might not be around very long to care for those two beautiful boys you love so much. That was your wakeup call. Who would have guessed that the woman who emerged would be so much more than you already you were. You were already kind, you were already giving, you were already smart... they were just eclipsed by your fear of being seen.

Your doctor helped you on the journey and you absolutely nailed it. You were healthy, you were strong, you were ready to conquer the world and you asked me to help capture that in you.

So I asked if we could film you. Your personality is just captivating and I wanted YOU as a representative of everything boudoir is to Lavish. You said yes!

Your makeover with Edgar Campos was stunning and you warmed to the camera so quickly. Red lips and your velvety dark skin were just a dream to shoot.

Thank you...  thank you for taking care of yourself because you are an asset to this world. Thank you for trusting me and asking to be photographed.  Thank you for agreeing to let me share your beautiful story with the world.

You are such a blessing.

Sincerely,

Boudoir at 40 - Miss L- Albuquerque, New Mexico

LH-Lavish-Boudoir-086.jpg

LH-Lavish-Boudoir-002.jpgL, you are one of the coolest women I've encountered. You rolled up to your consult in this bad-ass Jeep. Not the kind for cruising around town to look cute, but the kind that may or may not have rolled over a few times. And here you were booking boudoir at 40 (something) and I knew you were going to rock it. You opened up about how you've found this great place in your life. How you're busy with travel, helping take care of your grandbaby and working on all the behind-the-scenes work for you and Hubby's business.

You've been working out and absolutely killing it in the gym. You've got this beautiful new home that you love to decorate with art that means something to you. When you gave me the tour of your pieces, the enthusiasm you have just radiates. You told me you were finally ready. That this was your time to just go for it and celebrate this time in your life.

You went all out with our deluxe shoot, and I'm so glad you did. I don't know how we could have narrowed down your outfits further. Everything from the tank and jeans to the beautiful bra and undies set brought out a different side to you. Even the football and rolled up jersey was awesome.

The photoshoot was effortless for me (even if it wasn't for your lower back) and we rolled through nearly 100 fabulous photos. Scrolling through, I could hardly wait to show you.

You brought Hubby to your reveal and I'm not sure which of the 3 of us loved your photos more. It just makes my heart sore to see how much he loves you and thinks of you as this goddess. Now you have the photos to prove it.

I hope you love the album and wall art for many many years. I hope that when you glance at your metal photos that hang over your bed, you feel sexy and beautiful and loved.

Thank you so much for picking me. I cannot tell you how excited I am to know you and I am sooooo looking forward to our future projects together.

Cheers!

Leslie

Miss A | 40th Birthday Glamour | Albuquerque, NM

AM-2016-Lavish-Photo-23_WEB.jpg

Her 40th birthday present to celebrate in the most glamorous way!

Oh Miss A, your smile lights up the world. We met last year at the Ronald McDonald House's Girls' Night Out. You and your besties were so dynamic. I kept my fingers crossed that you'd book a 40th birthday present to yourself because I knew that your mega-watt smile would be so photogenic.

She's a mom, an entrepreneur, a wife, a philanthropist, and all-around amazing woman. Take a peek at her beautiful photos and you'll be captivated by that twinkle in her eyes. 40 looks damn good on you!

Miss A | 50 & Fabulous

AS-2016-Lavish-Boudoir-62.jpg

Lovely A, We met at a networking event aaaages ago... the food was kind of terrible, but the company was great.  We talked about your work as a Rodan + Fields consultant and mine as a photographer. You mentioned enthusiastically that you had done a photoshoot years ago, and you had wanted to do it again.  I wanted you to book then and there, but I had to be patient.  After all, you're GORGEOUS and just about as sweet as can be. Patience is not my strong suit (see this post here).lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com -

When I put out the model call for "50 and Fabulous," you answered, even though you aren't quite there yet. Although you don't do much to represent that demographic because you have the body of a 22 year old and the skin of a 30 year old. But who am I to argue with the opportunity to photograph such a lovely woman?

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com - When we could finally make our calendars align, I was so excited.  One thing I especially loved is that you told your husband and that I think he was excited enough for the two of us.  He did everything from wardrobe advice to helping you see how beautiful you looked in your photos. I'm glad we got a couple of special ones with him in mind.  Husbands deserve to be spoiled, too. Maybe you can drop some hints during the next Agent Provocateur sale, because that corset was pretty freaking stunning on you.

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com -

Your gentle nature led to a sensuality that was peaceful and sweet, but sexy all-the-same.  Although I think our last set in the corset brought out a bit of daring in you.  But who wouldn't when they look like that?

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com - Thank you so much for modeling for me. I hope that you and Mr. K enjoy your folio box.

Miss A - Headshots - Albuquerque, New Mexico

AS-2016-Lavish-Boudoir-09.jpg

This is just a quickie post, because I wanted to share A's personal branding portraits. She has the most amazing skin, and credits it all to Rodan + Fields. Lots of women who are independent sales consultants for companies like R+F, Scentsy, Pure Romance, etc. don't have professional headshots, but they are remarkable business women who deserve to be taken seriously. First impressions are everything, so I made sure we got some fabulous photos she can use for work and her online presence.

Miss T | Curves are Sexy

TP-Lavish-Boudoir05.jpg

Dear T, Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you allowed me to photograph you.  I never know when I'm going to meet my next client, but I certainly wasn't expecting it at a garage sale with workout clothes on and a kid in tow. I am so glad you stopped me. When you told me, "I've always wanted to do something like that," I knew we had to connect.

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com

You've so graciously endorsed me to everyone from your sister to strangers, even before you stepped foot in my studio.  But you'd plan to book, then change your mind, then plan, then change your mind.  Finally, I knew it was in your heart to go through with it, but you needed a shove (I mean gentle nudge) in the right direction.

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com

You did a quick shoot and that emerald corset from the studio looked so GORGEOUS on you.  And of course we couldn't go wrong with white sheets. Your makeup was a bit overwhelming for a fresh-faced woman, but I knew you'd love it in the finished product. Red lips + blue eyes = magic

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com

When I forbade you from making hurtful comments about yourself, it's because those are unkind things for a person to say about a woman I consider a friend.  A human with so many beautiful physical and emotional qualities that I personally adore. If a stranger had walked in and said something like that to you, I'd have slapped him.

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com

The day of your photo reveal, I could tell you held your breath. Somehow, despite your enthusiasm for others to book, you had no idea what to expect.

lavish boudoir by leslie cersovski in Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2016 - www.LavishBoudoir.com

You cried, I cried... and I couldn't have been happier to show you just how sexy you are. It was an honor to be trusted by you.  I know that was no easy task.

Miss K - Glamour Photoshoot - Albuquerque

KJ-2015-Lavish-Boudoir-28.jpg

One of the first things K asked was if I had ever photographed a Native American.  Having come from South Georgia where the Native American population is .23%, I could honestly say no.  Well, unless you count my friend in high school who is 1/16th.  But, really, I take each woman as an individual, regardless of skin tone, ethnicity, hair type, and make them look as gorgeous as they ever have and more importantly make them feel AMAZING. I think her question touched on something, though.  Every woman who contacts me is a little bit nervous that somehow they won't look as glamorous as the women in our portfolios. Whether it's concerns about age, size, skin color, height... everyone seems to be surprised at their own beauty.  I think Adeana and I are the only ones who aren't surprised.  We see it from the moment a woman walks in our doors.

Miss M - Georgia - Lavish Boudoir

Miss-M-Lavish-Boudoir-Albuquerque.png

I just spoke with M about ordering a custom canvas for her wall and she mentioned that I haven't blogged her session.  Oh my gosh!  How could I have forgotten to blog about this GORGEOUS woman.  I mean seriously, this was one of my favorite shoots.  Let me tell you about why I love this woman.  Judging by these pictures, you'd never guess that she plays with mud and power tools all day, right?  M has a landscaping and dock company and she's not afraid to get her hands (and hair and feet) dirty.  She even brought along her work boots for a funny shot.  She raised her children on her own and created a business from nothing, all with her head held high.  She has been a hardworking and courageous woman for many years. It was such a treat to glam her up.  She rocked that Victoria's Secret strappy bra and undies like a model.  The white tank and undies were my idea.  I wanted to show her in a casual and sporty way with lots of smiles and laughter.  She has the kind of grin that makes you want to smile along with her.

Thank you, M, for trusting me to get you all girlied up.  You're beautiful with and without the glam treatment.
