I'm going to let C's words speak for me... "Before my shoot I was nervous to say the least. At first I was as excited as one can be but as the shoot day drew closer I was second guessing my decision to go ahead with it. 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.

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!
