Miss D | Glamour Photoshoot | Albuquerque, NM

lavish-boudoir-before-and-after.jpg

I'm a Cali girl by nature, but I love some sexy voluminous big hair glamour photos.

A letter to Ms D:

Ms. D, We've known each other 30ish years and I cannot believe you still let me do your makeup and take your photo. Ever since Christmas eve in the late '90s, we've been playing dress up. You've never needed much makeup to look AMAZING. Remember how everyone would tell you that you looked like the girl from My Girl? It's those crazy long lashes and doe eyes. Guess what... you're even prettier now. You don't need my help to be beautiful, but it sure is fun to play with the beauty God gave you. I love you so much, thank you for modeling for me.

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.

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.

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?

Thank you to you and your wonderful-adoring-husband-of-the-year (and good luck to his dreams of being a test pilot... so cool).

Another set of personal branding portraits for Miss J. We met at one of her Pure Romance parties, but that's all I'm going to say for now. I'm saving the details for her upcoming post of her super sexy boudoir photos. Makeup by Edgar Campos Hair by Andrew Madvin Photography by Leslie Cersovski

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.

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

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.
