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.

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.

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

Welcome to Amanda, our new studio assistant/miracle worker!

AW-Lavish-Boudoir-01.jpg

Meet Amanda!Amanda White - Lavish Boudoir - Albuquerque

 

 

If you're a recent inquiry, you've probably heard Amanda's voice by  now. Amanda and I met at the beginning of the school year at the bus stop. Talk about opposites attracting for this friendship!

Amanda: No fewer than two colors (at least one vibrant) in her hair at any given time

Leslie: Thought it was super bold to dye her hair a natural shade of red


Amanda: Knows where everything is at all times

Leslie: Loses stuff all...the...time (like my camera during sessions)


Amanda: Cooks brilliantly and even makes the delicious chocolate dipped strawberries for my sessions

Leslie: Burns toast


Amanda: Fearlessly extroverted

Leslie: Classic introvert


I'm turning 35 tomorrow and I'm well aware of my strengths and weaknesses. Since leaving Georgia and Adeana, I've really been trying to compensate for my weaknesses with Lavish. It's been a struggle to grow as I'd like and provide the organizational consistency that my clients deserve.

A smart business woman knows when to fill the gaps... so I took a deep breath and asked Amanda if she'd join my team.  She said yes!  ***I sound like I proposed, ha****

It's been a little more than a month and I cannot even express how invaluable she's been to Lavish and to you, the clients. Now you get the best of everything... my wild creative brain and her strategic planning brain.

So please welcome this GORGEOUS and funny and brilliant and wonderfully type-A woman to the Lavish Team.

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!

Glamour Photoshoot

Sometimes a woman simply cannot recognize her own stunning beauty. M and I have been friends for a couple years now. We have 5 small children between us (me: 2, her: 3), so sometimes we'll go months without seeing each other. But she's one of the most vibrant women I've ever met. She's energetic, she's positive and always up for just one more glass of chardonnay.

Glamour Photoshoot by Lavish Boudoir  by Leslie Cersovski at Lavish Boudoir™ AlbuquerqueI have been dying to photograph this stunningly beautiful woman since the day we met. And it's taken me months to convince her to step into my studio. I finally begged her to model glamour for me since most of my clients elect to have their photos in their undies. She's a conservative kind of girl, so I knew this was the only way. I explained that I needed a woman with such an awesome wardrobe to come do a completely g-rated photoshoot and let me film some behind the scenes.

She started in makeup with Edgar Campos (recently profiled in ABQ, The Magazine) and he took a naturally gorgeous woman and emphasized her long lashes and toothpaste commercial smile. Glamour pictures at Lavish Boudoir™ Albuquerque- Sexy red dress, love her beautiful make up beautiful woman portrait wearing a gorgeous sexy red dress.

Thank you, M, for letting me photograph you. I know it wasn't exactly your idea of a great day, but when you told me... "That wasn't as bad as I thought," it meant the world to me. So here are some of your photos... come back and see the rest!

Cheers!

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?

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

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).

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.

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 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.

photo by leslie cersovski at lavish boudoir - albuquerque, new mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.com

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.

photo by leslie cersovski at lavish boudoir - albuquerque, new mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.com

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!

photo by leslie cersovski at lavish boudoir - albuquerque, new mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.com

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.

photo by leslie cersovski at lavish boudoir - albuquerque, new mexico - www.LavishBoudoir.com

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.

Miss G | Supermom

GF-2016-Lavish-Boudoir-33.jpg

Oh, G... if I could just photograph clients like you all the time, my heart would be so full.  I remember you calling to inquire.  It was a sunny day and I was enjoying the weather while working from my backyard.  You sounded so nervous, I could hear the tremor in your voice.  Honestly, when we hung up... I thought I'd never hear from you again. I can't tell you how proud I was to see the booking notice in my inbox.  

I thought you were going to cancel on me at any given point.  I kept waiting for the e-mail that said, "I'm just not ready."  But you were so brave.

GF-2016-Lavish Boudoir-11

I cannot believe you didn't bring a thing to the try-on session besides a dress (despite specifically wanting a boudoir shoot). I'm sorry I couldn't stop giggling about the hot pink sports bra you wore under all my studio lingerie. But you rallied and we made it work... and I never would have guessed that a pair of leopard panties from WalMart could be so damn sexy. I hear a little Gretchen Wilson playing in my mind when I see that photo.

GF-2016-Lavish Boudoir-13

You were like this butterfly and I got to watch the whole transformation.  From the moment you looked in the mirror after the makeover... I knew this was going to be an epic shoot.  You looked, in a word... stunning.  You stood straighter, you smiled more easily and you were ready to rock it.

GF-2016-Lavish Boudoir-26

After making such tremendous strides in your weight loss, you look incredible.  And I think these photos reflected back to you the woman that you are (someone who deserves the best from life) and erased the woman you were (someone who was always putting others before yourself). You're a nurturer day in and day out, and that's why I think people love you.  But after a year of nurturing your body, I hope we got to help you nurture your soul.

GF-2016-Lavish Boudoir-41

Thank you G, it was an honor to photograph you.  I can't wait to have you back!

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.

Oh this light in Albuquerque! It's gorgeous. So bright and clean and unfiltered. I don't have studio yet, but I can only go so many days without getting someone in front of the camera. So I called up a past client and told her I needed her pretty face. Thank goodness for loyal clients/friends. B even managed to get away from her scrumptious baby boy for a couple hours for a little pampering. Lucky momma. Beauty by Lavish Boudoir - albuquerque, new mexico - 2015

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.

I thought of all the negatives about my body and how they would photograph, I was sure I would be disappointed in the way I looked and feel worse about myself.  After having my first child my self-esteem took a big hit, this was a way to boost it back up again.

I sat in the makeup chair feeling like a tired new mother with maybe 2 hours of sleep, I got out of that chair feeling like a goddess.

[During the shoot I felt] comfortable and confident, which is saying a lot considering how little I was wearing! Leslie exudes an aura of confidence in what she does and it's contagious. From my very first pose I knew that I would look beautiful in the photos with her direction.

Stunning does not do my photos justice. They were sexy, classy and all I could have ever hoped for!"

C, I could not agree more.  You are an absolutely beautiful woman.

The Most Beautiful Woman in the World - and the cutest kid

Not that I'm biased, but I happen to think my mom and kid are just gorgeous.  Don't you agree?  My mom asked for some classy and conservative headshots for Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.  I was happy to oblige.  Leo photobombed his way into a few shots, but of course they turned out to be Grandma's favorites.  I love you momma.  You're my biggest cheerleader and an inspiration. beauty headshots
