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.

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.

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.

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 J - Fashion Boudoir

Miss J has done so many shoots with us.  You can see her photos in our marketing materials and at these links (and probably more I couldn't dig up): This is one of my favorite beauty pictures I've ever taken.  Thank you to Makeup by Adeana for such a dramatic look that brought to life exactly what I imagined.

Thanks to Lindsay Adler's class on Creative Live for the retouching lesson.  It's a whole new level.

I have so many more to retouch, and because this is a very bold look, it's going to take forever at about an hour/image.  So here is a sneak peek of the fabulous Miss J whose inner fire has sparked creativity in me so much.  Thank you to Adeana, who rocked this makeup.  Who knew a girl with a tan and freckles could look so pretty with porcelain skin?? lavish boudoir red head model
