Mr. & Mrs. F - Boudoir - San Francisco

Mrs. F is a regular client of mine from the Bay Area of California.  I shot her wedding way back when and have done 3 boudoir shoots with her.  In fact, she was my first in a gorgeous suite in a beautiful San Francisco hotel.  This time,  I wanted to collaborate with my favorite Sacramento makeup artist, Courtney Carmack of Kiss & Makeup.  We wanted to do a darker boudoir shoot with a sort of goth theme.  I know... so different from my usual style.  We started shooting and chatting.  This girl can pose and sell it!  Anything I asked of her, she was game.  Anyway, we started talking about her husband's tattoos.  The three of us decided that we would have to drag him to the shoot and incorporate his ink and a little fake blood. (Yes, Courtney just happened to have fake blood in her kit. Ha!)   He was pretty hesitant at first, but once we got "the shot," and told him he could go, he said, "That's it?  Just that? No more."  I think he was enjoying his moment in the spotlight.  I just wanted to share this shoot with y'all and say a big thank you to Mr. & Mrs. F!

Miss A - Boudoir - San Francisco

Miss A and I were connected through a former client.  Thanks Miss K!  She just got married this month and decided to do this as a special treat for her new hubby.  Lucky guy, right?  She hired Courtney from Kiss & Makeup to do the perfect sexy bride look.  She brought along a piece from the VS Sexy Little Bride line and it was gorgeous.  I already posted a sneak preview of a few of her pictures, but I wanted to keep her face concealed until after her wedding.  I didn't want to ruin the surprise.  It's been driving me crazy because she's just so friggin' gorgeous and it was such a shame to crop out her face.  But now she's officially wed and the cat is out of the bag.  Thanks Miss A for trusting me to help start your marriage off on a decidedly sexy note.  Congrats!
