People have been asking how long I've been a boudoir photographer... and I surprise even myself when I say 6 years. Holy cow. That's a long time. I started in a home studio in Valdosta, Georgia. I knew basically no one, but I needed a portfolio. So I dug around on some modeling websites and found A. We had a collaboration with Randy Buchanan (makeup artist) and decided to go for it. She was the first model for whom I started coaching emotion. Not only was she aaaaadorable, but she was so sweet and totally trusted me. That might have been when I knew this genre was for me. Thank you, A, for trusting me and being my guinea pig. I still love these photos, even though it's 6 years, and 3 studios late. Love from Albuquerque, Leslie.
