01.19.17 { DARKER IS BETTER }

follow me to the bedroom…

turn off the lights…

take a breath….

bare our souls…

There is MUCH much much more to say on the subject of ‘dark’ and I’m sort of freaking out in anticipation of it being ready… but I can say this… this is a look that fulfills me on a really deep level and it’s amazing to take my clients to this deep, dark, delicious, sexy place.

These images are from a single ‘Scene’ of the Independent Shoot (just $299 for a limited time).

07.07.15 { BY THE DESERT BY THE WATER }

I love this little corner of the earth… I love that it allows me to feel the magic of dust & weeds & water & birds & the most incredible, soul spearing light at sunset.

Styling Dira, I felt my heart bursting… it was exactly what I wanted and exactly how I felt. Dark and light. Witchy and magical. Seductive and innocent.

Shooting Fashion Boudoir in the great outdoors never ceases to bring the emotion up and up and up. And that’s just how I like it ;)

07.06.15 { SURRENDER TO IT }

Art imitates Life for me.

As an artist who likes to have her creative hand in every piece of my photo shoots… and as a ‘nope, not good enough yet’ girl (I hesitate to say ‘Perfectionist’ because… i don’t know, it just doesn’t feel right) I have come to know the feeling of self doubt and questioning myself REALLY well. Lately, a few people in my life have been pushing me to get over myself and SURRENDER. To the process. To what will be. To my intuition. To looking like a fool. To being afraid. To going for it.

And it’s so funny that that is exactly what I do for my clients on their photo shoot. Once I grasp an idea or get a vision, I bring them to the point of surrender. Because they’re not models. Because it’s scary. Because my Boudoir style is pretty Edgy sometimes. Because they can’t know what’s in my head. Because they trust me. Because it’s up to me to make their shoot everything I can see in my head. Or, to put it in Cowboy vernacular… to ride them hard and put them away WET. Which… it seems, more often than not, is LITERALLY what I do. Well… just the wet part. I’m heavy, I can’t ride them like a horse.

So… what did it take to get the stellar Isabel Foxen Duke to surrender to having water dumped all over her? Nothing more than a ‘OHHHH!!! I know what we’re doing!’ and a wicked laugh. She screamed to high heaven but… she trusted me to do my thing. So that’s exactly what I did.

04.08.15 { STYLE MEETS SOUL }

My sweet sister-friend Jahnavi was my first choice to be my ‘model’ for the Workshop I taught in Napa this past September. I met her at a hugely transformational course I took in NYC and instantly fell in love with her face and her spirit. We didn’t know how or when but we both set a desire to have me photograph her. And of course, less than 3 months later, it happened like magic.

In Jahnavi I see the same thing I try to create in my work. Vulnerability, fierceness, beauty, and a little something to keep you on your toes.

As always, I wish I had SO much more time to actually take photos during a Workshop… but I managed to snag a few of this precious woman on the veranda of our private villa.

04.06.15 { ROADSIDE MAGIC }

Following the STYLE + Soul Workshop in Napa, I spent the day with my sweet friend, Jahnavi (straight hair), who had flown down from Oregon to be my ‘model’ and my incredible Workshop attendee, Maria (curly hair), who came out from Pennsylvania and made us ALL feel at home in the private Villa by making us delicious homemade breakfasts each day. Can you come back, Maria?

The day happened totally organically & spontaneously, as the three of us realized we all had free time until the evening (the other attendees had already left). So I brought all my boudoir wardrobe and worked some beauty magic in the parking lot of Target ;)

We went for lunch and drove down the Silverado Trail… and then… magic. As it always happens with my photo shoots, there is something on the side of the road, a certain light, a certain feeling, a certain structure etc. that catches my eye. We spun around and I quickly pulled some wardrobe & accessories together for them and we had a ton of fun in the few minutes we were in this little slice of Napa heaven.

And yes, it’s pretty clear these two amazing women have a little love thing goin’ on. So I exploited it. :)
