When I speak with women who I haven't worked with before, I often hear, "That's something that I've always wanted to do! I just wish I could afford it!" Yes, a quality boudoir experience is an investment. I've setup my sessions and product offerings to reflect the needs of the majority of my clients, which can be out of reach to some women who really want to work with me. So, for a limited time (because I really believe that every woman deserves a quality boudoir photo shoot), I'm going to change things up a bit.
When I was in Las Vegas last March, I had the opportunity to join a fantastic group of photographers for a speakeasy-themed shootout, put together by Stacie Frazier of Haute Shots Boudoir. Knowing that I would be moving my studio from a great natural light space to my Saratoga Springs boudoir studio, where I would be relying on studio lights, I thought that this would be the perfect setting for me to play around with various studio light types and techniques. Stacie and her team at Hera Beauty did an AMAZING job with securing the perfect location, models, and styling for this one-of-a-kind opportunity.

Every year, thousands of photographers flock to Las Vegas for the annual WPPI convention. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet up with new and old colleagues, learn new photography techniques, and stretch our creative muscles. Last year, I participated in a boudoir shootout in the GORGEOUS Barbie Suite at The Palms. This year, in addition to a great stylized shoot, I worked on my own with a local model for an in-studio posing guide that I’ve had in my head for quite some time. Here are shots from a great strip tease sequence from that photo shoot! If this inspires you for your own photo shoot, my suggestions for wardrobe selection would be to find items that (1) you can layer on top of each other (maybe a nice bra and panty set underneath a little black dress), and/or (2) have ties/buttons/zippers!
