Let's face it, sometimes men are just difficult to shop for. When it comes to my husband, it's always a struggle to find something that's both meaningful and something that he wants. I like to think that I'm pretty good at remembering little tidbits along the way to help me make gift decisions when it's time. Yet, the most utilized gift I've ever given my husband was a Doors t-shirt that I gave him when we first started dating... almost 15 years ago!
It’s been a long time coming, but this weekend, I will be shooting my very first Saratoga clients! AND I’ll be shooting in my new studio space! These pictures (courtesy of my husband, who’s been doing a lot of grunt work since I’m all the way on the other side of the country) are obviously the BEFORE photos. I absolutely love that it’s a blank canvas that I can dress up however I choose. It may not look like much right now, but I’ve been dreaming and creating mock-ups of what I would like the space to look like. My husband even drove 2.5 hours to the nearest Ikea to get some essentials (like curtains and the mirror for my Accessory Nook)! Now that’s what I call supportive :). I’ll be in New York for a week, so after my boudoir sessions on Sunday, I plan on spending the rest of the week perusing the local antique shops for the perfect pieces for the studio. The holy grail: the PERFECT vanity. Make sure you check back for the new and improved Cheeky Boudoir Studio in Saratoga Springs, NY!
If you’ve been following me this year, you know that I’m always travelling. Sometimes, it’s for business. Other times, I travel for pleasure or an important family event. This past August, my cousin married the girl of his dreams, and while in Sacramento, I figured I would fit some fun boudoir photo sessions in! This sexy lady has been working her butt off to compete in her local Figure Competitions, and to celebrate her hard work, she wanted to do something fun and sexy. So, naturally, when she heard that I would be in town, she booked her boudoir session! A lot of women that I shoot are incredibly nervous about getting in front of the camera; however, Miss S was so calm and excited because she knew that she could trust me and my vision.
