boudoir :: miss j

I absolutely love when my clients take an active role in brainstorming ideas for their shoot. Miss J was all over this. When we met for her session, her and her boyfriend had thought up a bunch of amazing ideas for our session. And let me tell you, she was beyond stunning.

Here are some of the saucy photos from her session.

One of my most anticipated moments is seeing what my clients bring in for their boudoir session. For me, it like is shopping without the bill (and who doesn’t like that?!). So when Miss M showed up for her session, I was beyond excited. She covered all the bases from casual to girly to super sexy!

I’m so excited to share with you some of my favorites from her session.

the first man i loved taught me to LOVE photography

I learned on his Nikon. A vintage Nikon. Film. Manual exposure and autofocus. A Nikon that is at least as old as I am (yes, it still working after 26 years now). It was the camera that made me love photography.

This past Sunday, I was so happy to spend the day with my wonderful Dad, Ken. He has been such an amazing father is so many ways – teaching me to ride a bike, cooking me delicious¬†dinners (pulled pork, chicken¬†enchiladas, egg plant parm… I learned to make it all from him!), taking our family on incredible vacations, and more.

He is also the person who really helped fall in love with photography.

Fathers Day, Nikon

From letting me use his vintage Nikon, to getting me new lenses, to surprising me with a new Nikon as a high school Christmas gift, to building me a mini dark room in our basement, to running around to camera stores with me… Dad really showed me this amazing art.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad. You have made me a better person through all your support, love and advice.
