BOUDOIR DIARY

Happy Chrismukkawanzaa

and anything that you may drink to.

I tortured my poor whiny babies so I can send pictures to my parents.
Notice pink background to match my blog (nerd)



and in this one I look good.^_^ Notice side parted bangs after chopping incident.



Here I was attempting to bring props, first one is what are you doing?
I giggled when I say: Just some gold balls.



My son ended up all glittery a la twilight vampire.

And I haven't posted much because I am launching a new site with the new year... and another blog to my repertoire, some funny stuff happens behind the scenes. I am addicted.

xxoo

Boudoir Express Stars

Well, I will like to thank the 5 ladies plus 2 gents that attended my first ever Boudoir Photography Marathon.
Too much fun, too much Bianco and too many files I still have to go through and retouch. Yay. Im thinking on doing this 2 times a year at the most. Want to host a Boudoir Party? Check out the Group Boudoir package and book a hotel. You get good deals in the winter.


Oh and hiding identities is really hard!

Gift idea for HER!

I think it's a great gift to give to your girlfriend you get to share the results of course, so it is the gift that keeps on giving. (wink)

And if you do it for your friend, I've been told I am a morale booster. All-natural, good-for-you mood enhancer. I am not talking about all the photoshoping I do, it is secondary. But when you see yourself through somebody else's eyes, and after all those jokes and teasing, you actually see some sexy pictures, well I did my job. That reminds me, I should update my testimonials page.


Gift Certificates available! Share the gift of naked. semi-naked.

Or if you are not into this, I do regular portraits as well. You could get a couples session outdoors! Photography is the perfect gift!

Gift Ideas for HIM

I had a little panic attack to realize that Christmas is a month away. And I do not have an idea to get as presents. dang it.
I did some research, dang it again, and budgets are killing me. But I have some nice ideas for you! Lucky!

Of course ME!
So make him a little bit warm.

And some other things I found on the internet. This one was sent by the fiance as a hint I think, cool stuff. yankodesign.com

For photogeeks like me with no money for a NIkon D4 my fave is photojojo

And I decided to cover any bases. I really want the new Nikon D3s
why did I go to the launch? Im a masochist.

Corset

I love corsets. I <3 a deal, who knew that H&M had this lacy thing with the annoying straps with the round thingy going in at an angle in a slide motion (as annoying as that sounds) to hold the thigh highs. Really, women used to do these every day. And they look awesome.




I love meeting interesting people this way, and this client mentioned about promoting boudoir for military wives. Great! I will do a service to the nation, sort of. Now how do I find them?

Happy Friday

So this weekend I volunteer at Art on the Loft. Come check it out. I'm at artist's assistant on Saturday and Sunday, not sure what that means or entails, but I will be around asking artist if they want naked pics to come to me, yeah a little self promotion there from my volunteering efforts.

And I was way lazy with my Halloween pics. Of course I dressed up- super 80's. My problem was to convince Lindsey not to wear a dress I found at a garage sale. Really I did not know he had these tendencies. My second argument was that he had no shoes to go with the dress. So there. I still did his makeup to dress him up a little billy idol-esque and trust me, for him wearing all black is a costume, so I enjoyed that part. He complained 3 days later he still couldn't take all the eyeliner off. sissy. He did get a "you look like patrick swayze".

Notes for next year: practice dirty dancing.

Poker face

Yes I have that song stuck to in my head! I can't shake it! I have to say I enjoyed last weeks shoots and here is a sample of one with a poker theme. There is a fine line between cheesy and sexy and I think that we stayed on the sexy side :)



And well, the lucky recipient got a poster size print of the one in the left, and I will ad it as an option for the starlet package. great gift idea! choose a theame and flow with it!

you take the love with you

I mentioned to Lindsey I wanted to recreate this one in honor of the late Patrick Swayze, and I got a: now? Im tired... but who needs men when you have photoshop! my corny version :)

Boudoir for Couples

I enjoy boudoir sessions with just one on one, but every now and then I get the adventurous couple.
And what a great couple, so comfortable with each other. I'm just saying, that after 15 years of marriage you still look at each other like they did, you did something right. And she runs. I better start running if that butt is the result (!)

Psst... this post is old but it still gets lots of hits, must be the awesome butt.
So I am keeping it.
But if you are interested in a boudoir session for both of you is fun!

A testimonial:
"The best photoshoot I have ever had" Husband while holding wife's boobs.

christine + blake

and another wedding! I think is the last of mine for the season. This one is for Christine, Lindsey's cousin, so a very cozy wedding with great fall colours, the best freaking day weather wise and it was nice to meet everybody.

So pretty!



These where by Lindsey, he gets in the bushes and worries at what he has stuck on him after... :)


And of course we have none of us... sigh, and we dress up and no picture, next time first thing we are doing. But we still get in each others way :)

Sarah+Byron

I've been lazy to post! But I have been so busy with the other type of photography. Lot's of family shots for the friends and family and the ex-boyfriend (yes as awkward as that sounds) and wedding season. Haven't had time to post anything naked.

So here is Sarah and Byron, during the reception they showed us their very creative version of Hugh Grants Pop goes my heart.


It definitely made my top 5 favorite reception moments. Im taking notes.






And my friend Cyrille borrowed the camera, its ok he's a Nikon parent too.


Note to self, stand straight... Note to Lindsey... Patrick Swayze in dirty dancing wants his hip sway back.

AND ! a miracle of miracles... me not making a face. I always make this weird thing with my eye when I know I camera is pointing in my direction. Kudos Cyrille.

Bryan and Natalia's wedding highlights

So here are some images from my weekend where I was not the photographer but it gave a chance to play with the lens baby.
Love the baby.
It was a beautiful wedding, great location, great company and I could chill... mmm.
The only complaint here, freaking mosquitos.










and yes that is me wearing a blue dress (gasp! colour!) I know. Me. The one Lindsey calls "going to a summer funeral"

Natalia and Bryan at the Distillery

Although I hate the name e-shoot, it seems it is the industry term. So here is another e-shoot... ta-daa.
Bryan is Lindsey's friend and he is in the wedding party for this coming Saturday. Which means I'm in the girl(drinking) table :) Bryan's sister is shooting the wedding which means I will drink and maybe take a couple of pics, and drink, and I can wear a dress, and drink. :P

Action shots

I like it when clients have a interest in photography. I like it when we all share :)
She did a great job and capturing me in action.
love them, changing my facebook pic right after this:)


And I am trying this out, it was one of my faves of my candid photographer, some creative cropping to preserve her identity. Groomsooky helped on this one, I wanted to put a black bar across her face.

Bethany + Kurt... Casa Loma Wedding

You know what I apologize for re-posting, but I realized that I hate clicking on slideshows, show me the images I say.








I finished editing...yay!
To be honest, I do few weddings a year, naked is my forte, but the ones I do, its great because I already have a rapport with the bride.
They are longer days and there is always a few snafus but they are always beautiful.
Like in this wedding, the sun came out in time for pictures. again... yay!

Casa Loma Wedding

So! here is a sneak peek for this wedding. They went two weeks to cancun so I have loads of time to edit pictures. Great couple, great location and they where non-traditional like me! No head table, no cake and a dj that only played sixties music. And the Rogers guy from the commercials was there too.
More to come!
