Ms. Lindsay NY Boudoir

I met Lindsay one fateful evening in NYC through a mutual friend.  I had gone into the city with two of my best friends to work and have fun, and we ended up deciding to go out down by west 4th street. I remember this night clearly because that was the night I got into a fight with the bouncer at Down the Hatch and got kicked out of the bar lol! You know me, always standing up for the under-dog and getting myself into trouble 😉  But this is a story for another day! lol!

Anyway, Lindsay and I totally vibed so we kept in touch and when she told me she wanted to shoot with me I was thrilled!  We planned her shoot and really set a tone to what she was going for and made the plans for me to come into the city for a hotel session for her!  We scored a hotel in Times Square and set to work creating one of my favorite most inspiring sessions to date.  I normally shoot very bright and vibrant, but something about Lindsay’s chill energy and comfort in her own skin allowed me to push my own limits and shoot for a darker and more raw type of look.  This session really pushed me out of my comfort zone to really embrace the sensuality and and the energy of female sexuality.

I think you will start to see more of this type of energy in my future sessions, there was something very empowering for me about pushing myself and my client a bit past our normal comfort zone to create something very true to both of us.

I am heading back to NYC next week for 3 more client sessions and I am really looking forward to seeing what we create.

Ms. Kate Outdoor Boudoir

I decided to do  a little something different and create a video of Kate’s images along with sharing them here.

Kate’s session was pretty special to me, because she came in open hearted and accepting of whatever crazy things I threw her way, like putting butterflies into her hair and playing with a large crystal. One of the things I think we learned from this session is that sexy is all a frame of mind. Your session can be anything that you want from flirty and whimsical to dark and demure.  We decided to take a little dive into the imagination with this one…there is an air of magic about the session.  We caught about 1 hour of clear skies between awful storms on the day of Kate’s session…the light left behind by the storm really gave a sort of eerie and gorgeous glow to the environment, add some fog off of the lake and you have a picture perfect setting for this mystical shoot.

Ms. Heather Boudoir

This session was a tipping point in style for me. I really am starting to love a sort of moodier image, and it all really clicked in for me when I was working with Heather.  This is actually one of the few sessions were I also did the clients makeup on my own too!

Heather really brought it for our session and I could not pick a more perfect blog post to share on this Moody Monday.

Ms. Stephanie Boudoir

What better way to get back into the blogging mood than by featuring this Takk House session with Ms. Stephanie.  Her super sweet lingerie and soft rose gold makeup pallet by Erin Marie Artistry worked super well with the vintage eclectic vibe of the Takk House bridal suite!

Tiane Novati Winter 2015

It is always a great time when I get to work with Tara Holmes of Tiane Novati and Erin Marzilli of EMARZMAKEUP. Tara and I are always dreaming up fun ideas for styled shoots, and when I knew she was working on some awesome fall/winter bridal headpieces for 2015, my mind started to flood with ideas.  I knew that I wanted to capture something that really spoke to the changing of the seasons, so I sent Tara a few images of this large tulle skirt I envisioned, and boy oh boy did she deliver! We found the amazing vintage fur and cashmere sweater and leather vest at Dang! That’s Cherry, these two pieces really drove the concept of the shoot home.

I really loved all of the details Tara pulled together, soft, vintage and muted. Just like with Tara, when I told the concept of a darker more edgy make-up to juxtapose the softness of the bridal style, Erin stepped up and delivered exactly that: A sexy, edgy bridal look that is sure to turn heads!

The best part of all, is the discovery that our “groom”, Kee, is also a bad-ass hairstylist, right in the middle of getting ready!  I was kind of obsessed with the laid back half up-half down do that he gave our gorgeous “bride”, Eliza!

We decided to style the shoot just like I would a first-look and pre-ceremony session with a real bride and groom. You know me, always looking to create a story!

So without further exposition, enjoy our wedding story…
