Girl Crush
April 5, 2009

So, if I were to have a crush on a girl, I think it would have to be on Kelly Wearstler. She is an icon of style in my mind, both in interior design and fashion…so very glamorous…even in just jeans! According to her website she is coming out with a new book this year….can’t wait!

High School Senior Shoot
March 30, 2009

What a fun day Saturday turned out to be! I had the high school senior shoot and Madison came over with her mom, Lisa and we shot some inside and then headed out to the trails behind my place for some more casual shots. It was a gorgeous day and we didn’t have wind to contend with…finally! Madison was quite the natural in front of the camera, don’t ya think?

The Trials of Being a Woman
March 26, 2009

Interesting article on plastic surgery & how it relates to fashion today…Perk & Work – http://www.style.com/vogue/feature/2009/03/perk-work
(Linking isn’t working on my blog for some reason lately…uggh)

Fashion designers now design for augmented bodies. Great! More pressure to go under the knife….sigh. Will there ever come a time again that celebrates a real woman’s beauty without her feeling that she has to have the smallest waistline, the largest breasts and the tightest, little bodies in order to be considered pretty? I find it disturbing that the trend is to have SURGERY in order to feel good about oneself. Let’s celebrate ourselves as we are…real, natural, and beautiful regardless of what the media dictates to us!

KISS Albums
February 17, 2009

On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a fun and informative demo shoot by The Boudoir Divas, sponsored by KISS Wedding Books. There was a KISS Book on hand that I wanted to share with you. I took a quick video so you could get a look. (The video would not embed on my blog so click HERE to view it). KISS Books are quite simple really, but the quality is outstanding! The covers are high-quality leather and come in a variety of different color choices (black, white, hot pink, red, etc), and the pages are soo thick. Really impressive looking books! Your images would look beautiful in an album like this! And with my background in graphic design I could make it look really special.

I also attended the WPPI tradeshow yesterday for wedding and portrait photographers. I made special note of specialty papers for printing photos. I have always been curious about metallic paper but had heard it might not be suitable for skin tone in portraiture. I saw firsthand that this was wrong. I was blown away at how beautiful portraits looked on metallic paper. So, this is now something I will be offering for your prints.

Valentine’s Day or Boudoir Shoot Lingerie
January 30, 2009

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I thought I would share some sweet looks in lingerie that would double nicely as a gift but would also look lovely for a boudoir photo shoot! For boudoir shoots I recommend COLOR, bright, beautiful color. If you must do black, try to make it interesting, by selecting something with unusual details.

Agent Provocateur has long been a favorite of mine. Their items are a little less frilly and sexy in a more grown-up way than other lingerie collections I have come across.

La Perla has some sexy, unusual collections right now too.

And if you are looking for FUN, look no further than Trashy Lingerie! They have some of the cutest looks imaginable!
