I recently had the opportunity to photograph the lovely Karina Precious – which was an incredible time! This sexy photoshoot has just been featured on Vologlam, so take a minute to check it out and read the great interview with Karina! Here’s an excerpt: How long have you been modeling? Are you a full time or part time model? If part time, what do you do for your main gig? Modelling has been my passion since I got into dancing, like 6 years ago. After I moved to New York it became my part time job although I am still shooting not very frequently but only when I am feeling inspired or impressed with photographer’s talent. In every day life I am a dancer and student in Fashion institute in New York. Read more…

Thinking about getting your special lady a boudoir session? “What on earth am I going to get her?” Guys, how many times have you said this when it’s been your lady’s birthday or a special holiday?

Need some confidence for a boudoir photo shoot? Should have. Could have. Would have. Nothing’s worse than having a list of regrets, don’t you agree? It’s not that we don’t have good intentions. But way too often, it’s fear that can hold us back from doing the things that we’d love to do. Sometimes it’s fear of failure. Other times, it’s fear of the unknown. Either way, fear can be the ultimate confidence killer! So what are you supposed to do when you want to apply for a different job, pursue a new relationship or take some sexy boudoir shots… but you feel afraid? First, know that you aren’t alone. Realize that everyone feels afraid from time to time. Everyone has self doubt. But what can set you apart from the rest is how you handle your fears. My advice: Zap those negative thoughts, focus solely on your goals and truly believe you can achieve them. Because guess what? You can. The definition of confidence is actually “the state of feeling certain about the truth of something.” So ask yourself: What do you truly want? Answer yourself truthfully… And then go for it! You can do anything you […]

Boudoir photography NYC – It’s all about YOU! Have you ever stopped in the middle of a crazy day and realized that any turmoil going on inside of you is exactly what’s going on outside?

Picking out the perfect wardrobe for boudoir photos You’ve taken a giant step. You’ve contacted me and made an appointment to have an incredible boudoir photography shoot. Now the big question looming on your mind is: What do I wear? Relax! This is a very common question that I get asked when a first-time client books my services. If you’ve never done a boudoir shoot before, I often suggest enjoying a day on the town shopping for lingerie. Or, if you love shopping that much, bring your best girlfriends and make it into a full weekend of fun! Boudoir is all about you, and spending the time to prepare yourself can be incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. When you’re shopping for items to wear, make sure that you feel comfortable in them. Buy lingerie that reflects your own personal style, and avoid trying to wear something that really isn’t you. Some women choose to cover themselves up more than others during their boudoir shoots. There’s nothing wrong with this at all. Whether you choose a bodysuit or a barely-there thong, your choice of lingerie is simply a reflection of your unique personality. A good rule of thumb is that if you like how it looks in the […]

To me, it represents a time that we, as women, should celebrate femininity and truly loving ourselves! All of you mothers, daughters, girlfriends, wives, single ladies — treat yourself well in the new year. Let’s indulge when it comes to loving ourselves. THAT is what 2017 should be about. Treat Yourself Well In The New Year Just how do we treat ourselves like the incredible women we are? Here are a few ways that I recommend: Respect yourself! This is such a simple concept, but how many times a day do you find yourself engaging in negative self talk? The truth is, we all tend to beat ourselves up a little bit in some way or another… whether we get down about our weight, our inability to get a promotion or something […]
