Baby Boom - Maternity Boudoir

Is it just me or there is something in the water? Earlier this year I had more than a handful of clients come get their boudoir done with "now before I show" and "while boobs are great", even returning boudoir clients getting their maternity boudoir shots...
Well, here I am joining the baby boom.

 To find a creative way to announce it, I've been on pinterest, instagram and even google, since you know, I have some creative license here, but all I found was family shots holding a chalkboard, or the holding the tray of "bun", cute stuff really but not really my style.
And since is a family shot, I need my clothes on.
So instead of going crazy trying to come up with something witty and original, I went back to basics. I like batman, I like comic books, I will bring to this world another batman fan if I have anything to say about it so here it is...

See? totally nerding it out. I still giggle at Nacho being the baby stunt double. I was also this close into convincing Lindsey to wear something black, but no luck. I was pushing it on a Sunday afternoon.

Anyway the timing could not be better either, I will be still doing boudoir for x-mas and maybe some Valentines till the second week of January- if this baby is not early and then taking a break until spring. 
It's usually quiet around those times anyway.

And here are some samples of some of the maternity shots I have been doing.

Things I learned going to a strip bar

It is really not the same as taking a pole dancing class that is for sure :)

It was 1996 when I first went to one, I just wanted to see what the fuss was about. Yeah, it was nothing like "Showgirls" that movie I saw to check out what the saved by the bell girl was up to. Or "striptease" with Demi Moore for that matter. No fancy choreography. boobs were not that perky or they did not move at all, no in between.

Fast forward to last night, the choreography hasn't changed much but the bodies sure are perkier. Or they work out more, or maybe I notice those things more that I am not as perky as I once use to be. 

Anyway here are a couple of observations in random order of importance. 

  • The lighting is really dimmed. Great to hide stretch marks, stray hairs or dimples. Not good for photography.
  • A handkerchief or bandana is not just for blowing your nose. They use it to sit comfortably on any surface or lap while wearing dental floss underwear. smart!
  • Tapping someone on their shoulder with your butt or boobs is acceptable.
  • They take rejection really well, after all that wiggling if the guy is not interested in a lap dance they just shrug it off. next!
  • They still have to pay for their own booze! You would think they get a discount since they are the main attraction but no. And it's 12 a drink. The horror.
  • Best poses: when the butt was stuck out to the max, and tilting your head back to make hair longer and look like you are really enjoying yourself.
  • Touching self looks great, unless one leg is up the air like a karate kick, and then you touch your  vagina. I still giggle. You had to be there. 
  • All the dancers wear those platform heels or "stripper shoes". Apparently they are very comfortable and have skid resistant soles. Fitness models wear them too. So I shouldn't call them stripper shoes. They look good in pictures. They actually go with a thong. 
  • It was not very busy when I was there, but the client ratio of "normal looking guy" vs. your-dad's-weirdo-friend was about 20/80. 
  • Even entertainers don't want their face posted all over the internet. 
See? I respect you like a stripper :) 

So bring out your inner stripper, we all have one I think. 
Anyway back to work people :)
