Black Bodysuit for Boudoir

Still on the simplicity kick here… a black long sleeve body suit. With coloring like snow white… K looks absolutely stunning in this suit. You can find similar ones at Yandy.com, AmericanApparel.com or even Amazon.

Boudoir pro tip: the ones without crotch snaps are better if you can find them.

5 "Outfits" in one hour - A simple, but sexy shoot with Lavish Albuquerque and Ms. J.

So many of my clients tell me they have no idea what to wear. This is from a recent shoot with J. After a dozen or more shoots together, we always wonder if we can get something unique. Well, we did. But here’s the coolest thing, we used practically nothing for this and got a huge variety of looks in a one-hour photoshoot.

Outfit #1: White sheets and a lot of skin

Outfit #2: nothing but skin

Outfit #3: a body necklace we have in studio

Outfit #4: a cute little bodysuit you can get pretty much anywhere

Outfit #5: a sexy bikini that she brought

I occasionally browse Amazon because prime means that even procrastinators like me can get last minute lingerie in time for their photoshoot. These items aren’t the finest quality like Agent Provocateur or Honey Birdette, but they’ll photograph beautifully in a pinch. Please note that the default color on the list is not necessarily what I recommend. When in doubt, black or red. Never white stockings. Ever.

Lighting for Boudoir - New Mexico Studio

When I started photography back in 2006ish, I knew absolutely nothing about light. I knew how to point a camera at a subject, I knew basic posing, and I knew how to make a woman feel comfortable in front of the camera. My studio was called “Photography by Leslie Anne.” My photographs were as generic as my name.

In 2008ish, I attended a workshop with one of the most brilliant wedding photographers in the world. Jerry Ghionis offered a workshop just one state away and I jumped at the opportunity.

The first thing we did was publicly display our portfolio for critique. I was pretty proud of my work. Jerry had other opinions. He basically told me that all of my light was flat and boring. Well, then…

Turns out, he was right. Luckily, the next 3 days were dedicated to seeing light. To understanding the difference in high key, low key, short light, broad light and flat light. We learned to use buildings as reflectors, to tuck models into strange places to get some artistic framing and how to turn a warehouse wedding into a memorable photo op.

I don’t photograph weddings anymore, but I credit his teachings to knowing and understanding light.

This photo was taken in my studio with the same light and the same angle for the model. Each says something entirely different to me and appeals to different viewers.

Which light do you prefer?

Oh, and he’s the one who gave me the idea for the studio name, LAVISH. Huge improvement in the name. He still offers workshops, so if you’re still learning photography as a professional, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

THE Tutu with K in Our Albuquerque Studio

Adeana and I attended the Association of International Boudoir Photographers (always learning to better serve you!) in Boulder, Colorado recently. We came back recharged and ready to play with a willing model. K was perfect the job. She’s a mom (like most of our clients), but she’s also a classically trained dancer. She is also studying acting, so I actually think I’ll have to have her back in for another shoot and let her take more control. But for now, I wanted it to be quite similar to a shoot I’d have with any other client.

She brought a pretty little tulle skirt of her own, but once I saw it, I knew I had to show her my huge pastel pink tulle skirt. She couldn’t see my grin behind the mountain of tulle I was carrying, but I couldn’t wait to see her reaction.

She just about squealed and said,

“Oh my god! My dream tutu!”

Here are a few shots I wanted to share. If you’re interested in where I got the skirt, shoot me an e-mail. I have a little girls’ version, too.

J's Bridal Boudoir Shoot in Albuquerque

Dear J,

You were one of the most beautiful brides I've photographed. Women like you give me the urge to come out of wedding photography retirement.We met over the phone since you were coming all the way from Midland, Texas. We chatted between flights because we needed to get you booked asap. I remember hanging up and thinking that this was going to be so much fun. Your enthusiasm was obvious, and that's the best kind of photoshoot. We wanted to surprise your groom with a gift that he'd love. We created a photoshoot to be bright and airy. To show off your smile. I knew that we could create photos that showed him just how sexy and confident you are.

Some women worry about fading their tan lines before a boudoir photoshoot, but I think it adds to the allure. What do you think?

I'm so glad you wore your wedding shoes that had so much bling on top and the bottom had the prettiest teal bottoms for your "something blue." This is one of my favorite photos.

Your engagement ring is so beautiful. I'm sure that every time you look at it, you fall in love with B all over again.

Thank you J for trusting me with capturing you as a beautiful bride-to-be. I can't wait to have you and B back next year to celebrate your anniversary.

Sincerely,

Leslie

Our new dark and moody bedroom studio set!

If you've been to my Albuquerque studio, you know that I love bright and airy. Putting women in all-white room assures that cellulite and wrinkles are never to be seen.  But I do like to get a bit more raw and moody. In the past, I've had to drag out the huge 4x8 black and white v-flats to cut down most of the light. Effective, but I'd rather use my time taking photos of you than setting up the studio for moody photos. When the seamstress next door left a vacancy, I jumped at the chance. I painted it my favorite grey pain from Sherwin Williams. I strung up piles of sheer curtains and transformed a pretty weird and ugly space into the perfect place to capture the photos I longed for.

So now when you come into the studio, we'll capture some gorgeous photos in the skin-illuminating white room that you'll love, then we'll jump next door for some more sensual photos that will drive him wild.

By the way, isn't Miss J's hair incredible? That's natural folks. Her hair is what most people spend $$$$ creating with highlights and extensions.

Miss L - Lavish Boudoir - Albuquerque, New Mexico - 2018

Miss L, We absolutely adored photographing you. Your enthusiasm was contagious. I couldn't have had more fun during a session. You've got a kind of sass without having even a hint of snark.

That strappy red slip you brought in is perfect for boudoir. So perfect, I went and ordered one for the studio. It showed off your curves fabulously.  The cowboy boots and button down gave a sweet playful edge while the white sheets are always timeless. Especially with the bedroom-eyes gaze you have.

Thank you so much for choosing Lavish. I'm so glad you're already telling your friends. If they're as much fun as you, we'd LOVE to have them.

Cheers!

Miss J - Bunny Mask Boudoir

JW-Lavish-Boudoir-66.jpg

Fashion Boudoir Photography in New Mexico

J has been a part of the Lavish family since she hired me nearly 10 years ago. She was 21, and ready to claim her beauty in photographs. I don't photograph a lot of young women. Let's be honest, they look so good in their selfies, they don't need a professional to coach them.

Creating art together as model and photographer

But J has always appreciated the art of boudoir and loves to collaborate. We've done several other shoots together and somehow we always come up with something new.

When J told me she was flying into Albuquerque for an overnight layover, we knew we had to make this happen. So on a Friday evening, we both sipped champagne (I usually don't partake with clients, but this was for fun) and played dress up. She brought piles of beautiful clothing, but sadly we ran out of sunlight. Of course it was one of the 10 rainy days that New Mexico gets in a year.

What to do in Albuquerque on a rainy night.

But I brought out the studio lights, this awesome bunny mask from Yandy, a pair of fishnets and together we created a brand new style.

I must say I looooooove them. What do you think?

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 | Maternity Boudoir

AP-Lavish-Boudoir48_WEB.jpg

Miss A is one of the most radiant pregnant mamas. She's a trainer, so it's not a surprise that she stayed super fit. In fact, we had to push her belly to its fullest even though she was pregnant with TWINS! Yup, that tiny belly is 30 weeks along with twins and this isn't her first pregnancy. Don't we all wish we could be so radiant? I wanted something that celebrates her unique and vibrant personality. She brought in some fantastic wardrobe options, and of course I had to photograph her on the bed set, inspired by Christina Aguilera's pregnancy photos.

Lavish-Boudoir-Photo-Albuquerque-2-e1512859210789.jpg

People have been asking how long I've been a boudoir photographer... and I surprise even myself when I say 6 years.  Holy cow. That's a long time. I started in a home studio in Valdosta, Georgia.  I knew basically no one, but I needed a portfolio. So I dug around on some modeling websites and found A.  We had a collaboration with Randy Buchanan (makeup artist) and decided to go for it. She was the first model for whom I started coaching emotion. Not only was she aaaaadorable, but she was so sweet and totally trusted me. That might have been when I knew this genre was for me.  Thank you, A, for trusting me and being my guinea pig. I still love these photos, even though it's 6 years, and 3 studios late.  Love from Albuquerque, Leslie.lavish boudoir albquerquelavish boudoir albquerquelavish boudoir albquerquelavish boudoir albquerquelavish boudoir albquerque

Miss J | Mom's Day Off

JPO-2016-Lavish-Boudoir-13.jpg

J, You won me over with wine, chocolate and bedroom toys. Wait, that sounds so wrong. Ha! But really, when I went to a friend of a friend's house for your Pure Romance party, I honestly wasn't all that enthusiastic.  I usually end up spending money on stuff I don't need. But you were so charming from the beginning with scooting your adorable 1 year old out the door with his daddy, your somewhat obsessive cat, enormous dogs and welcoming smile that crinkles your eyes.

Photo by Leslie Cersovski at Lavish Boudoir - Albuquerque, New Mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.comHere's the thing, and I haven't told you this before, but I totally misread you on first impression. I thought you were shy, reserved and far from the confident, sensual woman you really are.  I knew you were a whole different woman, when you started acting out a particularly funny moment one might encounter in bed. THAT was a woman I wanted to photograph.

Photo by Leslie Cersovski at Lavish Boudoir - Albuquerque, New Mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.comSo I sent you a little voucher to show you what I do, and I was ecstatic when you called. I was in Florida visiting family and my kid had barfed on me that morning (twice). So to say it was the highlight of my day would be the understatement of the year.

Photo by Leslie Cersovski at Lavish Boudoir - Albuquerque, New Mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.com

We did your consults and tried on the new teddy I had from Yandy.com and a super sexy shaper skirt that seemed like it was made for you.  We found you a pretty lacy little bra from Claudette, because as you pointed out, you hadn't really lingerie shopped since before your baby. Your curves made your lingerie look beautiful.

Photo by Leslie Cersovski at Lavish Boudoir - Albuquerque, New Mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.com

You mentioned you had done a boudoir shoot before, and I got so nervous. It's always a bit intimidating to photograph someone who has expectations in place. But I think we nailed it.  How about 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?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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 E | Hot Mama

EG-2015-Lavish-Boudoir-21.jpg

Dear E, It was fate... a tiny little vendor fair. Like ten people attended... but you did! You had your beautiful daughter with you.  I'm not so great at those kinds of events. One time a young woman in South Georgia went running (literally running) away when she saw what I offer, and I think that traumatized me a bit.  So I quietly showed you my samples and I crossed my fingers. You mentioned your long-distance relationship, and that you'd been toying with the idea of a boudoir shoot for him.

For him... ha.  That's how it all starts. Then it turns into this experience of being pampered, taking care of yourself.  You're a single mom, who works and goes to school.  So basically, you have about .2 seconds to yourself on any given day.

You were so amazing at showing your sensual side.  You have any almost feline quality to your confidence. It just pours from your photos.  I loved creating the too-hot-for-the-blog shower shots.  Whew!

I know you said your guy was thrilled (duh!), but what I'm most excited about is your own folio box. A box of gorgeous photos to remind yourself that you're worth it.

I cannot wait to photograph you again. It was such an honor for you to spend your hard-earned money with me.  I think you'll treasure these photos for a lifetime... oh and he will too.
