Last month I got to be involved with a pose coaching session in my studio. There are a ton of things that makes my job really rewarding. I feel that in photography I inspire people to be and feel better, whether it be for my clients to see themselves in a new light, to share ideas with another photographer or to help boost the portfolio of a new aspiring model. It sounds funny, but I really do believe that photography is an avenue to promote dreams, no matter what side of the camera you are on.

I’ve always aim to give back to the photography community and make our artistry as a whole better. While I don’t think I’m an expert in a lot of things, I do feel that the little I have learned is something that I can pass on to others. I had two photographer join me that day in the studio and we got to shoot a darling bubbly girl who really needed a portfolio uplift. I love working with new models because I can give them something really great, quality images that really reflect their potential. So all in all this was a day that really encompasses all the beautiful things photography brings into my life: Awesome people, the sharing knowledge, beautiful images, and the building of dreams.

This sexy lady here is serious about her fitness. She is a personal trainer in San Francisco, but don’t let this sweet body fool you. She loves cookies! The first time I met her that all she talked about. It’s good to note that this is only of the reasons I think she is awesome. Besides the fact that she is fun and into interested things like muy thai. She proves that as long as you are driven and WORK HARD, you can still love cookies.

I’ve always been in love with the comfy sexy look, so sweaters are something I’m really fond about when it comes to boudoir wardrobe, but my new favorite obsession is the springtime inspired kimonos! I mean, they are just so feminine and romantic. It embodies the idea of all the things women are. And of course when you put it on a girl who says that she is “normally awkward” and she walks aways saying that you are the only person that can capture her pretty side, you sorta are just giddy and grateful that moments like this can exist for you and her.

In my six years of shooting boudoir. I have never met a mom that wasn’t concerned about her curvy figure. I often hear, “I could never look like those women in your pictures.” Well the truth is, those women are, you! I honestly can’t think of any woman who deserves to feel special more than a mom. Embracing your curves is what we do in the studio.

K says in her review….

Mother’s day is coming up and I challenge any moms who have been thinking about a session to come into the studio, show me your curves and walk away feeling amazing about them!

I use to drive by this space everyday and I would look into the parking lot and see the rows of big windows and say to myself, wouldn’t it be awesome if I could have a space there? You know how they say that you manifest your deepest desires. I think I manifested this opportunity and although I probably wasn’t in the best position to take it, I took a risk and did it anyway! Seeing it all come together has been a dream.

My first session in the new space was with a sweet, loyal and dependable bombshell. I’m so glad to have met K. When I’m in the studio I really get to connect with women and I am touched to hear her amazing story of loss, recovery and strength. Boudoir is very touching to me because I get to see women for their inner beauty too! She is gorgeous inside and out. With this new location I’m excited to be able to connect with more women and hear their stories.

Happy Sexy Saturday.
