Miss A - Headshots - Albuquerque, New Mexico

AS-2016-Lavish-Boudoir-09.jpg

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 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.

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.

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.

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

I have been dying to photograph a redhead with great eyebrows.  I know... that sounds like a strange thing to look for.  I found this facebook group of New Mexico photographers and models... and there she was... with her red hair and fabulous bold eyebrows.  Yay!If you're a photographer, you know that models who aren't booked through an agency are notoriously unprofessional.  I e-mailed her and crossed my fingers.  Turns out she's as sweet and mature as she is beautiful.  We didn't get to spend a whole lot of time together... but I think we got some pretty great shots in the 45 minutes or so that we worked.  Isn't she just GORGEOUS?!

Red Beauty Lounge - Stylist Photos

Beauty-by-Lavish-Boudoir-2015-29.jpg

I'm in Albuquerque now, but we had a quick assignment to Little Rock.  It's always a priority to find an amazing salon because I'm pretty freaking picky about my hair.  When I started googling my favorite brands, Red Beauty Lounge popped up.  From the moment I stepped in, I was hooked. Their huge chalkboard wall, beautiful product display and stylish staff had me at hello.  Amy Hester has her shit together.  What a phenomenal business owner.  She's as talented as she is gorgeous.  I absolutely had to photograph them.  I set them up near a tiny window on the second floor with a bathroom door as a backdrop and got to work photographing each girl.  Glamorous, right? I'm pretty sure they thought I was crazy. This is just a few of the pictures that I had handy on my computer, but I was too eager to post.  So here they are!beauty headshots by Lavish Boudoir for Red Beauty Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansasbeauty headshots for Red Beauty Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansasbeauty headshots by Lavish Boudoir for Red Beauty Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansas
